‘It’s just crazy’: 12 major cities hit all-time homicide records

“It’s worse than a war zone around here lately,” police official said.

At least 12 major U.S. cities have broken annual homicide records in 2021 — and there’s still three weeks to go in the year.

Of the dozen cities that have already surpassed the grim milestones for killings, five topped records that were set or tied just last year.

“It’s terrible to every morning get up and have to go look at the numbers and then look at the news and see the stories. It’s just crazy. It’s just crazy and this needs to stop,” Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney said after his city surpassed its annual homicide record of 500, which stood since 1990.

Philadelphia, a city of roughly 1.5 million people, has had more homicides this year (521 as of Dec. 6) than the nation’s two largest cities, New York (443 as of Dec. 5) and Los Angeles (352 as of Nov. 27). That’s an increase of 13% from 2020, a year that nearly broke the 1990 record.

‘Brazen assault in the middle of the day’ leaves a boy dead, a neighborhood shaken


OAKLAND, Calif. – An Oakland cannabis delivery service is the latest in the Bay Area’s cannabis industry to be hit by a gang of thieves.

They struck Presto Canna in the city’s Fruitvale neighborhood, not once, but twice this week in back-to-back burglaries.

They first struck early Monday morning, just after 3 a.m. The group of men was captured on surveillance cameras, prying open a gate door with crowbars, killing the power, and then prying open the front door of Lawrence Webb’s delivery service building.
