Who Gets Killed in Chicago?

  • Among the Sun-Times’ findings, based on a review of police and Cook County medical examiner’s reports, court files and interviews:

    • The vast majority of those killed in Chicago in the first half of this year — 90 percent —died from a gunshot wound.
    • Seventy-two percent were African-American men, their average age 29.
    • Four out of five had faced criminal charges in Cook County at some point, mostly for drug offenses; the leading cause of arrest in Chicago.
    • Two out of five had drug convictions.
    • More than a quarter had been convicted of a violent offense or illegal gun possession.
    • Domestic conflicts, many involving mental illness, were involved in at least 24 of the deaths.
    • At least four were killed by stray bullets. Others were shot while in the company of people who were targeted.
    • The reasons behind other killings remain a mystery to the police.
We don't know why they think this is original reporting - HeyJackass.com has been doing it better for a few years now, and they have all sorts of eye-catching graphs and breakdowns. They have sections for gender, race, and neighborhood. They track clearance rates, self-shot, shot-in-the-ass, and shot-in-the-junk.

One of our favorites is the "shot clock" tracking the average amount of time it takes for someone else to get shot - currently at just over two hours. But you aren't going to see that in the paper.

Sorry, but I don't read either Chicago paper anymore.

I am sick of the coverage on TV as well.

Statistics? Facts? I read SCC.

Looking at the stats, aren't there any white peoples in Chicago?
Only 18 out of the 334 people killed in the first six months were whites?

How could that be?

its obviously a black and brown problem in chicago. its not a white police officer problem. own it. statistics don't lie. the outrage is misplaced. but the chosen victimhood stance is a hard position to fight. the victim is always morally right. Never responsible, nor accountable. and forever entitled to sympathy. When we allow them to portray us as an oppressive occupying force, we will always lose the ideological "debate". But there is no debate when the liberal media controls the narrative with their chosen protected classes. The press irresponsibly yields a powerful sword. slicing through even the most obvious facts.
Troubled times ahead.

Well, no. Remain wholly behind the politically correct sequester.

That's why o'bama released "Non-violent felons, convicted of drug crimes" in this latest batch of thugs flooding the streets. Yet, some of the folk headed out the door had gun convictions with the drug sales.

Well, it's not 18 white people. If you check, it's broken down by black, Hispanic and all others. So the 18 is white, Chinese, indian, Arab, etc.

It's amazing to watch all these nitwits protesting in downtown Chicago over one shooting simply because it involves a Police Officer yet NOTHING over the other eight dead or 39 shot who were NOT shot by a Police Officer. Nothing. Not a peep. It speaks volumes about what the phony black live matter nonsense is really about and it ain't black lives.

How about a demographic breakdown that includes the race of the offender to race of the victim and criminal history of victims.

That 'be' because the majority of whites don't run in gangs shooting each other.

Newscasters are one of the biggest problems.
When they report Chiraq's shootings, do they mention who's doing the shooting? No, they evade the obvious.

Media doesn't head to the west/south sides during black on black killings, however, on the very rare occasions, when a CPO has no choice but to shoot a criminal, media flies to the scene.
Once their articles are posted, they subtly report the criminal is/was a victim. 'Another victim of police.'

Only the ignorant believe the print as Gospel-Truth.

On the other hand, more people, including liberals, are waking up. They realize why crime is so high and who is at fault.
As difficult as it is for them to admit, many are speaking out.

'IF' Mr. Trump wins the election, I pray he can do something to stop these asinine shootings. I also pray he is pro-police, unlike the current, um, president.

I agree with the previous post about ignoring the local media. The only good use of the Slum Times and the Fibune is lining the bottom of the bird cage. The TV media is even worse... giving interviews to these hater/ghetto rats who blame the police for their own failed existence.
I get my news here at SCC and Drudge. It saves me the time of having to sift through the layers of total bullshit.
Stay fetal (and thirsty) my friends!

It's sad that the media and the left actually portray everyone else at fault because they have white guilt. The truth is hiding the truth only harms these communities. Misleading them keeps them angry at the man and denies accountability. Let's invest in education, positive reinforcement, and a stable family life.

Hmmmmm I'd say "the community" has got some work to do when it comes to policing themselves when they "defund and disband" the police.

Yes, I've heard Trump speak-up for police; I've also heard obama vow to change and save US.
Sorry, I'm a tad skeptical, but over the years, politicians promised the 'world' to voters.
BTW, Trump voter, here.
