Earlier this month the Oakland NAACP called for a “state of emergency” over soaring crime in their city. From my post:
“Oakland NAACP leaders have called for a state of emergency over soaring crime in the area, as they blame the defund the police movement and the George Soros- backed district attorney for the rising violence.

The NAACP letter comes as North Oakland has seen a a 22 percent increase in robberies and 18 percent increase in violent crime this year.

But democrats never learn, as Oakland hasn’t had a republican mayor since the 1960s.

Outrage in Oakland as wild video shows woman being violently dragged on the ground during armed robbery
From The Daily Mail:
“Shocking video has emerged of a woman being pistol-whipped and dragged across gravel by two thugs in Democrat-led Oakland as the city grapples with a surging crime wave.
The attack happened last week Wednesdayat 6.15 pm on International Boulevard, and left the unidentified woman with severe injuries, police investigating in the East Bay city said.
Footage shows the woman being confronted by two men who try to grab several items from her, including her purse, before she’s violently struck with the weapon.
She is then seen falling to the ground before being pulled across the floor by her purse as both men rifle through her pockets. The attackers are both on the run and the woman’s condition as of Tuesday is unknown.”

Under Biden’s America, democrat-run cities are absolutely failing their citizens. Just look at what’s occurring in Los Angeles, Portland, Chiraq, Philadelphia, Seattle, Baltimore, New York, etc. etc. It may be too little, too late for democrats to realize the obvious point:
