Dem Congresswoman Who Supported “Defund The Police” Carjacked in Philadelphia

Defund the Police Dem

FoxNews.com reports that

Congresswoman Mary Gay Scanlon (D-Penn.) was carjacked at gunpoint in Philadelphia on Wednesday as crime continues to surge in major cities across the country.

“Wednesday afternoon, at around 2:45 p.m., Congresswoman Scanlon was carjacked at gunpoint in FDR Park following a meeting at that location,” Scanlon’s office said in a statement. The Congresswoman was physically unharmed. She thanks the Philadelphia Police Department for their swift response, and appreciates the efforts of both the Sergeant at Arms in D.C. and her local police department for coordinating with Philly PD to ensure her continued safety.”

Scanlon’s phone and purse were stolen by the attacker, according to WPVI-TV.

Police say Scanlon was approached by two black males, aged approximately 20-30, as she walked to her vehicle before they demanded she hand them the keys. Scanlon handed over the keys to her blue 2017 Acura MDX and one of the suspects drove away in it while the other drove away in a dark-colored SUV.

Scanlon represents Pennsylvania’s 5th Congressional District, which includes part of South Philadelphia.

In 2021 so far, the Philadelphia Police Department has reported 521 homicides, which is a 13% increase compared to 2020 and the city’s highest number of killings since at least 2007. Incidents involving a shooting have also increased by 4.4%, and the number of people who are victims of a shooting has risen by almost 3% over the past year.

The City of Philadelphia is seeing at least an 80% increase in carjackings in 2021, compared to the total number in 2020, police told FOX 29 earlier this month.

Scanlon was not the first prominent Democratic official to be carjacked in a crime-ridden city in the last 24 hours. Last night, Illinois’ Democratic state Senate majority leader Sen. Kimberly Lightford and her husband were carjacked in Chicago, where crime has been surging.

“First and foremost, I am thankful that my husband and I are alive and physically unharmed,” Lightford said in a statement. “I am trying to process the trauma of what happened. I want to thank everyone who has offered their love and support. I want to especially thank Mayor Katrina Thompson and the Broadview Police Department for their quick and thorough response.”

Both Scanlon and Lightford have been staunch supporters of police reforms in the aftermath of the death of George Floyd in the summer of 2020.

“We have seen too many lives taken and communities devastated by police brutality and racial profiling,” Scanlon tweeted shortly after Floyd’s death. “Action is long overdue. @HouseDemocrats are fighting for REAL reform in our country’s police departments. #JusticeInPolicing.”

Rep. Scanlon is one of 125 co-sponsors of the Mental Health Justice Act, which aimed to place some police officers as first responders with mental health specialists. All of the bill’s sponsors are Democrats. The bill’s text says its purpose is “To authorize the Secretary of Health and Human Services to award grants to States and political subdivisions of States to hire, employ, train, and dispatch mental health professionals to respond in lieu of law enforcement officers in emergencies involving one or more persons with a mental illness or an intellectual or developmental disability, and for other purposes.”

At the time the Mental Health Justice Act was introduced in February 2021, with Scanlon on board as one of its original co-sponsors, The Hill reported, “Congress wants to make it easier for state and local governments to defund the police by instead funding mental health services and empowering them to respond to emergency calls instead of armed officers.”

Actions have consequences.

All of the cities and states which have experienced perceived “trouble” with police departments happen to be Blue States with Democrats in charge of State and Municipal Governments.

Instead of relying on traditional police departments and the American System of Law and Order, Democrats like those in the Minneapolis City Council wanted to have the power to circumvent the American System of Justice because of their issues in the past with it.

The death of ex-convict George Floyd gave them the excuse to attempt to defund police departments.

And now, with a Democrat in office, those who oppose Law and Order are all taking the side of the criminals.

Even the Democrat sitting behind the Oval Office…when he is not taking a nap.

Just like a criminal does not represent an entire race, neither do bad policemen represent an entire nation’s Law Enforcement Officers.

They are heroes.

And, I’ll bet that those Democrat Politicians who became victims of crime wish that a policeman or policewoman had been around when they needed one.

Talk about a Reality Check….

So, please allow me to end today’s post with the text of a classic narration by the late, great Paul Harvey  titled “What is a Policeman?”

“A policeman is a composite of what all men are, I guess, a mingling of saint and sinner, dust and deity. What that really means is that they are exceptional, they are unusual. They are not commonplace. Buried under the froth is the fact, the fact is that less than one half of one percent of policeman misfit that uniform, and that is a better average than you’d find among clergymen.“What is a policeman?

“He of all men is at once the most needed, and the most wanted, a strangely nameless creature who is sir to his face and pig or worse behind his back. He must be such a diplomat that he can settle differences between individuals so that each will think he won, but, if a policeman is neat, he’s conceited, if he’s careless he’s a bum, if he’s pleasant, he’s a flirt, if he’s not, he’s a grouch.

“He must make instant decisions that would require months for a lawyer but if he hurries he’s careless, if he’s deliberate, he’s lazy. He must be first to an accident, infallible with diagnoses. He must be able to start breathing, stop bleeding, tie splints and above all, be sure the victim goes home without a limp.

“The police officer must know every gun, draw on the run and hit where it doesn’t hurt.

“He must be able to whip two men twice his size and half his age without damaging his uniform, and without being brutal. If you hit him he’s a coward, if he hits you, he’s a bully. The policeman from a single human hair must be able to describe the crime, the weapon the criminal, and tell you where the criminal is hiding but, if he catches the criminal he’s lucky, if he doesn’t he’s a dunce.

“He runs files and writes reports until his eyes ache to build a case against some felon who will get dealt out by some shameless shamus. The policeman must be a minister, a social worker, a diplomat, a tough guy, and a gentle man. And of course, he’ll have to be a genius, because he’ll have to feed a family on a policeman’s salary.”

Until He Comes,

Pelosi: “There is an Attitude of Lawlessness in Our Country Which Springs From I Don’t Know Where”…Americans Know

Pelosi Crime

FoxNews.com reports that

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi Wednesday decried recent crime waves, including organized retail theft, in San Francisco and elsewhere in the U.S. as “outrageous” and decried “an attitude of lawlessness” she said is behind it.

Pelosi, D-Calif., made the comments when asked about recent comments from San Francisco Mayor London Breed, who is pushing a renewed effort to “change course on how we public safety” and crack down on crime.

“It’s absolutely outrageous. Obviously it cannot continue,” Pelosi said. “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.”

“These people coordinate with each other and they plan traffic patterns and the rest so they can reach their goal and depart very quickly,” Pelosi added of the brazen retail thefts that are grabbing nationwide headlines. “”This isn’t like somebody stealing something to go home because they don’t have money to buy. This is about stealing for profit.”

The House speaker said an upcoming bill in the chamber could include multiple provisions that address the source of income for those “stealing for profit,” which is often online.

“Within that bill, the Energy and Commerce Committee has something called INFORM… legislation that would require those who are selling online especially is to establish their legitimacy as to where these products came from. Because what people do is they steal things and they sell them online,” Pelosi said.

“The Judiciary Committee has a bill, Save Shopping, which addresses the same problem in of a different way in terms of holding platforms accountable and those selling things accountable for the prominence of those goods,” she added. “Out of the question that people should be able to think that they can just steal things, profit from them and not have accountability.”

Pelosi also in her press conference touted the passage of a bill in the House to combat Islamophobia and a separate one condemning Chinese oppression of Uyghur Muslims.

“That’s genocide,” Pelosi said of how the Chinese Communist Party is treating that ethnic minority.

The speaker also said she hopes the Senate will pass Democrats massive reconciliation spending bill soon. She specifically touted the child care provisions in the bill and child tax credit checks – the last of which is being sent out Wednesday unless Congress passes legislation to renew it.

But she did not address criticism of the child care provisions in the bill that many are warning could nearly double the annual price of child care for many middle class families by imposing costly new regulations and salary requirements on child care facilities.

San Fran Nan does not have a clue.

Or, at least, the old witch is pretending that she doesn’t.

Actions have consequences.

The disrespect shown by the Democrats since the days of the Obama Administration, coupled with the disintegration of the Black Family Unit as a result of LBJ’s Great Society”, has led us to this moment in history.

The Democrats’ push to “Defund the Police” in favor of “community policing”, was a bone-headed idea which did not help things at all,.

Rather, it was like lighting a match and throwing it into your car’s gas tank while filling up at your local gas station.

It is not just San Francisco which has an out-of-control crime problem, it is every Democrat-run municipality in America, especially those who have District Attorneys who were funded by the Puppet Master himself, George Soros.

And now, with all of this happening, the Democrats want to do away with bail??!!

I was going to ask if they are out of their minds, but that is very apparent to the majority of Americans.

The Democrats had better figure out that Americans will not put up with a lawless society for very long and that futile gestures, like my Hometown of Memphis honoring a local rapper named “Lil Dolph” who was recently assassinated in front of a bakery, by renaming a part of a major street after him, will not deter crime.

The Democrat Elite, like Nancy Pelosi, who live in mansions surrounded by gated walls, actually could care less about what happens to us “Deplorables”.

That’s another reason that we must vote them out of office in the Midterm Elections of 2022.

Our families’ safety depends upon it.
