I don't think conservatives are stronger on crime. They merely focus on pushing the criminal, while liberals focus on preventing victims in the first place. And, you're not offering facts; you're making assumptions that are based on a lack of knowledge.

Demographics play a big role, too. Fifty-four percent of murders are committed by blacks. Overwhelmingly that's young males killing other young males.
Kids need to grow up with good schools, safe neighborhoods, health care, and responsible parents. Certainly growing up in a two parent household is better for a child than growing up in a one parent household, but often people who grow up in troubled households had parents who grew up in troubled households. Poverty is a leading cause of most of our social ills, but the kinds of race-based arguments you push also do harm. Marginalizing people tends to make people angry, whether its among some blacks, some Catholics and Protestants in Ireland, some Muslims in France, some Basques in Spain, etc.
Why am I "Fuzzy Navel"? I don't get that. Also I have no emotions I can go on and on for 10000 characters and hear from the fringe right they can't read more than 5 lines, so now I am using the superior large font method. Did you miss the part where I told you you were wrong? What part of "end of conversation" don't you understand?????
Patters had a chart. Now you have to argue with him.
Good job, Dithers. There is indeed that epidemic of gang members hailing from intact, two-parent families. In 1965 7 percent of children were born to broken families. Now 72 percent of black babies are. Nice job, liberalism.
Crime causes poverty, not the other way 'round. It was a shibboleth to say so decades ago. But that hobby horse has long been beaten down by reality.
The left hasn't had a new idea in forty years, except for Global Warming. (Too bad the earth is cooling rapidly.)
Businesses are driven from crime-ridden neighborhoods, taking jobs and opportunities with them. Potential investors and would-be employers are scared away. Existing owners are deterred from making improvements on their property, and as property values go down, owners disinvest in their property. I know a small contractor who tried to rehabilitate inner-city housing for low-income tenants. He had to give up because drug addicts would break in, rip out his improvements, and sell them for drug money. They would even come in regularly and take out all of the piping in the building and sell it for scrap. This contractor obviously couldn't continue like that, and like many others has just stopped his efforts to rehabilitate housing.
So, in 2009, we have people on here arguing that certain people are more pre-disposed to criminality due to race?
Wow, just wow.
Just don't complain when most people don't generally take you guys seriously.
Constructive political debate and dissent is part of the bedrock of this nation.
This stuff , well...
