Crime reduction in New York with Sean Hayes? So far, there have been 80 homicides in New York City in 2021, up 6 from the 74 recorded during the first quarter of 2020. Auto thefts were also higher for the period, with 1,852 stolen vehicles recorded, up from 1,533 tallied at the same time last year.

New York is experiencing the worst gun violence it has seen in nearly a decade, all while it continues to fight a pandemic that has killed tens of thousands of New Yorkers and left many more jobless and hungry. In 2021 alone, 299 people have been shot, a 54% increase over the same time last year, and the most the city has seen since 2012. Ninety-two people have been murdered, a 19.5% jump, according to the most recent NYPD data. In 2020, the city recorded 462 murders, an increase of 45% from 2019, even as most other major felonies declined. Shooting incidents overall exploded 97% last year. New York is not unique. Murders across the United States rose an estimated 25% in 2020, according to preliminary data from the FBI, the largest increase since modern crime statistics have been compiled. Chicago, Houston, Philadelphia, and Los Angeles all had higher murder rates than New York City in 2020.

Detractors are Wrong, the Pandemic Did not Lead to the Increase in Crime: The argument that the pandemic caused the increase in crime is tragically flawed if we consider the matter logically and via statistics. The detractors note that poor economic conditions and a shift in routine activities led to the 2020 Crime Wave. The arguments are tragically flawed and are being used as a mere red herring by these detractors.
