‘There is no Modern Precedent’: American Murder Rate Soars 30% in 2020

By Tyler Durden | 7 February 2021

ZERO HEDGE — Many Americans probably aren’t surprised to learn that 2020 was one of the most violent years in recent memory, a solid break with the decades-long trend of lower national crime rates (with certain stubborn exceptions among bombed out rust-belt cities … and Baltimore). In addition to BLM marches across the nation that enabled waves of looting, along with more than a dozen killed, 2020 was, generally speaking, a year of unrest as millions of Americans, trapped inside their own homes, lashed out.

A wave of headlines warning about the spike in crime has now been confirmed: US murder rates saw a “historic” increase in 2020 vs. 2019, with more than 1.2K additional killings year-over-year in a sample of 34 American cities, the biggest being NYC, the smallest being Norfolk, Va.

Keep in mind, this isn’t the official FBI report on crime data, which will no doubt include a fair bit of “massaging”, as government reports like these often do. The report, cited by Fox News and others, was published by the National Commission of COVID-19 and Criminal Justice (NCCCJ), a non-profit group created in July of last year that includes former AG Loretta Lynch as a co-chair. […]

    • >This is an unprecedented social disaster …

      Not really — nearly all of the (additional) victims, as well as the perpetrators, are criminal ghetto Blacks whose deaths are not a “social disaster” — of course this does not fit all of the additional victims; their deaths are a tragedy — but if you’re talking about a significant year over year increase, then you’re talking about the usual victims and the usual perpetrators: per UCR/FBI crime stats, every year black males, who are approx 4% of the population (if that), commit 55% of all homicides.

      The real “social disaster” is how so many core urban areas in America have been decimated by black dysfunction and criminality — large swathes of cities like Detroit, Baltimore, St Louis, etc look like parts of a country that lost a war and never rebuilt — whereas in e.g. Europe these city centers are full of cultural and entertainment venues, as well as prized (and pricey) residential areas.

  1. Until Donald Trump’s Presidency, Democrat Party Leadership routinely early released mass numbers of convicted felons from prison (released the Wolves on US), and now under JOETUS, they want to invite more felons to cross our borders and to take away our 2nd Amendment Right to Keep & Bear Arms (with emphasis on our guns at home to protect ourselves from the attacking Wolves). Would love to see Judicial Watch do a full-blown investigation on who and how many House Members have firearm permits to carry (concealed, open, and/or at home, and publicly report JW’s findings. They all have House Security (necessary for all, agreed), but We The People don’t: its JustUS now.

    Its’ now as if 4 Felonies in California will land an early-released ex-con a free honorary Masters’ Degree in Criminal Justice or in Child Protective Services in some California Counties. Remember when Gavinor Nuisance (during 2016 Presidential Campaigns) was asked by media how he felt about illegal drugs like heroin, cocaine, and more! He replied something like, “All drugs should be legal. People should be able to do with their own bodies what they want…”

    Like Mexico’s former Pretty Boy President Pena Nieto, the Cartels must love Nuisance. Minus the beard and mustache, Character Harry Ellis in the film DIE HARD is a fitting reminder of Nuisance, California’s Democrat Party Nepotism at its best in Sacramento, as always.
