9/3 Columnists/Reporters on Crime

Statistics show the murder rate in Baltimore could reach three hundred by the end of the year. Our metropolitan neighbor to the north, Philadelphia, has already passed that number. This fall, both cities are facing mayoral elecions where crime, specifically the rise in homicides, is one of the leading issues.

Down south, in New Orleans, has returned to its pre-Katrina homicide rate. Once again, we’ll discuss how these cities are dealing with the increase in crime, from the viewpoints of reporters and columnists in Baltimore, Philadelphia and New Orleans.
