The numbers are in, and the debate is over. Our nation is in the midst of one of the worst crime waves in American history, thanks in large part to the Democratic Party’s criminal-leniency policies.
The numbers are in, and the debate is over. Our nation is in the midst of one of the worst crime waves in American history.
New nationwide data from the Federal Bureau of Investigation reveals that last year the number of murders rose by 29 percent, drug overdose deaths increased 30 percent, and the number of gang-related killings skyrocketed more than 55 percent. To put this carnage into context, a 29 percent increase in murder isnâ€™t simply bad, itâ€™s the worst single-year increase in American history. Similarly, the drugs flooding into our communities arenâ€™t only deadly, they are the deadliest drugs ever sold. For the first time ever, over 100,000 Americans lost their lives to drugs and homicide in 2020.
