Many - if not most - of these crimes will quietly be dropped from the list of active cases over the next few weeks, and - later this year - erased permanently from city records, and removed from Chicago crime statistics for the year.

That’s how they roll in Rahm-cago.

And the LSM will declare that this didn’t happen when they had strict gun control in Chicago.

We shouldn't criticize the diversity of culture!

If shooting & killing one another is their way of celebrating the holiday, I'd say it was a grand celebration!

In a Democrat “Progressive” Paradise like Chicago, people don’t kill people: guns do. What I don’t understand is why Chicago doesn’t implement strict gun control to stop this madness. While they’re at it, they need to outlaw drugs too to put an end to the gang drug wars.

From Second City Cop:

If you noticed the news reports earlier, the Department is trying to alter the definition of "weekend" again, cutting off the totals at 2359 hours Saturday and claiming that as a "weekend total" hoping that no one will remember Sunday numbers by the time next Saturday rolls around.

The media isn't biting at that though, and has been reporting the usual numbers from Friday afternoon until Sunday evening. 60 is a lot, no matter how Rahm tries to spin it.

CompStat is going to be... interesting to say the least.

Excellent and a great magazine series on the faked Chicago Police crime stats done by the Emanuel administration currently.

Special Report: Part 1 of 2
The Truth About Chicago’s Crime Rates
The city’s drop in crime has been nothing short of miraculous. Here’s what’s behind the unbelievable numbers.

I’ve decided that I no longer want to win the lottery. What I would like is the exclusive contract to provide the yellow “Police Line. Do not cross” tape for the Chicago PD. At the rate they go through it I would be rich within the year.

Nothing, without adding the coalition casualties and the Afghan civilian casualties as well.

That's a rhetorical question I assume.Everyone in this nation who pays attention knows that members of the Rat Party hierarchy were on Martha's Vineyard.

Liberals deliberately leave illegal guns in the hands of violent criminals, while plotting to seize them from non-violent, honest individuals.

The bad news: many dead, many more wounded who will require years if not decades of healthcare (i.e. - taxpayer subsidized medical care).

The good news: fewer democrat voters in Chicago.

Not fewer, in fact, they're going to be more reliable voters from here on.

Since when did being dead stop someone from voting democrat?
I say: “Good news... less welfare recipients”

But at the rate these baby mamas plop out welfare check babies, they can’t kill each other fast enough.

OK...Then let’s add the American dead in LA, Detroit, New York, Atlanta, Miami, St Louis etc...

Would THAT help you see the point I was trying to make???

Probably not, but people can manipulate statistics to do just about anything. Say that next weekend only 20 people were shot. That would be like the Chicago Police going on the TV next week and saying they'd cut the crime rate by two thirds. And just as accurate.

The point being Chicago is MORE deadly than a war zone...
people are dying at home in Chicago at a greater rate than in a freaking war zone... THIS is desturbing to a Vietnam veteran such as myself...

If you can’t see this, I am truly sorry....

If children flee this violence and get to Texas, will the Federal government step in with refugee camps and benefits of Texas citizenship?

Over a year ago, Mayor Rahm Emanuel pleaded with the shooters to take their shooting to less traveled side streets and alleys to avoid collateral damage. Apparently, these shooters weren't impressed by the mayor's plea or didn't care. This cannot be happening in Chicago and Cook County after the effective victim disarmament program that's in place (aka ‘gun control’).

Rahm needs to paraphrase ex-Mayor Marion Barry of Washington, DC: “If it wasn't for all the murders, Chicago would have a very low crime rate.”
