Up to Eight

  • A man in his 50s died after being shot Sunday evening in the South Side Woodlawn neighborhood just before 6 p.m. in the 6600 block of South Blackstone in what may have been a drive-by shooting, police said. He was the eighth person to be killed in violence in the city this weekend.

    The man suffered a gunshot wound to head and was taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 6:38 p.m., according to the Cook County Medical Examiner’s office.

A rough count of homicides puts it around 487. That might be subject to change, but 500 is just over the horizon. 515 is a real possibility for the year.

Obviously, McStreetlightMarksman has failed...badly. CompStat is being thoroughly discredited in New York, Milwaukee, Cleveland and other places. Crime isn't down, especially violent crime. The fact that Chicago cannot even guarantee the safety of tourists visiting our town so Rahm can empty their wallets is a statistic to be ashamed of.

With the exception of a midweek 40, pretty decent temps for the next week. It is December, after all. 515 is definitely within reach.

"cannot guarantee the safety of tourists"??? You mean those young black youths running aimlessly up and down Chicago Avenue Saturday night wasn't a marching band welcoming holiday shoppers?! That explains parents scooping up their offspring and running for cover in terror.

To all those gleefully rubbing their hands at the rising count, remember this. Until they refer shootings to callback (which they probably already do in certain cases), there is at least one police officer (probably more) responding to that call and heading into a situation where an asshole with a gun has used it and probably wouldn't think twice about using it again on the responding officer(s). Just don't respond? Sure, but then that one "misguided" officer (and maybe others) goes in alone because he still thinks that's his job. I could give a rat's ass about the majority of these ghetto homicide victims (tomorrow's offenders), but in thirty years I've been to way too many police funerals. I don't claim to have an answer, but it seems that it would be in OUR best interest to somehow slow this shit down. Fuck the communities and the evil spawn they breed.

the streetlightmarksmans is a genius
he just noticed that violence at gang funerals
now it is crystal clear why mayor aurbach hired him he figured it out with out any help too now he does get a little ruffled when you ask him about the 509 murders and the year is not over yet must be because we mind those pesky #'s and can't see the "decrease in the increase"

2359 hours on 31 Dec 12 the count will be 519.

I also predict the yearly Reverend Paul Hall purpouted burglary will be filed on 19 Dec 12 at 1110 hours with maximum television coverage.

We should have no problem hitting 500. Anyone know what Vegas has the odds at now? I heard chicago violence is one of the most exciting things to watch in the sports books. They have all the local chicago news channels on the board. Place your bets. The over/under should be around 505.

It's all the Superintendent's fault.

That's the ticket.

I hope we reach 500 and beyond. Then maybe 300 would realize that it's not the lack of, "putting hands on people", that's the problem!!

I have an idea that would reduce Chicago's homicide rate to near-zero.

Simply remove the "west side" and the "south side" from the official Chicago land mass ... and make them separate townships/villages with their own city governments, etc.

These two new towns would compete for the highest homicide rates in the nation, while in the "new" Chicago, this would probably become one of the safest cities of its size!

There is to be no more joking around in the 011 District, especially on 2nd watch. This will apply to outside units who are in the station as well.

Any heard joking around will have a Rule 14 Violation placed against them.

No more joking around. I mean it!

Can anyone guess what white shirt we are referring to?
