Philly Homicide Record Reaches Record Low

Last time it was this low was 1967... BEFORE MAYOR RIZZO, when Philadelphia's population was just a tad underneath 2 million (now 1.4 million).

Obamatown still the murder capital of the USA

Quote:The number of homicides in the United States’ biggest cities hit record lows again in 2013 as the murder rate nationally continued to drop to levels not seen since the 1960s.

According to year-end data released by police departments around the country, Chicago still leads the country in homicides with 415,

Philly's been safer than Chicago and way safer than Baltimore going on a decade now. DC and NYC murder rates dropped thanks to gentrification. It's not technowhizbang SWAT teams with tacticool rifles and armored tanks. It's because most low-end drug dealers usually live with mom or grandmom and their girlfriends who shit out babies constantly to feed the cycle of most of the violence can't pay rent and no new public housing coming online, they can't wait 20 years for a free voucher so they're headed to the cheap housing stock outside the city.

Real estate is more powerful a force that shapes human behavior en masse except for one thing: money itself.
