gunbanchicagoOct. 28, 2012, the city of Chicago surpassed the previous year’s number of murders (433), when a man, identified as 68-year-old Bariffe Fitz, was found shot to death in a home on the city’s South Side. A few hours later, another man died at Northwestern Memorial Hospital after being shot multiple times.

Following the grisly milestone, Mayor Rahm Emanuel told CBS Chicago:

“We have other milestones. One is, overall crime is down 9 percent in the city, the single-largest drop on record. Second, we’re tearing down the 200th building where gang bangers and drug dealers hang out.”

Obviously, the fact that life in Chicago is as cheap as the guns that are illegally sold in the streets of that city has no bearing on the mayor’s conscience.

The following is the number of murders which have taken place in Chicago since 1990:

1990: 851

Since January 1, 1990, an astonishing 14,973 people have been murdered in Chicago. Even worse, many of the victims have been children.

There have been 62 school-aged children murdered in that city in 2012, alone.

Of course, it could have been worse, since an astounding 446 children have actually been shot this year.
The following case is fairly typical in the city that is now more dangerous than Baghdad:
