As Crime Skyrockets, FBI Stops Reporting National Stats

(Tony SifertHeadline USA) As crime skyrockets throughout the United States, the FBI has once again refused to make its collection of national 2021 crime “data trends” available to the public, allegedly because too few law enforcement agencies have submitted the relevant data.

“For this quarterly release, due to agency participation being under the 60 percent threshold, data trends by region and aggregate population group will not be available,” the report said.

“In 2021, the FBI Quarterly Uniform Crime Report for the nation is based on data received from 9,881 of 18,818 law enforcement agencies in the country that year.”

Blogger Steve Sailer expressed surprise that the FBI can be so lax with such important analytic data.

“I doubt that this is a top-down Biden Administration conspiracy, more a bottom-up example of increased slackness that we’ve seen a lot of over the last two years,” Sailer wrote.

“But, in general, America should invest more so that our murder and traffic fatality statistics are as almost up to date as our baseball statistics.”

At Power Line, however, Steven Hayward suggested that the FBI is attempting to “make crime vanish” as numerous progressive Soros-funded District Attorneys face recall elections in 2022.

San Francisco DA Chesa Boudin — son of the Weather Underground terrorists Kathy Boudin and David Gilbert — is facing a recall that will take place on June 7, 2022, according to Ballotpedia.

Boudin has claimed that “the tough-on-crime approach . . . hasn’t worked,” reported the Daily Mail.

A campaign to recall Los Angeles County George Gascon has already received 125,000 signatures and raised $3.5 million dollars, according to Fox News.

For its part, the Department of Justice has complained that law enforcement agencies are increasingly reluctant to share statistics on hate crimes with the FBI, Axios reported.

“This lack of accurate hate crimes data not only makes it harder for law enforcement to address and prevent hate crimes, but also can cause individuals and communities victimized by acts of hate to believe that law enforcement agencies are not responding to their experiences,” Assistant Attorney General Kristen Clarke told the Senate Judiciary Committee.
