This year why don't we change the way bodies are counted. Let's have two list, one with the body counts of innocent people, and one for the criminals, drug dealing, pos thugs. Let's see how many innocent people are getting killed. If the criminals want to kill each other let them, but don't act like their lives are worth the same as an innocent child or mother.

I think it is meant to be more of a wake up call to the fact that our city has a crime problem.
