Summer Lovin’

Posted on Wednesday, September 9th, 2020

Bozo's Grand Prize GameThis year’s Summer Shooting Season not only nailed bucket number six to win a brand new Schwinn bicycle and new, crisp 100 dollar bill, it also managed to take home some high end goods courtesy of Michigan Ave retailers and took numerous field trips to the morgue.

Summer 2020*: 343 killed, 1,606 wounded
Summer 2019: 172 killed, 890 wounded
Summer 2018: 210 killed, 924 wounded
Summer 2017: 240 killed, 1,068 wounded
Summer 2016: 276 killed, 1,292 wounded
Summer 2015: 213 dead, 998 wounded
Summer 2014: 158 dead, 848 wounded

A breakdown of the Season’s stupidity shows:

  • 317 (92.4%) shot & killed
  • 14 (4.1%) stabbed
  • 12 (3.5%) killed via other means
  • A person killed every 7 hours, 36 minutes
  • A person shot & wounded every 1 hours, 37 minutes
  • Everyday tallied at least six people shot
  • Only eight days did not record a homicide
  • 92% of homicides were on South & West sides
  • 8 police-involved shootings, 2 fatal
  • 41 homicide-linked arrests
  • 293 in serious or critical condition
  • 301 males killed vs 42 females
  • Killed: 285 Blacks, 47 Hispanics, 9 Whites
  • Average age of a homicide victim, 30
  • Youngest homicide victim, 1, oldest, 96
  • 31 kids 12 & under shot, 6 killed
  • 291 teenagers shot, 42 killed
  • 97 grazed
  • 16 selfies
  • 112 #ShotInTheAss
  • 385 shot by the State of Indiana (20%)

The current trend puts 2020’s final numbers in the upper 700s to low 800 homicide range with 4,000 total people shot which is right around where 2016 concluded. Given the current mostly peaceful environment with the likelihood for additional peace outbreaks and involuntary retail redistribution, we very well may see higher tallies.

* The Summer Shooting Season runs from 12p Friday of Memorial Day weekend thru 6a Tuesday of Labor Day weekend. 2014, 2016 – 2019 = 101 days, 18 hours or 2,442 hours. 2015 & 2020 = 108 days, 18 hours or 2,610 hours.

August Wrap-up

Posted on Tuesday, September 1st, 2020

Carnac the MagnificentAfter three “unacceptable”, record breaking months in a row, August managed to tap the breaks ever so slightly and not break too many records of recent vintage – total wounded (430) and total shot count (493) – with a decrease in the increase vs a record July.

August 2020: 66 killed, 430 wounded
August 2019: 51 killed, 241 wounded
August 2018: 60 killed, 302 wounded
August 2017: 55 killed, 289 wounded
August 2016: 98 killed, 398 wounded
August 2015: 57 killed, 306 wounded
August 2014: 55 killed, 250 wounded

A breakdown of the month’s idiocy shows:

  • 63 shot & killed
  • 3 killed via other means
  • 3 shot by CPD, 1 fatally
  • 3 CPD officers shot, 0 fatally
  • 1 shot by CCW, nonfatal
  • 8 homicide-linked arrests
  • Averaged 16 people shot per day
  • 5 days was homicide-free
  • 82 in serious or critical condition
  • 59 males killed vs 7 females
  • 52 Blacks, 8 Hispanics, 3 Whites
  • 5 children 12 and younger shot
  • 73 teenagers shot, 7 fatally
  • Homicide age range: 14-72
  • Team Austin led w/ 47 shot, 8 fatal
  • 23 grazed
  • 3 selfies
  • 33 #ShotInTheAss

We’ve been looking for a slowdown in killings, which we got, but it was made up for by the number of shooting victims. We had forecasted 90 homicides with an additional 400 shot and wounded, which while each individual metric was off, the overall total was dead on. Despite the official Summer Shooting Season wrapping up this weekend, September will most likely continue the Season’s trend. We’re forecasting another 60 homicides and an additional 325 shot and wounded with #3000 person shot coming in mid-month.

We’ve Got Issues

Posted on Wednesday, August 12th, 2020

Press Any Key A behind the scenes auto-update f’d something up with the navigation and the layout. As we try and figure out what happened and apply another band-aid, aside from the running totals, updates will be sparse. If this happens to be the end of the line for our eight year old template, we’ll look into trading up to a 2020 model and have this one declared another tragic COVID-19 death.

UPDATE: A roll of duct tape later and we appear to be back in business. We’re actively exploring new templates given the terminal state of the current implementation.

July Wrap-up

Posted on Wednesday, August 5th, 2020

Carnac the MagnificentComing off an “unacceptable” June was a more-unacceptable’r July posting recorded numbers for our dataset and rivaling totals from the early 1990s. 107 homicides puts July 2020 in 4th place since the 1950s behind Sept 1992’s 109, Nov 1974’s 117 and Aug 1991’s 122.

July 2020: 107 killed, 496 wounded
July 2019: 45 killed, 287 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

A breakdown of the month’s idiocy shows:

  • 96 shot & killed
  • 6 fatally stabbed
  • 5 killed via other means
  • 1 shot by CPD, 0 fatally
  • 3 CPD officers shot, 0 fatally
  • 2 shot by CCW, 0 fatally
  • 8 homicide-linked arrests
  • Averaged over 19 people shot per day
  • 1 day was homicide-free, July 30
  • 87 in serious or critical condition
  • 95 males killed vs 12 females
  • 91 Blacks, 13 Hispanics, 3 Whites
  • 2 children fatally shot, 7 & 9
  • 97 teenagers shot, 10 fatally
  • Youngest victim, 2, oldest, 96
  • 28 grazed
  • 4 selfies
  • 37 #ShotInTheAss

We were looking for a slight slowdown from June’s pacing with 80 homicides and 400 shot and wounded, but clearly we were way off. Looking ahead, with now three disastrous and record setting months in the books, August will most likely continue the trend, but we have to get a slow down, even if temporary, at some point. We’re forecasting another 90 homicides and an additional 400 shot and wounded with #500 hitting somewhere mid-month.

Shootapalooza Weekend

Shootapalooza While the festival may have been cancelled much to the chagrin of suburban 20-somethings looking to get shitfaced and partake in an expensive ambulance ride to Northwestern, Shootapalooza is a go and always puts in a solid audition for the headliner weekend of the year.

June Wrap-up

Posted on Tuesday, June 30th, 2020

Carnac the MagnificentThis June was a record setting, “unacceptable”, complete and total shitshow. The homicide count ties beats the mid-90s for most ever; the total shot number is 50+ more than our record peak of 482 in August 2016; 111 shot over Father’s Day weekend; tallied a 30 day homicide run rate of 110, and so on… What a disaster.

June 2020: 94 killed, 467 wounded
June 2019: 50 killed, 274 wounded
June 2018: 60 killed, 289 wounded
June 2017: 86 killed, 322 wounded
June 2016: 78 killed, 373 wounded
June 2015: 51 killed, 244 wounded
June 2014: 39 killed, 248 wounded

A breakdown of the month’s idiocy shows:

  • 89 shot & killed
  • 2 shot by CPD, 0 fatally
  • 2 shot by CCW, 0 fatally
  • 10 homicide-linked arrests
  • Averaged over 18 people shot per day
  • 2 days were homicide-free
  • 75 in serious or critical condition
  • 86 males killed vs 8 females
  • 3 children fatally shot, 1, 3 & 10
  • 69 teenagers shot, 14 fatally
  • Youngest victim, 1, oldest, 61
  • 32 grazed
  • 6 selfies
  • 34 #ShotInTheAss

We didn’t post a forecast for June given the reverb from the mostly peaceful riots, but we were looking for around 60 homicides (whiffed) and 275 shot and wounded (not even close). Looking ahead, with two disastrous months in the books, July will most likely continue the trend and put up at least 80 homicides and an additional 400 shot and wounded. This will put more distance between last year’s number and keep the pace with 2016 & 2017.

The Weekend’s Stupidity

Posted on Friday, June 12th, 2020

Chief WiggumWhile some get upset over cops caught napping in a non-essential, anti-cop Congresscritter’s office (w/ all-you-can-eat popcorn and bottomless coffee for a $1!) as rioting ensued all around, the very same non-essentials need the deflection as the following nonsense continues on day after day for the past half century.

Loot-N-Shoot Weekend

Posted on Friday, May 29th, 2020

1968 RiotsIt was just a week or two ago we were told that peaceful protests were irresponsible, posed “unacceptable health risks” and could kill thousands as a result. Rioting must impart natural herd immunity. CWBChicago has photos of Saturday’s and Sunday’s stupidity.

2019 weekend tally: 10 killed, 45 wounded

Not-A-Lockdown April

Posted on Thursday, April 30th, 2020

Carnac the Magnificent While Mayor Scolding Karen and Governor Mass Gathering yammer on daily about how if we go outside we’ll commit mass murder (except for haircuts and horse farms), actual mass murdering continued at an elevated pace despite “this is not a lockdown, it’s not martial law” in place for the entire month.

April 2020: 57 killed, 195 wounded
April 2019: 66 killed, 187 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:

  • 53 (93%) shot & killed
  • 2 stabbed
  • 2 beaten
  • A person killed every 12 hours, 38 minutes
  • A person shot & wounded every 3 hours, 42 minutes
  • 6 days were homicide-free
  • 0 shot by CPD
  • 2 ruled self defense
  • 2 homicide-linked arrests
  • 28 in serious or critical condition
  • 52 males killed vs 5 females
  • 47 Blacks killed vs 5 Hispanics vs 5 Whites
  • Average age of a homicide victim, 30
  • Youngest homicide victim, 15, oldest, 68
  • 47 teenagers shot, 5 killed
  • 12 grazed
  • 5 selfies
  • 15 #ShotInTheAss

Given the not-a-lockdown and a slowing March, we were guessing April would come in at most around 40 homicides with another 150 shot and wounded. Silly us for thinking diktats and decrees mean anything to trigger pullers and lead catchers. Now with Spring Training in its final weeks and warmer weather cancelling out the scolding, we’re forecasting a 60 homicide May with an additional 250 shot and wounded. The usual Memorial Day weekend shitshow may be more so than usual.

Chicago Values Update

Posted on Wednesday, April 1st, 2020

1970s CPDAs a wise man once said, “You never let a serious crisis go to waste. And what I mean by that it’s an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before.” That said, Baltimore may have come up with the idea, but look for Chicago to turn it into an opportunity.

Following Baltimore’s lead, Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot begged her constituents to stop filling up emergency rooms with gunshot, stabbing and beating victims in light of the global COVID-19 pandemic.

“We need all available beds for coronavirus patients and we can’t have our crimes of poverty victims using up our limited and valuable hospital resources. Once the pandemic passes, there will be ample opportunity to kill and maim. All we’re asking is that you put the guns down,” Lightfoot said Monday while trying not to laugh through the “put the guns down” line.

She added, “As I and others have said countless times, the level of violence is completely acceptable. We will tolerate murder, mass shootings, car jackings and an increase in crime but now is not the time. That’s what summer is for.”

Lightfoot wrapped up her remarks by saying that the police would be looking to improve on their single digit arrest rate, adding, “For those of you who want to continue to shoot and kill people, please hold off until the lockdown, I mean, stay-at-home order is lifted and then have at it.”

Do your part Chicago jagoffs.

Rise of the Virus Scolds

Posted on Thursday, March 26th, 2020

Throw Momma From the TrainMayor Woke Bozo along with the barking seal Blue Check Media betters took to their favorite dumpster fire social platforms to scold and admonish people for going outside violating Governor One-man Mass Gathering’s stay-at-home-and-don’t-breath-or-you’ll-kill-immune-comprimised-grandma order.

Four days into a statewide stay-at-home order, Mayor Lori Lightfoot on Wednesday scolded restless Chicagoans who have taken advantage of spring weather and packed local parks, trails and the city’s lakefront despite growing numbers of people infected by the coronavirus disease.

“If there are people out there, and unfortunately there are, who are determined to do whatever they want despite orders. These are not recommendations. This isn’t guidance. This is an order that’s enforced by law,” a visibly frustrated Lightfoot said at an afternoon news conference. “We’re going to give you an admonition and if you don’t turn right away and head home then you’re going to get a citation. And if worse, yeah, we will take you into custody. I hope that it doesn’t come to that. I hope I don’t have to shut down the lakefront, and shut down all the parks, but I will if we cannot get compliance.”

Aside from numerous Constitutional violations involved with arresting people for not following the stay-at-home and social distancing diktat, how long is it before many won’t comply with anything anyone says? Decades of “put the guns down”, “stop the violence”, “unacceptable …” haven’t put, stopped or accepted a thing. Neither will virus scolding people. Besides, years of chiding the CPD to not arrest, chase, pursue actual criminals along with a CCSA that de-facto legalized shoplifting and other crimes, why follow the rules now?

Speaking of gatherings and social distancing, where are all the sick and dying from St. Patrick’s Day (3/14), the Bernie Sanders rally in Grant Park (also on 3/14), and the cannot postpone primary Election Day (3/17)? Can anyone in the media ask that question of Woke Bozo and OMG? And while you’re at it, also ask if it’s worth destroying the economy for a now 0.92% case fatality rate when the CFR for shootings is over 17%.

February Wrap-up

Posted on Tuesday, March 3rd, 2020

Carnac the Magnificent It’s not often that February beats January in the homicide tally, but chalk up this February as just the 18th to do so since the mid-1950s.

February 2020: 38 killed, 133 wounded
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:

  • 36 (95%) shot & killed
  • 1 stabbed
  • 1 beaten
  • A person killed every 18 hours, 19 minutes
  • A person shot & wounded every 5 hours, 14 minutes
  • 9 days were homicide-free
  • 2 shot by CPD, 1 fatally
  • 6 homicide-linked arrests
  • 37 in serious or critical condition
  • 35 males killed vs 3 females
  • 25 Blacks killed vs 10 Hispanics vs 3 Other
  • Average age of a homicide victim, 29
  • Youngest homicide victim, 15, oldest, 51
  • 39 teenagers shot, 7 killed
  • 4 grazed
  • 1 selfie
  • 7 #ShotInTheAss

February usually marks the bottom of the trend, we’ll start climbing from here as the weather turns and Spring Training begins ahead of the annual Summer Shooting Season. Given the uptick in activity of late and barring any sort of Wuhan-like shutdown, we’re forecasting a 45 homicide March with an additional 150 shot and wounded.

St. Valentine’s Weekend

Posted on Friday, February 14th, 2020

Bodies From St. Valentine's Day MassacreAs of today, this month has already tallied 25 homicides, which is three and a half times what the massacre tallied. Last year we saw the equivalent of 74 St. Valentine’s Day Massacres but we doubt any of those homicides will become part of Chicago lore quite like the original.

Final Stupidity Tally: 4 killed, 25 wounded
2019 weekend tally: 2 killed, 9 wounded
2018 weekend tally: 7 killed, 21 wounded
2017 weekend tally: 5 killed, 26 wounded
2016 weekend tally: 5 killed, 28 wounded
2015 weekend tally: 3 killed, 9 wounded
2014 weekend tally: 3 killed, 7 wounded
