Crime is up in New York

March 7, 2020 |

People feign outrage whenever anyone suggests that the left is actively trying to destroy America, but even if you grant that they aren’t, if they WERE, what could they possibly be doing that’s any different from what they’re doing already?

Here are a couple of inexplicable cases in point: New Yorkers have watched in anger and astonishment over the past few months as a new state law (written by the Democrats they elected to absolute power) allows criminals to be released without bail to commit the same crimes over and over. To no thinking person’s surprise, this has vastly emboldened criminals and sparked a big jump in crime.

In New York City, major crimes were up 22.5% in February from one year ago, and shootings were up 7.1%. Since the strict gun laws have only gotten tighter since then, while only restrictions on criminals were loosened, someone with rudimentary deductive skills might think that proves controlling criminals is a more effective way to reduce shootings than passing more gun laws.

New York City has seen increases in robberies, felony assault, burglary, grand larceny, grand larceny of a vehicle and hate crimes. Of course, attacks on police officers are up. Even “squeegee guys” are back! Rape is down slightly from 2018, but that could just be due to failing to report it to police.

Retired NYPD Bronx detective Malcolm Reiman was there in the hellish pre-Giuliani days under liberal Mayor David Dinkins. He told Fox News, “Crime was out of control. People forget how bad it was…Those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it."

Reiman said, "You would walk down the subway steps every day, and all you could smell was urine; it was littered with muggers and mentally-ill people everywhere. Subways were truly terrifying places. Those protesting today don't know what it was like for everyone back then."

Well, they’re getting a taste (or smell) of it now, and without even having to fly to San Francisco or L.A. But what did they expect when they elected (and reelected!) Dinkins’ far-left protégé, Mayor Bill DeBlasio, who seems more concerned with protecting criminal illegal aliens than his own cops and constituents?

Maybe the power of video will shake some sense into New York voters’ heads if they see this latest horrific outrage on TV or social media. A 15-year-old girl in Brooklyn was surrounded on the street by five male teens (reportedly “friends” of hers with whom she’d had an earlier altercation.) They savagely beat her and left her lying on the sidewalk with head trauma and other injuries before stealing the Air Jordan shoes off her feet and running away. Luckily, the entire sickening assault was caught on video, and the alleged attackers turned themselves in to police. Although, under the current regime, who knows if anything will happen to them, or if they’ll be out beating up another girl by this time tomorrow?

This is what happens when young people have no respect for the law or the police. And why should that be a surprise when the political leaders in charge of enforcing the laws obviously have no respect for the law or the police either?

    It gets more and more difficult to understand the thinking of the Democratic Party. Cuomo and his pals have destroyed New York State. They are oblivious to their constituents. Between heaping taxes on New Yorkers, a 6 billion deficit, murdering babies at birth, a proposal of 5 billion to make NY green (again.. there is a 6 billion deficit) and now lawlessness it’s no wonder people are moving out in droves.

    When are people going to wise up? Maybe when the arrests of dems and Rino's begin? Can't happen too soon for me.

    I will not be afraid to speak the truth: the perpetrators of this heinous crime all appear to be black. They should all be charged and prosecuted as adults for attempted murder. What if this were your daughter ?
    You cannot be a Christian and vote for any Democrat.
    Please pray for our Republican candidates , their families , our Country and our President Trump and Vice President Pence and their families. I pray that the girl victim will recover without brain damage.
    I know Our Lord said," Vengeance is Mine", but I pray that He will seek it Now.

    I live near Seattle, Washington, the Prosecutor REFUSES to charge Repeat Offenders in “Downtown Incidents”.
    Businesses are OUTRAGED over the Rampant Crime!
    City Council and the Police Chief are complicit in Protecting the Criminals!
    The Mayor doesn’t give a crap about the Crime, she’s more worried about how to pay for the Homeless Epidemic in Downtown Seattle. Putting the Homeless on a Bus and sending them Away From Seattle! Yes, this is happening!
    The City Council wants to buy a $120,000 RV, and use it for a “Rolling Injection Site”. They (Seattle/ King County Government) encourage Drug Use, ( just not in Their Neighborhoods) Drug users Will Inject Heroine right in front of the Police. The Police have their hands tied behind their backs, and the Mayor nor ANY CITY GOVERNMENT OFFICIAL has their backs!!!!!

    I live in California, that should be a crime in itself and let alone that I was born in SF. I am ashamed of both. I remember when corporal punishment was the norm if you did something bad. My parents kick my butt when I did bad things. And yes, I did deserve it. Now, basically if you are a criminal or illegal alien you can get away with murder. Anarchy is here in America and it will get worse. I think it may be to late for us to recover fully unless this liberals and their families start receiving the short end of the stick like the rest of us. I hope not. Really can't run away because these stupid liberal run away to a good conservative State only to destroy it's values with their imbecilic ideals. Mr. Huckabee, God Help Us!

    If the laws do not object to certain activities, the laws are then translated into “permissions” . So, just commenting or filming them, becomes a Hollywood Dress rehearsal

    History always repeats itself. Over and Over again. We Had WW1, Twenty - One years (21) later, we had WW11, Then Korea, Started: 1950 and ended 1953 Vietnam: 1961 thru 1973. Both wars began long before it was Officially an engagement.
    Now: Afghanistan, Iraq.
    Politically: All the Conflicts from the end of: WW11 to Afghanistan were politically run and every one Failed.
    We Had A Civil War. It appears that the Democrat Party, who is loosing badly after the " Trump Impeachment" is creating CHAOS! Thieves run: California,( Chicago), Illinois, Oregon, Washington ( The State), New York ( The State). It Was thieves that started the Civil War. History Repeating itself????

    This Texas boy lived in upstate NY. Everyone I knew hated NY City. They wished they could saw it off and let it float out into the sound. Nothing’s changed.

    I was horrified when I saw the news about the girl being attacked by a gang of boys. This is what's wrong with this country, states runned by democrats/liberal Governors, Mayors, etc. New York should be ashamed of doing away with that crazy law. What in God's name were they thinking? New Yorkers better smarten up when election time rolls around. How would these democrats react if it was one of their family members? Oh they must have security 24/7!!! I think DaBlazio is a nut job!

    There is crime out there and we can only get rid of crime through the Power of the Lord Jesus Christ.>>>We cannot get rid of murdering little human babies and throwing them into a nearby trash can--- WHEN WE ALLOW OUR MISSIONARIES TO TRY TO FORCE ABORTION AT 9 MOS. PREGNANT ON AMERICAN CITIZENS OVERSEAS. (MILITARY & MILITARY DEPENDANTS). WITH GOD'S HELP, I WILL NOT SHUT UP---SIT DOWN---& SUBMIT TO THEIR BLACKMAIL OR SPIRITUAL TYRANNY OR THEIR LIES. >>>MY BIBLE TELLS ME THERE WILL BE NO LIARS & NO MURDERERS IN HEAVEN. I WILL NOT WITH GOD HELP, TAKE AWAY ANY PREACHERS RIGHT TO PREACH ANYTHING---BUT I WILL SAY THAT WHEN THE BIBLE SAYS IF YOUR BROTHER OFFENDS YOU GO TO HIM----(THERE COULD BE ONE REASON WHY IT SAYS THAT & I BELIEVE IT IS IN ORDER THAT IT GIVES THE SO CALLED OFFENDER THE RIGHT TO SAY I DID NOT DO THAT.) I HAVE HAD TRIALS WITHOUT JURIES & JURIES WITHOUT TRIALS WITH NO REPRESENTATION. >>>> AND OUR PRESIDENT HAS HAD TRIALS WITHOUT JURIES AND JURIES WITHOUT TRIALS & WITH IMPROPER REPRESENTATION OR THE LACK THEREOF. >>>> BRING THE CHURCH TOGETHER AND PREACH THE TRUTH THAT FORCED ABORTIONS ARE OF THE ANTI-CHRIST AS MUCH AS PLANNED PARENTHOOD MURDERS ARE OF THE ANTI-CHRIST. THIS NOT SOMETHING ONE CAN SIMPLY GET OVER. I CANNOT DO ANYTHING ABOUT THIS But Our PEOPLE IN THE CHURCH CAN FIGHT THEIR RENEGADE CHURCH SYSTEM & FIGHT THAT INSTEAD OF FIGHTING A HELPLESS YOUNG MOTHER AND DO SO ALL UNTO HER OLD AGE. brp.

    What a sensitive sensitive nerve ..in my heart....you hit talking about crime in NY city....because that was what, in the 1950's, kept drawing David Wilkerson TO NY city and Christ's love through this one man brought the crime rate down! Oh, Christians talk a lot ABOUT Christ's love AND YET they don't have a clue as to how Wilkerson could say to Nicky Cruz....while blood was dripping from his mouth where Nicky Cruz had just punched him .... "Nicky, before I leave the city, I want to tell you one more time, 'Jesus loves you and so do"!

    AND it was upon hearing David say that to him that Nicky starting hitting him in the face...and, after he slammed Wilkerson against a cement wall, he put his switchblade to Wilkerson 's throat and said, "man, I thought I told you that if you ever said that to me one more time, I'd slit you to bits!!!" David replied, "you could do that Nicky, but every one of those bits would cry out, 'Nicky, Jesus loves you and so do I' "........AND BECAUSE THERE IS SUPERNATURAL POWER IN CHRIST'S LOVE, Christ' love THROUGH Wilkerson TURNED THIS KILLER INTO A SAINT!!!

    Nicky Cruz knows who I am and I am going to try and get in touch with him because I want him to know how his book "Run Baby Run" has moved kids to put down their guns! NY city needs another David Wilkerson!

    IN RESPONSE TO YOUR LAST TWO STATEMENTS:

    "This is what happens when young people have no respect for the law or the police. And why should that be a surprise when the political leaders in charge of enforcing the laws obviously have no respect for the law or the police either?"

    WHY STOP THERE?....Can we change the wording a little.... "This is what is happening in our schools. And why should it be a surprise that young people have no respect for their teachers...and other school authorities... when the political leaders have no respect for the President of the United States!

    Remember when Mrs Clinton boldly stated to New Yorker's "I'm one of you". Well I guess she fits in with the rest of the crooks that abide there

    If some of these criminals would go after the mayor ,and others who are in authority, then there would be some changes. It's strange that they never get hurt by this evil.
    If the voters would pay attention to what's happening, and give some thought to what the solution is things would be different. People these days talk too much, play too much, and know too little, which means they are ignorant.

    Mike, it sure seems to me that New York and San Francisco are trying to outdo each other in crime and filth! Every city run by Democrats is a rats nest. People either need to leave or throw the do-nothing Demos out!

    I was born in New York in 1949. And by 1962 crime was so bad I thought it was a horrible place to live.

    I am ashamed to say I was even born there. I was raised in the South Bronx. To read your article now is sickening to me. I don’t ever want to step foot back in New York.

    How can people continue to put leftist radical communist in office, then blame our president for the damage the Democratic Party has perpetrated on their citizens?

    For another example look what has happened in New Mexico. Every one is released released without bail.
