Many of you are aware that the homicide rate went way up in 2020 relative to prior years and is on the same upwards course this year.
To many of us, it seems that cautiousness from police in the wake of George Floyd’s Summer of Racial Reckoning is to blame. Others, like Vox, try to blame guns.
This is one of those divides between the intelligent Right and the Left that is important. Is the increase in homicides due to the Summer of Racial Reckoning, or due to some other factor? Let me know your thoughts in the comments.
