This is what collapse looks and feels like. Wait until the economy and financial system go down the drain. From Michael Snyder at theeconomiccollapseblog.com:
Perhaps some of you think that I am exaggerating, and so let’s look at some hard numbers.
At this point, there are 12 large U.S. cities that have already broken their all-time murder records for an entire year…
At least 12 major U.S. cities have broken annual homicide records in 2021 — and there’s still three weeks to go in the year.
Of the dozen cities that have already surpassed the grim milestones for killings, five topped records that were set or tied just last year.
“It’s terrible to every morning get up and have to go look at the numbers and then look at the news and see the stories. It’s just crazy. It’s just crazy and this needs to stop,” Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney said after his city surpassed its annual homicide record of 500, which stood since 1990.
The 12 cities that have already established brand new records in 2021 are Philadelphia, St. Paul, Portland, Indianapolis, Tucson, Louisville, Toledo, Baton Rouge, Austin, Columbus, Rochester and Albuquerque.
And with more than half of December still remaining, more cities will be joining that list by the time the year is finally over.
In Los Angeles, violent crime numbers are going up so fast that it is difficult to believe that the figures are actually real…
The LAPD reports that in the first 24 weeks of 2021, reports of shots fired were up 48 percent. The number of people wounded by gun violence was up 50 percent and homicides were up 26 percent.
