Take THAT, Detroit

Chicago is now a safer place to live than it was in 1966. Murder rates are down to a 40 year low, and the murder capital crown now belongs to Detroit. Our current murder tally mark is 418, down from 598 last year. There are still 30 days left in the year, but it looks like we will be staying well below the 500 mark.

    Congrads to Chicago! Maybe our “great” leader Kwame will send someone your way to figure out what could change here. I have no clue where Detroit’s murder numbers will be this year.

    With the holiday season approaching we may still break 450. Merry christmas with a shotgun or machete sort of thing.
