How Bad Is Philly? Worse Than Chicago

Posted on | January 4, 2021 | 1 Comment

Yesterday I took notice of the awful crime situation in Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s Chicago, where homicides increased 55% last year.

However, as bad as Chicago is — and frankly, I can’t imagine why anyone would want to live in that Democrat-controlled hellhole — Philadelphia is actually worse. Under Democrat Mayor Jim Kenney, violent crime in Philadelphia, which was already worse than Chicago, increased more than 40% in 2020. More people were murdered in Philly last year “than in all of 2013 and 2014 combined”:

The only time more people were slain in the city was in 1990, when police reported 500 homicides as violence surged alongside an intensifying crack-cocaine epidemic.

The media would have you believe that crimes other than homicide have not increased, but Dana Pico is not buying that claim:

Murder is a crime of evidence; dead bodies are very difficult of which to dispose or hide, and they get found. But rape, assaults which don’t result in hospitalization, robberies, etc, are crimes of reporting; if the victims don’t report them, then as far as the police, as far as the statistics are concerned, they didn’t happen.
And with Larry Krasner’s refusal to prosecute seriously the ‘little’ crimes, with the black community hating the police, and with conviction rates so low, it is more probable that other crimes are simply being reported less frequently than it is that fewer crimes are being committed. When your city is stuck with a District Attorney like Mr Krasner, who doesn’t believe in prosecuting criminals, or sentencing them harshly when they are prosecuted and convicted, what reason is there to report that you were robbed?

When you vote for Democrats, you vote for crime. But don’t worry. If you get murdered in Philadelphia, you can continue voting for Democrats after you’re dead. They’re “inclusive” like that.
