    "Smart, rich people tend to commit less crime. THAT is the common denominator for crime...not all this dancing around that streetglide is doing trying to insinuate that skin color has something to do with crime propensity."

    But at least the bum managed to do it without blaming Obama! LOL

    Lack of Education + Poverty = Crime

    Smart, rich people tend to commit less crime. THAT is the common denominator for crime...not all this dancing around that streetglide is doing trying to insinuate that skin color has something to do with crime propensity.

    Keep up the education. Help poor people succeed. THAT will reduce crime. Dramatically.

    I live in Durham and I honestly don't know anyone who's committed a violent crime.

    its seems all peopel who obey the laws in Durham know who the people are that are committing most of all violent crimes, but yet our media can't say it,, we can't say it,, just so everyone can be politically correct. Our nation has become a place where it is easier to not tell the truth, than it is to tell the truth and just be honest. The truth can be seen as profiling "so what" and not single out the under privilage, "give me a break", everyone has the same chances,, some just have to work harder than others, which should make them better.
    Maybe Slow Glow the Buffet Slayer will tell us the truth! would that not be something. the truth from him, would be like the truth from our goverment,, will never happen!!

    I know...With Raleigh hitting the headlines so much lately Durham has been running behind. Of course crime free Cary has leaked its crime lately too.
    Hope the person will be okay and they find and charge the person who did it. DPD has been doing that well lately..

    I have to agree with Bartmeister... there must be a mistake here. Perhaps a simple misprint. Durham is the city of medicine, a city on the move, a city of diversity with a vision for the 21st century.
