Weekend Shitshow Wrap-up

Posted on April 21, 2014

dead easter bunnyTake a cool but pleasant Friday, add in a nice Saturday and top it off with a really nice Easter Sunday, and what do you get? The second consecutive weekend shitshow. In all, eight (8) were killed and another 37 were shot and wounded.

A breakdown of the 45 incidents shows:

  • All 8 killed were shot
  • 2 double-homicides, 1 murder-suicide
  • 4 critical, 11 serious condition
  • 38 dudes
  • 7 chicks
  • 24.3 y/o average age
  • 17 teenagers
  • 23 neighborhoods
  • 10 multi-victim incidents
  • 1 incident w/ 5 kids shot
  • 3 shot in the ass

Like we said last week, we all know #ItsNotTheWeather or the assholes pulling the trigger, it’s guns!!! McBeerNuts said so on the TV this AM (again) – “The gun violence in this city is the result of lax guns laws. Period.”

Somehow, there are vast swaths of Chicago where absolutely nothing happens, yet those same “lax guns laws” apply there as well. You people in Lincoln Park, Edison Park, Mt. Greenwood, etc… really need to step up your game.

In any event, at least #CrimeIsDown.

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.

    I got to catch Gar on TV this morning, stuttering and stammering his way through an interview, which he disputed any rise in crime (weather related or not) and nothing wrong with the way crime stats are reported (6 people gunned down at a party = 1 incident). This man is truly amazing to believe the crap he spews out of his mouth!

      Indeed. Those 5 kids shot up yesterday on Michigan Ave will count as one incident, not five people shot.

        Just goes to show you that there is actually a correlation between Yes men and lower IQ’s…

        This is the greatest and most honest site I have ever seen on the World Wide Web!

          You’ve gotta get out more. :-)

            I have lived in 6 different states and I reaffirm this is the greatest site. So go pat yourself on the back!!!

    It’s gun violence not gang violence. Because of lax gun laws, which we all know criminals follow, is the reason crime is up. Drink more koolaid please.

    Unless you’re trying to mirror the MSM, the race of victims and suspects would be salient statistical data to include. Of course, since the MSM never provide that info anymore….

      We have a race stat, which applies to homicides only. The race of the shooters and those who are shot and wounded are rarely reported. Check out our Honor Roll section for those who’ve been arrested in connection with murders this year.

        Love the “mug shot” of Angel Jara. He’s got a great smile.

        And I remember correctly, Justin Hamilton’s mother gave him up. That’s got to be a tough call for her, but she’s a role model for upstanding citizens.

    Hey folks, I know you liked my 1987 movie “The Untouchables”. I’m working on a new project that will focus on Chicago crime in today’s times. I plan to title it “The Unbelievables”. Joe Pesci has agreed to be Mayor Emmanuel and I’m trying to get Mike Ditka to play Commissioner McCarthy. Pesci is short and has played “Godfather” type roles before and can swear almost as well as our Mayor, so he’s a lock. Ditka…well, he likes his “sauce” and I can’t seem to get a straight answer from him. Gosh – in that light, he sounds PERFECT for that role. Let me get back to you, I gotta make a phone call.

    Just found your site on Twitchy. Awesome work, brother. A tip o’ the cap to you, and many thanks!

      Awesome! Thank you. That Twitchy post was unexpected.
