After Eight Days, Chicago Homicides Almost Equal February 2015

posted on February 10, 2016

Only eight days into the month, Chicago’s homicides were only four short of the total from February of last year. 

A Chicago Tribune feature on Tuesday reported that 16 people had been killed through the first eight days of February 2016. In all, 330 residents have been shot since Jan. 1; 73 of those died. 

For years, Mayor Rahm Emmanuel and now-departed police superintendent Garry McCarthy attempted to create the impression that Chicago’s homicide rate was under control by employing a combination of number-fudging, changing definitions and deferring dates of death. However, twice as many people have been shot by violent criminals in 2016 than at this time in 2015, a rate too alarming to disguise.
