WaPo columnist mocks GOP 'fearmongering' on crime: Living in a red state 'much more likely to get you killed'
A column in The Washington Post claimed voters concerned about violent crime should move to blue states, because "living in a Republican state is much more likely to get you killed." Columnist Dana Milbank attempted to debunk GOP messaging on crime this election by arguing that crime wasn't soaring but actually declining, and claiming it was higher in red states.  The columnist also suggested the Republican focus on crime was racist and "paranoid." "If it’s the fall of a year ending in an even number, you can be pretty sure Republicans will try to scare you with paranoia about crime — specifically, violent crime committed by dark-skinned people," he began.

He cited incomplete data from the FBI's annual crime report which found crime in 2021 was stable and overall violent crime had declined by 1 percent from 2020, although homicides were up.Though Milbank admitted the numbers weren't "highly reliable."  The crime report actually lacks complete data from nearly 40% of police departments nationwide.
