Over the last several years, violent crime levels have been rising across the United States. Especially in urban centers, cases of murder, assault, and other deadly incidents have risen. In a report given midway through 2023, violent crime remains elevated in comparison to pre-pandemic levels. 24% more homicides occurred in the first half of this year than in 2019. In cities like New York, San Francisco, and Philadelphia, far left progressive politicians have handicapped law enforcement officials and made it increasingly difficult for these public servants to do their duty and keep public order and safety by passing restrictive and demonizing legislation in the name of “social justice” while promoting “anti-cop” rhetoric which has fueled animosity towards and distrust for the police.
In a harrowing incident in California, a bartender reportedly killed a 27 year old woman, beating her to death with a fire extinguisher. Dino Rojas-Morena (aged 26) was arrested on a murder charge in early November for killing Tatum Goodwin. Goodwin worked at Carmelita’s, a Mexican restaurant in Laguna Beach. Moreno attacked Goodwin at 1 a.m. near the restaurant as she walked to her car, and then beat her to death in an alleyway. He dragged her body to a construction site nearby and covered her face with a sandbag before fleeing.
In a recent development, it appears that the son of an affluent Pennsylvania dentist who murdered his wife on a vacation in Africa is speaking out. Julian Rudolph claimed that his father calls him routinely from a federal prison, but that he does not often pick up as he is unable to forgive him for the horrific murder. Julian has claimed also that the U.S. government has been trying to bar him and his sister from collecting millions of dollars from his father’s estate. The federal government has claimed that their father had defrauded insurance companies and seized the bulk of his assets to achieve reimbursement.
