My October 14, 2020 Taki’s Magazine column “Slaughter in the Cities” quoted a report by liberal social scientist Richard Rosenfeld of the Council on Criminal Justice as showing in 20 big cities:

The model estimated a structural break near the end of May 2020, after which the homicide rate increased by 37% through the end of June.

Now, Rosenfeld has updated his report through the end of August:

HOMICIDE
Figure 1 displays the average weekly homicide rate in the 20 cities for which homicide data were available (see Appendix). There appears to be a rough cyclical pattern and a stable linear trend in the homicide rate over time. The model estimated a structural break at the end of May 2020, after which the homicide rate increased sharply through the beginning of July. It then dropped during the next several weeks through the end of August. The average city homicide rate between June and August of 2020 increased by 52.6% over the same three-month period the year before. There were 366 more homicides in the 20 cities during the summer of 2020 than during the summer of 2019.

Note: The months June, July, and August are defined as “summer” in this report.

Key Takeaway: Homicide was 53% higher in summer 2020 than summer 2019.

In other words, up through Memorial Day, 2020 was somewhat worse than the recent normal for murders, but then all hell broke loose during the media-declared Racial Reckoning after George Floyd’s death on May 25.

From the New York Times news section write-up of the data, which is worth comparing to my earlier summarization:

Police Pin a Rise in Murders on an Unusual Suspect: Covid

Awash in new firearms, cities are drawing connections between the stresses of the coronavirus and a surge in homicides.

By Thomas Fuller and Tim Arango
Oct. 29, 2020

OAKLAND, Calif. — Family and friends of Aaron Pryor say they may never know exactly why the 16-year-old star football player, a lightning-fast running back, was killed in broad daylight on a Sunday in September in a driveway near his Oakland home.

… “It was Covid that really killed this kid,” he said.

Like many American cities, where economies have been ravaged by the pandemic, Oakland has seen a surge in gun violence, including six killings of juveniles since June and a 40 percent increase in homicides over all. To the south, in Los Angeles, the picture is equally bloody, with the city on pace to have more than 300 homicides for the first time since 2009.

Beyond California, major cities from Minneapolis to Milwaukee to New York, and even smaller communities like Lubbock, Texas, and Lexington, Ky., are all confronting the same grim pattern, with some places, like Kansas City, Mo., and Indianapolis, setting records for the number of killings in a single year. Philadelphia, which was gripped by unrest this week after the police shooting of a Black man, is among the cities with the highest increase in homicides — its 404 killings this year are a more than 40 percent increase compared with the same period last year.

Criminologists studying the rise in the murder rate point to the effects the pandemic has had on everything from mental health to policing in a time of social distancing, with fewer officers able to perform the up-close-and-personal community outreach work that in normal times has helped mitigate violence. Experts also attribute the rise to increased gang violence and a spike in gun ownership, including among many first-time gun owners.

But do NOT blame the media-declared Racial Reckoning. This record increase in blacks shooting couldn’t have anything to do with

The epidemic of murder in America looms over the final days of a polarizing election campaign that President Trump has sought to frame as a referendum on law and order. His refrain has been constant: that cities run by Democrats have let crime get out of control.

But the data show that the waves of killings have afflicted Democrat- and Republican-run cities alike.

“The increase has had nothing to do with the political affiliation of your mayor,” said Richard Rosenfeld, a professor of criminology and criminal justice at the University of Missouri-St. Louis.

Dr. Rosenfeld has studied crime trends during the pandemic for the Council on Criminal Justice, a nonpartisan research organization, and found that homicides increased an average of 53 percent across 20 major American cities during the summer.

As you often see, the NYT reporters manage to slip in the politically incorrect Occam’s Razor explanation toward the bottom, in this case in the 25th paragraph:

Aside from the destabilizing effects of the pandemic, the widespread public criticism of the police that followed the killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis may have had an impact on the rise in violent crime, Dr. Rosenfeld said.

He noted that after the protests in Ferguson, Mo., in 2014, following the police shooting of Michael Brown, homicides similarly increased in American cities. Some analysts have called this the “Ferguson effect,” and have offered two explanations that may help explain the current rise in homicides: that police have pulled back from patrolling some neighborhoods, and that residents, particularly in communities of color, have stopped turning to the police out of a lack of trust, leading to more disputes being settled violently.

His research found that other categories of crime, such as residential burglaries, larceny and drug offenses, have declined during the pandemic.

So it turns out that like I’ve been saying for months, The Establishment has unleashed a hyper-Ferguson Effect by telling blacks that they ought to be angry and that the law is for other races.

Also, Late October is the second iSteve fundraising drive of 2020.

Large or small, I find each donation to be a personal message of encouragement to keep doing what I’m doing. I more or less figured out the basic logic of the 21st Century, which hasn’t made me popular, but with your support I can keep on keeping on pointing out how the world works.

Here are eight ways for you to contribute:

First: You can use Paypal (non-tax deductible) by going to the page on my old blog here. Paypal accepts most credit cards. Contributions can be either one-time only, monthly, or annual. (Monthly is nice.)

Second: You can mail a non-tax deductible donation to:

Steve Sailer
P.O Box 4142
Valley Village, CA 91617

Third: You can make a tax deductible contribution via VDARE by clicking here.

Please don’t forget to click my name at the VDARE site so the money goes to me:

Screenshot 2017-12-23 15.25.23

VDARE has been kiboshed from use of Paypal for being, I dunno, EVIL. But you can give via credit cards, Bitcoin, Ethereum and Litecoin, check, money order, or stock.

Note: the VDARE site goes up and down on its own schedule, so if this link stops working, please let me know.

Fourth: if you have a Wells Fargo bank account, you can transfer money to me (with no fees) via Wells Fargo SurePay/Zelle. Just tell WF SurePay/Zelle to send the money to my ancient AOL email address steveslrAT aol.com — replace the AT with the usual @). (Non-tax deductible.) Please note, there is no 2.9% fee like with Paypal or Google Wallet, so this is good for large contributions.

Fifth: if you have a Chase bank account (or even other bank accounts), you can transfer money to me (with no fees) via Chase QuickPay/Zelle (FAQ). Just tell Chase QuickPay/Zelle to send the money to my ancient AOL email address (steveslrATaol.com — replace the AT with the usual @). If Chase asks for the name on my account, it’s StevenSailer with an n at the end of Steven. (Non-tax deductible.) There is no 2.9% fee like with Paypal or Google Wallet, so this is also good for large contributions.

Zelle might work with other banks too. Here’s a Zelle link for CitiBank. And Bank of America.

Zelle is really a good system: easy to use and the fees are nonexistent, unlike, say, Paypal.

Sixth: send money via the Paypal-like Google Wallet to my Gmail address (that’s isteveslrATgmail .com — replace the AT with a @). (Non-tax deductible.)

Seventh: [Warning: Does this still work?] You can use Bitcoin using Coinbase. Coinbase payments are not tax deductible. Below are links to two Coinbase pages of mine. This first is if you want to enter a U.S. dollar-denominated amount to pay me.

Pay With Bitcoin (denominated in U.S. Dollars)

This second is if you want to enter a Bitcoin-denominated amount. (Remember one Bitcoin is currently worth many U.S. dollars.)

Pay With Bitcoin (denominated in Bitcoins)

If Coinbase isn’t working, what other Bitcoin intermediaries would you recommend? My goal is to not get audited by the IRS. The SPLC has been out to get me via the IRS for about 15 years, so I am fastidious about paying my taxes. For several years, Coinbase instantly transformed any Bitcoin donations into cash so I didn’t have to worry about the cost basis of capital gains on Bitcoin, but instead just reported income.

Eighth: At one reader’s request, I recently added Square as an 8th fundraising medium, although I’m vague on how it works. If you want to use Square, send me an email telling me how much to send you an invoice for. Or, if you know an easier way for us to use Square, please let me know.

Thanks.

    https://twitter.com/Zulfikar_bzkrt/status/1321539533469585408

    Reminds me of this.

    In January 2004, the 26-year-old Ramil Safarov, along with another officer from Azerbaijan, went to Budapest (Hungary), to participate in the three-month English language courses, organized by NATO’s Partnership for Peace program for military personnel from different countries. Two Armenian officers, a 25-year-old Gurgen Margaryan and Hayk Makuchyan, also participated in this program.

    At around 5:00 am on February 19 Safarov took the axe and went to Margaryan’s room, which he was sharing with his Hungarian roommate, Balázs Kuti. The door of their room was not locked. Safarov attacked the sleeping Margaryan with the axe and delivered 16 blows to his body, which almost severed Margaryan’s head.

    After serving eight years of the life sentence, Safarov was extradited under the framework guidelines of the 1983 Strasbourg Convention on the Transfer of Sentenced Persons and transferred to Azerbaijan on August 31, 2012. Although the Hungarian government stated that it had received assurances from the Azerbaijan government that the remainder of the sentence would be enforced, President Ilham Aliyev issued a pardon immediately.

    Azerbaijani Defense Minister Safar Abiyev promoted Safarov to the rank of major and the Defense Ministry of Azerbaijan provided him with an apartment and over eight years of back pay.

    Azerbaijani high-ranking officials have praised Safarov’s extradition and pardon giving him a hero’s welcome. Presidential Administration of Azerbaijan Novruz Mammadov stated in the interview:

    Yes, he is in Azerbaijan. This is a great news for all of us. It is very touching to see this son of the homeland, which was thrown in jail after he defended his country’s honor and dignity of the people.

    Elnur Aslanov, Chief of the Political Analysis and Information Department of the Presidential Administration of Azerbaijan said that “…heroes as Mubariz Ibrahimov and Ramil Safarov with their bravery brought the second breath to the Azerbaijani society and people”.

    Ali Ahmedov, Deputy Chairman and Executive Secretary of the ruling New Azerbaijan Party stated that the “Order of President Ilham Aliyev to pardon Ramil Safarov is a triumph of determination, courage and justice”.

    Prominent public figures in Azerbaijan have made similar statements endorsing Safarov’s image as a hero. Famous Azerbaijani singer and a deputy of Azerbaijani Parliament Zeynab Khanlarova made the following statement:

    Safarov is not just a hero of Azerbaijan, he is an international hero! A monument should be set up to him. Not every man could do this. There are two heroes − Mr. Ilham Aliyev and Ramil Safarov. I would have done exactly as Ramil did. He did the right thing to take the life of an Armenian.

    Commenting on the hero’s welcome received by Safarov in Azerbaijan, Geydar Dzhemal, political scientist, the Chairman of the Islamic Committee of Russia, said, “I am absolutely convinced that the welcoming of Ramil Safarov as a hero in Azerbaijan is quite natural”.

    Weirdly the 3 people stabbed at the pro-Armenia rally blocking the highway in Fresno were attacked by a Hispanic man angry at them blocking the road and surrounding his car. I doubt he would have tried that with a BLM blockade.

    What I've heard from BBC Radio on this is 100% Azeri all the time. Fluffy interviews with Azeri "refugees," pseudo-serious interviews with Azeri diplomats, completely unbiased claims by Azeris that their military has done nothing wrong. Sometimes the BBC's policies actually make it easier to figure out what's really happening.

    I believe “all breast feeding parents “ would be all inclusive of whatever deranged male gender assigned at birth critter thinks he can nurse a baby.

    Men do have milk ducts and whatever the machinery to make milk. Just pump them up
    with massive doses of the hormones that start the birth and milk producing process and in theory the milk will flow. They wouldn’t need a baby, just a breast pump and a container so they could keep it in the fridge. Probably have a party with other freakos and drink the milk Or make milkshakes laced with fentanyl with it

    But the massive doses of hormones would have them vomiting, terrible headaches blood pressure rising to 200 dizziness fainting collapsing all day long. Hopefully they’d fall and hit their heads on a marble coffee table. Or die of preeclampsia ( extremely high blood pressure) caused by the birth hormones

    Friend and I are speculating what the latest sex gender cause will be. It’s a toss up between legalizing bestiality and sex with children 6 and over. Maybe the civil right of wanking in public ? Too tame.

  8. I find Steve’s association of black gangbangers increasingly shooting one another in a fit of pique and the notoriety of blacks resisting arrest and getting shot by police unconvincing, aka the Ferguson Effect. If I may permitted to imagine the thought process of a gangbanger with a gun on seeing a hated business rival, I see an angry dimwit acting out his passion. I do not see the dimwit acting on his opinions about white cops.

    OTOH, why the increase of black dimwits shooting other black dimwits? I hazard this guess: that the pandemic has altered the public consciousness and not for the better. Does not the public act differently during times of pestilence, as may be seen in Monty Python movies about those eras? If as is the case average Americans are drinking more, drugging more, committing suicide more, beating up family members more, etc., why would dimwitted black gangbangers not also be affected by Covid for the worse?

  9. What are the odds, if the Dems win Power, murdered negroes (and statistics re: murdered negroes) will be joining negro murderers as strictly local police blotter stories- only (re)appearing in the national media either if the death occurs at the hands of a white man or white police officer; and, in addition, a) if Dem polling numbers are going southwards, or b) in the run up to an election where the negro/progressive vote has to riled up.

    (Of course, yes, it goes without saying, crime statistics will be tardily released and in a from so obfuscated as to fox and flummox the Sailer mind.)

    Personally, with the Summer of The Antifa Wigga, I think the Dems missed a golden opportunity to fill up the jails with genuinely white people (rather than going to all that trouble to label as whites all those dark brown (illegal alien, Spanish-speaking/Muslim) crims which fill the remainder of the cells all the black crims aren’t occupying.)

    (Of course, it goes without saying, the Dems/MSM will lie and refer to the convicted Antifa rioters and the BLM mudshark intersection blockers (etc) as White Supremacists/Trump Supporters/Proud Boys etc etc.

    This could have been one in the eye to Steve Sailer and all his stats and ratios!

    But, on the other hand, if the prison population reflected the racial make-up, then I guess it would undermine the narratives about overpolicing in the ghettoes, stop-and-frisk, the poor dindu going to jail for the same offence whereas the lawyered-up whitey goes free, etc, etc, etc.

  10. If there is one thing negroes understand better than most White Folks, it’s the null value of “black lives”. Even their own children.

    Even most right wing White Folks go around saying all lives matter.

  11. Question for the real estate experts: Will urban areas take a hit? Will more people move to the suburbs or even to satellite towns? G5 and other technologies may make it more workable.

    Of course, very expensive gated communities will be fine in prime city locations. But it may not medical doctor money and above to stay in a lot of cities if you want White and Asian neighbors.

    I’m just thinking White folks will be edging toward areas to be among their own kind. White Flight on steroids in coming years.

    George leads the crowd into Target to exchange his shoes while others loot. Runs into Kramer who is hauling away a fancy washing machine.
    George grabs a muffin, rationalizing that it is perishable anyway.
    Other looters walk free but George is arrested.
    George argues about the receipt, but has no excuse for the muffin, resists arrest to try to make his date, ends up with knee on neck.

Lots of background and references and the tone is really nice, very reasonable and non-combative, just a professional psychologist in the intelligence and statistics field describing what people in his position know.

    The 35 are listed after the break. The book also has sections on history, statistics, etc.

    [MORE]

    Section 1: The Nature of Intelligence

    1 Intelligence is whatever collection of tasks a psychologist puts on a test.
    2 Intelligence is too complex to summarize with one number.
    3 IQ does not correspond to brain anatomy or functioning.
    4 Intelligence is a Western concept that does not apply to non-Western cultures.
    5 There are multiple intelligences in the human mind.
    6 Practical intelligence is a real ability, separate from general intelligence.

    Section 2: Measuring Intelligence

    7 Measuring intelligence is difficult.
    8 Content on intelligence tests is trivial and cannot measure intelligence.
    9 Intelligence tests are imperfect and cannot be used or trusted.
    10 Intelligence tests are biased against diverse populations.

    Section 3: Influences on Intelligence

    11 IQ only reflects a person’s socioeconomic status.
    12 High heritability for intelligence means that raising IQ is impossible.
    13 Genes are not important for determining intelligence.
    14 Environmentally driven changes in IQ mean that intelligence is malleable.
    15 Social interventions can drastically raise IQ.
    16 Brain training programs can raise IQ.
    17 Improvability of IQ means intelligence can be equalized.

    Section 4: Intelligence and Education

    18 Every child is gifted.
    19 Effective schools can make every child academically proficient.
    20 Non-cognitive variables have powerful effects on academic achievement.
    21 Admissions tests are a barrier to college for underrepresented students.

    Section 5: Life Consequences of Intelligence

    22 IQ scores only measure how good someone is at taking intelligence tests.
    23 Intelligence is not important in the workplace.
    24 Intelligence tests are designed to create or perpetuate a false meritocracy.
    25 Very high intelligence is not more beneficial than moderately high intelligence.
    26 Emotional intelligence is a real ability that is helpful in life.

    Section 6: Demographic Group Differences

    27 Males and females have the same distribution of IQ scores.
    28 Racial/Ethnic group IQ differences are completely environmental in origin.
    29 Unique influences operate on one group’s intelligence test scores.
    30 Stereotype threat explains score gaps among demographic groups.

    Section 7: Societal and Ethical Issues

    31 Controversial or unpopular ideas should be held to a higher standard of evidence.
    32 Past controversies taint modern research on intelligence.
    33 Intelligence research leads to negative social policies.
    34 Intelligence research undermines the fight against inequality.
    35 Everyone is about as smart as I am.

    Reminds me of this.

    In January 2004, the 26-year-old Ramil Safarov, along with another officer from Azerbaijan, went to Budapest (Hungary), to participate in the three-month English language courses, organized by NATO's Partnership for Peace program for military personnel from different countries. Two Armenian officers, a 25-year-old Gurgen Margaryan and Hayk Makuchyan, also participated in this program.

    At around 5:00 am on February 19 Safarov took the axe and went to Margaryan's room, which he was sharing with his Hungarian roommate, Balázs Kuti. The door of their room was not locked. Safarov attacked the sleeping Margaryan with the axe and delivered 16 blows to his body, which almost severed Margaryan’s head.

    After serving eight years of the life sentence, Safarov was extradited under the framework guidelines of the 1983 Strasbourg Convention on the Transfer of Sentenced Persons and transferred to Azerbaijan on August 31, 2012. Although the Hungarian government stated that it had received assurances from the Azerbaijan government that the remainder of the sentence would be enforced, President Ilham Aliyev issued a pardon immediately.

    Azerbaijani Defense Minister Safar Abiyev promoted Safarov to the rank of major and the Defense Ministry of Azerbaijan provided him with an apartment and over eight years of back pay.

    Azerbaijani high-ranking officials have praised Safarov's extradition and pardon giving him a hero's welcome. Presidential Administration of Azerbaijan Novruz Mammadov stated in the interview:

    Yes, he is in Azerbaijan. This is a great news for all of us. It is very touching to see this son of the homeland, which was thrown in jail after he defended his country's honor and dignity of the people.

    Elnur Aslanov, Chief of the Political Analysis and Information Department of the Presidential Administration of Azerbaijan said that "...heroes as Mubariz Ibrahimov and Ramil Safarov with their bravery brought the second breath to the Azerbaijani society and people”.

    Ali Ahmedov, Deputy Chairman and Executive Secretary of the ruling New Azerbaijan Party stated that the "Order of President Ilham Aliyev to pardon Ramil Safarov is a triumph of determination, courage and justice".

    Prominent public figures in Azerbaijan have made similar statements endorsing Safarov's image as a hero. Famous Azerbaijani singer and a deputy of Azerbaijani Parliament Zeynab Khanlarova made the following statement:

    Safarov is not just a hero of Azerbaijan, he is an international hero! A monument should be set up to him. Not every man could do this. There are two heroes − Mr. Ilham Aliyev and Ramil Safarov. I would have done exactly as Ramil did. He did the right thing to take the life of an Armenian.

    Commenting on the hero's welcome received by Safarov in Azerbaijan, Geydar Dzhemal, political scientist, the Chairman of the Islamic Committee of Russia, said, “I am absolutely convinced that the welcoming of Ramil Safarov as a hero in Azerbaijan is quite natural”.
     

    Weirdly the 3 people stabbed at the pro-Armenia rally blocking the highway in Fresno were attacked by a Hispanic man angry at them blocking the road and surrounding his car. I doubt he would have tried that with a BLM blockade.

    His research found that other categories of crime, such as residential burglaries, larceny and drug offenses, have declined during the pandemic.

    Nice selection of the data there. Drugs are all but legalized these days, and residential burglaries are harder when everybody is working from home. Larceny? Does anybody still report theft of personal property if it’s not as substantial as a car? We all know the cops won’t do anything about your stolen bike, or skateboard, or tools, or catalytic converter, etc.

    Sixty years of major efforts to bring blacks up to par, such as forced school integration via busing (and wrecking it in the process) and every imaginable program such as Midnight Basketball, expending billions upon billions of dollars, have produced no results. It actually seems that blacks have regressed. The lesson is that once the lights go out they start looting and shooting. They must always be monitored and policed. People don’t want to think about it this way because it goes against their desire to engage in idealistic thinking. All this wasted time, money and effort could have been better used elsewhere. The sooner the lid can be put on them the better off everyone will be, including blacks. If the tail continues to wag the dog this entire society will be destroyed. Goodbye America.

    There’s going to be a problem with riots becoming the new normal every time a black is killed by a cop. Blacks now see it as an occasion to loot. They want to keep it up constantly and will use any excuse to go on the rampage. The media egg them on by shouting ‘police oppression’ every time a cop kills a scumbag because it gives the media eyeballs and revenue. Both of these groups now have a vested personal interest in keeping the riots going.

    Unless cops start firing into the crowd, it’s going to become solid riots from now on in our big cities. Even if Trump is elected, he still doesn’t have authority to take over police forces in big cities and kick their local corrupt Democratic pols out. Even if cops start firing, the network of liberal lawyers will try litigate every injury and death.

    The greed of libtard lawyers will prevent the reestablishment of law and order because they make money by defending criminal blacks and suing the authorities. Until you change the law and refuse to let someone engaged in a crime to sue for being injured or allow their families to sue for a death, cities will always be coughing up massive payments to blackmailing criminal blacks and their equally criminal blackmailing lawyers.

    Basically, the only thing that’s going to shut down the riots are city voters who boot their libtard leaders, and it’s going to take several months of riots and a total breakdown of law and order, and an almost total shutdown of commerce, to change the mentality of big city liberals who have spent years frothing at the mouth about their hatred of anything conservative. Our cities have to become Lord of the Flies-lands and Clockwork Oranges before their brainwashed voters wise up. They still haven’t wised up yet even after months of riots all summer. They’re still going to vote for liberal pols in 2020.

    To reach a tipping point, about half of all city voters need to become personal victims of black crime, and/or lose their jobs because black looting has shut down the businesses where city voters work.

    But I emphasize, you cannot change the mentality of a liberal that easily. Their ego and self-respect is bound up with the whole philosophy of being a liberal. Liberals think being liberal makes them good people. They don’t want be ‘bad’ and turn conservative because they would have to admit they were wrong about everything, and that’s unbearable to a smug, egotistical liberal. They’d rather swallow a porcupine.

    Even after Covid is over, our cities will still be in massive trouble. Their budget problems will be even worse due to loss of revenue, and their crime rates through the roof, and their libtard pols still as gutless and cowardly as ever. Their pols are solely concerned with keeping the Dem graft machines going, and they don’t have the nerve to confront the big problems and fix them.

  35. police have pulled back from patrolling some neighborhoods, and that residents, particularly in communities of color, have stopped turning to the police out of a lack of trust, leading to more disputes being settled violently.

    I don’t think that either one of these is the Ferguson Effect.

    As for the first, in the case of ghetto shootings, the police show up afterward. They can patrol all they want and it’s impossible to be everywhere at all times, so patrolling cannot prevent shootings.

    As for the 2nd, that’s complete nonsense – “If I hadn’t lost trust in the po-lice, I would have called the cops to mediate this dispute I am having with my drug dealer, but since I have Ima just gonna pop a cap in his ass,” said no ghetto dweller ever.

    The Ferguson Effect is created by:

    1. Police and prosecutors not making vigorous efforts to lock up all the scum. More than usual are left on the street to do what thugs gotta do.

    2. Blacks feeling empowered by the tenor of the times. The message that gets thru to their ape brains is that blacks are now allowed to do whatever they want, including killing each other. White people’s law no longer applies to them. “Black Lives Matters” translates on the street to “Whatever a Black Person Does should no longer be a Crime” and they act accordingly.

    Jack is perfectly right. Criminologists are always avoiding the obvious.

    Tell me why we had a massive crime spike in the 60s? The economy was booming -- and those were real jobs back then. There was no fake pandemic. Yet crime exploded. Why? Because of political leniency.

    Blacks and other criminals may be stupid, but they know perfectly well when The Man is tacitly signaling "it's go time." Crime explodes when politicians and their media enablers let it explode. We know this. We also know how it's stopped: by tightening up.

    Despite all the "no more lead exposure" crackpots and whatever else people claim lowered crime, the fact is that Giuliani made historical improvements on crime rates because the police were told (i.e. allowed) to do their job and criminals were held accountable. And the Mayor supported the police, unlike DeBlasio who openly supports criminals. People forget how in the 70s and 80s there were NYC judges famous for letting criminals walk -- Turn 'Em Loose Bruce Wright for one. And now we have New York with its "no bail" rules. Huh, criminals are set free every day and crime goes up. But WHAT could possibly be the connection? Must be racism.

    Oh and broken windows policing? Probably the last 20 or so young blacks I've seen enter the subway have blatantly not paid the fare. They have no fear of getting stopped. They also don't wear masks -- no fear of breaking those rules either. You don't enforce the rules, people stop following them.

    It's really that simple. The 90s turn toward the Giuliani-style approach made crime drop all over. But now we've cycled back again. It's Mayor Lindsey time all across America. The late, great radio host Bob Grant nicknamed Lindsey "the tower of jelly." We now have towers of jelly running cities and states all across America, only now they are even more radical than in the 60s.

    Of all the problems troubling the nation, crime is one of the easiest to fix.

    police have pulled back from patrolling some neighborhoods, and that residents, particularly in communities of color, have stopped turning to the police out of a lack of trust, leading to more disputes being settled violently.
     
    I don't think that either one of these is the Ferguson Effect.

    As for the first, in the case of ghetto shootings, the police show up afterward. They can patrol all they want and it's impossible to be everywhere at all times, so patrolling cannot prevent shootings.

    As for the 2nd, that's complete nonsense - "If I hadn't lost trust in the po-lice, I would have called the cops to mediate this dispute I am having with my drug dealer, but since I have Ima just gonna pop a cap in his ass," said no ghetto dweller ever.

    The Ferguson Effect is created by:

    1. Police and prosecutors not making vigorous efforts to lock up all the scum. More than usual are left on the street to do what thugs gotta do.

    2. Blacks feeling empowered by the tenor of the times. The message that gets thru to their ape brains is that blacks are now allowed to do whatever they want, including killing each other. White people's law no longer applies to them. "Black Lives Matters" translates on the street to "Whatever a Black Person Does should no longer be a Crime" and they act accordingly.

    Jack is perfectly right. Criminologists are always avoiding the obvious.

    Tell me why we had a massive crime spike in the 60s? The economy was booming — and those were real jobs back then. There was no fake pandemic. Yet crime exploded. Why? Because of political leniency.

    Blacks and other criminals may be stupid, but they know perfectly well when The Man is tacitly signaling “it’s go time.” Crime explodes when politicians and their media enablers let it explode. We know this. We also know how it’s stopped: by tightening up.

    Despite all the “no more lead exposure” crackpots and whatever else people claim lowered crime, the fact is that Giuliani made historical improvements on crime rates because the police were told (i.e. allowed) to do their job and criminals were held accountable. And the Mayor supported the police, unlike DeBlasio who openly supports criminals. People forget how in the 70s and 80s there were NYC judges famous for letting criminals walk — Turn ‘Em Loose Bruce Wright for one. And now we have New York with its “no bail” rules. Huh, criminals are set free every day and crime goes up. But WHAT could possibly be the connection? Must be racism.

    Oh and broken windows policing? Probably the last 20 or so young blacks I’ve seen enter the subway have blatantly not paid the fare. They have no fear of getting stopped. They also don’t wear masks — no fear of breaking those rules either. You don’t enforce the rules, people stop following them.

    It’s really that simple. The 90s turn toward the Giuliani-style approach made crime drop all over. But now we’ve cycled back again. It’s Mayor Lindsey time all across America. The late, great radio host Bob Grant nicknamed Lindsey “the tower of jelly.” We now have towers of jelly running cities and states all across America, only now they are even more radical than in the 60s.

    Of all the problems troubling the nation, crime is one of the easiest to fix.

    Reminds me of this.

    In January 2004, the 26-year-old Ramil Safarov, along with another officer from Azerbaijan, went to Budapest (Hungary), to participate in the three-month English language courses, organized by NATO's Partnership for Peace program for military personnel from different countries. Two Armenian officers, a 25-year-old Gurgen Margaryan and Hayk Makuchyan, also participated in this program.

    At around 5:00 am on February 19 Safarov took the axe and went to Margaryan's room, which he was sharing with his Hungarian roommate, Balázs Kuti. The door of their room was not locked. Safarov attacked the sleeping Margaryan with the axe and delivered 16 blows to his body, which almost severed Margaryan’s head.

    After serving eight years of the life sentence, Safarov was extradited under the framework guidelines of the 1983 Strasbourg Convention on the Transfer of Sentenced Persons and transferred to Azerbaijan on August 31, 2012. Although the Hungarian government stated that it had received assurances from the Azerbaijan government that the remainder of the sentence would be enforced, President Ilham Aliyev issued a pardon immediately.

    Azerbaijani Defense Minister Safar Abiyev promoted Safarov to the rank of major and the Defense Ministry of Azerbaijan provided him with an apartment and over eight years of back pay.

    Azerbaijani high-ranking officials have praised Safarov's extradition and pardon giving him a hero's welcome. Presidential Administration of Azerbaijan Novruz Mammadov stated in the interview:

    Yes, he is in Azerbaijan. This is a great news for all of us. It is very touching to see this son of the homeland, which was thrown in jail after he defended his country's honor and dignity of the people.

    Elnur Aslanov, Chief of the Political Analysis and Information Department of the Presidential Administration of Azerbaijan said that "...heroes as Mubariz Ibrahimov and Ramil Safarov with their bravery brought the second breath to the Azerbaijani society and people”.

    Ali Ahmedov, Deputy Chairman and Executive Secretary of the ruling New Azerbaijan Party stated that the "Order of President Ilham Aliyev to pardon Ramil Safarov is a triumph of determination, courage and justice".

    Prominent public figures in Azerbaijan have made similar statements endorsing Safarov's image as a hero. Famous Azerbaijani singer and a deputy of Azerbaijani Parliament Zeynab Khanlarova made the following statement:

    An Indigenous woman named Arionna Buckanaga was shot and killed in early May, just two months before her nineteenth birthday. She was the mother of a little boy and had been busy finishing up her last year of high school while planning a birthday party for her child.

    Buckanaga was driving in South Minneapolis when someone shot into her car, apparently aiming at her male companion. She was struck by a bullet, which caused her to veer off the road and hit a tree. Days later, her family had her removed from life support when it became clear she wasn’t going to recover.

    There's going to be a problem with riots becoming the new normal every time a black is killed by a cop. Blacks now see it as an occasion to loot. They want to keep it up constantly and will use any excuse to go on the rampage. The media egg them on by shouting 'police oppression' every time a cop kills a scumbag because it gives the media eyeballs and revenue. Both of these groups now have a vested personal interest in keeping the riots going.

    Unless cops start firing into the crowd, it's going to become solid riots from now on in our big cities. Even if Trump is elected, he still doesn't have authority to take over police forces in big cities and kick their local corrupt Democratic pols out. Even if cops start firing, the network of liberal lawyers will try litigate every injury and death.

    The greed of libtard lawyers will prevent the reestablishment of law and order because they make money by defending criminal blacks and suing the authorities. Until you change the law and refuse to let someone engaged in a crime to sue for being injured or allow their families to sue for a death, cities will always be coughing up massive payments to blackmailing criminal blacks and their equally criminal blackmailing lawyers.

    Basically, the only thing that's going to shut down the riots are city voters who boot their libtard leaders, and it's going to take several months of riots and a total breakdown of law and order, and an almost total shutdown of commerce, to change the mentality of big city liberals who have spent years frothing at the mouth about their hatred of anything conservative. Our cities have to become Lord of the Flies-lands and Clockwork Oranges before their brainwashed voters wise up. They still haven't wised up yet even after months of riots all summer. They're still going to vote for liberal pols in 2020.

    To reach a tipping point, about half of all city voters need to become personal victims of black crime, and/or lose their jobs because black looting has shut down the businesses where city voters work.

    But I emphasize, you cannot change the mentality of a liberal that easily. Their ego and self-respect is bound up with the whole philosophy of being a liberal. Liberals think being liberal makes them good people. They don't want be 'bad' and turn conservative because they would have to admit they were wrong about everything, and that's unbearable to a smug, egotistical liberal. They'd rather swallow a porcupine.

    Even after Covid is over, our cities will still be in massive trouble. Their budget problems will be even worse due to loss of revenue, and their crime rates through the roof, and their libtard pols still as gutless and cowardly as ever. Their pols are solely concerned with keeping the Dem graft machines going, and they don't have the nerve to confront the big problems and fix them.

Turkey can be kind of hit or miss and this one, sadly, was a miss. On a good day turkey (esp. the white meat) is OK at best and this unfortunately was not a good day. I think they enjoyed the yams more.

    I haven’t driven by there in a couple years (my daughter’s team had a game at U of D and we took the “scenic route” on the way home), but things were pretty bleak looking.
    Is it any better now?

    Turkey is something we pretend to enjoy annually whereas duck, particularly Peking or crispy duck, is objectively delicious.
     
    You don’t know how to cook turkey, probably. There is great variation in meat flavor depending on whether you bake, fry, brine, or smoke it. Turkey at its best tastes every bit as good as duck without the cloying oiliness.

    What's a Republican city? Like mine, Roseville, CA? Population 139k, no blacks, no violent crime. Lots of property crime, however.

    His research found that other categories of crime, such as residential burglaries, larceny and drug offenses, have declined during the pandemic.
     
    Nice selection of the data there. Drugs are all but legalized these days, and residential burglaries are harder when everybody is working from home. Larceny? Does anybody still report theft of personal property if it's not as substantial as a car? We all know the cops won't do anything about your stolen bike, or skateboard, or tools, or catalytic converter, etc.

    Crime is NOT down, it's UP. Everybody is just defeated now.

    Of course, very expensive gated communities will be fine in prime city locations. But it may not medical doctor money and above to stay in a lot of cities if you want White and Asian neighbors.

    As a New Yorker, I doubt it. NYC is now owned by more wealthy people from around the world than ever before. One reason they bought here is that crime had plummeted to record low levels fa least in Manhattan). Almost every billionaire in the world has an apartment here.

    Once the Wuflu hoax subsides (after Trump is defeated) the white/Asian wealthies will flock back.

  64. “So it turns out that like I’ve been saying for months, The Establishment has unleashed a hyper-Ferguson Effect by telling blacks that they ought to be angry and that the law is for other races.”

    Which came first, the chicken or the egg? In other words, could the MSM have unleashed a backlash of law and order by telling whites that they should retaliate vs blacks for all the violent crimes done vs them? Or that they should insist on tougher law and order policing policies vs blacks in general? In this current climate, it doesn’t appear that it would have the same effect, and whites would cowardly crawl into the politically correct corner and say, “No, that’s okay. We don’t need tougher policing. We just need to understand what blacks are going through. After all, they’ve been persecuted for centuries.”

    And, are blacks genetically predisposed to collectively believe the MSM when they’re told that they should be angry and go out and riot vs the system? Individuals such as Thomas Sowell (granted, he’s 90 yrs old at this time) or Clarence Thomas aren’t likely to go out and riot vs the Man, vs the System. But is there a genetic component as to why blacks are more likely to resort to violence and collectively riot at the slightest provocation? Almost seems as though the MSM doesn’t have to push many buttons when persuading blacks to riot; they already know to follow the script. Whereas Whites, Asians, and Hispanics don’t generally riot no matter how angry they may get as a community. Closest non-black community that would tend to riot over something would be the LGBQT. Or perhaps Antifa.

    These days "pen pals" are strangers who you talk to on Twitter. Nobody writes letters anymore.

    A lot of people have a surprisingly large number of "pen pals" on social media, but the connections are shallow. You might know a few details about the other person and communicate sometimes through short Tweets, but it's a superficial relationship. You wouldn't form a deep connection or get to know the other person well. You definitely would not meet up in real life.

    Before social media, it was difficult to meet strangers from different parts of the world. This was especially true before global travel and migration became common (pre-1990s). So writing/receiving a letter was pretty fun back then.

    Nowadays, having a "pen pal" would seem unnecessary and weird to a lot of young people. Even a bit "creepy." Something for eccentric people.

    Could it be a manure problem? Something like 3 pounds a day for a 12 pound bird.

    Someone mentioned duck. Here’s a sort of recipe. First duck is mostly bone and fat. Low ratio of meat to fat and bone . Breast only part worth eating. Legs little meat. So one duck for 2 people 2 for 4 people and on

    They should be totally thawed 24 hours before cooking. Make 1/2 inch slits in the skin all over with either those big razor blades hard to find or a newly sharpened carbon steel kitchen knife. Won’t work that well with stainless steel knife.

    This both drains the huge amount of fat out while it cooks and the tiny slits close up after the fat drains up so it looks better than big raggedy slits. Make a couple big slits where the thigh meets the body so the fat and moisture runs out in cooking. Do that with turkey and chicken that you roast. Those slits don’t show

    Clear out fridge for your biggest pot. Fill with orange juice and let them marinate till several hours before cooking. Dry with dish towel. stick a dish towel inside it to soak up the liquid. Repeat with dry dish towel. Cut off the blobs of fat you can find and put in the roasting pan.

    Then arrange ducks and electric fans so the wind dries the duck skin till you’re ready to bake. 2 hours under the fans rotate often Follow standard recipe 400F pounds per baking time. Throw the orange juice down the drain

    The sugar in the orange juice makes the skin extra crispy fast so the meat doesn’t get dried out while the skin is getting done. The tiny skits close up so they more or less disappear It’s truly delicious. Title of recipe is Orgasm Duck

    Traditionally serve with roast potatoes. That’s peeled potatoes roasted in lots of the fat that drips out of the duck Use baking russet potatoes cut then in half horizontally so the flat part really soaked up the duck fat. There’s so much fat you’re supposed to save it and use it like bacon fat or schmaltz in frying other foods.

    Also do the same with small turnips I don’t know why they have to be small. If the potatoes look too pale when the ducks are done leave them in the oven and turn up the heat. Check often so they don’t burn.

    Save the carcasses. Smash them up and add to your freezer’s plastic bag of bones for stock.

    Btw, a black Florida Representative (Fredrica Wilson) says Biden wasn’t paying the usual organization money (e.g. kickback money to black officials) to turn out the black vote in Florida. That’s interesting. My gut-level suspicion says that Biden campaign staff know from their own internal polling that he’s going to lose, and they’ve decided that since those nice, well-paying jobs aren’t going to materialize for them under a Biden administration, that they’ll compensate by paying themselves nice fat salaries right now from Biden’s campaign money and drain his campaign dry, and that’s why blacks aren’t getting their walking around cash.

    The fallout and recriminations from Biden’s loss among the Democrats are going to be interesting. It may be a bigger mess than all the finger-pointing that took place after Hillary’s loss. However, I don’t think Biden will smash his celebration cake.

    Sixty years of major efforts to bring blacks up to par, such as forced school integration via busing (and wrecking it in the process) and every imaginable program such as Midnight Basketball, expending billions upon billions of dollars, have produced no results. It actually seems that blacks have regressed. The lesson is that once the lights go out they start looting and shooting. They must always be monitored and policed. People don't want to think about it this way because it goes against their desire to engage in idealistic thinking. All this wasted time, money and effort could have been better used elsewhere. The sooner the lid can be put on them the better off everyone will be, including blacks. If the tail continues to wag the dog this entire society will be destroyed. Goodbye America.

    Once we had a Japanese couple visit us. My wife had been pen pals (in Engrish) with the woman since she was a little girl (do pen pals still exist?). Vely lovely people.

    Anyway I roasted a turkey because I figured that they had never eaten a turkey before. I turned out to be right. But OTOH, I don't think they really liked it so they weren't missing anything. Turkey can be kind of hit or miss and this one, sadly, was a miss. On a good day turkey (esp. the white meat) is OK at best and this unfortunately was not a good day. I think they enjoyed the yams more.

    In the old days the king of table birds was the goose, but somehow geese have lost favor. I think it is because they can't be raised as cheaply as chickens or turkeys.

    Could it be a manure problem? Something like 3 pounds a day for a 12 pound bird.

    Someone mentioned duck. Here’s a sort of recipe. First duck is mostly bone and fat. Low ratio of meat to fat and bone . Breast only part worth eating. Legs little meat. So one duck for 2 people 2 for 4 people and on

    They should be totally thawed 24 hours before cooking. Make 1/2 inch slits in the skin all over with either those big razor blades hard to find or a newly sharpened carbon steel kitchen knife. Won’t work that well with stainless steel knife.

    This both drains the huge amount of fat out while it cooks and the tiny slits close up after the fat drains up so it looks better than big raggedy slits. Make a couple big slits where the thigh meets the body so the fat and moisture runs out in cooking. Do that with turkey and chicken that you roast. Those slits don’t show

    Clear out fridge for your biggest pot. Fill with orange juice and let them marinate till several hours before cooking. Dry with dish towel. stick a dish towel inside it to soak up the liquid. Repeat with dry dish towel. Cut off the blobs of fat you can find and put in the roasting pan.

    Then arrange ducks and electric fans so the wind dries the duck skin till you’re ready to bake. 2 hours under the fans rotate often Follow standard recipe 400F pounds per baking time. Throw the orange juice down the drain

    The sugar in the orange juice makes the skin extra crispy fast so the meat doesn’t get dried out while the skin is getting done. The tiny skits close up so they more or less disappear It’s truly delicious. Title of recipe is Orgasm Duck

    Traditionally serve with roast potatoes. That’s peeled potatoes roasted in lots of the fat that drips out of the duck Use baking russet potatoes cut then in half horizontally so the flat part really soaked up the duck fat. There’s so much fat you’re supposed to save it and use it like bacon fat or schmaltz in frying other foods.

    Also do the same with small turnips I don’t know why they have to be small. If the potatoes look too pale when the ducks are done leave them in the oven and turn up the heat. Check often so they don’t burn.

    Save the carcasses. Smash them up and add to your freezer’s plastic bag of bones for stock.

    You don’t know how to cook turkey, probably. There is great variation in meat flavor depending on whether you bake, fry, brine, or smoke it. Turkey at its best tastes every bit as good as duck without the cloying oiliness.
