The problem we face to many of them leaving places like Seattle and other democrat run third world cities is they migrate to Tennessee.  

Then they want here to become like there.   :-[

Is that an unusual ratio?  What was it in 2019?

Boise has been growing very rapidly of late, for years.  Portland metro is almost 10x as large.

But if this ratio has changed markedly in the past 6 months, that would be interesting.

I guess that's what happened in Detroit? All the people that could leave, left?

One of the most violent neighborhoods in Chicago is Englewood.
And that's exactly what happened there....

Englewood population:

1960 97,595
1970 89,659 −8.1%
1980 59,075 −34.1%
1990 48,434 −18.0%
2000 40,222 −17.0%
2010 30,654 −23.8%
2015 26,121 −14.8%

2018 23,792 - 8.9%

Meanwhile, 40 dead (so far) in Englewood this year with total shootings amounting to 215.
For the year 2020, close to 1.5% of the population will have been shot.

https://www.cmap.illinois.gov/documents/10180/126764/Englewood.pdf

The average age of someone shot this year is about 28 years old.
About 55% of deaths are between ages 20 & 34 in Chicago.
Let's extrapolate that for both Englewood and for those wounded.

That would imply that if there are 350 people shot in Englewood in 2020, 193 would be in the age range of 20 to 34.  There are (were) 5,416 people in that age group.  That means that 3.6% of those in that age range will have been shot this year alone.

Absolutely nuts.

It would be interesting to visit Portland today (No, I don't volunteer) and drive around the city and see how much of it is involved in all of this.  Anyone can take a camera to the worst parts of a city, or riot, and make the implication the entire place has gone to pot.  It could well be that the suburbs are pretty normal, and major parts of downtown (how much is hard for me to tell).

The CHAZ thing in Seattle was like a postage stamp on a barn door.

I'm sure everyone is shocked that the "media" can overplay and exaggerate a situation rather easily, like using a telephoto lens on a beach to imply folks are crowded together when in fact they are 10+ feet apart.

And I read that the Feds left Portland, so all the rioters quit rioting, no?  (Sarcasm).

Just last night - looks like these Marxists are looking for easier targets - like Police Stations....


https://www.foxnews.com/us/portland-mayor-condemns-rioters-for-attempting-to-commit-murder

SNIP:
A riot was declared Wednesday evening when agitators descended upon the Portland Police Bureau’s East Precinct building, spray-painted over security cameras, broke a glass door with a 2x4, lit a fire using an accelerant and threw fireworks and other objects at officers, according to FOX 12 in Portland.

Police said that a truck also attempted to run over officers.

The front doors of the precinct were barricaded before the fire was started with more than 20 officers and civilian employees inside, police said, according to FOX 12.

Officers used tear gas to disperse the rioters and at least eight people were arrested. A federal court order bars police from using tear gas unless a riot is declared.

“I believe that city staff could have died last night,” Wheeler said. “I cannot and I will not tolerate that. This is not peaceful protests. This is not advocacy to advance reforms.”

"Defund the police" ....

Could anyone advocating for that explain to me how these situations would be handled in the future?  Even if you cut half the budget and leave the rest?

Do folks think these "protesters" would go home satisfied at having achieved their objective?

This soft handling of the situation has led to larger and larger and more destructive riots night after night.

Where you channeling Fuzz when you chose your subject matter?  ;)
President Harry S. Truman said: “The fundamental basis of this nation’s laws was given to Moses on the Mount.  The fundamental basis of our Bill of Rights comes from the teachings…  If we don't have the proper fundamental moral background, we will finally wind up with a totalitarian government which does not believe in rights for anybody except the state.”
