THE UNZ REVIEW — So, the second half of 2019 was shootier than the second half of 2018, which was likely the least homicidal year nationally since BLM emerged at Ferguson. The first two months of the pandemic, March and April 2020, were pretty ho-hum at around 30 medical care-requiring shooting incidents per million, but then went up to c. 35 in May and c. 45 in June and shootings stayed very high until the weather cooled off after the election. But in 2021, June was even worse than June 2020.
It would be interesting to see data by week for May 2020 to see whether blacks didn’t get so much more shooty until the last week of the month after the death of George Floyd, or whether the trend took off earlier in the month, perhaps due to all the media agitation over Ahmaud Arbery?
