    Twenty-seven homicides have been logged so far in July. Fifty-five homicides were recorded in July 2011, according to RedEye data. Download the spreadsheet of year to date murders.

    287 murders year to date 2012. That equals over 41 a month.

    Out of the ordinary is what gets attention.

    Out of ordinary? It's guns in both cases.

    Gosh, I don't know. But somebody ought to call or text Al and Jesse pronto! You know how those two get whenever there's a chance to remind everyone seeing them on TV that these boys were hunted down in the streets like dogs. Oh, wait a sec...this is black on black murder, huh? Forget the two race pimps then. Not their kind of gig.
