HOMICIDE RATE FOR AFRICAN AMERICANS IN WISCONSIN ALMOST FIVE TIMES NATIONAL RATE
wpr.org ^ | 31 January, 2012 | Gilman Halsted

(STATEWIDE) The homicide rate for African Americans in Wisconsin is almost five times the national rate. A new report using FBI statistics ranks Wisconsin in the top ten for the percentage of black murder victims.

The figures are from 2009. Of the 146 murders in the state that year 79 of the victims were black and most of them 66 were young black men. Most 60 percent knew their killer. Josh Sugarman heads the Washington, D.C. based Violence Policy Center that produced the report crunched the numbers and produced the ranking. He says gun control laws are the key to reducing the number of young black man being shot, "The state with the lowest gun death rates over all have far more comprehensive gun control laws, lower rates of gun ownership compared to states that have more lax or non-existent gun control laws and higher rates of gun ownership."

But Madison Police Chief Noble Wray says limiting access to guns is only part of the solution. He says young black men have become disillusioned with the criminal justice system and too many are involved in a violent subculture where guns are seen as the ultimate equalizer, "In the subculture is that opposed to getting into a confrontation and harming you I want to do the ultimate and we've got to move away from that and that is something that has to be addressed in a personal responsibility with African American males because they are killing each other."

Wray says his department is trying to do that through gang intervention techniques. He says the only good news is that the homicide rate is lower than it could be, thanks to advances in emergency health care technology that now saves many gunshot victims who would have died in the past.

Interesting, in that demographicly, I would bet that the black population in Wisconsin has the lowest level of firearm ownership.

Note that over half the murders in Wiscons are committed by and of black men (I would bet nearly all urban black men).

Take that violent urban subculture out, and Wisconsin has a typical european murder rate of about 1.5 per 100,000.

Now back to our regular line of ideology, which is that all cultures are equal and single motherhood is just peachy.

Thanks for the post. I had no idea George Bush even had a home in Wisconsin. What about Dick Cheney?

Sadly, so called "black culture" in America is a manufactured falsehood intended to drive a wedge between Americans. More a product of the civil rights era than anything.

Nation-wide, black men commit 51.6% of all homicides where the race of the offender is known, per the FBI. Since a large percentage of homicides where the offender's race is unknown are gang-related killings where no witnesses are willing to come forward, I would guess the real percentage is higher.

This has always perplexed me a bit. If you interviewed those who commit the crimes they would say everything but mea culpa, and by proxy blame the white establishment.

Yet it is other blacks they take their murderous hatred out on.

He says gun control laws are the key to reducing the number of young black man being shot,
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

The “key” is to adopt the values of middle and upper middle class whites ( See Charles Murray).

** finish high school and go on to get an education or training that will earn a living
** get a job, go every day, be on time, and give a full-day’s effort
** get married before having children.
** stay married
** don't go to prison

Blacks wonder why blacks are so disproportionately locked up in prison.

I guess they cannot read. Every black man convicted of murder and put in prison is another black man who will not kill another black man in their community.

Thy should be thankful instead of complaining.Of course it’s also another Grandson who cannot bring the money from drug sales home to Grandma or Momma, so maybe that gives them reason to complain.

Simple answer, they are in jail because they are guilty.

The Northside of Milwaukee is a free fire zone. The area is 99% Black. There have been 4 or 5 murders within 400 yards of where I was brought up in a fine middle class neighborhood.

What is the employment rate of the black people? Wisconsin I thought would be fairly decent place for black people to live. I wonder how many were self defense? AZ has lax gun laws and the blacks here are not killing each other.

They don’t point out that typically 90 percent of crime against blacks is by other blacks.

Unemployment has little to do with it. Race has little to do with it. The link is culture. Culture tends to be conserved. There are black cultures that have low crime rates. If you look at Jamaican blacks in the United States, they have a much lower crime rate. Rural blacks have a much lower crime rate. Most murders are committed by and of a very small urban black criminal culture.

You are exactly correct. Interesting how those values just happen to coincide with Christen values.

If you’re an unmarried pregnant teenage girl in the West Indies, your father will spank you after you give birth.
If you’re an unmarried pregnant teenage girl in the black rural south, your father will make you work in his shop to the bone to support his grandchild before he makes you find a decent man to marry.
If you’re an unmarried pregnant teenage girl in the black ghetto, your father will find out about it on facebook, congratulate you, and then talk to his other baby momma.

One of these things are not like the other....
