Lockdown Murders: US Homicide Rate Skyrockets During COVID Pandemic

While the mainstream media, along with scions in Silicon Valley and World Economic Forum – all sing the virtues of lockdown as a wonderful opportunity for kick-starting their plan for a Great Reset, the rest of the common vassals outside of the digital castle walls are not having the same utopian experience envisioned by Klaus Schwab, Bill Gates, Jeff Bezos and Mark Zuckerberg. As it turns out, violent crime has risen during lockdowns, as more and more normal people struggle to cope with the mental challenges brought on by the economic fallout stemming from governments’ disastrous pandemic measures and shutdown orders. 

According research conducted by the London School of Economics (LSE) and Political Science, violent crime and drug offenses in Britain have actually risen above pre-pandemic levels in deprived areas.

In the United States, data collected during the last 12 months has revealed an even more disturbing picture – one which the political and media establishment is trying to bury, because too much discussion of thus type of ‘human interest’ story will damage the carefully crafted public relations effort designed to glorify lockdowns and keep societies and businesses in a permanent state of economic turmoil.

The number are staggering, and are likely to get worse in 2021.

Murder rates saw a “historic” increase in 2020 compared to 2019, with more than 1,200 additional killings year-over-year in a sample of 34 American cities, according to a study released Monday.

“The coronavirus pandemic, continuing incidents of police violence, and rising homicide and violent crime rates each pose massive policy challenges in their own right, but the interplay between them creates even more difficult decisions for policymakers,” states a report from the National Commission of COVID-19 and Criminal Justice (NCCCJ). “Despite this difficulty, leaders at all levels of government should take bold action in responding to all three crises.”

Homicide rates jumped by 30% from 2019 to 2020, while gun assault and aggravated assault rates climbed 8% and 6%, respectively, experts found.

“Homicide rates were higher during every month of 2020 relative to rates from the previous year,” the report states, calling the 30% surge “a large and troubling increase that has no modern precedent.”

Experts analyzed the data from as many as 34 U.S. cities, which varied in size and population, for year-over-year changes in 10 different areas of crime for the year-end update of an NCCCJ report called Pandemic, Unrest, Crime, and Violence in U.S. Cities. In addition to the three offenses listed above, the report examined the rates of domestic violence, robbery, residential burglary, nonresidential burglary, larceny, motor vehicle theft and drug offenses.

The rates of homicides, motor vehicle thefts, gun assaults and aggravated assaults rose year-over-year. Meanwhile, those related to drug offenses, larcenies, nonresidential burglaries, residential burglaries and robberies all decreased during the pandemic and during the year as a whole compared to 2019, analysts found.
