It's no longer debatable that if Milwaukee didn't have a black population the city would be one of America's most desirable major cities to live in (instead, firefighters get shot while they are out rescuing people).
But it does have a black population (out of just under 600,000 people, the city is 40 percent black and 37 percent white); and because of the individual contributions of black people, Milwaukee is one of America's most dangerous cities to live in. [As homicides climb, no 'simple answers to complex problems', Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, July 6, 2015]:
An online squabble about a girl ramped up to in-person drama. Someone pulled a 9-mm handgun, and a 14-year-old boy who had nothing to do with the original dispute was shot in the head.
It all happened after the boy, Tariq Akbar, and his friends watched the annual July 3 fireworks at the lakefront.
Tariq is now one of 80 homicide victims in the city so far this year, including six who were slain over the holiday weekend. It's nearly double the number the city had reached by this time last year.
"Too many people want to pretend there are simple answers to complex problems," Milwaukee Police Chief Edward Flynn said Monday of the surge in homicides. "There aren't."
The leading factors in the city's homicides this year have been arguments or fights. The three most common reasons for the arguments or fights: respect, unknown factors and jealously, usually about a girlfriend or boyfriend, according to the city's Homicide Review Commission.Hmm... poor impulse control, low IQ, and virtually non-existent future-time orientation (oh, and toxic levels of testosterone) are the primary reasons black individuals commit violence. We know this because Chief Flynn once blasted black people for the violence in Milwaukee:
Actually, black people are responsible for virtually EVERY fatal and nonfatal shooting in Milwaukee. Courtesy of the Milwaukee Homicide Review Commission 2014 Annual Report, black people were suspects in 86 percent of the homicides and 85 percent of the non-fatal shootings.
Strangely, the Milwaukee Homicide Review Commissions has started to label Latinos as "White Hispanics" (thanks George Zimmerman), but while whites made up 8 percent of the homicide victims they only made up 4 percent of the suspects in 2014; and while white people were seven percent of the non-fatal shooting victims, they were only 3 percent of the suspects in these shootings...
Indeed, blacks have a homicide victimization rate of 28.4 per 100,000 in Milwaukee while white people have a homicide victimization rate of 3.2 per 100,000 (the hilarious George Zimmerman category of White Hispanic have a homicide victimization rate of 9.7 per 100,000.
It should be noted Black males alone ages 18-29, have a homicide victimization rate at 128.8 per 100,000 inhabitants in the city (with virtually every one of these having a black suspect).
For shooting rate in 2014, blacks in Milwaukee have a shooting victimization rate of 217.9 per 100,000; white people have a rate of 18.1 per 100,000 (though it seems most of the people shooting whites are non-whites); and the George Zimmerman approved category of White Hispanic have a shooting victimization rate of 31.9 per 100,000.
It should be noted Black males alone ages 18-29, have a shooting victimization rate at 1,273.0 per 100,000 inhabitants in the city (with virtually every one of these having a black suspect).
White people (and even the honorary George Zimmerman birthed category "White Hispanic") live in a world of virtual non-violence, while Milwaukee is plagued by black people and the violence they seem to breed wherever they are found in America.
Sorry Milwaukee Police Chief Flynn, the problem of violence in Milwaukee isn't "complex." The problem, like any math theorem, can be easily proven by established facts: it's black people.
