No murders in NYC last week. Murders down 26% this year off last year's record low.

The NY Times today:
After a seven-day stretch in which no homicides were recorded in New York City, five occurred in 10 hours on Friday and Saturday.Three killings occurred in the Bronx, and two in Brooklyn. As of Saturday evening, no arrests had been made.
The Bloomberg administration claims New York City is on track to have the lowest number of murders in over fifty years.
But given how they play funny with the emergency response time stats, the crime stats, the graduation rates and the test scores, there are some skeptics out there:
"@howiewolf MT: No NYC murder last week. Murders down 26% this year.” @azi Serious Question: murder being defined/determined same way?

Guarantee you, they're playing funny with the murder stats too.
"Accidents" and "suicides" abound in this city...
