Many have progressive district attorneys who were backed by George Soros.
Crime in multiple Democrat-run cities is completely out of control and it’s not just smash-and-grab robberies by organized flash mobs.
Murder is up in many cities in record-breaking numbers. One other thing many of these cities have in common is progressive district attorneys who were elected with backing from George Soros.
The left-wing riots in the spring of 2020 began the lawlessness. The moment elected officials started repeating the message of ‘defund the police’ all bets were off and things have only gotten worse.

‘It’s just crazy’: 12 major cities hit all-time homicide records
At least 12 major U.S. cities have broken annual homicide records in 2021 — and there’s still three weeks to go in the year.
Of the dozen cities that have already surpassed the grim milestones for killings, five topped records that were set or tied just last year.
“It’s terrible to every morning get up and have to go look at the numbers and then look at the news and see the stories. It’s just crazy. It’s just crazy and this needs to stop,” Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney said after his city surpassed its annual homicide record of 500, which stood since 1990.
Philadelphia, a city of roughly 1.5 million people, has had more homicides this year (521 as of Dec. 6) than the nation’s two largest cities, New York (443 as of Dec. 5) and Los Angeles (352 as of Nov. 27). That’s an increase of 13% from 2020, a year that nearly broke the 1990 record.
Chicago, the nation’s third-largest city, leads the nation with 739 homicides as of the end of November, up 3% from 2020, according to Chicago Police Department crime data. Chicago’s deadliest year remains 1970 when there were 974 homicides.
Philadelphia’s homicide record was broken in the same week that Columbus, Indianapolis and Louisville eclipsed records for slayings.
Progressive policies have led us here, no matter how Democrats or anyone in the media tries to spin it.
Can you guess what all these cities have in common?

12 major cities have all hit new records for homicides: Philadelphia, Portland, Indianapolis, St. Paul, Tucson, Albuquerque, Austin, Louisville, Columbus, Toledo, Rochester, and Baton Rouge.
All 12 have Democrat mayors.
