    From what I've read this was totally arbitrary. A defenseless 89 year old WWII Veteran was attacked and left for dead by two POS sub-human animals. Delbert Belton survived being wounded in the Battle of Okinawa to die like this.

    THIS is what conceal carry is for, to exterminate POS scum like these two thugs.
    Sounds like to those two thugs cared about him as much as the US gummint.

    When you are desperate you don't care about the laws and poverty breeds desperation.

    What you're doing is defining down bad behaviour and choices of a group of individuals. People like you have been doing it for decades and its why those areas continue to struggle.

    It comes down to the choices a individual makes, poverty is a consequence of some of those choices and per capita, blacks commit more crime than whites.

    That doesn't mean all blacks are criminals and all whites are saints.
    I said nothing about race in my post, I was strictly looking at poverty rates and Monroe and Alexandria LA both have double the murder rate of Chicago.

    If poverty was, in fact, "the factor" in predicting crime rates then explain the super high crime rates (or lack thereof) in these poorest areas of the U.S.:

    List of the poorest places in the United States - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Now look at the income statistics for your "poor" areas of LA

    Monroe, Louisiana (LA) profile: population, maps, real estate, averages, homes, statistics, relocation, travel, jobs, hospitals, schools, crime, moving, houses, news

    Alexandria, Louisiana (LA) profile: population, maps, real estate, averages, homes, statistics, relocation, travel, jobs, hospitals, schools, crime, moving, houses, news

    What pops out, to me, is the combination of both race (black %) and urban having the larger effect on crime, not income.

    If you don't think 19K/yr is poverty than you haven't lived in poverty before.

    We live on $350/week ($18K/year) so I think that I do understand very well what that is like. Again you ignore that many places in the US have incomes far below that level and yet are not high crime areas.

    Not all those places have the disparity of income, usually seen in cities where poverty is high. You won't see crime when there isn't anything there.

    See here is the thing, there are lots of rural areas that have no money available but they also have no people there, or a small enough people per sq mile you might not see your neighbor for days. When there is no one around to compare to there won't be a high crime rate. Family members on a farm don't generally murder each other, unless its for money or love.

    Then we can agree that poverty alone is not the issue? Is it not, in fact, easier to commit crime when nobody is likely to be there to witness it?

    It perfectly illustrates my point.

    EVERY suburb EVERYWHERE has more income and less crime?..are you SURE?
    Why are you focusing on "inner city"..My post showed it was the ENTIRE city.

    Irrelevant to the discussion..More evasion and obfuscation.

    ALL of them? Are you SURE? Why would that be, if it's true?

    I never said anything of the sort. I just posted the facts. You can imply/infer whatever you want.

    Address the point and debunk it if you can.

    the most dangerous cities in America have the most minorities. The safest have the fewest minorities.
