The District of Columbia police union blamed the Obama-endorsed #OccupyDC goons for the rising crime rate in Washington DC this year.
The Foundry reported:
The violent crime rate in Washington, D.C., is up 13 percent since the Occupy D.C. protest began this fall as police officers have been pulled out of local neighborhoods and reassigned to the protest.
The chairman of the local police union pinned the blame on the city’s redistribution of resources, noting that on some shifts between two and 18 neighborhood patrol officers have relocated to Occupy D.C. Those protesters are primarily based in McPherson Square and Freedom Plaza, two downtown locations near the White House.
Just like everything else Obama has touched, the #Occupy movement has become a complete disaster.
