How many? you have to post your exact number but a range poll seemed like a good idea too.

Poll closed Aug 14, 2018.
  1. 0-10, we expect a snow storm.

    2 vote(s)
    5.7%
  2. 11-20, say it rains all weekend, tho it's not supposed to.

    4 vote(s)
    11.4%
  3. 21-30, maybe the stratergerie works.

    3 vote(s)
    8.6%
  4. 30-50? seems like the norm.

    10 vote(s)
    28.6%
  5. 0ver 50? go big or go home, do the gangs react to the cops threats?

    We had roughly 60 people shot last weekend, how many will take a bullet or few this weekend?

    Keep in mind, Chicago PD decided to up the patrol Fri and Sat night by about 600 officers.

    They plan on breaking up any street parties where there is loud music and/or the smell of marajuana in certain "zones".

    With over 350 killed this year, going after pot smokers seems like a pretty silly idea. i don't know too many pot smokers, but the ones I know are generally very passive.

    I'll paypal $5 to the winner that guesses the exact number of people shot in chicago starting now until monday at 8AM. Guess or post by midnight tonight.

    i think we're in for a sh;t show, and i hope i'm very wrong.

    Again, that's # of people shot, not the number of fatalities due to shooting.

    Last weekend was actually 74.

    I'm gong to say 61! Prepare that $5, partner.

    Wtf. This isn't a March madness bracket or the price is right. Wagering on how many will die violent painful deaths, not cool.

    I don't have a problem with gang members killing each other. Let them wipe themselves out.

    I sat (as a juror) on a murder trial last week
    a 16 year old victim, executed for the small sum
    of $500

    almost hopelessly sad the culture that's been created

    there's virtually no way to 'unfuck' Chicago

    Everyone wants to stop the violence but no one wants to "snitch".

    I don't know how many people will be shot in Chi-town this weekend.

    But I can guarantee a shot out of a cannon right here on MLP if this thread turns political or crappy.

    I wish there was a real answer. I'm afraid that people are just too stupid en masse.

    I’m going with 63.

    My youngest daughter was at Lollapalooza last weekend in Shitcago. When I told her how many people had been shot in the city that weekend, she couldn’t believe it. Thank God she got home safe.

    This is the inevitable outcome when "street culture" is put on a pedestal and worshiped.

    Okay, so how many people were shot in Hartford last weekend? And why hasn't it been consistently in the news the last few years?

    I went a-googlin' . Two shootings in late June, Hartford.

    I disagree with the "per captia" thing. Bad areas are bad areas, ghettos are gettos, street is street, and it all stinks like bad cess.
