NYC under democrat control: City hits milestone as shootings top 1,000 for the year

No wonder there’s a mass exodus from that demorat-run city.

From NY Post: The city surpassed 1,000 shootings for the year on Sunday, according to NYPD data, which also shows an average of nearly 10 people fell victim to gun violence each day over the last four weeks.

With four more months left in 2020, New York City logged 1,004 shootings as of Aug. 30, according to NYPD data released Monday. Last year, there had been just 537 by that time.

It is the first time the city has eclipsed the benchmark in gun violence since 2015, when 1,138 shootings were recorded for the entire year.

“Mr. Mayor, it is time to stop calling New York the safest big city,” a Brooklyn cop quipped to The Post.

The notable number comes a week before Labor Day, when cops expect another bloody holiday weekend in the Big Apple.

The city has seen 13 straight weeks of surging gun violence — with 375 more shootings and 499 more victims compared to the same time last year.

There were 277 shooting victims logged over the 28 days ending Aug. 30 — meaning on average, nearly 10 people per day were shot, NYPD data shows.

As violence increases in demorat-run Philadelphia, leaders want residents to turn in their guns

I’m sure the criminals will get right on that request…

Shocker, not: We’ve got another demorat-run city that is experiencing an increase in crime. CBS Philly reports that 259 people have been murdered so far this year, a 31% increase from this time last year.

The city council held an emergency meeting last week to come up with solutions. Here’s one of them:

Do these fools really believe that criminals are going to comply with this request?

The city’s Soros-backed district attorney, Larry Krasner, has been lenient with criminals and is a proponent of bail reform. At least he was until last week but now he’s apparently had a change of heart. From the CBS Philly story:

“Krasner was the first to address the City Council’s Special Committee on Gun Violence and even got emotional during the hearing when talking about 7-year-old Zamar Jones, who was killed during gun crossfire in West Philadelphia.

Krasner says his office is pushing for higher bail on those linked to gun crimes. “What my office is seeing is that bails are too low and often too low on cases that involve shootings, on cases involving felons in possession of firearms,” he said.”

Seven-year-old Zamar Jones was shot in the head while playing on his front porch. He later died.

Too little, too late for Zamar Jones, Mr. Krasner.

When are democrat voters going to realize the obvious?

Multnomah County receives grant to evaluate the “pre-trial system” from foundation with ties to Soros

This guy is ALWAYS involved in messing with our criminal justice system (and not in a good way).

KATU reports that Multnomah County (Portland, Oregon) is planning to change the way it looks at those arrested for a crime. They are to receive a $2M grant from the MacArthur Foundation to study the pre-trial system (aka “bail reform”), which decides who goes to jail and who is released.

MacArthur Foundations’ ties to Soros? See here, here and here.

From the KATU report:

“The county received this funding from the MacArthur Foundation, and staff tell KATU moving forward they only want people who pose a flight risk and a risk to public safety to be put behind bars.

“We have an assessment that shows how our system works: how it works well and the lots of spaces where there is room for improvement. We’ll be using these funds to determine what types of staff we can hire, probably some data capacity and some more project folks and some attorneys to help us figure out how the new system can be built,” said Abbey Stamp with the Local Public Safety Coordinating Council.

Jay Scroggin is the Adult Services Division Director for the county’s Department of Community Justice. He said they’ll spend the next two years creating a system based on science and risk.

What crime they did, and how much money they have in their pocket — which is our current system — does not predict whether they are likely to show up to court or likely to commit a crime while released,” Scroggin said.

Ultimately, Stamp said this could improve safety.”
