Again, Confusing Stats
- Three men are dead and at least 28 other people wounded from gun violence across the city since Friday night.
That was the Monday report - sounds like a mess of a weekend.
But here's the Tribune writing about Sunday night:
At least six people were shot across the city overnight, including a targeted attack this morning in the Marquette Park neighborhood, Chicago police said.The night of shootings follow a violent weekend that saw dozens wounded and seven killed...
So who has the correct definition of "weekend" according to the police stats? Seven dead sounds a bit more serious and three - 133% more serious. And if accurate, it made up the July shortage versus 2011 in one weekend.
Twenty-eight shot sounds like a bigger number than six shot overnight, but even six a night is turning out to be an average for Chicago.
