Summer Lovin’

Posted on September 9, 2015

Grease: Summer Lovin'Another summer has come and gone, so now it’s time to take a look back at the summer that was.

Summer kicked off with a foreshadowing tone when the Memorial Day weekend nearly doubled 2014’s weekend total with 12 homicides and 45 wounded. Shortly thereafter, Uptown’s favorite jagoff and bullet magnet, Young Pappy, succumbed to a severe case of lead poisoning. May ended with a 19% increase in shootings, yet crime was down.

June started with a viral video of a west side Roman candle fight that was copied dozens of times as other local ‘yutes’ tried to hop on the viral bandwagon. Shortly thereafter Spike Lee announced “Chiraq” in which some aldercreatures took more offense to than the daily violence found in their wards. The Blackhawks clinched another Cup and stupidity filled the streets of Wrigleyville, again. As June wrapped up with 49 dead and 244 wounded, the powers that be were pre-shitting bricks ahead of summer’s main event, the July 4th weekend… and crime was down.

The Shitshow of the Year started off slowly. So slowly that many thought we get through the weekend with nothing but a scratch. Then on the evening of July 4th, the wheels came off and all hell broke loose. In just nine hours, 33 people were shot leaving 6 dead. Since the weekend was slightly less stupid than previous years, crime was down.

As early July was pacing for a 60 homicide tally, a 13 month old boy was run over by a fleeing honor student. Said honor student allegedly shot an apparently semi-famous honor student known as Capo.

A week and a half later, a mass shooting at a Charleston SC church gave us a bunch of nonsense over a flag, yet similar body counts continued to be ignored. Narrative.

July’s 58 homicides were goosed by the the Chatham Four, yet the CPD still only counts one of the four as a homicide, so therefore crime was down.

August kicked off with the annual Shootapalooza weekend. The one year anniversary of Ferguson MO meant 496 homicides within the previous year were all but ignored. Narrative. While some real life honor students decided prison was better than college, a CCW permit holder ventilated a disadvantage youth who was looking to permanently borrow his stuff. August wrapped up with 21% jump shootings and an on air shooting that furthered the narrative but left the obvious ignored.

On the same day Rahm announces a massive tax increase, September sees one of the deadliest days in over a decade – 9 homicides. When all was said and done, we tallied 206 homicides and an additional 1002 shot and wounded. That translates into a dismal summer-over-summer increase of 32% and 18% respectively. But in case you haven’t heard, crime is down 30%.

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.

    The people who proclaim crime is down have their heads in their asses. The same folks who are into the p.c crap. The hippie movement was child’s play compared to today’s b.s.

    It’s also worth noting that uptown has had the most homicides in almost two decades and yet the alderman says crime is down.

    With all that said, I’d rather a chicago summer than a chicago winter anytime. Nothing beats chicago in the summertime. Could do with out all the murders, but it is what it is.

    Just to let you know out here in the weat we dont hear a peep about your murders….. Well except police killing disadvantaged youth! But hey you’s still got a long way to go to meet per capita in my home town good old east st louis illinois that bastion of inter racial freedom whoop whoop

    Dear Moderator……I would really enjoy a chance to argue with you, but your facts just seem to get in the way. I really wish your website were obsolete.

    • Arminius September 25, 2015 at 5:55 am

      Is that you, Rahm?

  6. aa September 10, 2015 at 10:26 am

    great synopsis – literary geniusity

  7. aa September 10, 2015 at 10:39 am

    no where as brilliant as wht, not even close, but notable nonetheless – http://thepublicslate.com/2015/09/chicago-authorities-blame-lax-gun-laws-for-another-deadly-holiday-weekend/

    Dear moderator. Id like to see a similar bunch of stats for other large cities in the US…sort of like a comparison page. Can you do that?

  9. Cranky Old Dude September 10, 2015 at 1:46 pm

    “Truth is the greatest enemy of the state…” J. Goebbels is supposed to have, or not have said that. Either way, it resonates pretty loudly in these times.

  10. George September 10, 2015 at 2:01 pm

    i wanted to write something meaningful and intelligent about the murder rate in Chicago. I couldn’t think of one thing. Great crusaders of injustice where are you?

  11. Your mother September 10, 2015 at 3:10 pm

    Fuck whoever wrote this bullshit, Peace of shit.

    • William September 10, 2015 at 6:57 pm

      Don’t need to get testy just cause you can’t handle the truth.

    • Citycop September 10, 2015 at 9:01 pm

      You spelled “piece” wrong. Did you do that on purpose? Or are you a fucking retard for that too? In addition to the fact that you have no appreciation for literary talent.

      • KTK September 11, 2015 at 10:10 am

        ‘Peace’ is capitalized indicating a proper name. Like the ‘Treaty of Paris,’ the commentator is merely referring to a ‘Peace’ that is differentiated from other types of ‘Peace’ by the added descriptor, ‘of shit.’ Your mother, offsets ‘Peace of shit’ with a comma, a writing technique that reinforces or further defines or describes the preceding word, ‘bullshit.’ So, what Your mother is saying is that the bullshit he is referencing is not just any bullshit, it’s the ‘Peace of shit’ type of ‘bullshit.’ Sadly, there are no clear antecedents for ‘whoever’ and ‘this.’ Lacking specifics, the reader becomes confused and the invective ultimately fails. It is not unlike so many drive-by shootings: derivative and always poorly executed.

      Nice statement…Who are you…and what’s your little rave out about?
      Also, if you could let me know where I might find more of your intellectual and informative information, I would be happy to visit the site.
      And Peace to you, I hope you find a piece of it.

    I thought about starting a site like this for Little Rock Arkansas but the monthly totals would be

    Shot & Killed: 2
    Shot & Wounded: 5
    Total Shot: 7
    Total Homicides: 3
    Shot in the ass: 0

    Seemed like a waste of time.

      What about selfies?

  13. george September 10, 2015 at 4:04 pm

    your mother, do you advocate wanton violence? do you deal with death on a daily basis? have you seen a dead person today? bullshit? only to people like you. and you can’t recognize sarcasm when you read it. spend some money on night school and sensitivity training. it may help you in the future

    W.H. if you highlight “Your Mother” name above it comes up as a web site that doesn’t exist about “White” people being the real terrorists. How far we have come as a society when black on black violence is blamed on “WHITEY”. Serious? How did any “White” person make a “Black” person shoot and kill another “Black” person? Take a good look in the mirror and that is the problem. Remember, Abraham Lincoln was WHITE and he freed the slaves!

    • William September 10, 2015 at 6:51 pm

      Minority’s get a pass on negative behavior because it’s due to whitey’s oppression. They over react when whites commit crime because the pecker woods are privileged. Damn cracker ass crakas!

    • Kkrdent September 10, 2015 at 7:06 pm

      Abe lincoln cared nothing about freeing slaves.

      • Kkrdent September 10, 2015 at 7:08 pm

        *in the grand scheme of things, I mean.

    • Cimeco September 11, 2015 at 8:10 am

      Ol’ Abe was a Republican but virtually no Democrats knows or cares. Read Obama’s bible, ‘Rules for Radicals’, by Saul Alinsky and you know what is going on here. A famous quote is ‘never let a good crisis go to waste’ and, along with refugees, war on women, minorities, drugs, whatever, these are simply platforms to exacerbate the ‘crisises’. All part of the plan to destroy the right and the dead blacks are but merely collateral damage along the way, a ‘reasonable and acceptable’ price to pay to disarm citizens which is the real goal here.
