The City of Philadelphia has recorded 100 murders in less than 100 days for the second time in as many years. Philadelphia’s murder rate is currently higher than it was at this time last year, which ended up being the city’s deadliest year on record.

A man who was shot and killed in West Philadelphia on Thursday night became the city’s 100th murder victim in 2022. According to CBS Philadelphia, the homicide rate is now up 8% over this time last year. A total of 562 people were killed in 2021, according to the Philadelphia Police Department. This set a new grisly record for the city, which had only recorded 500 murders one other time in the 90’s during the height of the crack epidemic.
It is not just homicide setting a torrid pace in the City Of Brotherly Love….
