US murder rate explodes by 30% in 2020, most in six decades
09/29/2021 // News Editors // Views

New FBI crime data has revealed that the murder rate in the United States increased by a whopping 30% in 2020, the greatest single-year increase in the national murder rate since the 1960’s.

The 21,570 murders in the United States are the most since the year 1995, during the mid-1990’s crime spike which Congress met with new federal sentencing and criminal justice laws. The advent of 21st century surveillance technology also contributed to a decrease in crime and the imprisonment of repeat offenders. FBI Uniform Crime reports released Monday summarized crime findings of 2020.

The murders in 2020 represented a 29.4% increase from 2019. The phenomenon appears closely related to the rise of the Black Lives Matter street terror movement, and an increasing willingness on the part of Democrat-governed large cities to tolerate crime. Murders spiked in the summer of 2020, following the controversial death of Minneapolis man George Floyd.

2020 also witnessed increasing hostility towards city police departments, with city governments standing by as massive left-wing riots engulfed urban centers. Failing criminal justice policies have contributed to the creation of urban blight in inner-city neighborhoods, engulfed by drug use, crime and homelessness.

Violent crime in general also increased, with the Uniform Crime Report concluding that “for the first time in four years, the estimated number of violent crimes in the nation increased when compared with the previous year’s statistics,” with the 1.3 million violent crimes representing a 5.6% increase from 2019.

Criminal justice experts believe national murder rates have continued to increase in 2021 during Joe Biden’s term as President. With municipalities increasingly unwilling to adopt tough-on-crime policies, it’s likely crime will further engulf troubled urban communities until voters elect tough-on-crime leaders.
