  • The officer down website linked above also lists three K9 officers (dogs) killed by gunfire, and eight more liked by various means for a total of 11 K9s.

    This number is equalled by the heat exhaustion deaths of 11 K9s left in cars by their handler partners.

    So perhaps we should increase the tally of cops killed by cops to 13 of 37.

  • We now have in Uptown the highest murder rate in well over a decade with a few months left to pile on, hopefully not but likely.

    Meanwhile Cappleman is Tweeting abstarct cherry-picked crime data like this July has less crime then your average July.
