    Wow, considering there were highs in the low 30”s for Sat and Sun, those are some really persistent honor students. Imagine if they could harness that drive toward something other than shooting each other.

    Did they arrest anyone for the murder of “Thug Life D” (David Morgan) yet?

      Nope. Nothing reported as such as of today.

    2 doubles and a triple put ’em over the 2,300 mark.

    398 murders as of Sunday afternoon. So you’re saying the sociopaths already passed last year’s murder total?

    • W.H.Thompson November 16, 2014 at 4:31 pm

      We’ve got a bit to go until that happens. 2013 currently stands at 455 – http://heyjackass.com/category/2013/. We’ve been tracking behind 2013 all year in homicides, but way ahead in people shot.

        The Sun Times reported 415. Why such a difference in numbers?
        http://chicago.cbslocal.com/2014/01/01/police-chicago-reports-415-murders-in-2013-lowest-since-1965/

        • W.H.Thompson November 16, 2014 at 5:54 pm

          415 is the official CPD metric – those are cases where they’ve logged murder charges against someone. They don’t count self-defense, officer involved or anything outside of their jurisdiction – like highways.

          The story also says “According to the Cook County Medical Examiner’s office, 446 homicides took place in Chicago in 2013” – which is what we base our numbers on and includes the above. Plus there were a few we added that in light of the Chicago Magazine expose. Finally we’ll count anyone who was shot/beat/stabbed in 2013 but passes in 2014+ towards 2013.

            Thanks. Unfortunately this year is pretty high too, even after the extra winter weather through March.

  6. john cass November 16, 2014 at 6:30 pm

    Dang! Not a single one shot in the ass!

  7. Ben Lujan November 16, 2014 at 6:57 pm

    As of this writing, one more to go before 400 . . .

  8. glennc November 16, 2014 at 7:39 pm

    This is crazy, factor in the wind chill and these students are brave I guess.

  9. Anonymous November 16, 2014 at 8:27 pm

    400. That’s disgusting and embarrassing. Anyone know what LA and NYC have?

  10. James manos November 17, 2014 at 10:22 am

    Last year NYC reported 333 murders
    I live here and no-one with 2 living brain cells believes that number.
    When they agree to the final ( bogus) number I’ll report back

  11. a November 17, 2014 at 6:34 pm

    shot clock – like

  12. Fr. Marquette November 17, 2014 at 6:49 pm

    With the upcoming ruling from Ferguson out the death tally will rise as some of the honor roll students will see this as an avenue of approach to killing more Whitey McCrackers. Obviously a few Blackie O’Browns will be caught in the crossfire….shameful that unless that police is lynched thug life USA will have a banner day to kill….with the US president fanning the flames as well

    On the “Year to Date” totals, what’s the difference between “Shot & Wounded” and “Total Shot?”
    In other words, aren’t they the same thing?

  14. Jonathan Holmes Gruber November 18, 2014 at 9:39 am

    A+B=C
    Year To Date Totals
    A. Shot & Killed: 337
    B. Shot & Wounded: 1977
    C. Total Shot: 2314

  15. Johnny g March 15, 2015 at 11:39 pm
