Gun Violence Is Up 358% In NYC Amid Calls To Defund Police

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:

Figures also show that other Democrat run cities including Chicago and Minneapolis have experienced a massive uptick in gun violence.

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.

GOP Senator Says Antifa Attacked His Home, Threatened His Wife And Baby

“They screamed threats, vandalized, and tried to pound open our door”

Republican Senator Josh Hawley (R-MO) claimed late Monday night that a Antifa mob had gathered outside his home and begun attacking the property, threatening his petrified family who were inside.

Hawley said he wasn’t even at home at the time.

“Tonight while I was in Missouri, Antifa scumbags came to our place in DC and threatened my wife and newborn daughter, who can’t travel,” Hawley tweeted.

“They screamed threats, vandalized, and tried to pound open our door,” he further claimed.

“Let me be clear: My family & I will not be intimidated by left-wing violence,” Hawley urged.

Hawley, along with other GOP lawmakers, has declared an intention to challenge the certification of electoral votes for Joe Biden.

Antifa released a ‘statement’ claiming that they held a ‘vigil’ outside the Senator’s house. The statement was tweeted out by Washington Post reporter Mike DeBonis, prompting Hawley to counter that the ‘vigil’ consisted of “screaming threats through bullhorns, vandalizing property, pounding on the doors of homes and terrorizing innocent people and children.”

DeBonis posted a link to a video of the incident. Police appear to have been present at the ‘vigil’, but did not intervene, even though the mob was on Hawley’s property, right outside his front door:

Meanwhile, elsewhere in DC during the protests, police arrested Proud Boys’ leader Enrique Tarrio on misdemeanor destruction of property charges, for burning a BLM flag:

Homeless Advocacy Group Occupies Family Hotel, Refuses to Pay Bill

Motel already on its knees thanks to pandemic.

A small family-run hotel already on its knees as a result of the pandemic was suddenly occupied by a homeless advocacy group which booked 16 rooms and then refused to pay the bill.

“On Christmas Eve, a homeless advocacy group booked 16 rooms at the Travelodge Motel at 3518 Pacific Hwy. E. and paid for one night,” reports KIRO 7.

“But now, the group told the motel’s manager they have no plans to check out, or to pay the bill.”

Tacoma Housing Now subsequently sent volunteers to deliver food and supplies for the more than 40 people occupying the 16 rooms, some of whom have “severe infections” and one later tested positive for COVID-19.

Motel manager Shawn Randhawa told city authorities that the motel only has 10 employees and is already struggling as a result of COVID-19 lockdowns. The occupation could be the final straw that forces Randhawa to shut the business down.

“They may have to close up shop because with no revenues coming in, with their margins where they are, they may have to close operations,” said Fife City Manager Hyun Kim. “So, I’m trying to buy some time. It starts with conversations with both sides.”

However, the occupiers are demanding nothing less than permanent free shelter and refuse to leave, saying that the city should pay the motel bill.

Despite Fife Police Chief Peter Fisher asserting that the group is committing theft and criminal trespassing, the owner has not asked for them to be forcibly removed.

“In the current climate of media-endorsed leftist terrorism (a.k.a. mostly peaceful protests), he may be trying to avoid the place getting burned down,” writes Dave Blount.

Eh? Antifa Creates A Soccer League

The noxious organisation has seemingly decided that it can also fight ‘nazis’ by kicking a ball around

In between smashing up local businesses and attacking anyone who disagrees with their opinion that Communism is wonderful, Antifa has decided to start a soccer (football) league in Portland, according to reports.

The noxious organisation has seemingly decided that it can also fight ‘nazis’ by kicking a ball around.

Antifa created a Twitter account for the team, urging members, or ‘comrades’ as they put it, to try out:

The ad signalled that face masks will be required, while explaining that if players intend to turn up in ‘bloc’ they will need some way of being identified by their team mates.

Antifa called for its potential soccer stars to “Stay safe, Stay Dangerous, watch some soccer and Nutmeg a Nazi.”

The New York Post reported that 88 Antifa chicken necks signed up to become players, a highly ironic number given that it is used by white supremacists to denote ‘heil Hitler’.

When some worried that trouble might kick off at the matches, Antifa assured them that there will be a group of string-armed weenies keeping watch:

The fledgling league already suffered a set back, however, after it was announced that referees had been recruited to institute some authority over matches.

Being that Antifa toddlers are committed to rejecting any authority figure, some ‘comrades’ immediately took issue with the referees.

The Antifa soccer soy boys responded by accusing anyone of calling refs ‘bastards’ by declaring it ‘racist’:

Perhaps the real reason a ref is needed?

Antifa seems a good fit as perhaps the only organisation that could give the world’s football players a run for their money in being over-priveledged cry-baby softies.
