The Interrupters and ceasefire reframed Chicago offense to study the idea of violence and it has become guide and a metaphor for real world policy, outbreak is only a scare word for murder counts, it’s a frame. The epidemiology of violence is in its infancy, and like any virus that is understood, people are scared of it fearful they might pick up it or by wandering. But who’s are accounted for by network theory. You will find ways that network science is evolving, so it is possible to measure these things patterns could be seen by you. And the murder rate, over the 5 years of the study, was 55.2 per 100, 000, about 4 times the citywide speed – And one way of studying crime: if you live here, that is your danger.
And we think of neighbourhoods at Chicago and elsewhere, and its introduced. But in this high crime, high risk neighbourhood, you will find very different degrees of risk: Simply being detained in those times increases the aggregate murder rate by almost 50% but being in a network part with a murder victim increases the murder rate by a staggering 900%. What type of social network would thus increase your odds of being killed? Papachristos looked at individuals who’d been detained together, under this conservative assumption that this real world does not work like The Usual Suspects or Reservoir Dogs and that partners at offense usually know each other.
And in that community, it was an incredibly large network: 24, 110 people, about a 3rd of people. 41 percent of the murder victims in that community were located in that network, but only in a small portion of it: a mere 3, 178 people, only four percent of the whole community. And that is what a social community of violence looks like: Each node really is an individual, every dark node is a murder victim. And several of these victims can be traced between these social ties of offense to another. Among many social networks wechat is the most used by these Asian Murders. They usually use it for calling and booking a cab purpose. They even have a website called thebellabambino. Last year, Papachristos and two co-authors looked at a different result in a different place utilizing a different kind of information set. However, the principle was essentially the same! Two individuals observed to be associated as recorded in the FIO cards.
