      The following is from the Chicago Police Department.

      It is titled “Chicago Near North Crime Complaints”.

      It compares “Last 28 Days, Year Over Year.”

      Robbery…………….up 106%

      Shooting Incidents…..up 150%

      Vehicle Theft……….up 60%

      Sexual Assault………up 467%

      Far Left Politics???

      Remain intimately at the heart of experience.

      Calm down on the threads or I may have to run some analysis on your posting 😏

      This talking point is regurgitated every six months or so.

      The counter point is always:

      Gangs
      Buying guns outside the city limits

      There, I saved you some time

      The point is diminish the police and crime rises.

      Murder up 100% in Portland. (Your home town???)

      Guns existed before

      Diminish the effectiveness of Police is a now event.

      6 months ago, on a year over year comparison,

      the numbers didn’t look nearly as bad.

      But you’re welcome to keep trying.

      Remain intimately at the heart of experience.

      Do you think restricting the police is a conservative view??

      Almost all the cities that are suffering from a large increase in crime

      are run by very left leading mayors.

      Remain intimately at the heart of experience.

      From Chicago Tribune:

      Just as it did half a century ago, the argument ignores the complicated reasons for fluctuations in crime rates — a list that today includes the upheaval wrought by the coronavirus pandemic and protests that erupted after the killing of George Floyd by police.

      “2020 was just a crazy complicated year where lots of things happened, and there are lots of potential explanations for why we saw these big changes,” said David Abrams, a University of Pennsylvania Law School professor, who tracks crime rates and is studying the impact of the pandemic. The bottom line? “It’s complicated.”

      Los Angeles and Chicago have also seen double-digit increases in their homicide rates this year, and they did reduce spending on police. Chicago cut its police budget by 3%, largely by eliminating vacant positions. Los Angeles reduced spending on police by about 5% overall.

      Yet homicide rates are also increasing in cities that didn’t cut spending.

      In Houston, a city led by a Democratic mayor, killings have increased, but so, too, has funding for police.

      Nashville, Tennessee, also led by a Democratic mayor, increased the police budget but has seen homicides spike 50% so far this year over last.

      Last year in Minneapolis, city officials shifted $8 million — less than 5% of the police budget — to programs focused on community mental health and violence prevention. In February, they approved $6.4 million to hire new police officers after an unprecedented number of officers retired or went on extended medical leave following Floyd’s killing.

      In Portland, homicides were up from six in the first five months of 2020 to 38 in the first five months of 2021, according to city police data, a more than 530% increase. That’s lower than the 800% increase claimed by the Fraternal Order of Police, which said it was based on homicides through May 25.

      The city, a center of defund police efforts, trimmed its police budget last year by less than 4%, far short of the $50 million in cuts sought by activists.
