Washington, DC — According to data released Thursday by the U.S. Department of Justice, Washington, District of Columbia has the second-highest number of recorded violent crimes on record for the city, with a violent crime rate of 24.1 per 100,000 people.
In comparison, the city with the highest number of reported violent crimes, with 25.3, is Atlanta, Georgia.
According to the data released by the DOJ, the most recent year for which data is available, there were approximately 2,800 violent crimes reported in Washington D., DC.
The highest violent crime reported in the District of Colombia was a killing spree in a drug-dealing gang.
The violence in the capital has caused a major humanitarian crisis, with more than 700,000 Colombians displaced since the start of the year.
The city has been experiencing massive violence since May 2018 when police opened fire on a group of protesters demonstrating against President Juan Manuel Santos.
Police have since been accused of killing at least 14 people.
The most recent crime in the city is the killing of 18-year-old Ramiro Martinez in August 2018.
Martinez was shot in the head and killed by police officers.
Police were also accused of shooting an unarmed 18- year-old man who was holding a knife, killing him later that same day.
The U.N. refugee agency UNHCR said on Wednesday that more than 200,000 displaced Colombians have been displaced since June 2018.
The latest violent crime in Washington has already cost the city more than $20 million.
In 2016, the first year of the Trump administration, there was a significant spike in violence.
In March 2018, the Washington, Pennsylvania-based nonprofit Center for Community Change reported that violent crime and homicides in Washington had increased by 40 percent in the first nine months of 2019, a dramatic increase that the group blamed on the Trump Administration.
The number of homicides in the United States rose to an all-time high in the month of March.
The violent crime surge is also likely to continue under President Donald Trump.
On Tuesday, the president announced the United Nations General Assembly will be reconvened on Friday, May 14.
“In the wake of the inauguration of President Trump, violence and crime have continued to rise,” the president said in a statement.
“The violence is a direct result of the failed policies and actions of President Donald J. Trump and his administration.
Violence is the direct consequence of President Barack Obama’s policies and his failed policies have failed the people of Washington, New York, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Dallas, Miami, and throughout the United Kingdom.”
It is no more a beacon for a better life for its citizens. “
Washington is no longer a beacon of hope.
It is no more a beacon for a better life for its citizens.
It belongs to the rest of the world, and we are all a part of the problem.
Washington must lead the way to change.”
