CHICAGO—Having tallied a “very promising” 41 murders so far in 2013, police officials confirmed Tuesday that the annual Chicago Homicide Drive was off to its fastest start in more than a decade and was already well on its way to reaching this year’s goal for violent slayings. “It’s still January, but we’ve already seen an astounding number of contributions to this year’s murder drive,” Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy told reporters as he raised the red progress line on the Homicide Drive’s Murdometer, a 15-foot plywood silhouette of a gunned-down body that stands outside City Hall. “I don’t think anyone dreamed it would be possible to break last year’s staggering total of 506 murders, but with so many people chipping in all across the city, we may just do it. There’s a tremendous community-wide level of interest and participation in this yearly event, which is quickly becoming a treasured part of Chicago culture.” While McCarthy said he remained confident that Chicagoans would set a new Homicide Drive record this year, he cautioned that the city was beginning to face a shortage of potential victims in many of its highest-contributing neighborhoods

in the 90's they were at the 900 mark by the end of the year. Come on Chicago, we're all pulling for you to break 1000;)

A shining example of what happens in an "unarmed" society.
If you can call Chicago a "society" - the vast majority of the victims are gangbangers or drug traffic players, but there are unfortunately some innocent collateral victims there, too.
Keep up the good work, Rahm - you're making our point for us.

Barry's ol' stomping grounds need to step up gun control measures. They have taken guns out of the hands of the citizens... perhaps they should take them out of the hands of the police? I think that might stem the current murder crime wave! CALL MAYOR EMMANUAL! Tell him I have had a brain storm and it involves disarming legit gun carrying folk.... he will love it. If there is real trouble after that, he can call in the UN to help.
