The Law Enforcement Legal Defense Fund, an advocacy group that champions police officers and the challenging jobs they do, compiled data after Floyd’s death on May 25, 2020, which made cops the left’s public enemy no. 1. The results show that defunding the police sent people to their graves.

“Murder surged as police reduced their activity including stops, searches, and arrests,” the LELDF noted in its findings, and the group blamed the alarming uptick on less proactive policing in already dangerous communities.

“Since June 2020, local leaders and activistsʼ increasing attacks demoralized, debilitated, and, in some cases, defunded law enforcement. As police stepped back, violence surged,” the group noted.

“Urban areas are hardest hit by growing bloodshed with 35% rise in homicide across Americaʼs largest 60 cities. Meanwhile, aggravated assaults (which includes non-fatal shootings) increased by 10.5% — the largest jump in three decades,” the LELDF added.

Some stunning city-by-city statistics, which correlate hands-off law enforcement with more death, were also shared by the group. When comparing homicides with the number of people arrested, the group analyzed data from June 2019 to February 2020 and compared it with data from June 2020 to February 2021.
