Mexico’s “Citizens’ Council for Public Security and Criminal Justice” recently compiled a list of the 50 most violent cities in the world, and it is quite shocking.
It is important to note that this list did not include cities that are within a “war zone,” and many cities simply do not report their murder rate.
The United States has the disturbing honor of having four cities make the list. Detroit, New Orleans, Baltimore and St. Louis now have the distinction of being some of the most deadly cities in the world.
The real kicker? All of these cities have been run by democrats for decades!
Homicide rates in America have been declining nationwide, but these cities can’t seem to join that trend thanks to their failed liberal policies and administrations.
These cities also have the distinction of being at the top of the list in terms of high poverty and single family homes. Once again, Democrats at their best (H/T IJ Review).
As we saw in Baltimore recently, the problem lies in failed liberal policies that lead to rampant poverty. Yet the Democrats in charge refuse to take any of the blame and instead blame Republicans, even if they haven’t been in power for decades.
Unfortunately, the citizens of these cities are also partially to blame for this. They continuously elect leaders who do nothing to solve the problems of their cities.
Take New Orleans for example. You’d think that after 145 years of Democrat control, and 145 years of rampant poverty, the people of New Orleans would realize something isn’t working.
Unfortunately, they keep insisting that Democrats know what is right and will fix everything. Maybe in another 145 years they will — assuming there is even a New Orleans left by then.
