Homicides in Chicago have increased 81 percent since 2014.

If only there was something that could correlate with this timeframe. If only there was some group complaining about the police, some group demanding need for less policing, some group fanning racial flames when anyone mentions inner city crime, and some group protesting police activity then maybe, just maybe ... we might be able to identify a potential influencer of additional violence and obstacle to change.

Oh well, might as well blame Republicans and guns.

Baltimore reaches 200 homicides with man's fatal stabbing

Justin FentonContact ReporterThe Baltimore Sun
Baltimore has reached 200 homicide victims in 2016.
Baltimore officially has had 200 homicide victims in 2016 after an autopsy confirmed a 42-year-old man found dead Friday just west of downtown had been fatally stabbed.

The victim, identified Monday as Franswhaun Smith, was found Friday about 7:50 a.m. in the 700 block of Murphy Lane, in the Heritage Crossing neighborhood that was formerly the site of the Murphy Homes public housing development.



Smith was pronounced dead at the scene. Police said an autopsy confirmed he had been stabbed in the back.

It is the fifth consecutive year Baltimore's homicide tally has reached 200 after recording 197 in all of 2011. That was the first time the city had recorded fewer than 200 victims since the late 1970s.









Last year, 344 people were killed in Baltimore, the city's highest highest-per capita rate ever.

As of Aug. 20, the most recent data available, homicides were down 11 percent compared with the same time last year, while nonfatal shootings were up slightly, from 414 at that time last year to 427 this year.



Police did not release any additional details about Smith's death. They asked anyone with information to call detectives at 1-866-7LOCKUP.

Court records show Smith pleaded guilty to second-degree murder in 1998, receiving a sentence of 30 years with all but five years suspended. After three violations of his probation, he was sentenced to 15 years of the suspended time in 2004. A spokesman for the state prison system confirmed Smith was released in July 2014.

Attempts to reach relatives were not immediately successful.

Smith was one of several recent homicide victims. Over the weekend, police arrested 23-year-old Jerome Arnold and charged him with first-degree murder in the death of a woman he confessed to killing in a wooded area in Brooklyn.

The investigation began when police in Howard County received a call Friday afternoon from a relative of Arnold's in Ellicott City, who suspected that Arnold may have been involved in a crime in Baltimore. Arnold was taken to Baltimore police headquarters, where he told police he had killed Lisa Studley, 36, and left her body in a wooded area off St. Margaret Street, according to charging documents.

Police found Studley's body on the ground with head trauma and in a pool of blood, police wrote in charging documents.

Arnold described Studley to police as his girlfriend, and said he had lured her into the woods using a ruse that he wanted to "talk." He then struck her several times in the head with a hammer, police said.

Arnold said he put his bloody clothes into a backpack and put on a new outfit. Police later recovered the backpack and bloody clothes.

Attempts to reach Studley's family were not successful.

Arnold appeared Monday before a district judge and was ordered held without bond pending trial. He did not have a lawyer listed in court records.

A 48-year-old man also was shot in the chest in West Baltimore early Monday, police said.

Officers were called at 1:55 a.m. to the 2300 block of Lauretta Ave., where they found the victim, who was not named.

Police did not release the man's condition, but said he was conscious and breathing when he was taken to a hospital.

Someone got statistics on how many of those deaths in Chicago or Baltimore are black? Also, how many were caused by cops(of any race since it doesn't seem to matter then)?

Someone should alert Black Lives Matter since it seems to me they don't unless there is someone to blame or grandstanding to do for media attention.

Same old..same old for Chicago...They are currently at a murder rate that was prevalent in 1950's 60's

I've never understood why people today are so "surprised" by the Chicago murder rate.

No one is surprised by the murder rate. I think mostly we are tired of the BS being slung around about pretend problems when there are some very real issues that are being ignored.

So, you are okay with today's numbers? Let's go back nearly 50 years and compare the two. :derp:
I'm more worried about the murder rate in Louisiana than Illinois. with 10.8 murders for every 100,000 people (the only state in double digits per 100,000 people) without having a major city like Chicago or Baltimore or Detroit or New York City

If you look at the highest murder rate per 100,000 people in Large cities for 2016.

1. Baltimore...up 63%
2. Detroit
3. Washington DC up 51%
4. Las Vegas
5. Chicago

It is obvious when you have more people you will have more murders.....Everyone points at Chicago and says look a major city had 500+ murders in a year!!.....This isn't uncommon.

Hell from 1990 to 1999 New York City saw 17,832 murders...an avg of 1,784 murders per year in the city....from 2000 to 2009 NYC avg 885 murders per year in the city.


The only thing that makes Chicago get all the attention are its gun laws....and lack of enforcing them...That is it....it is nothing more than political rhetoric and pandering.

Nothing to see here...carry on.

Binman - I think you are incorrectly comparing the number of homicides in Chicago annually to the number now. Remember, the totals are are just current year-to-date totals. Chicago is experiencing a 20-year high for murders. They have already surpassed last year's total and we still have a 1/3 of the year left!

Interesting that we haven't seen to many news articles linking the rise is anti-police protesting and increase in violent crimes. Baltimore and Chicago have had several anti-police incidents.

I'm not certain that pointing out the complete failure of very strict gun control laws to reduce gun violence is rhetoric and pandering.

Shooting people is already against the law. They apparently don't give much credence to that law, so what makes anyone think they give any credence to gun control laws?

If you were to take the murder rate per city for every 100,000 people in recent years and remove the names of the city you wouldn't be able to pick out Chicago vs any other city in the world or the US even.

Lets try shall we (no cheating)

1. 43.89 murders per 100,000 people
2. 41.44 murders per 100,000 people
3. 39.09 murders per 100,000 people
4 59.23 murders per 100,000 people
5. 41.14 murders per 100,000 people
6. 18.5 murders per 100,000 people
7. 119.87 murders per 100,000 people
8. 33.3 murders per 100,000 people
9. 62 murders per 100,000 people
10. 35.8 murders per 100,000 people

Which one is Chicago??
