54% of US Counties Had 0 Murders in 2014; 2% of Counties Had 51%

The sad reality, the cities where murders and crime occur the most all have one stark commonality, which I’ll get to in a minute, but first…

The United States can really be divided up into three types of places. Places where there are no murders, places where there are a few murders, and places where murders are very common.

In 2014, the most recent year that a county level breakdown is available, 54% of counties (with 11% of the population) have no murders. 69% of counties have no more than one murder, and about 20% of the population. These counties account for only 4% of all murders in the country.

The worst 1% of counties have 19% of the population and 37% of the murders. The worst 5% of counties contain 47% of the population and account for 68% of murders. As shown in figure 2, over half of murders occurred in only 2% of counties.

We have some real problems in this nation, and it all goes back to one thing, democrat policies in so-called Blue Cities. Each counties is one democrat city…

after another…

after another…

and another…

I call this The Blue City Blues, because when you look at the states and cities with the biggest problems, it invariably are “blue cities” or “blue states” where the problems exist.
