What are the highest motive reasons for murder in the USA? If it were known, would it be wise or foolish to provide advice how to reduce murder in the USA?

The Chicago Tribune article titled: Murder rose by almost 30 percent in 2020, FBI reports, reported a whole slew of date, except for the motives of crimes.

The Purpose of This Post

Is to relate ancient wisdom proverbs, and wisdom idiom to this conundrum.

King Solomon

A wise king winnows out the wicked; he drives the threshing wheel over them. 21Disaster pursues sinners, but prosperity is the reward of the righteous.… (Proverb 20:26-27)

Walk with the wise and become wise, for a companion of fools suffers harm. (Proverbs 13:20)

Idiom – Birds of a feather flock together

People who have similar interests, ideas, or characteristics tend to seek out or associate with one another.

What’ My Point?

While gathering information is wise, however, if the information is lacking the motives, the value of the information to focus on what is or are the main drivers to prevent future increases remains a conundrum.

 In other words, it is similar to a doctor trying to prescribe a medicine without knowing the symptoms of the ailment.

My point is if we examine the FBI report, it lists a lot a various data, but not the motives.

For example, in the 2019 report,

What is reported for the 28.3 vfc percent of murders is the murderer knew the victim which would point out the above proverb warnings to choose wisely who you want to excoriate with to reduce your risk of becoming a murder victim.

However, since 49 percent of the motives is unknown, that is the conundrum that needs our ours to winnow us in order to drive the threshing wheel seeds from being spread.

In My Opinion

There are two major reasons for increases in murder rates in the USA.

Drugs and children not being taught religious values and beliefs to avoid sinning.

And now that Government has opened the door to allow sales of recreational marijuana, there result will be more peer pressures and more people indulging in mind altering drugs for recreational purposes.

And if we concerned parents do not vote for school choice or school vouchers to allow the majority of low- or middle-class parents to afford to send their children to private religious schools to be taught the Wisdom and Love in the Bible, in depth, to avoid becoming sinners, the conundrum of what are the motives driving up the murders in the USA,

As for number of guns being the main driver of murders, keep in mind someone using the gun is the one pulling the trigger to either murder or defend him or herself. Which will be s a worse condition for  a Nation if we judge the history of what occurred when Hitler passed a law to take away guns from citizens in Germany.

You Decide

Wise or foolish opinion to discern the FBI reports in order to discern how to reduce the risk factors of being influenced by sinners, drug or dangerous murderers s, criminals, etc. …… or becoming their victims?

Would people having a common interest in not sinning reduce motives to murder another?

Is opportunity for the righteous to prosper increased or decreased if they avoid being murdered by either an acquaintance or spending money to purchase drugs for recreational purposes?

If a government study was made to determine how many convicted criminals attended either a private or public school in their elementary school years which are the most influential or formative years in life, would it perhaps help solve this conundrum?

Is there a reason why 40 percent of public-school teachers send their children to private schools and most politicians in Chicago including the mayor and former President Obama?
