Posted on 09/19/2013 11:39:16 AM PDT by Darren McCarty
Move over New York, the Second City is now the murder capital of America.
According to new crime statistics released this week by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Chicago had more homicides in 2012 than any other city in the country. There were 500 murders in Chicago last year, the FBI said, surpassing New York City, which had 419.
In 2011, there were 515 homicides in the Big Apple, compared with the 431 in Chicago.
But as the Washington Post noted, residents of Chicago and New York were much less likely to be victims of a homicide than some Michigan residents. In Flint, for example, there were 63 killings a staggering number when you consider Flint's population is 101,632 "meaning 1 in every 1,613 city residents were homicide victims." In Detroit, where 386 killings occurred in 2012, 1 in 1,832 were homicide victims.

Can someone help me here? I am trying to find a pattern and am having no luck.
compare and contrast to another country (real murder capitol)
from Nov 13 last year ....
“Caracas has already registered 3,218 homicides during the first 10 months of 2012, putting it easily on track to beat last years 3,488 homicides”
And most are black and most are gang-culture related, but it’s racist to point those things out.
At least the civil liberties of the perps aren’t being ‘dissed’ in Chicago. So watch the rates soar.
I’m supposing that they are murdering each other with something other than firearms in that “gun free city”.............
And Obuma comes from that cesspool smell’n like a rose....(riiiiight).
I would love to match these cities up against the cities in the USA with them most gun control. I've got some money that says it would be a very close match.
When they actually start controlling gangs, punks, and crazy people the homicide numbers will go down. That will not happen any time soon because the gangs, punks, and crazy people all support Obama.
Someone needs to pull the handle and flush Chicago into the big sewer and start over again.
500+ in chitown=EH!?. No big deal. Nothing to see here. Move along.
12 in d.c.=OMG! Ban all guns. Even crazy uncle joe’s shotgun.
Useless numbers. What is needed is # of homicides / population.
Cant be possible! Dont they have strict gun laws in Chicago?
I emailed Mayor Rhambo to deputize the Million Moms for Gun Control and send them into the Chicago ghetto under the aegis of the BATF and clean out all the illegal guns.
So far no action.

The DemocRat Plantations are thriving in thugs.
There are lots of Democrat cities that aren't out of control killzones. There are cities in Europe and Asia are practically Marxists but are pretty safe. I'm not saying that the Democrats aren't a contributing factor but there is some other commonality with these places.
Check the demographics of those cities and I bet you’ll see a few other similarities, though New York might be an exception.
