New York is crime-free for a whole day


Mayor Bloomberg

FOR only the second time in a year, New York has managed to go a day without any shootings or stabbings.

The last time the city saw a 24-hour blood-free streak, on November 26, 2012, no one could recall a similar occurrence.

Even at a time of record drops in murders, there are an average of 3.6 people shot each day in the city.

“In the last month, we have seen the NYPD do the following: prevent a single homicide from occurring for an entire week — a first in New York City; catch the killer in a 22-year-old murder; and now pull off the feat of no murders, no shootings and no stabbings for an entire day in a city of 8.4 million,” a spokesman for Mayor Mike Bloomberg said.

“The examples of why we have the finest police department in the world just keep coming.”

    The brick-and-mortar grocery store isn’t going away anytime soon. Amazon’s recently announced $13.7 billion purchase of high-end grocer Whole Foods notwithstanding, e-commerce has been much slower (so far) to break into the supermarket business than into other sectors of the economy. Only 7 percent of US consumers shopped online for groceries in the past mon […]
