crime scene do not crossUS law enforcement is in crisis, and a journalist and former officer says it's playing out as violence in the city streets.

Chicago, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, and Denver are among dozens of major cities in the US with soaring crime in 2020. Randy Sutton of Law Enforcement News Network says it is no coincidence that those cities are bleeding police officers.

"They're retiring at the moment that they can, bringing all that experience with them, whereas they would normally stay extra years in order to serve more," Sutton explains. "You are seeing people actually just quitting or leaving their police agencies to go take jobs with other agencies in smaller areas."

It only took nine months this year for Minneapolis to match the homicide cases for all of 2019. Meanwhile, as the Twin City leads the police purge, arson is up 55 percent.

"Minneapolis is a perfect example of the insanity of the politicians," Sutton continues. "They have literally run out almost a third of their various police officers. They are now so limited in the number of cops that they have that … they're actually going to have to hire outside jurisdiction police officers to answer 911 calls."

And regarding all the talk about police reform, the former officer asserts that the police are not the ones who need to be reformed.

"The crime that is spiraling out of control, it can be explicitly blamed on the politicians who run … the cities," Sutton concludes.
