The Darker Side of Halloween infographic is a creepy look at the crimes that take place on that night. The statistics are sure to shock you.

For instance, in 2009, five people were injured on Halloween weekend in Chicago due to different shootings. The 'Freak Fest' event in Madison in 2002 resulted in a 65,000 person riot that involved bottle throwing, police harassment and vandalized stores at the hands of drunken rioters dressed up in Halloween costumes.

A not so surprising statistic in the Darker Side of Halloween infographic is the robberies that take place on October 31st. Since people are already dressed up, it's easy (yet unfortunate) to see why robbers would pick this night to commit a crime.
