Trey Gowdy Drops Hammer on Biden for Not ‘Cracking Down on Violent Crime’

Former congressman Trey Gowdy has dropped the hammer on Democrat President Joe Biden over his lack of outrage at spiraling violent crime.

Gowdy, the host of “Sunday Night in America,” blasted Biden for being more “animated” about voting rights than the criminal violence that’s plaguing Democrat-controlled cities

“I want you to think about how animated Joe Biden gets over whether you have a month to early vote or three weeks early vote,” Gowdy said.

“Remember, he compared half the country to Bull Connor and Jefferson Davis and George Wallace over whether you have three weeks or four weeks.

“He gets very animated about voting rights.

“Have you seen any animation about simply your right to live?

“Or your right to not be assaulted?

“Or your right to not have your car stolen from you?

“Where is his outrage?

“I mean, he’s got manufactured outrage over voting rights, and he can’t name a single person who wanted to vote last election and could not.

“Meanwhile, you and I could spend the rest of the day naming actual victims, including homicide victims, since he’s been the president,” he said.

“So no. Look, if you’re talking about ghost guns, then no, you’re not serious about cracking down on violent crime.”

The U.S. Department of Justice’s National Crime Victimization Survey, in the latest year available (2020), shows that there were 4,558,150 rapes, robberies, and aggravated assaults, and the FBI reports 21,570 murders, according to Fox News.

Of those, 350,460 rapes, robberies, and aggravated assaults (see Table 8) and 13,620 murders involved firearms.

Adding those numbers up, 7.9% of violent crimes used guns.

It’s not hard to explain the increased violence, however,

Many urban areas saw more than half of prison inmates released because of the pandemic, and the releases still continue.

Newly convicted criminals weren’t going to prison.

Nationwide, there were over 340,000 fewer inmates in jails and prisons in 2021 than in 2019.

Cities cut police budgets and ordered officers to stand down in many places.

New York City cut its police budget by $1 billion.

Prosecutors in many major urban areas have refused to prosecute violent criminals.

For example, two rival drug gangs got into a gunfight in Chicago during broad daylight in October.

The fight, caught on video, left one shooter dead and two others wounded.

Cook County District Attorney Kim Foxx declined to prosecute any gang members, initially explaining they were “mutual combatants.”

Throw in bail reform and some places cutting criminal penalties, and you have a real mess.

In Harris County, Texas, criminals released since 2018 on little or no bail (some of them previously charged with murder) have murdered 156 people.
