L.A. Police Chief Reveals City on Track For Highest Rate of Homicides in a Decade

L.A. Police Chief Michel Moore who has been under scrutiny because of the Black Lives Matter Movement, recently announced that the city is on track to exceed 300 homicides in 2020, a number which hasn’t been outdone in over a decade. As of Saturday, the city has reported 266 homicides. To compare, there were 260 homicides in 2018, and 253 in 2019. The last time L.A. surpassed 300 homicides was in 2009, when there were 312 killings. Makes you wonder if now is the best time to defund the police?
