As of 3/23, Minneapolis has 2 homicides. It has been a particularly mild and dry winter. So, we can't say it's the cold keeping the numbers down.

Last year, we ended with 49. But, we only had 2 by 3/23 last year. So, we will see.

These were the intentional homicide rates in various parts of France in 2014 according to the French Ministry of Interior (these figures include intentional assault/battery/fight which led to death).

Intentional homicide rates in 2014 (per 100,000 people):
- Rhône (Lyon metro area): 1.1 (up from 0.8 in 2013)
METROPOLITAN FRANCE: 1.2 (stable)
- Paris Region: 1.3 (up from 1.2 in 2013) / the Paris Region, with 12 million inhabitants, had only 153 murders in 2014
- La Réunion: 1.3 (down from 2.3 in 2013)
- Mayotte: 1.3 (up from 0.9 in 2013)
- Haute-Garonne (Toulouse metro area): 1.6 (up from 0.8 in 2013!)
- Alpes-Maritimes (Nice, Cannes, French Riviera): 2.5 (down from 2.9 in 2013)
- Bouches-du-Rhône (Marseille metro area): 2.8 (down from 3.0 in 2013)
- French Polynesia: 4.1 (up from 1.9 in 2010)
- New Caledonia: 4.1 (down from 6.4 in 2013)
- Corsica: 4.3 (down from 8.6 in 2011)
- Guadeloupe: 6.0 (down from 9.0 in 2013)
- Martinique: 6.6 (up from 4.2 in 2013)
- French Guiana: 11.1 (down from 18.6 in 2012)
- St Martin: 22.6 (down from 30.5 in 2011)

In 2015, due to the terror attacks of January and November, the intentional homicide rate of the Paris Region almost doubled compared to 2014 (final figures not yet available). The intentional homicide rate of Metropolitan France rose from 1.2 in 2014 to 1.4 in 2015 due to these same attacks.

Preliminary figures for Guadeloupe show that the intentional homicide rate exploded there in 2015, going from 6.0 in 2014 to 12.0 in 2015. Guadeloupe is a transit point on the drug routes between South America and North America/Europe, arms are introduced illegally from Latin America, the long coastline is largely unguarded by the French authorities, and the depressed economic situation all make an explosive cocktail. The population of Guadeloupe has been shrinking every year since 2011, as the Guadeloupean youth is fleeing this beautiful archipelago to resettle in Metropolitan France, particularly in the Paris Region.

In French Guiana the intentional homicide rate also rebounded to about 15/100,000 in 2015, but this is largely a garimpeiros problem in the interior, and not a drug issue. The French Guianese economy is booming, unlike the Guadeloupean economy. In St Martin, the intentional homicide rate was reduced further in 2015, reaching about 17/100,000.

Austin is at 3 homicides for 2016 after a man died in the hospital after being shoved by another man on 6th Street in downtown. The man who pushed him said he believed the man had groped his wife, so he shoved him. The man fell and hit his head and died 4 days later in the hospital from a brain injury.

So here's the thing. They're saying this is the 3rd homicide of the year, but they're charging the man with a manslaughter charge. Shouldn't it be a murder charge if it's considered a homicide? Should this be considered a true murder case?

Groping in Sixth Street bar leads to Austin’s 3rd homicide of 2016 - 3/19

Yes, a sad and stupid story. It has to do with intent and lack of premeditation.

It is not negligent homicide, so it counts as a murder or non-negligent homicide and thus is counted in the homicide rate per FBI definition.

Toronto ends March with 21, so if the unpropitious trend continues, we will have more than usual. There were 10 in January, 5 in February, and 6 in March.
