I’m sticking this here for Paul Kersey:
“8. Atlanta, Ga.
> Violent crimes per 1,000: 14.3
> Population: 425,533
> 2011 murders: 88
> Median income: $41,631
> Unemployment rate:12.1%
Compared to most American cities, Atlanta has extremely high incidences of both violent and property crimes. The city’s 8.27 aggravated assaults per 1,000 people is one of the 10 highest rates among the country’s largest cities, as is the city’s 70.84 property crimes per 1,000 people. Atlanta also has one of the nation’s highest rates of motor vehicle theft, with a total of 5,371 incidents in the city last year. Vehicle theft likely will remain an issue throughout 2012 as well; in March almost 100 individuals were arrested as part of a single auto theft operation.”
Note: In The Color of Crime: Atlanta, OD’s investigation into violent crime in “The City Too Busy To Hate” revealed that African-Americans were responsible for 100 percent of homicide, 95 percent of rape, 94 percent of robbery, 84 percent of aggravated assault, and 93 percent of burglary.
Da ATL is among some good company: #10. Stockton (40.3 percent Hispanic, 12.2 percent black), #9. Baltimore (63.7 percent black), #7. Birmingham (73.4 percent black), #6. Little Rock (42.3 percent black), #5. Memphis (63.3 percent black), #4. Oakland (28 percent black, 25.4 percent Hispanic), #3. St. Louis (49.2 percent black), #2. Detroit (82.7 percent black), and #1. Flint (56.6 percent black).
I’m shocked that New Orleans, Richmond, Chicago, Philadelphia, and Milwaukee didn’t make the Top 10. Those cities are also blessed by tons of free negroes. I’m betting they all made the Top 25 Most Violent Cities though.
Here’s Thomas Jefferson’s indictment of King George III in the Declaration of Independence: “He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavored to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian savages, whose known rule of warfare, is undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.”
What would a Declaration of Independence from BRA look like? Do we have any grievances against Washington here in the South? Who is more violent? The free negroes in our major cities or the merciless Indian savages of our frontiers?
We know that the black residents of Chicago (which is not even in the Top 10 most violent cities) are more violent than the Taliban in Afghanistan.
