The pandemic of crime in blue cities across the United States is getting uglier and uglier. Many of these cities have to live with the consequences of destructive policies they’ve brought to fruition.
Some examples of these policies include defunding law enforcement, not mandating criminals pay cash bail ahead of their trials, and even letting dangerous criminals out of incarceration.
Democrats allow these horrific policies to play out simultaneously. Then, when crime sees an uptick, Democrats sit back and ask themselves how it all happened.
To rational individuals, the answer could not be more apparent. Nevertheless, new information from TheBlaze proves that blue cities struggling with crime still have yet to learn their lesson.
The parole board of New York decided this month to release cop killer Darryl Jeter from incarceration. In 1984, Jeter murdered police officer Irma Lozada by shooting her two times in the head.
Yet, despite this, Jeter is out and free to bring more harm to other police officers trying to protect and serve the community. Jeter isn’t an anomaly, though. In under 24 months, the parole board of New York has elected to release 23 different cop killers.
New York has a serious crime problem, and they’re far from the only blue city like this in the United States. There’s a direct connection between releasing criminals from prison, doing away with cash bail laws, and defunding the police, leading to more crime.
Anyone who is paying attention can see it. If the parole board of New York continues on its current trajectory (which they most likely will), then the streets of the Empire State are about to get a lot more dangerous.
There’s no telling what Jeter’s state of mind is or which police officers could be in danger due to poor judgment on the part of the New York parole board.
Over the weekend, the Police Benevolent Association responded to the news of Jeter’s release. They were not happy.
According to the Police Benevolent Association, law enforcement feels “devastated” by the decision. The police union furthermore described the parole board’s decision to release Jeter as an insult to female police officers who put their lives at risk to protect and serve their communities.
Lozada’s death in 1984 happened when she was only 25 years of age. It also made her the very first female police officer in New York City to die on the job.
