You people are slacking off. Chicago now has 500 murders for 2012 and still counting. You have lost the title. Wats up with that ?

I don't think you understand the math. Chicago has 2.7 million people and 500 murders. Detroit has 700,000 people and 375 murders.

And even with regard to Jaurez we're holding our own. While they did have 3,000 in a recent year, they are down to about 700 through September and they have 1.3 million people. They are going down though and we are going up.

If you view the interactive map of homicide in Detroit, you can see that the murders are very evenly distributed over the whole geographic area. There are not pockets of murder where you could address a cause such as drugs or gangs. It's the entire city. This highly suggests that it's the people and the culture of crime that is the cause. That won't change quickly. Many black leaders have said EXACTLY what I just stated.

I just noticed that NYC has only 400 murders and almost 12 times the population of Detroit. Of course there's only 28% black in the 2000 Census.
