5 Killed in 12 Hours
Stuff like this has to have McCompStat pulling his hair out. We can't react to any of this:
- On Thursday, Haynes was shot dead in the street while trying to stop two guys from the neighborhood from a fight over a stolen necklace near 116th and Vincennes, less than a block from his home. The 22-year-old was one of five men who were shot and killed over 12 hours in Chicago. So far this year, there have been 302 murders, a 30 percent increase from 2011. In the spring, the number of murders was 66 percent higher than the previous year.
There's that "decrease in the increase" again, none of which helps Rahm. And on a Thursday?
Who has the number of shooting victims. That would be a telling statistic. So would the clearance rate.
