Destructive crime not only threatens the safety of individuals but also wreaks havoc on local communities. Recently, KFC's announcement of leaving Chicago due to rampant crime sheds light on the devastating impact of lawlessness on businesses and residents alike. When police are hindered by politicians and communities become unsafe, businesses are left with no option but to retreat, taking away jobs and economic opportunities with them. It is crucial for both politicians and law enforcement to be held accountable for neglecting public safety and the rule of law. The prevalence of far-left ideologies in city governance, as seen in mayoral administrations in San Francisco, Los Angeles, New York, and Chicago, has prioritized leniency on crime over community safety, resulting in an exodus of businesses. The time has come for citizens to demand change, vote wisely, and reclaim their neighborhoods from the grips of lawlessness.
