Somehow, they’ll blame this on white people, the NRA, and white gun owners. A unit trying to keep black and brown from shooting each other in New York City was disbanded over “racial justice” concerns is now needed more than ever. Because black and brown people have been unleashed to shoot each other without consequence.
In Wake Of Continued Gun Violence, Prominent Members Of Black Community Call On NYPD To Bring Back Anti-Crime Unit, New York CBS, July 13, 2020
After another tragic weekend of gun violence, including the death of a 1-year-old, two members of the Black community called on the NYPD to bring back the recently disbanded Anti-Crime Unit to help get guns off the street.
CBS2 political reporter Marcia Kramer has more on the story.
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.
Mayor Bill de Blasio decried the shootings.
“This is not anything we can allow in our city. It is heartbreaking. It’s heartbreaking for so many reasons and begins with the fact that there are just so many guns out there and that is a New York tragedy,” de Blasio said.
But the mayor did 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.
John Jay College professor Joe Giaclone, a former cop, said the city has been eroding the ability of the cops to get guns off the street for years. The latest, the disbanding of the Anti-Crime Unit.
“The gun police are no longer out there,” said Giaclone. “The criminals are opportunists. You know that.”
All this comes as the latest NYPD statistics show a huge drop in gun arrests during the last week.
Who/who are the primary suspects in the gun violence in New York City?
It should be noted in 2019 New York City, blacks represent 22.8 percent of population, Hispanics 28.6 percent, and Asians 12.6 percent.
For homicide suspects, 97 percent were black, Hispanic, or Asian in New York City for 2019. These statistics come courtesy of the 2019 Crime and Enforcement Activity in New York City:
Murder and Non-Negligent Manslaughter victims are most frequently Black (56.6%) or Hispanic (31.2%). Asian/Pacific Islander victims account for (6.9%) of all Murder and Non-Negligent Manslaughter victims while Whites account for (4.9%) of all Murder and Non-Negligent Manslaughter victims.
The race/ethnicity of known Murder and Non-Negligent Manslaughter suspects mirrors the victim population with Black (62.4%) and Hispanic (30.8%) suspects accounting for the majority of suspects. Asian/Pacific Islander suspects account for (3.8%) of all Murder and Non-Negligent Manslaughter suspects while Whites accounted for (3.0%) of the known Murder and NonNegligent Manslaughter suspects.
The Murder and Non-Negligent Manslaughter arrest population is similarly distributed. Black arrestees (58.0%) and Hispanic arrestees (35.2%) account for the majority of Murder and Non-Negligent Manslaughter arrestees while White arrestees (3.3%) and Asian/Pacific Islander (3.0%) arrestees account for the remaining portions of the Murder and Non-Negligent Manslaughter arrest population.
Note there were more white victims of homicide than suspects, meaning interracial murder was primarily non-white on white.
Violent crime has a color/race in New York City, but this data is inadmissible in the court of public opinion, because it completely obliterates every conceivable egalitarian notion forced upon us by our hostile governing elite.
The Black Lives Matter revolution is nothing more than a Blood Libel against White America; with each victory this Bolshevik movement gains a defeat for civilization, as well as law and order.
The consequences of this victory are more dead black people, at the hands of other black people.
