Jen Psaki didn’t think carefully before these four words escaped her mouth.
Now she’ll have to pay for them.
Jen Psaki got a serious message from the police that absolutely terrifies her.
The Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office announced a list of crimes that they would no longer prosecute in December 2020.
Now the ten million people in the populous county in America know that they can get away with a range of misdemeanor crimes, from resisting arrest, to drug possession, to making criminal threats or trespassing.
Los Angeles is hardly alone. Democratic prosecutors all over the country aren’t properly enforcing the law.
This is causing serious problems; almost every major American city has seen a rise in crime, yet White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki mocked talking about “soft-on-crime consequences.”
“And then on Fox is Jeanine Pirro talking about ‘soft-on-crime consequences.’ I mean, what does that even mean, right?” Psaki said during an appearance on the far-left podcast Pod Save America. “So there’s an alternate universe on some coverage. What’s scary about it is a lot of people watch that.”
Patrick Yoes, National President of the Fraternal Order of Police, blasted Psaki for “mocking and belittling Americans’ concerns about the nation’s skyrocketing crime rates and increased violence, which includes 28 law enforcement officers shot in the line of duty in January,” the organization said in a statement.
“I think it’s wrong—very wrong—for Ms. Psaki to suggest that violent crime in our country is of no concern or to just laugh it off,” Yoes said. “She may feel safe in the White House, one of the most protected buildings in the United States, but not everyone feels safe in their workplace. The world we find ourselves in is dangerous and is becoming increasingly more so. Tens of thousands of people have been the victims of crime this month alone and some of them never made it back home.
“There are many reasons for this escalating violence in many of our communities, and one of them is agenda-driven prosecutors who have gone rogue,” he continued. “Many of them are refusing to bring charges against so-called ‘low-level’ or ‘nonviolent’ offenders. Under their leadership, which has been abhorrent in many cases, many violent offenders don’t stay in jail—they’re back on the streets and free to commit more crimes. That is the universe in which I, and millions of Americans, live in.”
The only excuse Psaki could come up with on Monday, when asked about the matter during a press briefing, was that Fox News had “suggested this administration is soft on crime with no basis.”
However the Biden administration isn’t pressuring far-leftist prosecutors to uphold the law; instead, Biden’s main plans for fighting crime involve taking guns away from law-abiding citizens instead of holding criminals accountable.
