    Maybe even the violent New Yorkers were touched by the selfless act of that Police Officer who gave the homeless man some new socks and boots.
    Stranger things have happened.

    If this surprised anybody, then we have low standards. Peace should reign on the earth, ok , that's a dream but still, I don't meet violent ppl everyday even though I am working for nypd.

    Regardless of standards, it should still be celebrated. Any lack of violence is a very good thing. Maybe people are starting to see that violence is not the way to go? That's a dream as well but I don't think it's impossible, merely improbable.

    But do we accomplish that dream through the Sean Penn "Peace through ignorance" school, the war hawks peace by fear of retribution, users peace by pot, atheists peace by eliminating other religions, or academia's peace by intelligence?

    Not at all. This is part of a nationwide trend in decreasing violent crime rates. It would be nice if there were no violent crimes , but a decrease is very good.

    The heavily armed (despite the civilian disarmament laws) violent criminals and lunatics were momentarily distracted. You can be sure they will return with a vengeance.

    Because it was Monday and people either went to work or slept in.

    Stupid article, like most of what we get from mass media.

    Also, stupid question.

    If public officials in NYC "were at a loss to explain it," why should less informed readers of internet news who don't even live there be able to explain it?

    It's a sad comment that you take this good news and politicize it to look bad. One day without crime is better than no days without crime.

    @kirbstomp1 No "violent" crimes. I'm sure there were still all sorts of debauchery and wrong doings going on. The point is that if we're celebrating one day with no murders, that measuring stick must be pretty low.

    @LGRepublican - You got to have one day of no crime to have one week of no crime. You have to start somewhere. I no way am I celebrating, but it's nice to know that no one was hurt that day by someone else. You would be the one to take good news and try to make it look bad.

    Racism...it's a good thing. Bloomberg is correct that the cops should be totally focused on harassing blacks and muslims....even going to so as to send cops into NJ and other locations outside the jurisdiction of NYC to spy on them. Why NYC is a model for America! Or all the violent crooks took the day off? Or its just a fluke?

    Yes. White people need not be stopped. They aren't violent like the blacks and the muslims. They just like to do mass shootings indiscriminately killing everyone that they can. But you are right black people and muslims are the problem.

    "Racism...it's a good thing" - I think you've just come up with the slogan for the 2014 GOP congressional campaign.

    @PNWest Yeah...if they could get Martha Stewart to support it would work. In fact, you might have stumbled upon how to save the Republicans...they just have to make hate and racism accepted in mainstream society.

    What was the weather like in NYC on Monday?

    Seriously, having lived there for 10 years, I would attribute it more to grass roots organizations getting the "violence solves nothing" message across, but if the local "experts" can't explain it, no one can. Let's just hope it happens again. And again.

    "stop-and-frisk everyone". They're called Terry Patdowns and yes they are Constitutional. Google and Read Terry v. Ohio and you'll understand where I'm coming from.

    Personally I think we can narrow it down a bit with limited resources. Stop and frisk any male under the age of 30 regardless of race. That's more than half the violent crime right there. Stop and frisk any drunk women in the presence of two or more men because she will instigate violence at some point that night. Frisk every man not with his own woman around her. If they are pants sagging (and white boys do it too) frisk them every block for 10 blocks on the grounds that they are illegally sidewalk sweeping. Stop and frisk every obese person in flip flops dragging their feet as they walk on the grounds of wearing down public concrete and they probably have shoplifted merchandise under their clothes if they can't pick up their feet. Stop and frisk every person with a bible on the grounds that they may belong to a religious cult and are fixing to picket someone for being dead as God's punishment for gays. Stop and frisk anyone with a Koran on the grounds they may be taking flying lessons. Stop and frisk anyone speaking a language other than English on the grounds they may be conspiring to blow up a building and just don't want us knowing about it. Stop and frisk all seniors on the grounds they probably have illegal street pharmaceuticals because they can buy them cheaper on the street than they can with Medicare part D.

    Last but certainly not least, stop and frisk all Politicians on the ground they have been lying and lining their pockets since 10 minutes after they were first elected.
