Homicide Spike Hits Most Large U.S. Cities

A sharp rise in homicides this year is hitting large U.S. cities across the country, signaling a new public-safety risk unleashed during the coronavirus pandemic, and amid recession and a national backlash against police tactics. The murder rate is still low compared with previous decades, and other types of serious crime have dropped in the past few months.

They left out the part about the murder spikes being in dimwit run cities. They were already high murder cities to begin with. It’s truly hard to believe that mayors like Lucas and baby groot in Chicago have done nothing and say nothing about it, they refuse to admit who the problem is, why is that?

Joe clark wouldn’t be afraid to tackle this problem, why can’t bald man bad be more like him when it comes to his people?

Of course, the "spike" in homicides isn't in all the parts of cities across the country, just like it's not taking place all across the KC metro.
The vast majority of murders take place in very particular parts of KCMO and are perpetrated by a minority of a minority of the population.
Until that FACT is acknowledged by people in positions of responsibility who have the ability to at least try to reduce the violence, nothing will continue to improve.
Which is a real shame for the good folks who live in those stressed neighborhoods.
The results of the recent efforts by the feds in KCMO with Operation Legend shows what can be done.

Murder spike? Of course, when you let the rioters and terrorists run the city then let them out of jail and kneel to them. What the hell did anyone expect?

The murder spike is happening in the communities of color. This was absolutely going to happen after the protest and riots. Politicians, prosecutors and pussies began their fight against rules and police. In an attempt to protect themselves and their families police were always going to pull back out of the areas where violent crime is most prevalent.

The people suffering are the poor and the communities of color. White protestors don’t live in those neighborhoods. They never will, they also protest against gentrification. This cycle has happened for decades in cities all over the country. Public servants work for less money to earn a comfortable pension, risking it just isn’t a good business decision.

Same thing happened after Ferguson riots.

Blame anything but the left wing agitation and logical pull back by the police.

Even saying "All lives matter" will get you whooped or worse.

Democrats own this. Just like they owned slaves.

And no, the party switch is a lie because Al Gore joined his daddy's racist party and Wilson & FDR are still openly declared as progressives. With FDR held up on lofty heights by the left and Wilson's eugenics the model for national socialist Germany.

WTF you on about? Q dutifully gives KCPD $$270000000 every year to do their job, which they are incapable of doing. Waste of far more money than 18th Vine & bike lanes & streetcars put together.

Kcpd can't get crimes prosecuted. That's the Democrat party's decision. They can't get witnesses to come to trial. The Democrat party controls who gets a subpoena to show.

You're blaming the wrong part of government, 8:05

Dude, I’ve read some of your stuff on here about the hate for the old... you were no doubt molested as a child, and have harbored the resentment... I would say let’s meet at the YMCA steam room and we can talk about it.

Chimptard, we know you're resentful because your family line of tree dwelling bipeds is nearing extinction. Well, you had a good run, even learning how to type. Now, get your banana and back into the tree.
