Justified Kill Chart

Note: An attributed death is when a kill is carried out by a different character than the one who ordered it. So Henchmen murders are attributed to their bosses if they’re acting in their bosses interests.

  • 170 people is a ridiculously high number of bodies in a show that ran for 78 episodes.
  • I expected more of a body count discrepancy between Raylan and Boyd. Or that Raylan would kill less as the series went on while Boyd ramped up. That mostly didn’t happen apart from the drop after Raylan’s prolific first season (10 dead!).
  • Boyd and Raylan are the only characters that kill a person in every season. Their least prolific season (Season 3) had the highest body count anyways (34 dead).
  • These numbers are high enough to make Raylan and Boyd prolific serial killers.
  • Bo Crowder kills no one onscreen (but his lackeys do!). Ava Crowder kills 3 people but none of them can be attributed to Boyd. Raylan gets an attributed death for setting up Nicky Augustine.
  • The Bennetts kill a fair number of people but none of them know what the others are doing (0 attributed deaths for Mags).
  • Only 10% of Justified episodes have no deaths
  • Chief Deputy Art Mullen kills no one and is my Goddamn hero.

Due to the number of dead and the ambiguity in some cases, these numbers have a precision of +/-2ish. I want to emphasize that I love this show very much, but HOLY SHIT SO MANY DEAD PEOPLE HOW ARE PEOPLE STILL ALIVE IN KENTUCKY.


A white gunman killed 9 people at a black South Carolina church last night

Nine people were killed after a gunman opened fire Wednesday night at the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, South Carolina. Among the dead were the church’s pastor, South Carolina state Sen. Clementa Pinckney.

Police described the shooter as a white male with sandy hair around 21 years old. At a news conference shortly after the incident, city police Chief Greg Mullen called the shooting a hate crime. The shooter is still at large.

It’s been nearly a year since a mass shooting at a historic black church in Charleston shocked the nation.

“We woke up today and the heart and soul of South Carolina was broken,” said Gov. Nikki Haley the morning after a gunman killed nine worshippers in what authorities describe as a race-based attack.

At the time, officials struggled to make sense of the crime that unfolded on Wed., June 17 during an intimate evening Bible study at Emanuel AME Church.

“This is a tragedy that no community should have to experience,” said Charleston Police Chief Gregory Mullen at the first news conference late that night.

“It is senseless and it is unfathomable that somebody in today’s society would walk into a church when people are having a prayer meeting and take their lives,” he said.

While Grieving Continues, Church Shooting Was Charleston’s Call To Action

Nine people were killed at the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, South Carolina, Wednesday evening when gunman Dylann Roof opened fire on a prayer group before fleeing the scene.

Three men and six women are dead. Eight died at the church, police said, and another passed away at a local hospital. Three people survived the shooting.

“The only reason someone would walk into a church and shoot people that were praying is out of hate,“ said Charleston Mayor Joe Riley, who described the scene as "the most heartbreaking … I have ever witnessed in my life.”

“I do believe this is a hate crime,” added Gregory Mullen, Charleston’s chief of police.

Among the victims was Pastor Clementa Pinckney, who was also a state senator and well-regarded community leader.

Dylann Storm Roof was identified as the primary suspect on Thursday morning. He is a 21-year-old white male with sandy blond hair. He ran from the scene of the shooting and was apprehended in the early afternoon.

Members of the community are heartbroken and outraged. “If we’re not safe in the church, God you tell us where we are safe!” one yelled. “How can I take my child to church if a place of worship isn’t safe?” asked another.

The tragedy has gained a lot of attention on social media.

The shots were fired by an unidentified white man in his early 20s who entered the church and opened fire. The massacre will be investigated as a hate crime, Charleston Police Chief Greg Mullen said. However, by definition, it was a domestic act of terrorism and the gunman, a terrorist.

Why Recognizing The Charleston Church Shooting As An Act Of Racially Motivated Terrorism Is Only The First Step

I took a moment of silence last night.A long moment… as I struggled to sort through my emotions while I painfully watched breaking news broadcast reports that gunshots seared through Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, South Carolina around 9 p.m Wednesday. Nine people, who congregated for a prayer meeting, were killed.

A white gunman opened fire Wednesday night at a historic black church in this city’s downtown, killing nine people before fleeing and setting off an overnight manhunt, the police said.

At a news conference with Charleston’s mayor early Thursday, the police chief, Greg Mullen, called the shooting a hate crime.

“This is a tragedy that no community should have to experience,” he said. “It is senseless and unfathomable that someone would go into a church where people were having a prayer meeting and take their lives.”

The police said the gunman walked into the historic Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church around 9 p.m. and began shooting.

Eight people died at the scene, Chief Mullen said. Two people were taken to the Medical University of South Carolina, and one of them died on the way.

“Obviously, this is the worst night of my career,” Chief Mullen said. “This is clearly a tragedy in the city of Charleston.”


CHARLESTON, S.C. 06/17/15 — Nine people have died in a shooting at a historic black church in Charleston, S.C., police said early Thursday morning.

“I do believe this was a hate crime,” Police Chief Gregory Mullen said.

Eight people died on the scene at the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church and one person was pronounced dead at a hospital, Mullen said. The suspect, who remains on the loose, is a white male about 21 years old, officials said. The shooting took place at about 9 p.m. ET on Wednesday. Charleston Police released photos of the suspect during a news conference that started at 6 a.m. ET Thursday, and said he left the scene in a black four door sedan. The suspect is a clean-shaven young white male, about 5 feet 9 inches tall, of slender build and with sandy blond hair. He was wearing a gray sweatshirt or hoodie, blue jeans and Timberland boots, officials said. He is described as “armed and dangerous.”

"This is a tragedy that no community should have to experience. It is senseless. It is unfathomable that someone would walk into a church when people are having a prayer meeting and take their lives." Said Police Chief Mullen

"There is no greater coward than a criminal who enters a house of God and slaughters innocent people engaged in the study of scripture.”
