June’s 50

Posted on July 1, 2015

CarnacThe wettest and cloudiest June on record didn’t do much to stop the stupidity. June, like most of 2015, continues to churn and burn at a quicker pace than the last two years, yet somehow crime is still down.

Our prediction was “dead” on for homicides, but a bit low on the wounded side: … we’ll predict a total of 46 (+/-4) homicides plus another 290 (+/-10) shot and wounded. Close enough.

Final Stupidity Tally: 50 killed, 244 wounded
Last June’s Tally: 39 dead, 247 wounded

A breakdown of the month’s idiocy shows:

  • 44 shot & killed
  • 4 stabbed
  • 2 killed via other means
  • 5 ongoing “death investigations”
  • 1 police-involved shooting
  • 44 in serious or critical condition
  • 46 males killed, 4 females
  • 68 teenagers shot, 9 killed
  • 14 grazed
  • 3 selfies
  • 16 #ShotInTheAss

Looking ahead to July, the stupidity knob will be cranked up to 11. Last July tallied 46 homicides and 277 shot and wounded. However, since we have yet to experience any sort of hot & humid weather this year and assuming it does hit, watch out… therefore we’ll predict a total of 50 (+/-4) homicides plus another 300 (+/-10) shot and wounded.

Keep it short and to the point. Name calling and similar stupidity will be deleted. If you insist on writing several paragraphs, start your own blog.

    Good news is that total shootings for June were down, not so good news–homicides are up,

    For July I am going with: 338 total shootings with 58 killed.
    4 other types of homicides for a total of 62

    The hot humid air will arrive and the honor students will all be out to make up for lost time.

    52 for July.

    You guys are pumped up for the 4th I think the homeboys r going to let us down this year…4killed 48wounded… U/already know they can’t aim good

  6. Dr. Doom July 2, 2015 at 9:59 am

    Just looks like the aim is getting better, that’s all.

    My crystal ball shows July as 55 bagged and tagged and 342 wounded. The heat and humidity will dull the honor students brain and aim but still a big month. The Honor Students will not be in school laboring over quantum physics, chemistry and calculus so they are free to analyze firearm physics such as: Amount of fall and drag on a bullet over 30 feet calculating the grain and caliber of the bullet. The velocity in dry air vs. very humid air, etc. No way a job will get in the way of their studies.

    I thought the humid air would help hold the bullet up longer like a baseball. I’ll go with an even 60 DRT by gunfire or whatever and 350 wounded for July. Happy 4th!

    lawyers and doctors all praying your predictions come true

    Been noticing the shot vs killed ratios in the different hoods. Englewood boys need some range time……………

    • Tony July 2, 2015 at 10:13 pm

      Good catch, I had not noticed that so I will have to start paying attention. Maybe we can get a voters petition drive to put some tax money into range time. It would be much cheaper than First responders, emergency rooms, and all the other wasted time spent on wounded.

        You guys want such a high murder rate ..who the hell will be left for 2016???

    Shoot em up bang bang

    This whole thing is a disgrace. A broken, broke, corrupt city run by the left for too damn long. The civilized world looks at Chicago as what is wrong with this country lead by socialist Robin Hood politicians.. And the sheeples have not a damn clue!

    • James M July 3, 2015 at 8:48 am

      Hey , Conserva-tard ! How come Chicago has a murder rate 5000 times higher than Vermont? Vt has the only openly Socialist Senator in the US, but only has 10 murders per year,

      • irreverentone July 6, 2015 at 12:57 pm

        Uh James, it might have something to do with the demographics.

  13. Will July 5, 2015 at 6:53 pm

    Most is on med or need to be
