  •  Monticello, IN: What's in your water? (0+ / 0-)

    Last year they had a homicide in town and another nearby.  Last night a double homicide in which a man stabbed his mother and half-sister.  (Indiana is libertarian on gun laws.)

    The population is 5,389.  This makes for a homicide rate is 27 per 100,000 over two years, if Monticello is spared for the rest of 2013.  Chicago's was about 18 per 100,000 and that city's people are concerned.  

    Maybe these aren't the scary ones where strangers break in or bullets from a drive-by hit a bystander.
