I'm too lazy, so I just checked detroit, since 1912 14 republicans, 11 democrats, perhaps it's the republicans fault and people are just punishing them voting democrat?
Or perhaps the power alternates and shift throught time and everybody fault and not just the last guy in office?
Who knows, the easiest thing is obviously to say it your fault not mine!
originally posted by: introvertThat's all that is required. There are too many things we have to take in to account before we can definitively say it is the fault of one party or ideology for high crime rates.
This entire approach is just as disingenuous as saying that more red states receive welfare than blue states. While I can provide statistics to show that is the case, there is much more info that must be looked at before deciding Republicans like welfare.
Can you see what the OP is doing now?

Here we have a story that takes some FBI crime statistics and shows the most dangerous U.S. cities are actually heavy Democrat pockets !!
Somebody needs to get to the bottom of the root causes of high crime in America and why it happens in certain areas and not others.
I bet these Democrat cities are also heavy with the regulations.
They're also heavy with the crime-culture and nobody seems to be able to solve the problems even though the wars on crime have been in progress for decades.
Somebody must be benefiting from all this chaos.
They're always talking about gun control in Chicago. And it never seems to work.
With at least 60 murders citywide, last month was the deadliest September in Chicago since 2002, reports the Chicago Tribune.
According to CBS Chicago, the explosion of homicides last month pushed the murder rate for the year to date to 21 percent above last year. Compared to 2014, shooting incidents were up 19 percent, and the number of shooting victims was up 14 percent. Overall crime - including robberies, burglaries, and thefts - was down 7 percent.
The problem with going after gangs though is the intimate links between gang members and the Democratic Party. Take Chicago, please.
At some of the meetings, the politicians arrived with campaign materials and occasionally with aides. The sessions were organized much like corporate-style job fairs. The gang representatives conducted hourlong interviews, one after the other, talking to as many as five candidates in a single evening. Like supplicants, the politicians came into the room alone and sat before the gang representatives, who sat behind a long table.
"Graft and corruption is never a good thing, but it is particularly troubling when it impacts our schools, our kids," Fardon said. "Public servants and city vendors who conspire to violate the public trust in order to line their own pockets will be held accountable. Today's indictment reflects that accountability."
Byrd-Bennett had worked as a consultant for SUPES and Synesi before she was picked in 2012 by Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel to serve as the chief executive officer of the nation’s third largest city’s public school system. She previously had run the Cleveland and Detroit public school systems.
