With a history-making 77 homicides in the Liberal Dimocrat city so far this year, and multiple small business owners complaining of an epidemic of shoplifting for which the short-staffed cops can’t help, you’d think Austinites would be in favor of returning some of the city council’s deleted one-third of its budget to the police.
You’d be wrong. Sixty-eight percent of voters rejected the idea on Tuesday. Thanks to major Leftist money from Soros to out-of-state unions to get out the vote. I suppose we residents should be happy the Dimocrat council (and one self-declared communist) hasn’t closed the police department entirely. Might be a good time to start carrying. Concealed or open. Now that we’ve become Dodge City.
