posted by Hannity Staff - 7.13.20

Big Apple Mayor Bill de Blasio defended his decision to defund the NYPD by $1 billion Monday morning; saying the move was the “right direction” and the money will go towards “youth programs and recreation centers.”

“There’s a lot of different pieces. We obviously took money out of the NYPD budget and put it into youth programs, social services, recreation centers. That’s really the right direction,” said the Mayor.

“The fact that we’re going to have to fight crime in many ways is also clear… We need communities to come forward through civic leadership, the clergy… They can do things the NYPD can’t do,” he added.

posted by Hannity Staff - 7.06.20

More than 500,000 residents have fled the Big Apple since the Coronavirus pandemic began in March; citing the contagion, ‘Black Lives Matter’ protests, anti-police violence, and major budget cuts to the NYPD.

“Two bullet-ridden bodies lay sprawled on bloodstained concrete steps. Alongside, relatives of the victims are wailing and collapse to the ground. In another part of the city, a gang of youths use spray paint to disable security cameras before robbing a corner store. Later, video footage captures police officers sitting helplessly in their patrol car as a baying crowd hurls glass bottles at them,” reports the Daily Mail.

“This is lawless New York – a city that was once America’s glittering crown jewel but which risks descending into mob rule,” adds the website.

Murders, shootings, and burglaries are up triple-digits in some neighborhoods.

AS CRIME SPIRALS… De Blasio Says He’s ‘LIBERATING 5th AVENUE’ With ‘Black Lives Matter’ Mural

posted by Hannity Staff - 7.09.20

While major felonies like shootings and burglaries jump triple-digits in the Big Apple, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio says his administration is “liberating 5th avenue” with a ‘Black Lives Matter’ mural in front of Trump Tower.

“We are not denigrating anything,” he said. “We are liberating Fifth Avenue”

 

 

Municipal workers in New York City began installing a ‘Black Lives Matter’ mural in front of Trump Tower Thursday as the Big Apple witnessed a 130% jump in shootings and 30% increase in murders in recent weeks.

 

The NYPD released their crime statistics for the month of June this week; showing a shocking increase in shootings, murders, burglaries, and more across all five boroughs.

The disturbing trend shows a 130% jump in gun violence and 30% increase in homicides in the Big Apple.

The NYPD disbanded its elite anti-crime unit on June 15th after Mayor Bill de Blasio announced a $1 billion budget cut for the police department.
