The Weekend’s Stupidity

Posted on December 13, 2014

Drunk SantaIt was TBOX weekend which can only mean one thing – suburban Bros and local Chads invaded Lake View and made complete and total asses of themselves. Elsewhere around town the usual stupidity was in high gear with mild (“It’s Not The Weather”) temps helping provide ample opportunities for hi-speed lead poisoning.

    Remember, , according to the powers that be, Weather doesn’t make a difference.

      Could you put up the TEMP to Shooting Graph again please?

    is it really the job of police to fix ferralness? the costs of ferral youth – (note – costs do not include medical for victims, court cost, prosecution cost, public defender cost, cost of long term prison, etc…) – http://www.justicepolicy.org/research/8477 – each ferral sbag enriches the sbag lawyers/judges. ferral youth and lawyers/judges – partners to the end.

    Come on Chicago thugs! Can we have at least one of you shot-in-the-ass this weekend?

  4. Mayberry RFD December 13, 2014 at 10:33 pm

    Feral. That is precisely the right word.

    In short – once domesticated and now living in the wild. Oftentimes posing danger to indigenous individuals.

    Feral humans….kinda like feral hogs, dogs or cats. A pack of said animals would be akin to a gang, I suppose.

    Looks as if the everyone is in the holiday spirit in Chicago, spreading all that hot lead and misery (beats hot cider and cheer).

    If you update the graphic of shootings since the Ferguson incident, Chicago will pass 1000 total shootings sometime next weekend. What a scary statistic, but then shooting around 8 a day, the numbers add up fast.

    Revrum Wright forgot to tell these folk that murder and such is wrong.

  7. Anonymous December 14, 2014 at 9:31 pm

    Lots of double shootings. It’s like the morons have been practicing at the range or something.

  8. Fr. Marquette December 14, 2014 at 10:51 pm

    There won’t be a decline in the shootings for a long time as most assailants aren’t even arrested let alone convicted. Most of these murderers and those murderered have been battling for territory in the lucrative drug trade. Once the projects housed most honor student drug emporium entrepreneurs in a tight local, and once upon a time assailants were identified….no longer the story…the students live throughout the neighbor-HOOD, and they do not talk to the police…..lots of killers with bulls eyes on their backs, as well as a “I don’t give a damn who I take with me” attitude…..lot of lead for Kwanza this year.

    Low count this weekend – could it be they haven’t yet found all the bodies?

  10. a December 15, 2014 at 6:26 pm

    can shit like this be policed? no. can shit like this be fixed by police? no. bigger question – can shit like this even be fixed by anything short of feral eradication – http://www.dnainfo.com/chicago/20141215/englewood/teen-charged-with-killing-demario-bailey-ordered-held-without-bail

    new year, yet same pr spin – as spun each year over the past 100 years

    http://www.cityofchicago.org/content/dam/city/depts/mayor/supp_info/Chi_SaferChicago_StrategicReport_final.pdf

    looks like crime stats on page 20 are underreported.

    • W.H.Thompson December 17, 2014 at 8:41 am

      Interesting how one of the only two ‘red’ neighborhoods where crime has increased dramatically is Mt. Greenwood. Suppose going from 1 crime to 2 is a 100% increase and worthy of being painted red.

      • a December 17, 2014 at 9:07 am

        if schools direct offending youth to the various “diversion” programs, does this mean those crimes never happened? stats on page 39 touch on this.

    Wow! Busy week so far. Thugs must have gotten fresh ammo for an early Christmas present. Or maybe their PO because of no presents.
