New York City Sees 205 Percent Increase In Shootings Over Same Time Last Year

The left is still talking about dismantling the police in major American cities.

In New York City, they have already dismantled a major portion of their plain-clothed police force.

This decision and the unsupportive actions of Mayor Bill de Blasio have already had consequences.

The Washington Examiner reports:

Shootings in New York City up 205% in weeks since disbandment of plainclothes unit compared to last year

After making the decision to disband its plainclothes “anti-crime” unit, New York City has seen a 205% increase in shootings in comparison to the same time period last year.

According to the New York Post, 116 shootings took place in the city since the officers were reassigned on June 15 to July 2, a 205% increase from the same period in 2019 when there were 38 shootings.

New York City saw 205 shootings last month, making it the city’s “bloodiest June in 24 years.”

“I feel like we are giving the streets back to the criminals,” said the mother of one shooting victim, whose son was shot just days after the unit was disbanded. “Whatever the problem they have, address it. But don’t disband the unit. Many lives would have been saved. Not just my son.”

The use of plainclothes officers has come into question in recent weeks. After the death of George Floyd, a black man who died in Minneapolis police custody in late May, the nation has been looking for answers on possible police reform measures.

This is insanity.

How bad is it going to have to get before people demand a change?
