According to the PPD crime map, over the last 30 days(10/16/09 to 11/15/09), there have been 6 homicides in Northeast Philadelphia. 2 in the 7th district, 2 in the second, and with last night’s news of a shooting in Holmseburg(reported as Mayfair), and previous homicide in Tacony, 2 in the 15th district.
I actually started this post preparing to take a shot at the rest of the Northeast who always looks down on Frankford. But now I’m just really curious. Has it been better policing with existing resources? Has it just been luck? Has Frankford actually gotten better? We are down by at least 50% of last years total if I recall correctly.
