Pretty soon many people in third-world cities will be laughing at the condition of some American liberal icons.

So much failing liberal cities have deluded themselves into thinking they vibrant, utopian paradise. When in fact they declining rapidly into third-world status with some of the world's highest homicide rates.

The city of St. Louis website shows a city of roses, hugging neighborhoods, beautiful victorian mansions, smiling children where all are happily basking in the garden in the utopia that is St. Louis.

No mention, about how St. Louis has some of the world's highest homicide rates. Many of the countries migrants are escaping from have much, much lower homicide rates than St. Louis.

When in fact, its a city with one of the highest homicide in the world, with a whopping 27 homicides in May alone

The city of Indianapolis is one of a shiny, clean city with pictures of leafy quaint mansions on some of the photos down below.

The reality is the have a homicide a day for 8 days straight and the summer heat hasn't even started yet.

The city of LA website starts with palm trees, lakes and mansions overlooking the skyline. Yet at street level much of the city is piled high with trash, fecal matter and other human waste

Chicago just decided to solve its murder problem by having patrol cars with their lights on drive around aimlessly.

I know that on a per-capita basis, Chicago actually has a far lower rate of shootings and homicides than hundreds of American cities, but still 52 shootings over a weekend with 10 homicides really doesn't seem like solving the problem?

https://www.inquirer.com/news/trento...-20190603.html

For instance, Trenton had 16 shot over the course of a weekend with 80,000 people. So Chicago had less than a tenth of the rate of shootings of Trenton. So maybe the patrol cars with lights on is lowering the number, considering how much lower crime they have in Chicago compared to many other smaller cities.

Guess: if the truth was found out, then the liberal supporters might move elsewhere.
