06/21/07 noon Cities With a Lot of Murders

One city had more homicides per capita than Baltimore last year, Detroit.  Newark wasn't far behind, barely beaten out for third by New Orleans.  This hour we talk with journalists from Detroit, Newark, and here in B-more who have been covering crime in their towns. Violence is nothing new in any of these places.  How did it become such an entrenched part of their cultures?  How is each place dealing with the problem?  What can we learn from each other? -Justin
