“…the most murder-plagued big city…”

David Gambarcorta posted a piece on the Daily News site today about the murder rate in Philadelphia.

Much of what I’ve read previously claims our rate isn’t much higher than other cities and that increasing violence, particularly gun-related, is on the rise all of the country. Well, turns out those are big fat lies.

Check out the homicide totals (to the right) and read on about how “Philadelphia is the most murder-plagued big city in the country.”

Oh, and the cops still like to blame the weather. Now they say there are more indoor homicides because it’s cold. If you recall, over the summer they claimed the violence would decrease when the weather cooled off.

Not so much. Try another excuse.
