Good Editorial in the Post Dispatch on the Relationship Between Crime and Vacancies in City

This editorial has correctly pointed out something I have been saying for years, that crime is the biggest cause of population loss in the city. The black population of St. Louis County has increased from about 5% in 1975 to 23% now. Almost all those black residents have come from the city and are working, sending their kids to school etc. Many political leaders in St. Louis dance around this issue. Written by Paul Dribin
