Media Roundtable: Violent Crime Spikes In Jacksonville
Jacksonville is inching closer to retaining the title of murder capital of Florida.Shootings and murders have continued apace in recent weeks with many residents seemingly issuing a collective yawn towards the violence as simply a fact of life in some neighborhoods.
Joining us on our regular Friday media roundtable to discuss this and other stories is our panel of local journalists:
- A.G. Gancarski, Folio Weekly columnist
- Meredith Rutland, Florida Times-Union reporter
- Tim Gibbons, Jacksonville Business Journal editor
Additional topics include the newly approved student code of conduct at Duval Schools, the unflattering audit of Mayor Alvin Brown's travel records and Hurricane Arthur.
