    Would be interesting to note the majority of ethnic groups that reside within those particular places.
    But silly me, that would not be politically correct now would it??

    The only defense (or should that be goverment-dictated oppression) for Michigan is that between the required class and fees to obtain a concealed carry permit, you have a minimum of $200 out-of-pocket, plus your gun/ammo. Many folks with little extra money simply can't afford it. Plus, although legal, the stereotypical Detroit or Flint citizen open-carrying would probably get the police called, if not a facefull of pavement when the cops arrived.

    Yes, it would be silly to blame violent crime on all the white people:

    Springfield white residents - 81.0%
    Lubbock white residents - 72.87%
    Ankorage white residents - 69.8%
    Las Vegas white residents - 62.1%
    Rockford white residents - 65.1%
    Tallahassee white residents - 57.4%

    So what you are implying is that white people are the root of all our crime problems. We must then collect all the white people and re-distribute them so that every city has an equal distribution.

    That's what I've been trying to say! Poverty and population density. People get cramped and desperate, and they get violent. Though in Anchorage I think it has a lot to do with a higher ratio of men and alcoholics.
    Ton up!

    Memphis is #2 again. They just can't get over the hump to beat Detroit. The criminals need a new coach lol.
