Well, I can play with headlines too :D

With just two days left in the year, according to preliminary numbers from the police department, the District has had 138 homicides compared with 184 at the same time last year, setting up the city to record the lowest number of homicides since 1964, when 132 were reported killed.

Helmke must be pissed. No matter how hard he prays tonight, there's no way he is going to get another 50 murders in one day.

The Bradys have their own FFL, they could easily sell to one of their fellow criminals for a mass murder today.

Weird. SFGate has basically the same stat about SF up tonight.


Was there a change in reporting standards or something?

No. But the NRA did take SF to court to force the City to allow law abiding tenants to possess firearms in housing projects. So residents of the most violent places in San Francisco have been allowed to keep guns in their homes since January. :)
