Defunding of New York Anti-Crime Unit lead to a crime spike with dozens of victims including a 1-year-old child
Obviously, the disbandment of key police departments was an extremely unfortunate undertaking. Now, a series of black voices plead with the NYPD to bring officers back to the streets because an uncontrolled wave of violence has swept the city.
The recent death of a one-year-old child drew attention to the fact that the lack of a counterweight in the form of police to street gangs leads to more terrifying consequences.
Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams has called on black society to rethink the lack of police on the streets of New York.
“I think that a total elimination is something we need to reevaluate,” Adams said, CBS New York. “Right now, bad guys are saying if you don’t see a blue and white you can do whatever you want.”
Previously, more than 600 officers were transferred to other departments or dismissed under pressure from activists.
Despite the fact that the Black Lives Matter was those who born the demand of "defund the police", some activists are inclined to blame the mayor of the city, who obeyed the BLM.
“The guns keep going off and now we have a 1-year-old and the blood is on the hands of the mayor and the state Legislature,” Tony Herbert, an activist in New York’s black community said.
To understand why the police are needed, innocent people must suffer and die. The recent bloody assault on elderly metro passengers has stirred up the public, but not advocates of the all-consuming BLM movement.
71 and 73-year-old white passengers became the victims of one radical black criminal who stabbed them with a knife. He later was arrested but not any major media has covered this incident.

The suspect later was identified as 46-year-old Patrick Chambers.
