One of my friends at Chicago PD anonymously sent me the Chicago Police Detailed Situation Report from August 8th, the deadliest day in the Windy City in 13 years per the Chicago Tribune.
The Detailed Situation Report details the victims of violence at each incident along with personal information including their criminal history, details of what happened as investigating officers could determine, and also gives suspect information where it is available. The SitRep might as well as be a list of victims because it’s rare that suspects are identified in Chicago violent crime.
According to HeyJackass.com, the Chicago police’s current year-to-date homicide clearance rate is 20.9%.
Got someone you want killed? Looking to get rid of a spouse? Remember those vows… till death do us part? Why not invite them to Murder City USA for a fun-filled vacation!
Normally the weekends are the peak of violence in America’s second largest city. The goblins made an exception to that rule this past Monday, with nine murders, and ten others shot.
Here’s the August 8th SitRep summary:
So far this year, as of August 8th, there have been 661 more shooting incidents than last year – an increase of roughly 50% year to date over last year.
The number of seized guns is down 274. Tough luck there, administrators, as you turned away about 50-some guns from Guns Save Life members because we were white or brown and not black at your last gun buyback.
Murders are up nearly 50% as well, but according to Chicago Police, only 404 murders have occurred to date. HeyJackass.com has a little higher numbers.
Among the victims was a fifth grader gunshot victim that a Chicago Police Officer saved by administering first aid until paramedics arrived. The young man was the sole victim of Chicago firearm-related criminal violence on August 8th that didn’t have an arrest record.
On the flip side, three reported Gangster Disciple members perforated in one location had 115 arrests between them. Cook County prosecutors prosecuted and obtained convictions on exactly 22 of those arrests. Ironically, the one killed the deadest had the fewest arrests. Sometimes Karma and Darwin don’t talk things over before the fun starts.
It all happened at 9441 LaSalle Street. Here’s part of the description:
The victims were standing on the street when a blue minivan drove by and began shooting.
Those darn shooting minivans. Can someone help me get my tactical minivan similarly equipped? I think I’d like 9mm caliber, but I won’t turn down .45 ACP. 7.62×51 might be a little too noisy and over-penetrative.
Twelve spent casings were recovered. (The dead guy – name withheld by us just to be on the safe side) is listed in the SSL with a score of 165 and has 17 arrests for cannabis, possession of a controlled substance, murder Apr 2005 sentenced 18 months for cannabis, unlawful use of weapons by a felon Oct 2000 sentenced to 2 years, Possession of a firearm June 1998 sentenced to 2 years, Possession firearm Sep 1994 sentenced to 2 years, Possession of firearm Aug 1991 no court disposition…
The lack of meaningful prison sentences for a frequent flier like this guy is why Chicago is awash in criminal violence.
Florida, by contrast, puts bad guys with guns into prison for a long time. Maybe that’s why Florida enjoys the lowest rate of firearms violent crime in that state’s history.
