Chicago's homicide total is down slightly for the first six months of the year, police officials said Friday.
So far in 2006, 201 people have been murdered, Supt. Phil Cline announced. At this time last year, there had been 210 murders.That's a decline of 4.3 percent.
Harrison/Fillmo'/011 continues it's torrid pace, up from 10 homicides in the first 6 months last year to 22 already through June this year. Let's buckle down a bit there boys and girls, eh? On the other hand, 4.3% sounds so much more impressive than a reduction of only 9 murders, doesn't it? Remember, it's all in the presentation.
