H/T The Truth About Guns.

We are told by the liberals that more gun laws are needed news flash enforce the ones on the books now.


When Donald Trump mentioned that violence in Chicago is out of control, that upset a lot of folks, especially on the left. The inconvenient truth, though, is that he’s right. Homicides in Chicago are on a record pace. Crime in general has skyrocketed as well.


The graphic at the top of this page represents homicides in Chicago versus military casualties among those fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan. With homicides since September 6th, Chicago is just shy of 8,000 total dead in that time span.  It’ll likely happen by the end of this coming weekend.

Per HeyJackass.com:

Homicides for 2016 as of today:  574.
Total people shot in 2016 as of today:  3325.

To put that “total people shot” number into perspective, in 2013, only 2159 people were shotover the entire year.

In 2015, the Windy City had “only” had 509 homicides. America had 16,121 homicides last year,per the CDC.  Yes, that means Chicago accounted for 3.2% of the entire nation’s homicides. Congratulations, Rahm.

Let’s take a peek at the Chicago Police Situational Report from October 3, 2016 as a snapshot of the incidents.

As you’ll see, it’s almost all gang related.  Typically, it’s scumbag on scumbag, unless innocents find themselves becoming the backstop at America’s largest open-air shooting gallery. Exactly that happened to one 21-year-old female holding her baby while talking with a neighbor.  She succumbed to her injuries.

The “SSL” scores (Strategic Subject List) is a computerized model to predict future (mis-)behavior.  In short, scoring 100+ is a future inmate of America.  300+ and the subject is not likely to die of old age.  500+ and the subject’s not likely to live to his next birthday.

It’s also interesting to see how few cases the Cook County State’s Attorney prosecutes through to a conviction.  And even where there is a conviction, meaningful prison sentences are nearly non-existent.


SUMMARY: The victims who are Two Six members were sitting in a small group on a porch. An occupant of a dark colored SUV driving S/B on Sacramento began shooting at the group, striking both victims. The SUV fled the scene W/B on 41st Place. No CPD Pods in the immediate area & no private video observed. Victim PEREZ is a Mozart Two Six, is listed in the SSL with a score of 376 & has 10 arrests including PSMV, Crim Deface & CDTP. GC-CE-009-002 26 vs SD.

Between the two of them, they have 17 arrests and the soft-on-crime Cook County State’s Attorney’s office has gotten exactly zero convictions.


SUMMARY: The victims were standing on the sidewalk outside of Victim GREGORY’s residence. Two unknown M/1 subjects appeared from the corner of 18th and Kildare and began to fire handguns at the victims. GREGORY was struck in the abdomen and Victim JORDAN was struck in the arm. The offenders then fled to a waiting, dark colored, possible Chevy Malibu with front end damage and fled N/B on Kildare from 18 Street. No firearms evidence at the scene. Victim GREGORY is listed in the SSL with a score of 330 & has 1 arrest for Cannabis. Victim JORDAN is listed in the SSL with a score of 333 & has 1 arrest for FTA. This incident occurred within the GC CE 010 005 NB GD conflict area.


SUMMARY: Victim ROBINSON was walking on South State St when two M/1’s appeared at the corner of 106th Pl and started shooting. ROBINSON was shot in the left hand and took off running. Victim MAYES, an innocent bystander who was holding her 14 month old baby girl, was talking to a neighbor by the neighbor’s car when she was shot twice. MAYES was transported to Christ Hospital where she was pronounced at 1456 hrs. Multiple .40 and .45 cal shell casings were recovered. ROBINSON is listed in the SSL with a score of 343 & has 3 arrests including Sep 2012 Arm Robb w/firearm sentenced to Boot Camp, Cannabis & CTTR. MAYES has no criminal history. Incident occurred in a High Threat level BD/MC vs GD gang conflict area GC-SO-005-003.

An innocent bystander, holding her baby while talking with a neighbor, was shot and killed.  That’s truly tragic.  The probably intended target was a convicted armed robber, released after a few months of calisthenics and running at the Illinois Department of Corrections boot camp.  Is it any wonder why Chicago is awash in violent crime?
