Cleveland
2009-26
2010-8
Take a look for yourself, I got this data from Cleveland.com. I can't believe how much differnce a year makes.

Northeast Ohio homicides | Data Central from The Plain Dealer - cleveland.com

Kinda gotta count between the period of January 1st and March 13th for both years.

from a chicago paper

"Eight fewer homicides over the first two months of 2010 shows a 16 percent decrease"

You think Chicago's decrease has to do with the weather?

Not likely. This year's winter has been surprisingly mild compared to last years. We've had little slow and many days of above average temperatures. Perfect weather for ne'er do wells to be hanging out on the street and getting into trouble.

I don't even keep up with Chicago's murder rate. It's irrelevant to me, because people arent getting killed out here like how they used to get killed back when I was a kid. Its not going down like that. Im 21 years old, and people my age saw more bodies in the late 90's and early 2000's than these preteens and highschoolers are seeing now. And the older dudes in the "hood" from the crack days will tell you how it used to go down.

Agree... I'm 20 and I remember being 4 years old up to teens when murder and shootings where more prevalent.

Stuff was grimier back then.

My town/neighborhood of South Jamaica (pop. below 100,000) is at 4 as of 2/28, this really sucks, some people are starting to call it Little Iraq and not necessarily because of the killings, its because so many people have gotten shot this year, they show how many people died but not the ones who survived.

NYC is at 69 as of 2/28.

I think I'm gonna stop posting in crime/ghetto/etc. threads because they're depressing and they're getting old, there's only a handful of people on C-D who really understand, this is nothing to brag and boast about.

obviously nothing beats nyc because it is much bigger than other cities. but take the actual rate per 100k into account and ya, nyc was bad, but there was worse for sure.
