High Schools and Murder: Location, Location, Location

I've added icons for the various Flint high schools — Central, Northern, Powers and Southwestern Academy — to the 2008 Flint Murder Map. It provides a nice visual representation of why Powers is willing to part with $5 million to relocate to Southwestern.

Please note that Northwestern and Powers are so close to each other that I couldn't figure out how to get an icon on the map for both of them. Nothing personal.

Thanks for commenting. I moderate comments, so it may take a while for your comment to appear. You might enjoy my book about Flint called "Teardown: Memoir of a Vanishing City," a Michigan Notable Book for 2014 and a finalist for the 33rd Annual Northern California Book Award for Creative NonFiction. Filmmaker Michael Moore described Teardown as "a brilliant chronicle of the Mad Maxization of a once-great American city." More information about Teardown is available at
