good logic

Surely this single crime proves that all crime stats everywhere in a city of 8 million people are completely fake


Keep believing that Crime is down good logic. people are not stupid although many are as they are being lied to by our leaders in NYC. After DumBlasio said NYC is in line for a record low murders I have counted 8 on my own from just the papers and TV news. There are many we don’t hear about or hear about weeks after. There are crimes in LIC we don’t hear about on this site until it is announced a week later. Just LOOK UP COMPSTAT and see how a computer crime program can be manipulated.

These actions have collectively undermined public safety and constrained law enforcement effectiveness.
