Move the Goalposts!

Just when you think Chicago reached last year's homicide totals, the Department comes up with eight more killings from last year:
  • When Chicago reached 474 homicides for the year on Friday, it appeared the city had surpassed the toll for all of 2015.

    But Police Department officials suddenly announced Friday that their homicide count for the past year was wrong. Eight more homicides actually took place, bringing the total to 481 for 2015, they said.

    That meant the grim milestone had not been passed on Friday after all.
That's rich.

We've been posting for years that the Department was hiding homicides under McCompStat (and before that even), stretching the definition of "death investigation" so badly it was essentially a meaningless term.

Chicago Magazine did a three-part series telling everyone exactly how the Department was fudging crime stats and downgrading both property and violent crime.

It's been widely known for years that the FBI won't accept Chicago statistics when compiling their annual report because the Department lies so badly.

And now, when it looks like Chicago tallied a year's worth of homicides in just eight months, the Department magically discovers eight extra homicides that they "forgot" to count in 2015. Now everyone can feel good that the 2015 total will be surpassed in mid-September instead of 31 August.



We guess Special Ed and his Infamous Brass Band is hoping that somehow, there won't be a single killing the rest of the year.

This is genius. Every time we come close to last year's murder number they can just increase it.so that way we are never higher than last year.

Don't mind the other 50 homicides that were classified as accidental deaths or suicides.

That sketch, The Cheese Shop and The Dead Parrot are my favorite Monte Python bits.

This also reminded me when watching the movie BLINK on TV with a friend recently. In one scene a pair of Chicago cops unroll a body bag to remove a murder victim. My friend asked about that and I said that at the time this movie was made this was accurate. Cops did move bodies to the Cook county Morgue in squadrols. Then they started getting the upgrade to Sergeant's pay if they transported a body. That was about $25-30 apiece. Richie Daley couldn't stand the idea that coppers got a little extra for what was at times a simple delivery or a very unpleasant task.

So what does Daley and the Democommunists do. They get a outside civilian contractor to do the same job for about $900 a body. That's the we're broke City of Chicago for you.

More like the Feds won't take CPD numbers because crime has always been out of control in Chicago. Chicago crime would skew the feds numbers too much.

Someone should ask them how many bodies they found in 2012, 2013, and 2014?

If they found eight more in 2015, how many have they neglected to mention in the previous years?

By the way have they arrested anyone for all those murders?

When chicago reach 474 homicides [...] 8 more Homicides were discovered. Bring the total to 481.
474+8=482. Still fuzzy math.

Well has anyone else out there received calls from their units regarding Safe Passage on Tuesday.

Looks like Henny Penney screwed up the order by not having it out before the end of tour on Friday.
So on Saturday they started calling officers to remind them to be in uniform on Tuesday and report
to different locations.

Guess with all attention toward Overtime for VRI. Penny forgot all about school on Tuesday.

I know a few Bosses read the blog so why not ask yourself why did Penny resign or get stripped
a as a District Commander? Why did they reassign her to HQ? This is what you get for merit promotions.
Forget the fact she has never worked as a police officer in her life.

Now you have Escalante escaping in a few days, leaving the job to the incompetent ones.
Don't answer your phone this weekend.........

Chicago is a circus run by clowns freaking out on meth! And no one is watching the jungle close in around them.
I sort of expect to open up SCC one day only to read CPD has closed.

They corrected some numbers whoop-dee-doo.

Murders and Shootings committed on the expressways inside city limits still aren't included. So any stats issued by the CPD Brass are still Bullshit.

As such, the only real change is the amount of Bullshit they're feeding the public.

Never got a dime for going to the M.E.'s office, but bringing the body to the funeral home chosen by the family after stopping at a hospital to get the body pronounced?

I agree, pure genius.
How many more lost homicides will
they find to keep moving the finish like forward?
Nothing like hiding a few 0110's for a rainy
day, or a hot September.
What other crimes did they fail to count correctly?
How were those dismal clearance rates added up?
Does anyone still believe anything that
comes out of 35th street.
Will anyone be diciplined for the error?
Probably not as exempt staff at 35th
just made an honest mistake.
There probably isn't anything that is
given the scrutiny as much as the Homicide
numbers are given.
Just pathetic. And no media will call
out this bullshit and demand discipline!

Same here. I have to read the blog daily. I'd have withdrawals if I miss it. Not CPD, recently retired from a large West Coast department, but grew up in small town Illinois. It's always entertaining to see how the Democrats have screwed up Chicago, just as they have the entire left coast. I am so friggin' happy I'm retired.....our once great department is only a dried husk of what it used to be. Stay safe and may God and St Michael watch over you CPD and ISP!

Here is another thought or reason not to get your undies in a bunch over this. This scenario is not an uncommon experience. Suppose X is shot in year 1 and survives but is paralyzed. In year 1, it is not counted as a Homicide. In year 6, X dies from an infection related to a surgery to correct a condition linked to the shooting in year 1. The stats are now changed to reflect the Homicide because the State's Attorney decided to bring murder charges against the original shooter. Or this scenario: A baby dies and a parent is charged with SBS. Clearly a homicide. However, what if medical testing and scientific evidence shows something else? A stroke? The numbers change.
