Shocker: Murder Rate Skyrockets When Police Are Defunded

Videos by OutKick

Who could have ever predicted this?

The murder rate is skyrocketing in cities where there were the most aggressive and active protests in the country: New York, Minneapolis, Atlanta, Chicago.

The murder rate is skyrocketing in those locations.  The rate of shootings is skyrocketing is those locations.

Do you know why?  Because they defunded the police.

It was so evident what was going to happen. 

When you take away money from police and when you take police off the street, the murder rate and the shooting rate will go up immediately.

This is not complicated. This is not difficult. It is insanely easy to follow.

The people who are dealing with it the most are black. The murder rate among black people skyrockets as soon as you take police off the street.

You want to protest and say Black Lives Matter and then you take away police which means Black Lives Matter protests are going to lead to more black deaths.

The data is clear. Everyone who has a functional brain knew this was going to happen.

Police save lives. The mainstream media focuses on the errors that police make.

No one is perfect. When police make errors and behave in a criminal fashion, they should be prosecuted.

Think about what the mainstream media told us during the protests.

Even as we watched riots take place, the media said most protestors were peaceful.

Yet, the media also said all police were bad.

You can’t judge an entire group of people based on the actions of a handful.

You have to look at actual data and the data was clear.

This is why I don’t think Joe Biden should be criticized for supporting Bill Clinton’s agenda in the 1990s which put more police on the streets.

More police on the streets save lives. Black, white, Asian, Hispanic.

Police save lives.  When we only focus on their misbehavior, we miss all of the lives that they save and right now you are seeing what is happening with fewer police on the streets.

The bad guys win and minorities, particularly black people, bear the brunt of the pain of a rise in shootings and murders.

Real data. Real data that matters. It’s frustrating. It’s frustrating to live in a world right now where it doesn’t appear that facts matters if they hurt peoples’ feelings.

The only thing that matters is facts, facts, facts.  Our show is skyrocketing. Our site is skyrocketing because of the facts. The real facts. Period.

Coronabros don’t like when facts are shared.

  1. This is such an important piece of analysis and straightforward data that the mainstream media continues and perhaps maliciously ignore. Sad that precious lives are lost because of idiocy and politics due to dangerous, extreme-left propaganda. Time to America to move on from politics and look to save lives w/ sensible tough-on-crime policies.

  2. Why isn’t the defund the police movement and the embracing of socialism ending the Democratic Party? 20 years ago, that would be a party ending platform. Literally no politician anywhere in the country would be elected anywhere in America with a radical platform like that in 2000

  3. SJW: “The criminal justice system in America is systemically racist and evil and must be torn down and replaced by roving Intersectional Emergency Wellness Responders singing ‘Imagine’!”
    Sane person: “So you have a brilliant plan to end these claimed injustices and usher in Woketopia?”
    SJW: “Your question is racist, your sarcastic tone is Hitlerian, but yes.”
    Sane person: “Haven’t your fellow travelers — that is, the D party machine — been in charge of Detroit, St. Louis, Philly, Oakland, Chicago, Atlanta, Minneapolis, etc. — for, on average, a half century?”
    SJW: “Your patriarchal, implicitly biased, terroristic question which I do not acknowledge is physically harming me. I now have trauma-induced, end-stage fibromyalgia! I’m having Twitter drone strike your house stolen from indigenous peoples!”
    Sane person: “Sounds ominous. While we wait in line — socially distanced, of course — for your soy latte with gender non-binary goat milk, a final Curious George inquiry: why have the wise and benevolent people monolithically in charge of all the places where you claim systemic racism and police brutality is most prevalent not fixed it — heck, marginally improved the situation — in the past fifty years?”
    SJW: (blank, uncomprehending stare) “Your hate is inducing a crippling migraine. Barrista! I’m having a medical emergency brought on by this impudent White Male Oppressor! Bring me Chairman Mao, my therapy pot-bellied pig leashed outside to my BDS scooter. Hurry! I’m having Victim Tachycardia!”
