Excerpt from Zerohedge
The Brennan Center for Justice has just updated its annual crime report, and the surge in violent crime and murder rates across the country is somewhat staggering. While the Brennan Center continues to downplay the YoY increases, saying “concerns about a national crime wave are still premature,” the numbers seem to paint a different story with murder rates in the largest 30 U.S. cities expected to increase 15.5% in 2016. Meanwhile, that number would be over 17% if the study reflected the most recent 2016 Chicago murder estimate of 800.

Basically, the more niggers you have the more crime you have.
LOL. How rude. The next comment says the same thing, only much more politely.

For 2014, the percentage of the population that is black by state has a correlation of .78 with the homicide rate. That means that roughly 60% of the variance in homicide rates from state to state is accounted for by blacks. I bet the correlation will be even higher for 2016. The biggest predictors of violent crime are not median income or anything like that. They’re race/ethnicity.
