Summer’s Final Shoot-o-Rahm-a

Posted on August 31, 2018

Closing Scene from The Blues BrothersLabor Day weekend means yet another Summer Shooting Season is drawing to a close. Since the first pitch on Friday, May 25th, we’ve tallied 192 homicides plus another 900+ shot & wounded (~10% less than last summer). Because this particular weekend tends to be stupider than most, we’ll no doubt be adding to those totals before it’s all over.

2017 Labor Day weekend: 7 killed, 40 wounded
2016 Labor Day weekend: 13 killed, 53 wounded
