• NYC Mayor de Blasio Finally Decides to ‘Fight’ Crime — Cops Not Buying It

    Surge Summary: In response to a recent spike on crime, police-hostile New York City Mayor Bill De Blasio released a plan to curb lawlessness. Some of the city’s law enforcement representatives are decidedly underwhelmed by the effort.

    Despite the Democratic Party water-carriers within major news outlets ignoring the killing of a black one-year-old baby boy in New York City, thanks to a number of conservative news and commentary media organizations, Internet bloggers, and star-status television and radio talk hosts this case received enormous attention. The child was shot by an armed thug while sitting in his stroller.

    The ultra-socialist Mayor Bill de Blasio, who has also ignored the violence by street toughs, found it more important to draw “Black Lives Matter” on the street in front of President Donald Trump’s home in the Manhattan high-rise Trump Tower. His priority has been to please the protesters, looters, killers and cop-fighters and acquiesce to their demands.

    Within a few weeks, de Blasio — who was never respected by this own police officers — cut the law enforcement budget by $1-billion, disbanded the successful special operations squads known as the Anti-Crime Units, and other actions that aided criminals and radical political activists or anarchists.

    After another night where there were 13 people wounded in 10 shooting incidents, Mayor Bill de Blasio announced a Central Brooklyn Violence Prevention plan.

    The plan — which was posted by City Hall on Twitter —  includes:

    • – An increased police presence in the 77th and 79th precincts in Crown Heights section of Brooklyn.
    • – Increase police visibility within the hot spots Friday and Saturday in 7 locations.
    • – Peace marches by community and clergy.
    • – Open Streets resource fairs, info on housing, jobs, youth services. (Yet, religious New Yorkers are prevented from congregating.)
    • – Mobile trauma units, critical mental health and support services. One police officer highly recommended mandatory mental-health treatment for Democrats running the city and state on New York.
    • – Bedford-Stuyvesant Anti-Gun Violence Task Force – The first meeting [was scheduled for the week of July 19].

    Also on Wednesday morning [July 15], six people were shot, one died, when a gang of gunmen opened fire on them in Crown Heights section of Brooklyn.

    One-year-old Davell Gardner was shot and killed by thugs who are being embraced by New York’s Democrats.

    In a statement from One Police Plaza, NYPD Chief of Detectives Rodney Harrison said: “It’s important that people understand that we are seeing a lot of gang violence here in Brooklyn. We have to come together and find a way to stop the gang violence and it starts with not just law enforcement, but a community effort to see what we can do with the youth, to get them in a different direction, get them out of these gangs. So it’s going to be a team effort to change the violence that we are seeing recently throughout Brooklyn command and throughout New York City.” 

    In a letter to Mayor Bill de Blasio and other New York leaders, PBA President Patrick Lynch said city officials “created an atmosphere of hatred and disrespect toward police officers and criminals are taking full advantage.”

    When the New York Attorney General issued guidelines for an overhaul of the NYPD, Lynch called them “reheated proposals that have been part of the anti-police agenda for decades.” He also criticized cuts to the NYPD’s budget, and in a statement implied that fewer officers on streets would cause crime to spike.

    NYPD Chief of Department Terrance Monahan recently said that “anti-police rhetoric” has “basically destroyed morale” among his officers.

    “Our cops are unsure what to do,” Monahan told the Police Executive Research Forum last month. “They think there’s no reason to do any quality-of-life enforcement.”
