Numbers Pick Up
Ah, who are we kidding? No one thought anything of the sort. We just threw that out there yesterday because we heard Tom Skilling was stopping by and we wanted to raise his spirits a bit.
Anyway, the numbers went up, even with all the violence zones in full effect, the manpower at historic lows, crime cameras all down for maintenance, and McFlufferNutter personally checking on each and every foot post:
Six people have been killed and at least 15 others have been wounded so far in shootings across the city this weekend.
[...] At least 15 others have been wounded in shootings since Friday evening, including three women who were shot about 10:25 p.m. Saturday night by a male gunman who’d been turned away from a party in the 13200 block of South Vernon Avenue. None of the women suffered life-threatening injuries.
And the truly sad part?
- No one is in custody in any of this weekend’s shootings, according to police.
Twenty-one shot, zero in custody. Amazing.
