Saw this and am awaiting the appropriate Democrat response.
WASHINGTON (Reuters) – More murders and robberies in 2006 sent U.S. violent crimes higher for the second straight year, the FBI said on Monday, with the increase blamed on gangs, youth violence, gun crimes and fewer police on beats.
I’m sure any moment now that Reid and Pelosi will announce plans to include a timetable for our police to pull out of the cities. Murtha will add an amendment that we try to police the cities from a forward base..maybe in Vancouver.
The FBI reported that the number of violent crimes nationwide went up by 1.3 percent last year, following a 2.3 percent increase in 2005. That had been the first rise in four years and the biggest percentage gain in 15 years.
The report showed that murders in big cities jumped last year by 6.7 percent. Robberies, an important indicator of crime trends, increased 6 percent nationwide.
Harry Reid: “We have lost the battle for control of our cities and in a desire to not put any more police lives at risk we are declaring the war on crime lost and are setting timetables for withdrawal.” Yep that announcement will come any day now that the democrats have taken over control of the universal white flag from the french.
