#1 My search continues for the common denominator of crime ridden cities such as Detroit, Oakland, Chicago, Atlanta, Abuja, Salisbury Harare, Durban, and Johannesburg. I am on the cusp of ruling out frustrated Welsh coal miners and the oppressive Reinheitsgebot of 1516 (Bavarian beer purity order). My search continues. Any assistance you may proffer will be held in the strictest of confidence.

#2 Raise the tax on bullets! That should go hand in hand with very tough gun control. All those "bad mens" won't afford to kill. I'm so smart.

#3 Besoeker, cities with large concentrations of the poor have been dangerous for millenia. Read Dickens on 19th century London, or the history of New Orleans, which first hosted the Mafia in the US.
