After a dramatic weekend of gun violence in New York City that left three people dead and 16 others wounded, community leaders are calling on Mayor de Blasio to step up and crack down on shootings plaguing the city's streets. The mayor responded Sunday night, saying the NYPD would beef up patrols in high crime neighborhoods.
Nearly 20 people were shot in seven shootings since Friday. Two people were killed and 11 wounded on Sunday. On Saturday, one person was killed and five others were wounded in gun violence.A 24-year-old man was killed in a shooting in Canarsie late Friday.
Early Sunday, a 20-year-old man was shot to death in a playground in the Soundview section of the Bronx. A short time later on Sunday, a 46-year-old man was killed in Fort Greene. And then in East New York, nine people were shot at a family house party.
Late Sunday afternoon, community leaders demanded de Blasio do more to end the violence. At a Brooklyn Borough Hall rally, Tony Herbert, a community advocate, said that de Blasio has ignored his coalition of parents and clergy, who want to put thousands of volunteers in neighborhoods where violence is prevalent to mentor at-risk young people.THESE LEFTISTS ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE SURGE IN GUN CRIME BECAUSE THEY ARE THE ONES WHO DEMANDED AN END TO STOP AND FRISK.
IF THEY REALLY WANT TO LOWER GUN CRIME, THEN THEY'D DEMAND A RETURN OF STOP AND FRISK.
BUT THEY'D RATHER LET THE GUN CRIME CONTINUE TO SURGE AND EXPLOIT THE VIOLENCE TO LINE THEIR POCKETS.
THEY WANT THE MAYOR TO FUND THEIR PROGRAMS AS IF THEY WOULD LOWER CRIME.
MORE COPS AND MORE COPS DOING STOP AND FRISK ARE WHAT WILL LOWER CRIME.
AND AN END TO THE WAR AGAINST COPS AND THE WHOLE BLACK LIVES MATTER AGITPROP BS.
BUT THESE LEFTIST SCUM WILL NEVER SUPPORT WHAT WORKS BECAUSE THEY AEE PARTISANS FIRST.
