For years now, I have been in the news business and have done so for my entire life. I worked in news at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County for four years, then spent ten years in the news business at the Baltimore News-Post. I still work in the media business.
Many of these things really aren’t news-related. I had to put them out there for a while, but I was able to get the job done and I was promoted to this position by getting my journalism degree. I’ve had to do this for a long time, but I’ve had the most important job in my life.
Ive been a newspaperman for almost four decades. I was in the city of Baltimore for six years as a cub reporter before I finally got the chance to interview some of the people in the building I was working in. I didnt have a lot of exposure to the city of Baltimore, but I knew that city well. I didnt know that it was the murder capital of the world.
connersville is like the most dangerous city in the world. It has some of the worst crime and violence in America, but it is also one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Its population is about half of where its true population is, which makes for some interesting demographic comparisons.
Connersville seems to have a high murder rate (which is actually a lot worse than you might think). As an example, the number of homicides in Connersville last year was 15,000. In comparison, there were about 1,800 murders in Baltimore (a city of about 20 million people). And the crime rate in Baltimore is about 20 times higher than the national average.
There’s something about crime statistics and demographics that makes it difficult to figure out how our city’s crime rate compares to other major cities. It’s also difficult to quantify what percentage of crimes are homicides. A 2011 study found that about 5% of all crimes were classified as killings. One study put the number much higher at 30%.
As it turns out, Baltimore has an extremely high murder rate for an American city, one in seven people murdered. As far as crime statistics go, that is a lot higher than most other cities. It’s a pretty significant statistic, even if other cities aren’t as high-profile as Baltimore has been.
However, it is worth noting that Baltimore’s murder rate is actually lower than the national average. Though Baltimore is a big city, it only has about 1,300 residents, according to the 2010 census. The rest of America has about 10 times as many people.
To add to the stats, we are told that the murder rate has spiked since 2011 due to a gang war that started in 2013. We also learn that the city’s homicide rate was actually down from 2010-2011 before the war, but it has since been up. The good news is the rate has been the same since 2008.
We also learn that during this summer, the number of murders in the city have been between the same as they were since the mid-2000s. It seems like there has been an uptick in murders since the summer of 2011, which is probably because of the gang war. Still, the citys murder rate was actually down from 2009-2010, and it was the same since the mid-2000s.
