This edition: Stray Bullets: Is Crime Really Down in NYC's Black Neighborhoods?

Episode Details

Original tape date: November 4, 2009.

On this edition of Independent Sources we examine the issue of crime in black communities. Though New York City has reported crime is at its lowest in 40 years there are still many black communities living in fear of muggings and murders. We hear what the Pakistani press is reporting about the relationship between the US and its ally in the war in Afghanistan. And we profile a Muslim rock star, who has been called the “Pakistani Bono.”
