May Wrap-up

Posted on Friday, May 31st, 2019

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.

April Wrap-up

Posted on Tuesday, April 30th, 2019

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.

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.

Spring Break(ing)

Posted on Thursday, April 18th, 2019


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.”

The McDonald’s Incident

Posted on Wednesday, April 10th, 2019


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

Posted on Tuesday, April 2nd, 2019

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.

WTF Just Happened?

Posted on Tuesday, March 26th, 2019

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

Posted on Friday, March 1st, 2019

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

Posted on Thursday, February 21st, 2019

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

Posted on Saturday, February 16th, 2019

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

Posted on Thursday, February 14th, 2019

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”.

Happy Anniversary

Posted on Saturday, January 26th, 2019

Three StoogesIt’s hard to believe that it has now been six years since we flipped the switch on a questionably named site that decided to illustrate “Chicago values”. At the time, we went live with just a handful of charts, no shooting statistics (just homicides), no commentary and most importantly, no Shot-In-The-Ass-O-Meter.

In those six years, we’ve recorded nearly 3,500 homicides, over 17,000 shot and wounded and hundreds of “death investigations” which have resulted in over 300,000 stupidity-related data points.

Thanks to everyone who has visited, emailed, followed, linked, liked and/or donated over the past 2,191 days.

Year In Review

Posted on Thursday, January 3rd, 2019

Father Time2016 was a shitshow, 2017 was slightly less shitshow-y, but despite 2018 tallying much higher totals than 2004-2015, the only number that matters to the betters is year-over-year.

Most of the year ran behind 2017 and therefore could be considered “acceptable”, however it was the annual Shootapalooza weekend that casted a 2016-like spotlight on Chicago that reminded the nation that some things never change. A few days later, most everyone returned to their natural not-giving-a-rat’s-ass position and the year marched on. By midnight Jan 1, 2019, 14% less people were dead and nearly 16% less people were found themselves with additional ventilation when compared to 2017’s totals.

Our prediction of 600-650 homicides and 2500-3000 shot and wounded fell just a bit short of the low end with the help of a cool and wet spring. Looking ahead, the talk about new technology and tactics won’t translate into much of anything given the pro-criminal State’s Attorney and the possibility of a new pro-crime, anti-cop mayor. We’re looking for 2019 to come in somewhere around 575-600 homicides and 2400-2600 shot and wounded. Depending on the city’s mayoral selection, we could come in at the higher end if the CPD decides to become more fetal.

As always, 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.

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 — 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.
