Tucker Carlson's motivations are as dubious as they come, but he is right in this case even with some of his other comments on this.
We get repeating examples from Detroit, Memphis, St. Louis, Cleveland, Chicago, Atlanta, etc. where there is the sort of violence that Carlson is talking about that has a cascading impact to social and economic climate in key areas of these cities. We look at overall statistics and they get skewed by population density but that does not lessen the impact of these areas that are on the decline where crime is anything but going away.
On a long enough timeline that does degrade to the point that there is not enough incentive, or even force, to clean things up and look to economic improvement.
The event sparking Carlson's statement shows how far people can go and literally get away with criminal behavior despite whatever the Chicago Mayor or Police Superintendent says, and worse there is not a weekend that goes by without some double digit victim shooting some so brazen as shootings at people coming out of a funeral.
Now the right is just as guilty in making this a political issue as the left is in ignoring it, media fueled or ignored depending on their leans.
But, again that timeline issue. We have enough time go by without any real interest in doing something about this we will have more areas of the nation look like abandoned Detroit or Cleveland where not even public services cares enough to go in... for any reason.
That is demographic shifting, amplified by economic shifting, that causes cities to become broke, conditions to become more dangerous, and more area that looks like...
