According to a report from 1010 WINS, a surge in gun violence has resulted in over 100 people getting wounded or killed in dozens of shootings all over New York City during the past nine days, police revealed on June 28, 2020.
There have been 112 victims in 83 shootings over a nine-day stretch that ended on June 27, per law enforcement accounts of the situation. Most of the victims were expected to survive, but at least six people have died in the last week, while others sustained serious or critical injuries.
The NYPD released the following info about the past nine days of shootings:
Friday, 6/19 – 8 shooting incidents with 9 victims.
Saturday, 6/20 -18 shooting incidents with 24 victims.
Sunday, 6/21 – 2 shooting incidents with 5 victims.
Monday, 6/22 – 11 shooting incidents with 17 victims.
Tuesday, 6/23 – 10 shooting incidents with 10 victims.
Wednesday, 6/24 – 3 shooting incidents with 5 victims.
Thursday, 6/25 – 5 shooting incidents with 8 victims.
Friday, 06/26 – 9 incidents with 10 victims.
Saturday, 06/27 – 17 incidents with 24 victims.
As of June 28, the NYPD reported that there have been 503 shooting incidents with 605 victims so far in 2020.
NYPD Commissioner Dermot Shea revealed last week that New York city’s homicide rate reached a 5-year high and that the criminal justice system was “imploding.” The number of people shot has also increased by 42 percent compared to 2010.
In a statement to 1010 WINS, Brooklyn community advocate Tony Herbert said he’s overwhelmed with the increase in gun violence.
“It has just been ridiculous how it has taken place, because we saw a serious decline over a five year period and we have working relationships to work with our police department with their community policing,” he stated. “Now look at what we’re faced with. I have not seen anything like this in my entire life living here in New York.”
Once a stellar example of public order for other major metro areas to follow, New York City is quickly becoming another run-of-the-mill urban center with its rising crimes rates.
If policymakers in the Big Apple don’t get their act together, New York City could witness a massive exodus, as residents look to more red states for safer and more economically prosperous areas to live in.
Southern Baptist Convention Reverses Course on Name Change After BLP Reporting
They say they’re not changing their name.
The Southern Baptist Convention has sought to dispel reporting from Big League Politics on the organization’s planned name change, arguing that the institution isn’t formally changing its name.
To correct multiple inaccurate reports, “We Are Great Commission Baptists” is the 2021 Annual Meeting THEME.
The GCB descriptor was approved in 2012 for churches to use if it would be helpful in their local context.
The Southern Baptist Convention remains our official name.
— SBC Executive Committee (@SBCExecComm) September 17, 2020
But a close look at the American Christian church’s plans relating to its name reveal that it’s played with the idea far more seriously than they’re making it seem.
Reports of a name change first emerged in a Washington Post article published on Tuesday. SBC President JD Greear told the Post that “hundreds of churches” affiliated with the denomination had “committed” to using the phrase “Great Commission Baptist” as an alternative to the denomination’s longtime moniker. The change would come as Greear touts his support of the Black Lives Matter, although he’s been careful in pointing out he doesn’t support any formal organization related to the movement. Greear also is renaming the church he personally pastors with the term.
The SBC’s 2021 convention will also organize under the motto of “We Are Great Commission Baptists.” Sounds a lot like a name change, even if the SBC’s leadership is steadfastly maintaining it isn’t.
The name ‘Great Commission Baptist’ is theologically sound in the Christian religion, but it’s somewhat questionable that the organization’s leader appears to be emphasizing it at a moment in which political correctness is making its entryism into many Christian churches and organizations.
It seems as if the organization’s figurehead is keen to present himself as a liberal-style suburban Evangelical to the Washington Post, but he changed his tune quite quickly when the rank and file membership of Southern Baptist churches learned that he was promoting the idea of a name change.
