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.

Over 100 Police Agencies Ditch Agreement To Guard DNC

Cops are sick of being subjugated and defunded by Democrats

The Associated Press reported Tuesday that more than 100 police agencies across the country have ditched previous agreements to provide security for the Democratic National Convention, scheduled to take place in Milwaukee in August.

The report notes that the move by cops is a reaction to Democrat responses to the anti-police unrest that has raged throughout the Summer.

“They were concerned with directives placed on the police department, including not allowing tear gas or pepper spray,” said Milwaukee Police Chief Alfonso Morales.

“It is apparent there is a lack of commitment to provide the Milwaukee Police Department with the resources it needs to ensure the safety of peaceful protesters, attendees, citizens and police personnel,” noted Wisconsin, Franklin Police Chief Rick Oliva.

“I can not send personnel if they are not properly equipped or will not be allowed to engage in appropriate actions which would ensure their safety,” Oliva added.

“I understand that use of chemical irritants and pepper spray is serious and those are to be used only when legally justified. But when you take that out of the continuum that doesn’t leave the officers much other than getting harmed or using deadly force and that’s not good for any officer or the public,” Waukesha Police Chief Daniel Thompson also warned.

The reaction of police is hardly surprising given that Democrats have introduced reforms to hamper police, and even expressed support for calls to defund the police.

Democrat Ilhan Omar (MN) even described police as a “cancer,” adding “we are saying we don’t want your damn reforms.”

“The Minneapolis Police Department is rotten to the root, and so when we dismantle it, we get rid of that cancer, and we allow for something beautiful to rise, and that reimagining allows us to figure out what public safety looks like for us,” Omar said during a speech at a protest in June.

Italian Pedo Cult Tried to Recruit Members of the Elite

“Powerful” cabal has been operating since the 80’s.

A “powerful” pedophile cult busted by police in Italy set up a sophisticated legal front to hide its activities and tried to recruit wealthy members of the elite.

The sect was exposed after a 2 year police investigation dubbed ‘Operation Dionysus’ during which authorities uncovered a “very powerful” cabal that subjected young women and minors to sexual abuse and torture.

Like many sex trafficking networks, the organization appeared to be into occult sex magic rituals that promised inductees entry into a “magical, fantastic and secret world” and the lighting of an “inner fire,” while making them dependent on a 77-year-old leader known as ‘the Doctor’.

“The brainwashed members worked at the sect’s legal establishments, and were required to ‘donate’ large sums of money to the organization,” reports RT, citing police sources. “To make the whole scheme more profitable, the cult tried to recruit new members from wealthy families.”

The cult’s primary members referred to themselves as “beasts,” while naming their victims “prey” as they subjected them to “extreme” and “painful” forms of torture.

“The sect has had a large legal front, including several shops, a psychology center and even a publishing house, which allowed it to operate freely for years and to ensnare unsuspecting victims,” according to the report.

Authorities said that the investigation took so long because it was incredibly difficult to penetrate the network as its members showed devout loyalty despite having suffered “persistent psychological damage.”

The cult has been active since the 80’s and 26 people are currently under investigation for being complicit in its activities, although that number is expected to grow.

As we have previously highlighted, numerous investigations of pedophile sex trafficking rings in several European countries have mysteriously been stymied after names of powerful elitists were alleged to have been connected.

Mayor Bill de Blasio Celebrates Record Low Prison Population as Shootings Soar 277%

Some kind of connection here.

Mayor Bill de Blasio celebrated New York’s record low prison population even as shootings soared by a whopping 277 per cent compared to the same week last year.

During a news conference, de Blasio claimed that allowing more criminals out on the street actually makes New Yorkers “safer.”

“We now have fewer people in our jails than any time since [World War II], and we are safer and better for it,” he said.

The numbers suggest otherwise.

Compared to last year’s figures, shootings in New York this week are up by a jaw-dropping 277 per cent.

Even before the recent riots, major crime in New York City had soared by 22 per cent thanks to bail reforms that allowed suspects to avoid jail and re-offend.

Last month, it was reported that there had been 38 murders over the last 28 days up until June 14, twice as many as the previous year.

On Monday alone, 18 people were shot in 14 separate incidents. Six NYPD officers were also injured during clashes with protesters on the Brooklyn Bridge on Wednesday.

“Recent victims of the crime wave include a 1-year-old shot and killed in Brooklyn on Sunday. Since black lives only matter when they die in confrontations with white police officers, de Blasio must have seen fit to indulge in gallows humor,” writes Dave Blount.

While de Blasio presides over empty prisons and soaring crime having vowed to slash next year’s police budget by $1 billion dollars, he has also assigned no less than 27 cops working in shifts to protect a Black Lives Matter mural outside Trump Tower.
