    If I am going to give a medal it would be to Mother Nature for having it rain all day.


  2. - MrJM - Thursday, Oct 31, 13 @ 11:45 am:

    And how come no one ever says “thank you” for all the trick-or-treaters that I don’t run over?

    – MrJM

    Time to see what Second City Cop has to say on the subject :)

    his comments just show how patheticly out of control violent crime is in Chicago. from his point of view it’s legitimately great news, and considering the tragic circumstances of the big city maybe the public should agree. dont’ understand how thing can be so bad when city has those tough gun laws.


  5. - jim - Thursday, Oct 31, 13 @ 11:55 am:

    think i just misspelled adverb version of pathetic.


  6. - John Bambenek - Thursday, Oct 31, 13 @ 11:57 am:

    And SCC doesn’t disappoint with the story of a convicted felon proctoring the sergeants exam who was convicted of… stealing a police firearm.


  7. - Anon - Thursday, Oct 31, 13 @ 11:59 am:

    This is likely false….They just haven’t found the bodies yet.


  8. - Ravenswood Right Winger - Thursday, Oct 31, 13 @ 12:01 pm:

    But if someone was wounded on Wednesday, and dies on Friday, is it a Friday homicide or a Wednesday homicide?


  9. - Ron Burgundy - Thursday, Oct 31, 13 @ 12:03 pm:

    Well once the word gets out to all the murderers, they’ll fix that.


  10. - RonOglesby - Thursday, Oct 31, 13 @ 12:10 pm:

    thats funny. Now he wants to celebrate a single day w/ out a murder. A day when it was raining (pouring) all afternoon and evening. But if there are 4 in a day that is sunny we shouldn’t talk about that.

    Wasn’t he the guy that said weather has nothing to do with the number shootings?


  11. - SAP - Thursday, Oct 31, 13 @ 12:14 pm:

    Sounds like the Springfield Nuclear Power Plant bragging that they’ve gone one day without a meltdown.


  12. - Cincinnatus - Thursday, Oct 31, 13 @ 12:35 pm:

  13. - Frank - Thursday, Oct 31, 13 @ 12:40 pm:

    Agreed, he looks a little silly. But I do sympathize with McCarthy in that Chicago is on pace to have one of its lowest murder totals in 40 years and no one is reporting it.


  14. - AlphaBettor - Thursday, Oct 31, 13 @ 12:55 pm:

    If you’ve ever dealt with CPD News Affairs, you’ll understand why word isn’t getting out.


  15. - RonOglesby - Thursday, Oct 31, 13 @ 1:03 pm:

    @Frank, actually its pretty much par for the last few years if we dont count 2012 (which had a huge abnormal bump).

    Of course he has to be compared to other large cities, NY, LA, etc. which make us look bad in certain (high profile) categories.


  16. - A guy... - Thursday, Oct 31, 13 @ 1:07 pm:

    I dunno. Aurora went a year before celebrating a “no murder” period.


  17. - A guy... - Thursday, Oct 31, 13 @ 1:08 pm:

    Guess you gotta start somewhere.


  18. - A Citizen - Thursday, Oct 31, 13 @ 1:08 pm:

    Obviously one of the first success stories of Concealed Carry.


  19. - Publius - Thursday, Oct 31, 13 @ 1:15 pm:

    New York recently went for 8 days.


  20. - James the Intolerant - Thursday, Oct 31, 13 @ 1:25 pm:

    The problem with this administration is they want to take a victory lap every time they have a “success”, well it that’s how you want to govern than be ready to take the heat the next time 8 people are shot in one day.


  21. - wordslinger - Thursday, Oct 31, 13 @ 1:42 pm:

    If it don’t bleed, it don’t lead.


  22. - OneMan - Thursday, Oct 31, 13 @ 2:10 pm:

    Try harder Chicago


  23. - Bill Wick - Thursday, Oct 31, 13 @ 2:12 pm:

    Man shot dead in West Pullman
    Police found a man in his 20s dead on a Far South Side parkway early Thursday morning .
    Police found the dead man about 12:50 a.m. near the corner of 122nd Street and Union Avenue in the West Pullman neighborhood. He had been shot in the head.

  25. - PublicServant - Thursday, Oct 31, 13 @ 3:25 pm:

    Duh! Wednesday they were all making their Halloween costumes.


  26. - 47th Ward - Thursday, Oct 31, 13 @ 3:57 pm:

    So who had October 30th in the Pool?


  27. - D.P.Gumby - Thursday, Oct 31, 13 @ 3:59 pm:

    Is that the “trick” or the “treat”?


  28. - Precinct Captain - Thursday, Oct 31, 13 @ 6:30 pm:

    ==- Bill Wick - Thursday, Oct 31, 13 @ 2:20 pm:==

    What’s your point? A Thursday murder? Did anyone believe this would last consecutive days?

    ==Time to see what Second City Cop has to say on the subject :)==

    What reason in God’s Earth is there to visit that site other than to know there are still a bunch of racist fools on the CPD?


  29. - Anonymous - Thursday, Oct 31, 13 @ 9:46 pm:

    hahaha

    when all else fails just play the racist card
