The Bee’s Stan Oklobdzija (at least I think that’s how the Sacto 9-1-1 blog works) checks in with an interesting side note about the city’s murder rate for 2009:
Even if someone is killed between now and March 5, this will be the longest period without a homicide in the city of Sacramento since 1999, records show.
Don’t everybody throw your hats into the air in triumph at the same time, lest a falling hat commit a homicide on its way down.
(But on a serious note, that’s pretty great news. I can’t believe there hasn’t been a homicide since New Years!)
