My cmnt: It is becoming hard for me to understand why democrat-run cities are allowed to continue to be home to violence and murder. Yet it is nothing new. Perhaps it is just the inevitable result of creating hopeless welfare states of uneducated boys and men with no futures. Or it will go on as long as democrats need 90% of their vote to keep getting re-elected. People dependent upon the taxpayer for their jobs and livelihoods tend to vote democratic so the gravy just keeps flowing.
