The policies of liberal politicians lead to more crime as evidenced by places like New York City and San Francisco.
No bail or low bail along with slap on the wrist penalties for crimes has led these cities to become bastions of criminal activity.
But now the mayor of San Francisco, the district represented by House Speaker and California Rep. Nancy Pelosi, is finally fighting back, KPIX reported.
Mayor London Breed launched an emergency police intervention in San Francisco’s crime-ridden Tenderloin neighborhood Tuesday, targeting a pipeline of illegal drugs that has been fueling a surge in gun violence and deadly fentanyl overdoses.

Breed’s anger and frustration over the crime surge in the city were on full display at her noon news conference.
“It’s time the reign of criminals who are destroying our city, it is time for it to come to an end,” the frustrated mayor said. “And it comes to an end when we take the steps to more aggressive with law enforcement. More aggressive with the changes in our policies and less tolerate of all the bullshit that has destroyed our city.”
The Twitter account for the San Francisco Police Department’s Tenderloin Station shared some of the police activity of the past week on Tuesday.
“Last week, drug enforcement in the TL: -seized over 950 grams of drugs (more than 600 grams fentanyl) -seized over $3,400 in drug money -seized 3 knives and 1 taser -arrested 17 dealers (14 had previous SF arrests, 5 violating stay away orders, 6 outstanding arrest warrants)” it said.

And 14 of the people arrested had previous arrests in the San Francisco area.
The mayor also said she wanted to fund the police more, rather than the defund the police mantra from so many leftists, changing the surveillance ordinance so police can attack crime in real time and cracking down on the sale of stolen goods.
“In recent months we’ve not only seen a number of high-profile incidents of brazen robberies and car break-ins but also street behavior and criminal activity especially in the Tenderloin that has become far too normal and cannot continue to be tolerated,” the mayor said.
“All of our residents, our workers and everyone who visits our city should feel safe no matter what part of town they are in. I know San Francisco is a compassionate city,” she said. “We are a city that prides ourselves on second chances and rehabilitation. But we’re not a city where anything goes. Our compassion should not be mistaken for weakness or indifference.”
In October, The Republican National Committee showed a montage video of Democrats calling for the defunding of the police.
“Suck it up. Defunding the police has to happen. We need to defund the police,” Missouri Rep. Cori Bush said.
“You don’t have one bad apple. You don’t have four bad apples. You have a system-wide problem in that police department,” Texas’ Beto O’Rourke said.
“And only by completely dismantling that system and rebuilding it intentionally with the community members at the table do you have any hope of getting it right,” he said.
But most notably was Mayor Breed, who has now changed her tune.
“We are gonna reduce funding in the police department and redirect that money,” she said in the video.
“We need to look at ways in which we can reduce the amount of resources that were are providing the department (and) redirect those funds,” she said.
It is astounding how your mind can change when you actually do the radical and ridiculous ideas of the Democrat Party and see the results.
At least, unlike some other mayors, this one finally sees the error of her ways.
