  •  Ya know, if you are going to report this (0+ / 0-)

    you also need to state that in April of 2013 Chicago had its' lowest number of April homicides in 50 years and that overall for 2013, homicides are down to record low levels.

    It could be improvements in the policing OR  it could simply be the wet weather (although we did not have a bad winter...spring has been wet and relatively chilly).

    •  No, I don't NEED to do any of that. (1+ / 0-)

      You WANT me to do that, though, and it is a good statistic.  Since you've already taken care of it, I won't edit the diary.

      If you would read the ChicTrib piece, you will see that even they note that these tragedies followed Chicago's nicest weather of the year - assuming that you want to factor in the effect of weather on the murder/shootings rate.

      Struggle with dignity against injustice. IS there anything more honorable that a person can do?
