Facts on Black Crime in Connecticut
I started research on crime rates in Connecticut when a gang of six black teenagers targeted and murdered a white restaurant worker for fun.
Connecticut is one of the most affluent states in America. But there is a dark side of the state. A violent non-white underclass tearing its cities apart.
About New London, Connecticut. The City has become a third-world crime zone. The 2021 Census shows a population of 27,635. Racial demographics show white alone, no Hispanic is 47.2%, 33.5% Hispanic, Black 15%.
To quote www.idcide.com: "New London's property crime levels tend to be higher than Connecticut's average level. The same data shows violent crime levels in New London tend to be much higher than Connecticut's average level."
Updates for 2022
Vera claims, "In Connecticut, Black people constituted 11% of state residents, but 41% of the incarcerated population. Since 1978, the black incarceration rate has increased by 109 percent. In 2017, eight times as many black were incarcerated than whites.
The answer is simple: blacks commit 8-10 the crimes per capita than whites. Prisons reflect that fact.
The criminality index of blacks, Hispanics versus whites respectively is 9.4:1; Hispanic 3.7:1
There is no proof of so-called "systemic racism" other than affirmative action.
Search "shootings + Connecticut," and local news reports across the state are filled with violent blacks killing each other and others. Some examples:
According to www.wfsb.com News, Nov 1, 2022, the month "starts with three people hurt in 2 shootings Halloween night." Victim details such as race were not reported.; I'll bet black.
According to www.wtnh.com News, Oct 3, 2022, reports on an attempted carjacking by two black males,
Police identified the suspect who died as 23-year-old Jahziel Phillips-Ray. His brother, 22-year-old Joseph Ray, was wounded and is now under arrest. The attempted carjacking victim was also wounded. The attempted carjacking victim, who police said is a pistol permit holder, is in critical but stable condition.
A report from www.wtnh.com News Oct 5, 2022. Andre Gaston is a black male. I'll bet the shooters were also black males. That is as many as six criminal black males in just one incident. This incident evolved around drug dealing.
Hartford man killed in ‘clearly targeted’ shooting on Orange Street, police say. 24-year-old Andre Gaston of Hartford suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. He was taken to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead. "Based on the evidence we have so far, there was no mistake that this was a personal attack.
Police said a witness captured the incident on video, which shows Gaston making a drug deal with two people in a car. A second car then arrives and three people jumped out, unleashing a barrage of bullets before taking off.
According to one report (Christopher Reinhart, Research Attorney), from 1990-1997, blacks made up ~31% of the prison population at 10% of the population. The above incident is why this happens.
The "confined population" in 1998 at 16,371 was 27% white, 47% black, and 26% Hispanic. He whines that ~30 of the blacks/Hispanics are imprisoned on drug charges as opposed to 9% of whites.
Blacks and Hispanics are far more likely to be dealing drugs, drug trafficking, and related violent crimes because they are poorer and come from broken homes.
Hispanics get in on the fun too but at lower rates than blacks. According to www.fox61.com Oct 6, 2022:
HARTFORD, Conn. - The man arrested in connection to a shooting on Zion Street that left a 59-year-old man dead this past May appeared in court on Thursday. Jose Estrada (Hispanic), 23, faces multiple charges, including murder, conspiracy to commit murder and two counts of criminal attempt murder. Victim and shooter are Hispanic.
In 2022 www.neighborhood.scout says of New London:
Based on FBI crime data, New London is not one of the safest communities in America. Relative to Connecticut, New London has a crime rate that is higher than 78% of the state's cities and towns of all sizes.
CTinsider, Sep 26, 2022, claims crime is down, but murders and sexual assaults are up. Murders and sexual assaults are especially black crimes.
In 2019 Connecticut had a population of 3,565,287. There were 57,408 total crimes, 6,546 violent crimes, 50,862 non-violent. That included 104 murders, 771 sexual assaults, 1,929 robberies, and 3,742 assaults.
The CT Post Oct 28, 2021 notes,
Connecticut was the fourth-safest state in America in 2020, according to the FBI. Connecticut’s violent crime rate — murder, manslaughter, rape, robbery and aggravated assault — was just 181.6 instances per 100,000 residents. That’s the fourth lowest in America, after Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont.
The national average was 398.5, and Republican states like Texas, Arizona and Tennessee had violent crime rates in the 400s and 600s — two to three times higher than Connecticut.
That is true. This fact is the same reason West Virginia has among the lowest crime rates adjusted for poverty: these are vast majority white states.
Millions of low-achieving non-whites straddle Texas, Arizona, and Tennessee with higher crime rates. Nashville, Tennessee, has almost as many murders (88 in 2019) as the entire state of Connecticut. Blacks commit 90% plus of murders in Nashville. Go to the Nashville Police Facebook page, and it's one black male after another: murder, robbery, car-jacking, etc.
The article further notes,
And yet Connecticut does have crime, primarily in urban areas...
That is where most blacks and Hispanics are.
To quote another source:
Analysts noted that about 62% of violent crimes in the state are reported in the Hartford, New Haven and Bridgeport judicial districts, where about 63% of the state's Black residents and 47% of the state's Hispanic population live.
Let us take a closer look. All three are white minority cities. As I have written before, violent crime is proportional to diversity.
New Haven Population White alone, percent 43.6%; Black or African American alone, percent 33.6%.
Bridgeport: White: 38.07% Black or African American: 34.36% Other race: 16.45% Two or more races: 6.69%
New Haven: White alone, percent 43.6%; Black or African American alone, percent 33.6%
The following is from housegrail.com.
Population and racial demographics taken from the US Census.
New Haven is the state’s third-largest city, by population, although it has almost exactly the same population as the second-largest city, Stamford. However, while Stamford’s violent crime rate sits at a reasonable 202 per 100,000, New Haven’s is more than four times that at 895 violent crimes per 100,000. In particular, it has a high robbery rate of 246 per 100,000 and it also has the highest property crime rate in the state: 3,799 incidents of property crime occur for every 100,000 people.
Stamford has far less crime than New haven because it has far less "diversity." New Haven has 3.2 times as many blacks. This crime rate is not a linear relationship. Once the "diversity" population in urban communities exceeds, in my estimation, 20-25%, crime explodes.
Stamford Population: White alone, percent 61.9%; Black or African American alone, percent 13.9%
Hartford is the second most violent city in Connecticut. With a population of 122,245 people suffers 858 violent crime per 100,000 people. It also has the highest homicide rate at 17 per 100,000 people.
Hartford population has been reduced to 15% white, 35% black, 41.7% Hispanic.
Norwich, Connecticut has a much lower violent crime rate than New Haven and Hartford at 382. But 68% of its violent crime is assault, 17% rapes.
Norwich is White (Non-Hispanic) (61.2%), Black or African American (Non-Hispanic) (10%), White (Hispanic) (7.69%), Asian (Non-Hispanic) (7.24%), and Two+ (Non-Hispanic) (4.47%).
Hamden, Connecticut population 60,000 has a violent crime rate of 327. To quote,
72%, or 143 of the 199 violent crimes, were aggravated assault with robbery being the next most common type of crime. Hamden does have quite a high incidence of property crime with 2,182 incidents for every 100,000 population.
Population is White 53% Black 26.5 Hispanic 12%.
New London: population of 26,856 recorded no homicides in 2019 violent crime rate of 294. Rapes constitute one-quarter of these violent crimes. Aggravated assault accounts for only one-third of its violent crimes. White 53.5%, Black 26.5%
Various pro-criminal organizations, such as the Sentencing Project, lament the "disparity" in arrests/convictions of minority criminals versus whites.
They won't discuss the "disparity" in criminality and violence in minority communities.
It doesn't matter what community, be it liberal or conservative, in particular cities under Democratic Party apparatchiks, minority, black violence is overwhelming.
In news reports, Connecticut decreased overall crime in 2021-22, except for murders, shootings, and rapes. Throw in carjackings and robberies. These are primarily black crimes.
Lisa Backus complains,
"Analyzing 65,000 court cases adjudicated in 2019 ... determined that 46% of cases with a Black defendant ended with a conviction, compared to 42% for Hispanics and 37% for whites...
Among all defendants with prior criminal histories, conviction rates were relatively consistent across race and ethnicity," Colangelo said. About 61% of Black, Hispanic, and white defendants with a previous felony conviction are convicted again if they face additional charges."
But there is no proof they weren't guilty as charged. Considering the massive minority crime levels, why is this a problem?
These "diversity" communities create more violent criminals going to jail for the first time. It is behavior. The claims of racism are false.
Affluent white states with lower white crime rates make black crime rates more notable.
Red states have higher overall crime rates boosted by large black populations, but more whites per capita display criminal behavior.
West Virginia is an impoverished white state with low crime rates overall but higher rates than whites in Connecticut. They have few blacks.
The Sentencing Project notes these differences in black/white disparity. The disparity is smaller, with some exceptions, in Red states as opposed to Blue states.
US Total - 4.8:1; Red State examples due largely to far higher white poverty rates:
Alabama - 2.8:1;
West Virginia 3.8:1;
There are some Red State exceptions due to lower white crime rates:
As opposed to claims of racism, disparity illustrates the criminality rate between racial groups. Now the big shock with the Blue States:
Connecticut 9.4:1; Hispanic 3.7:1
Minnesota 9.9:1; New Jersey 12.5:1 - Hispanics 2.0:1; New York 7.8:1 - Hispanics 3.0:1 Rhode Island 8.5:1; Pennsylvania 7.7:1 - Hispanics 2.3:1; Wisconsin 11.9:1 Vermont 12.3:1; Massachusetts 7:1 - Hispanics 4.0:1;
Blue State exceptions under 7:1,
In the table above, blacks, at less than 10% of the population, commit over half the murders in Connecticut. In other words, blacks murder a ratio of over ten times the white rate. It is odd why there are so many unknowns except in 2001. Much of this is mainly black males, about 4.5% of the population.
In the above table, blacks (the ones they caught) committed a robbery at a rate of ten times whites. They perpetrate over half of all robberies in Connecticut by 2003. *For 2001 and 2000, the statistics reported as White, Black, and "Other Race"
The above table produces an even more troubling statistic. Assuming nearly all rapes are committed by males and a black population of about 9%, black males about 4.5%, then 4.5% of the population commits one-third of the rapes in Connecticut. This rate is even worse than here in Virginia, where black males, at 10% of the population, commit 37% of the rapes.
This final table is arrests for aggravated assault. Most of this again is black males (4.5% of the population) are arrested for almost 38% of the assaults. In conclusion one-third to one-half the violent crime in Connecticut is committed by black males at 4.5% of the population.
January 18, 2008 CRIME RATE AND CONVICTION RATES BROKEN DOWN BY RACE
By: George Coppolo, Chief Attorney, Kevin McCarthy, Principal Analyst.
Offender Rate: Based on information contained in the Uniform Crime Reports from 2000 to 2004, and in the U. S. Census Bureau's Population Estimates Program (1/4/08), we were able to prepare estimates on the arrest rates for certain crimes broken down by race. This data indicates that the arrest rate for blacks for murder was 10 to 15 times as high as for whites, five to six times the rate for whites for sexual assault, eight to nine times as high for robbery, four to five times as high for aggravated assault, and between two to three times as high for burglary.
Facts are not racism, go argue with the liberal state of Connecticut.
