105 Less People in Columbus in 2010

The Columbus Dispatch reported 105 murders in Columbus in all of 2010. My third blog on this topic finds me continually alarmed by this huge number.

I don't know what to make of this quote from the article:
"If you look back, the 20-year average is actually 100 murders," said Deanna Wilkinson, an Ohio State University associate professor of human development and family science who studies youth violence.

Is she saying an average murder volume year somehow is ok?

It's not.

Those of us who frequently visit the City are begging. Will someone do something about it? Please!
