BIDEN’S AMERICA: US Records Highest Increase In Nation’s Homicide Rate In Modern History

Provisional data from the CDC’s National Center for Health Statistics, released early Wednesday, suggest the homicide rate for the United States rose 30% between 2019 and 2020. It is the highest increase recorded in modern history — and confirms through public health data a rise in homicides that so far had been identified only through crime statistics.

The previous largest increase in the US homicide rate was a 20% rise recorded from 2000 to 2001 because of the September 11 terror attacks, according to NCHS.

“It is the largest increase in 100 years,” Robert Anderson, chief of the mortality statistics branch at NCHS, said.

“The only larger increase since we’ve been recording these data occurred between 1904 and 1905, and that increase was most likely — at least partly — the result of better reporting,” Anderson told CNN. “We had states being added to what we refer to as the death registration areas, so we were counting deaths in more areas over time. We didn’t have all states reporting until 1933.”

The new data show the US homicide rate increased from about six homicides per 100,000 people in 2019 to 7.8 per 100,000 in 2020, according to NCHS. Researchers at the center noted that the 2020 homicide rate of 7.8 is the highest recorded in the United States since 1995 but is still significantly lower than the rates in the early 1980s, which topped 10 homicides per 100,000 people.

“So, it’s obviously of concern but we’re not at the levels that we were at that time,” Anderson said. “We’re heading in the wrong direction though, for sure.”

  1. We are pleading with President Donald Trump to run on November 5th, 2024:- Mark our word:- President Donald Trump shall will by landslide red tsunami of epic proportion, and be in Oval Office Noon 1/20/2025 thru Noon 1/20/2029

  2. Apparently in your rush to bash Biden you failed to even read the article that you posted. The “homicide rate for the United States rose 30% between 2019 and 2020.” Trump was president during that period. Try to keep it honest and it’s really time that you move past your obvious biases.

  3. Shouldn’t the title be edited? I don’t like Biden but this is misleading. Trump was the president in 2020. Maybe once we have statistics for 2021 there will be what to point at Biden.

  4. This is a sad case of incompetent reporting. Biden didn’t take office until 2021, so if anything this reflects negatively on Trump.

  5. if you invent an idiot and elect it then you deserve this…..I imagine the rest of the world will have to suffer the ill will and foolishness of a world gone wrong by dancing with the devil__Biden’s World is not a real world and no one need comply….

    while I’m hardly a Biden fan, the headline reads “Biden’s America” but then goes on to elaborate on crime increases from 2019 to 2020 which obviously occurred before Biden. Since this site is called yeshivaworld and you claim to represent a Torah viewpoint as so I’ve got news for you TITEIN EMES L’YAAKOV. PLEASE CHANGE THE HEADLINE IMMEDIATELY.

  7. If the data is from 2020, why does your headline blame it on Biden? YWN should be ashamed of itself. Doesn’t anyone just report the news without politicizing it?

  8. 1. Nothing in this article mentions Biden. Why is his name in the headline.

    2. The federal government has little responsibility for policing and prosecuting murder. It is mostly policed and prosecuted by the state or local governments.

    3. Is it possible that the recent spike in murder has something to do with the pandemic and the measures to fight it? And if so, would the state and local governments resisting the expert advice of the CDC be contributors to the spike in murders? And if that is the case, would YWN consider a headline on this article starting with “Trump’s America” or “Trump’s Legacy to America”? Not that I would recommend that, but ….

  9. Joe Biden, and more recently Phil Murphy, are correct. White supremacy is THEE greatest threat facing our Nation! Blacks and other minorities (conveniently left out of this report) are petrified to leave their homes in order to commit heinous crimes because they fear a WHITE heterosexual male from Idaho, wearing a MAGA cap is lurking in the shadows. This can’t continue.

  10. You might be making a Chilul Hashem with your headline involving Biden in something he had nothing to do with as ZM above points out by not reporting the truth.

  11. This is not because of Biden, this is because leftists have infiltrated schools. Kids and young adults are taught that they are nothing more than a bunch of cells so If they are not happy why shouldn’t they end the life of a bunch of cells?

    Biden as president is simply another consequence of leftistism taking over the country.
