Shootings Up 43% Last Month in NYC, But At Least There’s No More Stop and Frisk

Bill de Blasio

Thanks, de Blasio!


The number of shooting victims has skyrocketed across the city this year — up 43 percent in just the last month — while fewer guns are coming off the streets, NYPD statistics reveal.

Police Commissioner Bill Bratton has repeatedly shifted the focus from shootings to a steep decline in homicides, and claims he is not worried about the gun violence.

But sources told The Post it will only get worse in the hotter summer months, and that the alarming trend is the result of a more “reactive” police force handicapped by the inability to use tactics like stop-and-frisk.

“Cops aren’t putting their hands on anyone,” a source said.

In the last month alone, 129 people were shot, according to the latest CompStat figures, or 43.3 percent more than for the same period last year.

Who could have ever seen this coming, except, well, everyone:


“Under [NYPD Commissioner Ray] Kelly, we went after guns on the street,’’ a source said. “We stopped the guys in the precincts who we knew were criminals and took guns off them. [It was] proactive policing.

“We are a reactive police force now. We react to violence before going out and trying to stop it before it happens.”

Another NYPD source said it’s clear that the criminals know city cops’ hands are tied thanks to legal challenges to stop-and-frisk and Bratton’s reluctance to push the crime-fighting tactic.

“Gang-bangers were afraid to bring out guns because they may be randomly stopped and arrested. That’s all in the past now,” the source said.

The blood is on Bill de Blasio’s hands. But let’s look at the upside: At least you’re not Chicago.

There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honour, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superior to all private passions.

Obviously, New York City has too few gun control laws. /drippingsarcasm
Liberalism isn't really about making the world a better place. It's about reassuring the elites that they are good people for wanting to rule over it.

But they do have tough laws on gun control.  They have insured only criminals should have weapons. :thud:
