Chicago Mayor Rahm Pinocchio: Murder is Up 37.8% in Chicago, but “Crime Overall” Dropped Yet Another 10%!

By Nicholas Stix

Rahm is getting to be as bad a liar as your typical, big-city police chief!

The city has seen its homicide rate increase by 37.8 percent in the first six months of the year, to 259 killings, and another 18 homicides were reported as of Wednesday afternoon.

The mayor's office said Wednesday that overall crime was down 10 percent for the year so far.
