Crime is Dow....Wait, What? Up?
- Chicago police have released their first crime report of 2015, and it's up slightly from last year.
There were eight more murders this January compared to last year. There were also 31 more shootings compared to last January, and 38 more shooting victims.
Chicago police point out that 2014's crime was the lowest since 1964.
Nearly a murder a day....in January. Nicely done thugs! We heard at least one report saying, "Well, this is still less than January 2013." They play these numbers so badly - if it isn't good to compare to 2014, well let's go back to 2013. And if that doesn't work, say that 2014 was low compared to whatever, so we're just returning to the average or whatever. And the shooting numbers...didn't McCompStat only start keeping track of shootings his way since 2010 or so? It's all so much bullshit.
