These Are America’s Violent Crime Hotspots

The District of Columbia had the highest rates of violent crime in the United States in 2020, according to the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s data.

“Residents are scared,” said Michael D. Shankle, chair of the Advisory Neighborhood Commission in the Chinatown area, after three people were shot one night last month, one fatally, in two separate incidents. 

He added, “They are angry. … We feel like we don’t have enough support.”

Nearly 1,000 cases of violent crime per 100,000 people were recorded in the state.

Alaska also has a high rate of violent crime, at 838 cases per 100,000 population.

As Statista’s Anna Fleck shows in the map below, the south-eastern states of New Mexico, Arkansas, Tennessee and Louisiana also show higher figures than much of the rest of the country.

At the other end of the spectrum placed Maine (109 per 100,000), New Hampshire (146), and Vermont (173).

Finally, we note that even with some of the country’s toughest gun laws, the District is awash in firearms.

Police so far this year have seized 2,249 guns, 815 more than this time last year…

…they seem to be fighting a losing battle as the bad guys just won’t follow their rules!

Twitter Bans Multiple Antifa Accounts After Threats And Attempts To Burn Down Tesla Dealerships

Violent extreme leftists were allowed to organise riots on Twitter for years

Elon Musk’s Twitter has suspended several accounts belonging to extreme leftist Antifa groups following years of incitement to violence culminating in threats to commit arson against Tesla facilities.

Journalist Andy Ngo tweeted the details, noting that while some accounts are suspended, others remain active:

As more accounts were suspended, Antifa chicken necks began to target Telsa:

The suspensions came after Musk asked for Twitter users last week to tell him what problems urgently needed fixing. Ngo responded, noting that Antifa uses Twitter to organise violent riots.

Musk promised that incitement to violence would result in suspensions.

Musk also noted how it was “disturbing” that Twitter had previously taken no action against Antifa accounts.

    Video: New York Democrat Gov. Kathy Hochul Really Did Say It’s A “Conspiracy” That Violent Crime Is Rising

    She doesn’t understand why Americans care about it

    Any inconvenient fact for Democrats is now dismissed as a “conspiracy”. This was once again in evidence last week as New York Governor Kathy Hochul used the pejorative against people pointing out that there has been a rise in violent crime.

    Calling Republicans ‘election deniers and data deniers,’ Hochul claimed that shootings and murders are “down fifteen percent in our state in New York City.”

    Hochul charged that Republicans are “master manipulators” attempting to convince the nation that they are less safe in Democratic controlled States.

    As The New York Post highlights, while murders are down by 14% in New York City over the summer compared with last year, all other major crimes surged — including a 33% rise in robberies, police statistics show.

    In an earlier debate with her Republican opponent Lee Zeldin, Hochul stated that she doesn’t understand why being touch on crime is important to him, even though Americans list it as a priority:

    Even MSNBC anchors are not buying it from Hochul:

    Nationwide, murder rates are up, according to both FBI and CDC data.

    Lets ignore that though:
