U.S. murder rate is on the rise, according to a new grim report from the FBI

U.S. murder rate is on the rise, according to a grim FBI report. The FBI estimates 22,900 murders took place in 2021.

According to a new report just released by the FBI, murders in the United States are on the rise.

The numbers are grim in this disturbing new trend that’s happening across the country.

The report from the FBI shows on hat violent crime rates are rising nationwide.

Whether it’s subway attacks, aggravated assault or even cold-blooded murder—violent crime in the United States is on the rise.

The statistics from the FBI show from 2020 to 2021 murders increased by 4.3%.

This is in addition to the murder rate that shot up significantly from 2019 to 2020 which showed that murders increased by 29.4%.

FBI officials insist the new numbers—while official— are technically estimates.

However, the 2021 statistics do not include data from the New York, or Los Angeles police departments—suggesting that the true number of murders is significantly higher.

Just over the weekend, Paul Kurtz, was killed while visiting his son at college. Authorities say a homeless man open fire in a Poughkeepsie, New York hotel killing the 53-year-old father.

Meanwhile, FBI Director Christopher Wray seemingly laid the blame on prosecutors who are soft on crime.

“I hear this from chiefs and sheriffs all the time across our country, more and more some of the worst offenders one way or another continue to find themselves back out on street.”

They addressed these concerns in a letter to the CEOs of the media companies, questioning the impact on access, competition, and choice in the sports streaming market.

Voicing apprehension about potential consumer price hikes and unfair licensing terms for sports leagues and distributors, they requested responses by April 30, urging the companies to also send their replies to the Department of Justice.

Despite the companies’ announcement in February of launching a joint sports streaming service in the autumn to attract younger viewers, the deal faces DOJ scrutiny and an antitrust lawsuit from FuboTV. While Disney and Warner Bros remained silent on the matter, Fox declined to comment.

The joint venture encompasses a broad range of professional and collegiate sports rights, including NFL, NBA, MLB, FIFA World Cup, and college competitions, offering non-exclusive access to sports networks such as ESPN, Fox Sports 1, and TNT via a new streaming app.
