Rahm's New Battle Cry
- Chicago may be known for its high murder rate, but one city has surpassed the windy city in homicide rates thus far this year.
The murder rate in Memphis, Tennessee is about 64 percent higher than that of Chicago this year, according to local outlet the Commercial Appeal.
Memphis has experienced a violent first three months with 60 people killed in 2016 at the end of March -- compared to 35 homicides this time last year. Those numbers put the homicide rate around 9.13 victims per 100,000 population.
In the same time period, 151 people had been killed in Chicago, but with a population of 2,722,389, the homicide rate is only at 5.55.
