De Blasio and the NYPD blame leap year for crime spike

Sounds like these people used some Common Core methodology.


Via NY Post: Overall index crime has gone up — and it’s all because of the leap year, NYPD officials and Mayor Bill de Blasio said Tuesday.

“Overall index crime for the month of April as you heard fell 4.2 percent. That brings us to approximately a 1 percent increase for the year to date,” explained Deputy Commissioner Dermot Shea.

“We’re carrying an extra year this year with the leap year,” he added. “An extra day,” de Blasio interjected. “And we’re seeing an increase, an extra day,” Shea continued, “and we’re seeing an increase in grand larceny complaints, particularly skimming.”

There have been 31,132 index crimes so far this year, compared to 30,807 crimes over the same period of time in 2015, police said.

Since the average number of index crimes a day is 257.28, the extra day at the end of February could’ve accounted for the uptick in incidents.

Shea said four of the five boroughs have seen a crime decrease, but in the Bronx, crime went up 8 percent. There were 27 homicides recorded in April 2016, compared to 25 in April of last year.

  2. What a load of garbage. I know he is stupid, but does the Police Dept really buy into that goofy statistic . . . if so they are all stupid! How could anybody say such a goofy thing with a straight face.

  3. I suppose the boss ordered you to say dumb stuff, after all, your job may be at risk.


    • weezy . . . that can be the only possible reason one would parrot such stupid remarks (maybe they had their fingers crossed behind their backs!)


  4. What a bunch of morons. Statistically that particular day would have more crimes reported to even matter not two months reporting plus four boroughs falling in crime rate during the same period. What does grand larceny have to do with leap year? If anything it is probably due to entitled feed me for free mentalities and a crappy “Democratically” destroyed Obamacare type of economy.


  5. De Blasio is proof that the mental hospitals should never have been closed!


  6. Damn, have we swerved into the Twilight Zone, or what?

    The sad thing is, there are a lot of goobermint ejumikated morons living there that will probably buy into it.


  7. That had to be like listening to a Abbot and Costello routine.


  8. Nothing but
    sawdust between his ears, methinks.
