Under 500?

Depends who's doing the counting. has the total at 513. The media won't touch that number because it flies in the face of Groot's desire to keep it under 500 as the Slum Times reports:
  • When Mayor Lori Lightfoot met with top Chicago Police Department officials a week ago, she had a number in mind: 500.

    Lightfoot pressed the police brass on what they intended to do to keep the 2019 body count in Chicago below 500, police sources say.

    As of Tuesday evening, the police department’s murder count for the year was 492. Officials say they’re hopeful that total won’t surpass 500 by the time the new year begins at midnight.
And to curry favor with Groot, the media will allow this to stand, even knowing that nearly a dozen death investigations are pending re-classification sometime during 2020 when no one pays attention to last year's total.

Some comparisons - here's Los Angeles numbers:

And some from New York (thanks to our StatGuy):

Chicago can nearly match both New York and LA combined....and there is no way Groot wants that tied to her progressive agenda, so it just won't be mentioned or the total will just be "massaged" gently to make them look more attractive.

Happy New Year
Thanks for all you do!

About 3 months back went for 525 +/- 5 was a tad too optimistic. When dust settles will probably be around 518.
Going for 515 for next year. Get you picks in early before the good #'s are taken.
Only using Hey Jackass #'s.

Stay Safe and Think of Your Family

So here is why people are leaving Illinois.

The politicians who are elected are lying to the public.
The appointed superintendent And chiefs are lying to the public.
Then the media who are suppose to ask the questions just accept the lies!

It’s just the way this state county and city work.
No one will challenge to status of lies over truth!

Happy New Year SCC!

492 is the murder number limited to CPD's jurisdiction. 513 is the homicide number only limited to the city's boundaries which will match the CCME's count and will rise over the coming days, weeks, months, etc...

In any event, the stenographers have been told their number and that's what they'll go with.

As time goes by being on this job, you sort of lose perspective about what the numbers mean. I was reading an article about how Baltimore and Chicago are soft on crime and thus have high homicide numbers.
And then I read the post about 020 having no murders and 011 leading the city again. What is 020 missing that 011 has to spare?
These things get me thinking that maybe there needs to be a new metric for comparing murder statistics. As murders are are mostly black on black crimes, perhaps we can examine how a city does on the number of homicides per 100,000 black population.
Some quick calculations:( I am drinking, so these may be off)

City Murders Population #of blacks murders per 100k blacks
New York 311 8,175,133 2,228,145 13.95
Chicago 513 2,695,598 913,009 56.19
Philadelphia 356 1,526,006 686,870 51.83
Houston 210 2,099,451 594,000 35.35
Detroit 271 679,685 535,900 50.56
Memphis 190 646,889 414,928 45.79
Baltimore 347 620,961 403,998 85.89
Los Angeles 252 4,029,741 402,448 62.62
Washington DC 163 601,723 314,352 51.85
Dallas 209 1,197,816 308,087 67.84

That is the top 10 cities in US by number of black population.

If the numbers are correct, it looks like New York may be doing something right, LA should probably not be popping off so much.. most everyone else is in the same ballpark

I suppose I could see how many of the murders are black offenders/ black victims/ etc.. but I am almost out of beer...perhaps some stats for a future comment

Now my good neighbor friend, Mister Charlie Beck, went East
to Chiraq to be the 'head' man. Now I'm told it's just the
opposite in Chicago (er, I mean Chiraq) because the Mayor
wants to keep the counts low. The only reliable source is

transfer the '4-Star-Bars' to the new Chief to save money.
Quite the opposite, we let the departing Chief keep his
"bars", caps, and other military memorabilia as keepsakes.
Some guys wear them on their new jobs, even if they find
employment at WalMart. Some play dress up and use them
at Halloween parties. In any event, we realize that those bars
can feel as heavy as the weight of the world, and in the words
of a stone loser NFL coach, "We respect that."
A scared universal bond between Chiefs and bars. Indeed.

500 is just a number. You have a state's attorney who changes state law to what she thinks it should be and doesn't want to put anyone in jail. 13 people shot in one incident, how many children shot in past few months. The offenders are quite often out of jail early from a previous case or out on bond on another case. Keep people in jail and the numbers will go down more.

Ch. 32 had the number at 509 stating that they didn't count the justifiable homicides but all others. And of course that does not include the death investigations as you pointed out. With all the CPD high technology implemented over the past year or so, "juking" the numbers for the new decade should be no problem at all. Just like they are now claiming a 56%+ murder clearance rate until they explain that the number includes clearances from past years. When applied to only 2019, we're back around 25%. Whether it is crime or politics, truth is always the first casualty.

Every politician, evert liberal voter made this possible. Want it to stop. Only way will be a massive Crack down on crime and jailing those responsible for a very very long time. But that would mean jails full of people of color
Or since they are the ones committing the vast majority of violent and non violent crimes. No stomach for that then STFU about how sad the killings are. So want to stop it. First step is throwing Kim and Prickwinker out of office. Ball in your court gonna play?

Rape or any serial assault crime mandatory 10 years with 40 for anything involving underage assault. Finally three strikes and you gone for life for ANY violent convictions. That is how you make the city safe again. That is what I call restorative justice. Absolutely quarter given to any criminals no matter the age.

"Killing crime on paper" is a Chicago favorite technique in keeping crime to the level that meets the Mayor's requirements. From Groot, to Murder Mayor Rahm to the blubbering idiot Daley. If you don't think that so, take a ride some night on the Red Line.
