Guns, crack cocaine fuel homicides in San Francisco,
Highest number of killings in over a decade
The prevalence of guns and an uptick in the crack cocaine trade are fueling homicides in San Francisco, which in 2007 recorded its highest number of killings in more than a decade.
Of the 98 homicides in 2007, the biggest share took place in the city’s violence-plagued Bayview neighborhood, and more than half of all the victims killed were black men.
Doesn’t San Francisco have strict “gun control” measures?
So, what gives?
