In April of last year, author Brad Thor announced that taxes and violence were reasons his family would be leaving Chicago. Today Thor cited more evidence validating the decision to relocate:
The Chicago Tribune reported that while the number of homicides dropped, the number of shooting victims rose dramatically.
@BradThor You mean Rahmbo asking gang-bangers to aim more carefully didn't reduce the number of victims? Didn't see THAT coming.

@BradThor $95M in OT for extra police = 3% drop in "slayings", however # could rise if unsolved cases are ruled "slaying." Where r protests?
