In Response to Re: RACISM CARD LOOKING A LITTLE DOG-EARED:
The original poster is making an assumption that “stop & frisk” has a causal relationship to the decline in the murder rate. Another relationship during the Giuliani period was the decline of males between 17 – 36 years of age in N,Y,C.. If that age group is involved in the majority of murders & they decline so would the murder rate. I liked Giuliani community patrol strategy & the dealing with small community issues. Example his cleaning up of graffiti & empty lots I the belief that this welcomes those who break the law. Now that is something I believe is causal. The big joke is how the Poster of the original message is the one playing the race card. I have read no others here.

Excellent points, Marlin. The racists here fail to admit that murder rates have drastically fallen across the country over thye last decade and no other city had the racist "stop and frisk" policy that the racists and Conservatives claims was so effective.
Murder Rate Drops to 33-Year Low
The U.S. murder rate last year hit the lowest level since 1966 as the number of serious crimes committed nationwide fell for the eighth year in a row, the FBI said today.
In its 422-page report detailing final U.S. crime statistics for 1999, the FBI said the murder count stood at 15,533 last year, or one murder every 34 minutes.
The murder rate worked out to six murders for every 100,000 U.S. inhabitants, the lowest level since 1966 when there were 5.7 murders for every 100,000 people.
The overall violent crime rate sank to a 21-year low — 525 murders, rapes, robberies and assaults for every 100,000 residents. The last time the figure was lower — 498 in 1978 — came well before an epidemic of crack cocaine sent violent crime soaring in the mid-1980s.

This Most Recent Decline in U.S. Violent Crime Is Different From the Last One
Yes, Marlin, the racists here want others to think it was their racist policies that reduced the murder rates. So far from the truth....and they wonder why their bovine feces smells like it does. They are PATHETIC excuses for Americans...the scum of this great country.
