Does cutting cops make a difference?

Harry Jaffe thinks so. In a column this week in the Washington Examiner he writes:

Robberies are up. Burglaries are on the rise. Car theft is in vogue. Summer in Washington brings heat and humidity that makes everyone a bit more crazy. Crime will spike. Trust me… It’s not that there are fewer guns, just fewer cops to find and recover the ones on the street — which might have been used to kill the six victims gunned down last week.

What do you think?
