22 Shot, 1 Dead in Quiet Weekend

And by quiet, we mean it was quiet on the "indoor homicide" front. Outside, it was a bloody freaking mess:
  • At least 22 people were wounded in shootings around Chicago roughly between noon Saturday and noon Sunday, including a man who died Sunday morning after he was shot in the head, police said.

    Nearly half of the 15 separate shootings appear to be gang-related, including the fatal incident, Chicago police Superintendent Jody Weis said Sunday. At least two of the other victims have refused to cooperate with police, "which makes the job of our detectives ... far more difficult," Weis said.

We do have a question though. This incident is going to cause some head scratching at HQ:
  • At 8:11 p.m., a 47-year-old man who is possibly homeless, was shot in the right arm while standing on the street on the 29200 [sic] block of North Milwaukee Avenue, a Shakespeare district police captain said. He was taken to Norwegian-American Hospital in “stable” condition. The suspect fled on foot and no one was in custody Sunday.
If he's homeless (or apartment-less as our Patrol Specialist used to say - he didn't earn a house), his "outdoors" is effectively his "indoors," even if it's a box, underpass or bridge, and is his shooting therefore "preventable" under the new J-Fled reporting system?

And remember, every barbecue shooting Monday falls into the "outdoor" category. Watch yourselves as the beer starts flowing around noon and continues well into the night.

No telling what spurred the shooting of the 'possibly homeless' man, but given the general aggressiveness my own family has experienced downtown from homeless beggars (some instances bordering on being attempted muggings) you have to wonder if Henry the Hobo didn't get rowdy with the wrong average Joe or Jane who packs heat in spite of the laws and found himself with a dose of lead as a result of grabbing, pushing or aggressing upon the wrong person...

If so, file this in the "Who Fucking Cares" folder.

Really, I used to be sympathetic to 'the homeless'. Enough time dealing with them myself- not to mention the aggravation my wife has to endure from them with her working downtown- all sympathies are gone.

All the talk of how many homicides Chicago has and what the homicide clearance rate is. How many shootings are there and whats that clearance rate?

The superintendent and mayor only talk to the news about how many people died from getting shot, but isn't getting shot in Chicago bad in of itself? Some of us citizens want to know how many people are really getting shot in Chicago.
Can anyone help shed some light on those numbers?

OT. How about Aldercreature Dixon giving a "verbal permit" to Ceasefire to hold a street party at 15th/St Louis last night. 2-300 anti-police gang bangers led by Rev Robin Hood (rat) and Derrick who antagonize police and video tApes it. Didn't j-fled say he didn't want impromptu street parties. This one had a stage a dj and rappers the whole bit. The ballless Capt EV refused to shut them down and gave in to Dixons "verbal permit" bs
this is the same alderscum thatade police breakup a victory outreach meeting at 17/central Pk because the 15 people there were causing havoc and she called the 1st deputy to get it done Immediately.
I guess Ceasefire donates. Victory outreach doesn't.
Oh yea. Thanks for nothing Capt V.

Keep giving these SSI, WICK, Earned income credit, Section eight, Circuit Beaker, LINK, Christmas in July and all the other programs. These able body people hangout all day and night and drain the city's resources. That's the real problem. Behind every criminal is a house of programs supporting them. Where is their drug testing?

We need to publicize what every last one of these animals costs the taxpayer.
Daley loves telling them how much we cost.
Your neighbors need to know what the average victim/offender costs from the time he enters the CPS system until he is shot and either killed or disabled.
The tab for each of these predators easily hits the 2-3 million dollar mark if you add up police and EMT services needed, court costs, ER, rehab, longterm nursing care, meds, shrinks, incarceration.
Now add in the cost of thisvctim/offender's crimes against other shitbirds or real people, and your talking some serious money that equals the entire budget of small towns. Multiply by the numbr of Agg. Bats per year and you should have a ballpark figure.

Ok,

Fact. If we had medical technology from the 1970's Our murder rate would be at least 5 x's of what it is now. But we have some of the best hospitals & Dr's in this nation. This means they are keeping people alive. which typically they wouldn't have survived 30-40 years ago. Agg Bats (People shot) are way up ever since Jody has taken charge. Is it Jodys fault? Of coarse now. but most police officers are "laying low." With camaras, scum wanting to put you on youtube, news, corupt aldermen/mayor/county/liberal judges tossing out cases exc... Lot of policeman say this just isn't worth it anymore. therefore less traffic stops, street stops and less arrests. all contributes to crime going up.

Now don't go believing that Jody guy that is controlled by the 5th floor when he tells you crime is down.

I just hope all those who got shot are not honor roll students of the CPS!

Honour or Honor is the evaluation of a person's trustworthiness and social status based on that individual's espousals and actions.

I'm not sure you can find honor on Chicagos streets in this day and age.....

The class assignment in composition was to write about something unusual that happened during the past week.

Little Shortshanks got up to read his. "J-Fled fell in the well last week - " he began. "Good heavens," shrieked Mrs. Kroop, the teacher.
"Is he all right now?"

"He must be," said little Shortshanks. "He stopped yelling for help yesterday."

-----------------------------------
EXCELLENT POINT - Should also point out how much entitlement money (food stamps, aid, etc.) is paid out to each neighborhood vs. how much taxes are paid out by the same.

All of these numbers are available - you just have to have someone to put them together.

People on BOTH sides should realize what some people collect AND what others have to pay out for them EVERY MONTH.

There is no such thing as a free lunch - OR a free phone for that matter. (How many have free phones supplied by the Lifeline Project? bet you didn't even know that one existed)

WHO CARES! If the POLITICIANS really wanted to help us it would come in the form of CAPITAL PUNISHMENT for anyone convicted of being a GANG MEMBER and shooting ANYONE even if they DIE. We need to combat the problem of single parent families who don't want to properly raise their kids that eventually become gang members and KILL people. Lets start this off by getting rid of POLITICIANS who DON'T WANT US ARMED and make excuses for these kind of people. Instead of putting LABELS on people who oppose anyone who is a gang member or drug dealer lets start combating the problem.

As a citizen I would like someone to ask and challenge the Mayor to explain why I am much more likely to be shot in Chicago, where guns are banned than a similar sized city such as Dallas where citizens can actually be licensed to carry a firearm.

These shootings are due to the suburban kids texting their suburban friends and telling them to head to the south side to shoot someone or be shot.

Wilding almost occurred in 016, far north part of the District. At least 7 males, 5 black, 2 hispanic, 16-20 yrs. of age were all over the alley, some in the gangways, many on bikes lurking on the 7100 block of Mason. An off-duty cop rounded the corner and caught them in a huddle, with a couple running out of a gangway. They must have been "spooked", they took off, fleeing in different directions. Definitely not from the neighborhood. I am glad it was an off-duty who startled them, not some little old lady. Keep your eyes and ears open, no matter where you live!

Let's say you pull someone over for a minor TV. You ask them if they have any hand grenades, bazookas, or guns in the car? The individual says yes, a hand gun for personal protection. After securing the gun and the individual, you run him, and he comes back clear. Do you take him in, or are you going to cut him?
