2010 Numbers Go Up

  • An autopsy Thursday determined a 38-year-old man died of gunshot wounds after being shot in  2010 on the West Side, officials said.

    Trayon Carson, 38, died of complications of remote gunshot wounds, according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

    Carson, of the 1000 block of North Spaulding Avenue, was shot at 12:25 a.m. April 27, 2010, in the 1600 block of North Menard Avenue, in the city’s Austin neighborhood, according to the medical examiner’s office.
So does 025 get the number for this year or last?

UPDATE: District corrected

You know what would be an interesting chart? One that shows the running total of gunshot wounds AND the subsequent money spent at the Hospital to patch these people up.

No one is putting a real dollar amount on how much this costs the taxpayers on a monthly or yearly basis

We look at costs for policing, but we do not see the additional amounts from hospitalization costs.

There was one short column that spoke about "the average cost to treat a gunshot wound" and it was at least $250,000 (to $500,000).

When you start adding up EVERY week, that comes to a Heck of a lot of money.

The one weekend where there were 70 shot? Do the math:

70 x $250,000 = $17,500,000
or
70 x $500,000 = $35,000,000

THAT is some serious money - IN ONE WEEKEND.

No wonder our hospitalization and medical coverage is so high - we are paying for this. They aren't.

Is the original shooter now eligible for a manslaughter charge?

1000 N. Spaulding, isn't that just a few blocks SCC of where the west side homicide took place yesterday afternoon? What happen to the crystal ball unit? I believe they should have predicted the next murder.

The death is counted this year, the count is determined by date of death, not date of injury.

I'm sure all the bosses that cheated on their exams will come up with a great plan to combat crime in the city. After all they are the elite on the dept and full of police knowledge along with something else.

I'll bet your sorry you got rid of Denis Walsh. You really need him now. This is a D. Walsh specialty.
No one could handle or dispose of these better. CompStat didn't know when it had a good thing.

Proposing time limits on crime scenes as new ones appear over the old ones. Some one to greet you will be established on new crime scenes as they form.

This guy has it figured out.... The legacy costs for shooting victims are insane. A typical "trauma alert" at on of our fine hospitals is about $15-20k. That is what is costs the patient to come through the door. The first 8 hours of a patient that is shot in the "box" can easily be $50-100k after surgical expenses.

...and I don't think that covers the subsequent lifetime of medical care.

Walk east on Roosevelt Rd. approaching Austin and you start to see the wounded from the shooting war across the street, coming out two and three at a time in their wheelchairs.

That's where I turn around...

No-go zone.

Counts for the year he died. Can't be a murder till then. To that point its just another Chicago shooting. Bone up this might be a question one the detective exam.
