Who is Committing Crime in Charlotte?

Sep 12, 2007

WFAE continues reporting on crime in the city with a look at who's committing the crime. Numbers from the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department show four out of every five people it arrested from 2004 to 2006 were African American. According to the most recent census, about 30% of the county's population is black. WFAE's Scott Graf reports on what experts say are some of the causes for the disparity and what they think can be done to turn it around.
