In the profiling-free, pro-SAFE Act utopia of New York City, shootings in some areas have risen over 45%, while the number of victims in other locations have practically doubled.
Via the New York Post:
Murders are way up so far this year in Manhattan, The Post has learned.
Sixteen people were killed around the borough between the first of the year and Sunday. Over the same period last year, the figure was 11. That’s an increase of about 45 percent.
Shootings in the borough have also soared.
There have been 50 “shooting incidents’’ since Jan. 1, compared with 31 in the same time period in 2014 — an increase of about 38 percent. Some of these “incidents’’ involved more than one victim.
The number of shooting victims nearly doubled, from 33 to 61.
Several factors were cited by a law enforcement official, though one reason was the drop off in “stop-and-frisk” proactive policing.
