300 (not the movie)

Over the weekend in Philadelphia we had our 300th murder (link).

We are already 28 murders ahead of where we were last year on this date. The total for last year within the city limits was 406 murders.

Here is a map (link) of where the murders happened, as well as the names, age, date, time, weapon and race of the victims. This is current from Jan 1 to Jun 30 of 2007.

Here is a map (link) of the (reported) shootings in Philadelphia.

I wish this was only a movie.
