    Sounds misleading. I imagine every real city is well above the national averages for those rates.

    The rest of the country doesn't pay much attention to her. Other than to laugh. She's either bat:censored2: crazy or corrupt as hell. Or both.

    I didn't say it was Mayberry but the numbers clearly show a downtrend in the past 10 the 15 years.

    Where in that statement does it say it's trending up since Katrina?

    Well it didn't get the nickname Chiraq for nothing.

    How dare you challenge their narrative with facts.

    Percent change in violent crime rate: 9.1%

    Violent crime rate per 100,000: 1,008.5

    While overall crime in Houston was essentially the same as in 2015, violent crime was up. There would be 14.9 murders per 100,000 people in 2016, the Brennan Center predicted.

    As someone who lived through it, I can tell you crime went up here after the Katrina refugees settled in. Gangs from NO went on a rampage in this city, trying to assert their authority, supplant gangs that were already here.

    What you are dancing around is ... every Democrat/Liberal location/stronghold is above the national average and well above Republican/Conservative location/stronghold.
    We all know this but it's not politically correct to tell the truth.

    You didn't live through squat. You live in a gated suburb.

    There’s more crime where more people live. This would only be surprising if you are dumber than a sack of rocks. Did it take you off guard?

    Isn’t it amazing that large populations have more crime? It’s almost like more people live there or something.

    Nobody is bragging. Just simply pointing out the racist and fake argument that Katrina survivors increased Huston's crime rate. A simple internet research will show no year after 2005 has reached or surpassed it in crime rate.
