We're #1!
Too bad it's for something bad.

Washington had the most homicides per capita of any of the nation's largest cities last year, according to FBI statistics released last week.
The homicide rate -- based on the number of killings per 100,000 residents -- in Washington is more than twice that of Los Angeles and more than six times New York City's. The District's 7th Police District, which includes Anacostia, recorded 52 homicides last year, five more than in all of San Diego.

Baltimore is making a run, but I think we can fend them off.
