There are several reasons to explain this Democrat crime wave across the nation. Clearly their stupid policies like defund the police had a role in this crime insanity. Bail reform and letting people out of prison certainly have a role. However, the CDC has a role in all of this as well.
By telling people to wear masks in public the CDC is fueling this crime wave. The bad guys love the masking. For criminals, it is a get-out-of-jail-free card. They mask up and commit a crime in broad daylight. Nobody can tell who they are, and you could never convict in court when their face is masked. We hate the mask, but they love the mask.
