UNHINGED: Nine shot overnight as spike in NYC gun violence continues

With this dramatic increase in gun violence facing the city, it is clear that something needs to be done.

While overall crime rates have dropped slightly since last year, the “concrete jungle” is becoming a jungle-gym of gun violence.

The number of shooting victims is up 103% this year.

And with protests over police reform happening all over the country, the number is only expected to rise.

At least nine people were shot across New York City Wednesday and early Thursday, according to the NYPD via the New York Post.

Most recently, a 32-year-old man was shot in the right leg and left shoulder around 12:50 a.m. in Brownsville, according to police.

Around 12:15 a.m., another man walked into NYC Health + Hospitals/Harlem with multiple gunshot wounds to his body, including his chest, leg and arm, police said.

And three hours earlier, a 30-year-old man was shot during a squabble on the grounds of Cypress Hills Houses.

A total of six shootings with eight victims were reported Wednesday. Two homicides are included in that total.

Bertha Arriaga, a 43-year-old mom, was struck in the head by a stray bullet shot through her bedroom window.

And a 25-year-old man was killed, two others injured, in a drive-by shooting on West 16th street and Neptune Avenue in Coney Island.

The other victims are said to be in stable condition.

With this dramatic increase in gun violence facing the city, it is clear that something needs to be done.

But what?

And how long before it’s too late?

In a press conference last week, Mayor Bill de Blasio said that a plan is coming, according to WPIX News.

“The solution is to work with communities, and that’s what neighborhood policing is all about,” he said. “Over the next weeks, we’re going to be putting forward a number of very specific plans.”

    Democrats always seem to have plans “in the works”… plans that never seem to materialize.

    I would imagine defunding the police is in his plan. They already what was it, Cut $1billion from NYC police department? Cut $1Billion in police department then Police Department is forced to make cuts on staff and now we have 103% increase in shootings. Yet they still haven’t thought.. Hey I noticed after we cut $1b in budgets that we seen a 103% increase in shootings. Maybe that was a bad move. No they won’t say that. Instead as Democrats always do create a plan that continues to ruin the black community and I’ve had enough of their liberal bullshit!

Real estate websites Redfin, Realtor.com will no longer display crime data ‘due to racial bias concerns’

The woke culture is not only a facilitator for crime, but it also protects criminals and endangers citizens

The woke culture is not only a facilitator for crime, but it also protects criminals and endangers citizens. Two popular homebuying websites, Zillow and Redfin, are the latest companies to kowtow to a weak and sensitive culture.

Redfin and Realtor.com both “put forth announcements on the same day back in December that their sites will no longer display or gather any crime data for the neighborhoods covered within them due to racial bias concerns” reports Steadfastandloyal.com.

In a blog post, CEO of Realtor.com David Doctorow wrote the company is attempting to “break down those hurdles” of discrimination in homeownership. “For example, earlier this month, we removed the crime map layer from all search results on Realtor.com to rethink the safety information we share on Realtor.com and how we can best integrate it as part of a consumer’s home search experience,” stated Doctorow.

“In the weeks and months ahead, we plan to examine closely what neighborhood safety means for buyers and renters who use our site so we can reimagine how we integrate safety data on Realtor.com. Our goal is to ensure we are providing consumers with the most valuable, fair and accurate neighborhood data so they can make informed decisions about where they want to rent or purchase their next home,” added Doctorow.

In a blog post on the same day, the chief growth officer for Redfin, Christian Taubman, wrote Redfin was entirely aware that people want to know “whether they’ll feel safe in a given home or neighborhood,” but “the data available don’t allow us to speak accurately to that question, and given the long history of redlining and racist housing covenants in the United States there’s too great a risk of this inaccuracy reinforcing racial bias.”

“We believe that Redfin–and all real estate sites–should not show neighborhood crime data,” Taubman stated.

Taubman went on to inaccuracies of crime reporting as an excuse for not adding the information to its website. “In the 2019 survey, people reporting crimes were more likely to describe their offender as young, male, and Black than would be expected given the representation of those groups in the population,” he said.

Taubman concluded, “in this case we’re confident that the crime data that are available today ought not to be on Redfin or any other real estate site.”

Chicago 911 Dispatcher says ‘All Hell Has Broken Loose’ Crime is ‘Nonstop’

The liberal run city of Chicago is in a downward spiral suffocated by crime. Few understand what is happening better than 911 dispatchers who have the impossible task of listening to people suffer through crimes, yet unable to help them due to liberal policies creating a violent crime epidemic and police shortage.

Keith Thornton posted a video to Facebook last week saying Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot is “a disgrace.” Thornton took it upon himself to warn citizens about which Chicago police district is unavailable due to the staffing shortages.

In an interview with Fox & Friends Thornton said that “all hell has broken loose” in Chicago while local officials have failed to act. “It’s been shenanigans, and it’s just nonstop, day after day. It doesn’t matter if it’s morning time, evening time, whatever –at all hours of the day, there is a massive amount of crime taking place within the city of Chicago.”

“When I’m getting text messages from officers telling me that they’re scared and afraid for their safety because they’re working by themselves, and then the beat next to them would normally back them up, they’re not even there because the cars are down. That’s a problem. It’s a safety concern” Thornton said in an interview with Chicago’s WLS-TV.

Chicago Police Department data shows homicides, shootings, thefts and criminal sexual assaults are all up drastically compared to last year. Lightfoot has not only been a proponent of defunding the police, she also behaved viciously towards law enforcement.

After Chicago Police Officer Ella French was killed during a routine traffic stop, Lightfoot blamed “guns and the violence they bring” for her death. When Lightfoot visited French’s partner who was wounded and fighting for his life at the time at the hospital, dozens of officers at the hospital turned their back on the mayor.
