Homicides in 12 Democrat-Run Cities Hit an All-Time High in 2021

Homicides in 12 Democrat-Run Cities Hit an All-Time High in 2021

Many have progressive district attorneys who were backed by George Soros.

Crime in multiple Democrat-run cities is completely out of control and it’s not just smash-and-grab robberies by organized flash mobs.

Murder is up in many cities in record-breaking numbers. One other thing many of these cities have in common is progressive district attorneys who were elected with backing from George Soros.

The left-wing riots in the spring of 2020 began the lawlessness. The moment elected officials started repeating the message of ‘defund the police’ all bets were off and things have only gotten worse.

Bill Hutchinson reports at ABC News:

‘It’s just crazy’: 12 major cities hit all-time homicide records

At least 12 major U.S. cities have broken annual homicide records in 2021 — and there’s still three weeks to go in the year.

Of the dozen cities that have already surpassed the grim milestones for killings, five topped records that were set or tied just last year.

“It’s terrible to every morning get up and have to go look at the numbers and then look at the news and see the stories. It’s just crazy. It’s just crazy and this needs to stop,” Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney said after his city surpassed its annual homicide record of 500, which stood since 1990.

Philadelphia, a city of roughly 1.5 million people, has had more homicides this year (521 as of Dec. 6) than the nation’s two largest cities, New York (443 as of Dec. 5) and Los Angeles (352 as of Nov. 27). That’s an increase of 13% from 2020, a year that nearly broke the 1990 record.

Chicago, the nation’s third-largest city, leads the nation with 739 homicides as of the end of November, up 3% from 2020, according to Chicago Police Department crime data. Chicago’s deadliest year remains 1970 when there were 974 homicides.

Philadelphia’s homicide record was broken in the same week that Columbus, Indianapolis and Louisville eclipsed records for slayings.

Progressive policies have led us here, no matter how Democrats or anyone in the media tries to spin it.

Can you guess what all these cities have in common?


Nothing is going to change until law enforcement officers start enforcing the laws again.

Do not care anymore what happens in democrat KuKu cities. Never go to these no go zones. Wall em off.

“progressive policies”. They are Democrat policies. We on the Right keep offering Democrats a degree of separation they don’t deserve. Democrat voters put these kinds of people in office.

Next headlines from the msm: Illegals from third-world cesspools begin exodus out of the U.S.A. …….many exclaiming, “It’s more dangerous here, among our lefty ‘benefactors,’ than from where we ‘escaped’! See ya!”

My fair town made this list due the mayor’s nonsensical “re-imagining” policing and prosecutors releasing criminals. Consequently, the majority of the extra 100 or so murder victims are black. #MUHBLM

Not surprisingly, the death toll among the denizens of blue cities (who are mostly not registered to vote due to young age, criminal record or inability to sign their own name) has served to increase the democrats’ vote-from-the-grave strategic advantage. It’s no wonder the lefty politicians are encouraging the carnage in their own cities.

Within these cities the numbers are not evenly distributed. There are much higher numbers in some areas than in others. The national murder rate is a fairly meaningless statistic as we don’t live in a national average. We live our lives where we reside. That’s a blessing and a curse. The policies of the d/prog are a failure and have been for some time. Most of us who don’t reside in these areas don’t really care. I certainly don’t care enough about it to do more than disagree with the policies and work to ensure those failed policies aren’t enacted where I live.

Now though, the violence isn’t contained. It’s spilling over to impact the lives of the decision makers and other elites; the murder of a Columbia student near campus, SP 500 Corp warning employees to dress down and avoid public transit among other tactics just to make it to and from work safely. The question becomes how long will the elites and near elites tolerate the results of the failed policies they enacted?

Radical prosecutors , the so called “bail reform laws” and the lack of respect for police are the perfect storm created by the woke agenda

I lived in the Peoples Democratic Republic of Austin back in the late 1980s, and even then it was a crime-infested s***hole.

Wow. Louisville and Indy are the big surprises on that chart, at least for me. I had no idea crime was like that there. 62 murders in Toledo is also kind of a big number. Toledo is not a large city, probably less than 300K people.

    Indy mayor Hogsett and a predominantly black and woke city council just appropriate more money and spend it all on the same failed programs

    A black preacher has tried for years to help get a grip on things, but Hogsett quit taking his calls

    Not too many years ago, it was safe above 16th st. Then 38th st. Now, its spread out everywhere inside Marion county and into the burbs

    WIBC Radio broadcasts from their window studio on the Circle and have watched people get mugged in broad daylight

“Homicides hit at an all time high…”

Yeah, but in a year or so, looking back, it will be said we were looking good in 2021 before homicides went up way, way higher still.

Shared/shifted responsibility? Elective abortions to reduce social per chance personal “burdens”.

There are times I’m thankful to live in a small city in a backwater state that nobody pays much attention to. This is one of those times.

In other crime news, car thefts are up everywhere. In Milwaukee, they’re REALLY up. So, Milwaukee is going to exponentially increase funding to target car thiefs, right? Wrong. They’re suing.

That’s where we are today in urban policing. They have no appetite to put criminals in prison. But, they’re SUPER excited to perhaps sue private enterprise for having the temerity of producing popular cars.
