The Heritage Foundation’s Edwin Meese III Center for Judicial and Legal Studies published a study that highlights the fact that a stunning 27 of the 30 cities with the highest homicide rates are Democrat run.
FOX News pointed out that the study says, “27….[of the 30 cities] have Democratic mayors. Within those cities, there are at least 14 “rogue prosecutors” either backed or inspired by billionaire Democrat supporter George Soros.”
According to The Daily Signal, the authors of the report, Charles Stimson, Zack Smith, and Kevin D. Dayaratna pointed out that “Those on the Left know that their soft-on-crime policies have wreaked havoc in the cities where they have implemented those policies.”
Stimson, Smith, and Dayaratna went on to say:
"It is not hard to understand why ‘reforms’ such as ending cash bail, defunding the police, refusing to prosecute entire categories of crimes, letting thousands of convicted felons out of prison early, significantly cutting the prison population, and other ‘progressive’ ideas have led to massive spikes in crime—particularly violent crime, including murder—in the communities where those on the Left have implemented them."
CNN recently quoted Hillary Clinton saying that Republicans were “just trying to gin up all kinds of fear and anxiety in people.”
She went on to say, “[The Republicans] are not dealing with it. They are not trying to tackle it. So I view it as an effort to scare voters.”
The study undercuts these views.
