Democrat Cities have highest homicide rates

Five major U.S. cities are currently on pace to break their homicide totals from last year, continuing a violent trend that started in 2020.

Los Angeles, Washington D.C., Baltimore, Milwaukee, and Atlanta have all seen homicide numbers outpace their mark from 2021 halfway through this year, with Milwaukee seeing the largest spike of the group, according to crime data reviewed by Fox News. Wisconsin’s largest city has recorded 96 homicides as of June 17 compared to 77 at this time a year ago, a 24.7% increase.

The numbers continue a trend that has plagued the country since 2020, when homicides in the U.S. increased nearly 30% compared to 2019. That trend continued last year, with the Council on Criminal Justice statistics showing homicides across the county in 2021 increased 5% over 2020.

The nation’s capital has been another victim of the trend in 2022, recording 93 homicides as of June 17 compared to 82 at this point a year ago, a 13.4% increase. Atlanta’s increasing rate came in just behind Washington D.C., with homicides as of June 11 coming in at 68 compared to 60 at the same point in 2021, a 13.3% increase. Baltimore (7.7%) and Los Angeles (7.3%) have also seen increased over last year, recording 153 and 162 homicides respectively, an increase over 2021’s year-to-date totals of 142 and 151.

Experts warn that crime tends to surge in the summer, giving major cities little hope of slowing down the rising trend.

Debate on the cause of the recent spike in crime has raged since 2020, with many experts blaming the pandemic and accompanying closures, restrictions, and isolation for a spike in crime. Others have pointed to the “Ferguson effect” or more recent “Minneapolis Effect” for the increases, which resulted in less active policing during times of increasing crime.

“Violent-crime increase—call it Ferguson Effect 2.0 or the Minneapolis Effect— has come on with a speed and magnitude that make Ferguson 1.0 seem tranquil,” the Manhattan Institute’s Heather Mac Donald said during 2020’s crime wave. “George Floyd’s death at the hands of Minneapolis police in late May was justly condemned — but the event has now spurred an outpouring of contempt against the pillars of law and order that has no precedent in American history.”

We needed legislation for teachers not to have sex with students

Legislation passed in the Rhode Island legislature Tuesday will close a loophole in state law which allows teachers to have sexual relationships with students as young as 14, potentially leaving Massachusetts as the only state where such relationships are legal.

Most states where the age of consent is 16 have laws preventing teachers, and others in position of authority, from having sex with minors, even if the student is of the age of consent. Massachusetts and Rhode Island have not had such protections, making it legal in both states for teachers to sexually touch children as young as 14, with their consent, in a non-penetrative way.

The Rhode Island legislation, which has passed both the state House and Senate and is now awaiting a signature from the governor, would make it third degree sexual assault for someone in a position of authority to have a sexual relationship with minors.

Rhode Island state Sen. Jessica de la Cruz, R., sponsored the legislation in the Senate for three years, told Fox News Digital she hops its passage will prevent the sexual assault of students and enable the prosecution of those in power who take advantage of minors.

“As a mom first, now as a lawmaker, there is no greater priority than protecting our kids,” she said.

Erika Sanzi, a Rhode Island mom and education advocate, has been pushing similar legislation for five years in Rhode Island, and told Fox News Digital she believes several factors contributed to the legislation’s success this year. A primary factor, Sanzi said, was the teachers’ unions did not publicly oppose the bill, as they had done in the past.

Supreme Court uphold 2nd Amendment

The Supreme Court of the United States held today that the Second and Fourteenth Amendments protect the right to carry firearms in public in the Firearms Policy Coalition (FPC)-supported case, NYSRPA v. Bruen. The opinion, along with the two supporting briefs FPC filed last year, can be found at FPCLaw.org.

The 6-3 majority opinion, authored by Justice Clarence Thomas and joined by Justices Alito, Gorsuch, Kavanaugh, Barrett, and Chief Justice Roberts, was notable in a number of important ways:

  • The Court expressly rejected the “two-step” approach often employed by lower courts since the McDonald v. Chicago decision in 2010, saying that the Constitution “​​demands a test rooted in the Second Amendment’s text, as informed by history.”
  • The Court expressly held that “when the Second Amendment’s plain text covers an individual’s conduct, the Constitution presumptively protects that conduct.”
  • Quoting the McDonald plurality opinion, the Court held that: “The constitutional right to bear arms in public for self-defense is not a second-class right, subject to an entirely different body of rules than the other Bill of Rights guarantees.”
  • The Court said that: “We know of no other constitutional right that an individual may exercise only after demonstrating to government officers some special need. That is not how the First Amendment works when it comes to unpopular speech or the free exercise of religion. It is not how the Sixth Amendment works when it comes to a defendant’s right to confront the witnesses against him. And it is not how the Second Amendment works when it comes to public carry for self-defense.”
  • Ultimately, the Court held that: “New York’s proper-cause requirement violates the Fourteenth Amendment in that it prevents law-abiding citizens with ordinary self-defense needs from exercising their right to keep and bear arms.”

“The Court’s opinion in this FPC-supported case is a monumental step forward for natural rights and individual liberty. FPC Law will soon be filing many more important strategic lawsuits, adding to our dozens of active cases across the United States on key issues from restrictions on the right to carry in public to bans on self-manufacturing firearms and so-called ‘assault weapons’ and ‘large-capacity’ magazines. We know that authoritarian governments and officials will do everything they can to circumvent the Constitution and attack the human right to keep and bear arms, but we will punch back twice as hard. We are eager to fight forward for the People and continue our work to create a world of maximal human liberty,” said FPC founder and President Brandon Combs.

Bruen is a major win for the People and for the liberties our Constitution was designed to protect. Not only did the Court confirm that peaceable people have the right to armed defense outside the home, but it denounced the ‘interest-balancing’ test that lower courts have used to justify dozens of unconstitutional laws over the last decade. Today’s decision will allow FPC Law to press our current cases and to challenge many laws that were upheld in prior cases, potentially allowing many of the freedoms lost to be restored in the years to come,” said FPC Law’s Director of Constitutional Studies Joseph Greenlee, whose work was cited favorably in the Court’s opinion.

Mark Hancock joins Joe to discuss how too many boys are turning to virtual worlds of television, video games, digital media, and the internet to find realms they can conquer and areas where they can excel.

You afraid of the Tax Man? Don’t Be!

Guest, Dan Pilla of TaxHelpOnline.com explains the most common “GOTCHA” TAX reporting mistakes that people make.

The tax code is SO huge, that most agents couldn’t possibly know all the law. Plus, they don’t go by the “law”, they go by the tax manual.

The decisions of tax auditors are NEVER final. You always have the write to appeal. The appeals office is tasked with trying to negotiate a settlement. Still not final. After that, you can take it to tax court and have it heard. The higher up the ladder you go in the IRS, the better chance you have of an accurate and fair assessment.
