Good for you, Cleveland. You're killing fewer people this year than at any point in the last decade and possibly the last half century. Congratulations for keeping the sanity.

According to the Plain Dealer, there have been just 66 homicides to date in the 2010 calendar year, the lowest since 2000. The Cleveland police are taking full credit for this, naturally, bragging that they're keeping the city safe despite having 381 fewer officers on the streets than at the dawn of the aughts. It's a good PR moment and one they probably couldn't pass up, we suppose.
