That list measures the change between 2019 and 2020.

Baltimore has the second highest murder rate in the country (after St. Louis), but had a record high in 2019 of 348 murders (though that was "only" the highest per capita, since the total figure in 1993, where the population was bigger, was a bit higher at 353). They seem to have had a run of very high murder rates the last couple of years.

As far as I can see Baltimore ended 2020 at 337, which is thus slightly lower than 2019. So as a percentage change it would come in at -3.1% on the table above.

I am sure that is a tremendous source of pride in Baltimore. /Sarc

Looking at the above numbers, it is hard to resist pointing out the blueness of the cities listed.

Also, is it time to start a GofundMe to buy Stargrunt6 an RPD and a half-dozen drum mags?

 

Mr.Picky - RPD uses belts, drum-like ammo box is just to hold them. :) :)

IIRC box was shaped that way due the ergonomics of carrying it.

Can confirm, NOLA has been running wild.  Also, car jackings are up.

Insinuating that she is racist, ever more amusing since she is apparently married to a Filipino.

Yeah, but it didn't stick. Me being an old fart (and purportedly multiethnic, if family history is to be believed).

As Republicans get more diverse, overlooked white voters are key to future Democratic wins

Sounds kinda racist.

Pseudo-realities are, simply put, false constructions of reality. It is hopefully obvious that among the features of pseudo-realities is that they must present a plausible but deliberately wrong understanding of reality. They are cult “realities” in the sense that they are the way that members of cults experience and interpret the world—both social and material—around them. We should immediately recognize that these deliberately incorrect interpretations of reality serve two related functions. First, they are meant to mold the world to accommodate small proportions of people who suffer pathological limitations on their abilities to cope with reality as it is. Second, they are designed to replace all other analyses and motivations with power, which these essentially or functionally psychopathic individuals will contort and deform to their permanent advantage so long as their pseudo-real regime can last.

The above author references Josef Pieper, who has some rather pithy and timely quotes.

“Public discourse, the moment it becomes basically neutralized with regard to a strict standard of truth, stands by its nature ready to serve as an instrument in the hands of any ruler to pursue all kinds of power schemes.”
Josef Pieper, Abuse of Language—Abuse of Power

"This lesson, in a nutshell, says: the abuse of political power is fundamentally connected with the sophistic abuse of the word, indeed finds in it the fertile soil in which to hide and grow and get ready, so much so that the latent potential of the totalitarian poison can be ascertained, as it were, by observing the symptom of the public abuse of language. The degradation, too, of man through man, alarmingly evident in the acts of physical violence committed by all tyrannies (concentration camps, torture), has its beginning, certainly much less alarmingly, at that almost imperceptible moment when the word loses its dignity.”

All of a sudden, mail-in voting is fraught with fraud;

https://www.usatoday.com/story/money/business/2021/01/24/amazon-union-vote-in-person-covid-19/6693642002/

Amazon is asking the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) to direct warehouse workers to cast unionizing votes in-person, rather than by mail.

The company filed a motion last Thursday to delay the union election at an Alabama facility.

The union election was set to begin on Feb. 8 by mail. The motion by Amazon intends to have the NLRB reconsider its decision on the method of voting and instead go for a one-day in-person event.

"We believe that the best approach to a valid, fair and successful election is one that is conducted manually, in-person, making it easy for associates to verify and cast their vote in close proximity to their workplace," Amazon spokeswoman Heather Knox said in a statement to USA TODAY.

Social Media Influencer Charged with Election Interference Stemming from Voter Disinformation Campaign

Defendant Unlawfully Used Social Media to Deprive Individuals of Their Right to Vote

A Florida man was arrested this morning on charges of conspiring with others in advance of the 2016 U.S. Presidential Election to use various social media platforms to disseminate misinformation designed to deprive individuals of their constitutional right to vote.

Douglass Mackey, aka Ricky Vaughn, 31, of West Palm Beach, was charged by criminal complaint in the Eastern District of New York. He was taken into custody this morning in West Palm Beach and made his initial appearance before U.S. Magistrate Judge Bruce E. Reinhart of the Southern District of Florida.

“According to the allegations in the complaint, the defendant exploited a social media platform to infringe one the of most basic and sacred rights guaranteed by the Constitution: the right to vote,” said Nicholas L. McQuaid, Acting Assistant Attorney General of the Justice Department’s Criminal Division. “This complaint underscores the department’s commitment to investigating and prosecuting those who would undermine citizens’ voting rights.”

“There is no place in public discourse for lies and misinformation to defraud citizens of their right to vote,” said Seth D. DuCharme, Acting U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of New York. “With Mackey’s arrest, we serve notice that those who would subvert the democratic process in this manner cannot rely on the cloak of Internet anonymity to evade responsibility for their crimes. They will be investigated, caught and prosecuted to the full extent of the law.”

“Protecting every American citizen’s right to cast a legitimate vote is a key to the success of our republic,” said William F. Sweeney Jr., Assistant Director in Charge of the FBI’s New York Field Office. “What Mackey allegedly did to interfere with this process – by soliciting voters to cast their ballots via text – amounted to nothing short of vote theft. It is illegal behavior and contributes to the erosion of the public’s trust in our electoral processes. He may have been a powerful social media influencer at the time, but a quick Internet search of his name today will reveal an entirely different story.”

The complaint alleges that in 2016, Mackey established an audience on Twitter with approximately 58,000 followers. A February 2016 analysis by the MIT Media Lab ranked Mackey as the 107th most important influencer of the then-upcoming Election, ranking his account above outlets and individuals such as NBC News (#114), Stephen Colbert (#119) and Newt Gingrich (#141).
