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.

January Wrap-up

Posted on Thursday, January 30th, 2020

Carnac the Magnificent Without the benefit of the Polar Vortex (and the Juicy Smollett Hoax), this January posted average returns that’ll require certain individuals to ignore last year and choose any other year to make the “crime is down” comparison work.

January 2020: 36 killed, 140 wounded
January 2019: 23 killed, 112 wounded
January 2018: 42 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:

  • 28 (78%) shot & killed
  • 4 stabbed
  • 4 beaten
  • A person killed every 20 hours, 34 minutes
  • A person shot & wounded every 4 hours, 28 minutes
  • First shooting/homicide-free day since November
  • 9 days were homicide-free
  • 2 shot by CPD
  • 3 death investigations
  • 9 homicide-linked arrests
  • 18 in serious or critical condition
  • 34 males killed vs 2 females
  • 22 Blacks killed vs 11 Hispanics vs 2 Unknown
  • Average age of a homicide victim, 28
  • Youngest homicide victim, 7mo, oldest, 74
  • 38 teenagers shot, 6 killed
  • 11 grazed
  • 2 selfies
  • 10 #ShotInTheAss

February is always the slowest and quietest month of the year which sometimes yields a “remarkable” decrease in the increase. We’re forecasting 30 homicides with another 120 shot and wounded which will mark the low point of the year as Spring Training arrives and practice begins ahead of the annual Summer Shooting Season.

Seven-year Itch

Posted on Friday, January 24th, 2020

Three StoogesOn January 25th, 2013, we launched a questionably named site with the simple idea of illustrating “Chicago values”. At the time, Rahm was only in his second year, GMac was the police superintendent and “crime is down” was the phrase du jour. Our humble beginnings started with just a handful of charts, no shooting statistics (just homicides) and no commentary.

In the past seven years, we’ve recorded over 4,000 homicides, nearly 20,000 shot and wounded and hundreds of “death investigations” which have resulted in over 350,000 stupidity-related data points.

Thanks to everyone who has visited, emailed, followed, linked, liked and/or donated over the past seven years.

Face PlantThe new stats are posted, but it will take us a few more days to get everything lined up and lookin’ purty. We were able to figure out and fix the commentary posting issue and as such, we’ll resume normal posting this week.

Thanks for your patience and continued support.

Year In Review

Posted on Thursday, January 2nd, 2020

Father TimeAfter a decade of relative calm, and by calm we mean a consistent posting of 450 yearly homicides give or take, 2012 caused sphincters to clinch tightly across the land as the mythical 500 barrier was broken. This being as unacceptable as ketchup on a hot dog, the “#CrimeIsDown” years were ushered in where crime fell to levels not seen since Potawatomi Chief Blackbird reclassified killing Fort Dearborn civilians from casualties of war to workplace violence. That was the spin anyway.

As 2015 saw Rahm get a second term with the help of a hidden video tape, we made a return trip to 500+-ville. Unacceptable pearl clutching ensued only to be outdone by the next three years spent on the fainting couch of 90s level stupidity. As Hummin’ Hennessy Ed took credit for the reversion to the mean before being shitcanned for getting his little Johnson polished, orders came down that another five handle was to be avoided. As if posting calorie counts can stop the governor from a second helping, 500 was easily exceed but with 13% fewer calories homicides than 2018.

Our prediction of 575-600 homicides and 2400-2600 shot and wounded fell almost as short as the French actor, Juicy Smollett’s hate crime audition. Given the continued efforts of our pro-criminal State’s Attorney, “not horrible” judiciary and anti-cop mayor, we see another 500+ year ahead with 525-550 homicides and another 2500 shot and wounded. Outlier prediction – pot legalization will fail to produce the anticipated revenues due to the insane level of taxation and the CPD will end up ventilating a neighborhood dealer while on a revenue enforcement mission. All hell will break loose as a result.

As always, many thanks to everyone who visited, liked, retweeted, emailed and hit the tip jar this past year. We have a number of changes and updates planned for 2020. Stay tuned and have yourself a safe and prosperous new year.

November Wrap-up

Posted on Wednesday, December 4th, 2019

Carnac the Magnificent Shootings up, homicides down, Slumpin’ Hennessy Ed out, dozens of merit hacks to follow and the stupidity continues with 500 on deck.

November 2019: 35 killed, 160 wounded
November 2018: 48 killed, 129 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:

  • 28 (80%) shot & killed
  • A person killed every 20 hours, 37 minutes
  • A person shot & wounded every 4 hours, 30 minutes
  • First shooting/homicide-free day since March
  • 7 days were homicide-free
  • 2 shot by Des Plaines police
  • 4 homicide-linked arrests
  • 34 in serious or critical condition
  • 30 males killed vs 5 females
  • 23 Blacks killed vs 9 Hispanics vs 3 White/Other
  • Average age of a homicide victim, 32
  • Youngest homicide victim, 17, oldest, 66
  • 40 teenagers shot, 4 killed
  • 18 grazed
  • 5 selfies
  • 7 #ShotInTheAss

Our November forecast of 40 homicides plus another 150 wounded was closer than Ed making it to his retirement date. But now, all eyes (at least those few of us who pay attention to this nonsense) are now looking towards the year end total. Aside from a three week blizzard or martial law, 500 is a lock. We’re looking to end the year around 520 which prior to 2016 would have been a pearl clutching event but is now seen as an improvement.

Turkey Shoot Weekend

2018 Thanksgiving weekend: 4 killed, 20 wounded
2017 Thanksgiving weekend: 8 killed, 37 wounded

October Wrap-up

Posted on Thursday, October 31st, 2019

Carnac the Magnificent If Slumpin’ Hennessy Ed and his 16 shots and a (DUI) coverup is to take credit for the slowing stupidity, then it would be advantageous to keep his tab open.

October 2019: 40 killed, 192 wounded
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:

  • 37 (92%) shot & killed
  • A person killed every 18 hours, 26 minutes
  • A person shot & wounded every 3 hours, 52 minutes
  • Everyday tallied at least two shot
  • 9 days were homicide-free
  • 1 mass shooting leaves 5 dead
  • Zero police-involved shootings
  • 2 homicide-linked arrests
  • 42 in serious or critical condition
  • 35 males killed vs 5 females
  • 29 Blacks killed vs 3 Hispanics vs 7 Whites
  • Average age of a homicide victim, 31
  • Youngest homicide victim, 15, oldest, 65
  • 31 teenagers shot, 10 killed
  • 13 grazed
  • 5 selfies
  • 13 #ShotInTheAss
  • 44 shot by the State of Indiana

Like the Cubs, our October forecast of 50 homicides with another 200 shot and wounded was a bit outside of the ballpark. With last November being a “more dead, less lead” sort of affair with 48 homicides and an additional 129 wounded along with the fact we’re already seeing snow, we’re looking for 40 homicides plus another 150 wounded. This would keep our year end homicide forecast of 520-540 unchanged and on target.

September Wrap-up

Posted on Tuesday, October 1st, 2019

Carnac the Magnificent Warmer weather allowed for a steady stream of stupid to run up the highest homicide tally since May’s 57.

September 2019: 52 killed, 213 wounded
September 2018: 49 killed, 207 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:

  • 49 (94%) shot & killed
  • 2 (4%) stabbed
  • 1 (2%) strangled
  • A person killed every 14 hours, 6 minutes
  • A person shot & wounded every 2 hours, 45 minutes
  • Everyday tallied at least three shot
  • 10 days were homicide-free
  • 94% of homicides were on South & West sides
  • Two ongoing “death investigations”
  • One police-involved shooting
  • 2 homicide-linked arrests
  • 35 in serious or critical condition
  • 48 males killed vs 3 females
  • 42 Blacks killed vs 8 Hispanics vs 1 White
  • Average age of a homicide victim, 29
  • Youngest homicide victim, 15, oldest, 65
  • 59 teenagers shot, 8 killed
  • 7 grazed
  • 4 selfies
  • 11 #ShotInTheAss
  • 52 shot by the State of Indiana

Last October posted 54 homicides with an additional 209 shot and wounded. This October, we’re looking for another 50 homicides with another 200 cases of lead poisoning. The current trend puts 2019’s final numbers in the 520-540 homicides range which would be just good enough for a “crime is down” parade down State St on New Years Day.

Summer Lovin’

Posted on Thursday, September 5th, 2019

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.
