Progressive politicians and prosecutors lead to increased murder rate

 Fox News:


The murder rate was estimated to be 6.9 murders per 100,000 people in 2021 – just 0.5 lower than the 1996 murder rate of 7.4, according to FBI data examined by data analyst Jeff Asher and shared by the New York Times. It’s the closest the nation has come to the high-crime scourge of the early 90s.

Former New York Police Department (NYPD) Commissioner Howard Safir attributed the high murder numbers last year to several factors, including "cancel culture and woke mentality that assumes that police are racist and brutal." He also pointed to soft-on-crime policies and a lack of support for police.

"If crimes continue to be committed in large numbers, and police continue not to have the backing of politicians and the public, then they're not going to do their job the way they did when I was commissioner," Safir told Fox News Digital on Tuesday.

Safir was at the helm of the NYPD from 1996 to 2000 and said he reduced New York City crime by 38% by the time his tenure ended. He noted that the majority of crimes in America are linked to "drugs and guns."

Austin Texas also saw an increase in the murder rate when it reduced the number of police after a BLM riot.
