Wasn't it just the beginning of June when the Black Lives Matter activists started calling for the defunding and abolition of the police?
That's what I seem to remember, but suddenly, they seem to have changed their minds.
NYPD took their call to heart at least partially and eliminated their anti-crime unit, now for some reason, they want it back. Hmm...I wonder why?
After another tragic weekend of gun violence, including the death of a 1-year-old, two members of the Black community called on the NYPD to bring back the recently disbanded Anti-Crime Unit to help get guns off the street.
CBS2 political reporter Marcia Kramer has more on the story.
It was a dramatic moment — Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams holding up a pair of baby shoes Monday after a 1-year-old became the latest victim of gun violence, caught in the crossfire at a family barbecue just hours before.
“Babies are not supposed to be wearing these in a coffin,” Adams said.
Adams, a former cop, became the second member of the African-American community to call on the NYPD to stop the violence by re-instituting the Anti-Crime Unit — undercover cops whose job was to get guns off the street. The unit was disbanded during the anti-cop protest that shook the city.
“I think that a total elimination is something we need to reevaluate,” said Adams. “Right now, bad guys are saying if you don’t see a blue and white you can do whatever you want.”
Community activist Tony Herbert agrees.
“The guns keep going off and now we have a 1-year-old and the blood is on the hands of the mayor and the state Legislature,” said Herbert.
I can tell you what the biggest problem is with New York City, the NYPD, and police brutality. It's Mayor Bill de Blasio. This man is about as worthless of a leader as there ever was.
Now, I'm not a fan of Michael Bloomberg by any stretch of the imagination, but I'd rather have him as a mayor than de Blasio. The only thing that's happened as a result of de Blasio's elimination of the anti-crime unit is a 200% increase of shootings.
New York cannot succeed until they get rid of DeBlasio.
He had to go.

Worst Mayor ever Bill De Blasio in the dumbest decision ever shut down the NYPD's anti-crime unit - since then shootings up 205%. He's painting Black Live Matter on streets while allowing people to get shot. Notice Cuomo does nothing to help: https://t.co/6i7tholG8r

You'll Never Guess What the Left Is Labeling As 'Systemically Racist'
What we really need right now in the United States - among other things - is for people to stop being snowflakes and stop being offended by everything in existence.
It has become a joke and I truly hope that eventually, people will quit taking this crap seriously because the left wants to claim that everything is racist...except when people are racist against white people.
