Murder Rates Rose in a Quarter of the Nation’s 100 Largest Cities


Murder rates rose significantly in 25 of the nation’s 100 largest cities last year, according to an analysis by The New York Times of new data compiled from individual police departments.
 

The findings confirm a trend that was tracked recently in a study published by the National Institute of Justice. “The homicide increase in the nation’s large cities was real and nearly unprecedented,” wrote the study’s author, Richard Rosenfeld, a criminology professor at the University of Missouri-St. Louis who explored homicide data in 56 large American cities.

In the Times analysis, half of the increase came from just seven cities — Baltimore, Chicago, Cleveland, Houston, Milwaukee, Nashville and Washington.

Stir up racism, divide the people, encourage hate. This is how it's done, and this is the result. January 20th can't come soon enough.

Black on Black Murders led the way. Ahh anybody know where Black Lives Matter is on this issue. BLM is an embarrassment to the black race.
