All cities across America have seen drastic violence increases controlled by Democrats across America, like Chicago, Detroit, New York, Dallas, and Los Angeles just to name a few. Black on black crime alone has increased in cities with Democratic rule, come on now they don't call Chicago Chiraq for anything. Democrats have turned our nations biggest cities into war zones, and veterans who live in these cities have stated they would rather be in Afghanistan and Iraq on countless occasions during the Obama administration. If your wondering why cops are killing people from blacks to whites, is based on these stats because Americas biggest cities have turned into war zones that resemble Syria and Iraq.
