Scranton's homicide rate is way up in 2008. We've had four homicides thus far as compared to 2 in 2007 and 0 in 2006. At this rate of doubling we'll have 8 in 2009!

Murders in the City of Atlanta are down this year, canít say the same for some of the suburban areas like Clayton County which will probably be worse than Atlanta soon. But even though murders are down, stuff like armed robberies and car jackings are waaaayy up, which I would say is a direct result of the economy. It seems like everyday somebody is getting carjacked here, they used to wait until you were out of the car to steal it, now they just steal the car with you still in it. Armed Car jackings have been an epidemic here in Atlanta this year
