Had the council not canceled all of its committee meetings through mid-September, at which point Mayor Mike Rawlings will reshuffle the deck chairs, yesterday would have been the first Public Safety Committee since June 20. I asked Dallas Police Department spokesman Senior Corporal Gerardo Monreal if he happened to have a copy of the year-to-date stats crime report that would have been presented. He tracked down a copy, which includes Sunday's four unrelated homicides (between 12:55 a.m. and 4 a.m.) and shows a small jump in homicides this year over last. When last we saw a crime report, on June 6, the number of homicides YTD was 63.
