Shootings in New York City Soar 358 Percent Since Last Year Amidst Black Lives Matter Terror Campaign

Shootings in New York City have spiked 358 percent in comparison to this time last year, as Black Lives Matter (BLM) riots weaken the rule of law across the city.

There were 12 shootings over the previous week in 2019, and that has jumped to an incredible 55 shootings over the same week just one year later. This resulted in 74 people being wounded, according to data released by the NYPD.

This news comes after NYPD Commissioner Dermot Shea announced that a plainclothes unit meant to sniff out crime on the streets was disbanded. He made it clear that his agency would not be reversing their decision no matter how bad society devolves.

“We cannot stop our way out of this problem,” Shea said. “We need bad people held accountable,” he added.

The criminals are being unleashed, and the anti-crime strides achieved over the past few decades are being reversed under the rule of far-left Mayor Bill de Blasio.

De Blasio addressed the surge of crime with his usual empty platitudes: “We are not going back to the bad old days where there was too much gun violence in this city, nor are we going back to the bad old days” of police supposedly abusing civil liberties.

Criminals have received the message that de Blasio is actively hamstringing law enforcement. This has resulted in a wave of savagery that goes far beyond mere shootings.

Big League Politics reported last week on a black suspect allowed on the streets despite over 100 arrests who allegedly assaulted a 92-year-old white woman in a cowardly attack:

A black man was caught on surveillance video pushing a 92-year-old white woman to ground, in the type of violence that is becoming commonplace due to the rise of the racially divisive Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement.

Police have brought in 31-year-old Rashid Brimmage as the suspected culprit behind the attack. Brimmage is a serial criminal who has had constant run-ins with law enforcement, but has remained out of jail because of New York City’s lax criminal justice laws…

“Thanks to the outstanding work of @NYPDDetectives, this suspect has been apprehended,” Police Commissioner Dermot Shea wrote in a tweet on Tuesday.

Authorities say that the attack took place last Friday at 3:30 pm on 3rd Avenue near East 16th Street in the Gramercy Park area. The video footage was released on Monday, which resulted in Brimmage being apprehended as the suspect because cops were very familiar with him.

Brimmage is a convicted sex offender who has more than 100 previous arrests. These are the types of folks who are being worshiped like gods because of the far-left cultural transformation that is underway. These instances of anti-white violence are becoming far more commonplace as well.
