A new analysis of the world’s most dangerous cities has found that nearly a dozen of them are located in what is supposed to be the most sophisticated and powerful nation on the planet — America.
There are 11 American cities listed among the world’s 50 most dangerous, according to the 2023 rankings from Numbeo, and they have one common factor — they are all run by Democrats, and what’s more, they have been for years — decades, in most cases.
The Crime Index 2023 lists Baltimore at No. 15, Memphis at No. 18, and Detroit at No. 19. Two additional cities, No. 23 Albuquerque and No. 27 St. Louis, are among the top 30 worst.
Just the News reported, “Brandon Scott, just 38 years of age, is the mayor of Baltimore. Jim Strickland Jr., an attorney and politician, is the 64th and current mayor of Memphis, where the Memphis police department has just announced plans to permanently deactivate the unit that five of the officers involved in the vicious beating of Tyre Nichols belonged to. Mike Duggan, meanwhile, is currently serving as the mayor of Detroit.”
In Albuquerque, Tim Keller, 45, is the mayor, and in St. Louis, Tishaura Oneda Jones is the mayor.
“Tracking back for a wider view yields a still grimmer perspective for Democrats, as another six Democrat-run cities rank among the world’s 50 most dangerous: New Orleans (#35), Oakland (#38), Milwaukee (#40), Chicago (#43), Philadelphia (#46), and Houston (#50). Again, all of these cities are run by Democrats,” Just the News confirmed.
The cities are given both a Crime Index and a Safety Index in the chart, with Crime scores lower than 20 considered excellent. Safety scores higher than 80 are considered good. The American cities don’t even come close. Baltimore has a Crime score of 75.5 and a Safety score of 24.5 – right there with Rosario, Argentina, and other second- and third-world cesspools of danger and violence.
The report pointed out that last year the city reported robberies jumping 300 percent at convenience stores alone. In Memphis, there were 4,501 crimes reported just in the city’s downtown region, and in Detroit, on New Year’s Day alone, six people were shot, with five of them winding up in the morgue. More than 200 police officers fled the department last year.
Just the News said, “Democrats have often been labeled ‘soft on crime’ by their opponents. The latest Numbeo report will do little to stem such denunciations.”
Meanwhile, regarding the number of officers who left Baltimore, police departments all over the country are experiencing shortages of officers thanks to ‘soft-on-crime’ district attorneys who don’t prosecute criminals and Democratic “defund the police” politicians who have their own private security.
Interestingly, a Fox News report from October found that 11 (some of them part of the group of 11 dangerous U.S. cities, not surprisingly) police departments around the country are having a particularly difficult time trying to recruit enough officers, leaving many to question what impact fewer cops has on overall public safety:
National Police Association spokesperson Ret. Sgt. Betsy Branter Smith pointed to eleven cities that have experienced severe staffing issues after the anti-police rhetoric of 2020 and its political fallout: New York City; Chicago; Los Angeles; Philadelphia; Seattle; St. Louis; Louisville, Kentucky; Austin and San Antonio, Texas; and Phoenix and Tuscon, Arizona.
“I think this could be a generational problem,” Branter-Smith said when asked how long she expects the staffing issues to last. “This could go on for years. Even if, let’s say, I could flip a magic switch tomorrow, and everyone loved the police and every kid in America wanted to be a cop … it takes nine months to a year from the date of hire for a person to become a police officer. So, there’s one problem. Even if we could fix this tomorrow, it’ll be a year before any of those staffing issues are addressed.”
Democrats are purposely destroying our cities, so Americans panic and beg them to implement authoritarian ‘reforms,’ thereby negating our Bill of Rights.
