January Wrap-up

Posted on February 1, 2017

Carnac the Magnificent Last January set the tone for 2016 and this January just wrapped up singing the same tune. Buckle up. It’s going to be a long year.

January 2017: 55 killed, 258 wounded
January 2016: 57 killed, 246 wounded
January 2015: 32 killed, 120 wounded
January 2014: 24 killed, 82 wounded

A breakdown of the month’s idiocy shows:

  • 53 shot & killed
  • 2 stabbed
  • 2 fatal police shootings
  • All 31 days tallied at least 2+ shot
  • 4 days were homicide-free. Success!
  • 48 in serious or critical condition
  • 53 males killed vs 2 females
  • 67 teenagers shot, 9 killed
  • 19 grazed
  • 2 selfies
  • 10 #ShotInTheAss

Looking ahead, February is not only the shortest month of the year but also the quietest. Still, last February managed to put up 46 homicides with an additional 156 shot and wounded. Since the SS Shitshow seems to be stuck at full flank, we’re looking for 50 homicides (~7 St. Valentine’s Day Massacres) plus another 175 shot and wounded.
