F OR YEARSactivists, police and others hoping to reduce gun violence in cities have asked if creating a temporary firebreak—a way to pause tit-for-tat killings—could help in the long term.
The idea is to let hot heads cool, so preventing a cycle of deadly feuding. Courtesy of covid, a chance might now exist to test the firebreak idea. Stay-at-home orders are keeping many potential perpetrators and victims off the streets. That has led to a remarkable fall in violence, including murders, rapes, robberies and assault. In some New York neighbourhoods, he says, crime is down by two-thirds.
The reductions are widespread, if not entirely unexpected. He notes periods of heavy snowfall or big storms can also keep people indoors and cause dips in crime. Temporary closures of subway stations can do the same at a local level. Warm weather or school holidays that send more youngsters on to the streets tend to drive rates up. The last pandemic in America, the Spanish flu ofalso seemed to have an effect.
Leigh Bienen, who runs a project tracking homicides in Chicago sincenotes that people were shot dead there ina noticeable drop from the year before. Gun killings then rose fast as the pandemic petered out. The scale of the crime downturn now is unprecedented, says Mr Herrmann. Cities are seeing sharp falls even as police patrol less—as they too fall sick with covid And unlike a storm, the lockdown in most places has already lasted for weeks. Were that to extend to three months, says a crime analyst in Chicago, some young-guns might change habits.
An older man who was imprisoned for murder agrees that a long-enough hiatus could help. Could the pandemic-induced firebreak have a longer-lasting effect? Where shootings are mostly by gangs fighting over control of drug sales, say, a quick return to old levels of violence could be expected.
But police in Chicago, at least, liken some shootings to a game of tag played with firearms. Young, ill-educated teenagers, with too-easy access to guns, fall into feuding almost as a deadly sport.
Some grudges are then held for years and are even passed between generations. Those involved in such shootings could be the most susceptible to change. A group called READIrun by Eddie Bocanegra in Chicago, has for the past 20 months been giving frequent sessions of behavioural therapy and counselling to young men judged likeliest to perpetrate the next killings or be the next victims. He believes some cycles of violence are being broken. Still, the idea of a firebreak bringing benefits after de facto curfews are lifted does not convince everyone.
Lockdowns do generally seem to reduce crimes in public but they can also result in more violence indoors. It is likely that domestic abuse is becoming more common. In Houston cases of assault leapt in March, mostly because of attacks within the home. And another crime analyst, in Chicago, says being exposed to abuse at home is a strong predictor that someone will get involved in other violence later. Nor can anyone be sure how other pandemic-related changes under way will affect longer-term crime rates.
Trying to make use of the firebreak makes sense. But keeping crime lower will prove difficult indeed. Dig deeper: For our latest coverage of the covid pandemic, register for The Economist Todayour daily newsletteror visit our coronavirus tracker and story hub.
