New York City has been in the news lately due to its uptick in crime over the past year.
According to a report from the New York Police Department, shooting incidents have increased by 87 percent, while murders have risen by 35 percent
Such developments are not happening by coincidence. They’re the result of public policies that have promoted soft-on-crime approaches to criminal justice. Namely, the ending of cash bail. States like New York have led the way by abolishing cash bail for most misdemeanors and various non-violent “crimes”earlier this year. From the jump, the results have been quite a mess as seasoned criminals are free to get back on the streets and continue to wreak havoc on the general public.
Despite the growing unpopularity of these reforms, Democrat politicians insist on being soft on crime and making pro-criminal policies a national standard. Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden embodies this ethos.
Conservative journalist Ryan Girdusky tweeted, “The reason New York is seeing a huge rise in crime is because they chose to end cash bail. On Joe Biden’s website, he plans on making that a national policy. You can’t be tough-on-crime when you want a revolving door of criminality.”

Such perversions of criminal justice reform are turning cities like New York into inhospitable cesspools. Coupled with draconian gun control laws that prevent people from adequately defending themselves, many of America’s landmark cities are set to descend into Latin American status — areas marked by massive wealth disparities and a total breakdown of public order.
The Right needs to stick to its guns and promote a coherent law and order program that protects the innocent while severely punishing those violate life and property.
NO MURDER CHARGES: Fired Detective Brett Hankinson Receives Indictment for Wanton Endangerment, No Officers are Charged for the Death of Breonna Taylor
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.
