60 Less Murders!

Despite a growing budget crisis, the City of Brotherly Love saw a 15% decline in murders this year according to the Philadelphia Daily News, which in raw numbers is 60 less murders. The numbers were short of the goal of a 25% decline in murders, but progress is progress. One somber note is that the city lost 5 police officers to murder over a 14 month span, and 4 in an alarming 5 month span.
