Data from the San Francisco Police Department show that since 2021, there have been 11.1% more attacks in the city. Robberies, larceny, car theft, and rape reports all increased from the previous year.
Sgt. Betsy Brantner Smith, a representative for the National Police Association, stated on “Fox & Friends First” on Friday that towns all around the country were being forced to deal with increased crime rates, but she blamed policing shortages on police resignations and retirements.
Jamie McBride of the LAPD voiced worry about the increased criminality in the neighbourhood as a result of fewer police during the same episode.
This place is unsafe, McBride said. “Do not come to Los Angeles, I have been advising people for more than a year. You cannot be safe with us.”
David DePape, 42, the suspect in the incident, which occurred around 2 a.m. PT on Friday, was apprehended and charged with attempted homicide, assault with a dangerous weapon, elder abuse, burglary, and other offences, according to San Francisco Police Chief William Scott.

Despite being in Washington, D.C. at the time, Nancy Pelosi was reported by police to have been the attack’s intended target.
