Homicide Rates Spike in Baltimore, DC, St. Louis, and Chicago

A review of several major city homicide rates through late-2015 show that many are likely to see their highest murder totals in recent memory. 

The uptick in violent crime comes amid a national debate on whether an increasingly hostile, anti-police movement across the nation is affecting law enforcement practices and public safety. 

Although these numbers comprise but one metric in a broader analysis of crime in society, the dramatic rise in violence is striking.

Baltimore, arguably the epicenter of hostility toward law enforcement, has seen a particularly steep rise in it's homicide rate.
