DC is full of democrats and blacks. So is it any surprise that murders are high?

I live in the middle of nowhere. It's not a city, a town, a community nor does it even have an unincorporated name. But as far as I know, there hasn't been a murder anywhere near me for 33 years.

what he said, numbers wise. dc used to alternate with nyc as murder capital of the us.

could be right about the move, fairfax and annandale kowtow to the illegals but prince william chased them into md with a corresponding drop in crime (you guys shouldn't have announced you'd take all the downtrodden chased out by mean old virginny!).

It would require "work".

ETA: But yea, on a serious note; the average Fudd around here reloads some and has at least one safe full. And even though the Fudd ratio is high around here, the gun enthusiast/Black Rifle Fan ratio is also high. In short, gun ownership in WV is so high, it definitely keeps the stats down.

Actually, you could call the lower number is the result of now although hard law abiding people being able to buy guns.

It's largely been pushed in to PG County. A lot of that has to do with the increased police presence from the Verizon Center and Nationals Park.

Honestly, it probably doesn't have much to do with guns either way.

Hasn't the murder rate been going down nationwide for the past 10 or 15 years?

An influx of White people will do that for your city.
D.C. hasn't been majority Black for a couple of years now.

In other news, Baltimore surpassed last years homicide tally this week.

Baltimore is basically a third world country. Real talk: Id go back to Afghanistan before I'd get out of my car anywhere in Bmore except the aquarium

DC has a lot of catching up to do if it wants to compete with Chicago. 436 as of Oct 30!

Turns out a guy that is suspected of shooting a cab driver in DC was also arrested for shooting a couple walking their dog killing the woman.

UPDATE: On Tuesday, Nov. 13 in a 4:30 press conference, Charles County Sheriff’s Office announced to the media that they had arrested, Joshua Terrell Mebane, 17, as a suspect in the Nov. 7 death of a taxicab driver in D.C. Mebane is also being charged in the death of a Waldorf woman, Teresa Bass, last month on Oct. 26.

Mebane was charged with first degree murder and attempted murder in the death of Bass, who was shot while walking the family dog bike path in Waldorf. Bass’ husband was with her at the time of the shooting and was critically injured during the attack.
The arrest was the result of a joint investigation involving Charles County Sheriff and Metropolitan Police. The agencies shared ballistic and other information as part the joint investigation.

Baltimore is a great city with a lot of history, culture and renowned institutions.
Unfortunately, it also has a pest problem.

Nope, still a majority black. They killed themselves off so it had to come down.

Our town has apparently been having some kind of gang war going on all year. Everyday there are several shooting in which the victim was shot in either the leg or foot.

http://www.clrsearch.com/Demographic?state_id=349357&city_id=317119&place=Washington%2c+DC&state=District+of+Columbia&chart=populationbyrace


From Wikipedia:

According to the 2010 Census, the population of Washington, D.C., was 50.7% Black or African American, 38.5% White (34.8% non-Hispanic White), 3.5% Asian, and 0.3% Native American. Individuals from other races made up 4.1% of the District's population while individuals from two or more races made up 2.9%. Hispanics of any race made up 9.1% of the District's population.[84]

In the intervening years that number has dropped below 50%. Washington, D.C. is no longer a majority Black city.
And there was much rending of cloth and gnashing of teeth by the negro community when this was announced and discussed in the media.

It's a cool city, the politics (and to a lesser degree the housing prices) are the only thing keeping me out.

I see what your saying the are not over 50% of the population but they are still the most populous race.
