Violent crime continues its surge across the United States with the most recent report revealing that murder rates have increased by 10 percent in America's largest Democrat-run cities.
Daily Mail reports that murder rates have shot up another 10 percent across 45 cities, with experts citing the cause of the increase due to soft-on-crime policies and the war on police, a recent study from WalletHub shows.
"Alarmingly, homicide rates have risen by an average of roughly 10% in 45 of the most populated U.S. cities between Q1 2021 and Q1 2023, and are still rising," the study analysis notes.
According to the study, Memphis, New Orleans, Richmond, Washington DC, Detroit, Durham, Dallas. Milwaukee, Las Vegas and Kansas City ranked as America's worst homicide hotspots after comparing data from the first three months of 2023, to 2022 and 2021. New York City ranked 36, while Los Angeles came in at 38.
