MURDERS DOWN IN COWTOWN, TOO

|

Dallas reported yesterday a 2.7 percent overall reduction in the city’s crime rate, including a drop in murders of 5.6 percent, or 187 reported killed compared to 198 in 2005.

Fort Worth’s population is smaller than Dallas’s but its murder rate for 2006 dropped even more–18 percent, or a total of 51 reported homicides. At least there’s no way THAT can be blamed on Katrina evacuees.
