Another striking report puts the Democrat Washington DC in a bind.

Now we get word of the homicide rate soaring in DC of all places.

Befuddling 😮

Where oh where are the answers ?🍋



MURDER CAPITAL: DC’s Homicide Rate SOARS 42% as National Average Declines

The murder rate in Washington, DC “soared” throughout 2018 despite a decline in the national average; raising serious questions over safety and security throughout the nation’s capital.

“As homicides across the country’s most populated cities declined overall in 2018, Washington, D.C. saw an increase of almost 42 percent in its murder rate, which experts say will continue to trend upwards in 2019. The D.C. Chief of Police warned that easing penalties would make the District less safe,” writes the Daily Caller.

“Repeat offenders who have committed gun crimes will be back on the street sooner,” said the Police Chief just months ago. “Less-stringent penalties embolden criminals, demoralize law enforcement and enable violent offenders to return more quickly to terrorizing the very communities who are calling out to the government for help.”


"DC smoking guns !!"

If they make a law making homicides illegal, then this will all stop.

Either that or we can convince millennials that homicide is nothing more than life shaming others. Then let the protests sort this out.

This article is contradicting to past repost of a rise in crime rate.
Also a certain person currently resides in that area.....I think.
But ya let’s blaim the left when in all reality the blame falls on both parties.

The victims are using, "Death Privilege" as a way of getting out of paying taxes.


THIS NEEDS TO STOP!

They need to double down and make illegal gun ownership illegal.

THAT will fix it!!!

But if they're illegals owning illegal weapons, it cancels out and they can actually run for office.


Ocasio-Cortez said so.

She also says bubble gum is chewy.

So gun-related homicides are the fault of both parties?

How about we look at policies, whether they are Republican or Democrat and see which heavily-dominated cities of both parties have the most gun crime?

Spoiler... you will find that cities that have been under heavy Democratic rule for years have the most gun-related crime.

My personal opinion is that since Democratic policies promote poverty and misery then there is more overall violence in those areas.

After all, if you take everything from a person then they no longer have anything to lose...

DC actually needs more guns, everyone should have them. Especially the politicians.

Death privilege needs to stop now, those people are costing the Americans 41 billion a year. (estimated based off of 15k per death) This needs to stop. These life shaming people are also only making the issues worse by adding to that number each day. These death privilege claimants are the real National Emergency.

According to her, the world will end before she can legally run for office.

If she thought it through she would have at least put the doomsday date at 14 years...

Be a stupid person, think stupid things.

It would be nice if we had primaries that way.

MUCH better idea than cage matches.

Or how we do them now... just see how much out-of-state money people can spend.

Challenging your opposition's donors to a duel would be a nice idea too...

Sorry Lum...hit reply on the wrong post.


Nevermind


Maybe they should just start taxing people more if they have a gun illegally.

After all, if you tax things more then they go away!

Except jobs, of course... if they tax those then Democrats magically make more jobs.

Sorry.. I get confused on what taxes make go away and what taxes makes more of.

Probably why I stopped being a Democrat awhile ago.

Quoting so those who blindly support "the D" can have another chance at reading the truth.

They have strict gun laws in DC. I guess the gun laws don't bother criminals and killers, they target good citizens who follow the laws. What gang member, drug dealer, or thief is going to give up their guns? Hmmm. maybe the liberals are working with the Cartel afterall.

I guess that was Trump's fault

The crazy thing is, DC has the highest average income (and third highest median income) of any state or territory in the Union.

en.wikipedia.org...


So does poverty really correlate with murder rate?
