Wonderful Chicago

Among what are considered Alpha world cities, Chicago has the highest murder rate -- higher even than the Third World metropolises of Mexico City and Sao Paolo.
Here’s how we rank in murders per 100,000 among cities we consider our peers, based on a projected murder total of 505 for this year.

Singapore 0.4
Tokyo   0.5
Hong Kong 0.6
Berlin     1.0
Sydney    1.0
London 1.4
Toronto  1.7
Amsterdam 1.8
Paris       4.4
New York 6.0
Los Angeles 7.5
Mexico City 8.0
Moscow 9.6
Sao Paulo   15.6
Chicago 19.4

The African American murder victimization rate was approximately 34 per 100,000; the Hispanic rate was 11 per 100,000, and the white rate 3 per 100,000

Chicago has very strong gun laws, so only the criminals and fortuneately the police have guns.  This is a beautiful city, but there are neighborhoods where innocent people and gang members are murdered almost every night.  

To top off the greatness of Chicago, the teacher are on strike.

The democrats have certainly done a great job governing Chicago.  The corruption has helped certain portions of the populous but others live in fear.
