Man is shot on NYC subway

Right after Eric Adams had crowed that subway crimes were declining.

Because they are declining. Declining doesn’t mean they’re non-existent. It means they’re happening less frequently.

But I don’t even mind it. Let the transplants leave if they’re too scared of NY. This isn’t Kansas.

But they aren’t, r1.

R1 I've not seen one valid data set indicating they are declining.

Do more research then.

OP is a reductive aspie millennial who has Chicken Little syndrome and needs everything to be “like literally perfect” or they’ll “like freak out”. Life is messy. Go check out Pakistan now or time travel and live with Vikings, either way you’ll come back grateful.

If you live around a feral population, you have to accept that there are certain risks.

NYC, Philly and LA are turning third world.

OP is just another rightwing MAGA infesting our board with his crappy politics.

Go back to the freeper board, OP.

How is this news worthy?

That's such a dumb statement r4. Well I haven't read it so it isn't true!

A simple Google will show that subway crime is down 16% October to January compared to October through January of last year. It's only based on three months worth of data, but that's the data.

R12 "That's such a dumb statement. A simple Google will show that..."

Oh bless your heart. "I googled it, it must be true - it said what I wanted!!" Thank you for that laugh, sweetie.

The New York Times put the story on the front page of their website.

They're better judges there than you are as to what's newsworthy.

A shooting on the subway is pretty damn newsworthy. Esp. in Manhattan. This was on Canal St.

Crime statistics are poor measures of actual crime because they only measure reported crime. In many neighborhoods the locals would be afraid to report crime; in immigrant neighborhoods they might not trust the police.

It's white supremacy that's causing this.
