USA: This Is Insane. The Defund The Police Commie Democrats Have Proposed A Law In Crime Ridden Cleveland, Ohio That Would Require All Late-Night Businesses TO HIRE Their Own Armed Security.

Unbelievable. Police are supposed to be armed security for the entire city. Police motto is, 'Protect and Serve' the community. The Commie Democrats abolish the police, no bail, no jail justice for criminals policies are the reason for the daily violence in the city. They are not arresting anybody, not even for gun crimes, and when they do arrest a criminal, they are immediately released out onto the streets to continue terrorizing the neighborhood. The Commie Democrats keep saying they want to get all guns off of the streets BUT NOT THE CRIMINALS using the guns and most all are illegally possessing the gun. They actually say that sending the criminals to prison for illegal gun possession is not going to reduce the shootings. Huh? So the criminal has already broken their gun control laws and they believe letting them go free is the solution? That's some pretty twisted logic. Sure let them keep obtaining the gun illegally, I mean they already know where to buy it, and keep terrorizing the neighborhood because in their twisted mind it's not the person using the gun that's the problem. Then here in Cleveland, the Commie Democrats want business owners to hire ARMED SECURITY to protect their property and themselves from the criminals the Commie Democrats keep releasing onto the streets. I can't believe this is their solution to the wild wild west environment THEY CREATED. 🙄 (emphasis mine)
Look at these crime statistics for Cleveland, Ohio. ☝ The city is ranked 2 out of 100 with 100 being the safest neighborhood in America. I took this screenshot from Neighborhood Scout website.

I also want to point out that the Commie Democrats want Los Angeles and Orange County to be like Commie Democrat-run Cleveland, Ohio who is far advanced in their decay of the city with the abolish the police, no bail, no jail justice for criminals policies. That's where Los Angeles and Orange County are headed if people don't put a stop to it. (emphasis mine)

👇 back to my regular spiel. 👇
Murder is already a crime. We don't have a gun problem. We have a lack of self-control problem, a criminal supremacists problem and a Commie Democrats local district attorney's, judges, parole officers soft on crime problem, not doing shit to catch the criminals as in crimes go unsolved, and when they do catch the criminals, they immediately release them back onto the streets to allow them to continue terrorizing the community. These same people siding with the criminals want to take away YOUR CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT to keep and bear arms in order to defend yourself, your business, your family and home against these criminal supremacists and a tyrannical government. Remember, criminals DO NOT obey laws. Therefore, criminals will have access to guns through gun trafficking venues and you will be left defenseless with no guns because the same government siding with criminals THEY'RE ALLOWING to terrorize you with guns said they wanted to keep you safe from guns. The anti-gun prosecutors are not even prosecuting gun crimes. But god forbid you kill an intruder, robber or rapist in self-defense in your home or on your private property, these same Commie Democrat district attorneys or prosecutors will charge you with murder and have you locked up for years in prison.

CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - A mass shooting in Cleveland’s Warehouse District last weekend that sent nine people to the hospital was a devastating wake-up call to many in the city that the gun violence is out of control.

“Gun violence has really spiked and gone through the roof in our city, and I’m just appalled that we continuously see the same thing reoccurring,” said Ward 5 Cleveland City Councilman Richard Starr.

Recent statistics from police show shootings are up 12%, murders are up 30% and carjackings in the city are up 98% from last year.

“We have to take every action and every measure that exists to figure out a solution right now,” Starr said.

Starr has been touched by violence firsthand. One of his best friends was shot and killed this January at a gas station on Woodland Avenue in Cleveland’s Central neighborhood.

“A guy walks in with an ak47 assault rifle, and they get to tussling and fighting and he gets killed and he ends up getting killed right inside this gas station,” said Starr. “I too am affected by gun violence, not just an elected official passing laws no, I’m on the front lines.”

If the ordinance passes it would require any bar, restaurant, store, or gas station operating between 11 p.m. and 5 a.m. to have at least one-armed security guard.

“What it can do is it can serve that it’s not like you can just run in somewhere and just start shooting up the spot with your gun,” Starr said.

General manager of Map Room in the Warehouse District Kimberly Kowalski understands the need to ramp up security.

“It’s super unfortunate being like a small business down here in the Warehouse District and it feels like a nice place to work but when you hear about the recent crime that’s been happening just a few short blocks from us it’s pretty concerning,” said Kowalski.

Map Room already has a Cleveland police officer from 9 p.m. until 3 a.m. on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, but she thinks having one seven days a week might be tough for business owners to afford.

“It does seem like a great idea seeing the uprise in crime, but I don’t think it’s a reasonable expectation for the small businesses down here who are also trying to make money,” Kowalski said.

19 News spoke with several other bars off camera who agree the ordinance goes too far saying hiring one armed security officer can cost between $50 to $70 an hour.

“This gun violence is too big of an expense that we keep dealing with as far as these funerals that keep getting paid for,” Starr said. “As many victims that we have of gun violence we all gotta do our due diligence so if we gotta adjust some hours of operations so be it.”

The bill would also require these late-night businesses to have surveillance cameras inside and outside that are registered with the city and if crimes are committed at that late-night business, they’d be required to hire four-armed security guards.

“I understand what we need to do, and I feel like I can help bridge the gap so we can get these solutions in place so we can make sure our city is safe,” Starr said. “These people with these guns do not run this city, we do as leaders, we run this city and we’re gonna do our job.”

Councilman Starr said the ordinance could pass as early as August and if it does pass any late-night business that doesn’t hire armed security could be charged with a misdemeanor.

CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - Several law enforcement agencies will join Crime Stoppers of Cuyahoga County Thursday afternoon to announce details on a $10,000 reward being offered to help catch a dangerous fugitive.

The U.S. Marshals, Cleveland Heights, East Cleveland police and Cuyahoga Metropolitan Housing Authority police are working together to get Lorenzo Watson off the streets.

Crime Stoppers said the man is armed and wanted in connection with a homicide and numerous felonious assaults.

“Due to the violent and reckless nature of these crimes, and the suspect’s relentless intention to do harm, the apprehension of the individual in paramount,” said Crime Stoppers.

Lorenzo Watson is accused of going on a brutal crime spree in Cuyahoga County, starting back on June 11th.

That’s when CMHA police say he shot a man in the parking lot of an apartment building on 129th and Superior.

Just one day later, police say Watson was involved in another shooting.

This one was in East Cleveland on Delmont Avenue, hospitalizing the victim for weeks.

About one week after that, June 20th, he hit in Cleveland Heights.

Police say he beat a man inside a home with a sledgehammer and took off.

“He ended up crawling out a second story window onto a roof, jumping onto the driveway going down a roadway and neighbors called police when they saw him standing outside, covered in his own blood,” said Captain Jeremy Young with the Cleveland Heights Police Department.

The violence continued on July 6th, this time, turning deadly.

Police say Watson gunned down a man in an apartment building on Terrace Road in East Cleveland in a robbery gone bad.

This time, he had two accomplices to lure the man out of his room.

“We believe that they knew exactly what they were doing before they went to the 7th floor and did it,” said Detective Commander Joseph Marche with the East Cleveland Police Department.

Police say there’s no telling what Watson will do next, and that’s why they need your help.

Crimestoppers and the U.S. Marshals are offering a combined $10,000 reward for any information leading to his arrest.

“Don’t confront him,” said Detective Sergeant Reginald Holcomb with the East Cleveland Police Department. “Call the police. If you see something, say something.”

Police are hoping it will make the difference before Watson strikes again.

You can reach Crimestoppers at 216-252-7463. The number for the U.S. Marshals is 1-866-492-6833. You can stay anonymous.
