“This is a book about a very simple idea: where the criminal justice system fails to respond vigorously to violent injury and death, homicide becomes endemic. African Americans have suffered from just such a lack of effective criminal justice, and this, more than anything, is the reason for the nation’s long-standing plague of black homicides.”
Jill Leovy, Ghettoside: A True Story of Murder in America

“Fundamentally gangs are a consequence of lawlessness, not a cause.”
Jill Leovy, Ghettoside: A True Story of Murder in America

“The system’s failure to catch killers effectively made black lives cheap.”
Jill Leovy, Ghettoside: A True Story of Murder in America
