Karine Jean-Pierre Claims it is ‘Not a Yes or No Question’ if America’s Big Cities Are Safe

During her daily White House press briefing today, White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre claimed that it is “not a yes or no question” if America’s big cities are safe.

Jean-Pierre was asked, “Does President Biden think America’s big cities are safe?”

“It is not a yes or no question, it is very much a question of what has he done,” Jean-Pierre responded.

A recent CNN article was titled, “Once nicknamed ‘Murderapolis,’ the city that became the center of the ‘Defund the Police’ movement is grappling with heightened violent crime.”

The article reported that 93 people were murdered in Minneapolis last year, according to city crime data, which was just a few shy of the total killings in 1995, when the city earned the nickname “Murderapolis.”

In Chicago, over the weekend, 38 were shot, 7 fatally across the city. Among the victims who were wounded were 13-year-old and 16-year-old boys in separate shootings.

According to another report, homicides in Los Angeles reached the highest level in 15 years during the 1st half of 2022.

There were 181 murders in the city, with 75% of them involving a firearm, according to the statistics.

In the first six months of 2021, there were 180 murders in LA.

A 17-year-old was gunned down in New York City yesterday by a group in ski masks as nine total were shot in a 24-hour period.
