The progressive left's "soft-on-crime" policies and open embracement of the "Defund the Police" movement has caused crimes against life and property to skyrocket across the nation. In some places, violent crime is up as much as 300%. David believes that the American people deserve to feel safe in their own neighborhoods. We cannot continue to allow violent criminals and repeat offenders to skirt accountability and roam our streets. David believes the best way to push back against the progressive left is by barring federal funding to states who defund the police and cities whose district attorney's refuse to prosecute crime. As widespread "smash-and-grab" robberies devastate small businesses, David will push for the Department of Justice and the FBI to prosecute guilty parties using interstate commerce laws.
