Atlanta already had its first one within the first minutes, at the Five Points MARTA Station (at Underground where the Peach Drop takes place). There was a fight and a teen was stabbed to death. So much for a murder free 2011 in ATL . Then again, as jordandubreil mentioned, NYE is an event where there is a lot of partying and heavy drinking, so such an incident is more likely to occur. Therefore, you can't really use it as a measure of how the entire year is going to be.

The 'peach drop' in underground Atlanta was promptly followed by the stabbing to death of a 14 year old around the corner @ the main transit station. It happened 15 minutes into the new year!
pretty typical for Atlanta!
