Chicago hits 500 murders: Is corruption a cause?
December 29, 2012 in Guns
Chicago officials are deflecting blame for the city’s epidemic of murders this year. When local media outlets reported news of the 500th murder of the year yesterday, the city’s PR department immediately issued a statement saying it was untrue because a previous homicide had been reclassified. City Hall’s resistance to accept the tragic milestone became useless only 2 hours later when officials acknowledged that yet another murder had occurred.
