    One year on from Floyd

    Minneapolis Shootings, Homicides Have More than Doubled Compared to Same Time Last Year


    May 24, 2021




    2020 was one of the deadliest years in Minneapolis history with 83 homicides, yet the city is on track to surpass that record number in 2021.

    The Minneapolis City Council was told Thursday that homicides have more than doubled so far this year compared to the same timeframe last year. This year’s 27 murders (as of May 17) represent a 108% increase over the 13 reported at this point in time last year.

    With 97 homicides, 1995 was the worst year on record, followed by 83 in 1996, meaning 2020 tied for the second-worst year.

      They really need Biden's backing with that.

        He would have drawn attention to the murder rate doubling the following year though
