This morning I ran across a post on B-ARFCOM from “tracksar55” on the rising crime rate in progressive Utopias.
“Democrat-run Chicago: arrests/stops are down 53 percent, murders are up 65 percent.
Democrat-run New York City: arrests/stops are down 38 percent, murders are up 58 percent.
Democrat-run Louisville: arrests/stops are down 35 percent, murders are up 87 (not a typo) percent.
Democrat-run Minneapolis: arrests/stops are down 42 percent, murders are up 64 percent.
Democrat-run Los Angeles: arrests/stops are down 33 percent, murders are up 51 percent.
Democrat-run St. Louis is now “America’s Murder Capitol.” In 2020, the murder rate hit “a 50-year high, with 87 out of every 100,000 residents being murdered.” You are now three times more likely to be murdered in St. Louis than in Mexico.
In Democrat-run Portland, the study says after the policing budget was slashed by $12 million and three police units were eliminated, “shootings climbed 173 percent [not a typo] percent and murders rose 255 percent [not a typo].”
