    Roger, I believe if we were to break this down even further we would find that it's actually about 5% of black males that overwhelmingly commit the most crimes in the U.S. Typically between the ages of 15 to 37 !

    Probably need to look at the crime rate broken down into segments of the population. For example 52% of the population is female. What percentage of violent crimes is committed by women? Get the picture? In addition, referencing mass shootings, 92% since 2005 have taken place in "gun free" zones. I taught criminology/sociology for 31 years. I am quite familiar with the demographics of criminal behavior, violent and non-violent. You did not call me racist, which is good. I was never accused of being a bigot or a racist(there is a difference) in over 30 years in the classroom. Merry Christmas.

    Roger Chance you need to get a life. You always commenting when a black man gets shot or killed. We are in our last days and no matter the race someone is being killed or killing someone everywhere not just Durham. I am more afraid of whites than my own kind. You'll go into movie theaters killing people and Plan Parenthoods etc. At least since we killing our kind I don't have to pay taxes for both to be in prison where they will end up eventually.

    Wow! Has it been 5 whole days since one black guy killed another black guy in Durham? If a policeman killed a black law breaker at this rate Durham would be nothing but empty stores and ashes.
