USA Today names Baltimore (Bulletmore) 'the nation's most dangerous city'

Baltimore’s highest-ever per capita homicide rate in 2017 also made it the deadliest big city in the country, USA Today reported Monday.

Though official data from the FBI won’t be available until later in the year, USA Today reviewed the homicide rates in the nation’s 50 largest cities and Baltimore came out on top. The 342 homicides the city experienced in 2017 were a 17 percent increase over the prior year, and translated to a rate of 56 killed per 100,000 people.

That easily outpaced New Orleans and Detroit, which both had about 40 killings per 100,000 people, according to the report.

Baltimore had more homicides last year than New York City, Philadelphia and Los Angeles, all considerably larger cities. Only Chicago, also a considerably larger city, had more

If I counted the homicides properly there have been 89 so far this year. 2017 population estimate 611,648

Chicago is up to 141 this year. 2017 population estimate 2.716 million

You would have to multiply the population of Baltimore between 4,25 and 4.5 times to equal the population of Chicago. Lets be kind and multiply the homicides in Bulletmore by 3 =267. Very impressive.
