A mainstream outlet finally ran an in-depth story on the rising crime rates in major cities around the country.
ABC News found that 12 cities in the country are on a record-setting pace for violent crime.
What the report failed to examine in detail is that every city in the report is run by a Democrat mayor.
So far, in 2021, 12 cities in this country have already set annual homicide records… and there are still three weeks left in the year.
Of those cities, five of them are going to break records that were only set last year.
Among those cities are Philadelphia, PA, Austin, TX, Portland, OR, and Indianapolis, IN.
Of the dozen cities that have already surpassed the grim milestones for killings, five topped records that were set or tied just last year. https://t.co/8acZcUdiMj

This year, Chicago is a legitimate war zone, already experiencing 739 homicides (and that has probably increased since I wrote this report).
The city is already up three percent from last year and closing in on the 1970 record of 974 homicides.
Philadelphia is one of the cities that is just obliterating records.
The city has a population of about 1.5 million, yet it has more murders, 521, than New York and Los Angeles.
Philadelphia is ahead of the 2020 pace by 13 percent.
Last year, we should note that Philadelphia broke a homicide record that had stood for three decades.
Philadelphia is important to study here, as its mayor has fully embraced the far left.
Kenney has turned the city into a sanctuary for illegal immigrants and the liberal DA lets off more criminals than he prosecutes, yet he goes on TV to tell the city residents there is no crisis regarding violent crime in the city.
Even with these horrible numbers, I would bet dollars to donuts that the next mayor and DA elected in the city will be Democrats again.
We cannot change this country if voters blindly pull handles for candidates because they have their preferred letter after their name on the ballot.
This will sound harsh, but I have no pity for these cities if voters continue to elect these people to office.
If you want change, stop electing people who openly tout these radical policies that turn major American cities into war zones that make the cities look like the Middle East.
