May Wrap-up

Posted on June 2, 2015

CarnacLast month we said that May acts like a warm-up act to summer’s headliner, and did it get the crowd warmed up. May made significant additions to the shooting totals, so much so that our prediction was way off: This May we’ll predict a total of 45 (+/-4) homicides plus another 230 (+/-10) shot and wounded. At least we nailed to homicide number.

Final Stupidity Tally: 47 killed, 284 wounded
Last May’s Tally: 46 dead, 231 wounded

A breakdown of the month’s idiocy shows:

  • 38 shot & killed
  • 4 stabbed
  • 5 killed via other means
  • 6 ongoing “death investigations”
  • 2 police-involved shootings
  • 42 in serious or critical condition
  • 40 males killed vs 7 females
  • 58 teenagers shot, 7 killed
  • 22 grazed
  • 3 selfies
  • 18 #ShotInTheAss

Looking ahead, stupidity is a guarantee for June. Last year June tallied 39 homicides and 247 shot and wounded. Given how things have been progressing this year, we’ll predict a total of 46 (+/-4) homicides plus another 290 (+/-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.

    This June has the added luxury of police being targeted as the bad guys by “local, state and federal politicians and grandpa thugs Jesse and Al. And hundreds of shooters are running free and easy in the war zone, ie Chiraq already. In NY people are begging that “stop and frisk” be re-instated because of the exponential increase in crime….but the honor thugs are out from school (not that many were in school) and havoc,hate mayhem will rule this June. Juneteenth itself is a Friday night, the 19th….by then we will have 28/286…by July 1 we will total 62 dead and 432 wounded.

    You’re raising the bar for the Honor Students shooting ability.

    A neat bar graph would be the names of the judges who give/gave repeat offenders (such as the Pitts fecal matter) hardly any time behind bars. There may even be an opportunity to have a compare/contrast bar graph such as where the judge lives/where the thug lives….if these judges think that certain human fecals should be released perhaps the honor student fecal should be released to the judge’s family…and live in the judge’s home.it does take a pillage

      Now that is an idea with potential!! We all know these judges practice ” social justice” because the “Honor Students” dont live in the same zipcode. A graph or map like you suggest would be a helpful guide to those seeking to steer clear of the mayhem.
      I’m not sure what to call it though.

    expecting plenty of action after hockey game – win or lose. any stats compiled on sport days?

    • Dane Wayne June 4, 2015 at 5:55 am

      Hockey Fans don’t need room to destroy. Last Cup celebration in Chicago had virtually no “celebration” rioting, if any, as I recall.

      Or, were you being facetious?

  5. Sparky June 3, 2015 at 7:49 pm

    The suburbans should be throwing out boxes of ammo on the worst streets of Chicago, to improve the total numbers..

    • circus June 4, 2015 at 12:41 pm

      That’s funny.

  6. Dane Wayne June 4, 2015 at 5:24 am

    Mother of g-d! You guys effing rock!!!! You keep getting better. I just stopped in as I do from time to time and I saw you Cost of Shooting compilation.

    Most excellent!!!

    I always wondered about that.

    Great job. And, thank you!

  7. Dane Wayne June 4, 2015 at 5:46 am

    Oh, also, I imagine you guys get a billion requests to do this or that, but with the recent shooting in19 of the young man shot during a hold-up for his cellphone, to hold the politicians accountable and to make a point that it is becomming increasingly evident that the only thing that is going to protect good people in a community IS the community, please think of tracking the crime in 19 and a comperable sized community in a high CCW state like Texas or Utah. I think that would establish a pretty good baseline. Just a thought. Thanks again.

    Rahm just cut the ribbon on a 2.7 mile jogging trail at a cost of 95 million that 6666 dollars a mile , next we have a extension of the river walk at a cost of 25 thousand dollars a foot . A new park for downtown at a cost of 60 million and a new gym for De Paul university another 45 million . Billion it tif money used as a slush fund . Rahm own son was a victim and he has 24 hour police protection. Chug wanted 1000 more police we now know how to pay for them the question is will another thousand be enough to ??

    I hear that the gang bangers are now using Roman Candles to shoot at each other. Here’s another tip….. Start making “spud guns”. Those work really well, and are cheap to make.

  10. Tony June 5, 2015 at 9:00 pm

    My guess is 56 dead in June. If the city could cough up some of the money out of the jogging trail and other luxuries and get some mortars and grenade launchers along with
    AK 47’s and unlimited ammo we could see a real special 4th of July. These mental retards cannot shoot a pistol with any accuracy so give them the real toys and watch the action. They will really light things up.
