Dumb a$$ De Blasio is off to a great start with his progressive/socialist policies. All the predictions off higher crime are coming true, I just didn't think it would get here this soon, only a month into his term, Smh. The worse is yet to come. Would give anything to have Bloomberg or Giuliani back. They knew how to keep crime in check. This tall bozo of a clown we have as a mayor is going to undo all the positive changes NYC has accomplished in the last 20 years.

Way too soon to criticize DeBlasio. However, with stop n frisk gone, the NYPD are now busy ticketing jaywalkers and beating up old chinese dudes. I feel safer already.

Clearly all the murderers were just waiting for the administration to change before committing their crimes! DeBlasio knew that with stop & frisk gone his private assassin squads of colored youths would be free to strike!! Only Super Billionaire Bloomberg can save us from this armed army of color!!!

THE SKY IS FALLING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

THE SKY IS FALLING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

33% up from WHAT? The same time last year? Proves nothing.

All the morons come out of the woodwork with their "analysis" of the new Mayor a month into his term. Give me a break. Like the previous poster said, all the murderers were just waiting for the change in administration to commit their murders!

I would be willing to be stopped and frisked 10 times a day if it saved one life.

Of course, I would never be stopped cause I don't run around looking like a dirt bag. And don't ask, what does a dirt bag look like.

If you have to ask, you probably are one!

It is insulting that we care more about offending low lifes than we do keeping decent people safe. Of course it could be a voter issue, come to think of it!

Seeing as stop n frisk essentially caused a behavioral change in certain activities, eg illegal weapon carrying became too risky (so the hothead spur-of-the-moment murder rate dropped - one had to go get the gun from the concealed location, etc.. you really had to want to shoot that gun), and because behavioral changes in a society are slow to change again, its unlikely this would be clearly linked to the change in policing. Statistically its probably not reaching any significance level at the moment. Give it a year and then compare, by then new behavioral patterns on the street in response to new police tactics will be clearer. If it becomes relativekly un-risky to walk around with a gun in your pants, then those who wanted to do that will start doin it again.

De Blasio hasn't even been a full month in office and we got partisan hacks, like hilltopjay, whining, moaning and spinning stats with the the hopes that something will stick in the back of the public conscience.

I say, give the man a year before rushing to judgment. It's way too early to make any meaningful comparisons.

Come on hilltop, you're a regular poster and we know you're smarter than this. Leave these posts to drive-by trolls.

From the article: "Last year, the Big Apple racked up 334 homicides in 365 days, the lowest in the city’s recorded history."

Seeing as last year was a record, it's very possible that the murder rate could go up this year. If the number goes up to 400 again, I won't blame DeBlasio. Last year was just a statistical anomaly. If things start returning to the way they were in the early 90s, then we can blame the man.
