My Way News - Philly Struggles With Rising Murder Rate

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - A bloody, bullet-filled weekend left 11 people dead across the city, where drugs and disrespect have trumped brotherly love and the murder rate is on pace to be the highest in a decade.

Philadelphia has seen more than one killing a day this year, totaling 127 as of Monday afternoon. New York, Chicago and Los Angeles - whose populations are much larger than Philadelphia's 1.5 million residents - have had fewer homicides this year.

I think it is very clear that the United States should withdraw, certainly by March of '08 at the latest, from Philidelphia, Los Angeles, New York, and Chicago. But clearly the extremely dangerous state of things in Washington D.C. makes imperative that the US withdraw from that city with the greatest possible speed. Rich B
