From the New York Post:

NYC has had more shootings so far this year than in all of 2019

By Joe Marino, Craig McCarthy, Sara Dorn and Aaron Feis

August 2, 2020 | 12:58am | Updated

There have been more shootings so far this year in New York City than in all of 2019.

A 24-year-old man who walked bleeding into Lincoln Hospital in The Bronx on Saturday night has pushed the city’s total number of shootings this year to 777 — topping the 776 recorded in all of last year, NYPD data compiled by The Post reveals.

And it’s only the first days of August, with five more months before the year is over.

The year’s plague of gunplay has touched every borough, killing or injuring 942 victims and cutting down not just hardened gang members but innocent children.

I get the impression that New York City and Chicago have slightly different topline ways of counting shootings, with Chicago emphasizing how many individuals have been hit by bullets, and NYC emphasizing how many incidents there have been in which one or person was hit.

But, in any case, both New York City and Chicago saw gigantic increases over 2019 in blacks shooting blacks during the current Black Lives Matter era.

Funny how that works …

  1. This wouldn’t happen if we didn’t have guns

    It is like AOC says the 2nd amendment is applied racism and needs to be the evspmex revamped

    She said s the future she is popular

    BLM and s here to say and will we n

  2. King Cuomo’s ultra-drastic gun control regime only affects white people who have jobs, homes, mortgages, and pay taxes, yet are forbidden to defend themselves and the property they have worked for.

    If they have guns to defend themselves, the government will throw them in prison. If they don’t, the Orcs are free to rob and attack them with impunity.

    It’s lose-lose for the wypipo who do actual work and keep New York from collapsing into a Third World cesspool…

    Nonsense. You can keep rifles and shotguns in the home for protection. The rise in crime in NYC is the same reason as every city this year. Police feel unappreciated and the ultra liberal views of some of the mayors. NYC enjoyed a 20 year run of dropping crime even with the harsh gun laws. Why? Police tactics and technology. Now the ultra liberals got in because everyone forgot how crime used to be and told the police to ease up. Has nothing to do without being able to conceal carry. Last decade you were more likely to be a victim of violent crime in legal gun toting southern states - than in NYC.

  3. Black Lives Matter has killed more black people than have white police officers in 2019.

  4. Start blast in’ the lead, I’m arming today
    I want to be a part of it
    New York, New York

    These multi- round mags, are longing to spray
    Right through the heart of it
    New York, New York

    And….

    If I can murder there
    I’m not gonna murder just anywhere
    It’s up to you
    New York, New York
    New York!

  5. Never stop your enemy from destroying themselves.

  6. Wonder how many of these were recorded as COVID-19 deaths?

  7. De Blasio celebrates unprecedentedly low levels of incarceration while crime skyrockets. It is a question of different values and metrics. Giuliani and Bloomberg valued lower crime, De Blasio puts precedence on lower rates of incarceration.

    Democrats tolerate more shootings and murder so long as their main policy goal of less incarceration is achieved. The System is in a sense working. It is a question of different priorities. The argument can be made that the Black community is better off with higher rates of crime, but lower rates of incarceration.

    De Blasio announced this week that there will be no 9/11 Memorial Commemoration this September because of the Corona Virus. The only permitted public gatherings are those in support of Black Lives Matter. There is no way that this is constitutional.

    We are truly in a New Era.

    I get how the black criminal is better off not being incarcerated, and I get how members of his family may be better off with him not being incarcerated if the proceeds of his crimes help support them, but how is the black community as a whole better off with more crime, most of which is committed within that community?

    Seems like NYC's recent history is just a version of the famous Hard Times / Strong Men quote.

    New York was turned into something like an Urban Paradise for almost 15 years. Certain people will always perceive an opportunity in something like that.

    (Yeah, I know it wasn't an urban paradise in comparison with various European cities over the past few centuries, but in comparison with most Legacy US cities over the past several decades.)

  8. Black NY Times staff and their allies must not be endangered by this. Only Tom Cotton op-eds, you see.

    Crime is an internal problem, while the police are seen as an outsider force of oppression. Crime in certain neighborhoods is like the weather, it just happens.

    Policing is intentional and imposed by The Other, while crime is viewed as just a part of life.

    I really think this is how crime will be viewed in the coming decade. We are going back to 1980's style crime rates without the anti-crime culture that eventually pushed back against the problem.

    I predicted this all in the tough on crime 90s. I actually raised my fist at the people from 20+ years in the future for being soft on crime. How did I know? I didn't see something like black lives matter but what I noticed was only old people wanted us to be tough on crime. Young men, even non- criminals, were starting to look like criminals with all their tattoos. I knew they would start sympathizing with them. Young women were sexually attracted to violent criminals, I knew some who had prison boyfriends. I couldn't imagine the tough on crime trend remaining and unfortunately I was correct.

    In his 2012 article, published in the Journal of Peace Research, he analyzed political violence, including riots, lynchings and terrorism, in the United States between 1780 and 2010. He found two patterns: First, a long trend of peace followed by rising violence that seems to span about 200 or 300 years, marked in this case by relative peace in the early 1800s, major upheaval in the mid- to late-1800s, and then peace again in the mid-1900s. Superimposed upon this long-term curve were oscillations that seemed to repeat approximately every 50 years. Violence peaked around 1870, 1920 and 1970. Extrapolate another 50 years and you land right smack on 2020.

    As described concisely by our own Art Deco:



    Why is it so fashionable in the black community to literally fight the police?

    Because they’ve gotten it into their head that they’re a warrior caste and police officers are getting above themselves by enforcing community standards on them. Gentry liberals assume and promote this notion.

    How many have noticed how, as part of Woke ideology/white demonization, the pathologizing of low crime rates as part of 'white privilege': that the white way of low crime rate life, is unnatural and abnormal- and, of course (derr), racist.

    I remember an article in The Guardian (yes, I know) about 'murder inequality' where the grievance was the unfair dearth of murdered whites vis a vis (their) PoC (superiors).

    While the Woke/progressive liberals will continue highlighting negro crime (levels) only as proof of 'systemic racism'/white supremacy, I think there will be more dog whistles/open calls for more whites to be murdered/made prey to violent crimes in the name of (restorative) social justice/anti-racism.

    Whether it's whites gunning down whites because one brushed past another in a shop without apologizing, or just your typical non-elite white dog-walker killed by your typical urban jogger, white blood, lots of white blood, will more and more be what is intended by criminal justice reform/defund the police in the minds, and mouths, of Dems/BLM/progressives in the bloody violent years ahead.

  18. The year’s plague of gunplay …

    Wow, two plagues in one year! Now, for this 2nd plague, Dr. Fauci does not recommend face-mask wearing (for ID purposes), so make sure when you go out you have the right gear for the right plague.

    Gunplay can last on doorknobs for 8 1/2 weeks, it can spread through the air at over 2,000 ft/s muzzle velocity, and it affects people of all ages, creeds, ethnicities and gender preferences. For some reason, minorities have been hardest hit… I mean really hit, like knocked to the pavement.

  21. Shattered by The Stones (1978) is coming back into vogue:

    Don’t you know the crime rate is going up, up, up, up, up
    To live in this town you must be tough, tough, tough, tough, tough!
    You got rats on the West Side
    Bed bugs uptown
    What a mess this town’s in tatters, I’ve been shattered
    My brain’s been battered, splattered all over Manhattan

  22. We have heard this Stones tune a thousand times. I am only posting it because the video shows scenes of NYC in its decline in the late 70s into the Dinkins Era. What stands out is all the ugly graffiti. You want to ruin and demoralize a neighborhood? Than allow low lifes to tag it with ugly graffiti.
    This is the NYC the Talking Heads saw, and it was much gritter in their lower East Side where CGBGs was.

  23. New Yorkers are getting the government they want. Who are we to criticize? Let em have it!

  24. I spent a bit of time in lower Manhattan over the weekend. In the West Village and East Village, the restaurants that are trying to make a go of it have built little seating areas in the parking spaces in front of their establishments. The street side of the enclosures are made up of wooden planters around 3 feet high. Above that there are usually wooden trellises that go up another two or three feet.

    The overall effect reminds me of a wild animal park where the humans are fenced in and the animals run free.
