    Crime and Enforcement Activity in New York City (Jan 1 – Dec 31, 2020) - Culture, Race & Economy - AALBC.com’s Discussion Forums


    the title of the post is 
    Crime and Enforcement Activity in New York City (Jan 1 – Dec 31, 2020) 
    The post body is
    Why don't you use the terms white on white crime or asian on asian crime?

    These are not the same issues at all in my view. 
    I will do them one by one, 
    Statistics of Crime plus enforcement activity in any time frame 

    I read the introduction of the pdf report< https://www1.nyc.gov/assets/nypd/downloads/pdf/analysis_and_planning/year-end-2020-enforcement-report-20210721.pdf > shared , like all statistics,all statistics,  it is by default misleading in a way.
    I quote said pdf using quotations and comment using brackets
    "Crime Complaint Reports contain information on the crime victims’ race and ethnicity as recorded by the officers or precinct clerical staff interviewing the victim or complainant. "
    <<A complainant is recorded as a crime victim. That is the first problem. Complaining is not being a victim or being criminally acted upon. Complaining can be someone calling law enforcement about activity in a neighbor's house, that offers no crime toward them. >>
    " The victim’s description of any non-arrested suspects will also be recorded on the crime complaint report. "
    <<the prior sentence already stated that a crime viction can be a complainant, sequentially, if someone is complaining about a group of black people or suspected black people, the law enforcer will record that. But that means the statistics on potential offenders is by default erroneous>>
    " Arrests made by the responding officers will be recorded on an arrest report associated with the crime complaint report and used to initiate the booking system. "
    <<The question is obvious, if an arrest is made and the race is not the same as the suspect both are recorded. So a disconnect exists between the suspect count and arrest count>>
    "Additional information was drawn from a separate Homicide and Shooting Database that collects additional statistical information for Murder and Shooting incidents."
    <<Homicide and shooting's do not or do not have to use the mentioned style of statistical record keeping. More importantly, the illegal or criminal activity, not the same thing, that does not involve murder or shooting which is most crimes or illegal activity in NYC is based on the defined system.>>
    "The crime complaint and arrest data contained in this report represent crimes occurring from January 1, 2020 thru December 31, 2020 for the general crime complaint and arrest data (compiled on January 22, 2020). The Murder and Shooting tables and charts are also based on incidents that occurred through December 31, 2020 as are the statistics presented for Firearm arrests (compiled on January 15, 2020)"
    <<None shooting or homicide crimes re from january 1st 2020 to december 31st 2020, while homicide or shooting crimes has an unstated beginning but ends at december 31st 2020, that is a clear statistical manipulation>>
    "Stop Question and Frisk data and Violent Crime Suspect information are taken from the New York City Police Department’s Stop, Question and Frisk Database which is also the source of the quarterly report on Stop Question and Frisk Activity supplied to the New York City Council for all 4 quarters 2020"
    <<In the financial world the quaters of a year can begin in the prior year, no clarification of when quarters begin or end is stated so the stop and frisk data has a clarification issue based on this descriptive segment. IT is assumption to assume the four quarters involve in one calendar year, they don't have to>>
    "Commercial victimizations are generally noted on crime complaint reports and are excluded from the statistics dealing with specific categories of crime"
    <<Crimes against businesses are excluded from statistics dealing with specific categories of crime... means they have disconnected relevant information in these statistics. To which specific crimes, they do not say.>>
    "However it is likely that a small number of commercial victimizations may be inadvertently included in the victim data when a report is not properly classified as a commercial victimization.Those cases would generally present the race/ethnicity of employees as the crime victims."
    <<So crimes against a business are excluded from specific categories of crime and are not placed in victim data. Thus, crimes against businesses can't be used for this report if the crime doesn't involve a murder or shooting , which use an unstated set of rules, since a business is usually not stated as a victim>>
    " The arrest statistics presented here do not include arrests made by federal agencies"
    <<So arrests in the financial sector of NYC, that fall under the securities and exchange commission which happen every day are not in these records, arrests in the immigration sector under federal jurisdiction like I.C.E. are not in these records. Federal law enforcement actions against terrorist is not in these records. Federal action against illegal drug shipments or transactions are not included in these transactions. The federal law enforcement does many arrests in these fields per day in NYC, none of them being in these reports that supposedly represent an overall law enforcement review is dysfunctional>>
    " Crime complaint reports that were recorded during calendar year 2020 but report an incident occurring in prior years are excluded from these iistatistics. Arrest reports included in these statistics do include arrests made during calendar year 2020 for incidents that may have occurred in prior years"
    <<Arrests statistics could had been made from complaints from prior years, but the complaints are in 2020. Thus a huge disconnect between arrest statistics and complaint statistics>>
    "Black Hispanic and White Hispanic categories have been combined into a single Hispanic category for the statistical tables and charts presented in this report.The categories of Black and White used in tables and charts through out this report therefore represent Black Non-Hispanic and White Non-Hispanic. "
    <<this is dysfunctional, in the latin american community a difference exists between blanco side negra, so placing black hispanis with white hispanic is dysfunctional, while separating black hispanic from black or white hispanic from white is dysfunctional or a lie for a statistical review, even if for brevity, statistics absent comprehension is flawed>>
    "Specific broad Crime categories however may contain only some subcategories for which suspect descriptions are typically available (e.g. a Larceny from the person will normally provide some suspect descriptive information while a larceny from a business office without a witness will not). "
    <<So suspect descriptions from larceny from a business without a witness is not mentioned, meaning if a thief steals from a firm and no witness is present then no suspect data is mentioned, thus if law enforcement doesn't catch the person, no data is given at all, so successful thefts are not recorded>>
    "The tables included in the report contain overall statistics that explain the available victim and suspect information for each broad crime category. The victim count for the period for the example table below, Misdemeanor Criminal Mischief is 35,827. Of these victims, 21,322 had information on the race/ethnicity of a noncommercial victim. Within this crime complaint population suspect information was available for 19,959 suspects and the race/ethnicity of 8,774 of those suspects was available. During calendar year 2020 4,149 misdemeanor criminal mischief arrests were made and 4,131 of these records contained race/ethnicity information."
    <<The example given displays one fact, the victims, which includes complainants, of criminal acts not against businessess, didn't always have information on the phenotype or ethnicity of a suspect. 35,827 victims including complainants/21,322 had information on the phenotype of the person not business victimized. that is 0.595137745 or artihmetic ceiling 60% had information on the race of the victim. Nearly half of the people reporting didn't have information on the phenotype of the victim. That seems odd to me. Then only 19,959 suspect information was available. So from 35,827 victims or complainants at best 0.557093812 or arithmetic ceiling 56% had information on a suspect, and from said 19.959 suspects only 8,744 had information on race which is 0.439601182 which is a arithmetic ceiling 44%. So only 44% of suspects had any phenotypical information from only 56% of victims or complainants being able to provide information on a suspect while only 60% of victims had phenotypical information on themselves. Add that from 19,959 total suspects, whether phenotype was known or not, only 4,149 led to an arrest. That is 0.207876146 or arithmetic ceiling 21% of suspects led to an arrest. And of the arrest, 4,131 phenotype or geographic lineage was known. Thus the only percentage that is above 90% from the Misdemeanor Criminal Mischief Victim, Suspect, Arrestee Race/Ethnicity chart used as an example given in the introduction is to the phenotype of those arrested.  >>
    "The nonarrested suspects are included in the “suspect” statistics in the tables and charts included in this report and arrested individuals are included in the “arrestee” statistics. "
    <<So, suspects who can be picked up at the mere discretion of human law enforcers are added in this chart but do not have to have any bearing on the criminal or illegal act>>
    " In so far as that situation has occurred within calendar year 2020 data presented the suspect and arrests data will overlap and count the same individual as both suspect and arrestee if a follow up arrest has been made during the period."
    <<So, a person arrested is counted twice in the statistics used in the pdf, that alone is corrupt statistical analysis on its own>>
    "The suspect’s description is also recorded at this time but relies on the victim’s assessment of race and ethnicity given their interaction with the suspect. The arrestee race/ethnicity is recorded as a result of the officers assessment of the individual’s identification documents the individual’s physical characteristics and in many cases their prior criminal record. Arrestee race/ethnicity and victim designation of suspect race/ethnicity may therefore vary due to the different methods of determination."
    <<So, the measures to describe a suspect or arrestee are not the same, but the numbers are placed side by side as if validated. Suspects are based on personal views or biases, while arrestee are based on official documents>>
    "Classification as a Shooting incident is based upon a bullet striking the victim. A Shooting incident therefore contains complaints for violent crimes such as Rape, Robbery and Felonious Assault as well as Murders committed with a firearm. This category therefor is not mutually exclusive with the broad crime classifications used in the other tables and charts within this report but is meant to isolate those specific instances where firearms are used to cause harm regardless of the other crimes committed"
    <<so shooting incidents are defined explicity, but are collated with adjunct activities, thus another multiple statistic space and their use in these forms may not occur, but is not explicitly rejected>>
    "Some crime categories are principally proactive enforcement events and will have no specific victim e.g. drug possession, sale and manufacture. The race/ethnicity of arrested individuals is reported for these categories. "
    <<So, actions absent a victim, victims include complainants, are included as arrestees even though no victim exists, alongside those who commit a crime against victims who are not complainants >>
    " Drug allegations may contain suspect race/ethnicity descriptions"
    <<Even though the charts, like criminal misdemeanor mischief will include acts around drug possession, sale, manufacture, that have no victim, the arrestee will be added, or at the least can be added. But the descriptions by suspects/complainants can be biased or have suspect descriptions>>
    "A firearm arrest will be counted if these conditions are met by an arrest containing other charges, some of which may be for serious violent felonies. The Firearm Arrest statistics therefore include arrests for other violent crimes that are also included in other tables within this report"
    <<again, the cconcatenation of statistics in this pdf is a common thread. The subtlety of crime is absent in this report.>>


    First thought, is this pdf from the nypd valid to use as a measure of crime or illegal activity in NYC? The answer is no. 

    The proof, what statistics are utilized/not utilized/uncertain?

    ->complainants plus victimized are touted as victims together. 
    ->suspects are derived from victim questioning, with victims included the unvictimized complainant. 
    ->Records of nonshooting crimes is withone 2020 while records from shooting crimes can refer to data before 2020
    ->each report will allow a victim count circa 35,827 to be utilized which is less than half of one percent of eight million<40,000>, or the arithmetic floor for the population of NYC. Also,circa 60% of the victims< which includes complainants> from 35,827 for example know the race of the victim. Circa 56% of said victims had phenotypical information on the suspect. Of said suspects only 44% had available phenotypical information available. From said suspects only 21% led to an arrest. Over 90% of arrested had phenotypical data available.  

    Not Utilized
    ->The specific number of arrests concerning commercial victimization. It matters cause commercial victims are not touted as being of any phenotype or geographic lineage and yet those who commit crimes against them are added to various statistical charts based on actions during the arrest.  I restate, in a report about crime concerning phenotypical race the relationship between those arrested and those victimized must be even. If you lump the arrested from a commercial victim absent a phenotype to those arrested with a non commercial victim, adding that non commercial victims include complainants, then no balance exists in the statistics.
    ->The number of federal law enforcement activities. It matters cause, in a city like NYC, which has in my view ten million people and white statistics say an arithmetic floor of eight million, have many federal law enforcers acting every day in NYC from the Food and drug administration/securties and exchange commission/immigration and customs enforcement/Federal bureau of investigation/central intelligence agency/national security administation or the many others are not counted in a report that is utilized as a guide to crime or illegality in NYC. I restate, if you don't count federal law enforcement activity in a city like New York City then you can not say your count can be valid as a report on the city.
    ->An unknown quantity of statistics is absent concerning crimes against businesses.
    -> all the successful crimes or illegalities in NYC where no information on suspect is absent but law enforcement was notified. It matters cause if a white person owns a business and says someone stole something, but has no idea who, they need to call to get their insurance, but if their cousin was the thief, the crime or illegality succeeded absent any record at all. As this report states, if a business office doesn't include any information on suspect then none is to report, but if law enforcement never arrest anyone then nothing is reported at all. Sequentially, the possibility of a complex crime occured with no statistical significance in this report.
    -> The absence of a crime free or illegality free city being mentioned. In an example, ff less than one half of one percent of the population of New York City is being utilized statistically, either NYC isn't a crime or illegal active cesspool or law enforcement isn't gathering enough data from the majority of crimes or illegal actions in NYC. The fact that exampld populace generated: 40% of victims, which includes complainants, is of unknown phenotype; 44% of victims, including complainants, had no information on phenotype; 56% of suspects had unknown phenotypical information;79% of suspects led to no arrest; under 10% of arrested didn't have phenotypical information is damning on this report. It matters cause, amadou diallo was fired at 41 times from law enforcers but the scenario started with an alleged serial rapists hunt, but where did this come from? A serial rapists claim based on what or who? This report suggests that anyone can call law enforcement and make a complaint and that complaint can lead to an never ending investigation , gathering up many people absent any proof. Sean Bell's murder started with a claim of prostitution in a strip club. Who gave them this information? any person can complain to law enforcement that they see a child coming out of a strip club. Thus, you have a large populace whose level of criminal incidents is very tiny to its populace. A law enforcement system with no assurity in the claims of victims, that utilizes complaints from those who are not being victimized, that gathers suspects mostly with no connection or evidence to any criminal or illegal activity , all wrapped up in a sea of human biases. 
    -> an equal measurement system to arrested compared to suspected. Suspected can come from a complainant who simply dislikes another person absent any criminal or illegal activity. While arrested comes from certifications or identification forms. It matters cause it means the steps before arrested are all on whims or unverified claims or biases, negative or positive.

    ->how many complainants are part of the statistic victim? It matters cause the culture of complaining about one's neighbors is key. The Black community in the usa has a larger culture of complaint to its own than any other. 
    ->how many suspects came from unbiased replies from victims questioning? It matters cause the negative bias in any human will lead to a victim, which includes complainants in this report, leading to a people they have negative bias toward, who can be their own.
    ->how much of the statistics is within the 2020 calendar year? It matters cause law enforcement can put cases on hold so the ones they choose to continue to be active on from prior time , which is from their own biases, will lead to statistic manipulation. It matters cause arrests carry over from incidents in prior years while suspects or victims, including complainants do not, thus a clear manipulation of statistics , cause the bias of law enforcement plays a hand on cases that are chosen. 
    ->how many white hispanics explicitly or black hispanics explicity. It matters cause in a report that admittedly focuses on phenotype, the black or white groups are partially delineated in one report. Why not delineate blacks or whites further? why only from those who speak spanish? That is a biased choice that is totally dysfunctional.


    First I will overview the proof through utilized/not utilized/uncertain as to if the pdf given is a valid descriptor of crime. Second I will relate to the black community.
    The uncertainties are massive in a report claiming to be valid. So many convenient mixes of information and acceptable biased information. That is at the least confusing in a statistical report.
    But, the not utilized are massive. This report means black people arrested for stealing from a commercial victim are placed aside suspected black people of crimes or illegalities based on uncertain information of biases. The 79% of suspects lead to no arrest is damning report on victims or law enforcement , not the suspects themselves or the arrested.
    Penultimately, the absence of federal law enforcement numbers, when drug busts/illegal financial manipulations at the federal level can involve hundreds of people , is criminal to statistical gathering in a city with the population of NYC. 
    Lastly,  the fact that the quantity of crime or illegality refers to less than one percent of the populace in NYC, is a great positive for the city itself and a great crime for the makers of this report or those who utilize it.

    To the black community, the questions have to be, how many black people are complicit in making false suspect reports? I am certain non blacks do it at a high number, but how many black people themselves? I know from personal experience that black people have called law enforcement on black people for having a party loud, standing on a corner, personal grudges. Now, as this report states, most of these suspects lead to no arrest, but they are stated as suspects are they not, based on this report. The population of arrested to those who claim injury heavily favors those who claim.  Thus, are black people quietly, providing the basis for these numbers. It is well known, most crime is communal. It is common knowledge in NYC that the asian mobs operate in drugs or prostitution or trafficking or extortion in asian communities at a high level. I argue the statistics and common knowledge show black people are willing to call upon other black people to law enforcement with a greater regularity than other communities in NYC or elsewhere. Now, it can be argued that the reason for that is the absence of a big mob structure, that exists in the white european or white jewish or white asian communities. Or the latin american community mobs which are dominated by white latinos. So...  
    Use the statistical form if you like but I say it is invalid.


    2) Black on Black Crime
    Black on Black crime is a term. It is a fair term, a person in the phenotypical race labeled black commit a crime against another person in said phenotypical race. 
    But the question to why it is used more is interesting. The easy view is the negative bias of whites, which is a real thing. But the complex view is the negative bias of all. 
    Non blacks are usually raised with more negative biases toward blacks. But, black people in the USA from 1850s <circa end of the war between the states> to modernity, have a philosophical source to their actions. From Frederick Douglass side the first black elected class who wanted the black community in the USA to fully accept the american myth to Booker T washington who wanted the black community to be christan craftspeople to WEB DuBois the younger who wanted a black elite to exists aside the white elite, to the Club Women who wanted the black community to be exemplary europhiles, to the NAACP who preached a nonviolent mantra against any violent oppression , to the black elected official class of the 1970s to modernity who preach a familial citizenship to all, the black community in the usa has a large percentage of its leadership financed by whites or empowered by whites whose message is in two parts: regardless of anything personal or communal embrace the USA, integrate peacefully to whites. Now Nat Turner or MArcus Garvey or sets of Black soldiers in World War I or Malcolm X or Fannie Lou Hamer or SHirley CHisholm didn't say these things strictly but most black leaders in the USA or from the USA did. 
    why does that matter? They set the table for a problem. Non Blacks negative bias toward Blacks creates thier role in the media placement of Black on Black crime as the primary legal threat. But, most Black leaders in the USA desire for the larger black community to become an idealized Statian community creates our role in the media placement of Black on Black crime as the primary legal threat. To restate, non blacks disliking blacks leads to their role in providing the media narrative, but most black leaders desiring the black community to fit a goal leads to our providing the media narrative. 
    A proof is Historic Black Colleges or Universities. Most Black leaders, black one percent, are what: elected representatives/soldiers/athletes/entertainers, their entire life is embracing the USA or embracing whites in the USA, usually both, thus they guide the larger black mass to do likewise. 
    Most Black Churches of high membership are financed by the Black leadership side whites. Thus, the narrative from churches in every topic is similar. Blacks must reach for the goal of being a community fitting a philosophical view; said view is nonviolent and totally committed to the usa. 
    Every single black person who commits an act against the law is not totally committed to the usa. Every single black person who acts violently, no matter the reason, is potentially a threat to whites who criminalize in the white community the existence of black violence. 
    The question isn't Black on Black crime but what do black people want from each other? Some black people want other black people to have a certain lifestyle, no matter what. Some black people want other black people to have a blanket comradery of peace. And other groups or individuals of black people want other things from black people. But, can one thing be agreed upon? historically that has never happened and thus the possibility of crime is always present.


    Explained...Historic Black Colleges or Universities utilization by Black financial elite.

      I quote her


      Although crime can happen to anyone, when people engage 

      in common sense behaviors such as locking their doors, walking 

      in well-lit areas, not being flashy, etc. it helps to keep them safe.


      To her points, 

      1) lock doors... man, this is a big one. I have a friend who is an aspiring architect, black female, and I know of a few other black architects, male. The first thing that comes to my mind is about a black man who lived in a shelter. The shelter had/has <don't know which> a gang that came into his room, busted through the door, and beat him sensely. Kicked his jaw off literally. Then I think about the projects.  NYC historically is used to 3 to six stories. But to modernity, NYC has cities in elevation. and  I Think that is a problem. I do think of Judge Dredd, the 2022 storyline, the megacities. If Richard Murray Towers <RMT> exists and it has 100 floors with thirty apartments on each floor. Richard Murray Towers has , no vancacy, bare minimum, 3000 people in it. Towns in the USA have a fire department, roads,a  school, bridges with just 100 people., So one building has in itself, based on some small towns in the USA with full amenities, circa 30 towns. But each town in RMT has nothing. No roads, bridges, schools, fire department, hospital, bank,no sheriff... each town in RMT is functionally nothing. So to urban planning, side your point locked doors. I Think you hit a huge nail on the head. The way cities design all big buildings has to change. Now will this expensive? yes. Will many industries hate the idea? yes. But maybe if nyc or similar cities vertical environment was thought of differently, not how it is traditionally. It will lead to greater security. At the end of the day, most altercations are always local and usually more gripes than anything. 

      2) well lit areas. I admit, I have been safe in the darkness of NYC. But, I think well lit areas are better for general safety of walking. NYC streets are a mess, and if someone injures themselves on a poorly lit street, again expecting the financially poor passerby to not try something is ... welll... 

      3)I mentioned blinging already. The fiscally wealthy in NYC never condoned being around the poor blinging. so anyone who does that is just silly. teasing the poor with the wealth you wear, shame on you.

      4)Common sense does matter, I think a connection between the infrastructure weakness in environments. We talk of tulsa and yet, the black people of tulsa for all of their financial acument didn't seem to realize they needed a wall between them and the white community, same as all other black towns in the south<usa states from maryland to texas>. In parallel, black communities in the northern cities<above maryland from maine to illinois> are in temporary scenarios <shelters or projects> raising generations of families in vertical cities stacked on each other absent anything remotely close to infrastructure. so...
