11 people shot in 12 hours.

The new normal for NYC.

I guess that strict gun control is really working out well for New Yorkers.

Hey, If data appears factual I'm all for it. A published number of homicides or shootings by a government agency, if that's what these are, I will accept as reliable.

That said, I will view anything from ZeroHedge and their writer fake-named "Tyler Durden" ----- (from the character in Fight Club) ---- author (Bulgarian) with a healthy level of suspicion.

Like many things from The Right, there appears to be a Russian connection with ZeroHedge. Out of 195 nations on Earth there seems to be a HIGHLY disproportionate amount of Russia in our politics & media.

And Russia's GDP / Economic footprint is a weak #11, one rung lower than Canada at #10.

Again, I'm not calling this out as Fake News, I think these homicide/shooting numbers are correct.

But DO note that a surprising number of conservative news sources that I have seen linked to posts here are of Russian origin, or formally Soviet states.

One "conservative news" site, referenced here, was officially registered as a Foreign Agent with the State Department.

But my inclination is to take this thing at face value for a number of reasons. No doubt things will become clearer going forward. My point is that if the Democrats latch on to this defund the police initiative, if you choose to call it that. It will come back to bite them in the backside.

A certain well-known Chicago website may have an expansion opportunity in NYC.

USMM guy ------------ I totally agree. I feel that most police departments are under-funded already. And that further eroding their resources & staffing will be a disaster.

Yes, I've heard the argument that funds should be shifted more towards prevention than enforcement. And I dismiss it.

Because I don't agree that crime prevention programs have be paid for at the expense of the enforcement side.

Don't reduce the effectiveness of our police to fund social projects. Yes, even projects that may be highly beneficial in the long run.

The street cops are needed to fight the crimes that are occurring RIGHT NOW.

My only beef was with ZeroHedge & their shady fake-name boss of dubious origins.

As for the police, I'm totally Pro-LE. Keep them fully funded.

Well, he did sign the bills that made all this happen. He's probably not to anxious to own up to it. Too bad he dropped out of the presidential race. The longer he's away, the less damage he can do.

This past weekend (6-27-20) there was an ENORMOUS pro police (peaceful, go figure) demonstration in my City. It made me proud of fellow Americans who buck idiocy to see it.
