Homicides up 30 percent in largest increase on record, FBI says
The FBI's Uniform Crime Report for 2020 was published Monday, showing homicides increased nearly 30 percent last year from 2019.

The FBI's Uniform Crime Report for 2020 was published Monday, showing homicides increased nearly 30 percent last year from 2019.

This data marks the first time in four years that the estimated number of violent crimes in the U.S. increased from the previous year, the FBI said in a statement.

Violent crime increased by 5 percent from 2019 to 2020, according to the FBI, while overall crime was down 6 percent during the same time period.

"In 2020, there were an estimated 1,277,696 violent crimes," the agency said. "When compared with the estimates from 2019, the estimated number of robbery offenses fell 9.3 percent and the estimated volume of rape (revised definition) offenses decreased 12.0 percent."

The 2020 jump in homicides, however, marked the "largest single-year increase" the FBI has reported since it began collecting the data in the 1960s, according to CNN.

There were 21,570 reported homicides last year.

The homicide rate per 100,000 people was 6.5 in 2020, still well below when murder rates peaked around 9.8 per 100,000 in the early 1990s, according to the FBI's data.

More offenders and victims involved in violent crimes were between ages 20 and 29 than any other age group, the data showed.

The information is considered far from comprehensive as submitting data for the report is optional. About 85 percent of agencies that were eligible to participate in the report submitted data, according to the FBI. Some of the cities that did not submit data included New York, Chicago and New Orleans, CNN reported.

The FBI's report also estimated that nationwide law enforcement agencies made about 7.6 million arrests last year.

Amid Left-Wing Push To ‘Defund The Police,’ Murders Skyrocket By Nearly 30 Percent.

When Democrat-led city councils in Los Angeles, DC, Baltimore and Minneapolis voted to divert funds away from law enforcement or cut budgets that would have allowed for more officers to patrol the streets. It was the year of 2020 when the scum again took to the streets, calling “all cops b-stards” and even saying they should die. The cost of the destruction alone totalled about $400 Million, in that memorable year when rioting, looting, arson, and other crimes were committed in the name of “racial justice.”

Funny that you think the numbers are improving under the human fuck up machine that now occupies the WH. Despite all evidence to the contrary.

The number of homicides continues to rise in major American cities following a year that saw a record increase in homicides across the country, according to a report published Thursday by the Council on Criminal Justice.

A study of homicides during the first six months of this year in 22 cities showed that the number of murders increased by 16% compared to the same period in 2020 and by 42% compared to the first six months of 2019.
The report is the latest suggesting that the number of homicides in major American cities continues to grow.
Seems that criminals don't give a shit that a Democrat is President. Of course it is Democrat bastions of stupidity like NY, Chicago, and other large cities that lead the way.

Do you remember that Kamala Harris had a fund set up to free the rioters?  That was all part of 2020. Biden ignored it, wouldn't comment....remember?

Every democrat owns it

Kellyanne McIninny blamed the rise in 2020 murders on Biden.  The feckless airhead is so clueless that she does not even realize that Trump was in office in 2020.  She deleted the tweet when she got busted but as Farron Cousins pointed out...."Screen shots are forever."  Maybe she can get a Tinder date with the magat who blamed Obama for hiding out in the WH on 9/11.

The blame for the riots go to BLM, antifa and democrat mayors who aided it. All of them represented by Joe Biden. The rising crime and violence was a side effect of the defund the police movement which grew out of that madness.

PROVE IT Vic. You posted a seed about the FBI report, so cite the data to support your claim from the report.

I'll tell you that I have actually reviewed the data for multiple states and cities and your attempt to dis LA and Baltimore is WAY off base. The data is right there in the FBI report. The higher rates of homicide do NOT come from those cities.

It would be great if you and yours could go at least ONE DAY without posting a strawman fallacy Vic. 

YOU made a claim about LA and Baltimore, it is FALSE.

That's because it is only a SELECT few cities on the list. Tulsa, Fort Worth and Miami all have higher % upticks in homicide than LA and they have GOP Mayors. 

Opps.

Oh BTFW, just because a city has a Democratic mayor does not PROVE that there was any demonizing of police or that it caused an uptick in murder rates.

There are no "alternate facts".  It is fact that the lefts go to excuse is to blame Trump.  Even when the root cause is the left, it's blame Trump.

The FBI doesn't investigate every murder or violent crime in America.

And a proposal is far from actually doing it, which some cities have done in defunding police.
