"There are several reasons for Chicago's high violent crime rate. Guns are cheap and readily available."
Really now? there is not a single gun store within city limits, no CCW laws on the books, some of the strictest gun laws in the country.
BUT because of these laws criminals get their guns on the street. When you ban something only criminals have it.

There's no surprise, they're all ghetto...meaning all black.  What's the surprise?  Who shoots and murders more people in the U.S. every year?  Not the camoflauge hat wearing, pick-up driving rednecks.  The African American population kills the most, period.   They only comprise 13% of the population.  And they worship the psuedo-music that celebrates the killing....rap.

 

What a bunch.  And they all call people like me racist because we speak the truth.

All of these neighborhoods are predominately black or Mexican.

 

Wow. That is a real shock.

Hmmm? Maybe that's the reason all the white folk moved to the suburbs?

Most all of these neighborhoods are run by those benevolent Obama voters. Is there a pattern showing,or what?

LBJ's war on poverty is actually turning into a real war. The Great Society, the worst piece of liberal legislation, and social engineering ever. After 40 years of paying people to be poor and lazy we act surprised that it hasn't produced upright citizens. . . . Must be GW's fault.

I live in the Tulsa area. The neighborhood they noted and crime within is entirely black on black gang related.

Sadly...the gangs in these neighbor hoods will wear this as a badge of honor.

OK, the elephant in the room that the left-wing media won't ever talk about that everyone knows. Most of the crime is generated in black neighborhoods where there is an outlaw, killer cowboy mentality and anti-police attitude.

IRISH:  "The ghetto brings to light how bad government policies are. The one common factor is single parent and low education."  How does policy affect the fact that black men leave their children and people in these neighborhoods choose not to avail themselves of the educational opportunities they have available to them?  It's called personal responsibility.  These people don't do better because they don't WANT to do better.  I live in Kansas City, I work in the urban core and I see it all day, every day.  Gangsta is cool - irresponsibility is cool - taking from others instead of working for your own is cool.

The article says the results 'may surprise you'. No. The article says 'not ghettoized - rather single family homes and small apartments and vacant areas.' Now are we surprised? No. Urban areas, poor. Surprised, now? No. No matter what the 'spin', the results are not surprising at all. Another waste of 'news' space. Another layer of 'let's propagandize'. No surprises. The results Americans already knew. Keep the welfare flowing and the 'poor me' excuses and the self-perpetuating phenomena will continue. And whose responsible for that? Those who are the self-perpetuators and their enablers - the 'hand-out crowd' and the left in government. The people in these areas are too stupid to recognize they create their own problems, and the left in government are too power hungry to tell them the truth.

E. St. Louis, IL should be included in this list.  It's a small city, but the murder rate per capita rivals that of these other cities.

I was surprise that they did not mention east DC and Trenton and Newark NJ. I guess that out of 25 most of the dangerous neighbors, mostly come from the west and center of America.

It's interesting to see a Tulsa neighborhood listed.  I've been telling people for YEARS that Tulsa isn't as shiny and wholesome as everyone is led to believe.

MARKET UPDATE

[BRIEFING.COM] The headlines generally favored Tuesday being another good day for the stock market.  Instead, it was just a mixed day with modest point changes on either side of the unchanged mark for the major indices.

For the most part, the stock market was a sideshow.  The main trading events were seen in the commodity and Treasury markets, both of which saw some decent-sized losses within their respective complex.

Dollar strength was at the heart of the weakness in ... More
