September’s 61+

Posted on October 1, 2015

Roger Maris No 61Wow. What a shitshow September ended up being. 60+ homicides makes this September the deadliest since 2002. 362 total shot is a recent record as well. A few pending “death investigations” plus a late passing or two will only add to the shittiness.

Speaking of shitty, our September prediction couldn’t have been more wrong: “…we’ll predict a total of 45 (+/-4) homicides plus another 260 (+/-10) shot and wounded.” Way outside.

Final Stupidity Tally: 62 killed, 303 wounded
Last September’s Tally: 46 dead, 211 wounded

A breakdown of the month’s idiocy shows:

  • 59 shot & killed
  • 3 killed via other means
  • 9 ongoing “death investigations”
  • 2 police-involved shootings (1 killed)
  • 48 in serious or critical condition
  • 55 males killed, 6 females
  • 81 teenagers shot, 10 killed
  • 22 grazed
  • 1 selfie
  • 21 #ShotInTheAss
  • CPD’s 11th District (west side) most active w/ 8 killed & 38 wounded

Last year, it was October when the level of stupidity started to pick up and exceed the previous year with 38 homicides and 215 shot and wounded. If October exceeds expectations like every other month so far this year, 500 homicides and 3,000 shot will be within scope. We’ll predict a total of 44 (+/-4) homicides plus another 250 (+/-10) shot and wounded.

Update: September’s 62nd homicide was a delayed call due to a burning car issue that has since been resolved.

Keep it short and to the point. Name calling and similar stupidity will be deleted. If you insist on writing several paragraphs, start your own blog.

      Reference the video: Too funny!!! Just replace the vegetation so it looks like Garfield, Ogden, Marquette , or any other Chicago Park and the difference would be????

        The difference would be that guns are illegal there so it can’t be those neighborhoods.

    Holy cow! The honor students knocked it out of the park!

    Great picture for the 61. Added bonus, the + sign sort of looks like a *, which people wanted to put next to Maris’s record because he did it in 162 games vs. Ruth’s 154.

    Question about Sept’s numbers. Is the 21 shot in the ass a record? Looks like it set the bar for 2015 YTD, but didn’t know about historically. Seems high to me.

      June 2014 had 24. With so many people getting shot in a single month there’s at least a 5-10% chance a round will make contact with the victims keister.

    This really is a great site. Thank God for the internet!

    Again, one has to be dumbfounded that this ridiculous number of homicides isn’t national news. Realistically, it’s probably closer to 66 or more with the pending “death investigations.” It’s fucking amazing how the liberal media ignores the dizzying ineptitude of the leadership in Democrat run cities in this country. Allen West for Mayor of Chicago.

    Why isn’t the “Dear Leader” as concerned about so many of his sons in Chicago as he is about the shooting in Oregon? Why?

    • tom October 2, 2015 at 10:22 am

      Because black urban lives don’t matter to BO.

    I’m hoping that 2015’s totals will exceed 2012’s. It is certainly within reach. With all of that shooting going on, it’s no wonder that ammo is so hard to find.

    I heard a bit of Chief Gary M’s statement and the numbers he used about people committing these gun crimes, and he still thinks that we need more control.
    He did say that the offenders shouldn’t be on the street, but he didn’t slam the courts.
    Keep them locked up.

    How many are innocent, how many are known criminals, etc?

  12. Juicejuice October 2, 2015 at 6:01 am

    October has a lot to live up to!

    I am going out on a limb here and getting into the office pool for 47 bagged and tagged and another 265 wounded. A terrible shooting accuracy I know but the bro’s just cannot seem to get it right. Someone mentioned before that instead of midnight basketball they need range time. I think Halloween celebrations in the hood will get out of hand and put them over the top in the numbers.

    With October having five weekends and the last one being Halloween we may pass the 60/350 mark. The weather is turning colder, not that that matters, but it will be warm enough for the lead to fly. God help us if these honor students ever start targeting outside the usual perimeter of the range. I still think Rahm should sell Austin to the Disney Corporation and they can introduce their newest sensation THUGWorld at Austin

    September was the first time in 15 years that the NFL went a calendar month *during the season* without a player arrest.

  16. Ben Lujan October 2, 2015 at 8:08 pm

    My prediction: 58 homicides for October!
