SF Mayor: We're Going to Crack Down on the Crime Spike That I Created

She cut the police budget in July. She got on board with the ‘defund the police’ nonsense—and now San Francisco is paying the price. The city is experiencing a crime spike and now the mayor has declared that she will be cracking down on the crime wave she created. You cannot make this up (via CBS SF BayArea):


Mayor London Breed launched an emergency police intervention in San Francisco’s crime-ridden Tenderloin neighborhood Tuesday, targeting a pipeline of illegal drugs that has been fueling a surge in gun violence and deadly fentanyl overdoses.

Breed’s anger and frustration over the crime surge in the city were on full display at her noon news conference.

“It’s time the reign of criminals who are destroying our city, it is time for it to come to an end,” she said. “And it comes to an end when we take the steps to more aggressive with law enforcement. More aggressive with the changes in our policies and less tolerate of all the bullshit that has destroyed our city.”


The Tenderloin crackdown was just one of four crime fighting initiatives Breed announced at a news conference that afternoon.

The other three were:

Securing emergency police funding for needed resources

Amending our surveillance ordinance so law enforcement can interrupt crime in real time

Disrupting the illegal street sales of stolen goods.


This isn’t hard, guys. You don’t need to be a cop or have a degree in criminology to see that if you’re soft on crime, the menaces to society will only get more aggressive. You get rid of bail—crime will spike. You cut the police budget. Crime will spike. It’s all been done and seen before. This isn’t new. Progressive action items are bad policy, and that’s always been the case. Lesson learned.
