St. Valentine’s Weekend

Posted on February 14, 2020

Bodies From St. Valentine's Day MassacreAs of today, this month has already tallied 25 homicides, which is three and a half times what the massacre tallied. Last year we saw the equivalent of 74 St. Valentine’s Day Massacres but we doubt any of those homicides will become part of Chicago lore quite like the original.

Final Stupidity Tally: 4 killed, 25 wounded
2019 weekend tally: 2 killed, 9 wounded
2018 weekend tally: 7 killed, 21 wounded
