Articles claim that Miami has the lowest homicide rate since 1967, with only 51 murders in 2018 and 59 in 2017. The article claims a 16 percent drop in homicides county wide.
At the same time, FDLE claims that there were 188 homicides in Miami-Dade county in 2017.
We are being told that violent crime is on the rise, but then see conflicting numbers. Are there games being played with the numbers, or am I missing something?
