Weekend Wrap-up

Posted on October 14, 2013

leprechaunCool, crisp fall weather has done more to keep a lid on things than millions of dollars in police overtime. Plus the usual lousy accuracy helps as well. The weekend ended with just one (1) killed and just eight (8) others wounded.

A breakdown of the 9 shootings shows:

  • 8 Males
  • 1 Female
  • 25.2yo average age
  • All in their 20s
  • 2 shot in the ass
  • 11% shot-to-kill ratio
  • 6 neighborhoods
  • 3 shot on Team Austin
  • Team Englewood on a bye week

Comparing to recent past weekends:

  • 10/4 weekend: 4 dead, 12 wounded
  • 9/27 weekend: 9 dead, 35 wounded
  • 9/20 weekend: 1 dead, 15 wounded
  • 9/13 weekend: 2 dead, 9 wounded

With a very fall-like week ahead things may finally start to drop into a lower gear and get ready for the long winter grind.

Keep it short and to the point. Name calling and similar stupidity will be deleted. If you insist on writing several paragraphs, start your own blog.

    One person per day killed and this is known as a “good” week. If my counts are correct, 109 have been murdered in the City since the evil George Zimmerman was acquitted. Where is Jesse, Al and the gang with their protests and outrage???

      It’s 136 if counting from 7/14 onwards but your point is valid nevertheless.

    Murder rates drop off in the fall because gang bangers are busy storing up fat for the long Chicago winter and preparing their dens for winter hibernation.
