CCTV footage shows hooded man walking into Brooklyn elevator and shooting a victim: another episode in ‘Black Lives Matter’. Young black male thugs casually shooting each other in taxpayer-supported buildings where the idle poor live.
NYPD to overhaul stop and frisk in NYCHA houses—that is, they won’t bother doing that anymore. This means a lot more black men will be killed by other black men which evidently, pleases liberals. So conservatives should cheer this on, too. Evolution at work!
Any and all attempts at controlling thugs is halted or hated by liberals. I had to deal with this problem years ago. Here is an editorial from yesterday about the good old days in NYC: Harry Siegel: New York’s Fear City flashback – NY Daily News
The city ended 1975 with 1,645 murders and 177,032 burglaries, two crimes that, along with rape, The New York Times flatly declared “the police are virtually powerless to prevent.” That news article went on to assert that having so many cops made crime seem worse by making it too easy for citizens to report offenses, and gave officers an incentive to churn “garbage arrests” to justify their existence.
That was fear city, back when there was a lot to fear. Now, not so much.
We ended 2014 with 332 murders and 16,734 burglaries. Rape numbers, harder to compare, have also plummeted.
It turned out cops could do something about crime, thanks largely to the CompStat system Bill Bratton introduced here back in 1994. By putting cops on the dots, Deputy Commissioner Jack Maple’s crime map epitomized the principle that black lives matter. It was, as former Newser Michael Daly put it, a system that compelled cops “to treat crime in the city’s poorer neighborhoods as seriously as (they) would crime in a rich neighborhood.”
The police back then were doing ‘easy’ stuff while letting the slums literally burn to the ground. The NYT back then lied about crime due to the fact that the Times owners were all living in protected neighborhoods. I lived in the slums.
Crime was totally out of control by 1977. Few crimes were reported because either the people just gave up or like myself, they formed vigilante committees to deal directly with thugs. I decided to legalize things and force the city to recognize the true crime rate by reporting everything and making dozens of citizen’s arrests.
I fought with the police to start better record keeping. The CompStat system Bratton is using was actually based on a system pioneered by ME. Yes, me. And Captain Hill of the 78th Precinct in Brooklyn. Back in 1979, it wasn’t a computer system like the CompStat system today. It was this huge detailed map we set up and I explained how using color coded pins, we could track on a daily basis where crimes were happening.
Then came the novel part: pins showing where criminals FLED after committing crimes. That is, locating their home bases. We then set up a regime patrolling their home stashes instead of scattering the police all over. This was mainly for the undercover and detectives to do and it worked. I called these sites ‘cockroach holes’.
Generally, they were burned out buildings because the thugs knew not to run home after a crime but to cool it off by hiding in the many buildings burned down by rioters and arsonists and there were thousands of these buildings back then.
Fueled by a rise in felony assaults, murders and grand larceny complaints, crime in city housing projects jumped 7% in 2013 compared with the previous year, NYPD statistics reveal.
The new numbers, obtained exclusively by the Daily News, confirmed the growing sense of fear felt by many of the more than 400,000 residents of the city’s public housing developments.
Brooklyn projects had the most murders of any borough, climbing to 31, from 23 in 2012. In Manhattan projects, there were 10 slayings in 2013 versus six in 2012, and grand larceny complaints spiked there by 29%. In the Bronx, there were 14 murders in public housing, down from 18 in 2012, and shootings dipped to 56 from 87.
Despite the stubborn growth of overall housing crime, shootings in projects citywide were down by 27% — 196 compared with 267. The welcome dropoff suggested that the NYPD’s “Operation Crew Cut” — an effort to aggressively investigate street crews to curb shootings among people between the ages of 13 to 21 — had achieved promising results. NYPD sources said “Crew Cut” played a big role in the overall reduction in shootings.
Operation Crew Cut is dead. The new mayor killed it. The thugs hated it. They won. Note the killing age of 13-21. A huge part of the killings are kids under the age of 18. I saw this first hand years ago. The mothers of these thugs would boast about how their kids would not go ‘up the river’ while committing crimes and it was viewed by the older males as a way around crime laws.
You send out the kiddies to do the crimes! The oldsters would protect them and be look outs but would not be the actual criminal action person. They used kiddies to break into houses, shoot people, heist stuff in stores. This tradition has now become so bad, kiddies are killing each other and older people randomly and with a fair amount of disregard for life or limb.
In related news, the tenants of taxpayer buildings are complaining about the cold:
Yonkers Apartment Complex Residents Forced Out Of Homes Due To Lack Of Heat – YouTube: another Hottest Year EVAH story…
The interview of the tenants is crazy. The tenants are complaining that it is only 60º F. Well…last night it was bitter cold and with my woodstove running all night, it still went well below 60ºF inside. Which didn’t bother me in the slightest!
When I lived in a tent for ten years, it was never warm during the winter unless the sun came out. The subsidized housing that the tenants are complaining about isn’t ‘uninhabitable’. It may not feel like the Caribbean and I know from being a landlady in NYC in the past, many tenants like the ones in this news story want it around 80ºF in winter and will complain bitterly if it is colder.
My office right now is 62ºF. I am not freezing to death but I am wearing a warm robe. Oh, the horror! It isn’t just my NY mountain that is bitter cold, Breaking more low-temperature records in Hawaii with even Honolulu cold! The mountain roads in Hawaii are closed due to snow.
Powerful winter storm dumps snow across Middle East with Snow in Jerusalem, Damascus, Lebanon, Turkey, Athens, Algeria and Heavy Snowfall in Kyoto. The cold is deepening.
The Arctic is frozen. The Great Lakes are freezing up again like last year. The NOAA seasonal maps change constantly since they are very poor predictors. Note how they admit this Hottest Year EVAH isn’t so hot for half the continent: Climate Prediction Center – Seasonal Color Maps
But their long range prediction is always…in three months it will be HOTTEST YEAR EVAH! We promise you! This childish attempt at making global warming happen is irritating at this point. We had a colder than normal winter, spring, summer and except for one month, fall last year. And I don’t see a warmer than usual winter this January, either. Yet they have us set up for ‘much warmer than usual’.
