Too much nanny state not enough self responsibility,
poor communities turn to other methods to make money like selling drugs, multiple people do this,
the area becomes less safe as they fight for dominance over the area to sell their drugs and make money,
because jobs leave the area gets poorer and others have difficulty getting out so they end up joining the gangs,
gang lifestyle means they have unprotected sex with women often and end up have multiple kids with multiple women
the kids grow up without a father figure to teach them and it's difficult for one parent to parent properly, these kids are more likely to join gangs and look for a father figure there.
The cycle goes on no amount of police can stop it really.
There are more statistics that apply to children growing up in a single household
Also the fact with it being a city, population density is always a factor, the more people you have the more crime you have, on all levels of society.
Probably, a lot of left wing leaders try to pander to these thuggish crowds of people that have been destroying cities.
Instead of cracking down on them and police don't want to just stand by while this happened. and be blamed by their own leaders for shit they haven't done.
imagine siding with the group that is siding with the guy rushing the officer with a knife in this video against the police.
Obviously the police are going to be pissed, even in Atlanta there was a load of police that walked off the job because their leaders were basically trying to apply felony murder charges to an officer that was defending himself from a guy with a taser.
A week earlier the person who is now trying to prosecute the officer said that a taser is a deadly weapon.
Yes this is correct. I think they took away 1 billion dollars from the NYPD budget. Not sure about that number
Sounds pretty insane to me to cut the budget so much especially during a pandemic but what do I know.
