Science Says These Police Tactics Reduce Crime

Post by Didge on Sun Nov 12, 2017 8:24 am

When Bill de Blasio first ran for New York City mayor four years ago, ending “stop-and-frisk” police searches was a cornerstone of his campaign. Critics warned halting the practice would fuel crime. But this week de Blasio coasted into reelection against a backdrop of historically low crime rates.

The city of more than 8.5 million people has seen fewer than 300 murders so far in 2017. That puts its body count lower than much-smaller jurisdictions including Baltimore, a city of fewer than 620,000 people where 303 people have been murdered this year, and Chicago, where the number has risen above 580 in a population of 2.7 million.


So what factors can really help drive down crime? The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine said in a report released Thursday that certain “proactive” policies aimed at preventing crime before it happens—including stop and frisk—show mixed results. Yet it is not enough to simply identify what policies appear to reduce crime, a panel convened by the National Academies cautions in the report. Authorities must also consider the real-world risks of applying these approaches in ways that are racist, biased or illegal, they wrote.

The reduction in crime over the last 10-20 years may be similar on a graph to the lower numbers of blacks living there over the same period...


Have a look at graphs of crime rates over last few decades, and graphs of population of blacks over same time frame...


What do you see...?

What I see is white supremacist Tommy Monk peddling his usual fascist-inspired, xenophobic and racially-based deflections and misdirections...

Did you actually check the two statistics of crime rates compared to population numbers...?


I know that you didn't.

I did not see you had posted such racial claptrap

Have you looked at ones where crimes is high with whites and Latinos?

Or are crime levels higher when there is a high level of relative poverty within certain areas, no matter the ethnic group?

Or is your ability to look at anything always racial?

This article shows that New York has seen a reduction in crimes and African Americans make up 25% of New York city

Where does that leave your racial absurd thinking?

So lets see all this evidence for all areas witin the US with graphs as you say, based on the breakdown of ethnic groups in each area throughout the US?

Cool

Tommy,  Tommy,  Tommy...

If you had even the faintest comprehension of 'statistical analysis' methodologies, then you would understand how you need to look at the wider demographics of a situation --  not just ethnicity, but also the local economics, poverty levels, education access and availabilty, unemployment levels vs. employment opportunities, local politics and religions, family dynamics  --  rather than simply grabbing at anything that might fit your desperate and warped petty agendas..

Otherwise, you're simply rehashing more of your usual tired old racist-based nonsense.

I think Tommy, you don't seem to realise that crimes happen in poorer areas. Where there is poverty, there is crime.
White people commit crimes, did you know that? Rolling Eyes

But have been lucky by geography to have had access to education

I was born into poverty and strove to get out of this.

I was lucky to have acces to education

The reality is relative poverty sees a rise in criminality

Its prevalent everywhere when it happens

So you have never known  what it is like to really struggle then and you place a smile.

Kind of placed yourself out of the equation here

My smile was in reference to my ethnicity not making me the law abiding person, that someone suggested.

Yes, I was more fortunate than most of the planet. I was born to white, middle class parents that gave a shit about their children, and had the income to provide them a decent upbringing.

Or as my girlfriend likes to say to me at times, I have white privilege. Cool

How is being white fortunate?

Its a label

It did me no favours

As I was born into poverty, hen ce the absurdity that people place on colours

It only does when people are racist

Well I had parents that gave a shit too and then never had the money and had every single one of us end up in University

That is not white privilidge

That is wealth priviliage.

There clearly is an idiot born every minutute

Or simple one in your case when you perceive something based on skin colour and not on geographical luck

Or I could see that both geography and race, along with a myriad of other factors could have complex and difficult to measure effects on people. Cool
