The National Guard, really? Do you realize Chicago and Detroit average about 500 (+) murders a year? The city of Baltimore, which is smaller than Columbus, averages around 300 homicides a year? Come back to earth and watch the news for God's sake before you jump on here spouting off insanity. What color is the sky in your world, and do the Smurfs still rule?

The ONG is in Afghanistan chasing Osama's ghost and blowing **** up. Columbus city government has determined this activity is acceptable and even desirable if federal grants to "fight" or even study the "problem" are available.

The problem is sometimes wanted, as in loved, people catch a stray bullet and die.

Oh, okay. So until we max 300+ nothing should be done? Yes, the National Guard comment was fanatical, but yours isn't producing too many suggestions eiher. 100+ murders for Columbus is saying something, but noone is saying anything, and until [we] do, nothing will change.

500 murders a year. Why that is childs play. Go to Nueva Laredo, Texas and you see that many every month.

If you ever want a depressing exhibition of the world's biggest a--holes, losers, jackasses and hypocrites, you can't go wrong with a Dispatch comments section.

I bet whoever this guy is (seeing as we don't even KNOW that yet) will be more missed than most of you would be if someone shot you in your fat, constantly-jabbering faces. You don't seem like the types who pick up friends too readily...

It's 104, and the National Guard would do what exactly?? Unless you wish to post a soldier in each home in Columbus...More government is never the answer, persoanl responsibility is.

113 might be a little high. This month started off looking like 113, but the cold weather seemed to halt some of the senseless killing. 107 could be the magic number.

Dude was probably in the wrong place at the wrong time, smoking dope with the wrong people. It was one big unlucky coincidence.

It was my understanding that crime overall is down, but assault and murder rates are up this year.

Well, genius, I was not offering suggestions at how to fix all of societies problems; I was simply responding to an ignorant comment about calling in the National Guard because a city of nearly a million people had a hundred murders within a year's span. She wants to institute martial law and sounds like she is holed up in her basement out of pure fear. Maybe you can go join her. I, for one, will not miss either of you.

First of all this isn't Baltimore or Chicago or Detroit so I don't care how many murders they have. I do care how many Columbus has. The National Gaurd is a little over the top I do admit. But our fine mayor Mr Coleman just keeps moving Police around trying to see what works. Our yes man Police Chief just does whatever Coleman tells him. Let have them all sit down and come up with some solutions and stop worrying about the next election.

An excellent point and well made! The "If you think Columbus is bad it's a lot worse in XYZ" comments deflect the discussion away from what should be important to us in Central Ohio. This is happening in OUR town! We are at 104 or 105 murders in our town and people are acting like it's no big deal. "It was a dealer, a drunk, a hooker, a black, a Mexican, a hillbilly or whatever" does not make it OK! I have cracked wise about the end of the year body count but the fact remains each of those numbers was a person and to turn it into a joke shows a callous lack of concern for others. I am as guilty as many others and I will not contribute to this heartlessness any longer. Mayor Coleman, City Council, Police Chief Distelzweig and citizens of Columbus, we have a problem. Can we as a city fix it or will we continue with business as usual and just hope it's not us or someone we love that becomes a statistic?

The problem is that our police leadership has been anything but leaders. They have been so concerned about enforcing minor violations that have demoralized the entire division. The net effect has been that officers in important areas have disengaged in areas they are needed the most. Columbus is the new detroit
