The guys in Chicago - home of Mayor Raum Emmanuel - don't like the way they are looking with all the murders.

So when the Chicago media looks into it, and does a little comparative analysis...


Check it out.

The Deadliest Global City

By Edward McClelland | Tuesday, Jul 31, 2012

Chicago likes to compare itself to other world cities, so Ward Room thought it would find out how we rank in violence.
It turns out no one can top us.

Among what are considered Alpha world cities, Chicago has the highest murder rate -- higher even than the Third World
metropolises of Mexico City and Sao Paolo. Here’s how we rank in murders per 100,000 among cities we consider our peers,
based on a projected murder total of 505 for this year.

Singapore 0.4
Tokyo 0.5
Hong Kong 0.6
Berlin 1.0
Sydney 1.0
London 1.4
Toronto 1.7
Amsterdam 1.8
Paris 4.4
New York 6.0
Los Angeles 7.5
Mexico City 8.0
Moscow 9.6
Sao Paolo 15.6
Chicago 19.4

We could be doing worse: Caracas, Venezuela has a murder rate of 130 per 100,000.

Hey, if the boys in Chicago will admit it... :hmm:

Funny thing - nobody mentioned that they have the strictest gun-control laws in the USA.
If you own a gun, and you're not a cop, you're a criminal.
Workin' out great, eh?

:rolleyes: :facepalm:


You guys in Chicago, look out!!!

No wonder they used it as Gotham City. Another crime-infested hellhole.

There has to be some mistake. Gun control just HAS to work. Right?

So gun control caused the jump in the murder rate, not the raging gang war?

I don't suppose that having a totally corrupt government would have anything to do with the crime rate

I think that statement was a jab at NEO because he lives in Arizona.

When in fact he's from Kansas residing in Az.
