Milwaukee's 3rd-Place Increase in % Homicides

2015 was quite a year for Milwaukee.  The city managed to come in 3rd in the country in the % increase of homicides!!

...While Baltimore had the largest increase in absolute numbers, it had the fourth-largest percentage increase.

Homicides in Baltimore jumped by 58.5 percent last year. Cleveland saw a 90.5 percent increase to lead the nation. Nashville, Tenn., was second with 82.9 percent; Milwaukee was third with 72.6 percent.

Washington finished just behind Baltimore, with a 54.3 percent increase....

Chicago didn't make the Top Five.  But there's always next year, as the Cub fans say.
