Shitshow of the Year

Posted on July 3, 2015

American FlagAs is the case every 4th of July weekend, the stupidity will get cranked to 11 as local jagoffs with coping and anger management issues lose their shit and end up beating, robbing, ventilating and killing others with reckless abandon.

  1. aa July 3, 2015 at 9:52 am

    earlier in the week, emanuel called for “safety in the neighborhoods” over the weekend. like bill clintion once said – “it all depends on what the definition of the word “weekend” is.”

  2. Krazee Loon July 3, 2015 at 10:43 am

    Ya know, it wouldn’t take a lot of break-down in trust/respect/patience/etc for something terrible to kick off this “weekend”.

  3. Fr. Marquette July 3, 2015 at 11:37 am

    There are five Friday’s this month…5 dead already…not many previous shooters/murderers have been arrested…64 dead 345 wounded …for ourselves and our progeny

  4. Nick July 3, 2015 at 12:27 pm

    Looks like it’s going to be a fantastic weekend. Mid 60s to mid 80s and very little chance of rain and high winds. It appears that the honor students won’t be required to use those recently acquired math skills to calculate shot placement when factoring the effects of wind and humidity.

    Let’s give a shout out to the Chicago public school system and all of those PTA parents, who number in the tens of thousands. Remember, the school system and those highly motivated, engaged, and energized parents are responsible for developing Chicago youths who, of course, are “our future”.

    Have an absolutely superb 4th of July and weekend.

  5. Kurt Kohler July 3, 2015 at 2:14 pm

    It would be interesting to find out how many of our Honor Students who are newly shot have been shot previously. You could then append their recognition with honors like, “Shot in the Ass, with Oak Leaf Cluster.” (The abbreviated form for this distinction would be ‘SIAWOLC.’) Thank you.

  6. Nick July 3, 2015 at 5:59 pm

    Kurt: love the idea!….absolutely brilliant.


  7. RGH July 3, 2015 at 6:55 pm

    1:20a 9100 S Ashland, Washington Heights, F/43 was shot in the ass.
    “The woman, 43, was taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn with gunshot wounds to the abdomen and buttocks. She was in stable condition, officials said.”

    Also 4:45p 11800 S State, West Pullman, M/19 was shot in the ass.
    “A 19-year-old man was shot in the 11800 block of South State Street at 4:45 p.m. Thursday in the West Pullman neighborhood, according to police. Police said the man was on the street when someone on a bicycle rode up and shot him in the buttocks. He was taken to Stroger Hospital where his condition had stabilized.”

    3:05p 10100 S Wentworth, Roseland, M/26 shot in the junk.
    “26-year-old man was wounded at 3:05 p.m. Thursday in the 10100 block of South Wentworth Avenue in the Fernwood neighborhood on the Far South Side, police said. The man was shot in the groin and taken to Advocate Christ in good condition, police said.”

    A hellava start for the weekend.

    • Nedd Kareiva July 4, 2015 at 10:34 am

      There was one more “ASSinine” shooting:

      A shooting happened in the 13200 block of South Greenwood in the Riverdale neighborhood on the Far South Side at 11:10 a.m. Thursday night, police said. 22-year-old Moses Van Pelt, of the 0-100 block of Olympic Village in Chicago Heights, was sitting in a parked vehicle when a gray SUV pulled up with several people inside and at least one opened fire, police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office said. Van Pelt was shot in his abdomen, buttocks and knee and was taken to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn where he died at 7:30 p.m., authorities said.

      You might say we’re “on target” for a few more “back enders”.

    • DMS July 5, 2015 at 1:48 pm

      Now that the weather is warm the Honor Students have dropped pants to knee level, so if you use the belt buckle as a point of reference for aiming, if their pants were up around their waist those ass and junk hits would have been dead on chest wounds.

      • Stewart July 5, 2015 at 4:27 pm

        Ghetto marksmanship doesn’t involve aiming of any kind, most shot in the ass are probably obese female bystanders as their ass makes up 80% of their bodyweight. Junk shots I must assume involves some kind of animal obsesion with that body part amongst the bucks.

  8. Peter Parker July 3, 2015 at 7:18 pm

    If that shot clock would git to 8:24 a murder occurs that would be great ..I mean 1:06 would be great but I’m a realist

  9. adam July 3, 2015 at 8:32 pm

    up to 4 killed and 7 wounded now with the shooting in Bronzeville, im gonna predict 15 homicides and 50 wounded over the 4th of july weekend

  10. RexHymens July 3, 2015 at 11:51 pm

    But were they good boys? Were they aspiring rappers turning they life arount? Did they do anything or did they dindu nuffins?

  11. Toni July 4, 2015 at 9:46 am

    Let’s see… Today is the 4th…so far 6 were shot and killed.
    If this continues we’ll beat Baltimore…
    4th weekend…..I’ll say 9 shot and killed, 52 shot and injured.

    BTW, Happy 4th!!!!

  12. Tony July 4, 2015 at 10:29 am

    I have to go with 10 killed and 37 injured. Looking for a last minute surge. Too follow up on Kurt Kohlers suggestion I think they should make sure all previously wounded are identified and are last in line for emergency services. The logic here is that they will probably get shot again and maybe killed so their use of emergency services is reaching over use. Two trips through emergency and that is it, no more. Put a tag on their toe. They only have a certain amount of entertainment value.

    • Krazee Loon July 4, 2015 at 11:09 am

      Not that I disagree, but I would like to see the breakdown of your logic on holding the victim accountable to being a victim again. That sorta logic seems missing from society and I need a refresher.

      • Tony July 4, 2015 at 7:24 pm

        I figure if you are shot once it could be they got the wrong person but you ought to be careful in the future. If you were the right guy and you are stupid enough to continue to live in the same area when the odds are someone wants to kill you and probably will you need to be eliminated from the gene pool. Therefore using simple logic the emergency services provided at the second wounding are probably a waste as three strikes and you are out. The logic is they are too stupid to bother saving and should be bagged and tagged. Hope this helps clarify my above posting.

  13. Frog July 4, 2015 at 5:13 pm

    I would say to the honor student victim, “rat out the guys that shot you or you will be chained up inside this hospital until you mop enough hallways and clean enough bed pans to pay your $35k bill” … instead the fools that claim to be the poe poe just let the city (flush with cash) pick up the tab and get back to their donuts and coffee.

  14. Peter Parker July 5, 2015 at 12:42 am

    Another slow weekend show down .I think the reason is there all blowed out from mon-thurs activities..tomorrow should be good hangovers and unsettled debts

  15. Darcone July 5, 2015 at 8:44 am

    Standard practice should be that any known gang member, person with gang tattoos or gang colors will not be administered emergency services, especially gunshot wounds. This should help clean up the gene pool, and make the scumbags think twice…. But of course there would be marches and speeches that this is racist behavior ……………..

    • Toni July 5, 2015 at 10:48 am

      Of course. sharpton and jackson would lead the parade….directly to their lawyers offices…to top it off blame the police.

    • Commissioner July 7, 2015 at 2:36 pm

      We need a steady supply of wounded gangbangers in our ER’s. Where else do our Army Medics and Navy Corpsmen get the ‘battlefield’ training they need to save the lives of our Warriors?

  16. No. 37 July 5, 2015 at 9:06 am

    I was just reading where Sargent Shriver, an insane Leftist Revolutionary who married into the Kennedy family, financed the Blackstone Rangers with a $900,000 gift back in the 60s. Now these same Leftist goons throw up there hands in a kind of cosmically feigned disgust, wondering how Chicago got to this madness. Gil Scott Heron was wrong. The Revolution is being televised, digitized and archived for future radicals to keep the show going and keep unrest in perpetuity.

  17. garyclarkk July 5, 2015 at 9:49 am

    The Chicago Thugs Shoot For The Cycle. 1 person shot at 00:05. 2 at 00:10. 3 at 02:45 and they completed the feat with 4 at 03:20. The last White Sox to hit for the cycle Jose Valentin on April 27, 2000. Mark Grace last did for the Cubs on May 9, 1993.

  18. James M July 5, 2015 at 12:39 pm

    Is there an Ammo shortage on the Hood? I was expecting about 20% more Mayhem YOY. C’mon Honor Students! Dont let me down!!

  19. Peter Parker July 5, 2015 at 7:59 pm

    They got to 6 n the morning and I doubt they gon get another 6

  20. Sparky July 5, 2015 at 8:49 pm

    I’ll bet they do. No rain, nice, comfortable temps, looks like lots of “payback” going on right now.

  21. MARK July 5, 2015 at 10:43 pm

    Sunday morning a young man looking a bit like the person he was visiting was shoot in a gangway by someone still at large he was taking a puss and his girl friend was with him he’s ok he was shoot in the foot he’s a good kid don’t go out and works I know thus because he’s my step son God was looking out for him amen stop the violence chicago.

  22. Wulf July 5, 2015 at 11:15 pm

    It has been 3hours since last update. No way the honor students haven’t upped the numbers by now.

  23. Bob July 6, 2015 at 8:03 am

    Low temperatures = low body count. If it were in the hi 90’s, we would have been right back to normal numbers.

  24. Wulf July 6, 2015 at 10:59 am

    I took the over at 10 dead 50 shot. W

  25. E Frizzle July 6, 2015 at 11:03 am

    10 killed, 55 wounded, and not one (1) shot in Englewood? Am I seeing this correctly? There must’ve been multiple cops camped out on every street within that community.

    • Bobo July 6, 2015 at 3:31 pm

      That means there will be scores to settle this week.

      They wanted to “get ahead of it.” I laughed out loud.

    Anyone know how we did in the box score against Baltimore New York and LA.

    Another nut doped up on psychiatric drugs shooting unarmed people in a gun free zone.  One thing all of these mass shooters are part of is they all have became chemically dependent on psychiatric drugs.  The NJ Newton shooter, the LA ex-cop 50 cal. shooter, the CO. Batman theater shooter, the recent South Carolina shooter there is a list that goes on that didn’t get as much of attention since 2012.  Notice how the majority of these started in 2012, any logically person can see something was recently placed in the environment to cause violent mood swings.  At one time during the 2nd Iraq war we where losing more soldiers to suicide that where given psychiatric drugs for post tramadic stress syndrome than from the enemy.  The real enemy is this country is the intentional misleading mainstream media.  Second of all the FDA and the license drug dealers (pharmaceutical drug companies) are responsible for thousands of deaths.  If we the people actually care about theses people we need to spread the word and start demanding prosecution of these drug companies and leadership of the FDA ASAP!  The lobbied global elite owned mainstream media sure doesn’t care about you, your family, or this country as well as the people who sponsor their political country corrupting garbage!

  30. Rev. Dean Ornish July 6, 2015 at 9:37 pm

    Got to take note of the big zero up for Englewood.

  31. Chiraq or Afcago? July 7, 2015 at 5:46 am

    Maybe Team Englewood will pick up the tab next weekend. Meanwhile, Garry’s off the Kool-Aid but his numbers are a bit on the light side (as normal) and points out #crimeisdown. He thinks 40 people were shot…I guess the other 16 people either had lead poisoning or accidental copper impalements. Check out the article that was found down heah: http://fox2now.com/2015/07/06/gruesome-weekend-for-chicago-leaves-city-police-chief-reeling/

    It gets better…Michael Brown gets mentioned in this piece from the Atlantic. Seems that all the white people in St. Louis have been in the Klan a long time. And naming names from big corporations… http://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2014/09/fair-st-louis-and-the-veiled-prophet/379460/ So now they renamed it Fair St. Louis…feelin’ like Conspiracy Brother from the movie Undercover Brother! “Smart Brother, am I gonna die?”

    It’s a fact… Chicongo Honor Students are pussies. Why? (I’m glad you axed.) Baltimort Honor Students just achieved a quad-shooting with 3 killed. I did a Google search and came up with zero matches for a similar shooting in Chicongo. Soooooo pussies, I want to see 5 bodies lying in the same gutter this weekend… all breathless.
