Murder in 2005

The homicide total for New York in 2005 is 540. It could change as other deaths last year are investigated, but aside from the 540 deaths that represents, that’s a good number. Last year it was 572.

Congratulations New York, for killing each other a little less. Thank you to everyone who made this possible, the NYPD and all the community groups and organizations and individuals who strove to make life better and people less murderous.

Goodbye, 2005. Rest in peace, 540.

UPDATE: I just heard a rumor that we’ve had four homicides already in 2006.
