Overall city murders are up 8 from 130 to 138 this year. The Bronx has seen the most dramatic increase with 50 murders from the start of 2018 until today vs. 26 during the same period last year.

Wonder whatís driving this after years of progress.

Nothing. When a city sees historical lows itís natural for murders to go up sometimes. NYC has 8 million people and even with this increase itís not like nyc is going to see over 500 homicides like the city saw as recently as 2011. And even when NYC saw 500+ murderes yearly it was still considered a low crime city.

90% jump is not simply an "increase" but an alarming figure. We shouldn't look to go back to the days of there being 10-15 people killed over a weekend like during the 2000s.

Yes 90% for one borough. But hereís the thing I tend to notice cities with low murder rates usually have these once in a while large spikes in crime every so often. Doesnít shock me one bit!
