Crime is down our asses. Everyone see the Tribune headline this morning?
And the article isn't any better:
- That meant shootings were up more than 11 percent in the first 11 months of 2012 compared with a year earlier. Through October, shootings had risen about 81/2 percent.
And four fatal shootings on Friday alone pushed the homicide total for the month to 38, just above 37 in November 2011. For the first 11 months of 2012, homicides have risen to 480, a 21 percent increase from 398 a year earlier. If trends continue, Chicago will likely exceed 500 homicides for the first time since 2008.
CompStat is a failure as are the NYPD transplants that brought this bullshit to Chicago. It has been decisively proven a fraud by its very creators on the East Coast, although the media here in Chicago keep parroting the company line. Milwaukee and Cleveland have had their own statistic scandals, too. If there was even a hint of an independent media here, Rahm, McJersey and that Tracy hack would be on the defensive from sunrise to sunset.
Upon reaching the 500 mark, McCarthy should be fired at noon that very day and Tracy should follow. Someone at HQ should start stacking moving boxes in a nearby closet for that happy day.
