    Yes, but now that it is an important issue for Mayor Bloomberg and the NYPD in their marketing for tourism and attracting people to move into the city, they have to do it to a more extreme level to supress any notion of a rise.

    It was an important issue for the same reasons last year, the year before, etc. If all the data is faulty, then you can't pick and choose what you will accept as true fact, and draw any conclusions.

    It is ridiculous to think that anyone without access to data can have a feel for whether crime rates rise or fall year-to-year. You can only make that assessment over the long term.

    This may be the Age of Information, but that makes it also the age of disinformation.

    Nope. The police in the area are notorious for their slow arrival time, so I don't bother. I've called them before for other issues and they never showed up.

    So, are these crimes even reported?

    Probably not. I've been robbed and not reported it, so I imagine some people don't report it either.

    It probably means he was not from your neighborhood.

    And if you did see him, what would you do?

    Lethal force.

    What else?

    Not much you can do.
