Remember, this is St. Louis.....I'm sure if you checked other major cities with high percentages of BLACKS, you would find similar results

Black-crime explosion: 'America's worst city' revealed Nearby Ferguson, Knockout Game, 'no snitchin' mentality   Published: 11/24/2014

Before Ferguson exploded in reaction to the August shooting of black teen Michael Brown by police officer Darren Wilson, the St. Louis police chief raised eyebrows when he called for the use of drones to monitor high-crime areas.
The proposal was a response to  what St. Louis police authorities called subhuman, antisocial, urban terrorist” behavior by criminals.
St. Louis also is home of the notorious “Knockout Game,” a random but racially motivated assault that has claimed at least six lives.
St. Louis is 44 percent white and 49 percent black, but statistics shows a racial imbalance in crime. Based on the city’s official crime data for 2012 — the most recent year which data are available — 97.6 percent of those arrested for murder were black and 2.4 percent were white. More than 82 percent of those arrested for serious crimes like murder, aggravated assault and larceny were black, while just 17.5 percent arrested were white.
Black males in St. Louis were responsible for the vast majority (63.5 percent) of crimes committed. Other groups contribute significantly less to the serious crimes in St. Louis. White males made up 17 percent of arrests, black females were 14 percent of arrests and white females only 5.3 percent of arrests.
