Or maybe 24% hotter. Murders are up 24%, but guess that's not sensational enough for the Post.

Sorry, but a 25% increase year over year is sensational enough on its own. Anyone downplaying it is intellectually dishonest, because it doesn't fit their political utopian narrative.

What is happening cannot be explained with terrestrial reasonings. The real explanation has to do with celestial events. The Neowise Comet is most likely to be at fault for increasing murders of American cities. It's like a full moon with wolves, yet on steroids and crystal meth. They can't help themselves...it's celestial and natural.

Comets are increasing the murder rate. Ok.

aah yes, the old effect of the heavens on human behavior. the classic studies often used to highlight confirmation bias.

btw meth is low on the totem pole of preferred drug abuse in nyc.

Watch what happens bro, the comet will fade away and so will the murders in a few American municipalities. It's all celestial, bro. I hope we don't have another extraterrestrial rock fly by next year, could you imagine? It might turn out to be like the event similar to 12,800 years ago.

Minneapolis has more murders in 2020 than it had for all of last year:

Quote:
A man was shot fatally shortly after sunrise Tuesday in south Minneapolis, marking the city's 49th homicide of the year, authorities said.

Last year, the city logged 48 homicides, said Minneapolis police spokesman John Elder.
Minneapolis's modern low came in 2009, when the city had 18 murders.

Well this is...gruesome. A guy was apparently murdered in the neighborhood after getting out of jail and beating his ex-wife. The details are sketchy, but two neighbors were arrested after tampering with evidence. A man was found buried in concrete in a quasi-tomb in a shed in the backyard. This happened about 500 feet from me.

I've had a strange urge to watch The 'Burbs all day since reading about it.

Minneapolis's modern low came in 2009, when the city had 18 murders.
That last line is the most shocking, to me.

No self-righteous smugness, just shock.

As a Toronto resident.

Minneapolis is just shy of 500,000 people, Toronto is 3,000,000

So if you scaled that that number, Minneapolis 'modern low', would be 108 homicides which is notably higher than Toronto's worst year ever.

Which included a van attack that killed 10 or 11.

I find it hard to wrap my head around that, let alone a scale homicide total for the current year (49, x 6) would give you 295 homicides.

I honestly think you'd see the military called out if that happened here, and door to door searches for guns.

To realize there are other U.S. cities where the problems are that much worse......
