QUANTICO, VA - A new report comprised of data from the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) highlighting both public safety statistics and corrections outcome data has revealed that the states of Washington and Oregon have ranked as two of the most dangerous in the nation.

As reported by The Post Millennial and per rankings from US News & World Report, the state of Washington, which became the dubious home of the self-declared violent, destructive insurrectionist Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone (CHAZ), later rebranded as the Capitol Hill Organized Protest (CHOP) during the Summer of 2020, was ranked as the 11th most dangerous state in the union.

Post Millennial noted that according to FBI statistics, Washinton boasted an incarceration rate of 174 per 100,000 residents in addition to a juvenile incarceration rate of 38 per 100,000 juveniles. The rate of violent crime sat at 376 per 100,000 residents as well. Where the Evergreen State set the bar though was in property crime ranking the very worst tallying 3,356 incidents per 100,000 residents.

The neighboring state of Oregon, home to numerous riots from Antifa and BLM in the past four years, merited a significantly worse score, ranking 47th in terms of property crime with 2,935 incidents per 100,000 residents, and the violent crime rate stands at 342 per 100,000. Comparing incarceration rates Oregon incarcerated 295 residents per 100,000 with juveniles at a rate of 121 per 100,000.

Many Oregon commentators have criticized Multnomah County District Attorney for the spike in crime rates with the Oregon Tea Party writing in a post to X, "DA Mike Schmidt refuses to prosecute #crime, courts release criminals onto the streets, there aren't enough cops, public defenders, or ambulances, and the 911 system places you on hold because there aren't enough operators. #MultCo is an absolute Schmidt show!"
