3:04 pm
washington dc police chief sounding the alarm about the rise in violent crime saying he is "mad as hell as shooting wanted to people on thursday. one of several terrifying and blood he recent inch - - incidents we continue our team coverage from washington. >> the dc police chief fired up talking to reporters in a trendy upscale neighborhood where gunfire corrupted sending people scrambling for cover. she wants to put criminals away and not see them away for a long time. >> why is the guy who murdered somebody is in the community after being arrested two or three months prior with a firearm? what we think he's going to do? that recidivism rate is the highest we have seen anywhere. 87 percent. >> just last month the mayor said she wants to cut funding for police now she wants the
3:05 pm
department use any overtime necessary to stop the surging crime. the federal government bears some responsibility because they run the courts which are not operating at full capacity "as of june 2021, 10199 criminal cases pending what does that lag mean? more people arrested and then immediately release. dc police post this video showing two suspects in the getaway car and witnesses call it a war zone. it is complain that violent criminals are not staying locked up. >> this breaks my heart spent the surging crime not limited to the nation's capital there have been more than 4000 murders and 73 cities this year up more than 15 percent from this time one year ago as
3:06 pm
if the job wasn't tough enough he said there's 200 police officers sure and expects the number to grow. jon: sobering statistics. thank you. masks are making a comeback even for vaccinated americans. st. louis is the latest to mandate masks indoors regardless of vaccination status going against cdc guidance as southern governors band together in a push to get residents vaccinated. the cdc says vaccinations are up 37 percent from last week although the hospitalization numbers are the lowest overall since last august. we are live in atlanta with more. reporter: it's all a little confusing. for those mask wearing indoors for those who run vaccinated but a lot of local officials are telling people to put the
3:07 pm
mask back on regardless of vaccination status. doctor fauci says he understands why these decisions are being made contrary to cdc guidance. >> individual situations with the level of infection is so high and a level in the community of vaccination may be low is quite understandable why local authorities are now saying it's good that you are vaccinated but in a situation with people indoors if it is crowded you should wear a mask. >> the resurgence of mask mandates popping up all over as a delta variant tightens its grips now they are mandating everybody over the age of five wear a mask regardless of status and counties in california, georgia nevada and the wheezing in a are taking similar measures at least six state say they will require students and staff to mask up when kids go back to the
3:08 pm
classroom regardless of vaccination status. atlanta, chicago and washington dc say they will require all students and staff to recruit - - wear masks arizona and arkansas and texas all have laws or executive orders in place to be in schools from forcing masks to be worn and in the south were the vaccination rates are among the lowest some governors have a renewed push to get more people vaccinated particularly in the wheezing and aware hospitalizations are up with new covid infections to be reported since monday. >> what if you choose not to be vaccinated? i can assure you the numbers that we just went through you run an unreasonable risk of becoming infected, getting sick and going into the hospital and dying.
3:09 pm
>> it could be an uphill battle for states to get vaccinated according to a new poll most americans who have not been vaccinated yet are not planning to do so. jon: charles watson from atlanta. thank you. they made headlines after boarding a private jet without a mask and half a dozen apparently contracted covid-19. now texas democrat state legislators that defected to dc to block the passage of a voting law are expressing some frustration with president biden although they have met with high-ranking democrats including vice president harrison they have yet to speak with the big guy himself about their concerns and state senator reportedly told the congressman he won't meet with us on zoom like this i'm trying to be tactful but i don't know how else to say it i am just test off he doesn't give us the respect the way
3:10 pm
you have. and with the house armed services foreign affairs committee the texas state legislators were trying to make a point trying to block the republican blocked - - back voting change what you think of their methodology and the results of their trip quick. >> it didn't turn out the way they wanted it to they were pitching themselves as martyrs and he rose coming up period to make changes and in the process completely pushing off their duty to the constituents and texas. personally they have embarrassed themselves anything president biden and the white house sees it as an embarrassment so this hasn't turned out the way they wanted it to. jon: beta or board gave them $600,000 toward their
3:11 pm
venture. >> yes. he continues to raise money for them and their vacation in dc and just spending time quarantined in hotel rooms it is a real embarrassment in a colossal waste of money they need to be doing the people's work in texas there work is not in dc but in austin but they need to take care of business the texas taxpayers and constituents that they represent have put them in office to do that and they need to do that. jon: it might want to stay quarantined because dc has been violent lately there was the shooting on the packed thoroughfare we had video that earlier so what's going on in washington and the whole country right now? >> it is the same thing is all over the country. it is a result of what the democrats started off acutely there still doing it to be
3:12 pm
honest with the cycle coming into 2020. i think they lost seats and they came close to losing some seats because of their defined the police rhetoric that's what we have. attacking police officers and police departments for months and months we have prosecutors in the blue states and cities that will prosecute crimes and this is the result. if you let crime run rampant criminals get involved it found its way into dc just like other large cities around the country i'm encouraged by the new dc chief of police this man might make a difference is not afraid to speak his mind he seems to be genuinely concerned about the safety of people in washington dc so we'll see what happens. jon: he needs 200 more officers and when you defined the police it is hard to hire numbers like that that people are noticing when asked in the
3:13 pm
latest fox news polar compared to one year ago is there more or less crime in the country? 73 percent said yes but then in your local area 54 percent said yes crime is up. is all of that on defined the police? or is it sometimes a wave of crime hits because former juvenile delinquents are getting older? >> it's not that it's 100 percent related to the democrats and their approach they completely ignore misdemeanor crimes you cannot even write on the metro in the dc area without seeing hordes of young people jumping the turnstile nobody tries to stop them legibly stand there nobody tries to stop them there are carjackings, car theft, none of this is
3:14 pm
prosecuted or pursued. one thing leads to another. and they are emboldened is directly related to that. jon: it might not be popular to spend money on police these days but nancy pelosi does want to get an infrastructure bill passed here's what she had to say on waiting for the senate to pass its bill first. >> it is important for us to pass the bipartisan infrastructure bill i repeat that we are eager for it to pass we will not take it up until it passes the reconciliation. >> we she wants the senate to pass their bills first and apparently she wants the bipartisan relatively small bill, a couple of trillion dollars that involves
3:15 pm
repairing roads and bridges but then the senate she wants them to use the budget reconciliation laws to pass free childcare and a bunch of other things without wishlist bill that it's much larger than the infrastructure bill that the republicans are supporting. >> she is holding the senate hostage or trying to but the senate has done the right thing they put the infrastructure stuff that represents true infrastructure like roads and bridges and airports broadband, things that we can all agree on that represents true infrastructure on both sides of the aisle that we need to address they have broken that out. it has a high probability of passing because it will have bipartisan support. that she will not lead us bring it and tell they go back and pass a three.5 trillion-dollar
3:16 pm
reconciliation bill in the senate that's full of nothing but a liberal wishlist. universal child care and the green new deal and the wasteful projects the far left has made it their effort to push through. basically she says unless the senate pushes through their wishlist of the far left they will not let the american people vote on infrastructure and that's what's going on. jon: congressman jackson from texas, thank you. the justice department says it will not investigate whether new york governor cuomo covid-19 policy violated the civil rights of nursing home residents in march 2020 he advised nursing homes to admit patients who had covid-19. the doj believe that might have led to the deaths of thousands of elderly residents they also decided not to open

3:35 pm
and 5 percent with no opinion. biden's approval rating is showing the first signs of meaningful decline if the lower ratings persisted could indicate the honeymoon period is over. six months and white house has been focused on the pad pandemic the domestic agenda is in the hands of congress with the infrastructure spending in the decision to spend three.$5 trillion expanding social programs. that will be up to congress and would have an impact on the presidents ratings as well to keep the majority in the midterm election. jon: two people injured in a shooting in washington dc in a restaurant packed with patrons. the dc police chief criticize the justice system while meeting with residents yesterday at the side of the

abandon the police tactics leading to a 40 year decline in the crime rate around the country. jon: defined the police movement was fairly popular on the left with many candidates they are largely silent. a three word to slogan you don't hear much about anymore. how come? >> the voters don't like it and it doesn't work. make no mistake they haven't stopped talking about it they just off using the words. minneapolis will have a charter amendment to vote on where the question is should the police department be abolished with the department of public safety to use tactics for public health? when the bullets are flying i don't want someone to rollup
3:38 pm
to control the situation. jon: the leftist policies to demonize polices that a factor in violent crime? cincinnati mayor try to blame on the early closing of bars during the pandemic although though they are careful before shooting anyone those in law enforcement say it has more to do with leftist policies to demonize cops and limit proactive targeted policing. what is proactive policing? >> you look for the hotspots.

3:47 pm
an opioid crisis with a record number of americans with a 30 percent jump drug overdoses in 2020 from 2019. those are the things the president doesn't spend a lot of time talking about. >> he knows they are losing issues for him. it is something every night we see not just in the bad places but in washington just blocks from the white house brazen shootings happening at a ritzy restaurant or a nationals game or we see in atlanta new york and chicago mentioning portland earlier these are very real problems and the president isn't talking about the true reason around that so
3:48 pm
the fact they are retiring in record number. and during the summer of love with the mostly peaceful protest the president did not address it until the end of the summer when the polling started to come back the american public doesn't have a lot of confidence the president is tackling this particular issue that's what they are feeling just like inflation it should have been the top story at the townhall and instead it was silence of the lambs. jon: the president did not meet the vaccination goals but we also don't know how many people at the white house have come down with covid listen to this exchange. >> . >> this administration with
