13 Days, 14 Homicides in D.C.
It shows just how far we have come in reducing crime when this sort of crime spree is headline news.
Washington, DC averaged well more than one homicide a day in the late 1980s and early 1990s. It would almost have been news if there were as few as 14 homicides in 13 days during those years.
