In response to Mr. Mihevc’s letter regarding crime rates in Democrat-run cities, he stated that “Democratic led states, counties, and cities have less murders and crime rates than Republican controlled states, counties, and cities.” This simply is not true. According to worldpopulationreview.com ( a non-partisan website) 18 out of the top 20 cities with the highest murder rates have Democrat mayors. Las Vegas Mayor Carolyn Goodman identifies as an Independent and Tulsa, OK Mayor G.T. Bynum is the only Republican Mayor on the list.
While I vehemently disagree with Mr. Mihevc’s statement that “Democrats just want to make all Americans’ lives better”, at least we can agree that “the truth will set you free.”
The twenty cities in the United States with the highest murder rates (murders per 100,000 people) are:
St. Louis, MO (69.4) DEMOCRAT Mayor Baltimore, MD (51.1) DEMOCRAT Mayor New Orleans, LA (40.6) DEMOCRAT Mayor Detroit, MI (39.7) DEMOCRAT Mayor Cleveland, OH (33.7) DEMOCRAT Mayor Las Vegas, NV (31.4) INDEPENDENT Mayor Kansas City, MO (31.2) DEMOCRAT Mayor Memphis, TN (27.1) DEMOCRAT Mayor Newark, NJ (25.6) DEMOCRAT Mayor Chicago, IL (24) DEMOCRAT Mayor Cincinnati, OH (23.8) DEMOCRAT Mayor Philadelphia, PA (20.2) DEMOCRAT Mayor Milwaukee, WI (20.0) DEMOCRAT Mayor Tulsa, OK (18.6) REPUBLICAN Mayor Pittsburgh, PA (18.4) DEMOCRAT Mayor Indianapolis, IN (17.7) DEMOCRAT Mayor Louisville, KY (17.5) DEMOCRAT Mayor Oakland, CA (17.1) DEMOCRAT Mayor Washington D.C. (17.0) DEMOCRAT Mayor Atlanta, GA (16.7) DEMOCRAT Mayor
