According to the Associated Press (AP) violent crimes in the United States grew over the two years in a row.
What period of time did that North American news agency write? The time comprising between 2015 and 2016.
The fact was broadly commented this Monday for its journalist Sadie Gurman.
Revising FBI statistics, she remarked that it grew mainly in the most important cities.
Gurman noticed that Donald Trump used the numbers as evidence that the country is amid a dangerous wave of crimes.
Therefore? The need of making arrests and other sanctions "against drug crimes."
AP remembers that last year there was a blast of shootings and robberies, up to 4,1% more than in 2015.
While homicides of varied nature reached 8,6% in that same time.
The source aforementioned turned to last year statistics to highlight that violence jumped to 3.9%, and murders to more than 10.
"This is a concerning tendency that threatens to thwart the advances that made safer our neighborhoods and communities", said the secretary of Justice, Jeff Sessions.
He also sentenced: the years of crime reduction have been replaced by increases.
The website Público.es recently informed in Madrid that two years ago nearly 1134 people were killed in the U.S., mostly black people.
An investigation of the British newspaper 'The Guardian' revealed that the youths of that community have nine times more probabilities of getting killed at the hands of the Police than at the hands of anyone else.
Scary no doubt, the United States has become, by its own right, a paradise for violent crimes.
