This is the complete list of homicides that have occurred in Jackson in 2015 so far.
That puts Jackson on a trajectory to have approximately 58 homicides for this calendar year.
Of course, one is too many, but a substantial improvement from the peak numbers seen in
previous decades. Things, indeed, seem to be improving...good for Jackson!

I can't tell if you're being sarcastic, or ... What, but for anyone that doesn't know anything about Jackson, most of these homicides with the exception of two, occurred in bad areas of the city. One of the two that occurred in other areas, was a self-defense homicide. Also, most of them were domestic issues.

Sarcastic?

Sharif662 posted earlier that Jackson had 96 murders within the city in 1994-95.
The city is currently on a pace for 58...a 40% drop in 20 years. As a retired police
officer and current city dweller, I'd say that IS a "...substantial improvement..."
and suggests that things/crime "...seem to be improving..." in Jackson.

I apologize if my prior post wasn't clear. On many forums on city-data, particularly
ones involving urban areas, there tends to be a "celebration" of bad news. Some
members greatly exaggerate the risk/dangers of participating in the life a city...
whether through living there or attending the many cultural events/institutions
that can be found within said city. I've lived in Detroit, New Orleans and currently
Atlanta and found that the most egregious fear mongers have NO CLUE what life
is like in an urban environment or what the actual risks are for being a victim of
crime. Many tend to be fearful, and consciously or not, spread their fear to folks
who otherwise have no relevant experience themselves. Sorry for the confusion.

Happy Memorial Day to all!

Paul

Although I will say White people are notorious for doing cocaine & methadone, Blacks are pretty heavy on the Mary Jane, but that won't matter one day when it's legalized throughout the nation.
