Detroit reports highest homicide rate in 20 years

By Ron Recinto | Yahoo! News – 15 hrs ago

Violent crime in Detroit shadows the landscape like its rows of abandoned buildings, but now the city faces a new precedent, even as gun-related killings decline nationwide: More people were killed here last year than at any time in the past 20 years.

"America has a problem with guns, but the epicenter seems to be here in Detroit," Interim Detroit Police Chief Chester Logan said at a news conference Thursday, as city officials reported 386 criminal homicides in 2012, the highest since 1992.

"As the chief of police in the city of Detroit, I take a certain amount of blame for the spiraling gunplay in the city," he said, "but one of the things you should realize, and everybody here in this room should realize, is that gunplay is a national problem.”

As usual, the comments section of the article are golden. Laugh So basically, despite the numbers that show these crimes are related to drugs and a direct correlation with broken homes and the environment these politician's and city leaders have created for it's citizens, they blame the gun. It gets better though, they claim tougher gun laws for the entire nation would make the magical city of Camelot, I mean Detroit, oh so much better. You just can't make this stuff up! Every time these Liberals open their mouths, it's like winning the "stupid" lottery or discovering a goldmine of stupidity. 😈

The modern definition of ‘racist’ is someone who’s winning an argument with a liberal.

I have to wonder how much all the crime has to do with people out of work, broke, not living the sold upon them, "American Dream"...

A great deal I bet.
