USA: 30 pct. flere mord i 2020, historisk stigning pga. George Floyd, Black Lives Matter, Defund Police

Interessant artikel hos The Heritage Foundation – FBI Statistics Show a 30% Increase in Murder in 2020. More Evidence That Defunding Police Wasn’t a Good Idea..

“The surge in violent crime over the past year—murders in particular—has been astounding and historic. … The murder rate rose by nearly 30% in 2020, more than any other time in the last half-century. This is according to recently released statistics compiled by the Federal Bureau of Investigation in its annual report on crime.

The report shows that there were 4,901 more murders committed in 2020 than in 2019. It’s the largest single-year increase—by a wide margin—in murder rate since the FBI began compiling these statistics in 1960.

… Of course, some on the left have been quick to conclude that the issue is guns or possibly even simply the pandemic itself. These conclusions seem dubious. Violent crime has been falling for decades even as gun ownership in the United States remained high.

It’s also important to note that the murder increase didn’t really start until the summer of 2020 following the death of George Floyd at the hands of police in Minneapolis. This was after the pandemic began and the country went into various states of lockdown.”

“While there certainly could be a variety of factors involved in the murder surge, it’s hard not to see both the efforts to defund the police and—perhaps more importantly—the ‘Minneapolis Effect,’ as driving factors.

Following Floyd’s death, many cities hopped aboard the ‘defund the police’ movement. Los Angeles, Baltimore, Seattle, Chicago, Portland, and Minneapolis went through with this idea, often stripping millions of dollars out of their police budgets and directing them toward other social services.

Minneapolis is going even further and is looking to abolish its police department altogether.

This push to defund, which happened during a time of protests and increasing anti-police rhetoric from activists and lawmakers created what some have called the ‘Minneapolis Effect.’ …

The effect of this phenomenon was described by Paul Cassell, a law professor at the University of Utah, on a Heritage Foundation panel in March.

Here I think we have anti-police protests surrounding George Floyd’s killing. As a result, police had to be redeployed away from their normal beats and high-crime areas to police the protests. And even extending beyond that, I think what we see has happened is a reduction in policing, particularly the kinds of policing that might be expected to have the most effect on homicides and shooting crimes.

Cassell’s research shows a strong connection between de-policing and anti-police rhetoric driving surges in shootings. The 2020 numbers strongly back that up.

Departments moved away from proactive policing, and now struggle to clamp down on violent crime as police officers leave the force and are not replaced.

Many of the cities that defunded their police departments in 2020—like Portland—have been among the hardest hit by shootings. Some of these same cities later tacitly conceded that the idea was a failure by re-funding their police departments and re-creating proactive policing programs under new names. …

It’s ironic that many of the defund-the-police policies were putatively adopted to stop ’systemic racism.’ But as the murder numbers indicate, most of the victims of the violent crime surge have been black and Latino. According to the FBI’s data, over half of the murder victims in 2020 were black.”

  1. I hele Vesten ser det ud som om en
    massepsykose spreder sig med stor fart.
    Den bæres frem af både politikere,
    journalister og woke kvinder.

    Frau Merkel, Ursula, Ylva, Nancy Pelosi,
    Obama og Biden og lignende typer
    har stået i spidsen for udviklingen, som er
    fuldstændig katastrofal.

    Men det véd man jo ikke meget om, hvis man
    nøjes med DR, TV2 og papiraviserne. Der alle
    foretrækker at lade som om Merkel, Pelosi og
    Biden er normale og fornuftige mennesker.

  2. 18 ud af 20 byer i USA der er ramt af høj stigning i kriminalitet (og mord), er Demokratisk ledede. Er det det man kalder poetisk retfærdighed..?

    I Philidelphia, er der netop vedtaget en lov… Der skal “beskytte” sorte billister mod at blive stoppet for mindre forseelser. Så som fejl på lygteføring, udløb af forsikring mm.
    Den hedder Anti- “driving when black” Law.

  4. Interessant at observere et stort land i opløsning. Det startede, da det demokratiske parti (United Shitheads of America) greb til løgn og bagvaskelse for ulovligt at forhindre valget af Trump til præsident.
    Da usurpatoren Joe Biden er direkte styret af anonyme ‘handlere’, (hundehandlere), som også er i totterne på hinanden, er det vanskeligt at spå om, hvad der skal ske når Biden formentlig snart bliver (tvangs?)indlagt. Jolly good show.

    Opløsningen af USA startede MANGE år tidligere, især efter de katastrofale immigrationslove i 1965 (“Hart-Seller Act”).
