Mayor Emanuel's 'Chicago Values': Chicago, Deadliest Global City

-By Warner Todd Huston

Well, thank goodness for Rahm Emanuel's "Chicago values," eh? NBC Chicago is now reporting that it is more dangerous to live in Chicago than any other great city of the world.

Isn't it wonderful that Rahm Emanuel came from Washington to save the city?

As the TV station reports it, Chicago is worse than even New York… even worse than MEXICO CITY, fer cripes sakes … in the number of murders we have here.

As measured in murders per 100,000 citizens, here is the list with worst (Chicago) listed first:

  • Chicago 19.4
  • Sao Paulo 15.6
  • Moscow 9.6
  • Mexico City 8.0
  • Los Angeles 7.5
  • New York 6.0
  • Paris 4.4
  • Amsterdam 1.8
  • Toronto 1.7
  • London 1.4
  • Sydney 1.0
  • Berlin 1.0
  • Hong Kong 0.6
  • Tokyo 0.5
  • Singapore 0.4

Thanks, Rahm!
