Poll- 77% of Americans Concerned About Rising Crime

Image
A majority of Americans say they are concerned about rising crime in U.S. cities, according to a new Harvard CAPS/Harris poll released exclusively to The Hill on Monday.
Seventy-seven percent of respondents say they are concerned that crime is rising in the nation’s cities, while 46 percent of respondents said they were concerned about rising crime in their own communities.
"At the same time they see an increase of violence and crime and are concerned that prosecutors are not prosecuting the crimes — they blame the protests and the high unemployment when asked what is responsible for the spike in violence," said Harvard CAPS/Harris polling director Mark Penn. "They also single out social media for being used to coordinate violence and in their view not doing much to curb it." “At the same time they see an increase of violence and crime and are concerned that prosecutors are not prosecuting the crimes — they blame the protests and the high unemployment when asked what …

Utopian Goal, Meet Violent Reality. Place Where George Floyd Died Becomes Police No-Go Zone

Image
The NY Times reports that the area in Minneapolis where George Floyd was killed has become a memorial of sorts for people from all over the country who come to pay their respects. Because of the obvious tension with police, it has also become a no-go zone for the cops. And that has been fine during the day when things remain peaceful, but at night it becomes a different story:
Two months after the police killing of George Floyd, the four-block area of South Minneapolis where he gasped his last breaths remains a sacred space, a no-go zone for officers. There is a neatly trimmed garden, anchored by a sculpture of a raised fist. There are colorful murals and the words “I can’t breathe” painted across the pavement, as well as the names of dozens of other Black people killed by the police. At night, though, the space is increasingly a battleground, with shootings and drug overdoses. The area has had an uptick in gun violence similar to what other cities have seen in the wake of protests…  “…

Barr Nukes Mainstream Narrative

Image
There was a lot of coverage of the Democrats’ efforts to take on Attorney General Bill Barr yesterday during a hearing largely about the federal response to the BLM riots.
As has been reported, it largely blew up in their faces. There was even a highlight reel of his responses, which is terrific.
Not only did Barr successfully defend himself from attack and “eat their lunch,” in the words of pundit Michael Goodwin, he went after them for their failure to condemn the rioting across the country and the people behind it with an assist from Jim Jordan, as we reported.
Here’s the clip that Jordan played, that showed the widow of David Dorn among other victims and a lot of the horrible attacks and violence that have been a part of these riots. That really puts paid to the ‘peaceful’ narrative Democrats have tried to construct.

D.A.- "Bail Reform has not made our community safer. It’s done just the opposite."

Image
Since the passing of New York’s Bail Reform laws, there’s been an increase in the number of people re-offending before having their day in court.
"On most cases that we get right now that people are released, they catch a second charge."
Oneida County District Attorney Scott McNamara is now fielding many calls from victims who are wondering how the offenders are back out on the street. Oneida County Sheriff Rob Maciol is getting the same calls.
"Bail Reform has not made our community safer. It’s done just the opposite."
The District Attorney says the criminals know they aren’t going to jail, and aren’t afraid to admit it.
"Increased crime which means increased victimization, and making the community less safe, and right now you know it’s the wild, wild west we’re dealing with right now. I mean it’s like people are saying to the police: you can’t arrest me for this."
The Sheriff spoke about a number of cases where there’s been re-offenses. One involving setting …

Meet Tony "T.J." Wiggins, 26, Has 230 Previous Felony Charges, Arrested for 3 Murders

Image
Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd said detectives have arrested two men and a woman responsible for the fatal shootings of three friends found dead while they were headed to a fishing trip near Frostproof on Friday night.
At a news conference Wednesday, Judd identified the suspects as Tony “T.J.” Wiggins, 26; his girlfriend Mary Whittemore, 27; and Wiggins’ brother William “Robert” Wiggins, 21.
Tony Wiggins was first arrested at age 12 and has a history of 230 felony charges including battery and weapons charges, Judd said. He has been convicted 15 times and served two terms in state prison, Judd said.
“He’s wild and he’s out of control.  He's pure evil in the flesh," the sheriff said.
A video recording shows that the fatal encounter apparently began when the victims and suspects ran into each other Friday night at a nearby Dollar General Store, Judd said. In describing the shooting scene, the sheriff said T.J. Wiggins screamed at one of the victims, “You stole the engine out of my …

"The Cost of Bail Reform was My Daughter's Life"

Image
Less than a year ago, life was good.  I was the proud mother of  two beautiful daughters and grandma to the sweetest eight-month old girl  you'd ever seen.  We were planning a gender-reveal for the arrival of  Caitlynne's second baby when everything went wrong.
My daughter's husband, Alex Guajardo, had been on a downward spiral.  In May 2019, he  was arrested for a second DWI and a hit-and-run.  He received what is called a personal recognizance or free PR bond and was released from  jail.  In July, he was arrested again on a charge of assault-family  violence for assaulting Caitlynne, who was then 17-weeks pregnant.  My daughter made a brave move and filed criminal charges against Alex for  beating her up.
Immediately following Alex's arrest, I begged Caitlynne to stay with me so I could protect her and the babies.  She refused.  Caitlynne had convinced herself that the system would protect her.  She reasoned that because her husband was going before a judge to  face a …

UPDATE- Federal Judge Attacker Commits Suicide

Image
The suspect was a white man who wore a face covering and a FedEx uniform, law enforcement sources told ABC News, and he used an ordinary car to make a getaway.
At about 5 p.m. Sunday, the gunman knocked at the door to the family's North Brunswick home. Mark Anderl answered the door and was shot first, before his son was also shot.
"He was shot through the heart," Womack said of Daniel Anderl, who was a student at Catholic University in Washington, D.C.
The suspect was later found dead of an apparently self-inflicted gunshot wound near Liberty, New York, multiple law enforcement sources told ABC News. A municipal employee discovered the body in a car.
The deceased suspect was an attorney who had a case before Judge Salas in 2015, sources said.
A FedEx package addressed to Judge Salas was discovered in the car, sources said. The suspect who opened fire at the New Jersey home of US District Judge Esther Salas died by suicide near Liberty, NY, multiple law enforcement sources tol…
