    Any insight on the “wilding” episode at Navy Pier this weekend?

    • W.H.Thompson December 27, 2014 at 8:03 pm

      Typical BS –> “Large groups” of yutes terrorizing holiday revelers. A handful of battered yutes ending up at local hospitals for some taxpayer subsidized medical care, some arrests, etc… <-- Typical BS Scanner traffic was nearly a carbon copy of the events of July 3rd. The only difference was 30 degrees.

  2. Nick December 27, 2014 at 7:39 pm

    No insight into NP incident, but looks like our overachievers are working on extra credit…..and not a word from the three stooges or our favorite race baiters, Al & Jesse.

    An old Chicago favorite….the Twelve Dead of Christmas.

  5. Chiraq or Afcago? December 28, 2014 at 3:40 pm

    Chicago, you did it – 2,600 shootings in a single calendar year. Incredibly difficult gun laws aside, you found a way into the record books. And the only way the homicide numbers haven’t risen is due to the speed of the first responders and the skills of the emergency room medical teams – and the Navy corpsmen at Stroger Hospital who have advanced combat medical experience from their time in Afghanistan. Yeah, it’s true, read up on it… http://bigstory.ap.org/article/chicago-hospital-trains-navy-doctors-battle

    Can you make it to 2,700 by midnight the 31st? From all recent stats, it’s possible! #yeswecan

    I hope the National Guard is taking drill time with training for urban peace keeping activities…hopefully Governor-elect Rauner won’t put up with this like Ryan, Blago, and Quinn did for the last ten years. But… #crimeisdown and nobody likes to hear bad news, so just ignore the problem…it will die off eventually. Ask the Daily Beast: http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2014/07/09/send-the-national-guard-to-chiraq.html

    Predictions for 2015 anyone? Fr. Marquette? Johan?

    Only 3 more days to surpass last years homicide totals. Come on all you honor students you can do it.

  7. john December 28, 2014 at 6:27 pm

    Didn’t they already surpass it, Dan?

  8. Sparky December 28, 2014 at 7:07 pm

    New Year’s Eve ought to be a doozy!!

  9. thomas December 28, 2014 at 7:15 pm

    New Years Eve might do it. 455 at least. Maybe 460. Go team honor students!

  10. Dan December 29, 2014 at 12:22 am

    @John
    I thought they were still short 2-3.

  11. KTK December 29, 2014 at 11:15 am

    I was watching the video and felt that many of the young men were lifting the chairs improperly. Perhaps OSHA or another city agency could provide some training on how to better use one’s legs and not rely so much on one’s back. How about city-provided safety goggles? I’m afraid someone swinging a chair will eventually hurt themselves and then be unable to work and provide for their family.

  12. john cass December 29, 2014 at 11:42 am

    Can we please have someone shot in the ass in this final record-setting week? Or…at least if they’re shot in the junk, there would be a strong possibility they could no longer reproduce more feral tissue…

  13. frog December 29, 2014 at 2:30 pm

    We need a cost statistic for each hospital that gets one of the wounded/dead honor children after a cap goes off. Who pays for all these luxury stays at the hospital where the wounded suddenly lose the ability to speak when the detectives show up to ax questions?

    • Sparky December 29, 2014 at 8:43 pm

      Well, you know that they don’t have any Health insurance, right??

      So who picks up the tab?? The taxPAYERS do. Those who pay sales taxes within the city, those who pay fines, those who pay property taxes, that’s who.

      Those who pay NOTHING, who get food stamps, oblamaphones, heating assistance, housing assistance, you don’t actually think that THEY pay for any of this stuff, do you?

  14. Shirley December 29, 2014 at 8:05 pm

    Insane… I get disgusted every time I hear officials talking about a decrease in crime… even more disgusted when they fudge their statistics to make the city seem safer (on paper).

    Btw, the guy shot at 1500 E 73rd Pl, South Shore, M/25 passed away the next day… Yet another fatality.

  15. Sparky December 29, 2014 at 8:40 pm

    Outstanding figures. Looks like this year could be #2 of the “best” in the last 6 years.

    Many kudos to the mayor and his administration for the reforms and improvements that have been made over the past few years in Chicago. New Year’s Eve should be outstanding!!

  16. Sparky December 29, 2014 at 8:45 pm

    Maybe the Navy Seals should take over security at the Navy Pier. I would bet that the “problems” would subside considerably in short order.

  17. Joe January 4, 2015 at 10:39 am

    Oh no, watch out! Hands up! Don’t shoot! The police are here to racially profile us again and we didn’t even do nothing. Wake up America police are not the problem. Self entitled, don’t have to work, get everything for free, do whatever I want wherever I want, no morals, shit heads are……. Reasons like this why I avoid coming into the city with my family.
