    Armed robbers terrorized Oakland restaurants and small businesses in three separate crime sprees over the past year. The first wave targeted Asian eateries and struck during the 2007 holiday season. The second arrived last spring and was more indiscriminate. The third struck in July and August. All three made newspaper headlines and led television newscasts, shining a spotlight on the city's out-of-control crime problem and the Oakland Police Department's apparent inability to cope with it. In fact, the department's public response to the takeover robberies was both odd and illuminating. The department's mantra for dealing with the city's crime spike...

    When Mayor Giuliani officially declares his bid for the presidency in the coming weeks, his campaign will rest largely on the historic drops in crime levels New York City experienced during his time as mayor. Those decreases came with the infusion of thousands of new police officers and, more famously, the invention of a management tool called Compstat, which uses data about crime to respond to trends and hold commanders accountable for the conditions of their precincts. Criminologists say the retreating tide of crack cocaine addiction and other social factors also helped... Mr. Giuliani's political boast couldn't come at a...

    Watching the ever mounting improvised explosive device (IED) death toll it occurs to me that there is a fairly simple and effective means of combatting this primitive means of warfare. Upon taking over as mayor of NYC, Rudy Giulliani appointed Bill Bratten as police commissioner. Their tenure together was a stormy one and the perception rightly or wrongly was that Giulliani did not like the commish getting the major credit for lowering the crime rate. People can argue whether they were cooking the books or not, but the number of homicides committed in NYC declined in every one of Rudy's...

    “The news for New York City is spectacular," New York’s Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg told a City Hall press conference on May 24. He and New York Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly [Email him] were claiming credit for new FBI crime stats showing major crimes—murder, rape, robbery, aggravated assault, burglary, car theft, larceny and arson—dropping 5.8% in the city in 2003. New York’s crime rate now ranks it 211th of the 230 U.S. cities with 100,000-plus population—behind Omaha, Nebraska and Wichita, Kansas. Unfortunately, there must have been at least one skeptic at the press conference. Hizzoner reportedly “bristled” at suggestions that...
