End of Watch

Posted on Tuesday, December 18th, 2018

Two Chicago Police officers were struck and killed by a Metra train:

“A long procession of police cars, blue lights flashing, escorted ambulances carrying the bodies of two Chicago police officers to the morgue early Tuesday, hours after they were struck and killed by a South Shore train while answering a call of shots fired on the Far South Side.

As the ambulances turned into the parking lot, they drove under a large American flag hoisted by a firetruck β€” a scene that played out just a month ago when another Chicago police officer was killed in the line of duty.

In the latest tragedy to hit the Police Department, Officers Eduardo Marmolejo, 36, and Conrad Gary, 31, were conducting surveillance after a ShotSpotter sensor picked up gunfire near 103rd Street and Dauphin Avenue around 6:20 p.m., police officials said.

They spotted a suspect scrambling up to the Metra tracks and were pursuing him on foot when they were hit by an outbound South Shore train at the 103rd Street Rosemoor stop, according to police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi.”

RIP Officers.

November Wrap-up

Posted on Friday, November 30th, 2018

Carnac the Magnificent Aside from 2016’s total shitshow, this November fell in line with past Novembers with a slightly less shot total possibly due to January’s early arrival.

November 2018: 45 killed, 130 wounded
November 2017: 41 killed, 165 wounded
November 2016: 83 killed, 323 wounded
November 2015: 37 killed, 165 wounded
November 2014: 39 killed, 125 wounded
November 2013: 28 killed, 111 wounded

A breakdown of the month’s idiocy shows:

  • 38 shot & killed
  • 4 fatal stabbings
  • 3 fatalities via other means
  • 2 fatal police shootings
  • 0 homicide-linked arrests
  • Averaged 5.4 people shot per day
  • 8 days were homicide-free
  • 2 death investigations
  • 22 in serious or critical condition
  • 39 males killed vs 6 females
  • 36 teenagers shot, 4 killed
  • 5 grazed
  • 4 selfies
  • 8 #ShotInTheAss

All eyes (at least those few of us who pay attention to this nonsense) are now diverted towards the year end total. December would have to be a complete disaster in order to get close to 600, but seeing that as very unlikely, we’re looking to wrap up with year around 580. While this is certainly better than the last two years, it’s still an elevated total vs other years this century.

End of Watch

Posted on Monday, November 19th, 2018

Mercy Hospital shooting:

“A Chicago police officer and two other people were killed in an attack at a South Side hospital Monday afternoon that sent medical personnel and police scrambling through halls, stairwells and even the nursery in search of victims and the shooter before he was found dead.

Officer Samuel Jimenez, on the force less than two years, was gunned down as he went to the aid of other officers who had been called to Mercy Hospital & Medical Center around 3:20 p.m. about an assault. Jimenez, 28, was married with three small children. He’s the second Chicago police officer killed in the line of duty this year, the most since 2010 when five officers were fatally shot. The first was Near North District Cmdr. Paul Bauer, killed Feb. 13 outside the Thompson Center.

Police had been called to the hospital after a gunman confronted his girlfriend, emergency room doctor Tamara O’Neal, apparently over a “broken engagement,” sources said. By the time Jimenez and his partner arrived on the scene, he had shot O’Neal repeatedly, standing over her as he fired the last shots, according to police sources and witnesses.

The gunman, who sources say had a concealed carry license, then exchanged gunfire with Jimenez and other officers as he ran into the hospital. Jimenez was shot in the lobby as the gunman continued firing. A squad car was hit, and a bullet hit the holster and lodged in the gun barrel of another officer, according to Johnson.

Dayna Less, 25, a first-year pharmacy resident, was hit as she walked out of an elevator. “That woman got off an elevator and was shot, why?” Johnson asked. The suspect was found inside the hospital, apparently suffering a wound to the head. Johnson said it was unclear how he was shot.”

RIP Officer Jimenez, Dr. O’Neal & Ms. Less.

October Wrap-up

Posted on Wednesday, October 31st, 2018

Carnac the Magnificent With the JVD trial wrapping up and the jury delivering a non-riotable verdict, the regularly scheduled maimings and fatalities that no one gives a crap about could continue without additional lead inflation.

October 2018: 54 killed, 209 wounded
October 2017: 59 killed, 227 wounded
October 2016: 82 killed, 348 wounded
October 2015: 31 killed, 203 wounded
October 2014: 39 killed, 215 wounded

A breakdown of the month’s idiocy shows:

  • 46 shot & killed
  • 2 non-fatal police shootings
  • 1 self defense homicide
  • 4 homicide-linked arrests
  • Averaged 8 people shot per day
  • 5 days were homicide-free
  • 4 death investigations
  • 35 in serious or critical condition
  • 45 males killed vs 6 females
  • 33 teenagers shot, 9 killed
  • 8 grazed
  • 1 selfie
  • 12 #ShotInTheAss

Unlike the Cubs, our October forecast of 45 homicides with an additional 215 shot and wounded was in the ballpark. Last year November tapped the brakes and closed with 41 homicides with an additional 165 wounded. It’s likely this November will not require new pads and rotors and continue on at a similar pace with 50 homicides plus another 200 wounded. Our year end homicide forecast is currently trending towards 580-590 but wouldn’t take much to top 600.

September Wrap-up

Posted on Tuesday, October 2nd, 2018

Carnac the Magnificent A late surge of stupidity within the final day of the month put the kibosh on what would have been the lowest homicide total since March’s 31.

September 2018: 46 killed, 208 wounded
September 2017: 61 killed, 273 wounded
September 2016: 69 killed, 301 wounded
September 2015: 63 killed, 303 wounded
September 2014: 46 killed, 211 wounded
September 2013: 42 killed, 154 wounded

A breakdown of the month’s idiocy shows:

  • 43 shot & killed
  • 0 police shootings
  • 1 non-fatal self defense shooting
  • 4 homicide-linked arrests
  • Averaged 8 people shot per day
  • 7 days were homicide-free
  • 3 death investigations
  • 49 in serious or critical condition
  • 44 males killed vs 2 females
  • 53 teenagers shot, 8 fatally
  • 13 grazed
  • 0 selfies
  • 9 #ShotInTheAss

Last October posted 59 homicides with an additional 227 shot and wounded which reinforced the slow down that started in September. We see more of the same this year and therefore we’re looking for 45 homicides plus another 215 wounded*.

*BIG ASTERISK: With the JVD trial wrapping up soon, chances are elevated, yet by no means guaranteed, for some real stupid shit to go down and is impossible to predict if that’s the case.

Summer Lovin’

Posted on Wednesday, September 5th, 2018

Chicagoland RahmBack at the start of the Summer Shooting Season, we predicted 250 homicides and an additional 1,000 shot and wounded thinking that the cool and wet spring would have delayed the stupidity. Despite setting an “unacceptable” single day record of 49 shot on August 5th, our forecast fell way short and found itself somewhere between the 2014 and 2015 tallies.

Summer ’18*: 202 killed, 928 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:

  • 180 shot & killed
  • 11 beaten
  • 11 killed via other means
  • A person killed every 12 hours, 5 minutes
  • A person shot every 2 hours, 12 minutes
  • Everyday tallied a minimum of 3 shot
  • 94% of homicides were on South & West sides
  • 18 ongoing “death investigations”
  • 7 police-involved shootings, 4 fatal
  • 21 homicide-linked arrests
  • 187 in serious or critical condition
  • 170 males killed vs 32 females
  • Average age of a homicide victim, 29.7
  • 227 teenagers shot, 27 killed
  • 60 grazed
  • 13 selfies
  • 34 #ShotInTheAss

The current trend puts 2018’s final numbers right around of 600 homicides and just to the north 3,100 total people shot. Those numbers are just good enough for the annual “crime is down” New Years Eve press releases.

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

Summer’s Final Shoot-o-Rahm-a

Posted on Friday, August 31st, 2018

Closing Scene from The Blues BrothersLabor Day weekend means yet another Summer Shooting Season is drawing to a close. Since the first pitch on Friday, May 25th, we’ve tallied 192 homicides plus another 900+ shot & wounded (~10% less than last summer). Because this particular weekend tends to be stupider than most, we’ll no doubt be adding to those totals before it’s all over.

Final Shoot-o-Rahm-a Tally: 11 killed, 21 wounded
2017 Labor Day weekend: 7 killed, 40 wounded
2016 Labor Day weekend: 13 killed, 53 wounded
2015 Labor Day weekend: 10 killed, 46 wounded
2014 Labor Day weekend: 7 killed, 36 wounded

August Wrap-up

Posted on Thursday, August 30th, 2018

Carnac the Magnificent Given the end Summer Shooting Season will be upon us this coming Labor Day weekend, we figured we’d post our August Wrap-up prior to the final Shoot-O-Rahm-a and tweak it as needed. As for August, it was a carbon copy of last August with a jackrabbit first half of the month (including a record setting 49 shot in one day on the 5th) followed by a much more mellow second half.

August 2018: 56 killed, 304 wounded
August 2017: 55 killed, 289 wounded
August 2016: 98 killed, 398 wounded
August 2015: 56 killed, 307 wounded
August 2014: 46 killed, 250 wounded
August 2013: 55 killed, 222 wounded

A breakdown of the month’s idiocy shows:

  • 54 shot & killed
  • 0 police shootings
  • 1 non-fatal self defense shooting
  • 5 homicide-linked arrests
  • Averaged nearly 12 people shot per day
  • 7 days were homicide-free
  • 7 death investigations
  • 67 in serious or critical condition
  • 44 males killed vs 12 females
  • 82 teenagers shot, 12 fatally
  • 21 grazed
  • 4 selfies
  • 10 #ShotInTheAss

Even though another Summer Shooting Season is nearly in the books, the post season will see more of the same. Last September posted 61 homicides with an additional 273 shot and wounded which was a quite the slow down when compared to the Jan-Aug timeframe. We see the trend of 2015 and now 2017 staying in place, therefore we’re looking for 55 homicides plus another 275 wounded*.

*MAJOR CAVEAT – if and when JVD is acquitted of first degree murder, all bets are off.

July Wrap-up

Posted on Wednesday, August 1st, 2018

Carnac the Magnificent After a rather quiet July 4th extended Shoot-O-Rahm-A weekend, the rest of month returned to its midseason form to finish with an average July.

July 2018: 66 killed, 266 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:

  • 60 shot & killed
  • 6 death by other means
  • 2 fatal police shootings
  • 1 homicide-linked arrest
  • Averaged 10.5 people shot per day
  • 3 days were homicide-free
  • 4 death investigations
  • 54 in serious or critical condition
  • 56 males killed vs 8 females
  • 62 teenagers shot, 5 killed
  • 17 grazed
  • 2 selfies
  • 13 #ShotInTheAss

While we didn’t post an official July forecast due to a Weekend Shoot-O-Rahm-A and the extended July 4th Shitshow, we did estimate the month ending at 330 homicides on our Homicide Trend. Bullseye! Looking ahead, August is usually the peak month of the Summer Shooting Season, however last year saw a substantial pullback from what was a record pace. We doubt we’ll see the same percentage drop this year and instead we’ll continue to grind along recording the same nonsense every day. We’re forecasting 65 homicides with an additional 300 shot and wounded which would put us slightly above last year’s tally (55/289) but well below 2016’s epic disaster (98/398).

May Wrap-up

Posted on Thursday, May 31st, 2018

Carnac the Magnificent Spring Training wrapped up with the wettest May on record which followed the 4th coldest April which followed a very chilly March. Regardless, another average month will be touted as a “remarkable” drop in something something.

May 2018: 51 killed, 264 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:

  • 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).
