BLM Activist Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf Led BLM Anti-Police Protest Promoting And Inciting Hatred Against Law Enforcement With Disgusting “Blue Lives Murder” And “Police Use Our $ To Kill” Signs Prominently Displayed During His Protest

WASHINGTON D.C.– The FBI released “final” crime data for 2020 on September 27, 2021, based on crimes reported to law enforcement agencies.
The data shows that the number of homicides increased nearly 30% from 2019, the largest single-year increase the agency has recorded since it began tracking these crimes in the 1960s.
The violent crime rate rose 5.2 percent.
The estimated number of aggravated assault offenses rose 12.1 percent, and the volume of murder and nonnegligent manslaughter offenses increased 29.4 percent.
Property crime continues to decrease.
Readers need to understand that only 41 percent of violent crimes in the US are reported to law enforcement.
Counting Crime in The US Is Complex
I wished there was a simpler explanation regarding crime increases in the United States. Yes, counting crimes is getting very complex.
The FBI’s press release regarding crime increases for all of 2020 is below. Not all categories of violent crime increased.
First, there are two principal data sources for measuring US crime, the FBI based on crimes reported to law enforcement and the Bureau of Justice Statistics National Crime Victimization Survey.
Only 41 percent of violent crimes are reported to law enforcement, thus the need for a national survey to collect data on all crime.
Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf supports the new law, saying it “provides clear direction for state troopers,” KDKA said.
