posted by Hannity Staff - 11.03.20

From Fox News:

The New York Police Department reported 137 shootings from Oct. 1 to Oct. 31, compared to the 62 reported during the same period last year, newly released statistics show. The department also saw a 2.8% decrease in murders over the 30-day period, with 35 this October versus the 36 last October.

Nonetheless, year-to-date figures show an uptick in murders and shootings for the first 10 months of 2020.

There have been 387 murders so far this year, compared to the 282 reported in the first 10 months of 2019 — an increase of 37.2%. Meanwhile, the department reported 1,299 shootings to date this year — a 93.9% jump from the 670 recorded year-to-date in 2019, police said.

 

One of the murders reported during the month was that of a 29-year-old pregnant woman named Vanessa Pierre. Pierre’s body was discovered around 6 a.m. on Oct. 23 lying face down on the sidewalk off Horace Harding Expressway in Queens, an NYPD official said last week.

DE BLASIO SPIRALS: 2 NYPD Shot, 1 Stabbed, Mayor Says Protests Remind Him of John Lennon’s ‘Imagine’

Two members of the NYPD were shot in Brooklyn overnight Monday and another officer stabbed in the neck as protesters defied an 8pm curfew imposed by beleaguered Mayor Bill de Blasio.

“The melee unfolded when a suspect approached a cop on Church Avenue near Flatbush Avenue at about 11:45 p.m. and stabbed him in the neck, a police source said,” reports the New York Post.

Meanwhile, the mayor faced a growing backlash after saying the violent situation reminded him of John Lennon’s utopian anthem ‘Imagine.’

“I don’t mean to make light of this. But I’m reminded of the song ‘Imagine’ by John Lennon. We played it at my inauguration! What about a world where people got along differently? What about a world where we didn’t live with a lot of the restrictions that we live with now,” said De Blasio. “We’re not there yet. The protest movement themselves is how we make progress!”

DE BLASIO SPIRALS: Embattled Mayor Says Spike in CoVID Hospitalizations Has Nothing to do With Protests

posted by Hannity Staff - 6.05.20

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio told reporters he would be “surprised” if a recent spike in CoVID-19 hospitalizations was related to the ongoing George Floyd protests taking place in all five boroughs.

“I would be surprised if that’s what’s causing it,” de Blasio said Friday. “I think we’re much more likely in the next week [or] 10 days to see a manifestation, if there is one.”

“It is dangerous to be close together,” he admitted. “I don’t like that.”

“If you were at one of those protests, I would, out of an abundance of caution, assume that you are infected,” Governor Cuomo said Thursday. “One person, one person can infect hundreds if you were at a protest.”
