As the class divide grows in the city expect these crimes to continue to increase.

However, why don't they get with the times and learn how to scam people online?

Excuses. No where else in the United States offers as much social welfare for the poor as NYC. Every society in the world (including Communist ones) has people who have more than others.

No doubt a product of de blasio’s back off policing policies. The criminals know it & the rare enforcement of quality of life issues or ‘broken windows’ create a menacing atmosphere that only emboldens criminals. The growing divide between the haves and haves not has little to do with it in my opinion. The criminal element exists regardless.

de Bozo took a city that was the safest large city in the country and now after a term and a half of his liberal policies designed to weaken policing, encouraging criminal and misdemeanor behaviors, we are starting to see crime on the rise again.

I remember discussions here after a year or two into his first term and how his supporters would say that since crime was still falling at the time and that was evidence that his policies were not encouraging crime.

Well guess what? It takes time and now we are finally see crime reverse. Soon he will be out and he will leave a city worse off to the next mayor (who too will be even more Left than him) to deal with.

Is crime really going up?

The latest articles I've read all say the same, 2018 was another new low for NYC crime rates. Seems to be the real 'culprit' here is media sensationalism. One person gets slashed on the subway and suddenly the entire MTA is under attack, everyone is at risk, Democrats have failed us, we need hard line shove down and ask later policing back ASAP... etc...

You don't even ride the subways, so what do you know? There are all sorts of mentally ill people riding the subways, many of whom are a menace to themselves and others around them. Have you heard of such a thing called "suppression of data"? It exists, and it's real, and this administration is VERY good at suppressing information and twisting stats to fit their agenda.

Those burglaries sounds like a someone knew when the places will be vulnerable. Such as a ConED person or UPS/FEDEx person who knows the area and knows the residents are normally not at home at those times or are more relaxed on security at those times as they seem to happen first thing in the morning when just leaving for work or in the afternoon when leaving to pick kids up from school.

I wouldn't be surprised if when caught the person worked for a delivery company or utility company.

Agreed. Probably used a on the books job as pretense to gain access to the facilities for off the books scheming. Only a couple of smart criminal groups did this back in the 90s in NY and LA
