House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) slammed Democrats in a statement on Sunday amid news that thousands of police officers have quit police departments nationwide as a crime wave rocks the country. “New York City saw 2,600 officers retire in 2020 compared with 1,509 the year before,” The New York Times reported. “Resignations in Seattle increased to 123 from 34 and retirements to 96 from 43. Minneapolis, which had 912 uniformed officers in May 2019, is now down to 699. At the same time, many cities are contending with a rise in shootings and homicides.” The crisis at police departments, which followed months of demonization by Democrats who called the police “cancer” and pushed for “no more policing,” comes as homicide rates increased 30% last year and have already increased 24 percent this year, the Times reported separately. McCarthy responded to the latest news about the crises at police departments across America by telling The Daily Wire in a statement that the problem was a direct result of Democrats’ attacks on police.
