This was all so predictable. Cutting police budgets does the greatest harm to black & latino Americans in the inner cities. But it’s a “checkbox” issue for white liberals in 2020. So, NY Mayor De Blasio eliminates the Anti-Crime Unit (600 strong) that predominately dealt with gun crimes. Gun crimes soar. De Blasio decries the violence. But the mayor does not propose any new solutions to ending the gun violence. This, as shootings for the week went up 277%, 49 compared to 13 in 2019. The number of victims is up 253%, 60 compared to 17 in 2019. #BLACKLIVESMATTER
It was a dramatic moment — Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams holding up a pair of baby shoes Monday after a 1-year-old became the latest victim of gun violence, caught in the crossfire at a family barbecue just hours before.
“Babies are not supposed to be wearing these in a coffin,” Adams said.
Adams, a former cop, became the second member of the African-American community to call on the NYPD to stop the violence by re-instituting the Anti-Crime Unit — undercover cops whose job was to get guns off the street. The unit was disbanded during the anti-cop protest that shook the city.
“I think that a total elimination is something we need to reevaluate,” said Adams. “Right now, bad guys are saying if you don’t see a blue and white you can do whatever you want.”
Community activist Tony Herbert agrees. “The guns keep going off and now we have a 1-year-old and the blood is on the hands of the mayor and the state Legislature,” said Herbert.
