Violent crime, including murders, are increasing in Denver and Colorado, according to new statistics from police and the Colorado Bureau of Investigation.
Murders in Colorado have jumped 27 percent in the last three years. In 2015 there were 173 murders, while there were 220 in 2017.
murders in Denver have increased six percent in the last year. So far in 2018, there have been 51 murders, compared to 48 at this time last year, according to Denver Police.
Police say the increase is because there are more incidents where multiple people have been killed.
And for some perspective Detroit is about the same size city as Denver, with a murder rate thats about five times as high.

Ah, the legalization of Marijuana does many things
Colorado Ping ( Let me know if you wish to be added or removed from the list.)
Bingo. Cases with multiple murders...certainly sounds like the newly created drug lords not liking competition on their turf.
You reap what you sow.
I live in a small town. No worries about the liberal decay in Denver making its way to my neck of the woods.
Jesper Joergensen is a pot smoking, illegal alien, arsonist...
Jesper was recently arrested for starting the Spring Fire, the third largest wildfire in Colorado history, will face a trial on 141 felony counts of first-degree arson.
But...but...but...legalization was supposed to solve every problem. It’s a miracle cure!
Mj is a gateway drug.
I was just in Denver 2 months ago, and it’s fine, you gaggle of clucking hens.
It’s amazing that the numbers aren’t much higher.
It's all natural.
I wouldn’t count on that if I were you.
The people with the money always move out of the BIG CITY to escape the crime and what they call the rat race.
Problem is that they bring their money, kids, and attitudes with them.
The criminals follow the money and the kids.
Mom and Dad have the money, the kids buy the coke and the rest of the dope.
Their attitude is ALWAYS SOFT ON CRIME (especially when it involves their own children).
Illegal immigrants, the gangs they form, the turf wars. The crime the gangs do as part of their normal business and the attacks between rival gangs. But it creates the chaos to justify the democRATs generating more control over everyone.
My family does not agree with you , and they live there every day . But thanks for your evaluation .
pot was supposed to quiet people down and make crime go away because you know, all the people would be happy, or something...
Someday we will be allowed to speak openly about how marijuana legalization is absurd and bad for humanity.
traffic fatalities seem to have gone through the roof too ...
If you have a pot shop in your small town, then it's coming your way. I hadn't been to Colorado in decades until I went last year. The pot shops have drastically changed the landscape. I've never been panhandled so much as when I was going through Colorado - even in the small towns. Wherever you saw a pot shop, you also saw a whole new group of panhandlers. The criminals won't be far behind.
I have heard a rumor that water may concievably be wet.
