New York City Goes Without Murders, Shootings, Stabbings For More Than One Whole Day (VIDEO) (external - login to view)

For the first time in well, a long time, New York City went a whole 24 hours this week without a single murder, stabbing, or shooting (external - login to view). Gotham enjoyed the unusual peace from 10:30 p.m. on Sunday, until 11:20 a.m. Tuesday, when a 27-year-old man was shot in Brooklyn....

....The city's homicide rate for 2012 is on pace to reach just over 400 murders for the year.
"They're going to come in with the fewest number of murders since about 1960,'' Tom Reppetto, a NYPD historian and author of American Police, 1945-2012 (external - login to view), told The Daily News. "It's an almost impossible figure, but their programs have been fabulously successful in stopping crime."

I remember the old 22 Minutes warning they put on once when some viewers mistook them for real news: "Some viewers may not share this sense of humour".

Indeed.
But it's more fun when the chasm widens.

Or at least no reported ones. Helps with the stats when the 911 operators are on strike.

Ah...& I was wondering if this was perhaps weather related. Could'a
been all sorts of contributing factors to overriding the urge to sticking
a knife in your neighbour or shooting at the paperboy, ect...

Good for NYC. Hope this is the beginning of a trend.

What day is welfare day in NYC? The day before welfare or baby cheques here in the hood is usually extra calm but come the night after, the sirens are almost non-stop.

I was thinking of a specific night a few years back with the comment above.
This is about 5:30am on that Saturday morning afterwards, from my front steps:

I think it's a continuation of a trend.

No Murders In New York - Business Insider (external - login to view)

"Overall, the city's murder rate this year is down 23%, reaching levels last seen in 1960. This is a milestone in the 20-year-long decline of violent crime in the Big Apple"

I see your Rotti in the back of one cruiser with the cuffs on. You off camera??

They could pay cops 100K a year and they'd earn every gaddam penny.

Ever watch Cops or To Serve and Protect ?? Swear to god if I had to deal with some of the drugged out drunken, screaming idiots seen on these programs I'd shoot center mass, then stick a knife in their hands. "Bastard came at me sarge Big knife, sorry"
