New report details terrifying FBI secret

The Radical Left has many secrets that they try to keep from the American people. But this might just be one of the worst.

And a new report has detailed a chilling FBI secret.

A recent report spearheaded by former assistant FBI director Mark Morgan and attorney Sean Kennedy reveals significant discrepancies in the FBI’s reporting of violent crime statistics for the year 2023, suggesting a potential crisis in public safety and flaws in the criminal justice system in the United States.

Titled “Assessing America’s Crime Crises: Trends, Causes, and Consequences,” the report argues that crime in the US has not only risen but is considerably worse than official statistics suggest.

According to the findings, despite preliminary data from the FBI indicating a decrease in crime over the past few years, the reality is starkly different.

The authors of the report use a compelling metaphor to describe the misleading nature of current crime statistics:

“To say crime is down is like descending from a tall peak and standing on a high bluff, saying you are closer to the ground – a true but misleading statement.”

This underreporting of crime figures has major implications for public perception and policy.

A Gallup poll from March 2024 underscores the severity of public concern, showing that nearly 80 percent of Americans worry about crime and violence to a significant extent, placing it on par with other major concerns like inflation and immigration.

Kennedy, in an interview with Fox News Digital, pointed out critical issues with the FBI’s data collection methods, particularly following the George Floyd protests in 2020.

Many police departments, he noted, began reclassifying certain violent crimes, effectively reducing the reported rates of serious offenses.

“If you classify something as an aggravated assault, it’s a violent crime or a felony, but if you classify it as a simple assault, it’s then a misdemeanor and a non-violent crime,” Kennedy explained.

This change in classification significantly impacts how crime data is perceived by the public and portrayed in the media.

Furthermore, the report highlights a growing reluctance among businesses and individuals to report criminal activities.

Many believe that police response times are too slow to justify the effort of reporting, leading to an even greater underestimation of true crime rates.

Kennedy criticized the uncritical acceptance of FBI crime data, which often comes with numerous caveats that are not adequately communicated to the public.

“FBI data is taken as gospel truth when the FBI itself puts a series of footnotes all over their own data,” he stated.

The report also blames the rise in crime on “soft-on-crime” policies implemented in many Democrat-led cities.

These initiatives, according to the report, have contributed to a deterioration of law and order, prompting calls from the public for enhanced law enforcement and stricter criminal penalties.

The researchers point out that these policy failures not only exacerbate the crime situation but also erode public trust in the ability of local governments and law enforcement agencies to protect their citizens.

The “Assessing America’s Crime Crises” report serves as a critical examination of the current state of crime and public safety in the United States.

It calls for a reassessment of how crime data is collected, reported, and understood by policymakers and the public.

As the 2024 election approaches, the findings of this report could play a significant role in shaping discussions around national security and criminal justice reforms, potentially influencing voter sentiment and public policy at both the state and federal levels.
