Apparently we only had 209 homicides last year.
Definitely much more then that. More like somewhere between 500-600.

this one even moreso the victim wasn't innocent (just want people to understand that I am not defending this guy)... however, that being said, here we have another case of blatant excessive force and lame excuses for the excessive force...
That didn't even look like excessive force to me- more like bordering on a gang-style stomping. The only things in this video that confirmed the fact that they were cops were the uniforms, baton, and mace.

Is New Yorks violent neighborhoods like walking to disneyland compared to the Kensington , Allegheny West, Fairhill, Hartranft, Strawberry Mansion Nicetown/tioga neighborhoods of Philly .

Also ive been hearing people mention the acronym the rocks in queens is this a bad neighborhood and I also am hearing from people that parts of queens are bad if so could somebody tell me where the high crime sections of queens are. Also does manhattan still have its share of shooting and gun violence also . Im trying to get info on the worst of the worst areas in NYC Five boroughs and information on those areas. New York City is the most beautiful city in the world but Im sure it still has a pretty tough and dangerous underworld . Please any info would be greatly appreciated. Sincerely Mike ]

@ sandsharkboy stop trolling threads if you're just here to hype up your hood... This is an NYC crime thread... Fact is, yes, Philly as a whole is worse than NYC... end of story, thank you for your time...

Getting back to real news...

Arrest of Chinese livery drivers has industry on edge - NY Daily News

Feds charge 12 people for stealing cell-phone *account info in $250 million cloning scheme* - NY Daily News

Read the entire article of the first story... If what the workers are claiming is actually true, it's amazing how low certain people in the government will stoop to keep their people at the top...

There's also another article about a case in LA that I don't even feel comfortable posting on here because of its graphic nature but if you do read it... you'll realize how some people really just don't deserve to live... I can't imagine in what mind would somebody even think about doing what this guy did to his students... All we can do is pray for the children that had this sorry excuse for a man as a teacher and hopefully the memories of these incidents can go away with time... When you read all these stories it really can depress you to see the world that we live in...

Wow this is a total outrage!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Cop convicted of planting crack on innocent people could have gotten 4 years but cried to the judge and got PROBATION!. Poor him, he cried that he lost his pension and his job!! WTF!!!!!!!

Ex-cop Jason Arbeeny cries for judge, gets probation;*Judge Gustin Reichbach could have given him 4 years* - NY Daily News

And this is why we have a police force who do whatever they want, whenever they want...there are no repercussions and the residents are held hostage. What about the lives he wrecked? How many other people did he do this too that didn't come forward????????? They probably lost their jobs, friends, trust, sleep, health....WTF!!!!!!

My advice to people: stay away from cops, they are not your friends, they are not there to protect or serve you but to make their quotas and protect and serve themselves.

I don't understand why people think it's cool to "hype" their hoods with higher crime rates.

"Hey guys I'm cool because I live in a crime infested dump!!! LOL!!"

Even 4 years wouldn't be enough. Should have got 15 years.

Thats what people like Luis Ortiz are for, to bring balance to the department.
