Burglaries, according to the memo, are down 15 percent so far this year, and car thefts are down 13 percent.
However, the number of murders this year is more than last year.

Of course Burglaries are down, there is no one left with anything worth stealing.
All the thugs, punks, and low-lifes are murdering each other. Who is left to commit the crimes?
Way to go Mayor Rahm-wad. That’s a novel approach to reduce crime in Chicago.
Perhaps incidents going unreported or, once reported, classifying crimes as something less serious. Hasn’t the FBI been doing that for years?
Many of Chicago’s petty criminals are now gainfully employed at the White House.
“To 10 rap songs about guns”
0bama has had a few of these ‘artists’ to the WH.

Of course the crime rate is down, everyone is getting killed..Hey Chicago, heard that there were 6 more murders over the weekend..how’s that “Gun control” working out for ya
But how was the play, Mrs. Lincoln?
Yea....one thing missing from the story is the percentage ‘increase’ in murders. Details details
