The FBI reports that 83% of all murders in Minnesota, that were reported to the agency in 2019, occurred in the Minneapolis-St. Paul Metro area. The twin cities are about 13% of the population of the state but appear to account for a large majority of all murders each year.
Minneapolis had 82 homicides in 2020, two of these were committed during BLM rioting. Homicides in 2020 increased 78% over the 46 homicides that occurred in 2019. The Minneapolis PD reports that fewer homicides are being solved as well. There were also 468 other non-fatal gunshot victims, which was over double the number in 2019. According to MPR News, over 80% of homicide victims in Minneapolis were black in 2020.
In 2019, homicides were already way up in St. Paul. The city had thirty homicides that year, the most since thirty-one were killed in 1992. St. Paul only had 17 homicides in 2018, so 2019 saw a 76.5% increase over the previous year.
In 2020, St. Paul had 34 homicides. While this was only a 13% increase over 2019, it was an all-time high for the city. St. Paul also had 192 non-fatal gunshot victims in 2020. A 40% increase over the 137 in 2019. St. Paul also saw violent crime in general rise 25% and property crime rise 14% in 2020.
St. Paul is already off to a very bad start for 2021. The city had at least 6 homicides in January.
To grasp what is going on in St. Paul, we need to go beyond the media’s hyperbole, censorship, and disingenuous “theories.” We need to look at who the victims and the perpetrators are. What we find is that 70.6% of homicide victims and 89.7% of known homicide suspects in St. Paul were black in 2020. Yet the city is only 16-18% black.
