Austin Voted to Defund the Police, its Murder Rate Rose 67%

Front Page Mag: The Austin City Council voted unanimously to defund the police.

“We don’t need somebody who’s a sworn officer and a gun in order to be able to accomplish what the community needs done,” Mayor Steve Adler falsely claimed.

Austin’s proposed budget targeted millions in cuts. These included 100 vacant police positions, delaying the next cadet class, delaying the replacement of duty weapons, and there were proposals by some Democrats council members to shut down the police academy, cut the bomb squad budget, and even demolish the city’s downtown police headquarters.

The proposed budget also includes a 3.5% tax increase.

Politicians limited the ability of police officers to use force against criminals and barred them from using pepper spray and tear gas against the violent mobs of Black Lives Matter rioters.

Now Austin is number one with a bullet after its homicide rate increase passed every major city.

Overtaking more violent cities like Chicago, left behind at number two, Philly at number six, and New York at number eight, Austin had the highest percentage homicide rate increase. Like the ‘Miracle on Ice’ in the 1980 Winter Olympics, Austin is the underdog that came from behind to blow everyone away with its ability to rack up bodies even faster than vegan soy hot dogs. more here

  1. Let’s enact millions of dollars in cuts and raise taxes. That’s what you low life citizens want, isn’t it?

  2. And don’t bother calling when you have a life or death issue. You voted against protection.
    You’re on your own now.
    Have a nice day.

  3. No fair. Austin is just copying Seattle. Hey, Austin, you can’t top Seattle. Get your own brand of STUPID!

  4. These Democrat cities are committing suicide, and I say you know what, if you make your bed, well then proceed to lay in it. Frickin loser’s! 😁

  5. I feel sorry for all the people that disagree with these policies, but are negatively affected by them. That being said, let them defund the police and try and live with the consequences. It may be the only way some people learn.

  6. Whatever.

    Last night I watched a little bit of Austin City Limits Music on PBS.

    Holy Shitty Shit Shit Face.

    I’m still researching this crap. So far it looks like little impact due to previous laws the citizens never got a chance to vote on. Two years ago they passed a law, amongst themselves, that any 80 Percenters required a state issued serial number. Unconstitutional as hell. There’s so much in this state that’s ripe for a law suit. However Wayne LaPiere spent that money on his family vacation

  8. Seattle votes to defund on Monday unless something drastic happens between now and then.

    My liberal hairstylist on the isle of West Seattle (since the bridge is closed indefinitely) will lose her precinct if that happens. Two shootings on Alki Beach last weekend (uncommon they say!). No cops and no access-sounds like citizen patrols may eventually be needed to keep the peace.

    It’s insanity. Yet, she’s still voting for Biden. 🤦🏼‍♀️ Why? Doesn’t like how Trump talks. 🤦🏼‍♀️🤦🏼‍♀️

  10. All these failing democrat cities have one thing in common: Their democrat leaders pander to parasites. To attract more democrat voters they suck up to illegals, drug addicts, homeless bums, gays-lesbians, Muslims, dumb-lazy-unmotivated government dependent blacks, alcoholics, the mentally ill, convicted prisoners, illiterate foreigners, lazy drop outs, and government workers.

  11. Anarchy
    Distrust
    Hate

    In a word: Terror.

    If you wait long enough, the peeps will be crying in the streets for “Law and Order” which will be provided as Black and Brown Shirts.

    “Hearts full of passion

    What’s surprising is to see it successfully executed in a “civilized” country.

  12. Let the rednecks or citizen militia drive by and dump the bodies in front of the mayor/council members’ house (should be enough to go around). They can give the deceased the proper burial if so inclined.

  13. This serves the purposes the global PTB intend for America, that is why it is being done and it is being done successfully.

  14. Just because the people we hired to do a job are derelict in their duties doesn’t mean We The People are excluded from doing the job ourselves.
    Says so right here in the Constitution.
    These fuckwads hired Art Acevedo, for cryin’ out loud – what do you expect?

  15. 200% increase in justified homicide along with guns and ammo flying off the shelves. The criminals in Texas aren’t going to fare as well as they might in Blue states.
