Talking about New York City’s Commissar De Blasio’s decision to close down the NYPD’s anti-crime units, I ended with this:
With the disbanding of the anti-crime unit, it’s gonna get worse — much worse.
And lo, just a couple-three days later, we find this:
Reports indicate that shootings in New York City surged last week following the NYPD’s decision to disband its plainclothes anti-crime unit. The New York Post reports the unit was disbanded on Monday, June 15, 2020, and the week ended with “28 [shooting] incidents and 38 victims.”
During the same week in 2019 there were only 12 shootings.
A law enforcement source told the Post, “This is what the politicians wanted — no bail, nobody in Rikers, cops not arresting anyone.”
The source added, “All those things equal people walking around on the street with guns, shooting each other.”
Of course, the Left is going to say that this is because of Trump, or White supremacists or some such bullshit, but I don’t listen to them anymore.
Update: And right on cue… TA-DA!!!!
