Newsom Sending Attorneys, Officers to Oakland to Combat Crime

Newsom Sending Attorneys, Officers to Oakland to Combat Crime

“…between 2021 and 2023 there was a 21 percent increase in violent crime, a 38 percent increase in robberies and a 45 percent increase in vehicle thefts.”

California Gov. Gavin Newsom has shipped state attorneys and California Highway Patrol officers to Oakland due to the rising crime.

We’ve seen Oakland lose restaurants, employees fending off robbers, and businesses tell employees to eat lunch at work.

Oakland is a mess: “According to a recent Oakland Police Department crime report, between 2021 and 2023 there was a 21 percent increase in violent crime, a 38 percent increase in robberies and a 45 percent increase in vehicle thefts.”

“As crime rates across California decrease — including right across the Bay in San Francisco — Oakland is seeing the opposite trend,” said Newsom. “What’s happening in this beautiful city and surrounding area is alarming and unacceptable. I’m sending the California Highway Patrol to assist local efforts to restore a sense of safety that the hardworking people of Oakland and the East Bay demand and deserve.”

The 120 CHP officers will focus on “auto theft, cargo theft, retail crime, violent crime, and high-visibility traffic enforcement.”

I’ll never forget the story about Oakland police telling residents to use air horns to alert neighbors of intruders or crimes.

Newsom hopes more officers lead to more arrests.

Therefore, Oakland will get additional state attorneys to help with prosecutions.

“An arrest isn’t enough. Justice demands that suspects are appropriately prosecuted,” explained Newsom. “Whether it’s ‘bipping’ or carjacking, attempted murder or fentanyl trafficking, individuals must be held accountable for their crimes using the full and appropriate weight of the law.”

“Bipping” is slang for break-in.

The relationship between Alameda County District Attorney’s Office and California law enforcement agencies will allow an “increase prosecutions of violent criminals as well as prosecutions for property crimes, serious drug-related crimes, retail theft and auto burglaries.”

District Attorney Pamela Price is happy: “I welcome the support from the Governor in this fight against organized retail crime and the scourge of Fentanyl in our community.”

I bet Price is happy. The district attorney backed by George Soros has felt the wrath of those in Oakland.

People want to kick Price out of office. Houses are losing value. Businesses are closing. No one feels safe.

And this is going to accomplish… WHAT, exactly?
If the prosecutor won’t hold them, and often won’t even charge them adequately, what will it matter that there are more police walking around unable to do that which actually deters theft (and other crimes)?

Similar to the vile Dhimmi-crats’ despicable and self-serving attempts to blame grocery stores, farmers and consumer goods manufacturers for rampant Bidenflation, these idiots are already beginning to blame businesses for the rampant urban crime and lawlessness that are the direct and obvious results of the Dhimmi-crats’ anti-police, pro-criminal and criminal-coddling policies.

Rep. Ayanna Presley was already unfairly vilifying Walgreens for closing a store in a crime-infested, dangerous, predominantly black Boston neighborhood — blaming the company for fairly reacting to an untenable situation that Presley and the rest of her vile, Dhimmi-crat brethren bear direct responsibility for creating. Naturally, the Dhimmi-crats would prefer to disclaim all personal responsibility for the predictably destructive and deleterious consequences of their idiotic policies, and shift blame to everyone else.

You can bet your sweet bippy that this will help.

Crime rates across California are decreasing? Or are crimes simply being decriminalised and not prosecuted?

“California Gov. Gavin Newsom has shipped state attorneys and California Highway Patrol officers to Oakland due to the rising crime.”

Tomorrow, the Governor plans to ship a platoon of power-washer operators to San Francisco,

“As crime rates across California decrease — including right across the Bay in San Francisco — Oakland is seeing the opposite trend,” said Newsom.

So… the police won’t do anything on thefts of less than $900, and won’t respond to car-break-ins because that’s a matter for your insurance company…so there’s no point in reporting either crime…

I wonder a bit about the Governor’s statistics for SFO for some reason…

AND

Given the same set of problems regarding police response are no doubt true in Oakland, I wonder how bad things REALLY are in Oakland.

    Except that car owners whose car was stolen are being screwed over because in most cases insurers require a police report, which said police refuse to take, probably in part because if there is no report it won’t appear in official statistics.

How do you combat crime when stealing is pretty much legal and there’s no bail anyway?

    Crime? For crime there have to be criminals. These are victims not criminals. Don’t try to confuse me with the facts. Like someone else up there said, it’s all optics. If something good comes of this we’ll know. If nothing comes of it, the democrat/media complex will try to keep us from finding out. Me? I’ll keep my eye on the UHaul index!
