Crime in the United States is completely out of control, especially in big cities which are almost exclusively run by Democrats.
Nancy Pelosi was asked about the crime wave this week and she played dumb.
She actually said that she has no idea what’s causing the problem. Really Nancy? You don’t know?
The New York Post reported:
Pelosi slams ‘outrageous’ crime surge, won’t admit to liberal cause
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi blasted an “attitude of lawlessness” across the country Wednesday, decrying a recent surge in smash-and-grab crimes – particularly in her hometown of San Francisco – but refusing to admit it stems from police funding cuts and bail reform measures pushed by left-wing lawmakers.
“It’s absolutely outrageous,” Pelosi (D-Calif.) said when asked about the crime spike. “Obviously, it cannot continue. But the fact [is] that there is an attitude of lawlessness in our country that springs from I don’t know where … and we cannot have that lawlessness become the norm.”
“It must be stopped, and it’s not just San Francisco,” Pelosi emphasized. “It’s in our entire country.”
The brazen group robberies have made national headlines for weeks. Last month, for example, around 80 people raided a San Francisco-area Nordstrom department store and drove off in two dozen cars with up to $200,000 in goods, police said.

Maybe it has something to do with all the left wing, George Soros backed district attorneys who are refusing to prosecute criminals.
Maybe it has something to do with the left’s efforts to defund the police.
If Pelosi really wants to know what’s causing all this crime, she should look at her own party.
Therein lies the problem.
