Few sources are reporting that crime is down significantly last year in the United States according to a recently released FBI report which was totally ignored by all the liberal establishment media in the US and Canada largely on the basis that “orange man bad,” but also because facts, science, truth, et., destroys their false narrative.
I highlighted one sentence for the benefit of Justin Trudeau and liberals in his media division who promise to confiscate what they maliciously describe as “military assault rifles” from good innocent law-abiding Canadians:
The new FBI data showed that all murder dropped by 6.2% in 2018 and that gun murders also dropped by 6.7% in 2018. Specifically, murders committed by all types of rifles combined dropped by a staggering 23.9%.
My own data suggests that total and utter BS is up amongst liberal media and politicians in Canada by a staggering 1,300%, so far this year.
BONUS INFORMATION (no charge):
Don’t worry, the lying media and lying politicians have nothing to do with this additional fact:
Public perceptions about crime in the U.S. often don’t align with the data. Opinion surveys regularly find that Americans believe crime is up nationally, even when the data show it is down. In 18 of 22 Gallup surveys since 1993 that have asked about national crime, at least six-in-ten Americans said there was more crime in the U.S. compared with the year before, despite the generally downward trend in national violent and property crime rates during most of that period.
Pew Research Center surveys have found a similar pattern. In a survey in late 2016, 57% of registered voters said crime in the U.S. had gotten worse since 2008, even though FBI and BJS data show that violent and property crime rates declined by double-digit percentages during that span.
While perceptions of rising crime at the national level are common, fewer Americans tend to say crime is up when asked about the local level. In all 21 Gallup surveys that have included the question since 1996, no more than about half of Americans have said crime is up in their area compared with the year before.
