Nickel causes Raleigh’s rising crime

September 7, 2023

Following national trends, violent crime in Raleigh is soaring.

WRAL reports, “Crime has gotten so bad in downtown Raleigh that the city plans to hire private security to help police patrol parts of the city.”

Wiley Nickel hasn’t helped at all. Nickel voted against increased penalties for drug-related charges and against increased penalties for gang-related crime.

“Violent crime in Raleigh is soaring and Wiley Nickel is part of the problem. His extreme soft-on-crime policies are focused on defunding the police and making Raleigh communities less safe.” – NRCC Spokeswoman Delanie Bomar
