San Antonio Violence Report 4-7-2024

Blue Light On A Police Car

This is a list of the shootings that occurred in San Antonio and Bexar County between March 30 and April 7, 2024. This is a result of three factors: a liberal District Attorney who does not prosecute or punish crime to the fullest, liberal city and county politicians who bend to the will of leftist community leaders, law enforcement officers who are prevented from being proactive in preventing and fighting crime, and a local liberal news media that feeds the anti-police narrative. All of this has resulted in weekly carnage of shootings.

When petty crime and violence are tolerated and excused, it leads to bigger and worse crime and violence.
