At least 500 people have been shot in the city since the start of 2020, a 42 percent uptick from the same period of 2019. From Sunday through Saturday last week there were 59 shootings, while the same week in 2019 saw 26 shootings.
“We haven’t seen this since 1996, and there are a lot of reasons for it,” NYPD chief of department Terence Monahan said on Sunday. Monahan stated that a combination of factors had led to the uptick, including bail reform policies that have led to the release of indicted suspects as well as George Floyd demonstrations against the police.
well at least he mentions bail reform.. I mean what did they think was going to happen when they put a revolving door on the jail.
Need to send in some more social workers to de-escalate things. (Can't imagine any social worker that would actually want that job)
