However, I'm going to call you out on just making stuff up, as you are often want to do.

In 2010 there were 14,748 murders in the US. Let's see how close to "half" those cities were in terms of their murder rate.

NYC: 532
LA: 291
Chicago: 435
Philly: 306
DC: 131
Detroit: 308
Baltimore: 223

Total: 2226 or 15.09%

Close enough.
How many of those murders in the us were related to the war on drugs or mental health?
I don't know. Call up all the police departments. I'm sure they'll be more than happy to give you the information so you can crunch the numbers yourself.
Perhaps you should look at the cities' metro area and get back to me. Chicago metro, for example, jumps to about 1,200. Multiply all those by two or three and you'll be close.
