<quoted text> What is consistent about the populations, of all those cities?
Let's see, the way I will answer your question " What is consistent about the populations of all the cities.".... The fact that unemployment is high...poverty, difficult to say weather crime makes places poorer or poverty causes more crime....low educational attainment also goes hand in hand.....climate plays a roll...warmer weather tends to aggravate the occurrence of violent crimes....John Rotton, a psychologist with Florida International University conducted a study based on 858 U. S. cities , he found that hot, dry weather was a significant factor in predicting crime as well as economic factors or population density.Rape, robbery and murder were all more likely to occur on warm days than on cold, or rainy days .. FBI "Crime in the United States" report also targets climate as an important factor in crime rates , along with distressed neighborhoods.

Why, because blacks have noting better to do than sit on the porch or street corner wasting for someone to assault or attempt to kill on a hot day or night /. Socioeconomics has nothing to do with their uncivilized behavior. They are so immersed in the culture of gangs and drugs violence is all they know...or care to know.
Time to stop giving them a free pass and make them accountable for their own actions
according to you "money for studies" are ludicrous....That's your opinion,....Statistics ( studies ) shows that arrested offenders by race nationally are as follows.....Whites - 6,502,919 _%69.3 ......Blacks -2,649,067_%28.1..........Amer ican Indians _ 135,165 _% 51.4 ......Asian or pacific Islanders - 81,631 -% 1.2........arrests by gender , Males 6,972,023_ 73%......females 2,474,637_ 26.2 %........"Racism " .......... In America Whites commit 70% of all crimes , 60% of violet crimes , 70% of drug users and dealers....yet Blacks are arrested and sent to prison at a rate of 10-1 ...Blacks represent 27% of the criminals yet represent 54% of the criminals in prisons.......this is from the "Human Rights watch " a nonprofit organization which monitors human rights violations around the world.....New York and North Caroline automatically prosecute 16 year olds as adults , sending them to adult prisons,,, this is no laughing matter.,,,,,,,,,Heartless .

New York is one of two states, the other being North Carolina, in which 16-year-olds are automatically tried as adults. This is the case despite overwhelming evidence that sending children into adult courts, rather than the juvenile justice system, needlessly destroys lives and further endangers the public by turning nonviolent youngsters into hardened criminals..........http://www. /when-children-become-criminal s.html

I can guarantee you these stats came from some all black college in the deep south where the only requirement for admittance is being blece and having an IQ over 70.
Tell the truth.. You get these stats form Benedict college in Columbia SC Known for graduating functional illiterates with honors.

• In Colorado, Gov. Bill Ritter, a former district attorney, recently formed a juvenile clemency board to hear cases of kids convicted as adults. The head of the seven-member panel says it's an acknowledgment that teens are still developing and different from adults — a point made in the 2005 U.S. Supreme Court decision that outlawed the death penalty for crimes committed as juveniles.

..Mr/Mrs/Miss Tomanymistakes...,, I don't see any where ,where it says " black" children are flooding the prisons......I do see "children " are being prosecuted as adults ........I am sorry that you feel the need to always play the race card, for shame , for shame.......... In California and Michigan, life without parole for teens also is getting another look. This spring, a state Senate panel in California approved a plan offering the chance of freedom after 25 years. A package of bills that would ban the no-parole sentence for those under 18 and revamp the process allowing juveniles to be tried as adults awaits a hearing in Michigan.

• In Connecticut, lawmakers recently raised the age of juveniles to 18 for most cases; the changes will be phased in by 2010. Prosecutors can still transfer felonies to adult court.

• Legislator Michael Lawlor said 16- and 17-year-olds charged with misdemeanors such as shoplifting and vandalism were hindered when they applied for jobs or college. "This caused people to think ... should all of these cases be adult all the time?" he says. Those records are now sealed.

• In Illinois, a proposal to move 17-year-olds charged with misdemeanors to juvenile court passed in the state Senate and is pending in the House.

• In 2005, the state repealed the automatic transfer of kids to adult court for drug violations within 1,000 feet of public housing or schools. An advocacy group found virtually all the kids caught in this statewide law were minorities from Cook County; about two-thirds were first-time offenders — a population, it argued, that could benefit from juvenile court.

• In Wyoming, talks are underway to shed a system that routinely charges and jails juveniles as adults even for minor offenses such as underage drinking. One idea is to have judges, prosecutors and social workers evaluate first-time offenders and find treatment — mostly, without sending them to jail.

Not all states are easing up.

Rhode Island headed in the opposite direction — at least, temporarily. Last summer, the state passed a law to send 17-year-old criminal offenders to adult prisons in what was intended as a cost-cutting move. The measure, however, was repealed about four months later after some critics pointed out this plan probably would be more expensive..

Do not accuse me of fabricating stories........if you took the time to read thing other than the funnies you would too.......... The New York Center for Juvenile Justice ...... "Every year in the state of New York more than 40,000 youth are arrested and prosecuted as adults. The state views 16- and 17-year-olds as adults for criminal law purposes, and it also prosecutes children 13-, 14-, and 15-year-olds as adults when they are accused of certain crimes. Prosecuting children as adults undermines their unique potential to overcome adversities and learn from mistakes made at a young age. Children tried as adults are exposed to a lifetime stigma of a criminal record and denied opportunities to receive age appropriate support. Furthermore, in New York, 16- and 17-year-olds are held in adult facilities." ..........I could say you are narrow minded and only see black and black instead of the norm black and white.....but I won't go there.

@ Tomanymistakes.......... In Wyoming, talks are underway to shed a system that routinely charges and jails juveniles as adults even for " minor " offenses such as underage drinking. One idea is to have judges, prosecutors and social workers evaluate " first-time offenders " and find treatment — mostly, without sending them to jail..........Do you not see where teenagers are being tired as adults not only in Wyoming, New York , North Carolina but other states as well........Yes , the crime should fit the time...... but ,there is a difference if a child steals a piece of gum ( even thou it is wrong ) than a child that commits murder .,,,,,,,cold blooded murder committed by juveniles should be treated as taking a life and should be prosecuted as such.......accidental murder by a juvenile , which a case here in Dayton is pending where a child took a loaded gun ( the child not knowing the gun was loaded ) to a friends house , the friend is playing around with the gun and accidentally shots himself and dies,, the child that took the gun to the friends house id charged with murder, even there he did not shot the boy or did he know the gun was loaded, should this child be prosecuted as an adult ?.........I have seen cases where someone is doing jail time for felonious assault and the next guy gets 5 years in prison for committing the same crime ..........Children should not be tired as adults in the courts for crimes that are misdemeanors, every thing should be done to rehabilitate juveniles to the best of ones ability ,( after all there are our future ) and not push them to the wolfs , I am sorry that you do not agree with my way of thinking ... New York and other states send juveniles to adults prisons because it is cheaper to house then in adult prisons than to send them to juveniles correctional facility or rehabilitation facilities ...Drug induced crimes such be treated as such....not all crimes such be treated the same. there are different degrees of crime within the same element of crime.

After reading this story it does seem to be a case of premeditated murder, after an evaluation of this child's mental capacity and he is found capable of standing trail and this case will more than likely not go to trail until after his 18th birthday than I say prosecute him as an adult, it was a brutal crime......should be charged with misuse of a corpse.. tapering with evidence, as well.

Stoop Nagin, former Mayor of New Orleans, sentenced to 10 years for 21 convictions mostly taking bribes.
This is the Clown Prince who along with the Dimrat Governor of Louisiana decided to ignore Federal orders to evacuate the city before Katrina. The school and municipal buses that could have been used to help evacuate were left sitting to be destroyed by the hurricane water. But, as we all know, IT WAS BUSH's fault.

<quoted text> Crimes nevertheless , How can you justify the amount of violence blacks commit regardless of if it is with their own race,
The costs to the taxpayer is astounding not only in Police manpower, but in the cost of treating the wounded.. The average bill for a gunshot victim is 56K of taxpayer dollars
I;m not justifying anything.....the same tax dollar it takes to prosecute the black person also goes to prosecute the white person ...why are you ignoring the fact that whites commit crime by always blaming the black man.....say for example there are 100 black men and out of that 100 60% commits a crime..... then you have 200 white men and 80 % of those white men commits a crime ......which race committed the most crime ? and Why is that ?
