Do you think there is a correlation between the high murder rate, extreme poverty, and low graduation rate for black males???

Hey dummy, that's because Buffalo has a larger population than Rochester. Rochester got the title due to its murder rate per capita

Then Rochester should also get the title of Loser Capital for pitiful number of misses and mere wounding compared to the number of shot's fired YTD.

This shooting was not a typical Rochester shooting.
It happened in the suburb of W.Webster right on the lake, NOT in the city limits.
It involved a white shooter and white victims.
Not the typical black shooters and victims that Rochester is accustomed to.
This wasn't over drug dealing, gang activity, turf war, a woman, robbery or being dissed at a party - that normally precedes a Rochester shooting.

I agree we are not the leader not by the actual number. We are very high up on the list per capita. Rochester is a relatively small city compared to Buffalo and NYC. Even though it is the third biggest in New York State. The only two bigger are NYC then Buffalo. Anyways, for the amount of citizens Rochester has, it has a lot more violent crimes and murders than it should. That's all.

You sound ignorant. Especially since her last opponent in 2012 was none other than Maggie Brooks who has been the Monroe County Executive for the past 15 years.( That's at a minimum, idk the exact number but it is higher.) But anyways she has been the County executive for that long and the rates has not declined since she started. Its her city, she's there every day whereas Louise is in Albany and DC most of the time. Maggie is there every day. It is her job to address issues in the County. Since Rochester is the county Seat she has failed. 100 percent failure.

The bodies are stacked up , and guess what they are Black dead people .

Heroine over doses are not VIOLENT murders ....

Blacks lead the Nation for VIOLENT OFFENSES , murder is just 1 particular crime they commit daily in the nation. And they are only a minority of the population .
