The way people are talking bout Philly, I thought that it was leading America in murders for sure and that yall would spare my city that title in the process since we need them Olympics. But I was prompted to check up on the stats after reading a new articles bout NYC's murder total being its lowest in 40 years. And I come to find out that both New York and Chicago are ahead of Philadelphia after Philly led EARLIER this year but "slipped". There were 338 murders in Philly by the end of October, and 380+ in Chicago over that same span. Plus NY was near Chicago also and either one of us is gonna end up wit that bullshit. LA had just 340ish by the end of October and cant catch Chicago and NY.

Fact is Philly has murder percentages per citizen that are much higher then these other mentioned cities....and Philly's problem is spread ALL OVER from N, S, E, W and everywhere in between. It's not pockets ov violence, it is ALL OVER!!!!

We need to start in the SW section of philly where is is less prevalant, and push all those garbage F!@#ers to the North East. We need to start in the SW block by block and take our city back! The north east is too far gone, let it rot! Clean up our area while we still have a vague chance!

Depending on your neighborhood, you must be crazy. Not all parts are that bad, but being a small white girl you tempt fate, be safe.

Sorry Baltimore was murder capital in 2007. There were more murders per capita in Baltimore than anyother place, except for maybe detroit. I couldn't find stats on Detroit.
