And in the end, they will lose and we will win. I’ve done it before, and I will do it again. Will you vote for me a third time to be the 47th President of the United States? » the message requested.
Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody offered a candid insight into the appeal of the Sunshine State.
“What is the secret in Florida? Why do all New Yorkers and Californians come to your great state? ” asked Sean Dufyguest anchor for “Sunday Morning Futures” on Fox Business.
“It’s not rocket science, Sean. I mean, people are watching and they understand that leadership is important. We don’t just watch things break down or things not go well. We are doing something about it. When we saw people disrespecting the cops and other people defunding their police, we gave them raises. When we saw a rash of people rushing into a store and committing mass thefts, we did something about it. We made it easier to prosecute these people,” Ms Moody replied.
“When we look at what’s happening in the country with crime, everyone wants to be innovators with cashless bail and rethink sentencing laws. And the result of that has been spikes in crime across the country. You are the best cop in Florida. What has been your philosophy on crime and how do you keep your state safe? Mr. Duffy then asked.
“I’m not just the attorney general. I’m a former federal prosecutor, judge for over a decade. I’m married to a cop. It’s not hard to imagine that if you fail and refuse to enforce the laws on the books – and that includes both felonies and your bail statuses – you’ll see an increase in crime. Recent statistics released by the FBI show that where people increase police funding, crime decreases; where they have decreased police funding, crime increases,” Ms Moody replied.
“It’s very simple. In Florida, we respect our cops. We give them the tools they need. … Florida, nation – be aware. If you move here, Florida is a law and order state. order. So if you’re a felon and you live in Florida, you might want to get out,” she added.
