Black crime encroaches on Indy's white suburbs -

Nearly all of the high crime cities, whether large or mid-sized, in the USA have two things in common: a Democrat administration for most of the last 50 years and a majority black population.  Historically Democrats administrations have been soft on crime and less concerned with public safety and Republican administrations have been the polar opposite. Republican administrations mostly occur in communities with a majority white population. Would a Republican administration in a high black population city be able to suppress crime and make the city a safe place to live for all? In New York city this was true. In Indianapolis it appears they are currently being overwhelmed. Keep in mind that the overall national political climate in America has changed considerably.

Once known as a safe place for white people, the far-north side of Indianapolis is being introduced to an increase in violent black crime.

That was made apparent again this week when a 26-year-old Terrance Harris was arrested after allegedly shooting a gas station clerk in the face during a robbery near the city's Castleton area.

The crime occurred at East 71st Street and North Keystone Avenue.

The Castleton Mall has been the scene of teen mob violence in recent months.

Fishers, Indiana -- as suburban city northeast of Castleton -- was cited as the safest city in the nation in 2011.

Indianapolis Mayor Greg Ballard has been intent on developing a mass transit system to connect the most crime-ridden areas of the city to the safe-place suburbs, effectively giving violent criminals easier access to Whitopia.

Black crime in Indianapolis refutes the popular notion that heightened violent crime in urban areas is due to liberal Democratic politicians. Indianapolis has been  primarily governed by Republicans for decades.

A man working at a Speedway gas station at the intersection of East 71st Street and North Keystone Avenue was shot around 1:15 a.m. Tuesday.

Seven hours later, police arrested 26-year-old Terrance Harris on a preliminary charge of attempted murder and robbery.

A family member watched the news and called to turn in the suspect. Harris was arrested at the Colonial Square Apartments in the 5700 block of Renn Lane.

Only Eyewitness News was there as officers cautiously ordered Harris out. On the second attempt, he slowly came out with his hands up at which point officers then handcuffed him and took him in for questioning.

"I don't understand why," Harris' emotional mother told Eyewitness News Reporter Matt McCutcheon. "I just had a whole new grandbaby yesterday and I don't understand why he would do something like this. It is so heartbreaking."

Police say the suspect entered the store and began a conversation about nachos with the employee. The employee told police the suspect was incoherent and acting strangely and that the suspect then left the gas station and later returned with a gun.

The employee was shot in the face and the stomach. He was taken to St. Vincent Hospital in Indianapolis in critical, but stable condition, according to IMPD. His condition later changed to serious.

"I don't know what happened or what went wrong," the suspect's mother said.
