May 2017: 59 killed, 269 wounded
May 2016: 69 killed, 339 wounded
May 2015: 50 killed, 281 wounded
May 2014: 47 killed, 230 wounded

A breakdown of the month’s idiocy shows:

  • 44 shot & killed
  • 4 stabbed
  • 3 death by other means
  • 1 non-fatal police shooting
  • 1 CPD officer shot
  • 2 homicide-linked arrests
  • Averaged 10 people shot per day
  • 6 days were homicide-free
  • 5 death investigations
  • 46 in serious or critical condition
  • 43 males killed vs 7 females
  • 66 teenagers shot, 8 killed
  • 20 grazed
  • 6 selfies
  • 13 #ShotInTheAss

Our May forecast of 55 homicides and 265 shot and wounded was a bit short for one and more or less “dead on” for the other. Looking ahead, June is usually the slowest month of the Summer Shooting Season, however the past couple of years have tallied mid-1990s like numbers. While we do not expect that trend to continue, we will likely see elevated counts as the summer weather settles in. We’re forecasting 65 homicides with an additional 310 shot and wounded which would put us a good deal below last year’s tally (86/322) and well below 2016’s (78/373).

Memorial Day Weekend

Chicago Memorial Day ParadeThis weekend marks the start of the annual Summer Shooting Season. Similar to last year, we’ll expect to see around 250 homicides and an additional 1,000 shot and wounded between now and Labor Day weekend.

April Wrap-up

Carnac the Magnificent A very chilly March gave way to the 4th coldest April on record. Surprisingly enough, this resulted in a bit less lead meeting flesh, but the homicide tally still managed to average out with the assistance of six fatal stabbings.

April 2018: 40 killed, 183 wounded
April 2017: 49 killed, 270 wounded
April 2016: 40 killed, 274 wounded
April 2015: 37 killed, 204 wounded
April 2014: 37 killed, 232 wounded

A breakdown of the month’s idiocy shows:

  • 33 shot & killed
  • 6 stabbed
  • 2 non-fatal police shootings
  • 4 homicide-linked arrests
  • Averaged 7.2 people shot per day
  • 6 days were homicide-free
  • 5 death investigations
  • 42 in serious or critical condition
  • 33 males killed vs 7 females
  • 41 teenagers shot, 4 killed
  • 9 grazed
  • 4 selfies
  • 10 #ShotInTheAss

While we have yet to see our first 70 degree infused weekend Shoot-O-Rahm-a disaster, our prediction of 40 homicides and 160 shot and wounded was perfect for one side and a bit short on the other. Looking ahead, past Mays have been complete and total shitshows that typically run 50+ homicides and 250+ shot and wounded helped along with the Memorial Day weekend which runs up the score. We’re forecasting a 55 homicide May with an additional 265 shot and wounded which would put us right around last year’s tally (59/269) but well below 2016 (69/339).

The Weekend’s Shoot-o-Rahm-a

Nothing to See Here Folks... Naked GunSpring tried to make a go of it this week but once again we’re back to running in the mid to upper 40s over the weekend. The stupid shit may just have to wait for those 70s (or maybe 80s) due Monday.

Self Defense, Again

Self Defense ZoneAs Winter finally recedes and Spring arrives, the casual correlation between weather and violence will start its upward trend towards the Summer Shooting Season. Never to be left out of said correlation is the occasional assailant who unexpectedly and rather quickly assumes room temperature.

A retired Chicago police officer shot and killed a male attacker who tried to carjack him in the Bridgeport neighborhood Wednesday night, authorities said.

The retired officer was in a vehicle in the 2900 block of South Shields Avenue about 7:20 p.m. when three males went up to the car and one pointed a gun at him and demanded the vehicle, police said in a media notification.

The retired officer then shot the gunman in the upper body, police said.

Whoops.

The Weekend’s Shoot-o-Rahm-a

This is typically when we see our first summer-like weekend of the year and full contact drills begin in earnest but with this year running about 15-20˚ cooler, it’s likely to be half baked, dude.

March Wrap-up

Carnac the Magnificent A very chilly March yielded very little spring-like weather but it did help facilitate a below recent average body count. Of course, this is heralded as yet another “remarkable” drop from last year’s shitshow.

March 2018: 31 killed, 143 wounded
March 2017: 40 killed, 175 wounded
March 2016: 50 killed, 281 wounded
March 2015: 35 killed, 179 wounded
March 2014: 27 killed, 104 wounded

A breakdown of the month’s idiocy shows:

  • 25 shot & killed
  • 5 stabbed
  • 1 strangled
  • 2 non-fatal police shootings
  • 2 homicide-linked arrests
  • Averaged 5.4 people shot per day
  • 12 days were homicide-free
  • 3 death investigations
  • 32 in serious or critical condition
  • 29 males killed vs 2 females
  • 31 teenagers shot, 4 killed
  • 5 grazed
  • 3 selfies
  • 10 #ShotInTheAss

Our March guesstimate of “45 homicides with another 180 shot and wounded” was way off. Eventually, the weather will break and April is usually when we see our first 70 degree infused weekend Shoot-O-Rahm-a disaster. Due to the frosty start, we’re forecasting a 40 homicide April with an additional 160 shot and wounded which would put us well below last year’s 49/270 combo.

Self Defense, Again

Self Defense ZoneA common misconception, especially within the social media swamps, is that Chicago has “the toughest gun control laws in the nation“. Prior to 2010, that statement would certainly hold water, but nowadays it’s not the case. If so, stories like the following wouldn’t be possible.

Man Ventilates Would Be Robber:

“A man exchanged gunfire with an armed robber Wednesday evening, leaving both men wounded in the West Side West Garfield Park neighborhood.

A 57-year-old man was sitting in a home at 8:09 p.m. in the 4400 block of West Maypole when a 27-year-old man walked in and announced a robbery, according to Chicago Police.

The two men then started shooting at each other, police said. The older man was struck in the left arm and taken to Mount Sinai Hospital in good condition. The robber was shot multiple times in the chest and was in critical condition at Stroger Hospital.

The 57-year-old legally owned his gun, police said.”

“Legally owned” in this case means he has a conceal carry license.

Next up, Display of Pistol Saves Man from Beat Down

“An armed suburban man with a concealed-carry license intervened in a 3-on-1 beating and robbery in River North yesterday evening, according to a witness and police.

The victim was in the 700 block of North Clark around 8:30 p.m. when three offenders wearing white surgical masks attacked him and began taking his property, police said.

A passing motorist who saw the robbery unfold pulled over, unholstered his concealed firearm and intervened in the attack. The three offenders fled westbound on Chicago Avenue as the concealed-carry holder protected the victim, according to a witness.”

No shots fired, just whipping it out to the benefit of others.

February Wrap-up

Carnac the Magnificent The new normal spit out a now average February which will produce statements on how “remarkable” the drop was from last year’s shitshow as this and that did something that’s impossible to quantify, but it totally worked, just ignore 2015 or earlier.

February 2018: 39 killed, 149 wounded
February 2017: 51 killed, 165 wounded
February 2016: 46 killed, 156 wounded
February 2015: 20 killed, 59 wounded
February 2014: 22 killed, 54 wounded

A breakdown of the month’s idiocy shows:

  • 31 shot & killed
  • 4 stabbed
  • 2 strangled
  • 2 beaten
  • 1 non-fatal police shooting
  • 10 homicide-linked arrests
  • Averaged 5.3 people shot per day
  • 6 days were homicide-free
  • 4 death investigations
  • 23 in serious or critical condition
  • 33 males killed vs 6 females
  • 42 teenagers shot, 8 killed
  • 5 grazed
  • 3 selfies
  • 8 #ShotInTheAss

Our February guesstimate of “35 homicides with another 150 shot and wounded” was almost dead on. Per usual, the trend bottoms with February and will now see a gradual climb as the weather turns and practice begins ahead of the annual summer shooting season. We’re forecasting a 45 homicide March with an additional 180 shot and wounded which would be slightly ahead of last year’s 40/175 combination.

February bonus fact – 2/28/15, 3 years ago, was the last day Chicago saw a day without a shooting and/or a homicide.

End of Watch

Chicago Police Commander killed:

“A high-ranking Chicago police officer was shot to death at the Thompson Center on Tuesday afternoon while assisting a tactical team that was chasing a person who was acting suspiciously, police said.

Cmdr. Paul Bauer of the Near North District was shot several times a little before 2 p.m., according to police Superintendent Eddie Johnson. He said a suspect was taken into custody and a gun recovered.

Bauer was shot after a man started running from tactical officers who had tried to stop him for questioning, according to Johnson. The officers radioed a description that the commander heard, he said. Bauer, at the Thompson Center for a training session, confronted the suspect, who opened fire.”

RIP Commander Paul Bauer.

January Wrap-up

Carnac the Magnificent An average January posted average numbers with average being touted as “remarkable” because last year was such a shitshow.

January 2018: 41 killed, 173 wounded
January 2017: 57 killed, 258 wounded
January 2016: 57 killed, 256 wounded
January 2015: 32 killed, 120 wounded
January 2014: 24 killed, 82 wounded

A breakdown of the month’s idiocy shows:

  • 36 shot & killed
  • 1 non-fatal police shooting
  • 1 fatal CCW shooting
  • 2 homicide-linked arrests
  • Averaged 6.7 people shot per day
  • 12 days were homicide-free
  • 0 death investigations (hmm)
  • 21 in serious or critical condition
  • 37 males killed vs 4 females
  • 41 teenagers shot, 3 killed
  • 8 grazed
  • 4 selfies
  • 6 #ShotInTheAss

February is always the slowest and quietest month of the year which will result in a “remarkable” decrease in the increase. We’re forecasting 35 homicides with another 150 shot and wounded which will be the low point of the year as spring is due to arrive and warm-ups begin ahead of the annual summer shooting season.

Happy Anniversary

Three StoogesFive years ago today we launched an idea based on the “Chicago values” we were lectured about during the violent, political-anti-Chick-fil-A chicken sammich-infused summer of 2012. Every now and then we’re reminded about these values, but since we were never told exactly what those values are, we assumed that it must be murder, crime and mayhem.

In the past five years, we’ve recorded nearly 3,000 homicides, 15,000 shot and wounded, a crapload of “death investigations” along with many hundreds of people who caught one in the ass.

As always, thanks to everyone who has visited, emailed, followed, linked, liked and donated helping make this idea a very minor success.

Year In Review

Father TimeIt’s that time of year when we make a piss poor attempt to summarize the year that was. We classified 2016 simply as a “shitshow”. We’re going to say that 2017 was slightly less shitshow-y, but a shitshow nonetheless.

For more than half of the year, 2017 was running ahead of 2016 with such performances like the disastrous July 4th weekend that tallied over 100 shot or the annual Father’s Day Shoot-O-Rahm-a. By August-time, the idiocy, for whatever reason, retraced back to 2015 levels where rainbow farting unicorns grazed along the lakefront and songs of “#crimeisdown” filled the air.

Come midnight Jan 1, 2018, 16.5% less people were dead and nearly 20% less people were found themselves with additional ventilation. Aside from comparing 2017 to the worst year in two decades, a decline in the incline is parade worthy (just don’t invite the carjackers or the $200 million overtimers).

Fortunately, we fell way short with our 2017 prediction of 850 homicides and 3850 shot and wounded. 2018 may likely fall somewhere in-between 2017 and 2015 with 600-650 homicides and 2500-3000 shot and wounded. If the Polar Vortex decides to hang out for much the winter, we think we’ll end up closer to the lower end of that range.

Finally, many thanks to everyone who visited, liked, retweeted, emailed and hit the tip jar this past year. Have yourself a safe and prosperous new year.
