Bryan Fischer here with today’s Life & Liberty Minute. Regressive police reforms are making big cities less safe, not more. Fewer police mean more crime and more murders. More police mean less crime and fewer murders. St. Louis is only the latest example. St. Louis already has the highest murder rate in the country, and its new mayor is about to goose that figure by getting rid of 100 officers and reducing the police budget by $4 million. In the 1990s, New York was a cesspool of crime. Mayor Rudy Giuliani pacified the Big Apple by adding more cops to the beat and implementing a proactive stop and frisk policy in the most crime-ridden parts of town. Times Square was cleared of prostitution and pornography and the city became an attractive tourist destination again. If you thought the murder rate in St. Louis was bad now, just wait til this time next year.
