Saw a list of top 30 cities with murder rates.
Seems Chicago was #25 out of 30. I did I think see Birmingham am, & Jackson Mississippi in top 6.

OF COURSE PG , just like MM you have an agenda and allowed by ADG to be the newspaper version of fox & friends divided by seaaaaam hannnnniy@cherrypicking his venom.

" murder RATES"
Yes there are MUCH SMALLER cities with higher murder RATES .

Birmingham has a murder RATE of 37.2 per 100,000
Jackson has a murder RATE of 35.4 per 100,000

Chicago, a city over 4x as big, has a murder RATE of 15.1 per 100,000.

Why do the smaller cities of Birmingham Alabama and Jackson Mississippi have such a high murder RATE?

Racial demographics !

Birmingham has 72% ...........Blacks
Jackson has 82%.................Blacks

if the anonymous mrcharles wants to use murder RATES, he should look at the small city of East St Louis Il.

murder RATE of...........71.4

95% of the population is Black
