    Neighborhoods with more dogs are found to have lower rates of homicide, robbery and aggravated assaults, according to a new study. The study, conducted by researchers at The Ohio State University, suggests criminals see people walking their dogs as 'more eyes' patrolling the streets and deters them from breaking the law. Neighborhoods high in dog concentration had about two-thirds the robbery rates of those low in dog concentration and about half the homicide rates, the study found. However, crime dramatically dropped in places with more dogs and residents who have high levels of trust in each other. Nicolo Pinchak, lead author of the study and a doctoral student in sociology at The Ohio State University, said in a statement: 'When people are out walking their dogs, they have conversations, they pet each other's dogs. 'Sometimes they know the dog's name and not even the owners. 'They learn what's going on and can spot potential problems.' Neighborhoods with more dogs are found to have lower rates of homicide, robbery and aggravated assaults, according to a new study To uncover these findings,...

    The accused New York City shoplifters that Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez defended as struggling families forced into a life of crime due to lack of federal support are actually repeat offenders who have lengthy rap sheets. After a string of shoplifting thefts of retail stories in the Bronx, NYPD officers in the 44th Precinct arrested a dozen people on February 8, 9, 11 and 12. Police touted the arrest on Twitter with photos of the arresting officers and the $1,800 worth of household goods, including diapers, recovered. In response, Ocasio-Cortez, who represents the upper middle class Long Island City neighborhood in Queens and portions of the Bronx, cast doubt on the legitimacy of the arrests, suggesting that police had gone after impoverished people who were stealing to supply their own babies with diapers and formula. ‘It’s much easier to frame people who steal baby formula and medicine as monsters to be jailed than acknowledge our politics and economic priorities create conditions where people steal baby formula to survive,’ she had tweeted on Thursday.
