Crime Climbing in Austin Texas Thanks to Wacko Leftist Policies

Published

on

According to a report from the Wall Street Journal., Austin, Texas has become the national leader in year-to-year percent increases of homicides during the Wuhan virus pandemic.

The report highlights how the U.S. is experiencing a noticeable increase in homicides in major cities throughout the Wuhan virus pandemic. The lockdowns implemented in response to this pandemic have largely contributed to this instability. However, the lackadaisical response by law enforcement, and more importantly, the irresponsibility of law enforcement across the country have largely contributed to this environment of lawlessness.

Crime statistics compiled for America’s 50 largest cities revealed that reported homicides rose by 24 percent in 2020 — at 3,612. The analysis highlights how incidents of gun violence and shootings are climbing upwards, while other categories of violent crimes such as robbery fell.

Per Austin Police Department Chief Brian Manley’s report for the month of June, the city experienced a 64.29 percent increase in homicides when compared to the same timeframe in 2019. By the end of June 2019, there were 14 murders recorded. For June 2020, there were 23 murders by the month’s end.

One of Austin’s high-profile homicides involved the case of Garrett Foster, a participant at a Black Lives Matter march who was shot to death while wielding a rifle as he approached a car that was being encircled by an unruly mob. Chief Manley mentioned this case along with the reports of increasing crime on July 26.

APD Lt. Eve Stephens shared the Wall Street Journal’s post and said that Austin “leads the country in percentage change for homicides compared to the previous year.”

The Wall Street Journal provided an overview of the crime situation taking place across the nation:

According to the Wall Street Journal, cities with ongoing crime problems saw an increase, including Philadelphia, Detroit and Memphis, Tennessee. Chicago, which was reportedly the worst-hit, marked more than one of every eight homicides. Less-violent places have been impacted as well, including Omaha, Nebraska, and Phoenix. In total, 36 of the 50 cities studied saw homicides rise at double-digit rates.

As far as July was concerned, APD put out media releases for 28 homicides. In 2019, Austin had 23 homicides take place by the end of July, which marks a 20 percent increase for 2020.

Despite its leftist tendencies, Austin has been traditionally an attractive city for people to move to. This is largely due to its pro-business environment and overall safety.

However, local officials want to throw that away by embracing radical leftist causes and make the city unlivable for everyday people. Austin city leaders better get their act together lest they want people to flock out of Austin and head to cities that actually care about maintaining public order.

NO MURDER CHARGES: Fired Detective Brett Hankinson Receives Indictment for Wanton Endangerment, No Officers are Charged for the Death of Breonna Taylor

Published

on

On September 23, 2020, Jefferson County Judge Annie O’Connell announced that fired detective Brett Hankinson will be indicted on three counts of wanton endangerment for his actions on the night of Breonna Taylor’s death.

Hankison had previously admitted to shooting blindly. Some of those shots were fired into neighboring apartments not into Breonna Taylor’s where her boyfriend had opened fire onto police.

Myles Cosgrove and Jonathan Mattingly, the other two officers involved in a serving a search warrant on the night that Taylor was killed, did not receive any charges.

The city of Louisville was placed under a state of emergency on September 22, when city officials shutdown a significant portion of the city perimeter to traffic. The majority of administrative building and other businesses were boarded up prior to the decision. Louisville has been rocked by riots related to Taylor’s death in March. These riots have been occurring for over 100 days and have resulted in a number of deaths and heated confrontations with law enforcement.

Starting on the night of September 23, there will be a 72-hour curfew in Louisville. The curfew will not apply to people partaking in essential travel, which includes work-related purposes or medical attention. Kentucky National Guard members will be deployed to the city for the purpose of maintaining public order.

Given the indictment doesn’t match the BLM demands of murder charges for all officers involved, such precautionary measures are necessary to quell potential unrest coming from the Left. Since May, radical leftists have taken advantage of controversial police actions to tear up property and cause mayhem across the country. An incident like Taylor’s death is most assuredly being politicized by the Left and will likely fuel further disturbances across the nation.

Conservatives and nationalists should make it a point to promote healthy debate, while establishing a baseline of public security, to ensure that the country does not spiral further out of control in such times of instability.
