It’s not fair to blame police for the uptick, said James Allan Fox, a criminologist at Northeastern University in Boston. By the same token, police shouldn’t get undue credit when homicide numbers are lower.
“It’s no consolation to the victims’ families to say this is an aberration, but it is,” he said of the rash of homicides in Milwaukee recent days. “If there are big jumps three years in a row, you start to think something is going on, but this is not evidence that’s going to happen.”
