Black, Hispanic Crime Overwhelms US Cities
Black and Hispanic crime—often drug- and gang-related—resulted in at least 1,044 homicides and over 5,742 shootings in Los Angeles and Chicago alone in 2016—an average of 3 murders and 15 shootings per day.
The sharp rise in crime rates is directly proportional to the rapidly dropping white populations, and the fact that nonwhites now compromise more than 70 percent of the population of both those cities.
According to the Los Angeles Times, violent crime in that city has increased for the third year in a row, “as police tried to stem a rash of homicides and gang-related shootings while dealing with a growing homeless population.”
Figures issued by the Los Angeles Police Department showed that there were 1,705 rapes, 9,819 robberies, and 15,198 aggravated assaults in 2016.
In addition, there were 14,768 burglaries, 17,855 motor vehicle thefts, 29,758 burglary theft from vehicles (BTFV), and 30,837 personal/other theft incidents.
At least 2,517 shots were fired, and there were 1,063 “shooting victims,” the police report revealed. In total, some 137,578 individuals were arrested for all crimes during 2016.
According to the U.S. Census Bureau, “non-Hispanic whites” constituted 28.7 percent of the population of Los Angeles as of July 1, 2016.
Meanwhile, a report in the Chicago Tribune revealed that as of December 26, 2016, there had been 754 homicides in Chicago, compared with 480 during the same period last year—an increase of 57 percent.
Shooting incidents also jumped by 46 percent in 2016 to 3,512 from 2,398.
Furthermore, the newspaper said, “crimes went up by double digits in nearly every major category, including criminal sexual assaults, robberies, and thefts.”
