What New York has done with its crime rates in the past two decades is staggering. In 1990 the five boroughs saw 2,245 murders. Now, it's a full order of magnitude lower.

We have already had our day. in any case majority of urban American murders is an American urban problem rampant in Texas too, Austin just has a comfortable demographic slide. It's a full bore American fuckin problem.

It is a huge problem, but don't forget that the United States experienced a huge decline in the murder rate since its peak during the 70s and 80s. We're at less than half of the peak levels, and close to pre-1960's murder rate. The national murder rate is about 1/3rd of the automobile death rate*. There are definitely places that have a long ways to go. I just wouldn't call it rampant.

I live in a city that still suffers from an overly high murder rate. I wish we could somehow replicate the magic that New York has over the past couple of decades. I also hope we continue the downward momentum that began in the early 90's


*(that was mid 2000's, not sure if Auto death rate has changed much since then)

Wow. These numbers are insane. I know at the beginning of the year people were chalking up the increase to an unusually mild winter, but something else has got to be at play here...

Seattle has 19 murders after a string of shootings in the past couple weeks. Last year's total was 20, so, that's a pretty steep decline in public safety.

Chicago has a handful of pockets of extreme concentrated poverty that drives its murder rate sky high. Most of the city is no more dangerous than much of Manhattan. New York, on the other hand, has become so expensive and gentrified, alongside a very effective crackdown on crime, that it has lost most of those pockets; New York's murder rate in the early 1990s was worse than Chicago's current rate.

Philadelphia is at 150. We have seen a pretty steep incline in murders in North Philadelphia the past few days. Hopefully it's just an anomaly. We are on track to end the year around the same amount of homicides as last year. Should end the year around 320. Last years total was 324.

Thanks. So Philly's murder rate per 100,000 is 9.83.

i cant tell for sure, because for some reason the LAPD stopped updating the Comstat form online in feb, but using the crime mapping software and filtering for agency (LAPD), there have been 85 murders in LA City as of June 2nd. this is probably low based on historical numbers, but would be great if its actually true
