As you may have heard, the United States in 2020 hit a record 30% crime spike, the largest year-to-year ever recorded.
These particular cities (Portland, Vegas, Minneapolis, Philadelphia, Austin, DC) have been a driving force.
Portland cut $15 million from their police budget, Austin cut by $20 million with another $80 million repurposed. Minneapolis and Philadelphia also cut their police budget.
