Murder is at an all-time high in a DOZEN major American cities...
· Dec 9, 2021 ·

Only a person living under a rock would be baffled at the trend of murder sprees recently, and our "expert" class is 100% baffled:

At least 12 major U.S. cities have broken annual homicide records in 2021 -- and there's still three weeks to go in the year.

Of the dozen cities that have already surpassed the grim milestones for killings, five topped records that were set or tied just last year.

"It's terrible to every morning get up and have to go look at the numbers and then look at the news and see the stories. It's just crazy. It's just crazy and this needs to stop," Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney said after his city surpassed its annual homicide record of 500, which stood since 1990.

This is horrible.

Look at how this former FBA Assistant Director and current NBC pundit tries to spin it though:

Correlation doesn't equal causation, you federal bozo.

The people shooting up Chicago with machine guns loaded with drum mags aren't going to the local gun shop owner to legally equip themselves.

Only someone who thoroughly hates the Second Amendment and the inalienable right of self-defense (read: former FBI directors) would try to connect the dots in such a dishonest way. The data of legal guns used in crimes simply does not bear out this argument.

The reason people are buying more legal guns is because there is more crime, not the other way around!

So what other cities besides Philly are on the list?

Other major cities that have surpassed yearly homicide records are St. Paul, Minnesota; Portland, Oregon; Tucson, Arizona; Toledo, Ohio; Baton Rouge, Louisiana; Austin, Texas; Rochester, New York; and Albuquerque, New Mexico, which broke its record back in August.


Among the major cities on the brink of setting new homicide records are Milwaukee, which has 178 homicides, 12 short of a record set in 2020; and Minneapolis, which has 91 homicides, six shy of a record set in 1995.

It's interesting, because most of these cities are deep-blue leftist enclaves and have been for generations. Why would homicide be going up in places where gun control, social welfare, and "equity" has been extensively implemented??

As for the city crowned Homicide Central, that honor goes to Chiraq:

Chicago, the nation's third-largest city, leads the nation with 739 homicides as of the end of November, up 3% from 2020, according to Chicago Police Department crime data. Chicago's deadliest year remains 1970 when there were 974 homicides.

That death toll matches some warzones. Insane!

As I mentioned, the experts are baffled.

Experts say there are a number of reasons possibly connected to the jump in homicides, including strained law enforcement staffing, a pronounced decline in arrests and continuing hardships from the pandemic, but that there is no clear answer across the board.

This might be part of it:

"Nobody's getting arrested anymore," [Retired NYC detective chief Robert] Boyce said. "People are getting picked up for gun possession and they're just let out over and over again."

And this:

And this:

Christopher Herrmann, an assistant professor in the Department of Law & Police Science at John Jay College of Criminal Justice in New York City, said the decrease in arrests could be attributed to the large number of police officers who retired or resigned in 2020 and 2021.

I wonder if we've done anything in the last year to make police officers want to retire.

Anyway, pray for America!
