Fifty people were shot, four fatally, since Friday in Chicago, according to local Top. Men.. Five of those, were teenagers. Or, “Urban Yute”.



  • The last reported homicide of the weekend happened about 10 p.m. Sunday in Chatham on the South Side. Jeremiah D. McCoy, 25, was riding as a passenger in a car when a blue sedan pulled up and shot the man in the head in the 8600 block of South State Street, officials said.

Four people were in a car about 6:50 p.m. when someone fired at them in the 100 block of South Keeler Avenue, police said. They continued driving to the 500 block of South Pulaski Road, where the car crashed into a Chicago Fire Department vehicle. A 21-year-old man was pronounced dead at Mount Sinai Hospital after being shot in the back and forearm.

A 27-year-old man was driving north at 2:56 a.m. in the first block of North Kedzie Avenue when a tan minivan pulled alongside him and someone inside fired shots, according to police. He was shot in the buttocks and taken to Stroger Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Chicagoland’s Most Dangerous Hoods In 2020

2020 Homicide Trend

The surge in homicides across Chicago could be a side effect of the virus lockdowns earlier in the year. 

What’s becoming increasingly clear is that widespread violence in Chicago is also happening all around the country, suggesting the virus triggered socio-economic bombs across major metro areas and is transforming America into a hellhole. 


  1. Some of these shootings may be utterly random, but I wouldn’t be at all surprised if they’re mostly targeted and related to drugs or other criminal activities. What are all these people doing standing around talking on streets and alleyways in the middle of the night?

    The ethnic background of the shooters and shootees would also be…interesting, I’m sure.

  2. Having some knowledge of the situation, I’ll say this much: Chicago’s root problem is that the cops catch ’em, and then the politicians release ’em.

    Most of the city’s aldercreatures and other elected officials are either in cahoots with the gangbangers, or they’re beholden to them. It’s exactly the same as during the Prohibition.

    Petty corruption in Illinois is endemic; most of the people participating in it don’t even realize they’re corrupt. I had an acquaintance out there who argued vehemently with me when I said that Chicagoland was inherently and irretrievably corrupt. He swore up and down that I was wrong, and that it wasn’t so.

    Same dude had his 3/4-mile long drive way asphalted and resurfaced by his “cousin” on the country road crew, using county equipment and personnel, for around $300.00. He did not see that as at all corrupt, just a “good deal”. Legit price for that job at the time and location would have been somewhat north of $30,000.00, considering all the prep work necessary. And, that ‘effing driveway looked like a city street when they were done–It was not what you’d normally expect for someone’s semi-rural driveway in McHenry County, Illinois. Unless it was on an estate or something… Not kidding that it was nicer than many newly-built city streets.

    They also don’t prosecute gun crimes, when you’re a gangbanger. I was friends with a guy who owned the local gun shop, and we ran into each other up at the Lake County Gun Show. He had a table or two, and while we were shooting the shit, an obvious gangbanger came up with his strawman GF and an “adviser” to check out the offerings. My friend figured out the deal in short order, as did I, and he slickly got the guy’s name and address, as well as the strawman chick’s. We later observed them buying a gun from another, less careful dealer. This fact was submitted to the BATF that day on a tipline, and when the next gun show rolled around, hey, here comes the same set of creeps, checking out the guns available yet again. Second time around, he called the then-new head agent at the Chicago BATF office, and complained about the lack of action. Within a week, he had the BATF goons in his shop, ass-raping his records and operations, nearly putting him out of business for a couple of really minor paperwork issues they managed to essentially create.

    I should mention, too, that my friend was retired Air Force, a Lieutenant Colonel in the Reserve, and a retired Chicago detective who’d done about 30 years working for the department, during which he’d been on several different multi-agency task forces that included the BATF and FBI. You don’t want his opinion on either agency, and that was back in the early 1990s.

    Chicago is what it is due to the politicians and crooks, who are interchangeable and who work hand-in-hand. It’s also an interesting note that the most racist anti-black people I ever met, anywhere, were Chicago cops who happened to be black, as well. Those guys? Holy shit, spend a half-hour talking to them one-on-one, and you’re gonna find yourself thinking “Man, I bet the Grand Dragon of the KKK would be saying “Now, hold on a minute, gentlemen… I think you’re going a little overboard with the racism, here…””.

    • “They also don’t prosecute gun crimes, when you’re a gangbanger.”

      “Gun crimes” only exist for otherwise law-abiding people like us and your FFL buddy. If the cops want to roll up a gang, they don’t have any trouble doing so with crimes that have been on the books since before there were books. (Or anyway with drug crimes, which are close enough at this point.) And when they do roll up the gang? The “gun crimes” will be the first ones they plead down.

      They want to make gun ownership legally fraught for people like us. Or at least to appear to make it so in order to intimidate people who don’t feel like getting 1/4th of a JD just to stay on the correct side of the law.

  3. Kirk, you forgot to mention Homan Square, the Chicago PD’s “Black Site”
    The Chicago PD has been notoriously corrupt since the 1920’s, the City Government has been corrupt since its foundation, much like San Francisco.
    “The Outfit” set the tone in Chicago during the early part of the 20th Century while in the SF area the Italian mob was pretty much confined to San Jose, the rest of the bay area was already locked up by long standing organisations.
    i spent some time with “Jack” Webb, he had retired after 30 years as a Homicide Detective in SF about 1990.
    He owned two Irish pubs in the City and was an Irish Nationalist, carried a customized 1911 when with the PD and a Glock .45 later in life.
    He had some stories …
