Carnac the MagnificentWhile May, June & July ended up being “unacceptable”, record breaking months and August provided an ever so slight respite, September pulls a “hold my beer” and puts up totals rivaling the early 90s.

September 2019: 54 killed, 212 wounded
September 2018: 49 killed, 207 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:

We went 2 for 3 on our forecast of 60 homicides and an additional 325 shot and wounded with #3000 person shot hitting the board on the 14th. October will most likely continue the Season’s trend. We’re forecasting another 60 homicides and an additional 300 shot and wounded. Our early guesstimate for year end has us looking at 750 to 800 homicides and upwards of 4000 shot and wounded.
