Chicago and New York are neck and neck for the murder capital (raw number-wise), its good to see New Orleans had a drop.

Are you for real? You've got to be a troll. Nobody who is serious would actually be proud of the violence that plagues their city.

Personally, as someone who has had people murdered less than 1/2 a block from her house on more than one occasion, a happy day for me would be the day that Chicago has the least amount of murders in the US, and I'll continue to work to try and make that happen while you (I can only presume) sit in mother's basement in suburbs and write barely literate screeds about gangs and ghettos.

People who romanticize violence make me sick.

I'm sure you know what I mean. People have been murdered on my street, I was in no way involved.

That's terrible, I can relate as people have been murdered in my apartment complex, I've actually seen a few dead bodies throughout the years.
