So far in 2009, lives have been cut short with apparent geographic indifference. Pomona, Claremont, Upland, and Rancho Cucamonga each saw a death by unnatural causes in the month of January. If the current pattern holds, residents in the little, big city of Pomona may want to stay in bed on March 1st given the two homicides for 2009 have occurred in the early hours of Jan 1st and Feb 1st.
I'll be updating the map throughout the month as homicides are reported, so don't be confused if the dates leap into February. Here's to hoping the rest of February will be homicide free.
