Study: 27 of the 30 Cities with Highest Murder Rate Are Democrat Run

A study published by the Heritage Foundation’s Edwin Meese III Center for Judicial and Legal Studies shows that 27 of the 30 cities with the highest murder rates are controlled by Democrats.

FOX News noted that the study indicates “27….[of the 30 cities] have Democratic mayors. Within those cities, there are at least 14 “rogue prosecutors” either backed or inspired by billionaire Democrat supporter George Soros.”

The Daily Signal reported that the authors of the study–Charles Stimson, Zack Smith, and Kevin D. Dayaratna–noted, “Those on the Left know that their soft-on-crime policies have wreaked havoc in the cities where they have implemented those policies.”

Stimson, Smith, and Dayaratna added:

It is not hard to understand why ‘reforms’ such as ending cash bail, defunding the police, refusing to prosecute entire categories of crimes, letting thousands of convicted felons out of prison early, significantly cutting the prison population, and other ‘progressive’ ideas have led to massive spikes in crime—particularly violent crime, including murder—in the communities where those on the Left have implemented them.

The study undercuts Hillary Clinton’s claim that Republicans’ emphasis on crime and violence in Democrat-run cities was not valid.

On November 3, 2022, CNN quoted Clinton suggesting Republicans were “just trying to gin up all kinds of fear and anxiety in people.”

  1. The handwriting is on the wall.
    Half the country refuses to read it and we are all paying the price.
    Evil exists, defunding the police allows it to thrive.
    Common sense must prevail.

    We sold our home and left California and headed to Minnesota 2 years ago and have never looked back. We left due to “the writing on the wall” (the rising crime rates) and other reasons, high cost of living, and the fact there are just to many people in So. Calif. It takes 20 min. (or more) to go 5 miles. Yes, it’s cold and snows in Minnesota, but it’s safe, and we can afford to live here.

    This is our first regular election since moving to Minnesota. Its funny to watch the polical ads, the Dem. Govenor feels the only issue out there is abortion. The Rep. Govenor candidate has very impactful ads showing the destruction of the Minneapolis rioting and another one showing a enactment of a carjacking and the fact that carjackings are up over 700+ this year alone. He also highlights isuues that all citizens care about, not just abortion. But the best are his ads showing the crime in the Minneapolis/St. Paul.
