Not saying Chicago is in a good state, but from the article in the OP: "The city crime data portal shows that murders and shootings are down, but only when compared to 2012. When compared to 2011, the number of murders is almost identical."
2011 had the lowest number of homicides in Chicago in the last 25 years, so saying it equaled 2011 is actually a pretty good thing.
You would think the city with the most restrictive gun control would have less gun crime. Color me shocked!
thankfully i live just outside of chicago. so im safe! but parts of the city are really nice just stay away from the south side. shit goes down there.
But then again, educating people and cracking down on criminals is hard. Blaming firearms is so easy, even Senator Feinstein can do it!
I just re read the title. How do you have 53 homicides and only 41 deaths?.
I guess you could have bodies that were killed in july and only found in august?
He he - those statistics are like 1/10th (actually - just checked, probably even less) of what happens in South Africa - this is a "suburb" of Port Elizabeth, South Africa called "Walmer" for 2012 - this is "one" policestation's statistics
110 sex crimes
347 assaults with intent to do previous bodily harm
328 common assaults.
465 motor vehicle thefts
807 residential burglaries
I think a ban on rap music would be more benefitial than a ban on firearms. Also you couldnt pay me enough to live in SA. It was a gorgeous country during apartied.
