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.

Antifa Gunman Shot Dead by Cops Said His Killing of Trump Supporter Felt Like Start of “Civil War”

Absurdly claims he acted in self-defense.

Michael Forest Reinoehl, the Antifa shooter who was killed by police last night after he pulled a weapon on officers, said in an interview before his death that his murder of a Trump supporter in Portland felt like the start of a “civil war.”

48-year-old Reinoehl was seen exiting an apartment and entering a vehicle in Olympia. As officers tried to arrest him, Reinoehl pulled a gun and was shot multiple times.

In an interview with VICE that was broadcast hours before his death, Reinoehl admitting to killing Patriot Prayer conservative and Trump supporter Aaron “Jay” Danielson, but ludicrously claimed he had acted in self-defense.

“I had no choice. I mean, I, I had a choice. I could have sat there and watched them kill a friend of mine of color. But I wasn’t going to do that,” claimed Reinoehl, suggesting Danielson was about to stab his friend.

In reality, as footage from the murder shows, Reinoehl and another man who heard to proclaim that they had found a “Trumper” before shooting Danielson, whose friend confirmed the pair had been deliberately hunted down.

Elsewhere in the interview, Reinoehl suggests that he shot Danielson not in self-defense, but in an attempt to start a “civil war.”

“Honestly, I hate to say it, but I see a civil war right around the corner,” he said. “That that shot felt like the beginning of a war.”

Observers questioned why VICE was giving a platform to a murderer, comparing the situation to if Fox News had afforded Charlottesville killer James Field a sympathetic forum to defend himself.

Survey: Two in Five New Yorkers Want to Leave the City

Because it’s turning into a sh*thole.

A new survey has found that two in five New Yorkers want to leave the city, citing concerns over the faltering COVID economy and violent crime.

The survey, carried out by the Manhattan Institute, found that 22 per cent think the anemic economy is the biggest issue affecting the city while 21 per cent are concerned about crime and public safety.

Figures show that shootings have doubled and murders are up 50 per cent on the same period last year. This all unfolded after Mayor Bill De Blasio celebrated emptying out New York prisons to protect inmates from coronavirus.

“The survey found that two in five New Yorkers say that they would leave the city if they had the ability to live anywhere they wanted,” reports Fox 5.

There was also a 44% increase in home sales in the suburbs compared to the same time period last year as people flee for bigger homes in safer areas.

The sentiment is reflected in demand experienced by removal companies, which is off the charts.

“Long lines were seen outside of a number of U-Haul stations in the neighborhood across Saturday and Sunday, with moving vehicles lining residential streets and discarded furniture stacked on sidewalks left by locals seeking pastures new,” reported the Daily Mail.

As we document in the video below, with the economy on its knees, trash-strewn streets, violent crime soaring and people now working remotely from home, there’s literally no reason to live in a big city anymore and people are fleeing in droves.

Videos Show Leftists Throwing Objects From Balcony at Trump Supporter Convoy on Portland Highway

Could have caused a serious accident.

Video clips out of Portland show anti-Trump leftists throwing objects at Trump supporters’ cars as they drive at speed down the highway, something that could have caused a serious accident.

One of the clips shows a man with a bucket full of objects throwing them at vehicles to the soundtrack of “Fuck Donald Trump.”

Another clip shows a group of people throwing objects, which could be water balloons or eggs, at the cars. A woman is heard laughing in the background.

The vehicles are traveling at high speed and any object thrown, even if it’s just a water balloon, risks causing an accident.

The incident happened on the same weekend that somebody shot at a car caravan of President Trump supporters parading down Ventura Boulevard in Los Angeles.

A Trump supporter was also executed in cold blood by an Antifa militant on Saturday night in Portland.

As we previously highlighted, a gang of three men also fired shots from their vehicle at a group of Trump supporters during a political rally in Charlotte.
