How to Spin the Data
HeyJackass.com shows everyone how it's done:
- Hey SCC - Since the honor students wouldn't stop shooting on a school night, it took a little longer than usual to compile the final numbers.
Weekend: 8 killed (5 shot, 3 stabbed), 44 wounded
Last year: 1 killed, 15 wounded
September now stands at 42 killed and 197 wounded. Last September tallied 42 killed (inc 2 PO involved) and 154 wounded.
Expect the month end press release to focus on year to date homicide numbers and to ignore September and the increase in shootings.

That's quite an increase over last year's same timeframe - 800% in killings and nearly 300% in maimings. And there's still a full 24 hours to go in September and Englewood has been on fire since Friday. CompStat is going to be amusing this week.
