Unless you've lived here or visited the neighborhoods of Homewood, the Hill District, or parts of the Northside (to name a few), you probably don't know about the level of violence in Pittsburgh. If you watched our video ib"America's Most Livable City" /b/iyou might assume that a city with the poorest Black community in the nation, also has it's far share of homicides, and you'd be right. p align="center"This year, Pennsylvania finally relinquished it's title as the a href="http://articles.philly.com/2011-01-27/news/27051616_1_homicide-victims-homicide-rate-black-homicide"state with the most Black homicides/a, now we're in second place behind Missouri. Most people credit Philly for that dubious distinction, but last year a href="http://www.pittsburghlive.com/x/pittsburghtrib/news/pittsburgh/s_738586.html"Pittsburgh saw it's number of murders increase by 41%/a. To make matters even worse, Pittsburgh Police's homicide clearance rate dropped to it's a href="http://www.post-gazette.com/pg/11003/1115202-53.stm"second lowest rate in a decade/a. Plus the city's new crime prevention program called, "Pittsburgh's Initiative to Reduce Crime"a href="http://www.post-gazette.com/pg/11166/1153743-53-0.stm" is already being labeled a failure/a.bra href="http://www.newpittsburghcourieronline.com/index.php?option=com_contentamp;view=articleamp;id=4629:violent-crime-down-in-city-black-stats-not-goodamp;catid=38:metroamp;Itemid=27"According to the New Pittsburgh Courier/a :/p p align="center"bi"The average homicide victim in 2010 was a 33?year-old Black male with four prior arrests, most likely shot on the North Side, in the Hill District or the East End with a 9mm semi-automatic pistol in the early morning hours of a Saturday in July. The average shooter was a 29-year-old Black male with four prior arrests. The motive was likely retaliation. And according to the clearance-rate data, there is a 46 percent chance that he is still at large."/i/b p align="center"This is why we decided to dedicate our latest video to the problem of violence in our community. ib"City of Steel"/b/i was filmed on Pittsburgh's Northside at, Northview Heights housing project, Allegheny County General Hospital, Zone No.1 Police Station, Union Dale Cemetery, and the newly reopened state prison, SCI Pittsburgh. bi"City of Steel"/i/bwas produced by bRel!g!on/b and directed by bParadise Gray/b. p align="center"Courtesy of a href="http://twitter.com/jasiri_x"http://twitter.com/jasiri_x/a/p
