As more American big cities come under the sway of George Soros-funded, Democrat “prosecutors” who won’t prosecute criminals, the murder rate has soared in every single locale.
Every single one of these cities are thoroughly infested by Democrat Politicians. Indeed, not a one of them are run by Republicans, nor have any appreciable GOP presence in them.
Per the New York Post:
The murder rates in major US Cities have soared more than 10% in the past two years — with most homicides occurring in Democratic areas with soft-on-crime policies.
In a study released by WalletHub Wednesday, researchers found that Memphis, Tennessee; New Orleans, Louisiana; Richmond, Virginia; Washington, DC; and Detroit, Michigan are suffering from the biggest homicide rate problems.
All five cities are led by left-wing mayors.
After comparing the rise in murder rates in 45 of the country’s most populated cities between 2021 and 2023, scholars noticed that killings were rising faster in Democrat-led cities than in their Republican counterparts.
Though the Covid-19 pandemic can be blamed for the initial jump in homicides, scholars theorized that soft-on-crime policing has exacerbated the issue in progressive cities.
The worst ten cities in murders per capita are:
New Orleans, LA
Las Vegas, NV
Kansas City, MO
