It's the end of September, but Tulsa has already surpassed last year's homicide numbers.

Last Friday's shooting brought the number of cases to 48 for the year. That's compared to 46 in 2012.

The record number of homicides in one year in Tulsa is 71 in 2009.

Tulsa Police tell us they have no idea what's behind the higher numbers this year.

Either way, keep letting them kill each other. It is unfortunate when innocent people get dragged into the mix, but for the most part it is just the normal for the criminals. They kill each other and thin out the herd. It's always the same story though when covered by the news stations. The deceased was a rising star, doing nothing wrong but being in the wrong place at the wrong time etc. etc. etc., Yet you don't see these same antic's going on in South Tulsa or B.A. or Jenks. You see it in East Tulsa where the neighbor hoods are turning into Illegal Immigrant overrun, over stuffed houses and apartments. Then there is North Tulsa where you can't even have a grocery store open more then 24 hours before it is getting robbed. Yet you whine and cry when no businesses want to open up shop in your area and you cry foul and racism. Then there is West Tulsa, same story as the rest. You wonder why you pay higher prices in South Tulsa, why it cost's so much more to live in area's like B.A., Bixby, Jenks and South Tulsa, it's because we work, we value our possessions and our safety. We choose to work, we choose to pay higher prices for security and freedom. Yes there are issues all over but you can see the truth when you look at the demographic of the area you live in.

Do these numbers include the increase of police shootings of citizens? We never hear of them afterward because they never go to trial.
