While the leftists camp at City Hall waiving communist symbols and Mayor De Blasio lobbies to gut the city's police budget, people are being shot in broad daylight in the Big Apple.
I'd like to tell you that this was an isolated that still clearly painted the picture that we need police on the streets.
But then I'd be uninformed...or lying.
Just a quick scroll through Chief Harrison's twitter feed will tell you that there is a major problem going on in NYC.
Just google "NYC Shooting" for godssake:
From local ABC7 in New York:
It was a weekend plagued by gun violence across New York City as the surge in shootings continues, with 11 people killed in two days and 30 shootings with 10 homicides on Sunday alone.
Police say 48 people were victimized in those 30 shootings, including a terrifying caught-on-camera murder in which a man walking with his 6-year-old daughter was gunned down on the street in broad daylight.
Anthony Robinson, 29, was walking with his daughter on East 170th Street in the Bronx just before 6 p.m. when a car pulled up and a gunman opened fire out the window. The video shows the girl running for cover as Robinson falls to the ground.

Authorities say Robinson, who reportedly has many prior arrests, was pronounced dead at BronxCare Health System. The child was not physically harmed.
Mayor Bill de Blasio said Monday that he believes the most central issue for the violence is that the New York City court system has not been functioning due as normal due to the COVID-19 pandemic, though police also placed the blame on gang violence, bail reform, district attorneys, and Rikers releases due to the coronavirus."
Really De Blasio? It's somehow the virus' fault?
This is the "new normal" we keep hearing about.
Entire states are being herded into their homes while the politicians give lip service to communist agendas and let murderers roam the streets.
Next time you see De Blasio on TV, don't forget who he's fighting for.
