    Between 1997 and 2002, the murder rate held steady at 24 murders per million people in my city -- while, in 2002, Chicago experienced 229 murders per million people.

    yeah.... canada has a much lower murder rate.

    "Over the past 10 years, Baltimore has been notorious for having the highest homicide rate in the country. In addition, the city has consistently led the nation in violent crime, STDs and cancer rate."



    Baltimore's homicide rate climbs
    Thursday, January 1, 2004 Posted: 10:11 AM EST (1511 GMT)

    BALTIMORE, Maryland (AP) -- The city's homicide rate increased last year for the first time since 1998 as authorities said killings became more targeted, often in connection with the drug trade.

    As of Wednesday, the city had reported 271 killings in 2003, compared with 253 in 2002. It's a 7 percent increase and the highest homicide total during the four-year tenure of Mayor Martin O'Malley, who campaigned on a pledge to reduce annual homicide totals to 175.

    Police Commissioner Kevin P. Clark said part of the increase was due to gunmen hitting their victims with more bullets.

    "They are not looking to shoot a guy in the leg to send a message," Clark said. "They are out to kill these guys."

    Police also said the increase resulted, in part, from an unusually high number of victims who died in 2003 from injuries sustained earlier -- 18 such deaths were recorded last year, compared with eight in 2002.
    ...........................................

    The United States’ average yearly homicide rate is 5.6 per every 100,000 people. Maryland’s rate is 8.3 per 100,000, and Baltimore City has a homicide rate of 38.8 per 100,000 people. In some neighborhoods, Harries said, that number approaches 100 per 100,000.

    Chicago topped nation in homicides in 2003
    CHICAGO (AP) — Despite a sharp drop in homicides, Chicago has regained a title it didn't want: America's murder capital.
    The city finished 2003 with 599 homicides, police said Thursday. That was down from 648 a year earlier and the first time since 1967 that the total dipped below 600.

    Still, the nation's third-largest city outpaced all others for the second time in three years. New York, with about three times the population, ended the year with 596 homicides. Los Angeles, which had the most murders in 2002 at 658, wound up 2003 with an estimated total just under 500.

    Chicago's new police superintendent, Philip J. Cline, joined colleagues elsewhere in blaming homicides largely on a volatile mix of gangs, guns and drugs.

    But officials pointed to a new system established in June, partly inspired by New York's computerized crime analysis unit, that contributed to an 18% drop in Chicago murders in the second half of 2003 compared with a year earlier.

    In New York, the unofficial murder tally of 596 compared with 584 in 2002. That was a 2% jump but still made 2003 the city's second straight year below 600 — dramatically less than the 2,245 homicides recorded in 1990.

    St. Louis logged its lowest murder total in more than four decades, a showing that police credited to aggressive efforts to track down violent offenders.

    Police said there were 69 killings in the Gateway City in 2003, matching the total of 1962. The number was a 39% decrease from the 2002 total of 113.

    St. Louis Police Chief Joe Mokwa said the addition of 100 more officers to the force and "the strategy of confronting the most violent offenders has left our neighborhoods more stable."

    Baltimore homicides increased for the first time since 1998 as authorities said killings became more targeted, often in connection with the drug trade.

    As of Wednesday, Baltimore reported 271 killings in 2003, compared with 253 in 2002. It was a 7% increase and the highest homicide total during the four-year tenure of Mayor Martin O'Malley, who campaigned on a pledge to reduce annual totals to 175.

    Baltimore Police Commissioner Kevin P. Clark said part of the increase was due to gunmen hitting their victims with more bullets.

    "They are not looking to shoot a guy in the leg to send a message," Clark said. "They are out to kill these guys."

    Preliminary figures from the District of Columbia showed the homicide rate dropping 6% in the nation's capital, from 262 in 2002 to 247 last year. But 2004 began with two homicides in about nine hours.

    No final figures were available for Detroit, but an FBI report in mid-December put the city on a pace to end 2003 with its fewest homicides since 1968. The total would be about 365, the FBI said.

    i couldn't find any exact figures, but it would be pretty low considering guns are not freely available. there's been a spree of mafia killings the last 2 years, and last night the cops avoided number 28 in the gang war according to the papers
