Rampant Crime

In 2020, as covid-19 spread around the world, a different kind of epidemic was sweeping across America. Murders spiked by 30%. That is the biggest jump in modern history. Other violent crimes also saw a big surge.

While the covid-19 pandemic is now over, the epidemic of crimes is not and is still wreaking havoc in many parts of the country.

In this episode, we will discuss a surge in crimes across the US. Violent crimes, in particular gun violence, have touched every aspect of American life in recent years: a church, a grocery store, concerts, schools, you name it.

Some of the casualties are innocent kids who one day woke up, went to school and never came back. So what’s behind this surge in violence? And what can America do to avoid this becoming the new normal?
