The Weekend’s Stupidity

Posted on December 20, 2014

The whole #CrimeIsDown meme takes a serious hit when the mayor’s son gets beaten and robbed steps from his own home where at least two CPD cars are stationed 24/7. Therefore, we wouldn’t be surprised if this strong-arm robbery gets downgraded to theft, lost property or just goes away completely.

    The teenage son of Mayor Rahm Emanuel was the victim of a robbery outside the mayor’s Lakeview home. The Sun Times reports that Zach Emanuel went out to make a phone call when he was jumped by two men who stole the teen’s cell phone.

    Will we see 2,600 shootings in the City of Chicago this year? #yeswecan #crimeisdown

    • Wolf December 20, 2014 at 7:13 pm

      Odds are very good Chicago will have 2600 shootings. There are 11 days left in the year,12 if you count today. Chicago has averaged 7 shootings per day. The goal of 2600 is certainly attainable.

    • W.H.Thompson December 20, 2014 at 8:10 pm

      2,600 (+/- 10) people shot. 450 (+/- 5) homicides.

    • Anonymous December 20, 2014 at 8:56 pm

      You some kind of sociopath?
      I thought shootings were a bad thing.

      • Parker December 22, 2014 at 7:31 am

        They are a bad thing. But they don’t count unless someone important is shot or mugged. Ferguson, one guy shot and the whole town riots. Outside of a few scattered gatherings, have you seen any coherent action in the action-packed neighborhoods of Chicago indicating anyone actually gives a damn? Where’s Jesse? Where’s Al?

  5. krazeeloon December 21, 2014 at 9:58 am

    Mr Anonymous moron, not only did no one say anything about the shootings being a good thing, if you read through other comments you will see no one here is happy about this. We are however, sick and tired of the media ignoring the problem and the liars that call themselves politicians using the violence to increase their own power. Useful idiots like you provide them their base.

    • James manos December 21, 2014 at 10:50 am

      Stop making sense!

      • krazeeloon December 21, 2014 at 11:01 am

        Sorry, I”ll have to smoke some of Mr Anonymous’ weed so I don’t notice the idiocy rampaging over this country.

    • Anonymous December 21, 2014 at 1:59 pm

      Look again.
      He put a “yes we can” after his comment. Unlike you, I can detect satire.
      Plus look at this site’s bloodlust. Who keeps a “Shot in the ass o meter.”
      I’ll tell you: a bitter, middle aged conservative cracker with a fetish for dead black kids…
      But that pussy W H Thompson isn’t as dumb as his Teabilly audience. The bitch didn’t use his name to register the site.
      Now that you’re all fired up to reply, don’t. I’m gone for good.
      The rest of you yokels keep checking in for a higher body count between your Wal-Mart frozen pizzas and insulin shots.

        Brilliant idiocy. Satire, or sarcasm? Whining because someone doesn’t want to be traceable to miscreants like yourself?

        And as to dead black kids, there’s plenty of them whether one acknowledges their existence (as this site does) or not.

        But I think I understand you (and I’m pretty sure you’ll be back): You’re the kind of person who will quote ilk such as Dallaire and des Forges chapter and verse (notwithstanding that they have the deaths of about 12 million blacks on their hands—suing Barayagwiza when he came to beg for peacekeepers to keep your psychopaths of the RPF at bay; ferrying arms to Kagame after he depopulated Byumba prefecture of 800k people; etc.). You voted Clinton, Gore, Kerry and Obama, didn’t you?

      • W.H.Thompson December 21, 2014 at 5:39 pm

        Thanks for the insult Tammy. You’ve perfectly illustrated the need for anonymity. There’s a reason why we’ve declined every request for media interviews – people find it easier to attack the messenger than than message. Although, the colorful assumptions on who we are almost t-shirt worthy.

        It’s too bad you’re no longer welcome around here because us diabetes-riddled, retarded hillbillies could have really learned from your nuanced and enlightened views on why a 50 year and ongoing, massive wealth transfer from the Chicago/Illinois taxpayer to hospitals, lawyers, prisons, etc… via the low-IQ gangbanger and their neighborhood enablers is a good thing for all of us.

        Now that you’re all fired up, don’t reply, because you are done for good.

        Merry Christmas Tammy.

    Thoughts of Chairman Rahm: “…I gotta get out of this city. It ain’t safe for my family. But – but – but – wait a minute – I’m the mayor of this city.”

    • DMS December 21, 2014 at 7:36 pm

      Notice how all the News Stories mentioned a “Long Planned Vacation” ?

  7. Johan Meyer December 21, 2014 at 5:17 pm

    OK, now that the final death toll is becoming clearer, I’d like to make a few observations. I previously noted that within a month, especially with relatively consistent temperatures, the daily death and shooting toll is approximately consistent with Poisson statistics. Nevertheless, the year-end statistics are manifestly non-Poissonian (in fact almost no variance other than 2012, versus an expected variation of 22 murders under Poissonian statistics), with variance coming mainly from temperatures (2012 had a very warm spring according to what I could find). Thus I stand corrected on that count; I will use Poisson statistics for small changes though.

    A second matter is the lead clean-up starting in 1992, with robberies beginning to fall in 2009 (cannot blame the resident New Yorker for that :P ), as expected (17 years delay for robberies). I’m going to go against the trend here, and say that the New Yorker probably didn’t cook the robbery books, as he didn’t need to to get robberies down. Murder suffers a 23 year delay, so six years after robberies begin to shift, murders should begin to shift, i.e. the drop should become apparent around 2015.

    Robberies dropped by about 1/15 in 2009 (I used only November data, so I speak under correction), so on the assumption that the age distribution of murders and robberies are the same (but shifted by six years), I’m going to predict 420 murders for 2015, or 30 down; assuming the 30 is Poissonian, I’m going to say +/-6 i.e. ~sqrt(30), and about 380 for 2016 (~10% drop) +/- 8. Then a decade should follow in which murder drops about 15% per year, followed by about a decade of little drop before the current clean-up efforts (window replacements) start having their effects.

    Good, now you guys have something to which to hold me… And I’ll shut up about lead paint for a year :)

    Love this site! Extremely informative! Simply a reality check

    What about shot in the junk on those shot please use **^ for Shot in the junk!

  10. Mayberry RFD December 21, 2014 at 9:27 pm

    Classic thread!

    Always fascinated at the feral humans who troll through the site.

    Hey you Crackers! You are the problem….err, maybe except for your money that I need you to give to the 3 Stooges, who promise someday to fix this.

    For Tammy: http//www.youtube.com/watch?v=WtGrpbzAl

    if you only knew what I did for 24 months to battle this crisis…

    Johan – dude, don’t give up on the lead subject yet! However, I suggest doing some detailed analysis on cannibis consumption and supply/demand inherent in Chitown. I think the lead stats will be overshadowed by the cannibis stats.

  12. Mayberry RFD December 22, 2014 at 3:16 pm

    Absolutely. In addition to the lead analysis, we need some weed research.

    Johan, we need you to get your freak on with these stats.

    Once complete, you could then provide periodic updates. I am envisioning a podcast.

  13. thomas December 22, 2014 at 8:16 pm

    Will we hit 450 for the year? Or will we have peace on earth, good will towards man? Maybe a massive snow storm or polar vortex will hit and curb the activity.
    Glad Tammy’s gone for good cause her hillbilly comments were starting to annoy me.

  14. Chiraq or Afcago? December 23, 2014 at 9:58 am

    Another one for Tammy…over thirteen years of war in Afghanistan, the average yearly number of US servicemen/women shot (wounded and KIA) was 1,530. Afghanistan has been called one of the most dangerous places on earth. Afghanistan is 251,825 square miles in area. Chicago is 234 square miles. So let’s see…in the ‘Stan, that’s one shooting per 164 square miles. In Afcago, that’s one shooting per 0.09 square miles or 11 shootings per mile.

    And again, Afghanistan is widely considered one of the most dangerous places on earth…well behind Chicago, m’am.

    I urge you to get educated on the issue and help contribute to solving the problems instead of throwing rocks at old diabetic white guys as you waxed so eloquently. Go ask where the Rainbow Coalition is. Go ask where the NAACP is. I have called out our brothers and sisters by name before and heard nothing but crickets and Rev Al sit back and watch Ferguson burn. M’am, I was there…I saw the helicopters. I saw the violence. You see old diabetic white dudes…

    I gotta get back to work, y’all. Merry Christmas.

  15. Nick December 23, 2014 at 3:00 pm

    Great site. I check it out at least once daily. I believe its the only site where we can get the truth. The 3 stooges surely won’t or can’t level with us.

    That said, I’m looking for another completely out of touch and psychotic rant from Tammy….Tammy shows us that some people just can’t handle the truth. However, if she continues to visit this site, she just might be the newest resident of the closest sanitarium.

    It’s the season to be jolly….falalalalalala.

    Nick
