deBlasio and the NYPD lie about court's role in the rise in shootings, and continue to lie about it.

They’re starting to run out of excuses.

The mayor and police have repeatedly blamed a coronavirus-related court shutdown for the explosion of gun violence rocking the city — but firearms cases are making their way through the criminal justice system at the same rate as last year, a Post investigation shows.

The revelations come after The Post showed that the NYPD’s own data did not support those claims that bail reform and early prison releases over coronavirus were driving the spike.

“It’s a combination of things — bail reform, COVID releases from prison, court shutdown, which has Rikers [Island] at half of where they were,” Chief of Department Terence Monahan said in a July 6 press briefing, seeking to explain the 70-percent rise in shootings this year. Commissioner Dermot Shea and Mayor de Blasio have also blamed court closure for the uptick, with Shea calling the tie “indisputable” on Monday.

But the data tells another story.

In December 2019, as the city officials touted a record-breaking low in shootings, there were 2,285 open gun cases in Gotham with 13 percent of suspects awaiting trial, according to an analysis by The Post.

In July 2020, with shootings skyrocketing to 1990s-like levels, the courts had 2,181 open firearms cases and 10 percent in lockup — or 104 fewer pending gun cases, the data shows.

Additionally, of the 1,957 people facing gun charges out on the streets in July — which is 27 fewer than in December — only 2 percent, or 39 people, were busted again for a firearm, according to the data obtained by The Post.

There were also more gun and murder arraignments from April to June compared to October through December last year, with 819 over the three-month period this year compared to 642 last year, court data shows.

The buck continues to stop everywhere but on Mayor Bill de Blasio’s desk.

Hizzoner once again attacked the messenger Thursday rather than address a new Post article that found firearms cases are going through the criminal justice system at the same rate as last year — refuting his claims that a coronavirus-related court shutdown is most responsible for this summer’s surge in shootings

“I have not seen The Post article and I don’t always get accuracy from that publication,” de Blasio sniffed during a virtual City Hall press briefing when asked about the damning piece by a Wall Street Journal reporter.

In December 2019, there were 2,285 open gun cases in Gotham with 13 percent of suspects awaiting trial, according to the Post analysis based on NYPD and court data. In July 2020, the courts had 2,181 open firearms cases and 10 percent in lockup — or 104 fewer pending gun cases, the data shows.

There were also more gun and murder arraignments from April to June compared to October through December last year, with 819 over the three-month period this year compared to 642 last year, court data shows.

De Blasio tried to discredit those numbers — before realizing they came from his own police department.

“Anyone can try and manipulate a statistic,” he said.

When the Journal reporter pointed out the data were NYPD statistics, de Blasio refused to back down.

“It’s a publication that historically has provided inaccurate information. It may be accurate statistics in this case, but I’m just not going to be gentle about the point that when there is a history of inaccuracy and an axe to grind it’s worth saying,” de Blasio fumed at The Post, rather than addressing the issue at hand.

“There is no one claiming the court system is functioning as normal. There’s just no one doing it,” de Blasio flailed.

Cav said...

Both sides are wrong. This is simple cherry-picked comparisons to arbitrary years and months using a simple percentage change formula taught to 5th graders by both de Blasio and the Post. These are not any meaningful stats but total garbage that does not explain or refute the given reasons for the spike in shootings.

So what are the reasons for the increase in crime? Could it be releasing criminals from jails in case they get the Wuhan coof, bail reform (that lets perps go free until trial) or cops not making arrests because if the perp resists, the cop gets arrested instead?

Of course not! That's silly to think criminals would commit crimes if released or be repeat offenders. Or notice cops not making arrests would inspire them to commit more crimes. It's all the fault of Orange Satan with his evil magical forces like systemic racism and y'know, reasons and stuff.

Or as Huffpoop claims: Orange man bad, there is no increase in crime and these aren't the droids you're looking for.

Orange Satan along with Boris and Natasha are using Russian mind control rays to make you think there is an increase in crime and that the demonstrations were violent when they totally weren't 'cause Huffpo said so.

Whatever else, don't listen to those naughty right-wing deniers who tell us the holy scriptures of progressive liberalism are disastrously wrong. If empirical evidence doesn't match what the infallible high priests of the left tell us is true, then a stubborn denial of reality will see us through.

The whole liberal world view is based off fake statistics and unrealistic world views.
It's funny how all of these separate local governments come up with the same ideas all at once. Liberalism is the public health emergency & All Lefties are absolutely obsessed with race.

“The white liberals, who have been posing as our friends, have failed us. The white liberal is the worst enemy to America and the worst enemy to the black man. White liberals are those who have perfected the art of selling themselves to the black man as our ‘friend’ to get our sympathy, our allegiance and our minds. The white liberal attempts to use us politically against white conservatives, so that anything the black man does is never for his own good, never for his advancement, never for his own progress, he’s only a pawn in the hands of the white liberal.”

@ Bored With Fascists who wrote "Shame to think so many Americans died in WWII fighting fascism..."

Fascist. Moi? Surely you jest. Fascism is a variant of collectivist socialism. Adolf Hitler was a National Socialist. Goebbels, Roehm, the whole lot of them. Left wing to the core. You can read all about it in a book. (It's OK to use your finger moving along with the words while moving your lips.) Americans died fighting collectivist-to-the-core German socialism and Japanese militarism. Died to protect freedom, individual liberty, and entrepreneurial endeavor. Stalin and Hitler - no diff.

Funny how every fascist commentator replays the same old lines from the same old playbook. Willie Guthrie "were A OK with Hitler" ? "Adolf Hitler was a National Socialist. Goebbels, Roehm, the whole lot of them. Left wing to the core" . Same old lies from the same old liars. Gorge"I Googled It somewhere"theFascist, you obviously didn't do well at school. The rest of your education probably came from too much free time watching Fascist News or reading other Murdoch propaganda. You've probably been living on welfare for a few years. Just as a FYI. Hitler and his buddies were extreme right wing fascists, similar to yourself, except with a brain. Mussolini, Franco, Pinochet are other examples of your kind (except with brains too). Yes, Communist and Fascist authoritarians are very similar. Modern day fascists would include Xi Jinping, Putin, Netanyahu, Trumpanzees etc. Unlike his followers, Trump just plays a fascist on TV. Now go back to your cave and watch Tucker or read Q.

As I see this problem, there are two central issues:

Eliminating the Street Crime Unit sent notice to the jungle that “we is now runnin da show”. Fear has a function in this realm. When certain types are not afraid of getting caught with guns and sent to prison, they go wilding.

An animal trainer will tell you “if –you-- are not in charge –the animal is”.

Another BIG problem are all these goddamn “easy gun” states. The child-minded killers on ours and other city’s streets aren’t getting their weapons from Best Buy or some bodega. They are being brought-in by the thousands from States with poor gun control laws, usually idiot red states.

Just as New York has so-far contained this version of SARS virus, you have places where idiots listen to talk radio and Donald Trump causing their infections to climb and eventually threaten us again. We now have to take extra measures to protect ourselves from terminally stupid populations where reality & science are ignored.

I have been enlightened by "George The Fascist" (GTF for short) and the usual stream of QC fascists. Thank you for all this. So, Hitler and Co. was really a left wing radicals? I guess he and Mussolini ware going to reveal this to the world sometime after the war? How about Franco and Pinochet? Did Franco forget to announce his secret left wing beliefs all those years after the war? Wow, Hitler really did put on a good act. I should have known. So GTF, this being Queens, does that mean that everyone who lives here is a Queen?
Thank you GTF and Co. As well as providing some much needed amusement, I now understand the mindset of the local right wing fascists a little better. Hey I bet if we get attacked by some Saudi Arabian terrorists, you guys will come up with a great idea to go attack a rock in Iraq for revenge. Or even better, I'm sure you will reveal to the world that Covid-19 was incubated in Hilary Clinton's pocket book, and released just to get revenge on Trump. Or better yet, that Covid-19 is just fake news and all those dead people don't come close to all the people Hilary killed in Benghazi. But you'd be too smart for that wouldn't you?

Irony of the day: Today, August 6, 2020 on Google there is a story reported by Jennifer Smith (of about how Sonny CUOMIGULA is now 'begging' city residents to return to Manhattan.

THIS from a criminally insane sociopath who bankrupted New York State LONG before the Coronavirus, and who robbed The TAPPAN ZEE Bridge of its historic, Dutch namesake to pay a disgraceful homage to his equally crooked-and-corrupt father, Mario. Hey, Sonny, it will ALWAYS be THE TAPPAN ZEE, you ungrateful ape, and why you aren't rotting in a putrid jail cell with ALL of your 'OTHER' New York State payroll pals, all of whom are already in the slammer - EXCEPT YOU - is one of those greatest, unsolved mysteries.

Face it, New York State residents, ugly government troglodytes like CUOMIGULA have raped, ravaged and tonsured New York State so completely, that it would take two public hangings for him to pay for his crimes against humanity (the second one after he reincarnates for the sold purpose of another public execution).

What delicious irony that this voracious, predatory and rapacious, tone deaf thief too every subversive action to murder my once great, third generation born and raised state, and now he is looking for help - ironically from the SAME people whom he left to rot, EN MASS, in obscurity.

Go hug a landmine, Cuomosexual - and, take your criminally insane brother and family with you!

By golly George, I think you have proven beyond doubt that Hitler was indeed a communist. Eating from a big pot with Stalin. Who would have thought. This is a true revelation. So he wasn't a fascist at all then? You may have uncovered something more important than the Obamacare Death panels, or Hilary's pizza parlor pedophile ring. I followed on your great leadership and uncovered more communists here, having a collectivist meet up. Communists I

Can you believe it? Winston Churchill, the hero of WWII was actually a communist. I'm sure your not surprised at Roosevelt, after all he was a liberal, which goes against your fascist nature.
Upon more digging, the conspiracy got bigger. I was shocked to find that Ronald Reagan, the union destroyer, was a closet communist too. Look here, I GOOGLED it.
Communists II I guess destroying unions was smoke and mirrors to make people believe he hated socialism.
