Shoplifting and looting becoming more common

Quote

People living and working in Portland, Oregon, told Fox News Digital they hope the ousting of their progressive district attorney will end what they view as a permissive attitude toward crime.

Current DA, elected during the BLM days, said stealing wasnt a crime. Rioting wasn't a crime. Using drugs wasnt a crime. Shoplifting wasnt a crime.

Well he lost by a landslide thus time. People of Portland seem to be wising up after their neighborhoods turned into homeless camps, street racing tracks, and open air drug markets, along with the stores closing down due to not procescuting thieves. Plus, you know, murders doubled...

New guy campaigned on...

- prosecuting criminals

- Working with police

- Taking all arrests seriously.

I live right by Portland. They look kind of Eastern European to me. A lot of Eastern Europeans in the south east end of Portland. Quite a bit of petty crime going on there. Predators who look for easy money.

A Chicago Democrat thinks not reporting crimes will help the crime rate look better.

 

A Chicago Democrat is facing criticism after saying she will no longer share crime alerts because it creates a negative "perception" of marginalized communities.

Local Alderman Leni Manaa-Hoppenworth announced Wednesday that she would no longer relay crime alerts via her social media or constituent email list because of her belief that the "over-reporting of crime leads to an inaccurate public perception about crime rates."

"Research also shows us that over-reporting of crime negatively impacts our most marginalized and underserved neighbors," she said.

Her comments come after a bloody Memorial Day weekend that left 41 people shot, killing nine, including a 5-year-old girl. Another person was fatally stabbed.

 

During an appearance on "America's Newsroom," Violence Interrupters Executive Director Tio Hardiman said Manaa-Hoppenworth's comments are not necessarily accurate and that Chicago is a "rough place." He suggested that some people may not want crime information to get out to the public at large, but that the public needs to be aware of "skyrocketing" carjackings and armed robberies.

"People need to know to watch their surroundings because you can have somebody robbing people," Hardiman said. "There might be a rash of armed robberies taking place in a certain area, so people need to know. So, I pretty much disagree with that notion not to alert people because it's going on in Chicago."

TBH, I have a great deal of sympathy with the US and also European countries. The UK is the only country in the world to cut ties with its own continent (Europe) to deepen ties with Asia, African and India. And change their legal immigration system so that there is unlimited immigration from these countries rather than Europe. And then have the cheek to complain that they don't like what they have done and canvas support for the very Party that did all this! Crazy.

Studies have shown that if you dont report, or prosecute, crimes, then the crime rates will magically go down.

At least till whomever is in charge becomes the victim of said crimes, or till all major businesses are leaving town.

Are maginalized communities maginalized because of racism, or bias, or whatever, or... Because everyone know crime is more common there. Is the negative perception earned, or unjustified?

To determine if the perception is earned, or unjustified, simply prove it by driving through and looking at the shops. If they have bars, its justified. If there are few, or no bars, on windows, and doors, than its unjustified. 

My little town on the end of the metro area has bars only on the pot shops. Because theyre easy targets for big cash robberies.

Inaccurate, or unfortunate?

I can only speak for myself, but Ive lived in apartments that had just brick walls, with just a floor heater, that was $100 a month, and in my car for a while, in a barracks in the Army, and in a succession of homes I bought and kept taking a step up each time. Ive lived povery, and homelessness for a short while. 

My opinion is, that the poor, and especially the criminal poor, think everyone thinks like them. "Youd rob a store if you could, you just dont need to.". But, the truth is almost everyone is very honest, and law abiding. Its this small fraction of the poor who create most of the trouble around every town.

They think they see entitlement, and so will demand entitlement. Demand cops let them go, or that cops cant stop/search them. They see racism everywhere, and play the victim. Its never their fault. 

This lady isnt helping. Shes enabling these criminals, and thus propagating crime in her district. Shes pandering to the criminals.

Yeah, because when a big portion of the neighborhood's income is from crime, than criminals getting caught makes the neighborhood poorer.

It not rocket science.

Rant over... 😇
