Crime Rate Down But Some Numbers Troubling

The good news is that the Chicago Police announced that the overall crime rate dropped in the first two months of 2011 compared to the first two months of 2010.  The number of robberies, aggravated assaults, batteries, thefts and arsons all decreased.  However, the murder rate increased by 18 percent, car thefts increased by 20 percent, after increasing 23 percent last year, and the number of rapes increased by 4 percent.
