Sun Times Numbers Way Off

  • The 28-year-old man killed on her block Monday night helped push Chicago past a miserable milestone: 600 homicides so far this year — a 24 percent uptick compared to the same time last year, not to mention about 100 killings more than the homicide totals in New York and Los Angeles combined this year. has Chicago at 607, but that isn't the weird number:
  • Nonfatal shootings also are way up citywide. As of last week, more than 2,100 people had been wounded this year and survived, compared with about 1,400 people shot in the same time period in 2015.
2,100? has the total at 2,958, a difference of 800+ wounded.

We know you carry a lot of water for Rahm, but you just can't hide 800 shootings Fran. You might want to go back and check that press release from City Hall and 35th Street. Your threadbare credibility is ...well...shot.

2,958? That means 3,000 shot by Sunday.


Not 1,000, not 1,500, not 2,000, not even 2,500... THREE THOUSAND SHOT!

You've got to love the way Democrats fudge the numbers. They assume that everyone is as stupid as they are. In the interim, taxpayers are fleeing Cook County on a daily basis. Chitroit is becoming a reality faster than I thought possible.

NEVER NEVER EVER trust any kind of numbers government officals provide about ANYTHING.(or the FBI) They lie for their gain and equally as often their numbers are prepared by incompetent and ignorant people. One of my favorite scams is when they retroactively revise the growth of the ecomomy to something much less than they previously announced with great fanfare.

and think of all the free medical care doled out, what $10,000 per surgery? 10,000 x 3,000 = $30,000,000

I once had a professor call the states competing with lower taxes to lure businesses, the "race to the bottom" - I consider it just the opposite the "race to the top"

but that's how these liberals think .... they are country ruiners they are

The Sun Time and Fran didn't "miss" 800+ shootings - they're just lying to the general public on behalf of Rahm - as usual.

How do these so-called "reporters" look at themselves in the mirror? Lying, compromised scum = reporters (there are no journalists anymore)

Maybe we should call alderthief willie cocheran to ask his opinion opps maybe after FBI is done with another of "Chicago's very own" thieves! Which alderman is next, you cant be first but you will be next. maybe after trump takes office he can order a forensic audit of city hall-county-and of course state house this has to be cleaned up:

Adding to this lightfoot wants police to apologize to people of color:

some excerpts:

“If you haven’t read his speech, I recommend it to you. Very, very thoughtful. It’s been very well-received for the most part. Frankly, I’d like to see something like that happen here in Chicago. It would go a long way in helping all of our residents and frankly helping our police come together in a way that’s important,” Lightfoot said.

^^^^ how about the communities apologize to the police for all the killing and maiming? Apologize to the taxpayers for the billions wasted in police service and hospital care that they pay for!

That prompted Ald. Anthony Beale (9th), former longtime chairman of the City Council’s Police Committee, to make his own suggestion about ways to break down the racial barriers

“Have a lot of the squad cars integrated because I believe that we can learn from one another. If you are in a squad car for eight hours a day for 20 years with the same person who thinks like you, you have nothing to learn from one another,” Beale said.

“Hiring more people of color that reflect the communities they’re patrolling will go a long way,” he said. “But more importantly, having two individuals of different ethnicities together, they can learn from one another and maybe de-escalate certain situations when they go into communities.”

^^^^ We tried that before Eddie Johnson said at 1 time "people of color relate better to people of their own race, ok how about trying black coppers in black areas, for an experiment see how it works out. Partners to the citizens relate to each other and some if lucky stay with same partner it is a feeling of safety knowing how your partner will react when the dangerous encounters occur!

Lightfoot also expressed hope that changes are coming to police training which, until now, has been so “woefully insufficient,” the “only mandatory annual” requirement for police officers once they graduate from the police academy is firearms qualification that simply requires “firing 30 bullets into a paper target.”

^^^^ 1 thing agreed with, but then again they would have to build a state of the art range not the old Fred Flintstones bedrock type we have!

Lightfoot also renewed her calls for changes to the police contract. But she argued that, to some degree, the contract is “inflated in importance” because there are changes the city can make away from the bargaining table.
^^^^ Absolutely not Lori, bet you have a contract would you want it tampered with? Lori have you rode on hot calls say in englewood, and been in life or death situations with thugs? Until you and the other figure heads walk in a police officers boots please shut off the lights and go home,you have no idea. What are you doing about the over 1,000 more shot this year than last? Are you like the alderman that is worried about removing a Trump sign that is focus, but on the wrong asset!

By the way - Ald. Cochran is being investigated by the feds for misuse of campaign funds. Per Tribune.

Everyone is up in arms over the fact that homicides are over 600 and rising towards 700. If you want to see a "bunch" - Obama's phrase that pays - of chickens - news people and pols - running around the farm yard without heads, wait till next year when homicides approach 800 plus, after the POS realize, that the "fetal" police are just that, with no chance of being street stopped or caught with a gun. Homicides will continue to rise and shootings will continue to rise until pro-active police work returns to Chicago and I don't see that happening in the city's near future due to ACLU and DOJ oversight.

Hey SCC,

Us and the Trib are within <1% for total shootings and only off by a couple incidents when it comes to homicides. For the S-T to be off by ~28% either says typo, disastrous record keeping or being fed a bs stat.

Kinda off topic, but I regularly check, and I really need to wonder why all the multiple shootings that have happened this year aren't investigated by the Fed's. Even using 5 as a minimum number there have been 10 occurrences of at least 5 shot and one last week of 7. With 110 incidences of 3 or more.
Guess it's a federal case only when white folks do the shooting.

That number is off the mark. 2958 shot and wounded, with another 500+ victims at room temperature. The 3000 number was equaled around Labor Day weekend. shows the current stats as:

Week in Progress (10/16 – 10/22)
Total Shot: 45
Shot & Wounded: 38
Shot & Killed: 7
Total Homicides: 7

October to Date
Total Shot: 250
Shot & Wounded: 213
Shot & Killed: 37
Total Homicides: 39

Year to Date
Total Shot: 3511
Shot & Wounded: 2967
Shot & Killed: 544
Total Homicides: 608

2016 Shot Clock Status:
A shooting happens every 2:00
A homicide happens every 11:34

Even if the pace were to drop by 50%, with 73
days still to go in the year, that works out to an additional 438 people catching lead. That would put the number of gunshot victims in the mid-3900 range. A 50% drop in the homicide rate to one every 23 hours would still yield another 77 bodies.

Since the brass-o-meter is still spinning like Chevy Chase's Com Ed meter during Christmas vacation, the numbers might still end up around 4200 shootings with 700 homicides for the year- IF the mayhem were to slow by 33% with the colder temperaures.

Of course, cold weather elevates the overall risk of death by fire, and ARSON is now the #3 cause of suspicious deaths in RahmbieLand.

My last post stated very clearly....Fran will print the truth or close to it for 1 day and the next day she will revert to her usual bullshit lies. I right??? These liberal assholes can't help but lie. The truth to them is like narcan (naloxone) to a heroine addict. They hate that shit because it brings them down from their high. Same goes for truth and the mainstream media.

What perplexes me is how do liars like this creature think they can POSSIBLY keep their lies covered up? They are so incredibly juvenile. Anybody who has cared for a young child has likely had the experience of the kid telling a lie. When challenged, they double down and add to the whopper. It can get to the point where reality has been totally bypassed and they will STILL insist on the lie being true (nope, didn't eat that cupcake even though my mouth is covered with chocolate frosting, space aliens did it mom). That's what kids do until taught otherwise. These liberal idiots are exactly the same.

Do they REALLY think we won't notice that Obamacare is a clusterfuck? Do they REALLY think cops and firefighters and teachers won't notice when their pensions come up empty after all of their looting and lies? Do they REALLY think that they can continue to debase the dollar and lie about inflation and we will all be oblivious to the fact that our budgets are on life support? They seem to think that as long as they say good things, that good things must be reality and we'll believe them despite all evidence to the contrary.

Their lies have gotten so big that they are no longer even marginally credible. And still they lie. Just like a three year old does. When caught (like Hillary) they lie even more. There is no end to it, they are incapable of acting like adults and admitting any culpability or failure at any time, for any thing.

We've gone far, far beyond the emperor not having any clothes on.
