Why are murders skyrocketing in US cities?


Two articles are reporting about the skyrocketing homicide rates in several US cities in 2021. The cities impacted have two common denominators.

Breitbart reports they are Democrat-run:

CNN admits a crime wave which was evident in 2020 is continuing in 2021 in Democrat-run cities like Chicago, Los Angeles, New York City, and others.

According to CNN, Chicago “homicides are up 33 percent in the first three months of the year compared to 2020.” Homicides in NYC were “jumped by nearly 14 percent through March 28” of this year and L.A. homicides rose almost 36 percent through March 30, 2021.

Moreover, the death and mayhem currently afoot in Chicago, N.Y.C., and L.A., comes on the heels of a 2020 in which all three cities “saw significant increases” in homicides over 2019.

Fox News points out that they are also part of the ‘defund police’ movement:

Cities in parts of the U.S. that slashed their police department funding last year, in part as a result of police-involved shootings, have seen an uptick in certain crimes over the past year, according to data analyzed by Fox News

Cities such as Los AngelesMinneapolisNew York City, Portland, Ore., and Austin, Texas, have shifted funds from police departments to social services programs. Such cuts have led some departments to lay off officers, cancel recruiting classes or retreat from hiring goals.

As police departments were left to make do with shrunken budgets and less support, some big cities have seen sometimes drastic upticks in murders and other violent crimes, a Fox News crime analysis found.
