Responses to your points about me.
  • Never said they were all Black. In fact I haven't mentioned it at all. See below. Your name comes up more than anyone else.
  • Nope. Not once have I said that Charlotte murder = black thug.
  • Agreed that murder is bad. Doesn't matter who did it.
In regards to mentioning race. This search proves who is focused on that. i.e. Those who live in glass houses should take care before throwing stones.

Indeed they do. That search proves it.

"Search This Topic" -> "current feltdesigner accusation" -> Race Hucksters in topic exposed.

The topic is about murders in Charlotte.

Accusations of racism, where it doesn't exist nor proved are just distractions to avoid the topic. Sad really. I believe that someone asked why issues doesn't get solved. This is why. Too many walking around with huge chips on shoulders.

Since people keep getting scolded that "the topic" is about murders, why not look at murder rate trends? (according to charmeck.org)

2015 YTD - 45
2014 - 42
2013 - 58
2012 - 52
2011 - 55

So we knew from this thread that 2015 already has more than 2014. But when looking at the years before 2014 it really just seems like 2014 may have been an anomaly (although I'm sure there were people saying last year that "we solved the murder problem!")

So really from 2011-2013 there were between 52-58 murders. That's between 4-5 a month on average. So if that trend holds true 2015 would end up between 57-60, which is pretty similar to what happened from 2011-2013 (and as mentioned earlier this is not taking into account population increases).

As a result, while no amount of murders is good, I wouldn't say the murder rate in Charlotte is really getting worse unless we end up over 60 or so. So we'll see.

why would I need to search for myself?

It sounds like you believe you are solving issues by posting news links on CD. You arent a crime stopper or Batman, you are just a guy who likes to post doom and gloom about Charlotte.
