Chances of Getting Shot

  • If you and another person get arrested together in Chicago, you’re both part of a loose network of people with a high risk of getting shot in the future, Yale University researchers say in a newly published study.

    Only 6 percent of the people in Chicago between 2006 and 2012 were listed on arrest reports as co-offenders in crimes, the study says. But those people became the victims of 70 percent of the nonfatal shootings in the city over the same period.

    The study, called “Tragic, but not random: The social contagion of nonfatal gunshot injuries,” was published in the January 2015 issue of Social Science & Medicine. It shows the risk of becoming a gunshot victim in Chicago is “more concentrated than previously thought,” according to Andrew Papachristos, one of the authors.

    More than ever, the Chicago Police Department is borrowing ideas from academics like Papachristos to fashion anti-violence strategies. For instance, the department used his social-network theories to generate its own list of at-risk people.

    Police Supt. Garry McCarthy believes that list is helping his beat officers concentrate on those people most likely to become shooting victims — or to shoot someone else.
An attempt to build a usable tool. This is actually intelligent. Of course, this study points out a number of uncomfortable truths, the main one being that this over-reliance on Contact Cards for people that aren't part of these criminal networks are truly a waste of time. Then there's this: 
  • Such social network analysis allows the manpower-strapped Chicago Police Department to “discern who’s at risk rather than casting the net really wide,” he said.
    "manpower-strapped"? That damn shortage that everyone and their brother sees, except Rahm and Garry.

    And this one:
    • And as was previously known, race was a key risk factor in getting shot, the study noted. For every 100,000 people, an average of one white person, 28 Hispanics and 113 blacks became victims of nonfatal shootings every year in Chicago over the six-year study period.

      But Papachristos and his team sought to go beyond a racial explanation for nonfatal shootings. They were trying to explain why a specific young African-American male in a high-crime neighborhood becomes a shooting victim, while another young black man in the same neighborhood doesn’t, the study said.
    Here's the SCC summary of the study - it took six minutes, not six years:
    • If you engage in criminal enterprises, you stand a good chance of getting shot
    • If you hang out with people who are criminals, you might get shot
    • If you hang out with people who have a familiarity with guns, no moral compass, no conflict resolution skills and criminal intent, you might get shot
    • This subset of a "social network" is comparatively small to the entire neighborhood it interacts with, but is supported in the main by a large portion of the neighborhood because it is the economic engine of the 'hood.
    • Oh, and if you brush up against this "social network," as in my cousin, my play-cousin, my brother, my uncle, etc., you might be one of those "innocent victims" that aren't really that innocent.
    Of course, this study summary isn't free - Rahm and Garry can have a check made out to "Bearer" and we'll take care of the rest.

    This ties in with the moldy chestnut that anti-gunners love to use:

    "If you own a gun you're more likely to shoot someone you know."

    As if owning a firearm magically makes you want to shoot your friends. Criminals shoot criminals and this study bears that out.

They are going to put SWAT back in uniform and back to districts. If they need SWAT officers they will respond from the districts. This is BS!! I worked very hard to prepare for SWAT.

    Thanks for this excellent academic study.

    Once in a blue moon, PC Liberal/Left Universities, Liberal media actually produce something honest, helpful.

    The Black sociologist James Q. Wilson produced articles called "The Broken Window" theory - which made the honest, common sense argument that police and community groups should not ignore quality of life issues like broken windows, graffiti, panhandling as it puts out the idea/truth that laws aren't enforced and crimes escalate up to hard drug dealing, assault, murder.

    It's only slightly below the surface, but the findings are that lower class Blacks, Hispanics are doing all the negative things from broken windows, up to drive by shootings/murder.

    You know would be nice? Having squad cars in the districts. Never enough cars on all watches. Sometimes you will sit and wait for several hours. Other times they will double u up on days.

    No computers in the squads what so ever. We have to take information on scene and the relocate back to the district to make the report.

    What would even be nicer??? If FOP would hold a news conference letting the tax payers know how screwed up the police department is. Dean what are you going to do about our deplorable working conditions?

We all know how data is usually biased and twisted at the preference of the numbers cruncher but it still will be used...either for you or against you. We do need studies like these to fight on that level, like it or not. I don't care how much of a joke they are, how many commies go there...them repeating important themes we already say gives those idea credence so when we use it we can point to an outside souce that benefits nothing from making these statements...and say they came to this conclusion after research. Nobody is asking a street cop or any other rank and file employee anywhere anything unless they are measuring perception.

    CHICAGO - Illinois State Police (ISP) officials are investigating a shooting that occurred near the Shell gas station located at 55th and Wells, next to the Dan Ryan Expressway at 8:55 p.m., Saturday, February, 7, 2015.

    An ISP trooper identified an occupied stolen vehicle at the Shell gas station through a license plate check. The trooper initiated a traffic stop in the parking lot of the Shell gas station. The trooper attempted to make contact with the sole occupant, the front seat passenger, a 17 year old male juvenile. The suspect passenger exited the stolen vehicle and fled the scene on foot. The trooper chased the suspect in a foot pursuit for approximately 1000ft north on Wells, during which time the suspect fired a single shot at the trooper. The trooper returned fire once. The suspect fell to the ground and was taken into custody by the trooper. The suspect's gun was recovered. No injuries were reported as a result of the gun fire.

    The Cook County State's Attorney's Office was contacted and approved charges of Attempted Murder of a Police Officer, Aggravated Discharge of a Firearm, Aggravated Unlawful Use of a Weapon, Criminal Trespass to a Vehicle and Aggravated Assault. The suspect was transported to Cook County Juvenile Detention and will appear for a bond hearing on Monday, February 9, 2015.

    The identity of the driver of the stolen vehicle is still pending investigation. No further information is being released at this time.

    Any officer who looked up the case report for Mayor Emanuel's son getting robbed is going to be in deep trouble. Expect to be suspended without pay for three days. Also expect this to be on your record forever.

    Ooooooh, the dreaded Permanent Record.

    Success and money shouldn't correlate to each other. Look at the millions or billions in human smuggling and narcotic trade. Look at the money the terrorists make on the black market. nonymous said...

    Tell that to my son. He is a graduate from Yale. He runs his own hedge fund. He makes more money in one year than most average folk will make in a lifetime.

    The corollary is if today's victim is dead he was yesterday's offender.

    Hope he's generous with his parents.

    Unfortunately, I haven't met one HF manager who doesn't remind me of Rahm. Hope he's an exception.

    Not a cop

    SCC I'm pissed!! A very reliable source at 35th said the SWAT list will be scratched. It seems certain SWAT crybabies on the team have filed a lawsuit for D-2 pay and the city doesn't want to add more police officers to SWAT. They are going to put SWAT back in uniform and back to districts. If they need SWAT officers they will respond from the districts. This is BS!! I worked very hard to prepare for SWAT. I am willing to sign a waiver for any extra pay or a take home car.

    Told you so about 3 weeks ago. Welcome back to HBT days. Careful what you wish for.

    If he reads SCC, humility is his watchword.

    You should be proud. Many kids who are very smart and work hard could never afford to get into an Ivy League school. Just ask Obama how he and his wife got in.

    >>>These studies don't ever funnel back to white shirts who make policy.

    Remember the stations security study of BEaCuelo?

    Schools donate big cash!
    Just like body cameras will save the NOT-guilty criminals.

    FOP needs a study on how much weight a person can carry of equipment on duty.
    Back problems?
    Chasing criminals?
    getting up from seated positions?
    smaller frame women?

    The Bea Cuello study went nowhere because any station built during the Richie Daley Rein was primarily concerned with profits for the connected contractors and minority set asides. The politicians wanted to provide the public with an open park-like campus and the physical security for those who worked there and their property was of very minor concern. So what we got was concrete boxes that crack in a high wind or a loud fart. These boxes have great glass fronts that will become lethal hail if a bomb ever goes off in front. The parking and the entry security and CCTV were all slipshod.

    As far as carrying heavy loads I was a revolver cop and always carried two guns, lot of ammo and all the toys and worked the public housing projects. So thirty plus years left me with two replace knees and a screwed up lumbar spine. Body armor need to be incorporated so that it helps shift the load off the hips. Wearing tactical suspenders UNDER body armor could help.

    Stay Safe. A frequent back message by your significant other would also help.

    Places like Yale university, U Cal Berkeley , the national news media, Hollywood are never going to turn Red State, patriot Conservative - never happen.

    So, we must encourage small ways , productive things where Liberal Left people and places actually do something sane, positive, given racial realities, immigration realities, Muslims etc.

    In both Holland and France, gays are now supporting populist, nationalist parties - the key issues are crime and Mass Muslim immigration.

    White Gays don't much like being terrorized by criminal Blacks, Muslims or just living in extremely anti Western, anti gay Islamic societies.

    My take is that when New York acuity went down and out , criminal anarchy under admin kinds in the early 1990s , New York Jews and Gays also went for Guliani, law and order. These two groups were once considered the most hard core Liberal Leftists.

    The Crown Heights Brooklyn Pogrom where Sharpton led mobs of Blacks to "kill the Jews" - this changed the voting habit is of New York Lib Jewish voters.

    THIS!

    M/Fer laid out at Ferdinand & Springfield with a third eye (complete with powder burn) and the smell of burnt cordite still in the air...

    20 to 30 assholes put heir hands in their pockets, rolled their eyes to the back of their empty skulls and said "Huh?" when the po-leece axed "Whodunit?

    Two assholes were boxing over the right to sell curbside urban pharmaceuticals at that spot.

    ...One apparently took umbrage at the ass-whoopin' he was taking and upped wit' dat strap...

    >Pop!<
    And the rest is history.

    Of course the spectators were salty about the earlier than anticipated arrival of da po-leece.

    No time to rob Mistuh Dead Shit-Head of the $1K, a pack and fully loaded pistol he had on his deceased person.

    Yeah.
    They don't see shit when it's THEM but when they're in danger of catching a good hair-combing from a copper or an upright citizen, m/fers suddenly have x-ray vision, the ability to see around corners and jump into/out of space-time portals accessible/visible only to them.

    An actual contract with society is for you muthafuckahs with compelling rules to abide by...
