The United States has one of the worst murder rates in the world, unless you remove the data from the top five, Democrat-run cities. Then we are way, way down the list.

The U.S. has a major problem with murder. But that murder rate is not distributed evenly across the country. In fact, our murder rate is fairly low in most of the country. But once you add in the corrupt, dangerous, Democrat-infested cities, the murder rate for the country as a whole soars.

As Law Enforcement Today’s Joseph Patrick recently noted, the murder data from Chicago, Detroit, Washington, DC, St. Louis and New Orleans, seriously raises our murder rate.

As Patrick reported:

“Adding in the current recession into the economic disruption caused by the Wuhan virus and it isn’t a wonder we’re at the place where we are. And what has followed is exploding crime and exploding murder rates. Here is an example, all Democrat-run cities, with murders per 100,000 residents:”

  • Louis, MO- 69.4
  • Baltimore, MD- 51.1
  • New Orleans, LA- 40.6
  • Detroit, MI- 39.7
  • Cleveland, OH- 33.7
  • Las Vegas, NV- 31.4
  • Kansas City, MO- 31.2
  • Memphis, TN- 27.1
  • Newark, NJ- 25.6
  • Chicago, IL- 24.0
  • Cincinnati, OH- 23.8
  • Philadelphia, PA- 20.2
  • Milwaukee, WI- 20.0
  • Tulsa, OK- 18.6
  • Pittsburgh, PA- 18.4
  • Indianapolis, IN- 17.7
  • Louisville, KY- 17.5
  • Oakland, CA- 17.1
  • Washington, DC- 17.0
  • Atlanta, GA- 16.7

“So while Democrats and far-left gun-grabbers claim the United States is one of the most violent countries in the world, it’s all a matter of perspective. Remove the Democrat-run hell holes from the list, even just the five biggest and the rate is almost infinitesimal,” he added.

Seems pretty cut and dried.
