Participants in the "10,000 Men: It's a New Day" initiative walk through a neighborhood on the first night of their patrols in south Philadelphia November 27, 2007. Philadelphia's black community on Tuesday launched civilian street patrols aimed at curbing the highest murder rate among major American cities. In an experiment being watched by at least five other U.S. cities, 32 men in two groups spent the early evening hours walking the streets of South Philadelphia to deter street crime in one of the city's most dangerous areas.
