- 13 homicides last week now puts 2013 solidly ahead of 2011 - 123 vs 115. Plus a number of those shot in the past week were listed in "grave" condition.
The Tiny Dancer and McGunControl surge seems to be losing steam.
How much money has been spent in overtime, etc... ?No idea how much overtime has been expended, but we know it got that much harder to track the other day. We got this e-mail from an interested party:
- Not sure why, but all of a sudden CPD and CFD overtime payments have been removed from the City's DataPortal. As of March-April, this had YTD overtime for ALL City Departments and ALL personnel but it seems that City Hall has now limited it to those few Depts that they feel like releasing. So much for open and transparent.We'll admit we didn't use the site before, so we aren't sure what was there, but our e-mailer obviously has used it and noticed right away that a significant method of tracking spending has been concealed. Anyone want to guess why?
And I love the liberal dips***s who blame neighboring cities for Chicago's homicide rate. "The guns are all coming in from other cities where they're easy to obtain," they'll whine, "that's why the murder rate is so high!"
You mean those same cities that have only a tiny fraction of the murders that Chicago suffers?
