We've only had 109 murders in Memphis so far this year. We were over 100 back in June. I thought the professors at MSU were chaining crime to higher temperatures, you'd think there would have been more murders. I mean it's been nasty hot and we've only had a few more murders.
Of course there was a little shooting spree last night at the Tulane Apts. and surrounding area, but that's no big deal (8 people shot). We were doing a little light Fugitive operation down there last year and the gangstahs shot at us as they ran away. Hmm, I had forgotten about that.
I think we have needed to get serious with these gangstahs for a long time, but I was told I'm too aggressive. Well, look who's aggressive now. Someone else is going to die if law enforcement doesn't step up and do the job. Of course, these shootings aren't happening in Germantown, Bartlett, Collierville, Arlington or other municipalities. It's happening in Memphis - Crime capital of the South.
The DA's Office is saying some of the apartments are to blame for crime in the area, but guess what - the whole county is a crime scene. Failure to aggressively pursue criminals, give them the maximum punishment and hold them in jail is the reason we have such a high crime rate.
