FBI Crime Report Reveals Massive Surge In Murder Rates In Several Large U.S. Cities

From Zero Hedge:

Earlier this year the Brennan Center for Justice released a report analyzing violent crime data in America’s 30 largest cities for the calendar year of 2015.  While the report noted modest increases in violent crime in Baltimore, Chicago and Washington D.C., it concluded that, on the whole, reports of a national crime wave were premature and unfounded, and that “the average person in a large urban area is safer walking on the street today than he or she would have been at almost any time in the past 30 years.

Now, just a few short months later, the folks at the Brennan Center have updated their study with crime statistics through September 2016 and they’re wishing they could have a “do over” on that previous conclusion after finding that the national murder rate is now projected to increase 31.5% from 2014 to 2016.
