The wettest and cloudiest June on record didn’t do much to stop the stupidity. June, like most of 2015, continues to churn and burn at a quicker pace than the last two years, yet somehow crime is still down.
Our prediction was “dead” on for homicides, but a bit low on the wounded side: … we’ll predict a total of 46 (+/-4) homicides plus another 290 (+/-10) shot and wounded. Close enough.
Final Stupidity Tally: 50 killed, 244 wounded
Last June’s Tally: 39 dead, 247 wounded
A breakdown of the month’s idiocy shows:
- 44 shot & killed
- 4 stabbed
- 2 killed via other means
- 5 ongoing “death investigations”
- 1 police-involved shooting
- 44 in serious or critical condition
- 46 males killed, 4 females
- 68 teenagers shot, 9 killed
- 14 grazed
- 3 selfies
- 16 #ShotInTheAss
Looking ahead to July, the stupidity knob will be cranked up to 11. Last July tallied 46 homicides and 277 shot and wounded. However, since we have yet to experience any sort of hot & humid weather this year and assuming it does hit, watch out… therefore we’ll predict a total of 50 (+/-4) homicides plus another 300 (+/-10) shot and wounded.
