Where are the stories about the rise in violent crime in cities that have defunded police?
These storied don't fit the narrative of the left and are seriously deadly in major cities. With the media reluctant to publish any story that proves Trump correct, we are ignoring a big problem that needs fixing.

You really have to dig to find them....that's a story in itself! New York, trendwise, may beat Chicago for shootings and it's just getting started. But the democrats "care" you see.

Here's the thing. ALL this crap is happening in DEMOCRAT cities as DEMOCRAT city government tries to placate the DEMOCRAT mob of rioters. NONE of this is happening in Republican cities and, friend, these aren't 'Trumptards' burning down the inner city and killing cops, MORE black people and other DEMOCRAT civilians.
But, sure. Let's vote for a DEMOCRAT for President. They're doing such a great job in the cities! Let's take this national!So OF COURSE they're not going to cover it. Or, they're going to redirect or rationalize it.

Well there are stories about a surge in murders (other violent crime is down) in many cities. It was one of the top stories on the evening news last night.
But there aren't stories that specifically draw the link between that and defunding the police because there isn't one (yet). For one thing, most cities in the US have seen a spike in violence and few cities have voted to cut police budgets. Secondly, while some cities, most notably New York, have voted in police budget cuts, those have not taken effect yet and so cannot have contributed, one way or another, to the crime rates we're now experiencing.
