Joe Biden’s failures continue to pile up by the day.
But now, things are getting even more dangerous for the American people.
And after this stunning report dropped, even top Democrats won’t be able to ignore Biden’s failures.
Joe Biden could end up being known as the man who presided over one of the worst surges in unsolved murders in American history, according to a new stunning report that indicates America’s spiraling homicide crisis is only getting worse with time.
After years of declines in the number of violent crimes, including murders, the trend began to reverse itself starting in 2020, when Left-wing mobs in many blue cities effectively took over most Democrat bastions, unleashing a sprawling crime wave that continues to this very day.
The effect of movements to curtail gun rights for the American people, combined with Democrat-led efforts to “defund the police” and even release convicted rapists and murderers out of prison, has helped to contribute to one of the most dangerous eras in modern American history.
And now, the homicide rate in many major cities in the country is now spiraling out of control.
CBS reports, “Across a nation that is already in the grips of a rise in violent crime, murders are going unsolved at a historic pace, a CBS News investigation has found. A review of FBI statistics shows that the murder clearance rate — the share of cases each year that are solved, meaning police make an arrest or close the case due to other reasons — has fallen to its lowest point in more than half a century.”
This stunning statistic is something which the United States has never before witnessed in its history.
Even during the homicide surge of the 1970s and 80s, the clearance rate for murders in the country was well over 60%.
Today, it’s hovering at barely 50%.
That means half of all murders in the entire country are now going unsolved, and in many parts of America, that number is much worse.
“It’s a 50-50 coin flip,” says Thomas Hargrove, who runs the Murder Accountability Project, which tracks unsolved murders nationwide. “It’s never been this bad. During the last seven months of 2020, most murders went unsolved. That’s never happened before in America.”
Yet it’s mostly in Blue states and cities where the crisis is significantly worse.
CBS adds, “In Chicago, police don’t report clearance data through the FBI’s Uniform Crime Reporting program, so CBS News submitted a Freedom of Information Act request for Chicago Police Department (CPD) data. In 2020, that data showed, the department’s murder clearance rate was about 44% — 16% less than the national average.”
Whether any prominent figures on the Left will end up condemning the forces and politicians who pushed to make this disaster a reality remains to be seen, but the fact is that the crime spree across the country has gotten so bad that politicians are beginning to take notice.
Sadly, most of the response seems to be to focused on limiting even more fundamental rights for American citizens, as seen be recent efforts in New York to curtail the Second Amendment in that state even more.
