All Crimes in Washington, DC
At the peak of the violent crime swing in Washington, DC, 83% of the students who participated in NAEP were black:
<<<At the peak of the violent crime wave in the early 1990s, Washington, D.C., was known as the "murder capital" of the United States. The number of homicides peaked in 1991, with 482 murders. As the population of the city was just over 600,000 at that time, this meant that the District's homicide rate was 80.6 per 100,000 inhabitants. By contrast, when New York City, with 7.3 million people at the time, hit its highest homicide count and rate with 2,245 murders in 1990, this meant a murder rate of "only" 30.66 per 100,000.>>>
If a city (no, country) like Washington DC, with more Blacks and politicians per square inch than any plot of land on the face of the planet, who re-elected known drug user Marion Berry as mayor, who really can't be expected to be too religious about facts and statistics, will ADMIT to a homicide rate of 80.6, then the actual homicide rate could be 50% higher and perhaps twice as high, putting it in the range of 121 to 162. These are the folks who control the numbers, so it's extremely easy for them to cook any of their own statistics which put them in a bad light, up to and including the complete removal of the column "homicide" from the table "Death Rates, by Leading Causes--States" in the 1993 and 1994 editions of the Statistical Abstract of the United States which would have contained the above figure, or one even worse.
They did manage to restore this column by the time the 1996 edition was published, at which time the homicide rate in DC was down to "only" 72.4--a rate still 42 TIMES higher than Maine at 1.7, and 362 TIMES higher than Singapore at 0.2.
What exactly did we get in return on this HUGE investment?

Residents in Washington, DC are 15% more likely to be raped, 52% more likely to be robbed, twice as likely to be assaulted, 20% more likely to be burglarized, 6% more likely to be victims of larceny 5063, and 50% more likely to have their car stolen.
Mozambique participated in IAEP and got 28.3% correct, compared to 80.2% in China, 55.3% in the US, and 73.4% in Korea. The recent breakdown of scores by race in the US by TIMSS suggests the following to be the racial component of our score of 55.3:
"The grand total of DC public school funding for 2007-08 is thus $1.216 billion. Divide that by the OSSE�s official enrollment figure of 49,422 students, and you arrive at an estimated total per pupil spending figure of $24,606."
This compares to $5,100 per student in Iowa and North Dakota, and $3,000 per student in Korea and Singapore.
So the MOST pampered student on the universe, the Black student in DC who already costs $24,606 per year to educate, almost FIVE TIMES more than a student in Iowa or Korea, STILL scores 11 NAEP math points lower (at 231) than the AVERAGE American black student, 24 points lower than Blacks in Iowa who cost only $4,500 per year, 70 points lower than a nonpublic school student in Texas who costs only $4,000, and 72 points lower than the AVERAGE White student in the SAME schools in DC (at 303).
What does Mozambique do right that DC does wrong?
How exactly do American Blacks benefit from this? How do WE benefit from this?

In ACT Math, Blacks in DC score 16.4, which is 0.7 points lower than the national average for blacks of 17.1, 10.2 points lower than Whites in DC (26.6), and 5.6 points lower than Asian/Pacific Islanders in DC.
In ACT English, they score 15.0, which is 0.7 points lower than the national average for Blacks, 13.1 points lower than Whites in DC(28.1), and 10.3 points lower than Asian/Pacific Islanders in DC.
In ACT Reading, they score 16.1, which is again 0.7 points lower than the national average for Blacks, 12 points lower than Whites in DC, and
8.7 points lower than Asian/Pacific Islanders in DC.
In ACT Science, they score 15.9, which is 9.7 points lower than Whites in DC, and 7.1 points lower than the national average for Asian/Pacific Islanders.
Is there ANYBODY who could POSSIBLY score lower than that? Well, of course. Table 4.1 shows that teacher education majors in DC score only 14.9, another .2 points lower.
If the murder rate in Washington were to climb back to its 1991 rate of 80.6 and remain there for the next four decades (which is very likely considering the long term trend), and if the population were to remain at 600,00 (which may be high considering the recent decrease in the population), there will be 19,344 murders in that one city alone. If it were to increase to the rate of New Orleans before God wiped them out, or 86, there will be 20,640 murders. Even if it were to remain flat, at the current level, there will still be 10,320 murders.
Conversely, if it were to decrease to the level of Rwanda, there will be only 3,288 murders; or Ethiopia, 1,704 murders; or Iraq, 720 murders; or China, 408 murders; or Madagascar, 336 murders; or Hong Kong, 144 murders; or Saudi Arabia, 96 murders; or North Dakota, 48 murders; or Qatar, 24 murders.
Murders per year
Murders Four Decades
In other words, simply because we've permitted blacks to move into our nation's capitol, rather than Whites from North Dakota, or Muslims from Qatar, or Asians from Singapore, we are CERTAIN that over the next four decades an EXTRA 20,000 Americans will be murdered in JUST this once city.
Our politicos quietly implemented a secret (or at least unknown to the news media) plan to reduce the population of blacks in our nation's capitol from 82.2% in 1990 to only 61.4% in 1999, the primary reason for the more than 50% reduction of the homicide rate, from 80.6 to 35.8. Relatively unbiased government agencies like NAEP confirmed that blacks were 83% of the students. This is because they knew intimately something we don't know and the news media failed to report: the most murderous population in the nation are Black male youth between the ages of 14-24.
But not even that was enough to keep our nation's capitol off the murder capitol hit list:
- DC Murder Rate Soared as Other Cities Saw Decline
(Washington, DC) Washington, DC is once again the nation's 'Murder Capital," according to a new study released today.
The study, conducted by SafeStreetsDC.com (www.SafeStreetsDC.com), a public safety watchdog group, compared the annual number of murders per 100,000 residents in American cities with populations greater than 500,000. This was the same standard used to determine DC's previous rank as murder capital. In compiling the data, the group relied on homicide statistics from the FBI and police department homicide units from around the country.
According to the numbers, DC outranked all major cities, and is again the nation's "murder capital."
Immediately following DC on the list were Detroit (the winner in 2001), Baltimore, Memphis, Chicago and Philadelphia (in that order).
Other notable rankings included: Los Angeles (9), Dallas (10), Boston (18), San Francisco (24), and New York (25). Last on the list was Honolulu, ranked 32d with only 18 murders, in spite of its population of nearly 900,000.
DC, by comparison, with nearly 600,000 residents, had 262 murders last year.
DC's soaring homicide rate also defied national trends showing a slight drop in murders. In spite of the fact that the number of total murders in all 32 cities dropped 1.2% in 2002 as compared to 2001, DC saw a nearly 13% increase in its murder rate in 2002, giving it the 6th-highest increase among the cities surveyed.
"Nationally the murder rate hardly changed, yet in DC it soared last year," said John Aravosis, cofounder of SafeStreetsDC.com and co-author of the study along with Matt Forman. "DC officials clearly can't blame the city's increasing murder rate on the worsening economy or other national trends since most other cities facing the same pressures did not see the same increase in homicides."
The largest jump in the 2002 murder rate was in Columbus, which saw a nearly 60% increase last year, immediately followed by San Jose (+27%), Tucson (+21%), Jacksonville (+20%), and Denver (+18%).
On the other end of the spectrum, El Paso had the greatest decline in its murder rate last year (-30%). The percentage change in the murder rate of other notable cities in 2002 include: Los Angeles (+12%), Detroit (+2%), Baltimore (-1%), Chicago (-3%), Philadelphia (-7%), Boston (-8%), New York (-10%), and Dallas (-20%).
The study also cast doubt on another factor often used by DC officials to explain the city's increasing crime rate: the demands of Homeland Security.
"We were surprised to find that New York had a 10% drop in homicides last year, as DC officials often blame the District's increasing crime rate on the demands of post-September 11 security," Aravosis said. "Yet New York, which surely faces as great a threat as Washington, has managed to improve its murder rate."
The study also found that in 2001 DC was the murder capital "runner up."
This year, according to the DC Metropolitan Police Department, murder in the District is up over 21% from last year, and at the current pace, Washington could see 325 murders in 2003 as compared to last year's 262. (Source: Washington Post)
"We were the murder capital runner-up in 2001, we won the title in 2002, and 2003 is already being heralded as a record year for death in the District," said Aravosis. "All of this proves that this year's 21% jump in homicides is hardly a temporary fluke. It's been building for years."
SafeStreetsDC.com is a web-based ad hoc coalition of District of Columbia citizens and police officers working to improve public safety and hometown security. SafeStreetsDC.com founder, John Aravosis, is a nationally-known Internet activist best known for his year 2000 StopDrLaura.com web campaign. The campaign brought citizen pressure to bear in convincing corporate sponsors to withdraw from Dr. Laura Schlessinger's television talk show ultimately leading to the cancellation of the show.

DC is Again the Murder Capital
Washington, DC had the highest number of homicides per capita in 2002 of cities with populations of 500,000 or more, making the District again the nation's "murder capital." (This was the same standard used to determine DC's "murder capital" status in the late 1980s.) In 2001, DC was the "murder capital runner-up," following Detroit which held the title that year. In 2002, however, DC's nearly 13% increase in homicides over the previous year exceeded Detroit's more modest increase of less than 2%. As a result, Detroit and DC switched places in the rankings for 2002, with DC taking the lead.
The Importance of Calculating the "Murder Rate"
A word about the "murder rate" and per-capita calculations. While Los Angeles had the most murders in 2002 of any large city, Washington, DC gets the rank of "murder capital" because the risk of being murdered in the District is higher than in Los Angeles. This is because while Los Angeles has 6.5 times the population of the District, last year LA did not have 6.5 times the number of murders in DC - rather, LA had only 2.5 times the number of murders in DC. Thus, in terms of each citizen's risk of being murdered, DC is more dangerous than LA and thus gets a higher rank.(1)
Top Ten Murder Rates in 2002
The following chart shows the ranking for the top ten cities in murders per capita for 2002:Gallant1965: 45.8 per 100,000 people Gallant1965: http://www.safestreetsdc.com/subpages/murdercap.html
With an official population of 603,000, using the above proportions, the population groups should be as follows:
Whites = 24,120
blacks = 500,490
Hispanics = 60,300
Asians = 12,060
With blacks broken down by age groups and sex:
Males 14-17 = 17,517
Males 18-24 = 27,527
Males > 24 = 205,201
Females 14-17 = 17,517
Females 15-24 = 27,527
Females > 24 = 205,201
A) Males 14-17: 17,517 x 250 homicides per 100,000 population = 44
B) Males 18-24: 27,527 x 380 homicides per 100,000 population = 105
C) Males > 24: 205,201 x 80 homicides per 100,000 population = 164
D) Females 14-17: 17,517 x 12 homicides per 100,000 population = 2
E) Females 18-24: 27,527 x 23 homicides per 100,000 population = 6
F) Females > 24: 205,201 x 10 homicides per 100,000 population = 21
TOTAL = 342
60,300 x 30 homicides per 100,000 population = 18
24,120 x 1 homicide per 100,000 population = 0
12,060 x 0.5 homicides per 100,000 population = 0
360 CLEARED homicides, plus 180 uncleared homicides = 540 homicides
= homicide rate per 100,000 population of 89
