The District's homicide rate recently surpassed the total for all of 2007, and has increased for the second straight year.
The total is now at 183 after a man was shot and killed Tuesday morning in the 1600 block of 11th Street NW.
I think it's interesting that police "recovered" 2,416 firearms this year, considering that unless the guns were all stolen from the cops, they never owned them to start with. And how is it that they were there in the first place? That would be against the law!
