Not a single person was reported stabbed, shot or slashed in New York City on Monday. According to chief NYPD spokesman Paul Browne said it was a great week to start the week and he couldn't recall a time when the city logged zero such cases in the same day. The city is on a downward trend in violent crime that could put the city at its lowest murder numbers since 1960 by the end of the year. Murders citywide are down 23 percent year over year, with 366 recorded thus far in 2012 compared with 472 the year before. Total crime is up in the city by 3 percent this year, but officials attribute that mostly to an increase in grand larcenies connected to the rise in smartphone and tablet thefts.
