Rah, I'm glad you're keeping track of the homicides in San Francisco. Keep up the good work. Unfortunately, San Franciscans cant rely on the Chronicle to accurately report crime in this city. Sad but true.

I have just compared your data with SF Chronicle. You have 5 more homicides than they do. No surprise-- everyone knows that the Chron is trying to pretend that SF is still a first-world city. What would be helpful if you could post links (URL's) to the articles on the 5 missing homicides, so that there is PROOF that SF Chron is whitewashing this.
