From Daily Mail: New York City’s murder rate has risen 55 percent in 2019 so far, according to NYPD statistics.

Numbers show that, from the start of 2019 through Sunday, there have been 48 grisly murders in New York City, compared to just 31 in the same seven-week period in 2018.

However, overall crime in the Big Apple is down eight percent.

A majority of those killings have taken place in Brooklyn North, where 15 murders have been recorded so far this year. By this time last year there were a total of three murders in all 10 precincts in that area, marking a 400 percent increase, according to the New York Daily News.

The number of murders has also increased in northern Queens, where there have been four killings recorded so far. At this time last year, there were none.

The number of shootings in general are on the rise as well. Nonfatal shootings have increased by 69 percent as 22 people have been shot this year, compared to just 13 last year.

The shocking number defies the progress of 2018, where 289 people were murdered, a one percent decrease from 292 people in 2017. 2018 also saw shooting incidents down a total of four percent.

To add to the wave of crime, reports of rape have also risen. There have been 239 reported rapes around the city, 21 percent more than the 198 reported last year in the seven-week time frame.

Other categories of crime such as robbery, felony assault, burglary, grand larceny and grand larceny auto are down six percent and 14 percent so far in 2019.

Cops believe the #MeToo movement has empowered more victims to come forward and report the assaults.
The New York Police Department said they’re working on tackling the violent crime.

‘The NYPD will use these proven tactics to address any temporary upticks so that every New Yorker – regardless of zip code – can live in safety,’ Deputy commissioner Phillip Walzak said to the outlet.

  1. lesser crimes may be down because the criminals don’t have time for them with all of the violent crimes they have to do.

  2. And of course NYC has absurdly strict “gun control” laws. Rapes haven’t risen 21% year over year but “reports” of rapes have, thanks to those empowered pussyhats. But the NYPD is working on it. That’s a real confidence builder

  3. Must be too much pizza and soft drinks.

  4. I don’t want to give any credit to our “Mayor,” “Kaiser Wilhelm,” at all. (Deblasio’s real name is Warren Wilhelm, so I call him “Kaiser Wilhelm.” He definitely does have delusions of adequacy). The fact that “Wilhelm” went public with his animus against the NYPD at the beginning of his mayoralty has a lot to do with these statistics, because although the NYPD is funded, he does not give them the moral support they need. This is what he is responsible for.

    The other factor that accounts for the crime increase in Brooklyn North is the demographics: There are a lot of people moving there from around the country, esp. the Midwest, and there has been an increase of foreigners moving into that area. Certainly if NYC remains a sanctuary city (it has been one since Mayor Koch’s days), this can be said to account for some of it.

    So I give credit to where it’s due, and it’s due to the NYPD and not the Mayor, or many City Council members, for that matter. These numbers that are up are a bad sign, but, overall, NYC remains a relatively safe place to live and do business.

    • Yeah, the cops in any big city do what they can and in NYC they see it all. I used to go into Manhattan a lot during the Giuliani era and I felt perfectly safe. But…how the hell did the peerless present mayor get DiBlasio from Wilhelm? That’s not even close. Trans-ethnic maybe?

    • Do you know the story of how he got from “Wilhelm” (Ger.) to “DeBlasio” (It or Port. Marano)? While he was picking surnames he should have chosen one that is descriptive, like Goofy.

  5. Thanks, Democrats!!

  6. No surprise, the percentage has gone even higher since Magpie Ocasio-Cortez kicked out Amazon.

  7. This calls for accountability in NYC’s leaders. Years ago a huge effort was made to bring the crime rate down. It worked, and the “I love New York” ad campaign was successful in making the city a tourist destination again. That was when leadership was more responsible. Now, with a mayor like De Blasio, NYC will continue to plummet into the abyss of violent crime like Chicago.

  8. So, put another way, VIOLENT crime is up 21%! No wonder he’s so gleeful looking. Maybe he’s jealous of London. If I didn’t know anything about this clown I wouldn’t vote for him on looks alone.
