So curt should be investigated for being a potential mass murderer. Got it. As usual though, he conveniently forgot 15,000 women are murdered by spousal abuse, and to include gang violence to be included in "mass shootings" that aren't getting any notice by his media sources. In 2021, the homicide rate for kids tripled, and is on the uptick from there. The city’s deadly scourge of street violence has claimed at least 21 children so far this year — more than triple the number for the same period in both 2019 and 2020, according to a Post analysis of NYPD data.
This year’s grim figure involves kids between the ages of 10 and 17 who were killed by either guns or knives between January and Sept. 30. By comparison, the NYPD reported six children under age 18 shot to death in the first nine months of 2020, while in 2019, five were slain in gun violence and stabbings, the numbers show.
Cleveland area is just as bad. Cuyahoga County sees surge in children killed, children charged with murder.
CLEVELAND, Ohio — Cuyahoga County saw a surge last year in the number of children who succumbed to fatal violence — both those killed by it and those accused of perpetrating it.
Prosecutors charged 35 youths with murder or aggravated murder, a 52% jump from 2021′s total of 23. There were also 19 children slain, up from 13 in 2021.
The numbers suggest that the county is in the midst of an epidemic of youth gun violence that it has not seen since the 1990s, when so many shootings and slayings led community leaders to host a gang summit in Cleveland.
