New York City is on a freefall back into being a crime mecca. Thanks to a number of legal reforms made, like a ban on cash bail, and an admonishment of police by democrats which has led to a lawlessness.
The city saw a 177% increase in gang shootings in July, 2020, compared to July, 2019.
The Mayor, Bill Deblasio, tried to give a speech in Brooklyn asking gang members to stop killing eachother after a 1 year old was shot and killed during a shootout. In response, just a few blocks away, a 23 year old was shot and killed.
