People underestimate the explosion of violence in 2020 (and presumably 2021) because of the "mostly peaceful protests" meme as CNN has put it. Police were eating donuts while anarchists & BLM were given control of inner cities to attack the working and middle class.
The number of murders in the United States jumped by nearly 30% in 2020 compared with the previous year in the largest single-year increase ever recorded in the country, according to official FBI statistics released Monday.
The data shows 21,570 homicides in the U.S. in 2020, which is a staggering 4,901 more than in 2019. The tally makes clear — in concrete terms — just how violent last year was.
