The homicide rate in 2021 is up 800% in Portland, 56% in Minneapolis, 40% in Philadelphia, 35% in Washington, DC and more.
The sobering data comes as members of the so-called ‘Squad’ continue their calls to Defund the Police, with Rep. Ocasio-Cortez calling the national conversation about safety “hysteria.”

“We are seeing these headlines about percentage increases” she began. “Now, I want to say that any amount of harm is unacceptable and too much. But I also want to make sure that this hysteria, you know, that doesn’t drive a hysteria and that we look at these numbers in context so that we can make responsible decisions about what to allocate in that context.”
ANOTHER NEW DEAL? AOC Introduces Bundle of Progressive Proposals Called ‘A Just Society’
Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez will soon introduce a new package of legislation titled a “Just Society” in the coming weeks; expanding her already massive ‘Green New Deal’ program to combat climate change.
“Well I think that one of the things we can get done is build popular support in acknowledging how bad the problem already is. In doing so, we can actually begin to fundamentally address those problems,” said AOC during a recent interview.
“So, it’s not an issue of getting more people into federal programs. But if we can acknowledge how many Americans are actually in poverty, I think we can start to address some of the more systemic issues in our economy,” she added.
Rep. @AOC has poured her support into progressive proposals like the Green New Deal.

Embattled Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez doubled-down on her massive federal program to combat climate change this week; hailing ‘Generation Green New Deal’ while saying people have brought the environment “to the brink” of collapse.
“Anything less than a solution on the scale of the crisis is a form of climate denial. It’s time for #GenerationGND,” posted AOC on social media.
“We have brought ourselves to the brink of an unsustainable planet in one generation. And we only have one generation to bring it back… Right now, our entire economy is unsustainable. The inequality in our economy is unsustainable,” narrates Ocasio-Cortez in the video.

A top lawyer in the United Kingdom took his country’s crusade to fight climate change to the next level this week; saying the consumption of meat products could be “banned” like tobacco and other controlled substances.
“Eating meat could be banned like smoking, one of Britain’s foremost barristers has predicted, as he called for the offence of ‘ecocide’ to be introduced to prosecute those who damage the nature on a massive scale,” reports the Telegraph. “Michael Mansfield QC warned that the farming of livestock for meat was destroying the planet and called for legislation to criminalise those who cause global warming and the wilful destruction of wildlife . In a message delivered at the launch of the Vegan Now campaign, which encourages people to stop eating meat and dairy, Mansfield said he had a ‘single message’ to make ecocide a crime.”
“I think when we look at the damage eating meat is doing to the planet it is not preposterous,” he told the crowd.
The official’s comments echo similar claims by European scientists earlier this year; saying humans may have to resort to cannibalism to combat climate change.
AOC DIGS IN: Ocasio-Cortez Says NYPD Budget ‘TOO HIGH’ as Crime, Shootings Surge
Controversial Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez doubled-down on her demands to “defund the police” this week; bizarrely claiming the NYPD budget is “too high” as crime surges across the five boroughs.
“I believe the path toward justice is a long arc. Safety is not just an officer with a badge and a gun,” the congresswoman said.
“Our [police budget] is too high,” she said, citing a $6 billion figure for the NYPD.
“It’s about a budget shift,” Ocasio-Cortez added; adding the funds should be used on resources like housing, education, and health care.
“It’s my job to listen. We need to invest in those other types of safety,” Ocasio-Cortez said.
