Memphis Commercial Appeal's "Wounded City" Series on Gun Violence Fails to Note Blacks are Suspects in Almost Every Fatal/Nonfatal Shooting in the 65% Black City

So the Memphis Commercial Appeal is doing a six-part series into violence in the 65% black city called "Wounded City: A Special Investigation of the Commercial Appeal Exploring Memphis' Gun Violence Problem."

Memphis, of course, doesn't have a gun violence problem, it has a black violence problem.

We get an editorial from the Memphis Commercial Appeal, LOOKING AT MEMPHIS’ BROADENING EPIDEMIC OF GUN ASSAULTS, but this piece fails to note the racial group behind primarily every nonfatal and fatal shooting: blacks.
The paper can't admit blacks are behind almost the violence in Memphis is the same paper that apologized for noting Black Lives Matter influenced black male targeted white cops in Dallas in July of 2016

We learn in the first installment, Murder Mystery: When Does it Stop?, that commercial interests in the 65% black city keep the tourists areas - where white people flock to spend money and help create a semblance of an economy in the city - a veritable army of police and surveillance equipment is deployed to stop black criminality from destroying this cash cow:
According to 2015 FBI statistics, Memphis’ rate ranked 12th among 112 cities with at least a 200,000 population, well behind St. Louis, Baltimore, Detroit and New Orleans, but at 21 deaths per 100,000 residents far exceeding national and state averages. 
Even with its record, 228 homicides last year (the murder rate, still not officially calculated, is expected to exceed 29, the highest in 23 years), the city still won’t top the list, but the granular details lay bare any relief Memphis can feel for having shed its once perennial label as the nation’s deadliest city: 
Eight of ten homicide victims over the past decade were killed with a firearm. More than 800 shooting victims have died at the Regional Medical Center since 2006. 
Victims arrive at the hospital’s Elvis Presley Memorial Trauma Center with far more wounds than a decade ago, reflecting the availability of semiautomatic weapons. 
The shooters are getting younger: on average 23 now versus 26 just eight years ago. 
While Downtown, the epicenter of Memphis’ $3 billion-a-year tourism business, is routinely deemed safe because of the blanket of police protection and cameras, that description is relative amid such violence: there were 14 homicides recorded in five years. 
Within a two-mile radius of Graceland, a magnet for international visitors, an additional 29 died, according to the newspaper’s analysis; none on Elvis Presley Boulevard or near the mansion but in the surrounding neighborhoods.
Combining MPD homicide records and census data over a five-year stretch between 2011 and 2015, the newspaper found 48 census tracts where the murder rate topped 30 per 100,000 — six times the national rate — largely the result of a toxic mix of economic decline and easy access to firearms. 
Over those five years, no neighborhood recorded a higher murder rate than Klondike in North Memphis, where a devastating exodus of residents began in the 1970s as nearby industry shuttered.
Oddly no mention of the race of the individuals behind the violence is mentioned in the article (collectively showcasing just which racial group might just - perhaps - have a predisposition for violence) or the series save one slip... one tiny slip of the truth.

We learn between 2006-2015 in 65% black Memphis, 25,042 assault victims had been reported to have been shot or shot at in the city. This isn't a war zone... it's just a 65% black city, where black people commit virtually all of the violent crime. In the second part of the series, "Terror in the Air: It's Bad Out There, Y'all," we learn the race of the victims of those assault victims:

In all, more than 25,000 assault victims were listed by MPD as shot or shot at between 2006 and 2015; more than enough to fill every seat at the city’s three major Downtown venues — FedExForum, The Orpheum and the Memphis Cook Convention Center’s Cannon Center. Another 3,400 robbery victims were shot or shot at - 28,400 victims in all. 
Of them, 6,258 were transported to a medical facility — on average more than one a day for the 10 years examined. The victims were most often African-American (93 percent), young (median age 24), and male (88 percent). “It’s driving the violent crime (rate) up,” said retired University of Memphis criminologist Richard Janikowski, who consulted with the Memphis Police Department for years. 
“We can try to explain it away in a couple of different ways, but the reality is Memphis has a lot of aggravated assault. “People just need to confront that. … If you aren’t willing to grapple with that you’re never going to be able to design effective intervention, prevention or policing strategies.’’
Contrary to the media and Hollywood who perpetuate this popular trope, there are virtually no white on black homicides in America nor white on black nonfatal shootings. Especially in 65% black Memphis, almost all of the crime/homicides/nonfatal shootings are black on black, with provocative museum exhibits in the city trying to convince blacks to stop killing other blacks.

93 percent of those transported to a medical facility were black, but the Memphis Commercial Appeal makes no effort to tell us who was responsible for the shootings.

A gun isn't the problem, as it's just the tool used in an assault. The problem is the person pulling the trigger, and we know virtually every person arrested for a homicide or nonfatal shooting in Memphis is black.

So why is the Memphis Commercial Appeal afraid to document the truth about just who/whom is responsible for the violence in the city of Memphis (hint: blacks)?

Probably the same reason the editor of the same paper issued an apology for noting white police officers were targeted in Dallas for their belonging to a racial group without a voice or an advocacy group.

Guns aren't killing Memphis.

Guns aren't the reason police form an army around heavily trafficked tourist areas in the city.

Blacks are killing Memphis.

Blacks are the reason police form an army around heavily trafficked tourist areas in the city.

$10.9 Million: The Combined Amount of Money Families of Freddie Gray, Michael Brown and Philando Castile Received in Settlements

Posthumously, it pays to be a black criminal:



Freddie Gray was a heroin dealer, who should have been in jail.

Michael Brown tried to kill Darren Wilson.

Philando Castile refused to cooperate with police.

All in all, in death they are worth a combined $10.9 million.

Oh, and Tamir Rice's family got $6 million from the city of Cleveland.

This is why we coined the term of America being irredeemable long before Hillary Clinton decided to use this rarely used adjective to describe Trump supporters.

Pittsburgh is 64.8 percent white and 26 percent black... in 2015, 93 percent of known homicide suspects were nonwhite

Pittsburgh is 64.8 percent white and 26 percent black... in 2015, 93 percent of known homicide suspects were nonwhite (low clearance rate in the city for homicides, entirely due to the black population protecting black criminals).


Here's the simple truth: 85 percent of the city's 311 homicides between 2010 - 2015 had a black victim and 97 percent of the unsolved homicides (143) had a black victim. Judging by the racial data of known homicide offenders, it's quite clear close to 90 percent of homicides in the city of Pittsburgh are committed by blacks. 
Homicide suspects in the city 65 percent white city of Pittsburgh for 2015... 93 percent are nonwhite 


Why make this assertion? 

Because the City of Pittsburgh Department of Safety Annual Report actually breaks down violent crimes arrests by race, presenting the discernible individual with a picture of the racial reality of crime in the 64.8 percent white and 26 percent black city...

So here's the data for 2015, a year where police brass bragged about Black Lives Matter allied organizations holding conventions in the city:

  • 65 percent of those arrested for rape were black
  • 72 percent of those arrested for robbery were black
  • 70 percent of those arrested for aggravated assault were black
  • 54 percent of those arrested for burglary were black
  • 80 percent of those arrested for weapons offenses were black
  • Of known homicide offenders (33 of the 56 homicides had no suspect… a reminder of the black community’s propensity to participate in the practice of no snitching), 81.82 percent of those arrested were black



  • 65 percent of those arrested for rape were black
  • 80 percent of those arrested for robbery were black
  • 68 percent of those arrested for aggravated assault were black
  • 60 percent of those arrested for burglary were black
  • 83 percent of those arrested for weapons offenses were black
  • Of known homicide offenders (24 of the 71 homicides had no suspect… a reminder of the black community’s propensity to participate in the practice of no snitching), 83 percent of those arrested were black




  • 78.5 percent of those arrested for rape were black
  • 75 percent of those arrested for robbery were black
  • 69 percent of those arrested for aggravated assault were black
  • 55 percent of those arrested for burglary were black
  • 81 percent of those arrested for weapons offenses were black
  • Of known homicide offenders (16 of the 46 homicides had no suspect… a reminder of the black community’s propensity to participate in the practice of no snitching), 76 percent of those arrested were black
Remember: Pittsburgh is nearly 65 percent white and only 28 percent black.
For 2012:
  • 70 percent of those arrested for rape were black
  • 75 percent of those arrested for robbery were black
  • 64 percent of those arrested for aggravated assault were black
  • 59 percent of those arrested for burglary were black
  • Numbers for arrests for weapons offenses not available 
  • Of known homicide offenders (21 of the 40 homicides had no suspect) 84 percent of those arrested were black
For 2011:
  • 89 percent of those arrested for rape were black
  • 73.4 percent of those arrested for robbery were black
  • 67 percent of those arrested for aggravated assault were black
  • 54.6 percent of those arrested for burglary were black
  • 80.7 percent of those arrested for weapons offenses were black
  • of known homicide offenders (17 of the 43 homicides had no suspect) 84.6 percent of those arrested were black
For 2010:
  • 63 percent of those arrested for rape were black
  • 76.8 percent of those arrested for robbery were black
  • 65.4 percent of those arrested for aggravated assault were black
  • 61.4 percent of those arrested for burglary were black
  • 81.7 percent of those arrested for weapons offenses were black
  • of known homicide offenders (18 of the 57 homicides had no suspect) 89.7 percent of those arrested were black
Violent crime in the 65 percent white city of Pittsburgh is largely committed by blacks, who represent a clear minority of residents. It is this racial group whose contributions of lawlessness are keeping homicide detectives busy. 

Again... what are the benefits of diversity? Why do we continue to pretend the black population of America is our greatest untapped asset instead of the most obvious liability on not just our present, but our future?

Confirmed: In 60% Black New Orleans, Almost 99% of Homicides and Nonfatal Shootings Committed by Blacks

Sometimes you find a sliver of data, a piece of a puzzle you thought was permanently missing. 

In New Orleans, a 60 percent black city, long have I looked for police data on the race of suspects involved in homicides and nonfatal. 

Again, if - via pattern recognition - observable facts can be gathered regarding a particular racial groups penchant for violence, then wouldn't it be prudent to pass laws protecting other (docile) racial groups from this wanton chaos? 


Wait... those laws did exist once to protect white southerners. 

Anyways, the puzzle piece was found. It's called the MAYOR’S STRATEGIC COMMAND TO REDUCE MURDERS 2012-2013 Summary Report: Murders and Non-Fatal Shootings New Orleans, LA .

In it, we learn some important facts: 



  • New Orleans has a low clearance rate for both homicides and non-fatal shootings (37.6% and 24.3% respectively). 
  • What's definite is the race of the victims (91.9% of homicide victims were black and 93.8% of nonfatal shooting victims were black)
  •  Of known murder suspects, 94.9% were black and of known nonfatal shooting suspects, and 95.5% of nonfatal shootings suspects were black. With just over 60 percent of homicides unsolved and more than 75% of nonfatal shootings unsolved (and with violence involving a white suspect normally solved quickly because it involves either a spouse or family member), it's quite obvious blacks are responsible for close 98% of homicides and nonfatal 99% of nonfatal shootings in New Orleans. Call the major of error plus or minus 3.5....
Here's the data:



Murder Victims
As illustrated in Graph 25 (below) and Graph 26 (page 42), victims were predominantly male (88.2%) and African-American (91.9%). Across all victims, the mean age was 30.0 years (median: 27.0, range: 1-99). About one-fifth of victims (19.7%) were under the age of 21, 36.7% were aged 21-29, 43.6% were aged 30 years of age or older (see Graph 27 on page 42).
The majority of victims had a documented history of ever being arrested (79.8%; see Graph 28 on page 43), about half had ever been arrested on a drug-related charge (54.6%; see Graph 29 on page 43), slightly less than a third had ever been arrested on a gun-related charge (30.3%; see Graph 30 on page 44), and 12.4% had been convicted of a gun-related charge (see Graph 31 on page 44). 



Murder Suspects (based on cleared 2012-2013 cases through January 6, 2014)
As seen in Graph 32 (below), 37.6% of murders that occurred in 2012-2013 were cleared as of January 6, 2014 (includes cases cleared by arrest, warrant, or indictment; officer-related shooting; or suicide)4. Almost half (44.5%) of the murdered victims had no identified suspects as of this date, while 17.9% of murder victims had an identified suspect who had not yet been charged. In all, 157 unique suspects had been arrested for 2012-2013 murders as of January 6, 2014. These arrests cleared 129 murder victims across 119 unique incidents. 


As shown in Graph 33 (page 46), most suspects who were arrested for a murder that occurred in 2012-2013 were male (86.6%) and African-American (94.9%; see Graph 34 on page 46). Over two-fifths of the suspects (42.0%) were under the age of 21 (median=22.0 years; mean=24.0 years; range: 14-55) (see Graph 35 on page 47). We also examined the age difference of victims and suspects (see Graph 36 on page 47). Two-thirds (65.5%) of suspects were younger than their victims, 6.5% were the same age, and 28.0% were older than their victims. On average, suspects were 5.1 years younger than their victim (median: 5.0 years younger; range: -48 to +38 years). 



Non-Fatal Shooting Victims
As illustrated in Graph 55 (below), victims were predominantly male (87.9%) and African-American (93.8%; see Graph 56 on page 65). Across all victims, the mean age was 25.5 years (median: 23.0, range: 4-67). Over one-third of victims (37.7%) were under the age of 21, 35.5% were aged 21-29, 26.6% were 30 years of age or older (see Graph 57 on page 65). Two victims’ age remain unknown. 



NON-FATAL SHOOTING SUSPECTS (cleared cases through January 6, 2014)
As seen in Graph 62 (page 69), 24.3% of non-fatal shooting cases that occurred during 2012-2013 were cleared as of January 6, 2014 (includes cases cleared by arrest, warrant, or indictment; officer-related shooting; or suicide)5. Almost three-fourths (73.1%) of the cases had no identified suspects as of this date, while 2.6% of cases had an identified suspect who had not yet been charged. In all, 155 unique suspects had been arrested for non-fatal shootings that occurred during 2012-2013 as of January 6, 2014. These arrests cleared 172 non-fatal shooting victims across 116 unique incidents.
Most suspects who were arrested for a 2012-2013 non-fatal shooting were male (90.3%) and African-American (95.5%) (see Graph 63 on page 69 and Graph 64 on page 70). Over two-fifths of the suspects (45.2%) were under the age of 21 and 82.0% were under the age of 30 (median=21.0 years; mean=24.3 years; range: 14-62) (see Graph 65 on page 70). We also examined the age difference of victims and suspects (see Graph 66 on page 71). Half (49.8%) of suspects were younger than their victims, 10.0% were the same age, and 40.3% were older than their victims. On average, suspects were 2.1 years younger than their victim (median: 0.0 years younger; range: -42 to +34 years). 


It shouldn't be hard: when almost all gun violence - homicides and nonfatal shootings, as verified by the mayor of New Orleans strategic command to reduce violence - is committed by blacks, shouldn't our legislative efforts be to not only disarm blacks, but protect the dwindling white population of NOLA from black violence? 

Our missing puzzle piece for violence in present-day New Orleans helps us understand why white southerners long ago passed laws to protect their lives, property and posterity from noticeable levels of black crime/dysfunction then.
