Violence is spiking in Houston during the coronavirus pandemic, according to Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo.

Following a shooting that left a woman who was seven months pregnant dead in the city, Acevedo pinned some blame on the coronavirus for a recent uptick in crime.

The article goes on to state the following:

“The last few months have been a time frame of just some unprecedented violence,” Acevedo said during a press conference on Wednesday. “Put up some prayers for these evil series of events that are going on in our city.”

Acevedo also exploded in anger on Saturday, after a 38-year-old career criminal who had been arrested nearly 70 times fatally stabbed an 80-year-old grandmother while she was out shopping.

“We’ve had a 50 percent increase in murders this year,” he announced in a fiery press briefing.

“Over 100 people have been murdered in some very violent crimes this year. Where’s the outrage when we are chasing the same crooks out here? Where’s the outrage when our cops are putting their lives on the line arresting the same person time and again who have a violent history?” He blasted the judges who keep letting these crooks out on the street over and over.

“I’m not going away, they’re not going to shut me up!” he declared.

“We all need to speak up and pay attention. Too many Harris County criminal court judges and magistrates are coddling criminals and placing our communities and cops at risk. We will be bringing transparency to our court system to insure our community knows who the judges are,” Acevedo said in a Twitter post, while sharing a video of his fiery outburst.

“Our hearts go out to the Cook family and to all am who knew and loved this sweet woman. May she Rest In Peace and may we all work to address the broken criminal justice system in Harris County is bent on coddling violent criminals. We deserve better,” Acevedo said.
