Closing Scene from The Blues BrothersLabor Day weekend signals the end to yet another Summer Shooting Season. Since the season’s kick off on Friday, May 26th, we’ve tallied 229 homicides plus another 1,034 shot & wounded (~10% less than last summer). We’ll look to add to those totals given the tendency for this particular weekend to be really stupid.
