New York Shootings Up 13% After Liberal Judge’s Stop and Frisk Ban

New York City as it was in the 80s will be back, complete with Chicago size crime rates, subway trains covered in graffiti and more rapes than bad plays.
The recent ruling to reform the New York Police Department’s controversial ‘stop-and-frisk’ tactic has already led to a sharp rise in shootings, new figures reveal.
In the month after the policy was ruled unconstitutional shootings spiked nearly 13 per cent while gun seizures fell almost a fifth, the figures show.
In the 28 days up to September 8 there were 140 shootings across the city, compared with 124 over the same period last year, according to NYPD statistics.
The shocking rise in gun crime has emerged days after the federal judge who ordered an overhaul of the stop-and-frisk strategy refused to delay it pending an appeal by the city.
U.S. District Judge Shira Scheindlin said such a delay would send ‘precisely the wrong signal.’
The signal being that she cares more about people than about her liberal agenda. Scheindlin is a Clinton appointee so you know which way that ball is going to come up.
Scheindlin, like most liberals, doesn’t care about the black people she claims to want to protect.
The murder of Antiq Henis, a 1 year old boy shot in his stroller in Brownsville, Brooklyn, by an assailant in a likely act of gang violence targeting his father is exactly the kind of crime that Stop and Frisk was meant to prevent.
In 2010, the New York Times described 52,000 police Stop and Frisk stops being made in Brownsville.
Antiq Hennis was shot at Livonia Avenue and Bristol Street in in the Marcus Garvey Village project. Unfortunately by then, Stop and Frisk had already been eliminated by Judge Shira Scheindlin, better known as Judge Judy’s daughter, a liberal judge appointed by Bill Clinton.
