And 2 of the 2017 57 were murders that occurred in previous years but classified as murders in 2017, so basically a tie.

Better than when we were going into triple digits, but between that time and this time I recall a 29 murder year. Big numbers or small numbers, it stinks for the dead and those who love them.
