New York City sees increase in murder rates despite increase in gun arrests

"There has to be accountability — the rest of the criminal justice system has to do its job," a law-enforcement source said.

Murder in New York City is up compared to this time last year with the NYPD reporting that November saw 30 murders compared to 25 homicides in 2021.

According to the New York Post, three other crime categories are up and "Felony assaults were up 1,957 to 2,016, or 3 percent; robberies rose from 1,439 to 1,491, an increase of 3.6 percent, and car thefts jumped from 1034 to 1,131, or 9.4 percent.

Overall, major crime was up 39 percent in August, up from 34 percent over the summer, and has been surging at rates as high as 50 percent since 2020.

November say fewer rapes, as only 110 victims were raped in New York City during the month, compared to 128 last year. 

Burglaries were down 6 percent, with 1,231 reported compared to 1,310 last year. Burglary is when you illegally enter a building with the intent to commit a crime. Grand larcenies were down 5.5 percent, with 4,187 compared to 4,430 last year. Grand larceny is theft of property higher than a petty fiscal value.

In August, Adams said NYC was too crime-ridden for illegal immigrants who were getting off buses anywhere else but the Big Apple as they were being transported up from Texas.

On Sunday, Adams said, "Reducing crime in the city was never going to happen overnight, but thanks to the NYPD's efforts, major crimes were down in November and shootings continue to see double-digit decreases."

New York City has seen 33 percent fewer shootings in November compared to last year, where 119 incidents were reported compared to this year's 80. Gun arrests are up as well, with 4,319 arrests compared to last year's 4,155, a 4 percent increase.

"The increased gun arrests and reduction in shootings are not coincidental. The question remains — what happens to the shooters? There has to be accountability — the rest of the criminal justice system has to do its job," a law-enforcement source told the New York Post.

Despite the focus on gun arrests, murders, violent crime, remain steady at double digit increases since 2019, the year cashless bail was implemented in the city. 

NYC subway crime is up 41 percent this year with violent incidents that include marauders dressed all in green terrorizing straphangers, victims thrown onto the tracks, and children being stabbed to death. Mayor Eric Adams told his citizens in October that the solution to warding off violent criminals is to stop looking at phones and stop listening to music as New Yorkers make their ride.

1,917 felony transit crimes have been committed between January and October 2022, up from the 1,367 in the same time frame last year.
