Up zero percent would still make us a far too violent city.

I'd imagine that by the end of the year, nationwide trends will still keep us barely in the top 20. But sure, let's pretend two months is predictive.

Im not sure how you can say we are only top 20 most violent city in the US like thats a good thing. Many of those cities are some of the most violent in the world…

And I'm not sure how you can try and claim that DC is so wildly dangerous when Baltimore is literally an hour away.

This is a nationwide trend, and yet some of y'all are so goddamned intent on trying to point the finger at any little thing that local government does when the reality is far more complicated.

The existence of something worse doesnt mean we aren’t also bad

And I wouldn't say that barely being in the top 20 in a nation with a boner for having as many guns as possible makes us "bad," or certainly not as bad as needing a bullshit sensationalized headline about the fact that we've had a whopping 10 more homicides than we did at this point last year.
