Chicago's police superintendent said the city's soaring crime is down to progressive policies.

Chicago Police Superintendent David Brown blamed the Democrat leadership's soft-on-crime policies.

"We are arresting violent offenders; the courts are releasing these people back into the community," he said, according to The Washington Examiner.

Chicago has seen a massive spike in crime under Democratic Mayor Lori Lightfoot's watch, with 70 people being shot and 12 being killed over the weekend.

Brown, the city needs to "challenge the courts to render Chicago safe" through "holding offenders in jail longer, not releasing murderers back into our community."

The electronic monitoring policy, which progressives say is a great alternative to the bail system, has been described by authorities as a "dangerous initiative that puts too many criminals back on the streets and endangers the public."

There are 3,400 accused offenders out in the community with electronic monitoring in Cook County.

In Chicago, there are over 100 murder suspects with ankle monitor bracelets.

Last month, Mayor Lightfoot decided systemic racism is a “public health crisis” and diverted $10 million in grants from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Lightfoot said during a press conference:

"At almost every point in our city’s history, sadly, racism has taken a devastating toll on the health and well-being of our residents of color, and particularly those who are black."

“Without formally acknowledging this history and reality, and the continuing impact of that infamous legacy, looking at the root causes of today’s challenges, we will never be able to move forward as a city and fully provide our communities with the resources that we need to live happy, vibrant, and fulfilled lives.”

In May, Chicago’s biggest police union issued a vote of no confidence in Lori Lightfoot following her progressive policies.

Police Superintendent David Brown and First Deputy Superintendent Eric Carter cited a “lack of consideration” for police officers’ working conditions, WTTW reported.

Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 7 President John Catanzara said in a video that the union’s members spoke “loud and clear” during Wednesday's meeting on the vote.
