From my new column in Taki’s Magazine:

Killer Stats 2023
Steve Sailer

January 04, 2023

I’ve got some good news and some bad news about murder in 2022.

The good news: Urban homicides appear to have dropped in 2022 around 5 percent versus 2021.

The bad news: That marginal progress only gets us back to the brutal level of 2020, the first year of the ongoing “racial reckoning,” when homicides exploded by a record 30 percent over 2019.

Because I’m too impatient to wait around until the second half of 2023 for 2022’s official federal crime statistics to be released by the FBI and CDC, I just now created a convenience sample of 2022 homicide counts in 47 cities.

Read the whole thing there.

By the way, San Antonio’s high 2022 count includes 53 illegal aliens who died being smuggled in a truck.
