There were 242 shootings last month compared to the 91 recorded in August 2019, according to NYPD data. New York City saw 1,014 shootings to date as of Aug. 31 – an 87% spike from the 541 reported during the same period last year, police said.

And a 6 year old was among 5 wounded in a shooting in Crown Heights just this morning. De Blasio has absolutely destroyed the progress that Giuliani and Bloomberg made.

You're using a single month spurt?

It's a real shame that De Blasio is letting the city die! Zero leadership from him.
He is more worried about SJW's than protecting the citizens of New York city.

Remember this
De Blasio agrees to cut $1 billion from New York police budget.

None of that wiill matter. the NYC mayor has turned that city to **** but he will blame it all on Trump and the idiot leftists will ignore reality and nod at him adoringly. They are already doing the same thing with Cuomo's decisions that killed thousands of New York citizens. His call...his policies...but blame Trump...and the mindless retarded left will agree...uh huh! Thats right...it was TRUMPS fault.

Because they are ****ing morons.
