Homicides Are UP!?

Homicides in the United States went up by more than 10 percent in 2015 over the year before, while violent crime increased by nearly 4 percent in the same period, according to new statistics released Monday by the FBI.

All told, the country reported its highest estimated violent crime rate in three years, and while these numbers are far below those seen one or two decades earlier, they mark a sharp increase following two years of declines, the FBI’s summary of crime figures showed.

WTF?  Between the conservative agenda (a record number of CCW/Constitutional Carry States) and the liberal agenda (fallout from the Obama presidency) one would think murder would have been eradicated by now!  😛

Of course, if progressively-run metro areas (like Chicago, Detroit, Washington D.C., New York City) with their oppressive gun-control laws are factored out, as well as Black-on-Black and gang crime, I’d bet the numbers are even lower!

AH!  Statistics!

  1. But if you eliminate Chicago & Washington DC, homicides are down sharply everywhere else.

  2. “But if you eliminate Chicago & Washington DC” would you then consider that a job well done?

  3. It’s the Ferguson effect. No cop in his right mind wants to go into a situation that will get him raked over the coals, attacked by the press and all the rest that happens if something sets off the riots. They back off and won’t go into some areas. “It was over before we got there”; they respond really slowly. And they get killed or get beat nearly to death, like yesterday.
