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.

“Crisis Of Crimes”: New Orleans Becomes Murder Capital Of America

Published

Progressives in top city leadership positions have helped transform New Orleans into the murder capital of America. 

WSJ reported the Louisiana city on the Mississippi River, near the Gulf of Mexico, recorded the highest homicide rate of any major city so far this year, with 41 homicides per 100,000 residents. 

Metropolitan Crime Commission Inc., a nonprofit that works on crime-reducing strategies in the city, said the homicide rate is up 141% compared with the same period in 2019. It pointed out carjackings are up 210%, shootings 100%, and armed robberies up 25%.

“The homicide rate is on pace to surpass last year’s rate, which was the worst since Hurricane Katrina in 2005,” WSJ noted. 

The city’s alarming spike in the homicide rate comes at the same time as “progressive prosecutor” Jason Williams became the district attorney of the metro area in early 2021. He promised a “more selective” approach to prosecutions that goes “beyond punishment.”

“Being more selective about prosecutions will allow us to focus on the crimes that matter most to all of us,” Williams said last year, adding, “We’ve got to go beyond punishment and invest in our community.”

Metropolitan Crime Commission recently said Williams’ criminal justice reforms have resulted in a “drastic decline in accountability for violent felony offenders.”

Residents told WSJ an “overwhelmed” police department is a significant factor in the rise in violent crime. 

Ronal Serpas, the city’s police superintendent from 2010-14, said the city has about 50% to 60% of officers needed for adequate patrols. 

“We’re in a crisis of crime and a crisis of confidence in this city,” Serpas said.

Democratic Mayor LaToya Cantrell warned last month Mardi Gras festivities early next year could be canceled because of the police shortage. Local news Times-Picayune said the police department budgets for 1,500 offices, but its force just fell below 1,000 — the lowest level in decades. 

“If we don’t have adequate police, it could mean that there will be no Mardi Gras. That’s a fact,” Cantrell said at a community meeting last month. 

Violent crime has surged in many liberal-controlled cities, as some believe this is due to failed criminal justice reform policies.

Democrat’s inability to address the crime wave is a failure in policy — and their lack of accountability will come in the form of no confidence by taxpayers. 

Remember in June when a George Soros-backed progressive district attorney in San Francisco was booted out of office? 

“Action must be taken NOW if there is ever a chance to save the city and bring the reputation of being a city where tourists can come to party and celebrate and not become victims,” nonprofit New Orleans Police & Justice Foundation, which raises funds to aid police in the city, warned.

Biden Silent On Memphis Massacre As First Victims Identified

Published

Joe Biden has still yet to weigh in on the mass shooting rampage in Memphis on Wednesday at the hands of 19-year-old thug Ezekiel Kelly. 

Biden’s also said nothing about the brutal kidnapping and murder of Eliza Fletcher in Memphis last week.

He rushed to weigh in on the mass shooting in Buffalo but I guess this is another one of those mass killings like Waukesha which he simply doesn’t have “time” for.

Kelly killed four people and injured at least three others in a rampage that he livestreamed on Facebook. 

According to reports, Kelly first shot 24-year-old Dewayne Tunstall while the two were at a friend’s house together.

“Officers said Tunstall was visiting a friend named Marcus Cash at a house in the 3100 block of Lyndale in Highland Heights,” WREG reported. “During a conversation, Kelly allegedly pulled Tunstall to the side, pulled out a handgun and fired several shots, striking Tunstall in the head.”

“Cash said Kelly ate and laughed with them prior to the shooting,” WREG continued. “He says he does not know why Kelly shot his friend, but he knew the two had an argument the day before.”

“Family for Rodolfo Berger confirmed on Facebook that he was the man shot about 6 p.m. at the AutoZone store in the 4000 block of Jackson Avenue in North Memphis,” ABC24 Memphis reports. He was rushed to the hospital in critical condition, where family said he underwent surgery and is ‘under extreme care.'”

“Allison Parker’s employer and West Memphis Police confirmed she was the woman who was shot and killed just before 7:30 p.m. along Poplar Avenue and Evergreen in Midtown Memphis,” ABC24 Memphis reports. “Memphis Police said the suspect carjacked Parker and shot her several times, taking her gray SUV.” 

“Corteria Wright, 17, was shot in the back by Kelly at around 8.55pm and is thought to be his final victim before he was apprehended by officers,” the Daily Mail reports.

Kelly’s other victims have yet to be identified.
