Pelosi blames ‘attitude of lawlessness’ for rising crime rates, smash-and-grabs – The Washington Times
GNN Note – Where did the people learn this “attitude of lawlessness“? Do tell, corrupt-to-the-core, Pelosi. Maybe defund the police in democrat run cities? Maybe democrats supporting marauders and rioters in summer of 2020? Maybe Kamaltoe Harris donating to release said marauders and rioters? Maybe not one person going to jail, being investigated for riots during the summer of 2020 when there were, according to Hannity, more 500 riots mostly in democrat run cities? Maybe not one person being arrested / investigated for CHOP in Seattle – a democrat run city? Maybe not one person being arrested / investigated for any one of the more than 20+ murders in broad daylight during the riots in the summer of 2020? Maybe corrupt-to-the-core Pelosi not saying one word against the marauders and rioters during the summer of 2020? So, yes, please, corrupt-to-the-core Pelosi, tell us where this “attitude of lawlessness” could have possibly come from? It’s a mystery to me. / END
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said there’s a growing “attitude of lawlessness” behind the rising crime rates that have frustrated local officials across American cities.
Mrs. Pelosi told reporters on Wednesday that the smash-and-grab crimes targeting retail stores is a major issue that has to be spoken out against.
“There is an attitude of lawlessness in a country that springs from I don’t know where … but we cannot have that lawlessness,” Mrs. Pelosi said.
“None of it is acceptable,” the California Democrat said. “It has to be stopped.”
The speaker added that the spike in crime extends beyond the high-profile incidents that have generated headlines about her hometown of San Francisco.
San Francisco Mayor London Breed, a Democrat, announced this week a crackdown on crimes related to illegal drugs and gun violence.
“It’s time the reign of criminals who are destroying our city, it is time for it to come to an end,” Ms. Breed said. “And it comes to an end when we take the steps to [be] more aggressive with law enforcement, more aggressive with the changes in our policies and less tolerant of all the bull—-t that has destroyed our city.”
Mrs. Pelosi’s comments represent another break with the far-left wing of her party, including New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who recently expressed some doubts about the reported rise in flash-mob thefts and smash-and-grab attacks.
