Like Love Haha Wow Sad Angry

At least 12 major U.S. cities already have set annual homicide records with three weeks remaining in 2021.

Chicago led the nation with 739 homicides as of the end of November. That’s up 3% from 2020, according to Chicago Police Department crime data, but well short of the city’s 974 homicides in 1970.

ABC News reported that Philadelphia, a city of roughly 1.5 million people, has had more homicides (521 as of Dec. 6) than the nation’s two largest cities, New York (443 as of Dec. 5) and Los Angeles (352 as of Nov. 27).
