Less Stop and Frisk, More Shootings

Stop and frisk is down 90% and shootings are up sharply more than 10%. as reported by the New York Post:

A spate of nine bloody shootings broke out across the city Saturday, the same day Al Sharpton and thousands gathered at an anti-cop rally on Staten Island — in which protesters bashed “Broken Windows” and stop-and-frisk policing.

The gunfire erupted at a cafe in Manhattan, and in separate incidents in Brooklyn, Queens and The Bronx — most between 12:50 and 3:50 a.m. — continuing a disturbing uptick in gunplay.

Citywide, shootings are up to 824 this year, compared to 736 last year — a nearly 12 percent increase, the latest NYPD data reveal. At the same time, the use of stop-and-frisk has plunged 92 percent, according to the most recent data available.

But protesters at the anti-cop rally bashed the NYPD’s crime-prevention strategies. “Broken Windows Kills,” proclaimed one protester’s sign.

Hardworking cops managed to take a gun and multiple criminals off the streets — the same day protesters blasted New York’s Finest as brutal and corrupt.
