It’s no secret that new New York City Mayor Bill De Blasio (born Warren Wilhelm Jr.) is a far-left moonbat and he brings along his moonbattery beliefs to NYC government.
He’s rolling back successful policing practices that have brought down violent crime in past years in The Big Apple, as the city nibbled around the edges, ignoring the obvious and proven way to substantially lower crime rates (eliminating the Sullivan Act and a host of other anti-gun laws in that city, and allowing residents there to carry firearms for personal defense).
Crime is down during De Blasio’s first few weeks in office.
And guess who is claiming credit?
Warren Wilhelm Junior is.
(New York Times) – Mayor Bill de Blasio, who frequently criticized the Police Department in his previous job as public advocate, highlighted statistics on Tuesday showing a drop in crime during his first two months in office, saying that his approach to policing had already paid dividends.
Over all, crime in New York City has fallen 2 percent in the first 10 weeks of this year, compared with the same period in 2013, according to the mayor and William J. Bratton, the police commissioner. Murders fell by 21 percent and shootings dropped by 14 percent, the mayor said.
Could it be the near-record cold temperatures, heavy snows and generally lousy weather that have led to a reduction in crime? Nah. It’s Bill, er, Warren Wilhelm’s approach to policing!
Next thing you know, this moonbat will be claiming credit for the sun rising in the east.
We’ll see if he claims credit for a surge in violent crime when the weather warms up – and see if that is also a result of his approach to non-policing.
