Stats show it: Vote out Democrats to cease the NY crime wave



Kudos to Mayor Eric Adams and the NYPD: They’re succeeding in bringing down homicides and shootings, crime stats for the summer time present. Problem is, almost each different crime class was up.

Murders have been down 51% final month over August 2021; for the yr, the drop is 11%. Shootings fell 31% in August, and 11% for the yr to this point. But severe crimes are up 35.6% over 2021; robberies, 39%.

The metropolis’s skinny blue line is overstretched: It can ship outcomes on one entrance, however not on all of them. And the 35,000-strong pressure is shrinking quicker than new recruits can fill the vacancies.

Part of the issue is the City Council’s elimination of qualified immunity for cops in civil lawsuits, which inspires retirements and discourages recruitment and proactive policing by placing a cop’s life financial savings in danger merely for doing the job.

But the principle blame goes to the state lawmakers who’ve turned the phrase “arrest” into a foul joke. The Manhattan Institute’s Nicole Gelinas sums it up neatly: “When cops do arrest folks for menacing or assaulting folks, prosecutors and judges, following bail legal guidelines, allow them to go.”  

Time and once more, the mayor has requested wise tweaks to these legal guidelines, however the Legislature refuses and ineffective Gov. Kathy Hochul pretends she’s already carried out what’s wanted.

Adams wasn’t improper in telling the July NYPD commencement class, “You’re policing in a local weather the place everyone seems to be in opposition to us.”

Honor the police for what they’ve managed to perform — and provides them the possibility to do extra by voting in opposition to Hochul and each different pol who’s standing in opposition to public security.
