Murder totals by country are rather meaningless statistics, for they are not related to population numbers.
But if you need be fond of your data interpretation, Romish Church connection you try to make is not there anyway. Consider Spain is ranked #34 with 94% RC, and the US is #3 with 24% RC. Russia is ranked #4, with 0.1% RC population.
Tragic events impacting many. I pray for a day when there will be no more violence in our land. I pray too against unreasonable politicians, particularly in Chicago, who continue to push gun control to the peril of their citizenry.
Oh boy. The rest of the article runs down each person. I grew up in Chicago, and although you need to be on gaurd in any metropolitan area, it wasn't nearly as bad as it is now. I would never go into or through the far S/SW sides and I never ventured into the Loop after dark. If I was ever out after dark, it was only on MI Ave or right off MI. Still danger then, but out of control now...in certain areas. I could never imagine taking a life.
