Philadelphia averaging more than "One Murder per day this Year"

After a violent weekend and another shooting on Monday, the homicide rate in Philadelphia soars to 15, making the number of killings more than the number of days into the new year. There were eight homicides in less than 48 hours as a violent weekend was met with yet another homicide when a 19-year-old was killed in West Oak Lane before noon Monday.

“What we are doing now is investigating shootings and homicides. We have our community crisis people in the neighborhoods, trying to get an idea of what is going on and to stop retaliation,” Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney said.

“At the end of the day it comes down to folks feel, like I do, who have had enough,” Acting Philadelphia Police Commissioner Christine Coulter said.

Can the Democrats not get a hold on controlling the guns in their city.

We need to go back to a time when guns were readily available for protection. Back then, we had far fewer murders by guns.

Does anyone know the ethnicity of the victims and the perpetrators of these horrific crimes? If they are as I suspect them to be then the figures shouldn't be included in the ovral statistics.
