Well Chicago takes #1 in something.  Obviously subby knows shiat about pizza.

Oh. another pizza thread. Chicago sucks.

Besides topping New York in pizza-flavored casserole, Chicago is now better than New York in another category: murder capital USA

Just send in Judge Dredd, he loves pizza bowls.

Population, Chicago: 2,700,000

Population, New York City: 8,200,000

Murders per capita, Chicago: 18.5

Murders per 100k, New York: 5.1

NYC would have to have more than 1500 murders to achieve the same "per capita".

Chicago has been "murder capital" for some time now.

But it's understandable. I'd farking kill people if they kept telling me that casserole-in-a-bread bowl was "pizza".
 
2013-09-19 08:19:19 PM
Yeah, Chicago is pretty awesome. Chicago can't help it if no one ever taught New Yorkers that good pizza doesn't taste like the kind they serve at high school cafeterias.
 
2013-09-19 08:20:12 PM
Oops; those both should have been "per 100k". Obviously.
 
2013-09-19 08:28:10 PM
There is no way New Orleans is way down at #8. Is this reported homicides, or number of reports police bothered to file, or some other metric?
And whatever they serve in Chicago, its not pizza.

What, are they whacking people as they fly in at O'Hare and Midway? Are they importing people to kill?

Didn't you ever watch The Untouchables? "They pull a knife, you pull a gun. They put one of yours in the hospital, you put one of theirs in the morgue. They put one of yours in the morgue, you go out and kill 17.5 people arriving at the airport. That's the Chicago campaign way."

I remember when they had over a thousand in the 80's and early 90's. That place was f*cking scary. Well, certain parts. New Jack City was an exaggeration, but not by a whole lot.

Yeah, I wasn't about to go out and look up statistics for every damned city. It just annoys me when people use straight numbers, rather than per capita, as a basis for comparison.

/once had to show someone locally that my current home town actually had a higher murder rate than NYC, despite their view that they'd "never go to New York, what with all the crime there."

Chicago doesn't even crack the top ten. Flint, Detroit, New Orleans, St Louis, Baltimore, Oakland, etc. In fact, Memphis, murder-city number 10, rolls up that list with 24.1 murders per 100k. Chicago has a long way to go to hit 24. The facts show you're far more likely to be murdered in St. Louis or Cleveland than in Chicago.

/Good God, Flint. 64.9 per 100k? Really?

A thousand times, this.

NewportBarGuy: I remember when they had over a thousand in the 80's and early 90's. That place was f*cking scary. Well, certain parts. New Jack City was an exaggeration, but not by a whole lot.


According to Compstat, NYC topped off at 2,262 murders in 1990, and 1993 was close to 2,000.  Five years later, it was in the 600s.

You want the really crazy numbers, take a look at Grand Larceny Auto over the past 30 years.  In NYC in 1990, there were roughly 147,000 car thefts.  In 2012, there were roughly 8,000.  In the whole city.

This is this week's Compstat, which includes the historical data (.pdf).  I was really hoping that we'd be under 300 murders for the year, but that looks increasingly unlikely.

Baltimore's population is actually 620,000. Sorry for this mistake. Still, that is a high murder rate.

You could easily hit the 100% murder rate in Buford, WY with a double-barrel shotgun.
 
2013-09-19 09:41:57 PM
St. Louis always gets a huge number, because it's a small city. If you include the county (which is separate, and not counted in the stats) the number drops way down.

Okay, this thread is splitting and I can't keep track.  Are we arguing about pizza, murders, or pizza-related murders?

As a Midwesterner, I like Chicago-style pizza but if I ever want New York-style pizza I can grab a Little Caesars down the block, so it's all good.

I love Chicago pizza. I love NY pizza. I love CA pizza. They are not mutually exclusive. They are different food types. They are all excellent when prepared well.
 
2013-09-19 10:02:04 PM
Ironically, I love every style of pizza except St. Louis style pizza*. Chicago deep dish is awesome, and New York by the slice pizza is awesome, but shiatty cheese and crackers is not pizza.

*Ironic because I'm from STL Metro

OOOOOooooooooooooooo.

Look at MEeeeeeeeeeeee

I'm Chigaco. You have to dig deeep in meeeeeee

I'm thick crust murder.
You won't find Jimmy HoffA OR Capone's treasure; just a deep, desiccated, devil-may-care, daring dual topping (extra toppings are extra, my friend) pizza that is so delicious, Mmmmmmmmmmmm, you're going to need a  photo of the crime scene to prove that you killed the whole thing.

This pizza is so bold, it's going to hit you on the head, drag you into a dark alleyway, tie you up, and stuff you in the trunk of an old DeSoto, then drive you to the woods, and drag you out, and tune you uuuuuuuuuuuuup.

Then it will pull out a shovel and make you dig your own grave.

Delivery in 40 minutes or less, or your next hit is free.

I swear people today have forgotten about how bad it was back then. I still remember getting a police escort out of Cabrini Green after we got lost there on a Friday night. Visiting my friends grandparents in Ponti-crack. My own grandpa in Lansing pointing out where the bodies he found after a shootout. Those were some dark times in those cities.

I can't remember where I found it, but l read that NYC's per capita murder rate (or total violent crime? Crime in general?) was comparable to Provo, Utah.

And just what do you have against Phạm Đình Nguyên? 

I grew up in Casper. I took my daughter back there this summer for a nice long ass drive to Yellowstone and Jackson Hole. I was really surprised at all the little towns that had disappeared. Natrona, WY for instance had a population of 10 according to the census when I was a kid. It was a bustling metropolis with a bar AND a grille. You could even buy gas there which was nice cause there isn't any farking thing else near it for 50 miles. It's not even on google maps these days.

I'm from Chicago.  If there's one thing people from Chicago don't pride themselves in, it's pizza.  I have family and friends in New York, and if there's one thing New Yorkers don't pride themselves on, it's murder.

See?  Everybody wins.

What's Chicago up to now, something like 50 deaths/person? Big shooting last night there, even a 3 year old was shot.
