LOL: Is New York safer? The answer might surprise you

(CBS) - Is the city of New York safer now than in the past? An interesting question considering the history of the city and some periods that were well-known for violence.

However, the answer to this question as far as this video is concerned might not be as straight-forward as you might think.

What day is it today? If you say "Friday!" in a sing-song manner similar to a certain pop hit right now, you have just earned my scorn (okay, I forgive you, it is kinda catchy). But if you happened to say April Fool's Day... you're right!
