Summer’s Final Scene

Posted on September 2, 2016

Raiders of the Lost Ark Final SceneLabor Day weekend signals that the end of summer is here and it’s time to put another shooting season into storage. Since the official shooting season kicked off on Friday, May 27th, we’ve tallied 247 homicides plus another 1,245 shot & wounded (and counting). Given that this weekend historically puts up double digit homicide numbers, be on the lookout for a pearl clutching 500th homicide soon.
