Statistics Say What Now?
No wonder no one can keep anything straight around here:
- Sun Times: 37 shot, 7 fatalities;
- Tribune: more than 20 wounded, 6 fatalities;
- Channel 2: 36 shot, 2 stabbed, 9 fatalities;
- Channel 5: 38 shot, 8 fatalities and 13 of the wounded were CPS honor roll students;
- Channel 7: 37 shot, 8 fatalities;
- Channel 32: 38 shot, 2 stabbed, 8 fatalities and a quadruple shooting (1 dead) at a southside McDonald's continuing the streak of violence plaguing the city since Friday.
Can't everyone get on the same page? Call the hospitals, call the morgue. And let's all agree on a specific time frame to narrow down the variations. School dismissal on Friday until midnight Sunday would seem fair.
