The Truth About Chicago Crime Rates

Letting politics get in the way of the truth --

The Truth About Chicago’s Crime Rates | Chicago magazine | May 2014: "On November 30, a pathologist deferred the cause and manner of Walker’s death “pending police investigation.” That means the autopsy is inconclusive until the police further investigate the circumstances of his death. Walker’s death certificate, filed with the Cook County clerk’s office, says that he was murdered. No one disputes that he died from a bullet in his brain. But at presstime—four months after the shooting—the public record shows Walker’s case inexplicably classified not as a homicide but as a death investigation. That means, according to the department’s own records, Walker’s killing is not included in the city’s 2013 homicide total."
