CNN Analyst Has ‘No Idea’ What’s Behind ‘Smash and Grab’ Robberies — Then Gives up the Answer

by admin

A CNN analyst — a former Philadelphia police commissioner and CNN senior law enforcement analyst, no less — serves up a perfect example of why CNN’s ratings continue to swirl down the toilet at breakneck speed. Simply put, can’t make it up; don’t have to. And the best part is they totally don’t get it. Or do they?

Either way, this guy rivals Fredo Cuomo, Don Lemon, and Brian Stelter in mental acuity.

First, a bit of background.

As we’ve reported, flash-mob robberies, so-called “smash and grabs,” which are rampant — wait for it — in many Democrat-run cities across America, have become all the rage. As is the case with any important issue facing the country, the key question is why are they occurring and what do have to do to stop them?

In what can only be described as “the genius of CNN,” the above-mentioned analyst, Charles Ramsey, has pondered the same question. While the former police commissioner and law enforcement analyst claims to have “no idea” why the wave of robberies continues to occur (utter nonsense; of course he knows exactly why the robberies continue to occur), he did manage to provide the answer while pretending to be clueless.

As reported by NewsBusters on Saturday, here’s Ramsey in all his dishonest glory (emphasis, mine):

“Many of the young people we arrested had no previous criminal records. And why they were getting involved in something like this I have no idea . . . So I don’t know what’s driving this.”

OK, fine. And?

“The punishment for this kind of crime is very, very minimal. [We know.] In most cases, it’s a misdemeanor. [Yeah, we know that. as well.]

“There are some DAs that have flat-out said they’re no longer going to prosecute shoplifting.” [Hmm. You think that might have something to do with the problem, genius?]

This guy is completely full of crap.
