Father’s Day weekend in Chicago brought with it dozens of shootings:
Chicago weekend: 49 people shot, 5 fatally. Last weekend, 43 people were shot, 3 fatally. https://t.co/5S65XvivPZ

That’s just one example of the crime spike in many U.S. cities. The Biden administration will now reportedly have the president spending more of his public time focusing on the issue of crime:
Sign of the times:
Politico: “President Biden will be devoting his public events to the issue of crime and how his administration is responding to the uptick in violence. Keep an eye on this one.” https://t.co/9LTkOEPHwC

Why the sudden shift in focus?
My guess is internal polls caused this. https://t.co/JUlWXTawuw

That very well could be.

And that will all somehow be the fault of Republicans.
And Kamala is on the border…. https://t.co/LOJUnIC4Xa

They will respond by dropping all charges against looters and rioters in Democratic cities. See the news out of NYC this morning https://t.co/aaRFRWW0sA

It's not really a national problem though. It's big cities, and not even all big cities. Residents just need to throw their city leadership out and elect people who will get tough on crime.

They're going to elect more Marxist DA's instead.

This is what happens when Democrats and Joe Biden disparage police and threaten their funding. https://t.co/L2EuY06kYx

The rhetoric to come from Biden and his administration is as predictable as it gets:
He's blamed white supremacy for the rise in crime and violence. So this should be a fun one. https://t.co/AAxF3cmids
— Stephen L. Miller (@redsteeze) June 21, 2021
Calls for more gun control will naturally also be in the cards.
Let me guess, he's going to blame it on those boogeymen white supremacists that are super, super real and obviously omnipresent and running around on a daily basis causing havoc and violence. https://t.co/2XEvDowFRx

Shpuld start with those white supremacists on the south side of Chicago. https://t.co/c4nRiUyJqz

Lol. He said nothing during the summer of riots 2020. He has yet to comment of the unprecedented executions in Chicago and in the Bronx. He is all talk no action. What is our greatest threat? He said white supremacists and from what I've seen this weekend Joe Biden is wrong again https://t.co/vHZSyGL3Nz

Maybe Biden should start by saying that initiatives supported by the person who is now his VP contributed to the problem:

If Democrats like these want to know why crime is spiking in many cities, they should look in a mirror. Or maybe they should look here as well:
Two of Biden's top DOJ appointees—Vanita Gupta and Kristen Clarke—have explicitly called to defund the police.
If Biden wants to figure out what is causing the rise in violence, he should start there. https://t.co/M2Lntb1INt

But at the end of the day…
Biden cannot and will not do anything substantial on crime.
The progressive wing won't let him. https://t.co/erub8Uv1pA

Biden will use addressing crime as an excuse to push the Left’s political agendas that likely would only worsen the problem.
