Tennessee Violent Crime Rate Dropped as State Put More Criminals in Prison

The number of Tennessee citizens behind bars increased in 2022, coinciding with a drop in violent crime, according to data released this week by the Department of Justice (DOJ) and numbers tracked by the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation (TBI). 

Tennessee saw a 7.9 percent increase in the state’s prison population in 2023, according to the report. The new prisoners include 1,615 men and 125 women. Additionally, the DOJ data release notes that Tennessee is one of only four states that saw more than 1,500 new prisoners during 2022, joined by Texas, Florida, Mississippi.


Kinda funny how that works out, huh?


  1. It's a co inkydink or a miracle, not sure which.

  2. Blacks and minorites most affected. Sounds like racism to me.

    1. Think it just might be because they're the ones committing most of the crimes? Go to any Nashville or Memphis news source and see for yourself.

  3. They ought to put all prisons up in Northern Montana. No a/c in the summers and heat at about six-two in the winter. No tv, cell phones, gyms or any luxury. You gave that shit up when you decided to fuck with people. I wager that would drop crime considerable.

  4. "If crime is down, then what are all these people doing in prison?""

  5. I also understand that shooting the assholes dead works very well too. but if you can't do that, try taking a baseball to their ass for a couple of minutes. just saying. dave in pa.

  6. I guarantee crime would drop even lower if instead of jailing the bastards, they executed them.
    Except for the pedos, got to let the lifers have some fun.

  7. Memphis hasn’t figured that out yet - Roaddevil
