Criminologists give many explanations for the rise in the murder rate in some cities in the last month, according to a recent Wall Street Journal article. In April 2008, 18 people were murdered in Washington during the 13-day violent struggle.
In other cities, including Chicago and Philadelphia, there were similar murders during the same period. This causes criminologists to wonder if this is a tentative tense of new tendencies. Crime people tell us they do not see easy explanations as usual habits like poverty, gangs, weapons, and economics.
Statements of murder rates have been declining for years, but they have grown in the black community – only 13 percent of the country's population. In the US, however, more Afro-American men die than any other racial group and account for 49% of all murders, the FBI says.
A Cincinnati county medical examiner has analyzed all the available data on the latest murder victims in the region and believes that the main reason is education – or lack thereof. This Hamilton county medical examiner studied the death certificates of his victims and found out that 60 percent of them had left school in five years.
A number of organizations are trying to do something about the negative aspects of communities, including the Brooklyn Children's Children, who believe that improving the quality of life involves cessation of the cyclical effects of poverty, so families are hoping. In this community alone, there is a 48 percent drop-out rate in high school. 30,000 children, or 15,000 people, are leaving. Three families are below a poverty level. The culture of narcotics and the gang, 1000 deaths a year. Young people are now subjected to violent acts and drugs.
They believe that the only solution to solving the problem is the education of children and their families. For more than two and a half decades, this group of volunteers distinguishes between programs such as the "Create Success" program, a nearly 50 percent cut rate and a positive change.
Almost half of the children involved in the education program believe they have helped them stay out of drugs, maintain trust and hope for a better future.
