Thugs love to point out that cops shoot them. But what about the victims of thugs? Here is one from New York City. A very young child. Unlike the thug pictures used to promote the idea that they were sweet young men when shot by cops, using photos years ago instead of their mug shots, this is a real child who really was totally innocent killed by a black thug who believes that black lives do not matter at all. And this philosophy of the Street has taken off like a rocket with black thugs shooting up all those cities where cops were told to stand down. What a surprise this is not. I know very well after fighting crime in black neighborhoods in the past, stopping thugs is a violent, ugly business and I was not delicate or nice about it, either nor were anyone working with me. We were tough, hard and persistent and we used muscle. Liberals believe that being nice makes thugs nice. Nope. Never.
The little boy is dead. Shot by a black young male. Unlike with cop shootings, the family is demanding a stop to these black thugs shooting guns: Shooting victim’s family begs de Blasio: ‘We need stop-and-frisk’ | New York Post
A surge in New York City murders — including four people slain in just five bloody hours as the weekend began — has grieving family members begging Mayor de Blasio to bring back the NYPD’s right to search for guns.
“We need stop-and-frisk,” Stacey Calhoun, the devastated uncle of one of the four fatalities, said Saturday afternoon, tears filling his eyes over the nephew he had just lost.
Jahhad Marshall — a charismatic 23-year-old with a promising future as a chef — had died of a stray bullet to his back early that morning outside the Queensbridge Houses in Long Island City, police said.
“Somebody has to put their foot down,” the anguished uncle said.
Here is a picture of the recent victim, Marshall. Will black leaders make memorials about him? Plaques in the street where he died? Will Obama talk about him? No, this is just another hard working, non-criminal black citizen shot dead by black thugs running wild.
Shootings in New York City have been rising for two straight years, the first time that has happened since the end of the 1990s, when the city was still in the early years of a remarkable downturn in crime.
Homicides by gunfire, seen as a key measure of preventable violence, are up steeply this year. Of the 135 killings through May, 98 involved a gun, up from 69 such killings at this point in 2013 and in 2014.
This is a 100% rise in shootings. Highly significant.
Taken together, the trends raise concern heading into the summer months, when street violence is often most pronounced. So far this year, there have been 439 shootings, 20 percent higher than the same period in 2013, which was a historically low year. But this year’s figure is still well under the more than 2,000 logged over the same period two decades ago…
Two decades ago was when I told NYC that I was packing up and leaving. I needed to protect myself, can’t fight thugs as I aged. Today, it is nearly impossible to do what I used to do every week back in 1979. Give more time and the statistics will match that dark period when riding the subway required arms or deep connections with the subway cops which I had in spades.
I once had an entire car of young vandals arrested. They were stunned when it happened. Freaked out when I showed up in court.
This year, officers have stepped back from some areas of policing, particularly with regard to marijuana possession and some other low-level offenses. They have logged hundreds of thousands fewer stops, summonses and arrests than in previous years. Mr. Bratton, the nation’s pre-eminent practitioner of so-called quality-of-life policing, has called the drop in police activity a “peace dividend” gained from low crime and paid to average New Yorkers.
No one wants the cops to give them tickets. It is immensely annoying but then, when we are the victims of dangerous drivers or criminals, we want the cops to hand out tickets and make arrests! This is quite natural. What is unnatural is to have politicians attacking the police in very murky cases where it is pretty obvious that the cops were not doing anything wrong considering the circumstances. Yes, there is police brutality and they sometimes break the law, themselves. But the cases chosen by the black leaders to highlight were NOT clear cut at all but very murky and when all the information comes out, it is obvious that no one patrolling streets would have done much better or different.
In Baltimore, the mayor and the prosecutor decided to attack the police in an extremely murky case. Now, the city is being abandoned by the cops who fear touching any thugs for any reason. And I don’t blame them, I would depart, myself. Why expose oneself this way? Better to let the thugs do their thing, as the mayor said, ‘Let it burn.’
SOON AFTER the rioting in Baltimore ended in late April, the world’s media turned their gaze elsewhere. Then, as a petulant police force retreated to its station houses, the real carnage began.
May was the most lethal month in the city in more than 40 years; in per capita terms, it may have been the bloodiest month since recordkeeping began.
There were 43 victims of homicide in the city last month, the most since August 1972, when Baltimore ’s population, now 600,000, was about 900,000.
The police are ‘petulant’ because they have no idea how to do anything. Someone who has no experience dealing with thugs would think, ‘Oh, this is so easy! Be gentle’. Um, no. Thugs are always looking for an ‘out’. This includes screaming in pain when not in pain or pretending to collapse only to take off like a rabbit a minute later, etc. This happens day after day after day and telling real from fake is very, very tricky.
Of course, liberals hate me for saying all this, it means I am a nasty person. But I will note that any liberal who becomes a cop usually ends up acting like and thinking like cops they hate because this is pure survival. The mess that Ferguson and Baltimore are today is a GOP victory tomorrow. Because no sane person wants what those cities now have: total chaos and rule by armed black thugs who have no mercy for anyone…anyone at all, babies or the elderly or anyone in between.
