Gun violence is up 358% in New York City since June 2019 as police are being stripped of resources in Democrat run cities nationwide.
The New York Times reported Tuesday that “It has been nearly a quarter century since New York City experienced as much gun violence in the month of June as it has seen this year.”
The report states that the city “logged 125 shootings in the first three weeks of the month, more than double the number recorded over the same period last year,” according to police data.
Chief of Crime Control Strategies Michael LiPetri noted that one would have to scour the records “back to 1996 to have a worse start of June.”
The explosion in gun violence dovetails with the disbanding of NYPD anti-crime units, a decision that means around 600 plainclothes officers will be taken off targeted raids and reassigned.
In addition, Democrat imposed “reforms” have meant that around 40% of people arrested on gun possession charges were released without bail in the past year.
“Shooting and murders are both climbing steadily upward, but our city leaders have decided that proactive policing isn’t a priority anymore,” noted Patrick Lynch, president of the Police Benevolent Association:
These aren’t stats,they’re people: 24 shooting victims on Sat, 7 more victims on Sun, a total of 74 NYers shot this past week. @NYCMayor & @NYCCouncil have decided that POs shouldn’t proactively get guns off the street. They will have to answer to familieshttps://t.co/OAe4dlvPbL

Despite the crime spike, the Minneapolis City Council unanimously passed a resolution to replace the police department with a “community-led public safety system.”
So far that isn’t working out great for the city, which has seen a rampant increase in crime and the formation of a 300+ person tent city drug den in the affluent Powderhorn Park area.
The New York Times notes that residents in the area vowed not to call police to handle incidents of violence or potential violence, and instead said they would rely on “a community service organization”.
Meanwhile, Democrats this week blocked a procedural motion by Republicans to condemn the Defund the Police movement, as well as denounce “violence and the creation of autonomous zones.”

“Our resolution strongly opposes what I think is one of the craziest public policy proposals I have ever seen: this idea that we’re going to defund the police,” noted House Judiciary Committee Ranking Member Jim Jordan (R-OH).
“If we allow this defund the police concept to happen, to take root and to actually take place it will not only be tough for police officers but the communities they serve, what will happen there? It’s frightening.” Jordan added.
Murder Crisis Plagues DC As Mayor Begs For More Officers After ‘Defunding Police’
How it started.
How it’s going?
D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser, a former supporter of the ‘defund the police’ movement, urgently calls for increased policing as the nation’s capital faces an out-of-control murder crisis.
“What I can say is this: To me, numbers are just numbers. When we lose one person — whether it’s one or 200 — that’s too many,” Bowser said at a press conference earlier this week.
Of course, Bowser, like many Democrat mayors, blames firearms as the issue, deflecting any possibility her disastrous social justice reforms only embolden criminals – while punishing law-abiding taxpayers -across the imploding Washington, DC metro area.
Even the Washington Post can’t ignore the murder crisis:
For the first time in a quarter-century, the year’s homicide toll in Washington has surpassed 200 before October — a mark of surging violence that has angered and distressed local leaders, drawn scrutiny from Congress and made some residents question whether they can safely live in the nation’s capital.
The last time D.C. logged its 200th homicide before October was Aug. 12, 1997, in a year that ended with 303 people slain, according to police data. After that, annual totals generally trended downward, staying below 200 from 2004 to 2020, with a low of 88 in 2012. But the killing pace has picked up again, reaching 226 in 2021.
Heading into the 2024 presidential election cycle, Democrats will never admit their social justice reforms have failed. They conveniently blame guns.
Directly north of D.C. lies another crime-ridden metro area: Baltimore City. And this week, mass looting was seen in Philadelphia. And just north of Baltimore and Philadelphia, New York City’s progressive mayor recently warned of financial ruins due to a migrant crisis.

Lawlessness Spreads To Suburbia: Westport Man Carjacked In Own Garage
Violent crime appears to be spreading to suburbia. For the millions of Americans who fled crime-ridden metro areas where Democrat leaders failed to enforce law and order, the dramatic video of a carjacker assaulting a Westport, Connecticut, man in his garage for his Aston Martin serves as a wakeup call to better defend yourself and loves ones.
Westport Journal reports that the Westport Police Department released dramatic security footage from a Ring camera that shows a residential burglary and carjacking on Bayberry Lane on Sunday afternoon. Two suspects assaulted the man in his garage and stole his Aston Martin.
“They surround the vehicle and drag the man from the car as he calls for someone in the home to contact police. The intruders appear to repeatedly strike the man as he tries to fend them off,” the local media outlet said.
Westport police Lt. Eric Woods said the victim was targeted and followed back to his residence. “Therefore, Westport Police are encouraging residents to be aware of their surroundings and report any suspicious behavior to 911,” he said.
The consequence of failed Democrat policies in major cities has only emboldened criminals who are now expanding their theft wave to suburbia. It’s also a cautionary sign for homeowners who might want to explore firearms training to defend themselves, their families, and their property.
Meanwhile, the average police response time is more than ten minutes. And Democrat lawmakers want to strip the public of firearms (see New Mexico Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham‘s latest 2A overreach).

Serial Killer Billy Chemirmir ‘Killed by Cellmate’ in Texas Prison
The judge in the case declared a mistrial.
Convicted murderer Billy Chemirmir, an illegal alien from Kenya suspected of being one of the most prolific serial killers in American history, was reportedly killed in prison on Tuesday morning by his cellmate.
Convicted North Texas killer Billy Chemirmir, who was suspected in over 20 murders, was killed in a state prison Tuesday morning, officials confirmed to WFAA.
Chemirmir, 50, was serving life in prison without parole after he was twice found guilty of capital murder by Dallas County juries. He was accused of killing 20 other women in Dallas and Collin counties and still faced charges in those cases.
The Dallas County District Attorney’s office confirmed they were notified by Texas prison officials that Chemirmir was killed Tuesday morning. State prison officials confirmed that Chemirmir was found dead in his cell early Tuesday and his cellmate, who was serving on a murder charge out of Harris County, was “identified as the assailant.”
Dallas County District Attorney John Creuzot told WFAA that Chemirmir was killed after apparently making inappropriate comments sexual in nature towards his cellmate’s children. According to Creuzot, the cellmate allegedly beat Chemirmir, dragged him out of his cell and killed him while other inmates watched. No one intervened and Chemirmir may have been stabbed with a pen, Creuzot said.
They should identify the cellmate so the public can send him letters of appreciation.
Authorities suspected Chemirmir could be involved in around 1,000 suspicious deaths in Texas but tried to convict him in 2021 specifically for killing 24 elderly patients who were overwhelmingly female and white.
Despite having a slam dunk case, one single female juror who “didn’t even go back to [look at the evidence]” and “had her mind made up before she walked in” refused to convict, according to family member of a victim who was in the courtroom.
The judge in the case declared a mistrial and two new trials had to be held for separate victims in order to secure convictions.
