Looks like some of the wokest of woke states are finally realizing that kowtowing to criminals while sneering at conservative taxpayers wasn’t the greatest approach for long-term stability.
Colorado, which has long bragged about being super progressive in its widespread drug legalization coupled with its asinine green energy demands, is apparently experiencing now what California, Oregon, and Washington have long since experienced ever since Dems decided it would be a great idea to kowtow to violent criminals.
After all, they already kowtow to the drug addled masses taking over all the major urban areas on the West Coast, so apparently Dems felt compelled to promote “equity” for more violent criminals as well.
Much to the chagrin of numerous local leaders across Colorado, who are tasked with cleaning up the egregious mess left behind by the Dems.
Mayor Mike Coffman of Aurora admits that the new era of crime with effective impunity is causing great damage to local towns and cities, wherein local retailers are dealing with the dual effects of mega inflation and a mega increase in crime.
Both of which may be attributed to terrible Dem policies.
“The situation is out of control … There’s a rising anger about that … and the feeling is they’re not just stealing from the store, they’re stealing from everybody,” Coffman remarked.
Dem policies in a nutshell.
Indeed, while rising crime is a problem across the nation, organized crime has become especially pronounced in Dem-driven locales.
While some of this organized crime undoubtedly hails from the cartel members that Dems gleefully welcome from across the border, other organized crime has simply arisen from the zero-bail and felony-to-misdemeanor laws passed by Dems.
Basically, even if criminals commit the same “misdemeanor,” which was previously a felony, they effectively have a photoshoot arrest and are freed on zero bail hours later.
Apparently, such measures help “equity.”
If “equity” entails everyone but the elites living in a crime-ridden cesspool, that is.
Total insanity, in other words.
After all, “smash and grab” robberies, in which huge teams of thieves unafraid of being stopped charge retailers and steal as much as possible.
Oftentimes, they have zero qualms about hurting anyone and everyone, as long as they get their “stuff.”
That’s right: Several of these criminals are actually referring to the things they steal as “their stuff,” illustrating the degree to which these “reparations” expectations have ballooned completely out of hand.
In Brighton, Colorado, two criminals openly threatened other individuals in King Soopers grocery store if they dared to intervene.
Brandishing a screwdriver, one criminal demanded that everyone back off from “his stuff.”
“You’ll have to shoot me or give me my stuff. I’ll stab you if you don’t give me my stuff,” he shrieked.
The message of “free stuff” has clearly found a permanent audience, that’s for sure.
Apparently, another city, Aurora has passed a city ordinance wherein someone is placed in jail for three days if they steal more than $300 in merchandise.
Closer, but nowhere near a cigar for resolving the ongoing issue of rampant crime across Dem-led cities.
After all, criminals will probably start taking stealing “shifts,” wherein some rest three days in jail, receiving “free,” taxpayer-funded meals, before being released to steal again while their buddies “rest” for another three days.
Something suggests rather meek penalties, organized criminals can easily work around, are not the best solution for individuals unafraid to use violence to get “their stuff.”
