Summer Lovin’

Bozo's Grand Prize GameAt the start of the Summer Shooting Season, we predicted 200 homicides and an additional 950 shot and wounded thinking that record breaking Spring rains would have delayed the stupidity. However, our forecast fell short and found itself hanging out with 2014 instead.

Summer ’19*: 167 killed, 892 wounded
Summer ’18: 209 killed, 921 wounded
Summer ’17: 240 killed, 1,065 wounded
Summer ’16: 276 killed, 1,283 wounded
Summer ’15: 212 dead, 998 wounded
Summer ’14: 169 dead, 847 wounded

A breakdown of the Season’s stupidity shows:

  • 152 (91%) shot & killed
  • 12 (7%) stabbed
  • 3 (2%) killed via other means
  • A person killed every 14 hours, 36 minutes
  • A person shot & wounded every 2 hours, 44 minutes
  • Everyday tallied at least one shooting
  • 87% of homicides were on South & West sides
  • At least 18 ongoing “death investigations”
  • 4 police-involved shootings, 2 fatal
  • 12 homicide-linked arrests
  • 169 in serious or critical condition
  • 148 males killed vs 19 females
  • Average age of a homicide victim, 30
  • Youngest homicide victim, 1, oldest, 70
  • 154 teenagers shot, 21 killed
  • 48 grazed
  • 22 selfies
  • 54 #ShotInTheAss
  • 208 shot by the State of Indiana

The current trend puts 2019’s final numbers in the range of 480-520 homicides with 2,500 total people shot. Those numbers would be good enough for a “crime is down” parade down State St.

* Length of each summer: 12p Friday of Memorial Day weekend thru 6a Tuesday of Labor Day weekend. 2014, 16, 17, 18 & 19 = 101 days, 18 hours or 2,442 hours. 2015 = 108 days, 18 hours or 2,610 hours.

Summer’s Finale

Closing Scene from The Blues BrothersLabor Day weekend means yet another Summer Shooting Season is drawing to a close. Since opening day on Friday, May 24th, we’ve tallied 166 homicides plus nearly 900 shot & wounded.

Final Stupidity Tally: 11 killed, 38 wounded
2018 Labor Day weekend: 11 killed, 21 wounded
2017 Labor Day weekend: 7 killed, 40 wounded
2016 Labor Day weekend: 13 killed, 53 wounded

July Wrap-up

Carnac the MagnificentBy July standards, this July posted below average numbers in the deceased column which will result in slightly less “unacceptable” and more “much more work remains to be done” proclamations.

July 2019: 45 killed, 288 wounded
July 2018: 67 killed, 265 wounded
July 2017: 82 killed, 354 wounded
July 2016: 74 killed, 381 wounded
July 2015: 58 killed, 271 wounded
July 2014: 47 killed, 277 wounded
July 2013: 56 killed, 209 wounded

A breakdown of the month’s idiocy shows:

  • 40 shot & killed
  • 1 fatal police-involved shooting
  • 1 fatal friendly fire incident
  • 5 homicide-linked arrests
  • Averaged over 10 people shot per day
  • 8 days were homicide-free
  • Weekends tallied 2/3rds of homicides
  • 7 death investigations
  • 51 in serious or critical condition
  • 38 males killed vs 7 females
  • 45 teenagers shot, 4 fatally
  • Youngest victim, 1, oldest, 57
  • 39 of 45 (86.6%) victims are black
  • 18 grazed
  • 10 selfies
  • 17 #ShotInTheAss

We didn’t post a forecast for July given the early onset of the annual July 4th Shitshow of the Year, but we were looking for around 60 homicides (whiffed). Looking ahead, August has consistently put up 55 or 56 homicides for 4 of the last 6 years. We’re not going to bet against the house, even at a poorly located casino, so we’ll go with 55 homicides and an additional 275 shot and wounded. This puts us right around last year’s 56/304 deadly duo.

May Wrap-up

Carnac the MagnificentSpring Training wrapped up with the wettest May on record which just so happens to top last May’s wettest ever record. No matter the weather, watch for the decrease in the increase spin to make no headlines.

May 2019: 57 killed, 202 wounded
May 2018: 54 killed, 265 wounded
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:

  • 52 shot & killed
  • 5 fatal stabbings
  • 3 fatal police-involved shootings
  • 3 non-fatal self defense shootings
  • 2 homicide-linked arrests
  • Averaged 8 people shot per day
  • 2 days were homicide-free
  • 3 death investigations
  • 42 in serious or critical condition
  • 49 males killed vs 3 females
  • 37 teenagers shot, 9 fatally
  • 10 grazed
  • 4 selfies
  • 13 #ShotInTheAss

Our May forecast got waterlogged and fell short of the predicted 60 homicides with another 275 shot and wounded. However our not so wild guess that Memorial Day weekend would be the usual shitshow regardless of what the new mayor says or hopes the CPD does or doesn’t, did come to pass. Now with the Summer Shooting Season underway, June should put up around 60 homicides with an additional 250 shot and wounded. This puts us in the decrease in the increase ballpark versus last year’s 59/289 box score.

Memorial Day Weekend

Chicago Memorial Day ParadeMemorial Day weekend marks the start of the annual Summer Shooting Season. Similar to last year, we’ll expect to see around 200 homicides and an additional 950 shot and wounded between now and Labor Day weekend.

April Wrap-up

Carnac the Magnificent We’re going to assume that with numbers like this, we won’t be hearing much about how homicides and shootings are down vs last year. What a mess.

April 2019: 61 killed, 189 wounded
April 2018: 42 killed, 181 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:

  • 60 shot & killed
  • 2 fatal self defense shootings
  • 2 homicide-linked arrests
  • Averaged 8.3 people shot per day
  • 2 days were homicide-free
  • 3 death investigations
  • 38 in serious or critical condition
  • 49 males killed vs 12 females
  • 53 teenagers shot, 14 fatally
  • 9 grazed
  • 5 selfies
  • 17 #ShotInTheAss

Our April forecast of 40 homicides with another 175 shot and wounded was 50% short on the homicide side of the ledger. We certainly didn’t see a six handle. Anyway, Spring Training continues and will barrel into Memorial Day weekend which is always a guaranteed shitshow regardless of what the new mayor says or hopes the CPD does or doesn’t. No matter the wishful thinking, we’re forecasting a 60 homicide May with an additional 275 shot and wounded which would put slightly ahead of last year’s 54/265 box score and will further close the 2018 vs 2019 gap.

The Weekend’s Shoot-o-Rahm-a

No snow dibsThe calendar may say late April, but early March returns with, sigh… snow, wind, cold and possibly some dibs. In any event, this crap may be the only thing to keep April’s homicide count from breaking 60 and excitable youth from applying for jobs tearing up downtown.

2018 weekend tally: 2 killed, 20 wounded
2017 weekend tally: 4 killed, 19 wounded

Spring Break(ing)


In what is sure to be a preview of summer in Chicago, discord, mayhem and a general sense of jagoffery were on display as “large groups” overtook downtown on a pleasant Spring evening.

“More than 35 juveniles and at least three adults in their late teens were arrested as another night of “large group activity” overtook the downtown area on Wednesday, according to multiple Chicago Police Department sources. Most of the arrests were for disorderly conduct while a handful was facing battery, criminal damage to property, and shoplifting charges, the sources said.

By early evening, a CPD deputy chief closed the department’s central detention facility to adult arrests so it could handle the influx of juvenile detainees, according to a source with knowledge of the night’s operations.

Police estimated that as many as 500 juveniles began arriving in the Magnificent Mile and Millennium Park areas around 5 p.m. Large groups of teens were shadowed by officers on bikes for hours. Fighting was reported from time to time in downtown subway stations with the Chicago-State and Lake Street Red Line stations seeing the most trouble.”

Kids will be kids!

The McDonald’s Incident


CWBChicago got a hold of a cell phone video (vertical of course) from this past April that shows a scuffle between the security guard and two individuals with a surprise ending:

“The video, filmed from inside McDonald’s at 10 East Chicago, shows two males attacking a middle-aged man who appears to be a security guard. The man is slammed against the restaurant’s outside wall by the pair who punch and grapple the older man as he works to free himself.

Within moments, one of the two apparent attackers picks up an object that appears to be a pepper spray canister while the armed man continues to struggle with the other person.

Suddenly, the man with the canister runs away as the older man returns to camera view with a handgun pointed raised at shoulder height.”

Imagine the uproar if the trigger was pulled at any time during this kerfuffle. There will be a time at some point in the future when an unsuspecting individual going about his/her battering/assaulting/robbing catches a round or two from a CCW holder on or around the Magnificent Mile.

March Wrap-up

Carnac the Magnificent Headlines were a plenty in March with the mayoral election, the Jussie Hoax Circus and the annual Vomit-O’Rahma, yet at the same time, the month quietly tied or surpassed last year’s March.

March 2019: 35 killed, 136 wounded
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:

Our March forecast of 35 homicides with another 150 shot and wounded was nearly dead on. April is usually when Spring Training finally gets underway and the hits start to pick up. We’re forecasting a 40 homicide April with an additional 175 shot and wounded which would put us in the same ballpark as last year’s 42/181 box score.

The Weekend’s Shoot-o-Rahm-a

Chicago Mayors: Thompson, Cermak, Daley, Washington, DaleyWith the mayoral runoff election on Tuesday, this very well may be the last in office, appropriately named “Shoot-o-Rahm-a”. We haven’t decided what to call these going forward, however keeping things as is until we come up with something better suited is the most likely outcome.

Final Shoot-o-Rahm-a Tally: 5 killed, 18 wounded

2017 weekend tally: 8 killed, 18 wounded

WTF Just Happened?

We assumed there would be some sort of judicial hijinks involved with the Smollett case given our pro-criminal State’s Attorney and all, but we didn’t foresee anything like what went down today. And judging by the various reactions, no one else did either.

“In a stunning reversal, Cook County prosecutors abruptly dropped all charges in an indictment accusing Smollett of staging the Jan. 29 attack in Streeterville and falsely claiming he was the victim of a hate crime.

In exchange, prosecutors said, Smollett agreed to forfeit the $10,000 he’d posted for his bond and perform community service. The purported deal appeared to be hastily arranged — Smollett only completed the community service Monday — and apparently was not put in writing.

While prosecutors claimed to have overwhelming evidence, the deal did not require Smollett to admit he did anything wrong. What’s more, Smollett’s lawyers have vehemently disputed there was an agreement at all, and now the entire court file has been sealed at the defense’s request.

The unanswered questions surrounding the development left many wondering what might have happened behind the scenes. It also appeared to have caught Chicago police brass by surprise and brought swift condemnation from Mayor Rahm Emanuel, who called it a “whitewash of justice.” “

Strange things are afoot at the Circle K. In any event, we’re still patiently waiting for the federal mail fraud and/or terrorism charges to come down.

Of course, CWBChicago has an exclusive: Chicago Police Department’s complete investigative file of Jussie Smollett case.

February Wrap-up

Carnac the Magnificent A reversion to the mean of sorts helped by some lousy weather and an outsized interest in a hoax will make this February, like most months, one to forget.

February 2019: 26 killed, 108 wounded
February 2018: 42 killed, 117 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:

  • 22 shot & killed
  • 4 stabbed
  • 1 fatal police shooting
  • 1 non-fatal police shooting
  • 2 homicide-linked arrests
  • Averaged 4.6 people shot per day
  • 9 days were homicide-free
  • 2 death investigations
  • 14 in serious or critical condition
  • 25 males killed vs 1 female
  • 30 teenagers shot, 5 fatally
  • 13 grazed
  • 3 selfies
  • 2 #ShotInTheAss

February is usually the bottom of the trend and it’ll start climbing from here as the weather turns and practice begins ahead of the annual summer shooting season. We’re forecasting a 35 homicide March with an additional 150 shot and wounded which would be inline with last year’s 31/143 combination.

February bonus fact – 2/28/15, 4 years ago, was the last day Chicago saw a day without a shooting and/or a homicide.

Jus(sie) Getting Started

This guyWe’re having a hard time trying to recall a case that has spilled as much ink as this Smollett fraud. We haven’t said a word about it only saying to ourselves that this whole thing smelled funny within a few hours of it being first reported.

While we were expecting a misdemeanor charge from our pro-criminal State’s Attorney followed by the usual GoFundMe campaign to cover legal fees and various other injustices, capped off by a last minute write-in campaign for mayor, we’re of the opinion that it’s going to get worse of Mr. Gay Tupac. Specifically, his “failed to impress” letter threat will have the Feds dropping the hammer.

Wait for it.

Sorry Folks

Sorry folks, we're taking some time off.No Weekend-Shoot-O-Rahm-A this weekend, however we may have to do a Hoax-O-Rahm-A timeline to keep track of all the twists and turns of this Jussie Smollett hoax case. We’re shocked!, shocked!! that it appears as if the original story was a bit, say, ’embellished’.
CWBChicago has all the latest developments.

St. Valentine’s Day Massacre

Bodies From St. Valentine's Day Massacre90 years ago today, one of the most infamous incidents in Chicago history took place, the St. Valentine’s Day Massacre. A total of seven people were gunned down in a garage at 2122 N. Clark Street in Lincoln Park.

As of today, this month has already tallied 14 homicides, which is double what the massacre tallied. Last year we saw the equivalent of 84 St. Valentine’s Day Massacres and the recent peak of 2016 scored 115 massacres.

Two other notable parallels to the present day are 1) no one was ever convicted for the crime and 2) the code of silence was alive and well back then too. Frank Gusenberg, who was the only one of the seven to survive the attack, told the cops “nobody shot me”. He died three hours later from 14 bullet wounds. Today he’d be labeled as being “uncooperative”.
