Chicago Murder Rate

Chicago Magazine has an interesting and exhaustive article on the homicide rate being doctored to lower it, driven, of course, by political necessity.

My Take: As gun rights have recently made significant improvements in Chicago, we'd be well-advised to be skeptical of any increase in homicide rates, and similarly, careful about putting too much stock in lower numbers unless those numbers are scrubbed for these "death investigations".
