Chicago Records Deadliest Day In 13 Years As City Spirals Out Of Control

Tyler Durden's picture

Last week the Chicago Tribune pointed out that nearly 100 people had been shot in Chicago in less than a week.  9 people were killed on Monday alone marking the deadliest day for the city in 13 years.  Now, with weekend data out, turns out the story is even worse.  For the week ended 8/13, a total of 110 people were shot in Chicago with 24 of them killed.  YTD statistics indicate the city is spiraling out of control with total shootings up to 2,621, a mere ~50% YoY increase, with 445 total homicides.

The current homicide rate through August indicates the city is on pace for over 700 homicides in 2016, a 63% increase from 2015 (see chart below). 

Annual Chicago Homicides

Below are a couple of stats from HeyJackass!  Daily shootings continue to average around 10-20.

Weekly Shootings


Total YTD shootings through July 2016 are trending at a 50% YoY increase.

Chicago Total Shot


A stunning map reveals Chicago's deadliest neighborhoods.  Chicago's Austin neighborhood has recorded the most shootings in 2016 at 313 but Englewood wins the prize for most homicides at 54.

And all of this - as we pointed out previously -  In continued defiance of the Democrat narrative calling for stricter gun laws, Chicago's homicide problem just keeps getting worse despite gun laws that are already among the most restrictive in the country.  If fact, even the New York Times described Chicago's gun laws as some of the "toughest restrictions," saying: 

Not a single gun shop can be found in this city because they are outlawed.  Handguns were banned in Chicago for decades, too, until 2010, when the United States Supreme Court ruled that was going too far, leading city leaders to settle for restrictions some describe as the closest they could get legally to a ban without a ban. Despite a continuing legal fight, Illinois remains the only state in the nation with no provision to let private citizens carry guns in public.

Finally, despite some of the most restrictive gun laws in the country, 87% of homicides were committed with firearms, up from 79% in 2010.  So how could the city that has the toughest gun laws in the country, laws described as the "closest they could get legally to a ban without a ban," also have some of the highest gun-related homicide rates?  Could it be, that criminals looking to use weapons for violence have a lower propensity to follow laws and that by banning guns you're really just taking them out of the hands of law-abiding citizens that wouldn't have used them for violence anyway?  Just a thought.

124 shot and only 24 killed indicates piss poor gun control.


Sights on target, slow breathing, squeeze the trigger.


So easy, even a chimp can do it.

Like any addicts, Chicago's litard elite can't change until Chicago hits rock bottom; therefore, help Chicago by boycotting Chicago. It's the right thing to do.

Obviously Whitey is the problem. Let's declare Chicago a Caucasion Free Zone, to go along with a Cop Free Zone and Gun Free Zone. Black Lives Matters Wins! Struggle Over. Enjoy your Freedom.

Well, the good news is that the negroes have not spilled over the border,  wait a minute there..

You can take the negro out of Chicago and put him in the white house, but you can’t take Chicago out of the negro. ……

Even with 300 white wannabe golf games.

Bumpo, to match your expert sarcasm let me respond with, "I don't get what you mean."

As I keep saying you can't civilize these people no matter how hard you try, it's pointless, give it up and just let them get on with it as this is the way they want to behave, it's natural behavior to them. Again we need to segregate. We must. We just can't keep going on like this.

Manthong's picture

um.. like average sub-90 IQ muslims?

Manthong's picture

Well yes… every weekend I see dozens shot and only a few killed.

WTF.. we need to give the negroes some gun instruction and target practice.

Those of us who really care can help them with their shooting skills

.. just like Clinton, Bush and Obama.

Clearly gun control is working well in Chicago!

I used to rent a music space in a warehouse in the Austin area a few years back, one day I was at a red light and there was thugs to my right on the corner, thugs to the left on the corner and thugs in the alleyways.

Anyways I was at the red light and a cop pulls up and asks what I am doing there, I told him I was passing through and he told me never to stop at any red lights, just keep going...

I always say that I don't hate them for the color of their skin, I hate them because the vast majority with that skin color are really fucking ignorant.

Lincoln wanted to send them back to africa.  Instead he made the biggest mistake in human (chimp?) history.

MarsInScorpio's picture


Your American History Blame Game sucks. You blame Lincoln for second-guessing himself and instead of shipping the Blacks back to the Arab Islamic (see - they are always a thorn in the world's history!) Slave Merchants, and through them back to the genesis of Black on Black Crime - the Blacks who captured other Blacks to sell to the Islamic Slave Merchants - he allowed them to stay.




Lincoln got gunned down by the Southern Sympathiser from the Border State of Maryland, John Wilkes Booth, while watching "Our American Cousins."


Had Booth not offed Lincoln, Lincoln would have followed through with "deporting" them in the name of "giving them back their freedom." Nobody in power then preached the "Negro" and White races were anywhere near equal, and nobody preached integration either.


Lincoln knew the Negro race would never successfully"assimilate" into the American White British Christian Culture. (As history repeats with other won't assimilate cultures alien to today's American culture). As everyone can see for themselves, he was correct about a certain percentage of the Black race.


It would serve everyone well to remember that Milwaukee's riot involved only about 100 Blacks - a miniscule percentage of all Blacks in the city. (Which doesn't negate the Reality that the Black Culture as a whole is in a Death Spiral piloted by Crazy Hillary, George Soros, and the Radical Left Wing Fringe in society and the MSM).


Booth literally"killed" sending them back when he killed Lincoln, which was the purpose of killing Lincoln. As a Southern Sympathiser, he wanted the "sharecropper cheap" labor - America's first debt-slave Banker crime against humanity - to continue by killing Lincoln, and thus any possibility the former formal slaves, now debt-slaves, would leave.


Blame Booth, and as always throughout time, the Crimes Against Humanity Bankers, for the 151-year and still counting, destruction of America.

Well said.  You will piss off a lot of folks with your words.

None of that stupid "sideways" aiming BS either.

I bought a Sten just so I could have one of the few guns that were built to be held sideways.

Dugald's picture


Sten designed to be fired sideways....Bollocks

    Try running and fireing, oh and keep your mouth open,         hot brass tastes real good...

                Have you really fired one....

Doesn't appear so in this case.

Looks like their gun control is working from this abysmal kill rate.  No place to practice and hone skills.

Kirk2NCC1701's picture

What's wrong with these stats?  They look a bit lame, but otherwise right on track.

Chicago hospitals train combat trauma surgeons. Might have something to do with the quality of taxpayer funded free care........

As opposed to pants down running backward shooting sideways.

Only 8 in Chatham? Pick it up, Chatham. You're making Chi-town look bad.

They're probably just using cheap full metal jacket ammo. The dindu's aren't gonna buy premium hollow point ammo.

IF the citizen could shoot back, this would stop.  No right to carry.

Incorrect, IL DOES have concealed carry for 2+ yrs now(including the shitty of Shitcago) .

We should have the Olympics in Chicago. At least this way, they can lie about the statistics and we can all feel better, so the visitors will come.

It's pretty apparent that Obama did a bang up job as a community organizer there.

Kirk2NCC1701's picture

Tyler, please tell us where our Community-Organizer-in-Chief lived/organized, so we can see what glorious impact his Org skills have had, and how this made him "uniquely qaulified" as the POTUS (Plutocrat Of The US).

Ok, sarcasm aside, where did he live/organize?

Theosebes Goodfellow's picture

Well, think about it, Kirk. This does certainly explain why Barry Soetoro isn't returning to Chicago after the election to "build his library".


Blythes Master's picture

Let all the feral shitbeasts in shitcongo take each-other out.

That's that much less ammo to be wasted when/if they make it out to the countyside after the collapse.

Tell them to stop holding the gun sideways and the kill rate might increase
