    Baltimore homicides down!

    After starting off the year with a flurry of homicides--racking up 12 in the first 10 days of 2011, the homicides seem to have tapered off a bit. As of today, there have been 15 homicides in Baltimore. so instead of 1+ homicides per day (the rate during the first week of the year) Baltiore is down to almost 1 homicide every 2 days now, statistically...

    Way to go, Baltimore!

    At this rate, you should only have about 120 homicides in 2011. Now THAT is something to be proud of...

    When they count homicides is it the number of murders or the broader defiition of the killing of one human being by another even if it wasn't officially labeled as a crime? For instance, are those two deaths from that night club shooting where an officer and a patron were both gunned down by the Baltimore PD counted in the homicide count?

    Just curious if you know.

    I used to live in Montgomery County Maryland as a child and have worked there two seperate periods after college. I also have family and friends in the state and visit one or two times a year.
