My Taki’s Magazine column from earlier this week included me looking up the increase in murders in 22 states (or D.C.) cited by a Democrat group Third Way that claimed that crime went down in 2020 over 2019 when you include the falling number of arrests for shooting craps in the alley or whatever.

On the other hand, murders were up 31% in their selection of states for which murder counts are on-line. Here are my totals:

2019 2020 Chg
South Dakota 16 37 131%
Wisconsin 185 302 63%
Minnesota 117 185 58%
Nebraska 45 71 58%
Kansas 130 193 48%
Washington 206 302 47%
New York 570 831 46%
Idaho 28 39 39%
Tennessee 498 682 37%
Michigan 549 750 37%
Arkansas 232 310 34%
Colorado 227 301 33%
Montana 38 50 32%
California 1679 2202 31%
Nevada 141 184 30%
New Jersey 262 329 26%
Virginia 428 528 23%
North Dakota 26 32 23%
Rhode Island 26 32 23%
DC 166 198 19%
Florida 1120 1285 15%
Massachusetts 167 168 1%
Sum 6856 9011 31%

Murders were up the most in the North-Central region near where George Floyd died.

The only state without a big increase in murders was Massachusetts.

  1. Karens aren’t reporting trespassing, assault, robbery, or burglary anymore, lest they lose their jobs if not go to jail. Cops don’t arrest people destined to be released with a slap on the risk, at the cost of losing their job. So, crime is down if people stopped focusing on those stupid bullet-filled bodies.

    Sadly the problem will not go away.

    A few unarmed black men are killed by cops every year, usually for valid reasons. Every couple of years, there will be a killing whose reasons are, or appear to be, invalid. An aspiring lawyer will be shot after mostly peacefully robbing a store. Perhaps the episode will be filmed.

    The problem is that the media, politicians, white agitators, and the black community itself, cannot process such an event appropriately. Instead of recognizing that the wheels of justice will turn, and if the cop is guilty he will get 30 years behind bars, there is rioting, looting, and murder. And after that, the wheels of justice do indeed turn, and if the cop is guilty he will get 30 years behind bars.

    At some point even Democratic politicians must recognize that the rioting does not achieve anything useful.

    Abimael Guzman, the leader of Peru's Shining Path insurgency, died recently. Some commentators pointed out that the tens of thousands who died in the insurgency mostly belonged to the group that Guzman claimed to represent (poor rural workers). The same sad fact is true of BLM: among the thousands of excess murders of the BLM era, the victims were nearly all black.

    Lol, just kidding! It's blacks. One percent of the population and about a third of all murderers. Gives new meaning to "we the 99%" , "overthrow the oppression of the 1%" and all that.

    Hey, on the bright side, none of the murders were "hate crimes" according to the attorney general. So only love murders in SD. They can put it on their license plates.

    Whites, on average, were more likely than Blacks to hold full-time jobs and worked more hours per week. The average salary for Whites who had full-time jobs was \$82,170. For African American college graduates who had full-time jobs, the average salary was \$65,104.

  13. While murder rates are up double and triple digits, the raw number of murders is still small given the size of the country and take place rather exclusively among sacred Blacks. The well-meaning, dull-witted, white liberal middle class will shrug off these numbers.
    Take a longer view. The human race is being tested, constantly tested, by reality. The current test is whether a nation of people smart enough to land on the moon, wise enough to found a Republic, and magnanimous enough to charitably launch the humanitarian revolution, are also skeptical, hard-nosed, and practical enough to tell George Floyd to fuck off.
    The short view answer is no, we are not. We fail the test and the Chinese will take it next.
    But, perhaps, the test is not over. I still believe in my people.

    "Hip replacement? I want my diversity"

    https://i.postimg.cc/28F6G44C/no-hip-replacement.jpg

    But otherwise the NHS is a bloated organization which distrusts its own people on the ground, needs to be "protected from COVID", is onboard with Project Fear, is perpetually underfunded and tells whitey he is the real racist.

    100% Soviet goodness.

    Apart from that, Boris' "salary" is probably not capped at GBP 157'332. He probably secretly has a St. Bernard with a "donations for Boris" barrel around its neck making the rounds.

    Can the perpetually underfunded NHS please just look after our health rather than wasting time and money lecturing us about race?


    Yet it seems that not everyone who works for the NHS has their mind focussed on the pandemic. Whereas the frontline workers are run ragged looking after the people who are ill, the overpaid, politically correct, non-jobbers have had other things on their minds. Let me introduce you to Aishnine Benjamin, the Equality, Diversity and Inclusion lead at the Nursing and Midwifery Council.

    Over the weekend, Ms. Benjamin found time away from saving us all from Covid to write a blog post that has caused a bit of controversy. Her blog post, titled “Dear white people in the UK”, includes recommendations for us to read up on ‘white privilege’ and ready ourselves for political discussions about race at work.

    Under the subheading “for white people”, she is even kind enough to provide a reading list for us so we can re-educate ourselves. She wrote, “there are some quick reads that summarise for a UK audience, how a poor understanding of the history of race and what racism really is, has created our current structurally racist systems.” Interestingly, the first book Ms. Benjamin recommends is by a Guardian journalist who wants to tear down Nelson’s column because she thinks it is racist. Enough said, really.
     


    The NHS is the fifth-largest employer in the world, with only the US Department of Defense, Walmart, the Chinese People’s Liberation Army and McDonald’s having more employees. I have been saying for years that way too many non-jobbers are employed by the NHS and that their salaries should be redirected on to the front line. For uttering such heresies, I was cast as the devil incarnate by the Left – but you know what, I was right then, and I am right now, and people like Aishnine Benjamin prove my point perfectly. Case closed.

    Not sure about that, for riot damage is so overt you'd think an insurance adjuster visit would suffice, especially in an area known to be trashed. There are no formalities involved in the one insurance claim I've made in my life due to it being a natural disaster. We also don't know how many police departments didn't take reports, or had them done by the store owner and mailed or emailed to the department.

    I wouldn't put too much stock in fluctuations in the stats of low murder states like South Dakota, at least in the short term. I live in a Midwestern city of a quarter million (not far from SD) where three additional murders in a year can increase the city's murder rate by 60%. (Yes, our murders are committed at a disproportionately high rate by blacks.) As a result, I've seen the % increase/decrease in murder fluctuate wildly while still being consistently under ten murders a year.

    I noticed in your PDF link that the highest number of assaults on police officers was in Rapid City, which is much a smaller city than Sioux Falls. It so happens that I was in Rapid City last week and I overheard an local talking about an increase he'd seen in disorderly conduct. He seemed to think that this increase was part of a trend, and that local bars and restaurants not monitoring their customers' alcohol intake is part of the problem.

    Implicit in all of this is that the Sturgis motorcycle rally may be the actual root of the problem, and probably has been for years. It's nowhere near as bad as it used to be, but a late friend of mine was a lawyer in Rapid City, and he told me that the Sturgis rally was a boon to his business (increase in charges for assault, disorderly conduct, etc.) However, I don't know if the rally happened in 2020 (due to Covid.)

There are no formalities involved in the one insurance claim I’ve made in my life due to it being a natural disaster.

    I was perfectly prepared for my original comment to cite "the law of small numbers" and dismiss SD stats as basically random noise, but the trends track pretty well onto what seems to be happening everywhere else.

    South Dakota doubled the number of black murderers between 2019 and 2020, and whereas in 2019 3/4 of the murders by blacks were intra-racial, in 2020 5/8 of the murders were extra-racial, so all of the increase of murders by blacks in SD were against non-black victims.

    Zero murders due to Sturgis Rally, which is kind of surprising for an event that nearly doubles the state's popultion and draws from some notoriously Deplorable demographics.

    Most of the SD's murders are in Sioux Falls or Rapid City, so SD crime is an "urban" problem, as much as they have urbs. And like most "urban" problems, that's really a euphemism for "black". All but one of the murders by blacks were in Sioux Falls or Rapid City, the two largest towns in SD. If you take out all the murders by blacks (which would be the same as reducing blacks murdering to their percentage of the population), not only would there be a double-digit percentage murder drop, but the murders would be much closer to randomly distributed by population location, rather than being disproportionately concentrated in "urban" environments (Rapid City pop 78000, "urban" lol). I guess criminal blacks just don't like being anywhere you have to be self-sufficient. Even out in the wilderness of South Dakota, the only place they can think of to go is to the meager cities.

    Yet it seems that not everyone who works for the NHS has their mind focussed on the pandemic. Whereas the frontline workers are run ragged looking after the people who are ill, the overpaid, politically correct, non-jobbers have had other things on their minds. Let me introduce you to Aishnine Benjamin, the Equality, Diversity and Inclusion lead at the Nursing and Midwifery Council.

    Over the weekend, Ms. Benjamin found time away from saving us all from Covid to write a blog post that has caused a bit of controversy. Her blog post, titled “Dear white people in the UK”, includes recommendations for us to read up on ‘white privilege’ and ready ourselves for political discussions about race at work.

    Under the subheading “for white people”, she is even kind enough to provide a reading list for us so we can re-educate ourselves. She wrote, “there are some quick reads that summarise for a UK audience, how a poor understanding of the history of race and what racism really is, has created our current structurally racist systems.” Interestingly, the first book Ms. Benjamin recommends is by a Guardian journalist who wants to tear down Nelson’s column because she thinks it is racist. Enough said, really.

    The NHS is the fifth-largest employer in the world, with only the US Department of Defense, Walmart, the Chinese People’s Liberation Army and McDonald’s having more employees. I have been saying for years that way too many non-jobbers are employed by the NHS and that their salaries should be redirected on to the front line. For uttering such heresies, I was cast as the devil incarnate by the Left – but you know what, I was right then, and I am right now, and people like Aishnine Benjamin prove my point perfectly. Case closed.

    Steve’s talking about Tarantino’s “Once Upon …” on Twitter. Tonight I stumbled across a free movie on my Roku streaming dongle, and I really liked it, Under the Silver Lake. Wikipedia calls it a neo-noir black comedy thriller film, set in Los Angeles in 2011. It started off reminding me of Brian de Palma’s Body Double, and then segued into David Lynch’s Mulholland Drive, or Mulholland Falls a bit too.

    The comedy is not overt but rather quick, surprising turns that make you laugh before going back to noir thriller.

    All kinds of L.A. landmarks are involved in the plot. The set decoration has lots of Los Angeles paraphernalia.

    After viewing it, I went online and discovered that the main female character is Elvis Presley’s granddaughter. Another character is played by David Letterman’s Lyle the Intern guy. Apparently the movie has had a second life as a cult favorite, with all kinds of secret meanings being discovered, some of which are probably only in the minds of the fans, although a cryptographer consulted on the film.

    There were some iStevey details in the four Minnesotans found dead in a Wisconsin cornfield.

    … a tip from a witness who said he saw two Black men near the Sheridan Town Hall between 10:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. Sunday. One of them wore a "I am black history" T-shirt, the witness said.

    A sheriff's deputy went to the Bridgestop gas station in Wheeler to view surveillance video and saw images of a Black man in a "I am black history" shirt pull up to the station in a black Nissan Rogue. The man walked into the gas station, bought some items and exited.

    A black Mercedes that matched the one found in the cornfield pulled up to the Nissan Rogue. The two drivers appeared to exchange something, then drove off.
     

    Suspects: Darren Lee McWright (a/k/a Darren Osborne) and his son, Antoine “Tweezy” Suggs

    Deceased in cornfield: Matthew Pettus, Loyace Foreman III, Jasmine C. Sturm , and Nitosha Flug-Presley; each had been shot in the head.

    It hasn’t been determined yet whether the shootings occurred in Minnesota or Wisconsin.

    A sheriff’s deputy went to the Bridgestop gas station in Wheeler…

    A few weeks earlier, a drunk from the next town over made too wide a turn at the intersection and slammed through the front right at the register. Some places have all the luck!

    No major injuries. The station was back in business in no time because a) many in the countryside are handy with woodworking and b) in these moribund villages, there isn’t two of anything except bars.

    But otherwise the NHS is a bloated organization which distrusts its own people on the ground, needs to be "protected from COVID", is onboard with Project Fear, is perpetually underfunded and tells whitey he is the real racist.

    100% Soviet goodness.

    Apart from that, Boris' "salary" is probably not capped at GBP 157'332. He probably secretly has a St. Bernard with a "donations for Boris" barrel around its neck making the rounds.

    Can the perpetually underfunded NHS please just look after our health rather than wasting time and money lecturing us about race?


    Yet it seems that not everyone who works for the NHS has their mind focussed on the pandemic. Whereas the frontline workers are run ragged looking after the people who are ill, the overpaid, politically correct, non-jobbers have had other things on their minds. Let me introduce you to Aishnine Benjamin, the Equality, Diversity and Inclusion lead at the Nursing and Midwifery Council.

    Over the weekend, Ms. Benjamin found time away from saving us all from Covid to write a blog post that has caused a bit of controversy. Her blog post, titled “Dear white people in the UK”, includes recommendations for us to read up on ‘white privilege’ and ready ourselves for political discussions about race at work.

    Under the subheading “for white people”, she is even kind enough to provide a reading list for us so we can re-educate ourselves. She wrote, “there are some quick reads that summarise for a UK audience, how a poor understanding of the history of race and what racism really is, has created our current structurally racist systems.” Interestingly, the first book Ms. Benjamin recommends is by a Guardian journalist who wants to tear down Nelson’s column because she thinks it is racist. Enough said, really.
     


    The NHS is the fifth-largest employer in the world, with only the US Department of Defense, Walmart, the Chinese People’s Liberation Army and McDonald’s having more employees. I have been saying for years that way too many non-jobbers are employed by the NHS and that their salaries should be redirected on to the front line. For uttering such heresies, I was cast as the devil incarnate by the Left – but you know what, I was right then, and I am right now, and people like Aishnine Benjamin prove my point perfectly. Case closed.

    You know, it hasn’t been that long since “white people in the UK” was a redundant phrase.

    Even now, the numbers there aren’t nearly as bad as in the USA. But old Blighty appears determined to replicate our wreckage, and more than anything their predicament demonstrates how few nation-wreckers are really required, so long as they control the levers of power and information.

    Then they can play their favorite game, which is to turn the weakest links of the native population into robot macrophages designed to subvert that population’s natural immune response, rather than support it.

    Sadly the problem will not go away.

    A few unarmed black men are killed by cops every year, usually for valid reasons. Every couple of years, there will be a killing whose reasons are, or appear to be, invalid. An aspiring lawyer will be shot after mostly peacefully robbing a store. Perhaps the episode will be filmed.

    The problem is that the media, politicians, white agitators, and the black community itself, cannot process such an event appropriately. Instead of recognizing that the wheels of justice will turn, and if the cop is guilty he will get 30 years behind bars, there is rioting, looting, and murder. And after that, the wheels of justice do indeed turn, and if the cop is guilty he will get 30 years behind bars.

    At some point even Democratic politicians must recognize that the rioting does not achieve anything useful.

    Abimael Guzman, the leader of Peru’s Shining Path insurgency, died recently. Some commentators pointed out that the tens of thousands who died in the insurgency mostly belonged to the group that Guzman claimed to represent (poor rural workers). The same sad fact is true of BLM: among the thousands of excess murders of the BLM era, the victims were nearly all black.

The murals conveyed the sacred ideas of our Western secular religion. In case a religious motive is in doubt, the founder of the collective “Artlords” that painted the murals described them as “the soul of Kabul”.

    I wouldn't put too much stock in fluctuations in the stats of low murder states like South Dakota, at least in the short term. I live in a Midwestern city of a quarter million (not far from SD) where three additional murders in a year can increase the city's murder rate by 60%. (Yes, our murders are committed at a disproportionately high rate by blacks.) As a result, I've seen the % increase/decrease in murder fluctuate wildly while still being consistently under ten murders a year.

    I noticed in your PDF link that the highest number of assaults on police officers was in Rapid City, which is much a smaller city than Sioux Falls. It so happens that I was in Rapid City last week and I overheard an local talking about an increase he'd seen in disorderly conduct. He seemed to think that this increase was part of a trend, and that local bars and restaurants not monitoring their customers' alcohol intake is part of the problem.

    Implicit in all of this is that the Sturgis motorcycle rally may be the actual root of the problem, and probably has been for years. It's nowhere near as bad as it used to be, but a late friend of mine was a lawyer in Rapid City, and he told me that the Sturgis rally was a boon to his business (increase in charges for assault, disorderly conduct, etc.) However, I don't know if the rally happened in 2020 (due to Covid.)

    Wisconsin and Minnesota are the real points of interest in Steve's chart, and where the story lies. Kansas is suspicious, too. Nebraska's murder numbers are driven by predominantly black north Omaha, but it may or may not be related to the huge increases in WI and MN.

    I was perfectly prepared for my original comment to cite “the law of small numbers” and dismiss SD stats as basically random noise, but the trends track pretty well onto what seems to be happening everywhere else.

    South Dakota doubled the number of black murderers between 2019 and 2020, and whereas in 2019 3/4 of the murders by blacks were intra-racial, in 2020 5/8 of the murders were extra-racial, so all of the increase of murders by blacks in SD were against non-black victims.

    Zero murders due to Sturgis Rally, which is kind of surprising for an event that nearly doubles the state’s popultion and draws from some notoriously Deplorable demographics.

    Most of the SD’s murders are in Sioux Falls or Rapid City, so SD crime is an “urban” problem, as much as they have urbs. And like most “urban” problems, that’s really a euphemism for “black”. All but one of the murders by blacks were in Sioux Falls or Rapid City, the two largest towns in SD. If you take out all the murders by blacks (which would be the same as reducing blacks murdering to their percentage of the population), not only would there be a double-digit percentage murder drop, but the murders would be much closer to randomly distributed by population location, rather than being disproportionately concentrated in “urban” environments (Rapid City pop 78000, “urban” lol). I guess criminal blacks just don’t like being anywhere you have to be self-sufficient. Even out in the wilderness of South Dakota, the only place they can think of to go is to the meager cities.

    I suspect that self sufficiency is often accompanied by legal gun ownership and people who are rather protective of their property. Not good for criminals. In all the times I've been in Rapid City, however, I've never been worried about some vigilante type blasting me by accident...and rightfully so. Another thing that tends to accompany self-sufficiency is responsible behavior.

Someone has made this point above I’m sure but this is obviously Scandinavian/German “nice” communities with little violent crime getting more blacks and probably more mestizos, thus the large % increase. Fargo and Sioux Falls are being colonized by blacks (a combination of american and somalian blacks from Minnesota??). Illinois blacks are moving across the border into Wisconsin for the better benefits. Places like Idaho and Montana, there’s so little murder there’s nowhere to go but up.
