Black Community Leaders Calling for Comeback of Anti-Crime Unit Due to NYC Crime Spike

Linkedin Share

You don’t know what you’ve got until it’s gone. Those aren’t just great song lyrics, as the words can be applied to anything and everything a person takes for granted.

Bill de Blasio and Andrew Cuomo might want to take note.

Check this out, from TDW:

Leaders in the black community in New York City are calling on the New York City Police Department to deal with the recent crime surge in the city by reinstating the plainclothes anti-crime unit that the department recently dismantled as anti-police sentiment exploded in wake of the death of George Floyd.

Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams, a former cop, “became the second member of the African-American community to call on the NYPD to stop the violence by re-instituting the Anti-Crime Unit — undercover cops whose job was to get guns off the street,” CBS New York reported. “This, as shootings for the week went up 277%, 49 compared to 13 in 2019. The number of victims is up 253%, 60 compared to 17 in 2019.”

Weren’t we told by lefties that crime would decrease if there were less police officers on the streets?

Isn’t that basically what the first lady of New York City said, herself?

From New York Post:

Shootings are surging this week in New York City, with 28 incidents and 38 victims reported since Monday — the day the NYPD disbanded its plainclothes anti-crime unit, The Post learned on Friday.

By comparison, the same week last year there were only 12 shootings for the entire week.
