Imagine living in a city where carjackings are so rampant that your local police department needs to post a “Carjacking Dashboard” on their website.
That’s what’s happening up here in D.C., a city where violent crime is up 39% year to date. You may have seen news about a congressman from Texas who was carjacked in D.C. last night. Fortunately, he was uninjured. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said for many of the other 752 carjacking victims this year alone.
When local leadership is soft-on-crime, you get policies that weaken law enforcement and embolden criminals. And from D.C. to San Francisco, we’re seeing this proven over and over again across the nation.
