Are they counting people who are killed in routine crime around the area or just those who make it out alive?

I think they are going to places like Detroit where there is more opportunities and a more cosy, homey environment for living.

Dear Jizz Gargling Rider,

Do you feel anointed by being placed in Orchard Park?
Where would a loser such as you like to reside?

Wasn't there like over 50 shootings in Chicago over the weekend alone?
That's not counting your normal assaults, stabbings, sexual assaults, and arsons.

I don't really like Orchard Park and I think Detroit would be an ideal place.
You seem to get off insulting people. Does that give you an ego boost?

I'll send Byron over to Chicago so he can instruct them as to the correct implementation and management of a successful gun buyback program.

Lets see, Chicago is over 10 times the size of Buffalo.
So if Chicago has 50 shooting isn't that like Buffalo having 5?
Buffalo has 261,310 people and Chicago has 2,695,569 people.
Just asking.

Chicago had 10 shooting deaths over the long weekend

Maybe Chicago needs one of those Gang Death Squads like they have in Brazil that go around and kill gang members in Rio and Sao Paulo on sight

I was just asking because Buffalo does have a high rate of killings for a city of its size.
My point was Chicago is 10 plus times the size of Buffalo and Buffalo has almost as many killings as they do over the same weekend.[ maybe Buffalo should find out what Chicago is doing that Buffalo isn't]
I have been busy and I really have not watched T.V. or heard the news on how many killings Buffalo did have.
But if Chicago had 10 shooting deaths over the weekend and Buffalo had almost the same then it is time for the people of Buffalo to come down on their Mayor and their Chief of police and find out what Chicago is doing that Buffalo is not.
Have a nice night

3 white people and 0.40 black people leave Buffalo daily., And the decimal system is racist for making blacks the last part of the number!

NO YOU don't understand.
MY point is that Buffalo is 1/10 the size of Chicago and has almost as many killings as Chicago has.
SO there has to be something wrong with what is going on in Buffalo.
So before you start calling people names I would go back and read what they posted and look up some FACTS.
If there were 5 or more killings in Buffalo over the last weekend and 10 in Chicago [ and Chicago is over 10 times the size of Buffalo ] Wouldn't you say there is something wrong in Buffalo? DUH!
And YOU said that Chicago has a " Higher Murder rate than N.Y.C.", Then Buffalo has to have one way higher than that.
N.Y.C. has 8,244,010 people and Buffalo has 261,310 so if Buffalo has a murder rate over the last weekend almost as high as Chicago and theirs is higher than N.Y.C.s, lets see N.Y.C. has almost 8,000,000 more people than Buffalo,[about 32 times the # of people] wouldn't you say that the murder rate in Buffalo is a lot higher than N.Y.C.s?
So again wouldn't you say that there is something really wrong in Buffalo.
Have a nice night

Buffalo's minority population is greater than NYC or Chicago. That explains everything!

My thought was something like that is a good opportunity to create jobs for experienced combat vets.

Does T-bird use math when he counts his drinks at the bars and to extrapolate how many brain cells he is losing?
