It turns out that the U.S. is beating Russia in the Ukraine war, at least in terms of murder statistics. We didn't even need a war to do it. Many U.S. cities have seen a higher rate of citizens murdered than the Russian army has managed to kill in the entire country of Ukraine, at least according to a new report from the United Nations.
According to the report, 5,401 civilians have been killed in the Ukraine war. Analysis by the National Desk shows this is a per capita murder rate of 12.9 per 100,000 residents.
According to U.S. data from AH Datalytics from June, there were several U.S. cities that had surpassed this murder rate by quite a jog.
At this point in August, Chicago has passed Ukraine as well with 413 murder victims, giving Chicago a murder rate of 14.9 per 100,000 residents.
Take a victory lap, Mister President. You deserve it.
All sarcasm aside, how have U.S. cities accomplished these jaw-dropping accomplishments?
According to a report from the Law Enforcement Defense fund, 11 out of 14 of the cities that have surpassed the Ukraine murder rate voted for a Soros-funded county prosecutor, and only 54% of homicide cases have been brought to trial.
What's the takeaway?
Only that it's safer to be in a real war zone with bombs dropping out of the sky than a city run by progressive leadership, but I'm sure you knew that already.
