Officials in multiple cities making moves to placate Black Lives Matter are making moves that will actually endanger more lives, including black lives and the lives of police officers in a variety of different ways. Indeed, we’re already beginning to see some of the harmful effects in NYC.
Officials acceded to the leftist push to do away with the anticrime unit. That was the plainclothes division which was very effective, proactively dealing with gang and drug crime, much of which is where the violence and shooting crimes come from. 600 officers who dealt with that up until June just had all their positions eliminated and were transferred out to other positions.
OUT OF CONTROL NYC VIOLENCE: There were around 35 shootings between the 4th of July and 7:00PM Sunday, injuring more than 45 people, according to the NYPD. Shootings exploded in NYC days after @NYCMayor disbanded all NYPD anti-crime cops. #AbolishPolice
