Woke = Crime?

Ultimate Guide to Fleeing California’s Progressive Policies
Let’s try and find out if it’s theft, crime, drag queen library day in public schools, or something else. Below, I will cover the number of concerns and theft and property crime statistics for concerned citizens considering fleeing the Golden State.

What Is Theft?

Theft crimes are a category of crimes that target the property of another. The deliberate act of taking another person’s property or money without their permission and with the intention of permanently denying the owner of the item is what is specifically referred to as theft.

Furthermore, the severity of the fines and repercussions for each larceny-theft crime is closely correlated with the value of the theft, your criminal history, and the circumstances of the incident.

Robberies cover a wide variety of charges, including infractions, aggravated assaults, misdemeanors, felonies, and others like gun violence.

What Are Property Crimes?

Property crimes also include those that don’t require theft. As an example, the prosecutor should not show that the defendant committed theft in order to charge them with PC 496 – Receiving Stolen Property and PC 594 – Vandalism, both of which are property crimes.

Item crimes, like larceny offenses, can range in intensity depending on the defendant’s prior criminal history, the worth of the property or the cost of repair, and the specifics of the case.

The property crime rate in Los Angeles is 1.2 times higher than the national average, according to available data.

What Are the Statistics?

What Does the Los Angeles Police Department Have to Say?

According to the police officers’ data and Chief Michel Moore, the number of violent crimes in neighborhoods registered in Los Angeles in 2022 has stayed around the same as it did at this point in 2020 before the epidemic had fully taken grip of the country. Of course, we know the new woke DA doesn’t charge violent crimes, so that is probably a lie. Crime and violence still rises when it’s not reported, right?

Crime Rates

Compared to the 2,633 violent crimes reported at this point in 2020, Los Angeles has so far, in 2022, reported 2,752 violent crimes; an increase of just over 4%.

The number of REPORTED violent crimes in Los Angeles in 2021 was 30,078; the city’s crime rate was 804.28 per 100,000 people.

Property Crime Rate

For sure, even when the woke DA hides the numbers, the property crime rate in Los Angeles is twice as high as the national average and is comparable to that of cities like Dallas, San Francisco Phoenix, and Atlanta.

Murder Rates and Homicides

Los Angeles, California is comparable to other democrat run cities like Portland, San Diego, and Las Vegas and has the 9th highest murder rate in the country at 10.6. If you use a gun to defend your family, expect to be jailed unless you are a gang member. It’s all about race now.

According to the most recent police statistics, there have been 55% more shooting victims (gang members being released by DA Gascon are targeting wealthy areas) this year than there were in the first half of 2020. When we consider aggravated assaults and non self defense gun violence homicides, there has been a worrying and noticeable increase in MURDERS, according to Lofstrom. Currently, homicide is sitting at a rate of 181 murders. As in past years, firearms were used in more than 75 percent of homicides and burglaries so far this year.

Is New York’s Violent Crime Rate Higher than Los Angeles, CA?

Formerly known for having a high crime rate, New York City (NYC) no longer has one. As a result of a dramatic decline in violent crime since the 1990s, New York City is today regarded as one of the safest major cities for robbery in the United States.

Los Angeles has a higher violent crime rate than New York City. It got a score of 29.1 for violent crimes in 2021, while NYC received a score of 28.2 for crime rates like murder, homicides, larceny-theft, burglary, rape, robbery, and aggravated assault. When it comes to property crimes like theft, burglary, and arson, California scored 35.1 while NYC scored 24.9.

Is New York or Los Angeles Safer?

New York City is a safer place to live, even though the Los Angeles administration is working tirelessly to lower the city’s crime rate given the current trends. With their DA, who behaves more like a public defender, that is HIGHLY doubtful to occur according to older Californians fleeing the state in droves.

What Is Causing the Rise in Violent Crime Rates?

According to figures from the Los Angeles Police Department, there were 172 killings in the city as of June 18, a rise of 35% from the first half of 2020 and a 5.5% increase from the same period last year.

Why has there been a crime surge in California? There are several things driving it, according to experts, but they don’t all agree on what they are.

It’s challenging to pinpoint a single contributing reason, including the pandemic, prison reform, societal upheaval following the death of George Floyd, and a general sense of hopelessness.

However, the property crime data is unmistakable, and the country’s urban residents in both small and large cities are concerned about the increasing trend.

What About Motor Vehicle Theft?

In the City of Los Angeles, CA, almost 30,000 vehicles are stolen annually. Essentially, motor vehicle theft accounts for about 24 percent of property crimes and 18 percent of all violent crime trends in the City. Auto theft is a major and lucrative industry that is highly common in metropolitan cities. A car is stolen every 23 seconds, according to FBI crime figures.

The average car can be stolen by a skilled auto thief in about a minute. 50% of the stolen vehicles in the City of Los Angeles that were recovered in 2003 had been stripped or had minor damage. Most stolen cars seem to be used for transportation, however, some are also prized for their parts.

What Type of Cars Are Usually Stolen?

Over the past 10 years, the automobiles that are most commonly stolen have also been the most widely sold. The Toyota Camry, Honda Civic, and Honda Accord models from the late 1980s and early 1990s have been the most commonly stolen cars during the last five years.

Because of how easy it is to steal these cars, they have become targets. Owners of these vehicles should take security protocols to protect them against theft.

How Are Los Angeles’ Crime Rates Calculated?

By multiplying the total number of recorded crimes in a given population, you can calculate crime rates.

Say for instance, in 2021, there were 397 murders in Los Angeles, which had a population of 3.743.970. Then, 10.62 murders per 1000 people were committed.
