So President Trump argues for "law & order" but things have become more violent and more lawless during his tenure. Seems like he's failed to accomplish much during his first term. No reason for anyone to believe his promises.

Well it's not his fault, nothing is Trump's failt. But somehow he has the tools to fix it even though he didn't bother to do shit yet, except complain and blame.

6:23 is lying. In 2018 and 2019, after immediately increasing enforcement as soon as he took office, violent crime went down.

Overdoses finally dropped for the first time in 40 years.

Democrats hate facts, so they resort to lying even though the FBI and federal court data is so in-your-face damning to their lies.

Definition of DARVO
DARVO refers to a reaction perpetrators of wrong doing, particularly sexual offenders, may display in response to being held accountable for their behavior. DARVO stands for "Deny, Attack, and Reverse Victim and Offender."

6:29 but violent and property crime went down after Trump increased federal prosecutions.

So if nothing is his fault then he can at least take credit for reversing the trend Obama created by reducing federal enforcement of laws.

This data from the federal courts corresponds to the reduction in violent crime in 2018 and 2019.

When Democrats went to war with America, yes the murders in Democrat cities went up. But those are Democrats killing Democrats.

Trump has proven he cares with Operation LeGend, since it has helped reduce the crime rate when local Democrat politicians, like the DAs in Wyandotte and Jackson Counties refused to act.

Bad as I don't like Trump, I can see all this uncivil unrest has been organized to defeat Trump.

The World is in a Pandemic yet race takes center stage in concert with politicians, media, sports, music and Hollywood. Hard to deny this is not all planned to inflict maximum political damage.

And where do you buy your tinfoil hats? Seems like you wouldn't just make them yourself.

Its great that they are now killing murderers. For 17 years they have had no fear of getting the death penalty carried out. Now we are gonna kill them off at an accelerating rate. Including you murders in Kansas City. We will cheer each time one of you losers die for your crime. Ha ha ha for Mr. Loser Nelson!

I will chip in on the meds if we can fast track the back log to make room for all the new arrivals. it has been said that the death penalty is not a deterrent. Maybe not to others, but the executed will never be a repeat offender for sure!

And yet that makes absolutely no sense at all. Weird.

So in 57 years the "leadership" of the black community has gone from MLK to Al Sharpton.
Progress?

I hope the drug caused Nelson to experience pain before death. He sure the fuck didn't give a shit if Pamela felt pain.

The Democrapic big city mayors are letting their cities be torn apart. They have no clue about how to control crime and are too proud to ask for Trump's help, even after he offers it. They're keeping Trump away from their cities while they crumble, residents move out at alarming rates, and the remaining residents face a new wave of crime all because of the stupid Democraps.

Wonder if Biden would have allowed the execution of the pedophile Keith Nelson like Pres. Trump?

^^^ yes he would, because he’s white that’s why. Biden is a racist who didn’t want black kids anywhere near his kids and what was that thing about bussing again? I’m joe obiden and I’m running for the senate!
