06/21/07 noon Cities With a Lot of Murders


One city had more homicides per capita than Baltimore last year, Detroit.  Newark wasn’t far behind, barely beaten out for third by New Orleans.  This hour we talk with journalists from Detroit, Newark, and here in B-more who have been covering crime in their towns.

Violence is nothing new in any of these places.  How did it become such an entrenched part of their cultures?  How is each place dealing with the problem?  What can we learn from each other?

  1. Hi Justin,

    I’m a producer for WRNO, the new995fm.com in New Orleans, a new talk radio station focussed on New Orleans recovery. I’d love to read the comments from your show yesterday. Are they it posted somewhere?

    Also, can you help me get in touch with the journalists from Newark, Detroit, and Baltimore whom you spoke with so I can ask them to come on-air?

    Thanks much!
