Just a few points from the report.

The 15.2 percent rise in robberies from 2012, from 584 to 673, is also the highest total for that time period in the past five years.

Sheppard said 173 people have been shot in the city so far this year, a 28.5 percent increase over the average (152) for the past three years.

Despite the jump in shootings, the number of aggravated assaults (nonfatal shootings are included in that number) so far this year decreased by 7.4 percent compared to 2012, from 860 to 796

overall violent crime homicide, rape, robbery and aggravated assault dropped .01 percent, from 1603 to 1602.

Sheppard said 20 of the homicides involved a gun; 15 involved an ongoing disputes; in 20 of the 30 deaths the killer knew the victim; and eight are considered to be related to domestic violence.

20 of the 30 homicides this year have been solved

So if I read this right ONLY 173 people have been shot or killed and Rochester has had a total of 796 known shootings.

"Sheppard said 173 people have been shot in the city so far this year, a 28.5 percent increase over the average (152) for the past three years."

That number is outrageous - and indicates that the RPD is doing a horrible job.

Rochester should hire a chief with real management skills. Someone with zero tolerance to thugs with guns.

Police can not see into the future and know when a thug is going to shoot someone. These stats reflect that the animals in the city are just reproducing more animals in turn crime goes up!

Well. it goes like this. Boy meets girl. Girl gets pregnant. Boy hustles on the streets to support girl and KEED. Boy brings home cash to Mom with whom girl is now living.. Mom doesn't speak up because the cash supports a welfare home. Boy gets arrested, shot, killed hustling drugs. KEED doesn't have a father either temporary or permanently. Kid grows up to where boy meets girl. And the recidivism starts all over again.
AND THE CITY THINKS IT CAN ARREST ITS WAY OUT OF THIS CYCLED MESS. And to prove it, Monroe County will spend millions of your tax dollars for courts, jails, police, and probation.

Where is the war.

Has their society really degenerated to this level? It sure looks that way. Guns are a business tool to make money, and a social tool for settling arguments. Ignorance is rampant.
You absolutely nailed it. It a generational problem, not being addressed by the adults (using the term loosely). Kids learn good or bad traits from their parents. With no guidance, or encouragement to follow a criminal lifestyle, the problem will never get fixed.

No sorry. My count in Afghanistan is a little more than 100 fatalities. I agree we are losing the War on Drugs in Rochester at huge tax payers' dollars costs with little results.

You are full of SHIZNICK. For 2013, 75 British troops have been wounded in action ALONE in Afghanistan,(Source the guardian - datablog). Just another liberal talking out his ass.
