Ex-NYPD detective on sharp uptick in violent crime: 'A law that isn't enforced is not a law'

Die coronavirus in combination with other issues is leading the crime optel in major cities across America, retired New York Police Department detective Pat Brosnan said on Monday.

“A law that is not enforced is not a law and until that changes, until that equation changes, and crime becomes illegal, we will see skyrocketing gun violence straight across all of our major cities,” Brosnan toldAmerica's Newsroom.”

Brosnan suggested that the coronavirus is not the only factor in the spike in crime.

“It’s a convenient narrative to lay the blame on the doorstep of COVID, granted, COVID is a contributing factor, there is no doubt about it,” Brosnan said. “Maar, riots for fun and profit, a desecrated police department in both morale and operationally, and a completely destructed and destructed rule of law relative to the adherence to it are the main drivers herethey’re the catalyst. COVID is just a first cousin that was a cause and effect.

Van metro-aanvalle tot skietery, geweldsmisdaad toeneem New York Stad — 'n verrassende ommekeer na jare van rekorddalings.

Op Donderdag, 'n 40-jarige vrou is op die metro-spore in die Union Square-stasie in Manhattan gestoot net voordat 'n trein ingetrek het. Sy val tussen die relings en 'n rybed neer, polisie gesê, ontsnap met ligte beserings. 'N Verdagte is onmiddellik in hegtenis geneem.

Ure vroeër Woensdagaand, 'n man is op die spore van die 42nd Street-Bryant Park-stasie deur 'n panhandler gestoot nadat hy geweier het om geld aan hom te gee, owerhede gesê. Die slagoffer kon terugkom op die platform en is nie ernstig beseer nie. 'N Verdagte is in hegtenis geneem.

Burgemeester Bill de Blasio het die jongste misdaadskuld deels toegeskryf aan die sluiting van sake en skole wat verband hou met die koronavirus-pandemie.

'Baie dinge waarop ons afhanklik is om mense veilig en stabiel te hou, was nie daar nie,”Het hy Dinsdag gesê.

Die toename in geweld het aanleiding gegee tot die vrees dat die stad na donkerder tye kan terugkeer, dekades gelede, toe inwoners gevrees het vir hul veiligheid te midde van 'n kraakepidemie. Die nuwe misdaadgolf kom as die stad ook worstel met 'n wankelende ekonomie en druk om polisiehervormings in werking te stel wat deur voorstanders van rasse-geregtigheid voorgestaan ​​word.

Stadwyd, skietery het byna verdubbel — van 698 verlede jaar tot 1,359 hierdie jaar vanaf Nov.. 15, volgens NYPD-syfers.

Skietslagoffers het meer as verdubbel, van 828 gedurende die hele 2019 aan 1,667 hierdie jaar tot Nov.. 15. Daar was 405 moordslagoffers tot dusver vanjaar, in vergelyking met 295 laas jaar.

Die NYPD wou nie vrae beantwoord deur Fox News of 'n verteenwoordiger vir 'n onderhoud gee nie.

Om geweergeweld te help bekamp, die NYPD het sy eenheid vir hawelose uitreike en skuilings uitgeskakel — die span was toegewyd aan die ondersteuning van hawelose New Yorkers — gedurende die somer en het die offisiere weer toegewys.

Brosnan said that there is a “diminishment and demeaning of the police morale.”

“The reality is a brand new term has come to light, it is called de-arresting, where someone is lawfully placed under arrest for probable cause and then they are de-arrested because police commanders, under pressure from politicians, under pressure from the media, are saying certain crimes are no longer illegal so people get a free pass. So, how does that affect it at all?

“We have commercial burglaries up in New York City–42%. Car thefts 66%. A lot of this is directly related to the COVID, reg, there is a lot more homeless, a lot more emotionally disturbed folks, maar, the reality is this free-for-all sense that there is no sanction, there is no penalty, it is all carrot and no stick.
