A terrible 2000 words

I've only just started looking at the homicide data made available by the Philadelphia Inquirer in my free time (which is hard to come by lately). I've been thinking about what sorts of statistics I could do, or what kinds of additional data sets I could merge in, but I think these simple plots already tell a terrible story about what is happening to who.

I should point out that for the plot with month on the x-axis is also missing a whole year's worth of data, because apparently in 1991 the day of a reported homicide wasn't recorded.
