It was just yesterday in Oakland California that Democratic Senator Barbara Boxer was robbed of her cell phone and assaulted by an unnamed assailant in broad daylight.
In response, Boxer tweeted out that “Earlier today former Senator Barbara Boxer was assaulted in the Jack London Square neighborhood of Oakland. The assailant pushed her in the back, stole her cell phone and jumped in a waiting car. She is thankful that she was not seriously injured.”.

Though she was unharmed, this inevitably resuscitates the debate regarding defunding the police, especially larger metro cities. In a public statement, Trump said that “Former California Senator Barbara Boxer was savagely assaulted and robbed yesterday in Oakland, where they defunded the police. Our once great cities, like New York, Detroit, San Francisco, and so many others, have become a paradise for criminals because of Democrats,”.
In an act of unintended irony regarding getting robbed in a city that has defunded its police, Boxer was quoted as saying that “it was shocking and so unsuspected. You just don’t imagine that would happen,”.
However, the assault happened in a city that has seen its homicide rate spike to over 30% to what it was at this time last year, as reported in early July.
It was only in late June of this year when the Oakland City Council made the questionable decision to divert well over 17 million dollars from the police department to invest in various social programs. This was a move that Oakland Police Chief Leronne Armstrong presciently said would lead to a “crisis”.
This crisis is a weed that could well spread to the entire garden of American cities as Democrats seek to tighten their death grip on America’s police force.
