August Falls off the Pace

As predicted, it was going to be difficult if not downright impossible to keep up with last year's number of killings.

August 2016 set a torrid pace of 3 killings a day. In 6 days this year, August hasn't even averaged one a day.

700 is still within reach, but difficult. Check out (and their archives) for current totals and year to year comparisons.

Eventually, most scores get settled. Checks & balances is all. New norm might be 600-700 a year.

Are the shooters hands slipping in the Summer heat?

Their aim is pretty poor.

7% in August, 17% for 2017.
If they were as good as they were earlier in the year, it would have been nine dead.

Eighty Percent of the month is left.

A couple of determined shooters and Chicago will be right back in the groove.

New shooters are learning the craft.

Has been a very mild spring and summer, so it's amazing that 2017 kept up the pace for as long as it did.

Just proves the number of police has no effect on the number of murders. The CPD has less manpower now than they did last August and this August murders are down. There were weekends where the CPD had an additional 1300 police on the street with initiatives like additional OT, cancelled do's and murders increased even with the extra manpower. These fools kill each other when they decide to and no number of police will change that

The final push for Jugghead's legacy.
An estimated 1400 murders in two years and the community is satisfied with what he's done so far, around 1100 mostly community murders.
The Right Man for the Right Time™ bridge-building community activist Special Ed already surpassed any previous Superintendants 3 year murder stat average.
Where's the uproar from City Hall and the community, like they had for Gmac's head?
Hypocrites and Liars.

No Stops - Stay Fetal, it's Rahm's problem that he & Jugg continue to ignore.

social justice politico's in Illinois arelooking to solve the problem of Aug's "way too low" murder rate in Chicongo.

If this truly is a crappy "commenarative" holiday instead of a "real" holiday with pay, then the beautiful people of Chicongo should take to the streets in a fiery, lethal Rage on account of this
"commenarative" insult...
Former President Obama is being honored with a new state holiday in his former state of Illinois.

Illinois Gov. Bruce Rauner (R) signed a measure Friday to make Aug. 4 “Barack Obama Day” in the state, according to NBC Chicago. The holiday will be celebrated each year on Obama’s birthday beginning in 2018.

The day is “set apart to honor the 44th President of the United States of America who began his career serving the People of Illinois in both the Illinois State Senate and the United States Senate, and dedicated his life to protecting the rights of Americans and building bridges across communities.”

Senate Bill 55 was passed by both state houses with no votes against it.

Rauner praised the idea behind the bill earlier this year after a previous version, which would have made the day a legal state holiday, failed. The new holiday is commemorative.

700 is not coming gentlemen, especially with colder weather on the way soon. I dont think you will see much above 600 imo.

The dancing bitch will play this off as progress.

Oh, and fuck you rahm.

Year-to-year trends Asshat. That's the only number we've ever said matters and we've been calling out the morons at Predictive Analytics, the Crystal Ball unit, the Superintendent's office and News Affairs for years now. We told them their constant harping on week-to-week trends was going to bite them in the ass and we were right just about every single time. You notice they stopped as homicides climbed past last year's numbers?

Why was that do you think?

But here you are, back again with the tired old saw about "crime is down!" and "August numbers show whatever...." You must be attached to Special Ed's or Navarro's ball sack purely by suction at this point.

To post8/07/17 1120 AM: The reason WHY there is no community uproar is very simple. Rahm is giving the store away to the Black Caucus. The Alderman/Alderwomen call up the present Superintendent and tell him what he or she wants. It is their call on who are the Sergeants, Lieutenants, the Commanders, the Deput Chiefs etc. These Alderman/Alderwomen now have the power of who runs their wards. But here is the dirty little secret: They are going to stick it in his rear the next election. They will abandon him and what would he have accomplished. He ruined the Police Department along with the city. It is a shame
