House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy denounced Democrats after thousands of police officers resigned from their departments amid a soaring crime wave.

The New York Times reported:

“New York City saw 2,600 officers retire in 2020 compared with 1,509 the year before."

“Resignations in Seattle increased to 123 from 34 and retirements to 96 from 43. Minneapolis, which had 912 uniformed officers in May 2019, is now down to 699. At the same time, many cities are contending with a rise in shootings and homicides.”

The news comes after months of demonization by Democrats who pushed for “no more policing,” as homicide rates increased 30% last year and have increased 24 percent in 2021.

Law enforcement agencies that had 250-499 officers experienced a 29% decrease in the hiring rate for the 2020-2021 period, compared to the previous year.

RESIGNATIONS: There was an 18% increase in the resignation rate for the 2020-2021 period, compared to the previous year.

“Over the past year, Democrats’ sustained movement to defund, dismantle, and demonize our cops is taking a toll on our communities,” McCarthy said.

“It has manifested in the crime crisis our nation faces today, yet President Biden remains soft on crime and silent on Democrats’ radical policies.”

“Supporting the police and striving for safe communities should not be partisan objectives – they are shared values of the American people,” McCarthy added.

“It’s troubling that Democrats continue to vilify the police at a time when they truly need our support.”

Meanwhile, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez downplayed the crime wave and continued calls to "defund the police."

WATCH:

AOC claimed that concerns raised by skyrocketing homicide numbers are just "hysteria."

During a new video this week, AOC called on her supporters to ignore crime statistics - that show violence, murder, and shootings soaring - and instead continue to push for police departments to suffer further budget cuts.
