In 61% white/28% black Nashville, Blacks Committed 71% of Cleared Homicide Cases in 2016

We call this story a perfect example of burying the lede. Can you find it? 

But first, it's important to note Nashville is 61 percent white and 28 percent black (since it is insufficiently non-white, the city has been targeted for cultural enrichment via massive refugee resettlement). 

Okay, ready? [Nashville criminal homicides most in more than a decade, The Tennessean, January 4, 2017]:


Criminal homicides in Nashville rose to 84 in 2016, marking the highest number of killings in the city since 97 people died in 2005.
Nashville: 61 percent white and 28 percent black. In 2016, 71 percent of known homicide suspects were black
At the same time, the year saw a 40 percent drop in youth killings over 2015, when 20 of the city's youths were slain — a total that prompted Mayor Megan Barry to launch an initiative aimed at curbing violence among the city's young people.
"It's just sad that so many people got killed for senseless crimes last year," said Joyce Seay, whose 24-year-old son, Deon Brown, was found stabbed to death in mid-November on the property of a West Nashville trucking business. "It's very (disheartening) we've jumped to that high of a rate in such a small period."
Police charged 26-year-old William Gadsden with criminal homicide in the case after they say he fatally wounded Brown before driving Brown’s 2009 Pontiac G6 to Hickory, N.C. Gadsden was later apprehended by U.S. Marshals in New York City and extradited to Tennessee.
"I'm just glad they got him and thankful to the detective who worked the case," said Seay, whose son's case is one of 41 cases from 2016 that police have cleared.
Of those slain last year, 73 were male. All but 33 were African-American. The youngest gunshot victim was a 14-year-old boy.
Of the 84 criminal homicides in 2016, 12 of the victims were teenagers or younger. Two of them were infants who died as the result of abuse.
The prior year marked the highest number of youth deaths to hit Nashville in the past decade. Much of the city's violence that year played out among youths as acts of brutal retaliation for squabbles that police said were once settled by punches instead of bullets.
"Over the last year, Nashville has seen a dramatic decrease in youth homicide victims, and Metro police have worked hard to keep crime in check in 2016, resulting in a slight reduction in the crime rate overall even as our population continues to grow," said Barry, who during the first portion of the year created an action plan to reduce youth violence. 
The mayor's plan sought to identify challenges and needs, outline goals and objectives, recommend best practices and identify the city's shortcomings.
Police investigations also have taken more than 2,000 firearms off the streets in each of the past two years, Barry said.
"Unfortunately, Nashville was not immune," Metro Police Chief Steve Anderson said. "I am heartened that the number of juvenile homicide victims decreased significantly this year. Our city’s Youth Violence Reduction Initiative, led by Mayor Barry, and the accompanying follow-up work did, I believe, have a very positive impact."
At the same time, Anderson said he is concerned about "the seemingly nonchalant use of firearms against victims, many of whom we believe are in some way acquainted with the shooters."

More than 80 percent of 2016’s homicide victims were killed with firearms, records show.
"We, as a city, should also be cognizant of the significant disparate impact of homicide on African-American families," Anderson said.
Of those arrested in homicides last year, 71 percent are black.
The chief added, "Strategies related to the 2016 Youth Violence Reduction must continue into the future, with required broad reinforcement of the message from parents, extended families, neighbors, churches, schools and community leaders to all of Nashville."
Nashville criminal homicides by year:
  • 2016: 84
  • 2015: 79
  • 2014: 41
  • 2013: 40
  • 2012: 62
  • 2011: 51
  • 2010: 60
  • 2009: 80
  • 2008: 74
  • 2007: 73
  • 2006: 81
  • 2005: 97
By the numbers
Males: 73
Females: 11
Victims younger than the age of 19: 12 
Black: 51
White: 23
Hispanic: 8
Asian: 1
Other: 1
Cases cleared: 41 
Open cases: 43 


Did you find it?

Here it is highlighted for you: "Of those arrested in homicides last year, 71 percent are black."

Nashville is 61 percent white and 28 percent black and more than half of 2016 homicides are still not cleared, meaning blacks represent suspects in 29 of the 41 cases cleared.

If blacks are found in suspects of the remaining open cases (which is highly likely), then blacks, representing only 28 percent of the Nashville population, could be responsible for 85 percent of the homicides in 2016.

Any sane social policy/criminal reduction strategy would be to understand this data (what has been dubbed as a form of thought crime known as pattern recognition) and use it to actual make Nashville a safer city.

Right?

Here is a 76-year-old negro that killed its manager at a CVS store. Let's back up. This is a 76-year-old negro that killed a man. I'll repeat. The negro is 76-years-old. They kill from about the age of 8-years-old to 76-years-old. Maybe there are negro killers older than 76-years-old, I have not done the research. I suspect they will kill and rape until 125-years-old.

Squabbles....

Looking at the rundown of names on their hit parade of victims I'd say not many were a big loss. Typical negro alphabet soup, some Aztecs, and a hmong.

I'd say Paul's estimate of 85% of the homicide is consistent with what we observe of Africans anywhere. While homicide is dramatic and sensational, it is still relatively rare and largely avoidable if you're not engaged in TNB or criminal behavior involving black Africans. The real quality of life loss that comes from a noticeable congoid population is their propensity to commit every other type of crime at 3-10 times the rate of modern humans.

From littering, vandalism, theft and armed robbery, street shitting, even jaywalking (what is it with negroes shuffling around in the middle of the road like a possum?) having any blacks around will increase the rate of one or all types of crime. As their numbers grow into double digit percentages one approaches near certain probability of becoming a victim or at least being inconvenienced by black crime.

Add Nashville to the growing list of African no-go zones. Come out to the free zones. A good mechanic or tradesman can always find work, even the unskilled can find employment with a good attitude and the ability to show up on time. You won't make that big city salary, but you won't need it to own some land and make a home.

It is not just Nashville, but the entire middle Tennessee area that is rapidly turning into a mud-people-invested shit hole.

From Clarksville to Cookeville and every town in between, Tennessee looks like a dumping ground for illegals and mooselimbs, and you can’t throw a rock in any direction without hitting a negro. The only safe zones remaining here exist in heavily wooded areas that are at least 45 minutes away from a populated zone.

I live in middle Tennessee and I order everything that I need online. Hitching up the buggy and heading into town is no longer an option for me. I can only take so many interracial relationships, burqas, unsupervised “keeids”, and clown cars full of tiny little illegal Guatemalans, streaming out by the grocery cart full to spend my tax dollars.

I am so disenfranchised with everything today that I don’t give a fu** about this country or anyone in it. Trump isn’t going to fix it and neither will anyone else.

I’m just waiting out here on the periphery for the day that I can start fighting back without going to prison for committing the crime of critical thought.

More important, the line just above that reads;
"We, as a city, should also be cognizant of the significant disparate. impact homicide on African-American families," Anderson said.

Once the word 'disparate' is used, the next thing that happens will be to blame the white man for the black man's actions and to complain that more black men are being arrested.

Not understanding 'numbuhs' can't be blamed for this because these are liberal, leftists journalists reporting, not the ignorant blacks doing the shootings. Not understanding that if there are more blacks doing the shootings and more blacks doing the dying, NOT arresting the blacks who are guilty isn't going to help the problem.

This policy of appeasement of the blacks has already gone too far. We've lost all the major cities and many of the smaller ones now because of it. I can't personally name one city where it is completely safe to walk the streets.

This is how the rich get richer, though. Migrate blacks into an area, allow the crime rate to soar, buy up all the land for pennies on the dollar and then reinstall 'rule-of-law'. Just as they did in the south after the civil war. Blacks were put in charge of local government during this period making it unlivable for whites.

And the north after the great exodus from the south. Free blacks swarmed the country and became a burden wherever they went. Crime spiked and citizens who defended themselves from it found themselves up on charges.

In both cases, white-flight kicked in and the property values plummeted.

This is how it has always worked. Once the lands are bought by the rich bankers, the blacks are stripped of any power and discarded. Construction begins and property values begin to rise ushering in the whites again while the bankers do what bankers do best - make bank.

And the game continues.....

You know, just to underline the lack of racism by whites in stories of crime, I just read of a guy from Tennessee who stopped a robbery in a hotel with his legally owned and carried Glock. Robber was armed with a dinner fork and was attempting a robbery/assault of two other hotel guests. Good guy intercedes and shoots the robber in the left bicep, then holds him for authorities.

So here's my point. The robber was white. All the comments were the same as I've read countless times here and elsewhere;

"..little more range-time would've saved the taxpayer..."
"Kudos for getting involved..."
"...learn to shoot a little better..."

No one mentioned the man's race. No one asked the shooter's race. No one asked the potential victims' race.
No. Criminal. Victim. Shooter. Crime thwarted. Hooray!

What the left fails to realize (or, deliberately ignores) is that white people have a very low tolerance for crime. We really don't care if the perpetrator is white, black, hispanic, Indian, Muslim, or Martian. We celebrate their failures and our successes.

While descriptions may be more 'colorful' when racial lines are broken, the sentiment remains the same. We celebrate the fall of the criminal in each case.

Sadly, it doesn't happen near enough.

For example, the organization La Sombra Negra is to MS-13 as Orcas are to white sharks, and the organization Las Pepes solved the problem with Pablo Escobar that neither the Columbian or US governments could legally solve. When the percentage of white victims of black crime reaches some unknown level we will see a similar organization solve the problem in an extra-constitutional manner and then merely disappear.

Nashville will not see any meaningful reduction in black murder rates until the city starts implementing solutions that have worked for other cities like marches, vigils, midnite hoops and if there is a local body of water take the little bastards sailing.

HA HA...you are going where the left wing media does not want to go: they do not want to admit that blacks are more dangerous than whites. However, if they would show me one city of any size with a sizable white and black population that is different, I would love to see the stats! Negroes alone are move docile that negroes in a group. Once they form a gang, they are much more violent. That is my smart negroes try to get out from amongst other negroes. The UK already knows the negro problem, and many others that are importing problems like Sweden are watching their crime rates go up many times because they just HAVE to be PC.

The old timers there were well aware of what caused the problems in Memphis and refused to allow any more of it into their city. The SJW's who have reformulated Nashville constantly tsk-tsk White Memphians for being racists, but it now looks like the lefty mindset newcomers have brought with them is making the city more amenable to the free-floating violence we've been experiencing for decades. Leftist naivete makes for soft targets.

Ms. Seay, do you ever wonder how being a "teen" who's last name is different from his mother's correlates to getting killed? I'll bet you a 40 oz. that it is statistically significant.

Nashville Blacks

Nashville blacks, stink like sewer water
Nashville blacks, guzzling purple drank
Nashville blacks, killing their own fathers
Nashville blacks, fall asleep robbing banks

There's thirteen hundred and fifty two
Dope slingers in Nashville
And they throw lots of lead
And stick whitey with the bill
There's thirteen hundred and fifty two
Drug corners in Nashville
And any one that's hustling has
Killed more folks than I ever will

When I was just thirteen, you might say
I was a knee-high race realist
But it seems the older I get,
The more I'm getting pissed
The death penalty needs to stringently
Enforced now in Nashville
And since none of the liberals are willing
To string them up, call me and I will

Because . . .
Nashville blacks, stink like sewer water
Nashville blacks, guzzling purple drank
Nashville blacks, killing their own fathers
Nashville blacks, fall asleep robbing banks

There's sixteen thousand eight hundred 'n' twenty one gangbangers in Nashville
All their friends are dying young because
None of the politicians have the will
It's pre-ordained for any black mothers son
Kill or be killed down in Nashville
I'm glad I got a chance to say a word about
The crime and the violence in Nashville

Because . . .
Nashville blacks, stink like sewer water
Nashville blacks, guzzling purple drank
Nashville blacks, killing their own fathers
Nashville blacks, fall asleep robbing banks

Many people talk about sending blacks to Africa if they commit a felony or 2, etc, and while I'm all for it, I will gladly support that Whites or any other person of any race also be sent to Africa if the do the same thing. There's a bonus to doing that as well; it can't be called rayciss...well until it inevitablely turns out that 90% of the criminals sent out are blacks, then it once again becomes the "disparate impact" nonsense etc...

P.S. Thanks to CENTURION for the tip about using our pseudonyms. I hope you are doing well good man.

There is no breakdown of how many murders were by whites, ]
and no breakdown of the number by Hispanics.
Being the Hispanic rate per capita is close to 10 times that of whites,
my assumption is that the number of murders by whites was miniscule.

And leave it to the Marxist msm to alter Nashvilles country music history as well, after watching a Netflix documentary on all the country greats such as Cash and Hank Sr. They would like us to believe, that these artists were purely inspired by black musicians, and went against the grain of traditional country music, which is a load of garbage. I'm surprised they also didn't take credit for Johnny Cash's all black attire too, cause you know they're 'Kangs n Queen's' back when dey built dem Pyramids n shit. Almost every white endeavour and accomplishment, is being blackwashed by the (((media))).

I just noticed that Time magazine is doing its part in whitewashing the Detroit riots of 1967:

What We Still Get Wrong About What Happened in Detroit in 1967

"The ensuing melee — which is most commonly called a riot though some argue would be better described as a rebellion"

"So what had gone wrong? The magazine's answer back then was that the riot was "the most sensational expression of an ugly mood of nihilism and anarchy that has ever gripped a small but significant segment of America's Negro minority."

(so basically they got it right the first time. Cops raided their illegal debach "organization" and as a result blacks burned down huge sections of the fourth largest city in the country).

"One of those facts is something that's easier to see now than it was in 1967: The economic situation in Detroit was already set on a course toward the decline for which it is more recently famous. Locke says that it took him years to come to that conclusion. For a long time, he had thought that the subsequent decline of the once-vibrant city was a "direct result" of the riot, but he now believes that, if anything, it was the other way around."

(there you have it, in economic downturns people of all colors can be expected to riot and burn down major cities).

Liberals are now whitewashing black violence and reframing it as a righteous "rebellion".

While whites were having the Summer of Love, blacks were busy rioting and looting whatever they could get their hands on. Nothing ever changes with these people.

As heartwarming as Kessler's speech was, it was equally disgusting to hear the white council woman try to turn his "Your days are numbered" (presumably as an official) into a threat.
Also disgusting were the chants by the blacks in the crowd of "No he's not!"

Actually, the Hispanic murder rate is 3-4 times that of Whites but 3-4 times lower than Blacks so they're in the middle. A lot of Hispanic murders are drug or gang related. While members of every race commit violent street crime, Blacks do so at rates far higher than Whites, Asians or Hispanics.

"No matter what country you are in, if there is only one glass of water and everybody is thirsty, the person who gets the water is the one who gets to it first — or kills someone to get there. And we're seeing that."

Always speaking metaphorically to make a point. Kind of seems like a weak argument. I suppose if my neighbor grabbed the last cup of water I would do what any sensible person would do, dig a well. I don't really think it would be productive to kill the guy with the last cup of water. Nor is it very productive to dig a well for these idiots , considering cucks and sjw's have been digging wells in Africa for years . It seems after a few months of neglect the wells stop pumping and the killing starts again.

Thanks to the poster who linked the NAACP boycotting Missouri, I live here in fly over country. No one around here will really miss them. The article had plenty of comments from bearded hipster douche bags, one in particular said something on the lines of all progressives should also boycott Missouri. That one made me laugh. Yes, please do asshole.

Those of you looking for an escape from the cities, aka the "war zone" come on out. Plenty of decent paying jobs here in the country, plenty affordable housing and plenty of open country side, bbq, fishing, car shows, county fairs, schools with NO metal detectors and everyone waves at you when you drive down the street. You get the idea. It's not quite Mayberry but close as you're gonna get. We had a tweaker or two that tried to steal copper from the AC units at one of the small factories outside of town, other than that all is well. Seriously folks, that's it, that is the biggest crime that comes to mind in the last decade around here.

A lot of Americana to go around. The cities are lost, small town America is not.
