the third-deadliest month of a bloody 2016 in Chicago. Seventy-seven people were murdered in Barack Obama's hometown this past month, only August and October were worse. As those are recent months it's easy to ascertain that the violence plaguing Chiraq is getting worse.
Numbers vary, the police say 682 people were murdered so far in Chicago this year, whereas the generally reliable Hey Jackass! gives a total of 737, although that total is for homicides, and not all murders are homicides.
