This was an interesting article, really getting bad in some cities. What do you think? Full article: https://www.washingtonpost.com/news...year-in-more-than-two-dozen-major-u-s-cities/ ‘We have a problem.’ Homicides are up again this year in more than two dozen major U.S. cities. The number of homicides increased in the first months of 2016 in more than two dozen major U.S. cities, going up in places that also saw spiking violence last year, according to statistics released Friday. The increases were small in some areas, and many big cities also had declines. But the numbers were particularly grim for a handful of places — Chicago, Los Angeles, Dallas and Las Vegas — where the number of homicides increased in the first three months of 2016 after killings and other violent crimes also went up in 2015. “I was very worried about it last fall, and I am in many ways more worried, because the numbers are not only going up, they’re continuing to go up in most of those cities faster than they were going up last year,” FBI Director James B. Comey, who got an early look at the numbers, said Wednesday. “Something is happening.” Comey also again suggested that greater scrutiny of police had possibly changed the way officers and communities interact, which he said may be a factor in the uptick in homicides, an idea he voiced to much disagreement last year. He said the group began collecting these statistics only last year after police chiefs in Washington, Chicago and other cities expressed concerns about what they were seeing in their communities. There had not been a need to gather this data before because crime had been falling for two decades, Darrel Stephens, executive director of the Major Cities Chiefs Association, said. When Comey previously made similar remarks, he drew pushback from some law enforcement officials, civil rights activists and the White House. After he said in October that the “crisis of violent crime” could be linked to “a chill wind blowing through American law enforcement,” President Obama said there was no evidence to suggest officers were pulling back, and Attorney General Loretta E. Lynch said the same.
