    Quote from the link:

    New York City first lady Chirlane McCray — whom Mayor Bill de Blasio has credited for his executive decision to jump on the “defund the police” bandwagon — said no cops patrolling the streets would be a “nirvana,” according to a report.​

    Quote from the link:

    The spree of gunfire brought the number of shootings since Monday to 59, with a total 81 people shot, including six murders.

    By comparison, there were nine murders but just 26 shootings for the entire week during the same time last year, sources said.

    Quote from link:
    “Complete lawlessness,” one cop termed the incident in Harlem in the early hours Sunday — and it’s fast becoming an apt description of much of the city.

    Officers responded to an electronic ShotSpotter alert just before 4 a.m., and discovered a block party still raging. Worse, the crowd attacked the police, with members screaming obscenities as they hurled bottles and other debris at the cruisers.​

    Crime Falls As New York Abandons Stop-and-Frisk

    In 2013, observing that nearly 90 percent of those stopped were completely innocent, a federal judge found that stop-and-frisk was racially discriminatory and unconstitutional, and Bill de Blasio won the mayoral campaign after promising to end stop-and-frisk.

    Many critics predicted widespread mayhem and violence would follow. As Kyle Smith wrote this month:

    Like many conservatives, I had grave concerns about curtailing the New York City police department’s controversial tactic of stopping and frisking potential suspects for weapons. . . . Restricting the tactic, I thought, would cause an uptick, maybe even a spike, in crime rates.

    Mr. Smith cited NYPD data showing that, as stops dropped to 12,000 in 2016 (a decline of about 98 percent from 2011 levels), and about 10,000 in 2017, crime rates continued to fall further.

    Four of the five years with the lowest number of homicides in New York City since 1960 have been during de Blasio’s term.

    And 2017 saw considerable reductions in almost every category of major crime, which last year reached the lowest rate since New York began keeping extensive crime records in the early 1960s. The total number of major crimes in 2017 was down by about 6 percent since 2016, itself a record-low year, Mr. Smith wrote.

    Mr. Smith now acknowledges that Mr. de Blasio was “right to draw attention to the social cost” of the stop-and-frisk program, under which “hundreds of thousands of New Yorkers were unjustly subjected to embarrassment or even humiliation.”

    Yep. This confirms the findings in Camden, where less-abusive policing was shown to decrease crime.

    We're just discussing how reducing police abuse lowered crime rate over the past few years.

    I doubt that Mayor de Blasio and Governor Cuomo spent the weekend addressing the problems of their jurisdictions out on a golf course and tweeting "White Power" videos!​

    I live here in NYC. People aren’t rioting in the streets . Most are just quietly going back to work.
