The Democrats are in charge of most large cities. With that comes responsibility for failing to control the riots, the surrender of police precincts, the refusal to restore order in lawless protest zones. Democrats have also defunded the police, instituted cashless bail, and refused to enforce basic laws. Crime. looting, and gang warfare have exploded in Democrat-run cities. I'm not giving all governors a pass, but the biggest share of the blame for urban violence and destruction goes to the Democrat Mayors and their policy of hostility to law enforcement and appeasement to Leftist mobs.
