Baltimore’s Murder Rate Tops Every Country Besides One

America’s cities are rotting from the inside out and Baltimore’s rot is further along than most.

 

In fact, Baltimore has become so unlivable that it now has a higher per-capita homicide rate than every single country in the world except for one. Yes, heartbreakingly, that is fact. It’s a testament to just how far some of our American cities have fallen.

 

As per the WorldAtlas, the only country in the world with a higher per capita murder rate is the central American state of Honduras – where there are 90.4 murders per 100,000 people.

 

Baltimore, on the other hand, has 56 homicides per 100,000 people – barely edging out Venezuela where there are 53.7 homicides per 100,000 people.

 

Venezuela’s capital city Caracas, known as one of the most dangerous cities in the entire world, is even worse off with 122 homicides per 100,000.

 

But Baltimore is far from the only city in America that’s currently seeing these astonishingly high levels of violence. Among major cities in the United States, Detroit followed closely behind Baltimore on the FBI’s annual tally with a homicide rate of 40 per 100,000 residents in 2018.

 

Memphis, Tennessee comes in at third with a rate of 28 murders per 100,000, followed by Chicago with 24 per 100,000.  

 

St. Louis, which is has a population that’s substantially smaller in size than the cities mentioned, has also been ranked as one of America’s most dangerous cities with 66 homicides per 100,000 people.

 

After Maryland Democratic Congressman Elijah Cummings slammed the Trump administration’s immigration and border policies, Trump fired back, saying that he should try to fix the serious problems facing his own district before attacking others.

 

In the following days and weeks, the city of Baltimore was subjected to the bright lights of publicity in ways it hadn’t been before. Now, many Americans have a much better understanding of what people living in Baltimore are going through. Perhaps light is the greatest disinfectant. Time will tell.

 

Shortly after, House of Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson traveled to Baltimore to tour a Baltimore Housing and Urban Development (HUD) facility. He invited Rep. Elijah Cummings to come along with him, but he declined the offer. It’s possible that he was preoccupied dealing with the rat infestation.

  1. Trump was right.
    We need to get better laws around the “street sweeping” AK 47 type guns. Yes I’m a gun advocate but even I know AK47 type guns will not be found hunting deer, elk or other to feed families. They are strictly a weapon of mass destruction. So we don’t want to take them away from people whom already have them but we should limit them or rid them if new sales. They gave no use but for “street sweeping” period.
    Correct me if I am wrong here.

  2. ELIJAH CUMMINGS!
    You counterfeiter, what have you to say,Chicken Lips!!!!
    WHERE IS ALL THAT MONEY YOU RECEIVED TO HELP YOUR CITY????

    Black folks in Baltimore are thanking President Trump for Exposing you
    and your corrupt friends!
    Billions were poured into that city! WHERE DID THE MONEY GO???

  3. The article said that shining light on Baltimore’s homicide rate may (?) serve as the greatest disinfectant. One would hope so, but it is doubtful. I believe that it’s true, light can serve as a disinfectant, but it’s unlikely to come from an article of news/commentary.

    The real light of course, is the perfect disinfectant. It is Jesus who said 2,000 years ago, “I Am the Way, The Truth, and the Light”. Let us all turn Him on, and stop hating each other… It can only end very badly.

    Thank You

  4. If you are depending on the Democrats to help you, that is never going to happen. Your best chance of help is from Trump. Time to get rid of Elijah Cummings. The thief of Baltimore. Where is all that Money?

  5. Chicago which is run by demoncrats is turning into the murder capitol of the world!!! 25-30000 people are leaving Illinois every month. Our new governor pitzker is currently under indictment for breaking toilets in his mansion for tax purposes. He just recently signed a budget which has not 1 cutback, but it has a salary increase for all legislators who are doing such a great job of running our state, which is broke!!!🤨

  6. Watched a city come from being a “Dump” to one of the nicest, clean and safe areas around Inner Harbor! In the last 8 or so year Cummings and the corrupt politicians have let it return to a crime ridden, rat infested –it hole! Congratulations to the Democratic Politicians of Maryland!!

  7. Cummings is like EVERY other RAT Negro so called politician. They are brainless. Do nothing. They only wanted to get into a political position to make them feel powerful and rake in as much money as possible. They still think Un Planned Parenthood is the Negro’s best friend.

  8. Baltimore city used to be a great place to visit. My family and I would visit the city frequently for dinner, shows at the Mechanic theater, Lyric Theater, Hippodrome Theater, The Inner Harbor, Oriole Park and M&T Bank Stadium, in addition to several nice restaurants. We no longer go to any of these places for fear of being mugged or even killed.
    Baltimore City has become so bad that a lot of people are moving out of this city. Criminals are coming out to the various counties to live like Perry Hall and Towson, Md. The crime rates in these two counties have risen considerably since . I am thinking seriously about moving out of Maryland and moving to Delaware or North Carolina. It is hard for me to see billions of dollars wasted on a once great city, to a corrupt city and congressional leaders that cannot account for all this money . I am sick and tired of my hard earned tax dollars going to waste by people that are full of excuses and no action. I could go on and on about this subject but I don’t
    want to aggravate myself more than I have to.

  9. Absolutely Correct. He’s a Jive Time MF’er… bullsheeting his people for YEARS. Albeit , blacks love seeing their black elected officials fleece them thinking that they are screwing Whitey…
