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.

    Still two full days left in the weekend and we’ve tied last year’s shootings. But #crimeisdown

    Murders have been nice and low this week till this hellish day.
    Also, the 64th street murder happened in KGB territory (Krazy Getdown Boys). Maybe the Almighty Ambrose who claim 63rd and California paid them a visit. They are at war.

  3. Nick November 29, 2014 at 6:47 am

    Wow! What a shame….I remain totally mystified by the main stream media’s apparent outrage and perceived Ferguson injustice especially when looking through the prism of the Chi-town kill tempo.

    Al & Jesse, where are you?

    To the folks in the most desperate neighborhoods, continuing to line up behind folks like the 3 stooges will only result in more of the same. As long as you tie your future to the Dems you’ve goy a permanent seat on the pain train. Happy holidays!

    Cold weather usually stemmed the honor students lead projectiles science projects…however there are a couple of factors in play that did not exist previously. One we have men in their fifties who are thugs and still producing babies on EBT. ..two the destruction of the projects and section 8 housing has spread the gang population to areas far and wide…more territory to claim….three no one ever says no to o the thugs today…in fact they are encouraged to be thugs to yell at police and to be lazy…four our schools teach nothing…five at least a couple commandments might come in handy but all are banned

      Six – Advanced medical care is saving a lot of lives where in the past they would have past.

      Seven – Cell phones – people are able to call 911 almost instantly and CPD/CFD/EMS usually arrive within minutes.

        7.1 social media allowing for more organized flash dancing.

    Haha you guys rock!

    Love the new Shot Clock & Clearance Rate additions!!!

    Any insight if the Nordstroms Mag-Mile shooting was by a concealed carry permit holder??

    Keep up the excellent work!!!!!!!

    Seasons Greetings & Happy New Year!

    • W.H.Thompson November 29, 2014 at 11:26 am

      Thank Dane. Also be sure to check out our new Victim/Attacker matrix on the Honor Roll page.

      The latest from the Trib is “According to court records, the gunman had petitioned to have a temporary restraining order issued against the woman for stalking. That petition was denied by a Cook County judge last April, court records show.

      No word on a CCW permit or a FOID card. Either way, we’re pretty sure that mall has one of those “no guns” stickers on the front door. If so, this whole episode is an impossibility to begin with.

    Pumpkin pie and turkey glaze,
    Make for a happy Thanksgiving daze,
    Football games and holiday cheer,
    With cousins we see once a year,

    But in the distance, gunshots crackle,
    As Ambrose and KGB-ers battle,
    A drive-by at Quicky’s corner mart,
    Leaves 2 dead and 4 with bleeding parts,

    Then off to the mall for some Christmas shopping,
    Where stores are shuttered, for cops aren’t stopping,
    The communist protests, for Lil’ Mike Brown,
    That radicals hope will shut Thanksgiving down,

    But in spite of the anti-American mood,
    We enjoy our days of thanks and food,
    And pray that the next administration,
    Doesn’t actively try to destroy this nation.

    You have the decedent at 55 Grand as the F, according to the article it was the M.

    looks like guiliani is on target once again – http://news.yahoo.com/giuliani-michael-brown-death-never-gone-grand-jury-173800728.html

    looks like their getting better aim.. btw do you have this one listed?

    A man who was wounded when a bullet pierced a bedroom window and struck him in the head died Thanksgiving night, officials said Sunday.

    Someone opened fire about 10:50 p.m. Wednesday outside a frame house in the 2100 block of West Garfield Boulevard in the city’s Back of the Yards neighborhood,

    • W.H.Thompson November 30, 2014 at 10:04 pm

      Hi Adam – Sounds like you lifted that from the Trib’s story. They have the wrong day – he was shot Tuesday night, not Wednesday and passed on Thanksgiving. We count homicides towards the day and time of the incident, not at the time of passing. It has been applied towards November’s tally, but not the weekend’s.

      • Adam November 30, 2014 at 11:16 pm

        thanks for the reply, i actually read it on dnainfo first, but copied it from the tribune.. dnainfo has the same info as the tribune

  10. Parker December 1, 2014 at 6:20 am

    Very noticeable palpable lack of gibberish, er, explanation of these obvious aberrations from SuperMac & Co over the weekend…..maybe the city stats-guys are just going to give our All-Stars a pass for the HoliDaze?

    yes, the u.s. has a major problem, but it certainly isn’t the cops in ferguson, mo or elsewhere for that matter. “America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better. I therefore intend to oppose the effort to increase America’s debt limit.” — Sen. Barack Obama, March 16, 2006. read this – http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2014-12-01/total-us-debt-rises-over-18-trillion

    chicago – 2014 is coldest year since 1904 – http://chicago.cbslocal.com/2014/12/03/2014-chicago-has-been-coldest-in-110-years/

  15. Fr. Marquette December 3, 2014 at 3:16 pm

    I do not think that the colder temperatures will decrease the proclivity of the honor student’s lead projects. The main reason is that a number of the former oxygen breathing/now non-breathing students were gangbangers, thugs, and participated in extracurricular activities with other like minded gangbangers, thugs and fellow students. The arrest rate of the murderers of these alumni is rather low, so there are still potential targets available for retribution. The rate the last three years has been consistently low, while the more lead less dead numbers are rising. I predict a hearty December death rate of 40, with a shot number nearing 230, with a couple of ho, ho, ho’s thrown in
