Do you know what the murder rate for the year is yet?

CMPD will not be honest about any crime information, but I think you have been counting murders.

of course not! he's almost never there, and this time he's probably having drinks on our dime w/his buddy Eric Holder in D.C.

We are all intelligent people, well at least those of us who can read between the lines. This is why we are no longer able to get the crime stats, so that CMPD can fix the true numbers.

The number is somewhere around 53 to 54 this year....
