The following should be a statistical improbability, but it is a statistic that is often repeated in cities like Chicago, Detroit, Flint, Baltimore, Oakland, Compton-Watts, New York, etc. Of the 77 people shot over the weekend in Chicago, all were black or African-American, none of the known shooters were white and none were shot by police.
What can we deduce from this relatively common occurrence? (a) There is systemic racism among police. (b) Black lives don’t matter. (c) It’s time to defund the police. (d) More social service workers are needed. (e) Cities run by democrats are the worst for violence and corruption.
If you answered anything but b and e, you would be wrong.
Meanwhile in New York, the black on black homicide rate for June is up 200%, that would be a 3 fold increase. Overall, the city’s homicide rate has reached a five-year high with the number of shootings increasing 42 percent from a year ago, city police Commissioner Dermot Shea said Thursday.
Shea blamed a combination of a justice system which has been suppressed in producing criminal indictments; a deteriorated social safety net, which he claims is sending released prisoners into homelessness; bail reform laws that eliminate bail for most misdemeanor and “nonviolent” felonies; and case deferments, WNBC in New York reported.
“We cannot keep people safe without keeping bad, dangerous, people off the streets,” he said. “You have a criminal justice system that’s imploding. That’s the kindest way to put it.” California voters were duped into similar so-call criminal justice reforms that released many habitual offenders back into society and this has had similar results.
Now, lets take a quick look at how democrat control has worked for San Francisco: S. F. crime statistics report an overall upward trend in crime based on data from 17 years with violent crime increasing and property crime increasing. Based on this trend, the crime rate in San Francisco for 2020 is expected to be higher than in 2016.
The city violent crime rate for San Francisco in 2016 was higher than the national violent crime rate average by 78.95% and the city property crime rate in San Francisco was higher than the national property crime rate average by 122.03%.
In 2016 the city violent crime rate in San Francisco was higher than the violent crime rate in California by 59.55% and the city property crime rate in San Francisco was higher than the property crime rate in California by 113.13%.
The chance of becoming a victim of either violent or property crime in Compton is 1 in 26. Based on FBI crime data. Relative to California, Compton has a crime rate that is higher than 89% of the state’s cities and towns of all sizes. Yes, of course Compton, like Chicago, is run by democrats, haven’t you been paying attention?
