Defund Movement In This Town Was A ‘Dismal Failure’

There were nearly 500 homicides in Oakland from 2018 to 2022, according to the San Francisco Chronicle, making the town the most dangerous city in the Bay Area.
From July 6 to 12, Oakland police reported 251 larceny cases, 146 motor vehicle thefts, 43 robberies, 94 assaults and 50 burglaries, according to city data.
“It’s been a long-standing issue that Oakland doesn’t have enough 911 dispatchers and there’s a lot of turnover and attrition in that position,” Scott said. “We don’t have enough dispatchers and people are waiting upwards of 20 minutes to get someone on the phone.”
