No murders in just a week in a population of 8.35 million is not necessarily statistically significant.

Hmmmmmmm. I wonder if this means that some percentage of the “routine” murders didn’t happen because the murderers were furloughed?

Sad comment on our society when a week without any murders is newsworthy
