Interesting how the media keeps saying that America's largest cities are fully safe now from all the gentrification.

City after city after city having double-digit increase in homicide rates this year.

Oddly, it looks to be using older information in it's projections based on a December 20th report.

For instance, it projects 76 homicides in Columbus when they are up to 100 already

http://nbc4i.com/2016/12/18/cpd-inve...e-of-the-year/

It also projects 97 in Louisville, when it has already had 113 homicides.

It also projects 180 in Memphis, which has already recorded 222 homicides.

When in all of history has anyone said any city is "fully safe"??

Another non-story from hatecrowds.

The Brennan Center's projections make no sense, at least in the case of Columbus. There's no reason why Columbus should have 76 homicides in 2016, I don't know where they are getting their data from.

Here are actual numbers for Columbus in the past years

2015-99
2014-91
2013-92
2012-90
2011-93
2010-105
2009-83
2008-109

More unneeded fear mongering. I know that short of something absolutely insane, my county of 1.2 million will have fewer homicides this year compared to the last two years.
