Under Trump, the crime rate falls

Is it the self-deportation of so many illegal aliens?

Is it the rise in full-time jobs?

Is it realization that for the first time in eight years, law enforcement has a friend inside 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue?

Maybe President Trump has nothing to do with the drop in the crime rate, just as he has nothing to do with the rise in the stock market or the collapse of media credibility.

Oh, our first hurricanes in a dozen years are definitely on him -- as are the racial division, the gender gap, and the Cavaliers losing the NBA championship.

At any rate, the Hill reported, "US projected to have second-lowest crime rate since 1990."

From the Hill:
A study published by the Brennan Center for Justice at New York University School of Law surveyed data from the 30 largest cities in the country to determine that the U.S. is on track in 2017 for the second-lowest crime rate since 1990, above only 2013. Using historical trends, the authors predict that the 2017 overall crime rate will be just under 4,000 crimes per 100,000 people.
The drop is credited largely to significant reductions in several of America's largest cities, including a 25.6 percent decrease in Detroit, a 20.5 percent drop in Houston and a 19.1 percent drop in New York.
Another key finding of the study was that Chicago's murder rate, which is the highest in the country, is projected to drop this year by 2.4 percent. In 2016, 762 people were murdered in the city, compared to 472 that have been reported so far in 2017.
The decline of the Black Lives Matter movement after it failed to deliver a Democratic Party victory last fall may gave something to do with this.

In 2014 and 2015, this movement rioted in Ferguson, Missouri, and in Baltimore. But the aftermath has seen the public shun Black Lives Matter and its supporters.

I have noticed the movement has quietly shut down.

Antifa is following it out the door, by the way.

Violent protest never works.

  1. I would say it is a combination of all of the above. Also, it must have given the violent Lefties the heebie jeebies to see photos of police departments taking possession of military vehicles and riot control gear. I believe any further violence on their part will be very small scale, extremely localized, and that they will beat their little feet to get away from the scene as fast as they can. - Elric

  2. The only reason the communist "Antifa" was allowed to violently riot and beat people is because they were enabled by the mayors & police departments in certain cities. No surprise to me that these cities are all Democrat-run.

    Those same mayors & police chiefs are now finding out that normal people are on to their little game. I've heard believable accounts that Federal agencies are taking an interest, and are accumulating evidence; it wouldn't break my heart to find that (say) the Mayor of Berkeley gets indicted for arranging a riot!

    1. Dems and lefties (but I repeat myself) just love riots. They must, since they allow them to happen and keep on happening, with no attempt to stop them.

  3. Except in California where criminals have been released to commit crimes, idiot LA county voters passed prop HHH-$1.2 billon for"Homeless" housing. A magnet for lowlife from all over the country. Need to leave.....

  4. They're killing each other off.


  6. Trump is one lucky bastard. Obama, however, was unlucky.

    That must be it.

    Everything is "unexpected" when you're clueless.
