This doesn't seem to work for Chicago.

Sadly you are correct, the killings are not seasonal.

I prefer to do my murdering in the spring.

Reminds me of a book I once read. Can't remember the name, but it WAS a book.

It's our Midwestern work ethic. We dress for the weather to get the job done.

Minneapolis usually does murder free Januarys, too cold to hate. Streak got broken this year when a heat wave hit.

They just haven't found the bodies because the East River is frozen.

For being the most densely populated spot in the US I gotta say the greater NYC area is doing damn good in many categories...

Like being wet and cold...

That's how she was last night.

Maybe it's because the cops just don't go outside and find any bodies.
 
2013-01-26 01:20:12 PM  
That's because of the new lower capacity magazine law.

Great job New Yorkers, on not killing each other for 9 whole days.

Here's a gold star.

And their new AWB.  Isn't it obvious that it's impossible to kill anyone without an AR-15 and 8 or more bullets?  If that wasn't the case then this law would be a completely pointless "feel good" measure designed to give a false sense of safety while doing nothing at all to curb gun crime.

When you're a Jet you're a Jet all the way. From your first cigarette to... fark it's cold. Rumble is cancelled. Let's go get some hot cocoa.

They're not as fashion-conscious in Chicago as in New York. They will wear gloves and even mittens. When their mother tells them it's cold outside and they should put on a sweater, they put on a sweater. Chicago mothers are tough. They can beat you to death with your own arm. So I have heard.

New Yorkers are too cool for school. So they take every snow day they get.
 
2013-01-26 02:15:57 PM  
This is a cool story, actually. For one thing, it involves a literal nine day wonder.

We usually just get the figurative kind, and they don't last nine days because the web news cycle is about three hours, judging from Fark headlines. This story is already old news to somebody who saw it before you did and is therefore better than you are.
 
2013-01-26 02:17:36 PM  
I am glad to see that nobody has been murdered in New York for nine days.

That they know of.

Meh. I'm too cynical and worldly. I don't even know when I'm being ironic any more.

In Florida, once temps drop below 40F or so at night, crime rates (across the board) plummet. Practically nothing happens when temps dip into the 20s.

It's not a lack of law enforcement though -- the cops are out picking off speeders left & right even when it's too damn cold outside. In a way it's poetic justice to watch the cop freeze his ass off to write a speeding ticket for a 20-30 minute traffic stop.

I was wearing so many layers this last week, I don't think a bullet would've penetrated far enough to do any damage.

fark yeah!

They were so rare. I was a jealous little farker seeing all the rest of you assholes in flyover contry getting so many snow days.

So yeah, what you said, prick.
 
2013-01-26 02:31:52 PM  
Here is a good explanation for why crime in NYC is dropping in general. The short version is that they're spending money on police work rather than just locking everyone up.
 
2013-01-26 02:36:33 PM  
Makes me wonder what the NYPD classified the killings as so Bloomberg could brag about going nine days without a homicide.

Meh.

The media is having a field day over the gun debate. Did you hear, RESIDENTS of NEWTOWN were among the 1,000 demonstrators! A town of 27,000+ people. I'd rather know how many of the small group present actually had children at the school. I know in other towns of roughly the same population, there are a number of elementary schools. BUT THEY'RE FROM THE SAME TOWN.

I'm surprised that NYC's murder rate is lower than Baltimore's murder rate even though Baltimore is the smaller city.

Wow, New York's new gun laws really work. ;-/

It's amazing how many suicides in New York shoot themselves in the back of the head.

Bunch of reasons, crime rates are dropping everywhere, but especially in bigger cities. I also think part of it is big cities are getting to be expensive places to live, that tends to push more marginal people out over time. Then there is the leaded gasoline theory.
 
2013-01-26 04:06:57 PM  
The only potential snag in the NYPD's run is a woman found dead yesterday in Brooklyn. She was half-naked, and cops were calling her death "suspicious."

I'm surprised the article said there were no murders, rather than no reported murders.

What exactly is this leaded gasoline theory? Ive been hearing it mentioned several times. Care to explain?
