In 2022, we learned that 27 of the top 30 cities with the highest murder rates were run by Democratic mayors The exception was Lexington, Kentucky, and Jacksonville, Florida, which are run by Republican mayors, and Las Vegas, which has an independent mayor.
In the meantime, we give $100,000 billion to Ukraine for money laundering.
Half of those 30 cities with the highest murder rates had George Soros-backed rogue prosecutors, including:
“There were 2,554 homicides in those 30 cities through June 2022, reported The Heritage Foundation’s “The Blue City Murder Problem” study. In the cities with Soros-backed rogue prosecutors, there were 1,752 homicides, representing 68% of homicides in the 30 top homicide cities in the United States” just in the first six months, the report said.
This is not a new phenomenon. In 2021, cities that broke all-time murder records were Albuquerque, NM, Atlanta, GA, Austin, TX, Baton Rouge, LA, Columbus, OH, Indianapolis, IN, Jackson, MS, Louisville, KY, Macon, GA, Milwaukee, WI, New Haven, CT, Philadelphia, PA, Portland, OR, Rochester, NY, St. Paul, MN, and Tucson, AZ. All these cities have one thing in common, Democrat mayors.
Other cities that have near record-breaking homicide rates included Greensboro, NC, Houston, TX, Memphis TN, and Oakland, CA. Democrat-run cities all.
Many other Democrat-run cities broke the previous (2020) year’s murder rate, including Chicago, which had 661 murders in 2020 and already has 799 murders as of December 27th. Unbelievably, that was not a record.
Philadelphia (with a Democrat mayor) recorded more homicides in 2021 than America’s two largest cities combined (New York City and Los Angeles).
Besides Democratic leadership, there are five other key factors that contribute to an area’s crime rate.
1. Violent Crime Rates
Violent crime includes murder, nonnegligent manslaughter, aggravated assault, forcible rape, and robbery. If convicted of a violent crime, the person will spend over five years in prison. Violent crime physically and emotionally scars the victims of the crime, often requiring the victim to spend years in therapy recovering from the effects of the crime.
On average, there are 382 violent crimes per 100,000 people in the United States. The FBI Crime Reports break down the United States’ violent crime rate into four categories.
2. Property Crime Rates
Property crime includes burglary, theft, and car theft. Although property crimes can be stressful for the victims, the FBI doesn’t consider them nearly as severe as violent crimes. The penalty for property crime conviction varies from several months in jail to several years.
On average, the FBI reports 2,199 property crimes per 100,000 people. There are three categories of property crime that affect an area’s safety rankings.
3. Unemployment Rate
In many areas, high unemployment rates correspond to high crime rates. The US unemployment rate has been rising primarily due to Biden-Democrat politics and the illegal alien invasion events.
4. Poverty Rate
The Bureau of Justice Statistics report found connections between poverty rates and higher instances of violent crime.
The report states, “Persons in poor households at or below the Federal Poverty Level (FPL) (39.8 per 1,000) had more than double the rate of violent victimization as persons in high-income households (16.9 per 1,000).” The average poverty rate in the United States, as of January 2023 is 12.8 percent, almost double of when President Donald Trump was in office.
5. Median Income
The median income of an area can influence crime rates. If the average household income is low, it’s more likely that the area will have high crime rates. Low-income areas are more likely to see gun crime, motor vehicle theft, and robbery. The median income in the United States is $79,212 (as of Jan. 2023).
