When it's not a black on white crime or vice versa it seems to not get coverage. I know that area well and it's an overpass over a walking and bike riding trail that goes all around pinellas county..... the police patrol it on horses and they are talking bout starting a cc cameras on the trail.

Or the media couldn't find a way to spin it into something that would further divide the country.

Notice how when it is a white on black crime there are more paragraphs than just part or 2. This is sad when violence that is not sensational and wont cause an uproar is swept under the rug because "Well this story just wont get the rating we are after and our own political machine cannot process white on white crime at this time"

It is way lower than black on white or black on black. Ebola may cure it.

Crime reports are different for each area. Here in Gainesville a football player can get away with rape if he is good and most crime is not made public.Who would send their kids to a school with high crime? I think all schools have high crime it is just under reported.
