Admission Of Failure? Democratic Cities Stop Reporting Crime Stats To FBI – ZeroHedge 6/11/24


The Biden administration’s statisticians at the Bureau of Labor Statistics have painted a rosy economic picture for the job market. Yet, voters know damn well the economy is in a persistent inflation storm sparked by Bidenomics. That’s why President Biden’s reelection odds are sinking by the month. The most recent BLS jobs report shows just how absurd these reports get by the month, and there is no shame by the gov’t statisticians as working poor Americans struggle to pay rent and put food on the table.

Context about the political BLS is crucial to understanding that data massaging doesn’t stop there. The White House has recently unleashed its propaganda cannons, claiming nationwide crime has plunged to a half-century low. The problem with this narrative is that it’s at odds with imploding progressive cities that do not uphold law and order and fail to arrest and prosecute criminals. Plus, on top of this all, Democrats have flooded the nation with ten million illegal aliens.

Let’s begin with MSNBC’s Kyle Griffin, who posted on X the latest FBI crime stats that show murder, rape, robbery, theft, and property crime has plummeted across the board nationwide.

The FBI just announced that crime has plummeted in the first quarter of 2024:

According to the report:
Murder decreased by 26.4% Rape decreased by 25.7%
Robbery decreased by 17.8%
Aggravated assault decreased by 12.5%
Reported property crime decreased by 15.1% — Kyle Griffin (@kylegriffin1) June 11, 2024

The data is at odds with reality. Recently, White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre touted: “Violent crime is at a near 50-year low…”

Responding to Griffin’s post on X, Red State’s Bonchie said, “Pretty amazing what happens when left-wing cities just stop reporting crime to the FBI.”

Guess what happens when cities, including major left-wing bastions, just stop reporting crime to the FBI?

Bonchie cited a recent NRA-ILA report explaining how the Crime Prevention Research Center found that “one factor contributing to the ostensible dip in violent crime is that almost 40% of local law enforcement agencies are no longer transmitting their information to the national Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) database.”

You heard that correctly. 

Violent crime across America must be so out of control in failed leftist metro areas that radical leftists in local governments just stopped reporting crime data to the FBI. This is an admission the woke utopia of criminal and social justice reforms is an utter disaster.

Here’s more from the NRA-ILA report:…
