The Democratic mayors from two of America’s most violent cities, New York City’s Eric Adams and Chicago’s Lori Lightfoot, met on Friday to exchange ideas for combatting skyrocketing crime and were shredded for even pretending to know how to deal with the violence considering their track records.
Both leftist mayors have found themselves butting heads with their city’s top prosecutors, accusing them of promoting lenient policies that benefit criminals, letting them walk back onto the streets to commit even more crimes.
In New York City, crime is up over 45 percent compared to last year, according to the Daily Mail. Adams vowed to curb the violence but has been stymied by problems at Rikers Island, an uptick in hate crimes, and an overburdened court system. Rampantly progressive policies coming out of the DA’s office are making things much worse not only for police offices but for New Yorkers in general.
Chicago is just as bad with crime spiking 34 percent this year in a city already notorious as a killing field.
