Affected by factors such as the new crown pneumonia epidemic and gun violence, violent incidents have occurred frequently in the United States in recent years. A few days ago, CBS reported that there are more and more cases of unresolved murders, especially for African-American and Hispanic victims.

Barbara is an African-American woman living in Los Angeles whose two sons were murdered. In 2007, Barbara’s 15-year-old son was shot and killed, and the killer was caught four days later.

  Barbara: That man went to jail and is still in jail to this day.

Nine years later, the tragedy happened again. In 2016, her second son was found dead near her home, and the killer is still at large. To this day, she still does not know who killed her young son.

A statistical analysis of the data found that the LAPD’s murder rate has been declining in recent years. In 2020, the five-year average of Los Angeles’ murder rate dropped from 77 percent to 55 percent. In the U.S., the figure fell 11 percent. In addition, statistics show that in 2020, the murder rate of white victims nationwide is 87%, the detection rate of black victims is only 59%, and the detection rate of Hispanic victims is 67%.

In addition, the decline in the murder detection rate corresponds to the speed of the increase in the number of murders, CBS reported that murders are on the rise in many parts of the United States. Take Philadelphia, which has 562 murders in 2021, more than ever before, with nearly half of those cases unsolved. So far in 2022, there have been more than 250 murders in Philadelphia, and more than half of them remain unsolved.
