September Wrap-up

Posted on October 3, 2017

Carnac the Magnificent With the current trend running around 10% below last year’s Shitshow-0-Rahm-a, our September forecast of 62 homicides with an additional 275 wounded was much closer to the mark than Queen Sugar’s estimated pop tax haul.

September 2017: 58 killed, 273 wounded
September 2016: 69 killed, 301 wounded
September 2015: 63 killed, 303 wounded
September 2014: 46 killed, 211 wounded

A breakdown of the month’s idiocy shows:

  • All 58 shot & killed
  • 1 fatal police shooting
  • 1 self defense homicide
  • 4 homicide-linked arrests
  • Averaged 11 people shot per day
  • 4 days were homicide-free
  • 5 death investigations
  • 67 in serious or critical condition
  • 50 males killed vs 8 females
  • 53 teenagers shot, 5 killed
  • 12 grazed
  • 3 selfies
  • 20 #ShotInTheAss

Prior to last year, now would typically be the time of year when the stupidity becomes slightly less so, yet we’re not confident that’ll be the case. Last October behaved like August by posting 82 homicides with an additional 348 catching lead. The same amount of stupid is unlikely but another 60 homicides plus another 275 wounded is probable with the year end body count slogging towards 700+.
