Go Figure: Anti-Gun Democrat-Run Cities With ‘Progressive’ Prosecutors Have the Highest Homicide Rates

Democrat-led cities across America have a serious violent crime problem. They also have an even bigger homicide problem. While crime has risen to some degree in most locales since 2021, cities with Democrat leadership saw the biggest increases.

The sole exception to the cities with the highest growth in homicide comes from the Dallas suburb of Garland, Texas. However Garland’s prosecutor, Dallas County DA John Creuzot, won his last election thanks in large part to a $400,000 contribution from George Soros.

Memphis, New Orleans, Baltimore, St. Louis and Detroit are all been run by mayors who despise gun owners while bending over backwards to excuse and coddle criminals. What’s more, they all have Soros-funded prosecutors. In other words, prosecutors who prosecute the law-abiding for fighting back while undercharging or turning loose violent criminals, time after time.

At the same time, the mayors of these hell-hole cities advocate for endless gun control for the little people, working to ensure their most vulnerable citizens are easy pray for predators…while oftentimes ignoring those same laws themselves.

The Epoch Times has the gory details of the burgeoning homicides in Democrat-run strongholds . . .

Cities governed by Democrat mayors have seen the largest increases in homicide rates over the past year as well as registered the highest homicide rate per capita in Q1 out of 45 cities, according to a new report.

Homicide rates in 45 of the most populated American cities rose by approximately 10 percent on average between Q1, 2021 and Q1, 2023, and continue to rise, according to an April 26 report by WalletHub. Blue cities were found to have a higher increase in homicide rates compared to red cities. The report designated a city as red or blue based on the mayor’s political affiliation.

The top five cities that saw the greatest increase in per capita homicide are Richmond, Virginia; Memphis, Tennessee; Durham, North Carolina; Garland, Texas; and Washington, D.C.

Except for Garland, where Mayor Scott LeMay is a Republican, the remaining four cities have mayors who are affiliated with the Democratic Party.

The highest homicide rate per capita in the first quarter of 2023 was in Memphis at 14.19 per 100,000 residents. New Orleans, Louisiana, came in second at 12.76, followed by Baltimore, Maryland, with 10.47, St. Louis, Missouri, with 9.91, and Detroit, Michigan, with 8.52…

Political Reason Behind Spiking Homicides
Gregg W. Etter, a professor at the Department of Criminal Justice at the University of Central Missouri, blamed the tendency of politicians to seek “simplistic, one-size-fits-all solutions to complex problems” as a reason behind the spike in homicides across the nation.

Politicians offer such solutions to gain favor with political interest groups during elections, he pointed out. For instance, when faced with the issue of police using force in isolated instances, such politicians might support defunding the police rather than dealing with problematic officers.

This ends up resulting in a less-effective police force, higher response times, lower morale among officers, and an “increasing unwillingness” to engage in proactive policing, he said.  “This has left many police forces in a strictly reactive mode, only responding to crimes that have already occurred…”

In other words, folks, the little people are on their own. It’s up to us to protect ourselves, our families, and our homes from violent predatory criminals.

Tool up, folks. Learn how to use your firearms and the rules of the road for the use of force in self-defense. Also, be prudent. Get yourself some sort of self-defense insurance coverage from US Law Shield, Armed Citizens Legal Defense Network or one of the others.

With decisions come consequences. Ignoring the proven, life-saving benefits of firearm ownership can have disastrous consequences, no matter the size of the town where you live. We’re seeing that play out in real time now and it’s not pretty.
