    Nation’s Murder Rate Rose Nearly 9 Percent Last Year, FBI Data Shows
    by Pete Williams


    WASHINGTON — The nation's violent crime rate rose again in 2016, with murder up sharply, according to data released Monday by the FBI.

    ==========================================================================

    http://time.com/4651122/homicides-increase-cities-2016/

    Violent Crime Is On the Rise in U.S. Cities

    According to the Major Cities Chiefs Association, which collected data from 61 metropolitan police agencies, U.S. cities saw 6,407 homicides in 2016, an 11% increase from the year before. Dallas, Las Vegas, Louisville, Memphis, Phoenix and San Jose all saw rises in killings last year, as did some smaller cities that typically have very low murder rates.

    Rising violence in 2015 driven by increase in murders of black men and gun crime, as experts brace for political ‘hysteria’ amid 2016 election

    https://fivethirtyeight.com/features/u-s-cities-experienced-another-big-rise-in-murder-in-2016/

    U.S. Cities Experienced Another Big Rise In Murder In 2016

    The big cities experienced roughly a 11.3 percent increase in murder in 2016, which is down from the same group’s 14.8 percent increase from 2014 to 2015. Still, the figures suggest that big cities have seen murder rise by more than a quarter in just two years

    Chicago has gotten the headlines, and the Windy City’s 59 percent increase

    increases of 56 percent in Memphis

    61 percent in San Antonio

    44 percent in Louisville

    36 percent in Phoenix

    31 percent in Las Vegas

    In all there were six big cities — Louisville, Kentucky; Memphis, Tennessee; Anchorage, Alaska; Fort Wayne, Indiana; Durham, North Carolina; and Indianapolis — that appear to have set records for highest murder counts in one year dating back to 1960.

    ">3
    There were also at least 16 big cities that tied or surpassed their worst murder years since the start of 2000 in 2016.

    The 2016 murder capital of the U.S.

    St. Louis likely remained the national murder capital of the United States based on murder rate, with nearly 60 murders per 100,000 residents. St. Louis has had the country’s highest murder rate each year since 2014. Baltimore likely had the country’s second-highest murder rate for the second-consecutive year with roughly 52 murders per 100,000 residents, with Detroit, New Orleans and Cleveland probably rounding out the top five.

    Not many murders in my state. Perhaps we need to ban africans in cities. Perhaps we need send them all to Kommiefornia then build a wall

    Black Lives Matter May Be a Cause for Our Nation’s Rising Homicide Rates

    By Ron Martinelli, Ph.D., CMI-V

    St. Louis, MO, is now the nation’s most dangerous city, with nearly 60 murders per 100,000 population. This figure represents an 18% increase in per capita in homicides from 2014, as well as an astronomical 490% increase in killings over the state average of 10 murders for every 100,000 citizens. In essence, you are safer as a military combatant clearing ISIS strongholds in Iraq, than you would be walking the mean streets of St. Louis, Missouri.

    Your top ten most violent cities for 2015 are in descending order: Baltimore with an amazing 71% increase and 60 murders per 100,000, followed by Detroit at 44, New Orleans at 42, Birmingham, AL with 37 and a 48% increase; Jackson, MS with 31; Baton Rouge at 26; Hartford, CT at 26 with a 73% increase, Salinas at 25, Milwaukee with 24 and Washington, DC at 24 killings per 100,000 and a 50% increase over its 2014 murder rate.

    Why is this?

    Well, as a criminologist, that’s what I want to know. Socio-criminally, I will tell you that the vast majority of violent crimes stem from deeper cause and effect factors such as severe poverty, lack of parenting, a lack of resonance in education and development of meaningful job skills, alcohol/drug abuse and sales, gang activity and illegal alien crime. These have been historic problems within the inner city and minority communities. Let’s face it. Not a lot of people are being bumped off in Beverly Hills, CA, or out in The Hampton’s.

    Well, it appears as if the Marxist, militant anti-police, anti-government organization Black Lives Matter is in part playing a role in the significant rise in our nation’s homicide rate. How so? Well for one thing, the radical efforts of the BLM through community and political pressure and meddling negatively impact the physical and psychological well-being of law enforcement officers patrolling the mean streets of cities such as St. Louis, MO, Baltimore, Hartford, Washington, DC, Milwaukee, and even small Salinas, CA.

    As a retired detective and a crime researcher, I can attest that being a cop in the U.S. is one of the most dangerous, physically and mentally challenging, unappreciated and low-paying jobs in the nation. Ever since the false narrative, never-happened “Hands up. Don’t shoot” officer-involved shooting of felon and bully Michael Brown by victim Officer Darren Wilson occurred in Ferguson, MO, officers have had their backs up against the wall both politically and in reality. Just who perpetrated the false narrative of “Hands up; don’t shoot?” Black Lives Matter did.

    The BLM also forwarded the now forensically proven false narrative that Baltimore police officers “murdered” Freddie Gray in the back of a police transport van. That of course, never happened. But those false narratives didn’t stop the BLM from rioting in the streets of Ferguson, Baltimore and other cities where they fought with police and burned down black owned businesses. Since Black Lives Matter established chapters in those communities, the violent crime and homicide rates in those cities have climbed shy-high.

    The psychological almost PTSD “Ferguson Effect” upon officer morale in this country, in large part caused by Black Lives Matter political intrigue, has been researched and found to be quite accurate.

    In response to the salacious, false narratives of so called “systemic, organized police violence against minority races” and the “execution of unarmed blacks by police;” politically expedient politicians nationwide not wanting to have bands of Black Lives Matter provocateurs, marauders and arsonists visit their cities and destroy their downtown business distracts (ala Ferguson and Baltimore); have ratified and acquiesced to some elements of the BLM’s Campaign Zero plan for law enforcement which seeks to disenfranchise, diminish, defund and dissolve law enforcement’s presence in their communities.

    Police officers, who have historically complained about the lack of leadership at the top levels of their departments, have been forced to cope with their own chiefs bending to BLM supportive mayors and city councils who are seeking through ignorant policies to change the policing paradigm that thwarts law enforcement’s ability to proactively mitigate and reduce violent and property crimes. For example, in New York City the very effective crime reducing “stop and frisk” program is gone. In Seattle, WA, the city council just authorized a change in police use of force policy referred to as “proportional force” which is extremely dangerous to officers and inconsistent with constitutional case law and legal police practices.

    It is far more than coincidental that Black Lives Matter has a chapter, a Facebook and/or an active physical presence in nearly every one of America’s thirty most violent cities. As police morale plummets because officers have been increasingly disenfranchised from their own communities, the crime rates in those same cities has risen to astronomical heights.

    In the #3 most violent city Detroit, MI where their 2015 homicide rate was 44% higher than the previous year and other violent and property crimes are through the roof, police arrest rates have dropped 80% from 300 arrests a day down to 60 according to Police Commander Steve Dolunt. The unappreciated police in that violent city are expected to take on violent criminals, critical politicians and community activist Black Lives Matter members for a salary of $8/hour after taxes and pension deductions.

    Police morale in our nation’s #2 most violent city Baltimore, is so bad that the city’s Police Commissioner recently cancelled all leaves due to insufficient manpower to run the department’s daily operations. The reasons given? Failing police recruitment and retention problems; low staffing, pension issues, riots and political interference by Black Lives Matter.

    In our nation’s #4 most violent city New Orleans, the New Orleans PD has been losing one officer every three days since 2010. In a recent poll of its officers, 75% said that the department and city are worse off than they were three years ago. The polled officers cite citizen discontent, unfair, politically motivated Internal Affairs investigations, lack of equipment, poor equipment, poor leadership and political interference as the reasons for their lack of resonance in doing their jobs. It is no wonder that the New Orleans murder rate rose 40% from 2014 to 2015.

    In all three cities – Detroit, Baltimore and New Orleans, Black Lives Matter has active chapters and have repeatedly organized anti-police protests.

    Black Lives Matter poses an extreme danger to the black community


    Black Lives Matter brings nothing but trouble for the black community its leaders purport to support. The reality is that the BLM does nothing but exacerbate the problem of violent crime and homicides in the black community because its intended anti-police activities reduce police morale. This in turn causes officers who feel that they are poorly led, horribly paid, underappreciated and disenfranchised, to curtail their proactive enforcement efforts which historically has proven to be a very effective violent and property crime reduction strategy. This helps no one.

    FBI UCR crime statistics for 2016 document that black homicides of 12.37 per 100,000 blacks were nearly 1,200% higher than white homicides at 1.4 /100,000 and nearly 600% higher than Hispanic homicides at 2.5/100,000. Black robbery rates at 104 per 100,000 black persons were four times higher than Hispanic robberies at 23/100,000 and over ten times the white on white robbery rate at 10/100,000. Blacks sexually assaulting other blacks at 13.5/100,000 were twice as high as Hispanic sexual assaults at 7/100,000 and over three times higher than white on white sexual assaults at 4/100,000.

    Sufficed to say, urban blacks seeking a safer and less violent environment would be foolish encourage the presence or “support” of a Black Lives Matter chapter in their community. Then why do they? The answer is easy. They just don’t the truth about the Black Lives Matter movement and its war on police who protect the rule of law.

    Black Lives Matter are shrewd manipulators of the black community and media

    The leaders of the Black Lives Matter movement are shrewd operators and manipulators of the social and mainstream media. They forward knowingly false narratives about police, while presenting themselves as fighters of the oppressed. When uninformed people resonate with emotionally based and highly charged anti-police, anti-government rhetoric, it is difficult for them to consider forensic facts. It’s a simple as that.

    As one can see, there are unintended consequences for supporting the propaganda and actions of the Black Lives Matter movement. When you live in a high-crime community and you disenfranchise your police; you effectively remove all options and solutions towards reducing your violent crime rate. In effect, you become hostages in your own homes without a safety net.

    You cannot force your police to take unacceptable risks to help you when they believe you cannot be trusted to support them when the chips are down. After all, it’s a fact that Black Lives Matter won’t be showing up at your door to risk their lives when you call 9-1-1 in the middle of the night. Just some food for thought.

    Why doesn't BLM get behind employing millions on welfare. They can start with small business loans and legal guidance.

    What's the lowest common denominator in all this? If I were to tell you, I could be labeled a racist... Finding the lowest common denominator and fixing that problem is how I solve dilemmas.

    Murder rates up significantly in North Charleston, SC after the City gave in to public pressure and cut back on traffic stops after Officer Slagger shot a fleeing unarmed black motorist.

    "The frequent stops persisted through 2014, when North Charleston officers issued nearly 26,000 warning citations — a gauge of police activity that is tracked by the state Department of Public Safety. In 2015, when a video captured officer Michael Slager fatally shooting Walter Scott, that number fell to 15,000. It plummeted to 9,000 in 2016 before ticking up last year to more than 9,000 through November; no data was available for December."

    So now the LEOs let the perps go if they are black because they don't want to appear racist...

    Why do we need LEOs?

    Bill of Rights Article 2 is sufficient, IMO.

    indianapolis breaking the record it set last year. note the 'new heights' perfectly correlated with blm

    https://www.indystar.com/story/news...-another-record-criminal-homicides/906495001/

    The fatal shooting of a man on the east side early Monday appears to mark Indianapolis' 150th criminal homicide of the year, which would surpass 2016's record-setting total of 149 and make this the city's third consecutive year of such record violence.

    "Look, it's heartbreaking," Mayor Joe Hogsett said Monday. "At the same time, it's maddening."

    "I am sad that for the third year in a row Indy has broken a criminal homicide record," Harrison said. "We cannot as a city fix this problem unless we address the root causes of the violence like poverty, drug trafficking, joblessness, poor education, hopelessness and broken homes."

    Criminal homicides in Indianapolis have been on the rise every year since 2012, reaching new heights in 2015, with 144 criminal homicides recorded, and again in 2016. With 150 criminal homicides, 2017 would mark a third consecutive year of record highs.

    kansas city on a torrid pace through august...dont know how they finished

    http://www.kansascity.com/news/local/crime/article169473452.html

    Trail of trauma as city sprints to 100th homicide, on pace for record

    A woman was found dead in a parked car in Westport, and another woman was shot and killed in southeast Kansas City on Friday.

    It was the latest spate of violence in a city hurtling toward a grim milestone far quicker than it has in years past. If the two incidents recorded Friday both prove to be homicides, they will be No. 99 and No. 100 for 2017.

    After finishing last year with 130 homicides, this year Kansas City is almost right on pace to match its record of 153 homicides set in 1993.

    None of these articles mention the race of the dead or the killers, but I can read the names... Lowest common denominator.

    The God of the bible was an alien life form that came to earth in a ship. Not god, just had more tech. Being white is not a disease.

    Turning your back to a problem doesn't make it go away. 'Racist' is a word first used by a communist to manipulate people and that card is just about worn out these days. When people of a certain culture, who also happen to share a certain skin color, cause most of the violence in the country you can turn your back to it and shout racism but that does nothing to solve the problem.

    I live south of Louisville. Been here since the Army brought me in 1994. When I first got here carjacking was the hobby in Louisville, until for example a young white guy in a BMW killed a carjacker by shooting him throught the door with his 9mm. A few incidents like that and it seemed to "go away". Now the last few years the westside of Louisville has become or wants to be the minime of Chicago's south and southwest side. Barely a day goes by that there is not a shooting / killing there. A lot of the time it is minors, and sometimes they take out a child or baby due to poor gun handling skills. It is really sad in many cases. Seems the decent people take a big hit. I don't claim to have the answer nor do I think there is one universal answer. I will say that the "rap" or "black" popular culture influences many of these killers. Latest was a group of under 18's were rousted by the cops, they all ran away of course but some were picked up, the cops found guns and were unable to link the youths to the guns. However, a couple of days later the cops found a youtube video with the same youths flashing the same guns, so they started rounding them up again and now they had evidence to charge them.

    Seems to me that young people esp. boys need postitive role models in thier life, it might not be the solution to everything, but it sure wouldn't hurt. The huge numbers of "unwed mothers" and disfunctional families just makes the gang thing as a subsitute family all that more appealling to the young men. Imagine your father figure is a drug dealing gun slinger pimp. I don't think you are destined for greatness or even a decent life.

    The West end has always been like that, even as far back as when the blacks burned Fontaine Ferry Park. You don't see this kind of trouble in J-town or the East end.

    Well, a co-worker was going out to his car at 0 dark thirty on the East end around Christmas time and a youth in a hoodie shot him, lucky for him it was in the shoulder. This was about 10 years ago. No robbery, no known motive. I suspect gang-related initiation.
