Chicago: Homicides up 50%, shootings of officers up 150%

At least 10 officers have been shot at since the beginning of 2021

CHICAGO — Chicago recorded 51 homicides in January—the highest total the city has recorded for the month in four years, according to a report. Overall, gunfire also soared last month, despite cold weather gripping the city. Chicago recorded 201 shootings through the end of January, police said. In 2020, the same time period saw 137 shootings, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.

Last year, the city recorded 35 homicides in January, according to data released Monday by the Chicago Police Department and cited by the paper.

At least 10 officers have been shot since the beginning of 2021, compared to four officers struck during January last year, according to the paper.

Homicides in Chicago increased 55% in 2020

According to Chicago police data, the city recorded 769 homicides in 2020, a 55% increase over 2019, Fox reported.

The increase in violent crime last year was blamed on several factors, including the stress of the COVID-19 pandemic, state and local restrictions, and an unprecedented economic crisis, the Chicago Tribune reported.

Chicago also saw 180% more carjackings in January than during the same month in 2020 — and police believe most of the offenses are being committed by young adults and teenagers, some of whom are currently out of school due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Carjackings rose about 135% last year to 1,415 and continue at a high pace this year, police statistics show. CPD recorded 218 carjackings in January 2021 — a staggering spike from the 77 reported during the same time last year, authorities told Fox News late Monday.

My buddy was in a shooting a month ago. He won. I had an extremely close call last week. It’s getting worse out there.

Yep but as long at Facebook and Instagram stay up and running, the public will stick their heads in the sand and pretend nothing is wrong. The emperor really has no clothes.

On the bright side, we recently worked a self defense shooting by a member of the public. Won’t say more than that at the moment. Will say that the problem got solved and is staying solved so, thanks to at least one citizen, the world just got a little better.

The public is slowly starting to see it but it’s gonna take a long time. The local state passed a bunch of laws making traffic violations secondary offenses so now there’s a lot less traffic enforcement. Shockingly now they’re upset that they have to divert tax funds to the child protective, traffic safety patrols and educational services the ticket revenue went to. Oh and look at that, more traffic accidents in the last quarter of 2020 who could have predicted that? Crime is going up? Huh that’s so weird. On the upside I have much more time to work out on duty.

People are inherently stupid.  

On the bright side, with every new fuck the police change, there's less for the police to do.  Just sit back, collect a paycheck, and watch the world burn.  

I'm lucky I work in a conservative area with mostly good people who support us.  I could make more elsewhere (although my pay is fair) but then I'd be stressed.  As it stands now, I'm pretty stress free.

They won't keep murderers in jail right now, just like the early 90's before parole reform.

Been in two shootouts in the last 19 years. Been shot at a third time and wounded. I am now riding a desk ( not by choice ) and will do so until I retire. My S.O. has had fourteen shooting incidents since the beginning of 2021. Thankfully no Deputies were killed and two slightly injured. Things have gotten progressively worse everywhere.

Our OIS incidents have increased as well. I fully expect to be in another one this year.....maybe more. Hopefully I’m wrong.

There are counties in WI that won't even accept people arrested on their felony warrants by other counties.

I won't say the solution is to drive the dude to the neighboring counties jail, then send out the request, then when denied release them in the parking lot of their own jail instead of in your own county, but I am saying that's starting to happen.

Nice to see many woke brothers and sisters. This scamdemic has further erased the line between truth and lies. In my agency we very rarely even wear the face diapers. Many of us are sick and tired of the bullshit baked fresh and served daily. I think the last figure was over 2 billion times the word 'Pandemic' has been used on tell-a-vison by the propaganda machine media. I will defend the constitution until my last drop of blood or last bullet. Stay safe.
