On June 29, Breitbart News reported that more than 110 people had been shot in NYC over a nine-day period. Those victims were struck by bullets in approximately 83 different shootings.
On June 21, Breitbart News reported that shootings surged in NYC after the plainclothes anti-crime unit was disbanded.
A law enforcement source told the New York Post, “This is what the politicians wanted — no bail, nobody in Rikers, cops not arresting anyone. All those things equal people walking around on the street with guns, shooting each other.”
