NYC 10-Day Murder-Free Streak a Record

New York City, once notorious for high crime, broke a record on Thursday with no murders reported for 10 straight days, police said.

The historic calm achieved at 12:01 a.m. Thursday comes on the heels of a notable year – murders in New York City in 2014 fell to an all-time low of 328, the fewest since the New York Police Department started keeping reliable records in 1963.

    Who get’s the credit for this? The mayor? The NYPD? How about gentrification and shkutsim being pushed out? Shhhhhhh, don’t say that, not PC…

    To #3 “Stop and Frisk Success”, if an aggressive stop and frisk strategy was not discontinued by the NYPD and our mayor “Mr. Bill” no question there would be less gun violence.

    Not for lack of trying. This site recounts at least one shooting and one robbery with a gun. Cold weather and poor marksmanship at work here.
