The president murders last week?
No murders in just a week in a population of 8.35 million is not necessarily statistically significant.
it also means that new york is too expensive for murderers...check out newark, union city and parts of CT if you want the real stats.
Hmmmmmmm. I wonder if this means that some percentage of the “routine” murders didn’t happen because the murderers were furloughed?
Which enemies of the state got temporary reprieves?
Murder rate down.
Gas Prices down.
How much worse will it get?
They ‘ve yet to recover bodies.
Sad comment on our society when a week without any murders is newsworthy
I thought everything was supposed to fall apart after ‘Stop ‘n Frisk’ was ruled unconstitutional.
The Government Shutdown strikes again.
Sure there were.
They just haven’t found the bodies yet.
