Chicago has deadliest September in 13 years…

by Kyle Bentle and Abe Epton | The Chicago Tribune  |  published on October 7, 2015

A violent September in Chicago ended with more homicides than any other month this year and the second-most shootings, according to data kept by the Chicago Tribune’s breaking news desk. Though the summer months in Chicago have traditionally been the most violent, shootings last month decreased little from August and there were about 50 percent more shootings than September 2014.

Looking beyond 2012, last month was the city’s deadliest September since 2002, according to a Tribune analysis. For two consecutive weekends there were more than 50 people shot, the first time that has happened in the four years that the Tribune has been tracking shootings.

The charts below show shootings and homicides in Chicago since 2012. The data are compiled by Tribune reporters about shooting victims, and could be different from city data on shooting incidents.

    Please someone tell where I can Find ODUMBO Satatements about this Carnage among “HIS” people???

  • Strictest Gun Laws in our Nation too! Now, what was that stupidity about more Gun Control from the Kenyan Queen and his ilk? Stupid is as Stupid does, and with Obama’s Records still SEALED tight, I take it he was a real dumbass and only given a pass for being a Foreign Student, thinking he would take his stupidity back to his jungle, instead of staying on our shores, they passed him and gave the Tea Boy special privileges, probably because of some gay Professors Hussein serviced in return.

    Looks like Rahm “You never want a serious crisis to go to waste” Emanuel’s gun control policies are working very well. NOT!

  • teaman

    When we lived in Chicago, on 4th of July and New Year’s Eve (especially) we stayed home and away from the windows. We were always very careful about what neighborhoods we traveled through.
    That city has been a cesspool forever, but went rapidly down hill after “Hiz Honor da Mayor” died. HE was not afraid to let the police do their job. His son, richie bought into the PC crap and was a useless POS.

    What is it about that place. With murders and violent crime generally flat or declining in most of the country, it’s increasing there. Is it some politically incorrect condition in Chicago (and Detroit, Baltimore, Philadelphia, LA, etc.) that accounts for their crime rate? Yes, we know the answer but can’t say it.

  • ed
