San Bernardino: Violent Crime High, Prosecutions Low

posted on September 12, 2016

San Bernardino, Calif., location of the deadly terrorist attack late last year that killed 14, is experiencing a sharp jump in violent crime this year, leaving city and law enforcement officials wondering why. 

Well, let us help you with that a little. But first the details: With four months left in 2016, there have already been 150 shootings and 47 murders in the city of only 216,000 residents. Last year there were only 44 murders, and that included the 14 killed in the terror attack at a holiday party by the husband-wife jihadi duo. 

Might we suggest that, just like in Chicago, San Bernardino’s lack of prosecution of violent criminals violating existing gun laws could be at least partly to blame. San Bernardino is located in the federal Central District for California, the district that placed dead last (Number 90 out of 90) in 2015 for federal weapons prosecutions. Perhaps prosecuting bad guys instead of further restricting the rights of good guys might be the answer?
