    Nine of the ten cities with the highest murder rate increases, hosted sustained Black Lives Matter protests and riots during 2020, the Daily Caller reported.

    In New York City, the number of murders has risen by 41 percent compared to the previous year. The number of people shot has more than doubled from 2019, almost a 14-year high.

    Chicago, however, is worse than NYC. The number of murders in Chicago for 2020 is almost twice as high as the number of murders in NYC.

    “We’re over 700 homicides by gun in Chicago this year and close to 800 total homicides for the year,” Chicago FOP President John Catanzara told Fox News. “It’s reaching historic levels, and this when the city council and the mayor’s budget just cut over 600 jobs from the police department’s budget when crime is soaring. It’s ridiculous.”

    In Portland, the number of shootings is up by 116 percent compared to last year, accoring to Fox News: “As of Christmas Eve, this year’s shootings had surpassed last year’s by more than 116 percent, with 393 shootings reported in all of 2019.”

    In south Florida, the number of murders in Miami-Dade County has already broken the old record with 272 killings.

    In Philadelphia, this year the city is has had at least 490 murders. Murder rates are rising in cities that are governed by Democrats.

    Compared to last year, violent carjackings in Minneapolis were up 537 percent last month. Minneapolis along with other major cities have decreased police funding in the wake of BLM protests.
