The March to 500 Continues

WBBM's weekend violence update confirms five killings in the city. If last Wednesday's number is correct (492) then we're hovering at 497 for the year. We noticed some of our commentators double counting.

Who will be 500? One unlucky citizen of this great city will be the unlucky winner of the ... Wait. what am i talking about? 98% of the 500 were scum bags dealing drugs or gang bangers up to no good. Stay safe.

Off topic: Quick question....

How is it that the guy who shot the Sgt in 004 last week got a 100k bond and the 2 guys who broke into Judge Ford's wife's (also a judge) car get a 500k and 350k bond respectively for burglary to auto and agg battery to a judge? I mean don't get me wrong I like Judge Ford, he's always been a class act, and the obvious is there them both being judges. I think this is a bit ridiculous...

Let's put this in perspective, In Ciudad,Juarez, Mexico, pop. 2 million, there have been over 700 murders already this year. So, compared to Jaurez, Chicago is looking pretty good.

It's official! All District Commanders are to confer with their Tact Lt and come up with a list of 6 POs to be dumped (2 from each team). The Tact Lt are supposed to do this without seeking input from the Tact Sgts in order to try and keep it a secret.

500, 600, 1000-- who cares. what has changed in the past 12 months. you got it, nothing. nobody knows who the boss is anymore. no contract. less police officers to handle more calls for service in the patrol division. worn out beat and rapid cars. broken pdt's. radio batteries that need to be replaced. i still go to work everyday and try to be positive. i am thankful that i have a job when many people have lost theirs. but did we really need to put 13,000 dollar cameras and 7000 dollar ticket writers in the cars before we took care of the other stuff first. merry xmas and happy new year to all.

a GOOD POINT, But we are NOT a 3rd World country with a massive Drug turf battle and political corruption.
OR ARE WE???

CITY OF CHICAGO DESIGNATED 3RD WORLD ENTITY!
1. Gov. Run by a warlord with competing factions vying for power.
2. Sub standard education
3. Lack of health care unless your the Elite.
4. Massive corruption and criminal enterprises running wild with Gov. approval.
5. 500 CIVILIANS A YEAR killed
6. THE PEOPLE HAVE NO SAY IN WHAT GOES ON WITH GOVERNMENT!!!
7. Armed militias controlling certain TURF's w/in City Limits.
OH SHIT!!!
CHICAGO IS A 3RD WORLD COUNTRY UNTO ITSELF RUN BY A DICTATOR.
I gotta move! Now if the POLICE started systematic round ups and tortured people we would be.... OH SHIT!!!

Holy #503 Batman!!!

A youthful innocent victimized by the out-of-control violence facing this city.

Our city leaders, police managers, and the criminal culture running wild in our streets -- they are solely responsible for this innocent's death.

Forgive them lord for they know not what they do...

All Lord give us the strength to endure this evil debauchery of stupidity and incompetency...

Protect our brothers and sisters who fight to protect law abiding citizens and visitors to our great city...

Lord give the common people the wisdom to see the truth wrapped by lies.

Lord brings us a new mayor and superintendent of police for 2009.

Amen.

Without going into detailed reading of everyone's post, I'll reply accordingly:

CLEAR will NOT show you the correct amount of homicides occurring during the year. Why? Because any incident in which the RD# pulled was for Agg Batt or Death Investigation STAYS that way. CLEAR is deliberately NOT updated by case management or the detective division precisely to keep the real number of homicides hidden from prying eyes.

Homie gets shot, dies 2 hours later, that's an aggravated battery, not a homicide according to CLEAR.

In order to find the most current count of homicides occurring, whether they be Agg Batts or DI's that become Homicides, you need to access the Murder database maintained by the detective division. Good luck finding it, for one, then good luck getting into it to see the records because it's NOT available in CHRIS_DWH or Clear tables. This database is maintained OFF the publicly available list of tables on a separate PC and is NOT running in Oracle. So once you find it, you then need an account & password to access it, and after that, you have to wade through the mess that it is to obtain the numbers you seek.

I can say this, we were at 496 on 20 December 2008, add to that anything we see on the news and add on the Agg Batts where pookie dies a few hours later and you're as close as you'll get to the real number.

I have no problem saying we're already at, or will definitely be OVER 500 by the end of this year. No Problem.
