New York Times Can’t Have It Both Ways, NYT Correctly Writes There is NO Immigrant CrimeWave (All Violent Crime At Near Record Lows) But NYT Incorrectly Implies American Public School Students at Great Risk of Getting Shot/Killed: NYT’s Commenter Gives The Correct Assessment

New York Times Can’t Have It Both Ways, NYT Correctly Writes There is NO Immigrant CrimeWave (All Violent Crime At Near Record Lows) But NYT Incorrectly Implies American Public School Students at Great Risk of Getting Shot/Killed: NYT’s Commenter Gives The Correct Assessment.

Quick facts, look up the FBI crime stats, murder rates at near record lows, in the 5 per 100,000 range, last time we were in the 5’s was roughly 1957 and we have close to 3 times more guns in the America of 2018 as compared to 1957.

The so called experts that I see appearing on CNN keep citing “gun deaths” when they know they are including suicide, a problem that needs to be improved but an entirely different problem than gun homicides.

In fact if you further break down the American homicide rate, the gun homicide rate is roughly between 2 and 3 people per 100,000. Most of the gun deaths sadly are in inner cities that are plagued by gangs and drug problems.

OK so back to the two articles written by the New York Times, both can’t be true, violent crime is at near record lows while American public school students have a legit fear of getting shot to death, the former is true as the NY Times wrote the article to correctly prove that immigrants are not causing some crazy crime wave:

Most areas experienced decreases in all types of violent crime. The change in assault rates ranged from a 34 percent decline to a 29 percent rise, while robbery rates declined in the range of 12 percent to 57 percent, and murder rates declined in the range of 15 percent to 54 percent.

This analysis is one of the most comprehensive longitudinal studies of the local immigrant-crime relationship. It spans decades of metropolitan area data, incorporating places with widely differing social, cultural and economic backgrounds, and a broad range of types of violent crime.

….

Immigrant populations in the United States have been growing fast for decades now. Crime in the same period, however, has moved in the opposite direction, with the national rate of violent crime today well below what it was in 1980.

Murder rates at 1957 levels, violent crime rates at near record lows in most American cities, so how could American public school students, many in leafy suburbs that have less than 1 per 100,000 murder by gun rates be in legit fear of getting shot and killed?

The answer, they fear it because of idiotic mass media coverage of school shootings and New York Times articles that write about their fears without writing the facts, FACT- Add up all the schools in America and then divide by the number of kids killed in mass shootings and you will find more people struck by lightning, but here is the NY Times serving an agenda and not serving journalism:

Shootings are so common that students talk in frighteningly practical terms about the location of doors and windows in their classrooms as risk factors. They calculate escape routes. And they ponder hiding spots in wide-open rooms.

A random New York Times commenter does a better job of analysis than a highly paid NY Times writer:

This is absolutely ridiculous. I am incensed by the stupidity.

Statistical fact: an American kid has a greater chance of being struck by lightning than being shot in school. (I calculated that using CDC and NOAA data from this decade.)

Stop all the hand-wringing over how some of the Texas kids were “not surprised” their school got shot up. Of course they weren’t surprised! That doesn’t mean their expectation is even remotely connected to statistical reality. They have a distorted, funhouse-terror view of the world, crafted by media like the NYT, which obsessively cover school shootings, and which help cause future shootings by offering glory to the perpetrators. (Let us not forget that the media makes money off these incidents.)

This fear and stupidity is a party-neutral phenomenon. If an Islamic terror attack happens somewhere in middle America, you could easily find some ignorant right-winger to interview who would say they weren’t at all surprised, that they had lived in fear of Islamic terror attacks before one happened in their town, and they knew it would happen there eventually. Of course, such fear of Islam is statistically ridiculous. Liberals have no trouble recognizing this irrationality in their political opponents — yet they exhibit the same irrational fear and obsession in their own feelings toward guns.

Everyone needs to get a grip. And the media need to halt their socially destructive practice of using these incidents as a profit opportunity.
