Blaze News original: 10 times cops bowed down to emboldened crooks around them

Readers of Blaze News no doubt recall the jaw-dropping moment a few months back when Toronto police told residents to leave their car keys at their front doors for thieves to take in order to lessen the risk of crooks physically attacking them in their homes to acquire their keys.

Of course, the backlash was brutal for what smacked of total surrender. But in many ways the suggestion summed up the striking degree to which some police have thrown up their hands in numerous instances, in numerous places, bowing down as crime spikes around them.

“We ain’t f***in’ around!” one militant reportedly was heard yelling at officers while another declared, “I’ll knock you the f*** out, bitch!”

To be clear, it can be convincingly argued that police and their departments may not be at fault for this disturbing trend. Indeed, progressive politicians, woke judges, and soft-on-crime district attorneys have been hell-bent on dismissing criminal charges, siding with crooks, punishing cops, and literally defunding police — all of which demonstrates to lawless types that laws against crime often don’t mean much these days.

In the face of such lack of support — and particularly what leftists learned they could get away with after George Floyd and 2020’s dubiously named “Summer of Love” — who can blame cops for thinking twice before taking action, or even out-and-out retreating?

Here are 10 times police did just that:

Portland police — in riot gear, no less — caught on video running away from mob trying to prevent home foreclosure

Video caught the moments when a violent leftist mob managed to chase away Portland police in December 2020 in order to prevent a home foreclosure. Members of the mob kicked and threw rocks at retreating police vehicles and ran up on cops and appeared to try to steal their equipment while taunting and threatening them; they ended up literally chasing officers down a street. “We ain’t f***in’ around!” one militant reportedly was heard yelling at officers while another declared, “I’ll knock you the f*** out, bitch!”

Video shows Austin police vehicle backing away from advancing mob amid street takeover

The incident in question took place in February 2023, as the police department stated it had responded to four street takeovers on a single night, KXAN-TV reported, adding that the lawlessness included a crowd throwing rocks and bottles and pointing lasers at officers. In the above video, what appears to be a firecracker exploded very close to the police vehicle as it was backing up from the emboldened mob. The station said another video shows a crowd pushing a police vehicle around, and police said one officer was injured and “several police cars” were damaged.

Leftist militant sucker-punches videographer in head outside drag queen story hour; sheriff’s deputy standing just feet away does nothing

This incident took place in April 2023 outside the West Hollywood Library, where the drag queen story hour was taking place. In a clip posted to Twitter by Los Angeles reporter Samuel Braslow, a videographer dressed in purple and blue repeatedly begs an L.A. sheriff’s deputy standing next to him for protection from a growing number of leftists moving toward him in a menacing fashion. When the deputy begins walking away, the videographer asks him, “Why are you leaving me, sir?” After the sucker-punch, the deputy raises a finger at the attacker and says rather half-heartedly, “Stop fighting, sir.” Not only did that deputy appear to witness the physical attack, but at least three other deputies standing farther away did as well — and none of them did a thing about it.

Women caught on video twerking on hood of Chicago police vehicle; cops seem handcuffed by raucous scene

Chicago police in June 2021 said they were investigating a viral video showing a trio of women twerking on top of a department SUV. No, it wasn’t a violent crime — but the brazenness of the display while a crowd gathered around the vehicle and police in the clip didn’t dare do anything about it underscores the degree to which people are convinced they’ll get a free pass for such actions these days. Indeed, a Chicago Sun-Times columnist called out police in the vehicle for encouraging “mayhem” in the streets.
