Murder Is Up Again In 2017, But Not As Much As Last Year
By Jeff Asher

JUL. 13, 2017 AT 10:47 AM

Big U.S. cities saw another increase in murders in the first half of 2017, likely putting them on track for a third straight year of rising totals after murder rates reached historic lows in 2014. So far, however, this year’s increase is considerably smaller than it was in each of the past two years; the big-city numbers are consistent with only a modest rise in murders nationwide.

… The most recent full year for which official data is available is 2015, when murders rose at their fastest pace in a quarter century. Official 2016 data won’t be available until the fall, but murder almost certainly rose last year too; in January, I found that big cities experienced a roughly 11 percent increase in murders in 2016, which past patterns suggest is consistent with about an 8 percent rise in murder overall.

In order to gauge changes in the prevalence of murder in big cities in 2017, I collected year-to-date murder counts for 2017 and 2016 in 68 of the country’s big cities, using a mixture of data from the cities themselves and from media reports. …

These big cities have had roughly 4 percent more murders so far in 2017 than they did at the same point in 2016.

… St. Louis, Baltimore, New Orleans and Detroit have ranked among the top four cities in murder rate per 100,000 residents every year since 2014, and so far, 2017 does not appear to be any different.

    Except it is not "running rampant", it is blacks killing blacks in black majority cities. Not an issue most of us care about, not relevant to most of us.

    Opioid addiction among rural and small town whites is a much better example of "Late Age Obama Collapse".

    And the scandalous and deplorable under-incarceration of violent black recidivists due to indulgent black and white left-liberal judges, the adamant and systemic refusal of blacks to cooperate with police and prosecutors, routine jury nullification, and thus the necessity of plea-bargaining to insure convictions, all essentially and largely a corollary of the pro-black, anti-white media and Democratic Party and black-racialist liars, psychotics and demagogues - organizations like BLM and sundry others just as if not even more incendiary and abhorrent, and "leaders" and activists from Barack Obama and Eric Holder to the Rev. Al Sharpton and Jeremiah "god-damn America" Wright- who portray blacks as the victims of "racism" and discrimination, systematic and "institutional," and the "legacy of slavery and segregation."

  2. Murder Is Up Again In 2017, But Not As Much As Last Year

    This is an odd way to characterize what is happening. It makes it sound like the bad thing is subsiding.

    But it’s not. The bad thing (a rising tide of murders) is getting worse; the flood waters are getting higher, not lower. More murders is a bad thing, not a good thing.

    It sounds like they are desperate to find some scrap of good news, and it’s kind of pathetic that they had to hype the second derivative to get it.

    More murders is neutral. It can be good or bad depending on who is murdering whom.

    Regarding statistical noise ....

    It exists. But 3 years in a row is a trend.

    2015 ... about 11%
    2016 ... about 8%
    2017 .... about 4%

    For a total 3 year increase of 25%. This is a big number ... not just noise or an outlier.

    Per the author -- year over year increases tend to increase over the second half of the year. Especially in northern cities. So the YTD 4% is likely to be more like 5% or 6%.

    And also consider:

    1. Better emergency health results in less death and less murder per shooting. Anyone pointing back to rates in the 1990's needs to account for that.

    2. The argument that other crime rates aren't consistent with this increase. This fails because technology is reducing the opportunity for crime. Anti theft systems in vehicles are very hard to defeat. Lists of the most stolen vehicles by make and model have featured Honda and Toyota products from the 2000 era for years. They still run and they don't have contemporary security systems. People carry less cash. Benefits are paid by direct deposit or cards. Cell phones are still popular to steal but hard to get much out of.

    Jeff Asher is a reasonable guy. But he is invested in the notion that it isn't that bad, isn't as bad as the 90's, and isn't anything to be alarmed about. True enough for Whites.

    In Chicago, it is fairly clear that draconian gun ordinances are not being enforced due to pressures to reduce the Black prison population. This can change because Blacks are getting fed up with the mayhem. They are moving out of the worst neighborhoods if they can afford it. And are hardly uniform in their response to things like BLM.

    "Not that small of a number. +4% is a few hundred extra dead bodies."

    In a nation of 330 million, with another 250 million willing to risk death in a Zodiac boat or desert coming to US what's 100 bodies.

    Blacks can't win on crime anyway. If crime goes down they will be gentrified, so what's a few hundred dead people to keep the white invasion at bay?

    And who operates the sugary drinks stores in black neighborhoods? Immigrants. Remember where the Micheal Brown saga started in Ferguson? That immigrant entrepreneur selling the beer and blunts was the killer.

    Steve, you’re looking at this all wrong. You’re concerned because each murder costs the taxpayer millions of dollars, and each near-murder hundreds of thousands in medical bills, police overtime, legal costs, and so on.

    This is a GREAT opportunity to buy up ghetto neighborhoods cheap, cents on the dollar, flood them with illegals to displace Blacks, and then raise rents suddenly and massively leaving only trust fund yuppies with artisinal hipster mustaches and organic arugala to buy out or lease the formerly dirt cheap places.

    South Side Chicago if ethnically cleansed of Blacks would be nearly as valuable as South Central or Harlem. Not to mention Baltimore. Think of all that … Chinese money flowing THERE instead of southern Orange County where miles and miles of empty condos are being built.

    Now get with the program, you deplorable you! There will be no more crime-noticing. Its all about privatizing profits and socializing costs. Madame Hillary needs more gin squeezed from orphan tears, and Mark Podesta more naked pics of pre-teen boys.

Then the railroad and telegraph were the technologies that reduced the 'territory' the outlaw could operate from. Today technology is also reducing the 'territory' the hoodrat can operate in to those cities with huge black ghettoes.

    Old malls are closing, merchandise is better defended, cameras, license plate scanners and even microphone systems to locate the source of gunfire are ubiquitous. The hoodrat is being confined and stymied in his ability to get anything of value from legal businesses forcing him to prey on other hoodrats for drugs and cash. Gang rivalry is the other casus belli for street murders and it too is being reduced geographically to the heart of the ghetto and its outposts, the rap nightclub.

    Crime is becoming more white collar and beyond the ability of the hoodrat to commit. You can steal more with a pen ( or computer) than with a gun. At some point, perhaps when cash becomes limited to small denomination bills or outlawed altogether and marijuana legalized it will even dry up the trade in illegal narcotics making that the preserve of licensed professionals too. The days of the ghetto gunman maybe as numbered as those of the Western outlaw and the Depression era bank robber.

    You're very optimistic. Theft continues in strange ways: the loss of catalytic converters, copper wires, credit card numbers, home burglary, storage units. All that list came from friends and acquaintances who have been robbed over the last few years.

    It seems to be easier to sell contraband now with flea markets and Craigslist. Plus, the police will do nothing to help the victims of theft recover their possessions, or even to pursue the thieves. Again, of the list I gave, none of those people got their stuff back and no one was arrested for any of the crimes.

    Now, when it comes to murder and shootings in black cities, I think what is more likely to happen is that the worst offenders will eventually eliminate each other. They will wind up being dead, in prison, or in wheelchairs. This will bring the numbers down more than law and order.

    Sixteen-year-old held on suspicion of GBH and robbery after police say one of five victims suffered ‘life-changing’ injuries

    https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2017/jul/14/police-investigate-acid-attacks-east-london

    I think I used to read about acid attacks in India Pakistan. But maybe my inner bigot is surfacing again. But I have to think random acid attacks on groups of people make a city less walkable.

    Conditions have gotten worse for the majority of blacks after eight years of Obama excepting that percent who benefit from affirmative action and set-asides. It’s rather obvious and the list can easily be recited. But try telling that to the average black, they’ll freak out on you. There’s not much any one can do to make them understand things which are right in front of their nose, it’s a total waste of time. It might be best to ignore a group that’s incapable of putting two and two together. Just cart off the bodies and crack down on any spillover into other neighborhoods.

  31. OT – I think I’ve mentioned the number of acid attacks in London, now running at about 300 a year, mainly in the East (i.e. Bangladeshi) part of the city. It used be be ‘just’ applied to erring wives or daughters in that community, now it’s more mainstream score-settling or even random attacks on natives.

    There’s also a huge growth in kicking people off their mopeds* to steal them, this is ‘the usual suspects’ here – there’s a lot of crime committed by moped boys – shop raids, handbag snatches etc.

    The two have now come together, this was main BBC news this morning. Squirting acid in a delivery driver’s face to steal a £500 scooter, then going down the road and doing it again, and again. What sort of people could do this? Alas we know the answer.

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-london-40604002

    In other related news, North London streets taken over by drug gangs while grime/bashment/whatever festival takes place. These are million pound houses, but it won’t buy safety.

    http://www.hackneygazette.co.uk/news/crime-court/wireless-festival-terror-of-neighbours-as-finsbury-park-streets-taken-over-by-gangs-1-5104281

    “The main thing is drug dealing. It was absolutely rampant throughout the weekend. You see boys on mopeds offering kids drugs in the streets. My friend said it was the same in Ambler Road and Wilberforce Road. I think Wireless now has a reputation, and that is getting exploited by these gangs. The streets around the park have become a real nucleus for these dealers to make a lot of money.”

    A Wilberforce Road woman, who didn’t want to give her name after a weekend of intimidation, echoed Ms Anderson’s testimony.

    She said: “The level of aggression in Wilberforce Road was terrifying. It was lawless. Anti-social behaviour was off the scale.

    “There was a gang chase, of about 20 people, running down the road. We asked one of the stewards about it, and he said: ‘I’m not risking getting stabbed.’ And I totally get that.”

    A man, also from Wilberforce Road, told the Gazette he was assaulted by two boys when he confronted them over drug dealing outside his house. He said: “I do not want to exaggerate, but I have to say only the riots in 2011 came close to this. I did not feel safe to go out to the street, especially on the Sunday night. And I have lived in Colombia and Russia, so have seen quite some things.”

    Regarding statistical noise ....

    It exists. But 3 years in a row is a trend.

    2015 ... about 11%
    2016 ... about 8%
    2017 .... about 4%

    For a total 3 year increase of 25%. This is a big number ... not just noise or an outlier.

    Per the author -- year over year increases tend to increase over the second half of the year. Especially in northern cities. So the YTD 4% is likely to be more like 5% or 6%.

    And also consider:

    1. Better emergency health results in less death and less murder per shooting. Anyone pointing back to rates in the 1990's needs to account for that.

    2. The argument that other crime rates aren't consistent with this increase. This fails because technology is reducing the opportunity for crime. Anti theft systems in vehicles are very hard to defeat. Lists of the most stolen vehicles by make and model have featured Honda and Toyota products from the 2000 era for years. They still run and they don't have contemporary security systems. People carry less cash. Benefits are paid by direct deposit or cards. Cell phones are still popular to steal but hard to get much out of.

    Jeff Asher is a reasonable guy. But he is invested in the notion that it isn't that bad, isn't as bad as the 90's, and isn't anything to be alarmed about. True enough for Whites.

    In Chicago, it is fairly clear that draconian gun ordinances are not being enforced due to pressures to reduce the Black prison population. This can change because Blacks are getting fed up with the mayhem. They are moving out of the worst neighborhoods if they can afford it. And are hardly uniform in their response to things like BLM.

    [Blacks are] hardly uniform in their response to things like BLM.

    I’d beg to differ, their voting patterns tell a different story. It’s the same with violent Muslims and Muslims in general, etc., they’d rather their co-patriots not be violent, but in the end they really don’t care.

    Legend has it that the days of the Western outlaw ended with the coming of 'civilization' to the frontier towns. Then the railroad and telegraph were the technologies that reduced the 'territory' the outlaw could operate from. Today technology is also reducing the 'territory' the hoodrat can operate in to those cities with huge black ghettoes.

    Old malls are closing, merchandise is better defended, cameras, license plate scanners and even microphone systems to locate the source of gunfire are ubiquitous. The hoodrat is being confined and stymied in his ability to get anything of value from legal businesses forcing him to prey on other hoodrats for drugs and cash. Gang rivalry is the other casus belli for street murders and it too is being reduced geographically to the heart of the ghetto and its outposts, the rap nightclub.

    Crime is becoming more white collar and beyond the ability of the hoodrat to commit. You can steal more with a pen ( or computer) than with a gun. At some point, perhaps when cash becomes limited to small denomination bills or outlawed altogether and marijuana legalized it will even dry up the trade in illegal narcotics making that the preserve of licensed professionals too. The days of the ghetto gunman maybe as numbered as those of the Western outlaw and the Depression era bank robber.

    You’re very optimistic. Theft continues in strange ways: the loss of catalytic converters, copper wires, credit card numbers, home burglary, storage units. All that list came from friends and acquaintances who have been robbed over the last few years.

    It seems to be easier to sell contraband now with flea markets and Craigslist. Plus, the police will do nothing to help the victims of theft recover their possessions, or even to pursue the thieves. Again, of the list I gave, none of those people got their stuff back and no one was arrested for any of the crimes.

    Now, when it comes to murder and shootings in black cities, I think what is more likely to happen is that the worst offenders will eventually eliminate each other. They will wind up being dead, in prison, or in wheelchairs. This will bring the numbers down more than law and order.

    I believe that simple theft must be considered a low-priority, victimless crime by most police departments. Last year my car was stolen out of my driveway at night and two days later it was found, wrecked and upside down, ten miles away. Sifting through the debris in the car with gloved hands, I recovered two cell phones. One had a dead battery and the other, an iPhone, had been deactivated. I had the necessary charger for the first and was able to get the name of its owner off his facebook account. I turned the name and both phones over to the police, knowing that they could get the Apple phone opened if they wanted. I never heard anything from them. Six months later my insurance company called to say the case was closed. The police had done nothing.

  36. This post is yet another example of Steve being shocked – shocked – to find that blacks aren’t acting like whites.

    Steve, I want you to recite this phrase each morning: “African Americans are not whites in blackface. They are overwhelmingly, well, African and will behave as such if allowed.”

    Being a kind man, you have a serious issue with the last two words, “if allowed.” Because it will save lives and help many blacks, you want whites to impose artificial controls on blacks. Understandable from a humanitarian standpoint, but problematic in at least two ways.

    First, as much as whites controlling the less wholesome urges of blacks may benefit blacks (and whites), you are ultimately imposing a social order designed for whites on another people, which is unfair. I don’t think that whites would be very happy if the Japanese came over and clamped down on our way of life because it was so much more violent than their own.

    You’re an imperialist. To be honest, I don’t really too much of an issue with that other than it usually doesn’t end well.

    Second, artificial controls of this size can’t last. Sure I can hold my kid in mid-air so that she defies gravity, but sooner or later, I have to put her down. Blacks are pretty damn big, so we whites can only hold them up so long.

    Blacks screaming and yelling at one another and eventually pulling out a gun and shooting is just what they do. It’s neither good nor bad in the same way a lion chasing down a gazelle is neither good nor bad. It’s just nature.

    Look at murder rates in Africa or Jamaica or Haiti. Are those Obama’s fault?

    Sure, black leaders can push those numbers up and down at the margin, but the real question is how intrusive will be the artificial white constraints – policing, sentencing length, etc.

    Obama may have riled up some ghetto blacks, but they likely would have killed each other at some point anyway. He probably just pushed forward some murders. No, the problem isn’t Obama (though he is giant DB), it’s nature.

    The best that whites can do is limit black violence to black communities. Lions killing gazelles may be nature, but that doesn’t mean you should let lions wander around your neighborhood.

    The success of most surgical procedures has a direct correlation to how many the surgeon has performed. The best trauma centers get the most traumatized patients. In Boston, serious trauma victims are usually not brought to Massachusetts General, a Harvard University teaching hospital and one of the premier hospitals in the country, but to Boston University affiliated Boston Medical Center, reputed to be the best trauma center in New England and hard by the vibrant areas of the city that give them so much business.

    The other correlation to look for here, IMHO, is the death rate from automobile accidents. They have been in steady decline for the past 20+ years (though 2015 was a bizarre outlier).
