September is an interesting month. Since most people don’t consider it part of summer, interest in summer-like stupidity drops at a good clip as the month grids along. Even though September regularly puts up 40 homicides or more, by this point in the year, no one much cares anymore.
Case in point, this past weekend tied for the second most violent of the year and yet it barely registered in the news cycle.
In any event, this September was not good.
45 killed and another 212 wounded makes it one the most idiotic in years. September 2013 tallied 42 killed and 154 wounded. Therefore this September was a “More Dead, More Lead” month.
Looking ahead to October, it’ll all depend on the weather. If it stays somewhat nice, another 40 homicides and 150 wounded is not out of the question. If it turns shitty sooner than expected, we’ll likely see 30 homicides and 100 wounded.
