Surge in Crime

Sure… criminals run rampant as liberal city leaders demand that their police stand down. I’m sure those two things aren’t related.

Shootings and homicides, which dipped during the initial lockdown phase of the pandemic, are now rising at alarmingly high rates.
In New York, the homicide rate for the first half of the year is up 23% over 2019, led by a huge spike in recent violence. In Chicago, homicides jumped 39% during the last week of June and the first week of July compared to the same period last year. And Los Angeles has seen double-digit rises in homicides the past two months.

    Liberals are disgusting.

    They oppose civil society.

  2. Le Roi du Nord

    Then I must not be a liberal, k even admits it…..

  3. Jason

    But you have previously admitted to being a liberal Leroy.  That toothpaste is out of the tube and you can’t put it back.

  4. Jason

    AOC has all the answers.  She has already stated increase in crime in NYC is due to parents lifting a loaf or bread or other staples needed to feed their kids.   Even Cuomo called her statement “Stupid”.

  5. Kevin Scheunemann


    If you believe in law and order. Fully funding police, and locking crimimals up …no matter what skin color… you are conservative on that.

    Welcome to rational thought. Been a long time away for you.

  6. Mar

    Le ROI would also have to believe that the vast majority of cops are honest hard working people, that liberal policies of no bail in states like New York have been absolute failures, that Black on Black crime is far worse of a problem than cops shooting unarmed Black men, that Black Lives Matter is not a legitimate civil rights group, that Antifa is just a bunch of thugs. And that AOC is is as crazy as a Jay bird when she said that the people who looted in NYC were just doing it to put bread on their table.
    Something tells me that Le Roi really isn’t this law and order type guy he thinks he is.

  7. Le Roi du Nord

    Sorry kids, but I have always been a law and order guy, probably before some of you were born. “Firm, Fair, Consistent”

    And nothing you can make up, conflate, or outright lie about, will change that.  So spin away, but don’t get any dizzier.

  8. dad29

    Sorry, LeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeRoy, but you cannot both vote Democrat and claim to be ‘law and order’ guy.  Madison, Seattle, NYC, Chicago, and Portland (and soon, Milwaukee) are the shitholes made by Democrats.

  9. Kevin Scheunemann


    Why do you vote for lawless democrats then?


  10. Le Roi du Nord

    It appears we have different opinions on what the word “lawless” means, seeing as an alleged republican administration let stone and flynn go free.  And associates with the likes of cohen, manafort, gates, etc.  And since I don’t live in any of the places you mentioned, it really is immaterial to this discussion.  Nor do I advocate capitol punishment for suspected criminals like others on this site do.

    I bet I’m more law abiding than you self-proclaimed conservatives, who are really closet anarchists.

  11. dad29

    Crab-walking with foolishness like “I don’t live there” and whataboutisms don’t cut it, LeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeRoy.

    You cannot be FOR “law and order” and vote Democrat, insofar as that party has become more and more the party of total dis-order, not to mention antithetical to the rule of primary law, that one referenced by Jefferson–the Law of Nature and Nature’s God.

    Your avoidance of parking tickets and jaywalking violations doesn’t make up for the hundreds of thousands of dead babies made so by Democrats that YOU support.  It’s not even in the same planetary system.

    Face it.  You’re a hypocrite, and you lie to yourself every day about your ‘sanctity.’

    By the way, how did Walker “steal” your $6 Large?

  12. Le Roi du Nord


    You say (type, actually) a lot of really sorry and fact-free stuff, but this has to your dumbest one to fate:  “You cannot be FOR “law and order” and vote Democrat”.

    The rule of law, at least here in WI and the US, has nothing to do with god, your version or anybody else’s.  If you want religious rule move to say, a muslim country.  Or does your hypocrisy claim apply only to others and not yourself?



  13. jjf

    Le Roi, you know, the Law of Nature that compels him to type “LeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeRoy” over and over.  

  14. dad29

    Easy to see you’re a State retiree, LeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeRoy, with your total lack of understanding of the fundamentals of law.  Who wrote the first law against murder?  Theft?  Hmmmmmmmmmmmm???

    Hint:   the name is in my last post here.

    One more time:  you cannot be for ‘law and order’ and vote Democrat.  You don’t like it?  Too bad.

  15. Mar

    Oh, come on Le Roi, you had us believing you were for law and order.
    Then you opened your mouth.
    And now you are lying again.
    What a shame, so pathetic.

  16. Mar

    There, does that make you feel better so you are not left out?

  17. Kevin Scheunemann


    So you would vote for a Democrat screaming “defund the police”?

  18. jjf

    Dad29, it’s pretty easy to see that the interpretation of “the Law of Nature and Nature’s God” has changed over the years, what with slavery and evolution and science and all.  You don’t follow the dietary and clothing guidelines of Leviticus, right?

    Come on, tell us who wrote the first law against murder and theft.

  19. Le Roi du Nord


    No, I wouldn’t vote for anyone that screams “defund the police”, D or R.  Never.  Nor would I vote for a republican, or anyone for that matter,  that denies science and history,  wants to inject disinfectants into anyone, thinks windmills cause cancer, that the British had airports in the revolutionary war, or claims that the earth is 6000 years old, and that they alone are the arbiter of some hocus-pocus “absolute truth”.  I reject and denounce aggressive and wilful ignorance by anyone, R or D.


    That is what makes the US such a great place, I don’t have to abide by your interpretation of “the law”.  I can use what actually is the law, as defined in statute, etc.  Religion has no place in our laws.


  20. Kevin Scheunemann


    So if Biden agrees with “defunding the police”, (he has to to keep what he perceives as black vote) but adheres to the warming religion…you would still vote Biden if Trump is only other choice?

  21. Mar

    I guess Le Roi is going to sit out this presidential election, unless he votes 3rd party.

  22. jjf

    But you know “defunding the schools” is perfectly fine with some people.

  23. Le Roi du Nord

    k and mar:

    I don’t deal in hypothetical situations like that.  I’ll leave that to you guys.


    They only want to defund public schools, and funnel all the $$ to their private religious indoctrination institutions of narrow thinking.

  24. Mar

    Well Le Roi, I don’t see how you can ever pdefend Senile Joe since he is not for law and order or law enforcement.
    (And yes, I do believe he now has some kind of mild dementia)

  25. Le Roi du Nord

    I’ve never tried to to that, whatever it is you are talking about.

    Listen to the last Rose Garden spiel from trump, then talk to us all about dementia.

  26. Jason

    >But you know “defunding the schools” is perfectly fine with some people

    But worse than that, murdering babies for a night of bliss is fine with some people.

  27. Kevin Scheunemann



    I don’t believe you live your platitude that you will not vote for a Democrat defunding the police.

  28. Le Roi du Nord


    You are still free to believe whatever you like, however wrong, misguided, and inaccurate it may be.  And again, your “beliefs” have no bearing on reality or the truth.

  29. Kevin Scheunemann


    Just trying to show you your dishonesty on your alleged opposition to defunding the police.


  30. Le Roi du Nord

    All you are doing k, is digging a deeper hole. I was 100% honest with my statement. You should try it.

  31. Le Roi du Nord

    And on a much brighter note, were you curious enough you could get up early and see the GEOWISE comet
    in the pre-dawn sky just to the left of the Big Dipper. It’s over a billion years old.

  32. Kevin Scheunemann


    So was that comet diagnosed by a core sample?  Or do you take “guessing” as science these days?


  33. jonnyv

    Dear Kevin. Shut Up.

    “Solar radiation tends to evaporate carbon and other material found in comets.

    As a result, the study concluded that the more carbon is found in a comet’s coma, the less time it has been around the Sun while the less carbon is found, the more time was spent around the Sun.”

    Even if we were able to do a core sample, you probably wouldn’t believe it. As you believe the earth is only like 1000 years old or something bonkers. So, just step out on this one.


  34. Le Roi du Nord


    Smart folks know stuff and try to teach folks like you. Sometimes it isn’t worth the effort.

  35. Kevin Scheunemann


    How does the time spent around, or near the sun, determine age?  All that determines is possible time near the sun.

    Your jumbo does not discern age at all.

    Both of you are awfully arrogant without sample evidence.



  36. Kevin Scheunemann


    So will you pledge to refuse to vote for anyone willing to defund the police?

    I will.


  37. Le Roi du Nord


    Will you pledge to vote for someone that doesn’t shill beans on the Resolute Desk?

  38. dad29

    LeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeRoy hates it when  he has to admit he’s wrong, wrong, wrong………and lying about his upcoming vote, too.


  39. Le Roi du Nord

    What am I wrong about, dud?

  40. Kevin Scheunemann


    He was only showing compassion to counter AOC’s racist attack.

    I call it being an awesome pro-Hispanic president.

    But all you liberals know is tearing down, destruction, and hate of successful minorities.

    It is despicable you are not praising Trump for fixing the leftist hate you fail to denounce.

    Awful. Just awful.

  41. Le Roi du Nord

    “pro-Hispanic”   Tell that to all the kids in cages.  You really do have a different set of definitions than normal English speaking folk.

    Calling me despicable won’t make you or trump any more respectable, or smarter.

  42. Kevin Scheunemann


    Illegal immigrants are not citizens.

    President has duty to citizens, not criminals from other countries that refuse to follow rules.

  43. Le Roi du Nord

    How utterly christian of you, promoting torture of children. Amazing hypocrisy on your part.

  44. Mar

    Gee Le Roi, where you outraged when President Obama did it?
    And you fell for another fake story.
    I guess then, you hate Obama as much President Trump.

  45. Mar

    “Listen to the last Rose Garden spiel from trump, then talk to us all about dementia.”
    Gee, Le Roi, did President Trump use a teleprompter? Did he refuse to answer questions?
    I know dementia when I see it.
    Biden has dementia.
    Sadly, Le Roi, you are showing some signs as well

  46. Kevin Scheunemann


    Who is being tortured?

    The only torturing being done in this nation is by liberals…to truth, civility, and to cops….and you lumber along with the radical liberal torture with barely a criticism.

    You have to be dragged kicking and screaming to denounce the most radical liberal BS.

    When you stop torturing society with your awful worldview, then I might take you seriously.

  47. dad29

    For complete and total mental debauchery, see the Jiffy & LeeeeeeeeeeRoy team!!

    Every business has a file-drawer filled with “Don’t Waste Time” folders–populated by the likes of those two.


  48. jjf

    Well, at least you used Capital Letters for our tag.

    File-drawers!  Folders!  Is that where they keep the carbon paper?

    You’re hilarious. 



  49. Le Roi du Nord

    Sure k, forcibly taking a child from their parents and locking them up is the christian way, at least in your mind. Good thing most of the civilized world disagrees with you.


    What has a teleprompter have to do with dementia. Neither you nor trump can string together a cogent thought on your own, and you both prove it every day.


    Yet you continue to waste your time. That says a lot.

  50. Mar

    Yep, Le Roi, defending a non law and order guy.
    Showing once again that you are a liar.
    How pathetic you are.
    And no condemning President Obama when he did the same thing but worse.
    You really are a pathetic person.

  51. Le Roi du Nord


    And you failed again. Congrats.

  52. Mar

    That’s all you got, old man?

  53. Le Roi du Nord

    It doesn’t take much to get the best of you, mar. Easy pickings.

  54. Mar

    You just cannot help yourself, Le Roi. Not smart enough to tell the truth, so you lie.
    Still waiting for you admit that President Obama put kids in cages and President Trump got them out.
    But I know you won’t.
    Because you don’t know your history.

  55. Le Roi du Nord

    No mar, the truth is you are like a hungry bass, taking the bait without any thought or purpose. And I only have to drag it by you once. It’s so easy it is almost shameful.

    Have a great weekend swilling your dumpster beer and calling folks names.

  56. Mar

    Again Le Roi, I am glad your dog loves you. Not sure how anyone else can if they know about your lying, dishonesty, hatred and bigotry.

  57. Le Roi du Nord


    Those are your words not mine. Have another ice beer, think up a new schtick.

  58. Mar

    Why, yes I will have another ice beer. Nothing wrong with that. Especially since my taste buds disappeared a long time due to a fire department injury.
    So, if you are trying to shame me, nice but like as you always do, you fail.

  59. Le Roi du Nord

    No mar, I wasn’t trying to shame you since you do such a fine job of it yourself. I was offering a suggestion for some self improvement you sorely need. But that is your decision to make.
