Tole Ya So

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!!!!


  1. Everything’s cool as long as they’re not shooting people on Central Park West.

      1. If Mark David Chapman had aimed two feet to the right, he’d be a hero today.

        When people ask me why I’m an atheist, I say “Five bullets into John, none into Yoko.”

  2. As near as I can tell the main function of the special unit was to violate the 2A and 4A. I attribute the spike in shootings to other reasons, like the bulk of the police realizing that the city administration didn’t have their back and the feral element taking advantage of the general disorder.
