Thanks, de Blasio: Crime Wave Sweeps NYC Following Execution of Two Cops

Posted by on Dec 30, 2014 at 8:34 am

Didn’t take long for the city to go to shit. Just now a year after his inaugural Bill de Blasio’s tenure as mayor is pretty much finished. He just doesn’t know it yet.

It’s not a slowdown — it’s a virtual work stoppage.

NYPD traffic tickets and summonses for minor offenses have dropped off by a staggering 94 percent following the execution of two cops — as officers feel betrayed by the mayor and fear for their safety, The Post has learned.

The dramatic drop comes as Police Commissioner Bill Bratton and Mayor de Blasio plan to hold an emergency summit on Tuesday with the heads of the five police unions to try to close the widening rift between cops and the administration.

The unprecedented meeting is being held at the new Police Academy in Queens at 2 p.m., sources said.

Angry union leaders have ordered drastic measures for their members since the Dec. 20 assassination of two NYPD cops in a patrol car, including that two units respond to every call.

It has helped contribute to a nose dive in low-level policing, with overall arrests down 66 percent for the week starting Dec. 22 compared with the same time period in 2013, stats show.

Citations for traffic violations fell by 94 percent, from 10,069 to 587, during that time frame.

Summonses for low-level offenses like public drinking and urination also plunged 94 percent — from 4,831 to 300.

Even parking violations are way down, dropping by 92 percent, from 14,699 to 1,241.

Drug arrests by cops assigned to the NYPD’s Organized Crime Control Bureau — which are part of the overall number — dropped by 84 percent, from 382 to 63.

You can be sure the criminals know this. Speaking of criminals, we haven’t heard from Al Sharpton lately. Must have fled back to his estate in New Jersey.

    How old is Kurt Russell?

    Is he too old to be Snake Plissken again?

    G-d knows, NYC needs him.

    This is great news.I am positive the lefty news sources will say that His Honor actually brought down the crime rate single handedly.Alas he will still get in trouble for banning their unicorn rides in central park.

    DeBlahBlahO couldn’t care less about the policing implications of this…but he’ll care BIG TIME about all that lost revenue. That and that alone will drive him to do something about this asap.

    Please strike “execution” in the headline, and replace it with “assassination”, or simply “murder”. “Execution” carries the connotation of a justified killing, after due process, which is why the leftard press always uses it. Don’t fall into the trap of letting the leftards control the language that we use.

    Simply put, this was a murder. Murder most foul, indeed. And “assassination” also works, because these individuals were murdered simply because of the uniform they wore.

    I expect an article, fairly quickly, saying that the drop in arrests is due to a drop in crime because a smarter administration means smarter policing. God’s in His heaven and all is right with the world.
    Maybe The Rolling Stone will publish it.

    So the police decide they can abandon their sworn duties because the mayor said something they didn’t like? Di Blasio is a putz, but that’s no excuse for the police to let crime run rampant just because their feelz are hurt.

    Where is Calvin Coolidge when you need him?

    Lorenzo:

    I fully expect YOU to don the NYPD Blue and get out there to save the city from criminals. If not, you should probably shut up.

    I don’t know what occupation you currently have, if any, but if you went to work worrying you might be targeted for assassination for simply doing your job, I could understand if you suddenly lost your motivation to go to work. I doubt there is any job, other than military service, where you would fully expect each day you work could be your last due to being murdered, sorry, assassinated.

    People who choose to become police officers do not do so because of the awesome perks, benefits and pension. They do it out of a strong sense of civic duty and respect for law and order. They certainly didn’t sign up to be slaughtered like lambs as they keep watch over your and their family’s well-being.

    There may well be a few bad eggs in the various police dept. around the country; any large organization suffers from that same problem. Few occupations put your life in jeopardy on a daily basis like being a LEO. From a simple traffic stop to responding to a bank robbery…. what other job puts your very existence on this earth in this kind of danger?

    Lorenzo: Put up, or shut up.
