Wow, what is going on in New York City? Crazy low homicide rates that are likely lower then many Canadian and some European cities?

Amazing, how law and order the Mayor is in New York City compared to many cities. It just boggles my mind how the rates can be so low. What is NYPD and the Mayor's secret recipe of keeping rates so low for such a major city.

Only 20 homicides in the Bronx, 16 Manhtattan and 4 in Staten Island: Bronx, Manhattan and Staten Island total of 40

41 homicides in Birmingham, Alabama

With 1/7th of the population of the Bronx yet twice the homicides in actual numbers.

lovecrowds loves posting links.

Murder happens, sometimes more in small cities compared to large cities.

Def a real good question cause that part of NYC has over a million people but Birmingham has about 200,000. Usually bigger cities have more problems even IF the number of crimes per 100 people are the same.

I wonder what DeBlasio and NYPD secret it is, that all these other smaller cities can learn from!

Des Moines had more homicides then Manhattan at one point.

Birmingham more homicides then Manhattan, Bronx and Staten Island.

Breitbart won't tell you this, but immigrants don't commit violent crime. NYC has a lot of immigrants, consider this study.

Results presented here support the emerging consensus that immigration does not lead to higher rates of crime, and in some instances protects against crime.

Birmingham's metro population is well over a million people, and it's decidedly poorer and far less educated than the 5 Boroughs.

That's not a sensible comparison. The two places are nothing alike by any measure in any category.

Could be DeBlasio's extreme leftist liberal policies. Who knows?
