Murder Rate still up in SF

There have been 68 murders in San Francisco as of August 9th. In addition, there have been 3 justifiable homicides (one a self defense shooting, two more were police shootings), and at least a few "suspicious" deaths. The murder total is up from 52 at the same time last year, a 24% increase. It's also around 30% higher than the total for the same time in 2005

Meanwhile, elsewhere in the Bay Area:

Oakland is at 79 murders, possibly 80 now, with a spate of 8 murders between August 2nd and 6th. It's at exactly the same number now as it was for the same time last year.

San Jose is at 20, I believe.
