FBI Director James Comey expressed an urgency Wednesday in cracking down on a surge in violent crimes in inner cities.

Comey said he’s committed to helping local agencies with investigations and other tools, The Cincinnati Enquirer reports. 

The violence, he said, was affecting “younger men of color killing each other … and there are no lives that do not matter.”

Comey noted an escalation of violence in Cincinnati, Columbus, Chicago and Washington D.C.

“There are cities with nothing in common where this is happening,” said Comey, who was appointed to a 10-year term in 2013. “We have hit historic lows for violent crime recently, and if we let it slide back, we will need to explain to those who come after us what we did or didn’t to let that happen.”

Comey called for cooperation among law enforcement agencies.

“I’m not here announcing any big initiative or program … but we have a lot of smart people who we brought on board after 9/11 who may be able to help look at the issue differently,” Comey said. “We definitely need to bring more folks to bear.”
