Chicago Reaches 500 Murders In 2012

Chicago is notorious for its strict gun “control.”

And yet, the “Windy City” just reached a grizzly milestone last night with its 500th murder this year.

(Editor’s note: Crime in Chicago blog says we’re at 527)

With 87 percent of these homicides being firearm-related (Washington Post, December 21).

From Jeremy Gorner and Peter Nickeas this morning on the Chicago Tribune website:

[Nathaniel T. Jackson’s] death was apparently the 500th homicide in Chicago this year, marking a grim milestone. The city last reached that toll in 2008…

As of Thursday night, homicides were up 17 percent over last year in Chicago, and shootings had increased by 11 percent, according to police statistics.

Hunter Clauss and Jordan Owen added the following on the Chicago Sun-Times website:

A 40-year-old man fatally shot in the Austin neighborhood Thursday night was the city’s 500th homicide of 2012, authorities said…

The last year the city’s homicide total reached 500 was in 2008, when 512 people were killed, according to police department records.

So, where does the City go from here?

Let me guess. Chicagoans will be lectured on how more gun “control” is needed.
