Sharp Decline In Chicago Murders

The Sun Times reports only two murders in Chicago over thanksgiving Day weekend.

Hey Jackass has an independent count of 8 murders in the last 7 days and only 50 shot.

With 330 pages torn off the 2017 calendar, the murder count stands at only 627, and a likely total of 550 for the full year.

The total of wounded stands at 2737, with the full year total likely to be under 2900, compared to 3658 wounded and 807 murdered in 2015.

Offhand, I cannot say why violence in Chicago is down, since none of hte usual causes seem to apply.
