Chicago saw more 2016 murders than New York City, Los Angeles combined

They will blame everyone but themselves. Chicago violence: Chicago saw more 2016 murders than New York City, Los Angeles combined – CBS News

One of the most violent years in Chicago history ended with a sobering tally: 762 homicides, the most in two decades in the city and more than New York and Los Angeles combined.

Hey Jackass! has other figures, but they are equally disturbing.

The powers that be are calling the “flood of illegal guns” out as the problem. They have taken 1000s of guns off the street, but not incarcerated 1000s of criminals.

While New York City saw a slight decrease in homicides and Los Angeles a slight increase for 2016, both have hit historic lows in the past several years. Philadelphia, which has also seen a dip in murder rates overall, saw a small decrease for 2016.

So where are the guns flowing into NY City and Philadelphia? Or are they handling criminals differently?
