March Wrap-up

Posted on April 2, 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.
