    It did.
    Yes it did but you cannot prove it was the article which made crack addiction go up.

    It was gonna go up with or without such coverage so it was probably best to get the word out

    There is no Knock out Game. Just like there is no Mafia.

    I guess now we know why we have States and statism, privateers can't always handle their Individual Liberty responsibly.

    There sure were a lot of murders depicted on that website you posted. Just as the violent crime rate for the city of Rochester seems to be ducking the decade long national trends and is double the average violent crime rate.
    Rochester Crime Statistics: New York (NY) - CityRating.com

    Or...did you mean JUST on that one street? Knowing nothing about the city (but having ready access to Google) it would appear that Genesee Street is where it is at for the shootings and such.

    Just as lynching in the south are primarily a white on black crime this activity is primarily black on white.

    A few exceptions do not change this.

    Rochester certainly was bad for homicides a few years back; however, the rate has been trending sharply downward, in line with the national average.

    Violent crime in the U.S. has been sharply decreasing for several years.

    I posted a link that shows otherwise. Yes...some parts of the country are definitely trending downward. Rochesters violent crime spiked in 2006 but it shows steady increases. rochester-violent-crime.png

    Violent crime has gone slightly up. Murders are slightly down.
