Liberal City Forced to Pay the Price After Woke Criminal Justice Reforms Backfire

New York City has nobody to blame for the uptick in violent crime other than progressive lawmakers that enacted woke criminal justice reforms.

Reports reveal that despite Democrats’ push to rectify the imbalance of Black Americans who are arrested, convicted, and incarcerated they have only their effort have resulted in a spike in crime, with more Black Americans victimized.

Fox News reports:

“A lot of these policies were designed explicitly around the idea that Blacks are so disproportionately represented in the people who are arrested and the people who are prosecuted and convicted and incarcerated — and trying to design criminal justice policy to back-engineer that number to be more on par with the racial demographics of everybody of society,” Hannah E. Meyers, director of the policing and public safety initiative at the Manhattan Institute, told Fox News Digital in a phone interview Monday. “That in itself has created a bigger problem.”

Meyers and Jim Quinn, a former executive district attorney in the Queens district attorney’s office, recently published an essay in the New York Times arguing that by “aiming for racial equity in criminal justice rather than focusing solely on deterring and responding to crime, policymakers seem to have neglected the foundational purpose of law and order.”

“What has followed — a sharp rise in victims of crime, who remain disproportionately Black, and a slight increase in the percentage of Rikers Island inmates who are Black — is a racial imbalance of a more troubling kind,” the authors wrote in the article.

New York City is grappling with skyrocketing crime. Murders went up 52% from 2019 to 2021, while shootings were up 104% and car theft 91%. In 2020, Black New Yorkers were victims in 65% of murders and 74% of shootings, the authors of the NYT essay wrote.

Former Mayor Bill de Blasio moved to defund the police before leaving office, a move that Meyers and Quinn’s claim has disproportionately impacted largely Black neighborhoods of NYC.

Most of us that supported the BLM in the beginning hoped for a change, but now most of us have witnessed a total regret in supporting BLM. I personally never supported defunding the law enforcement of New York, and any other city.
We might as well face it… the criminals once the police were defunded, went on a spree of murder, theft, carjackings, ETC…

BLM was never about changing anything for the better. It was about trying to blame white people for the disproportional amount of crimes blacks commit. It was also about making the BLM leaders rich on the backs of poor ignorant blacks and people like you that believed their BS. Glad you’re big enough to admit you’re a fool. Your honesty is appreciated.

” . . the idea that Blacks are so disproportionately represented in the people who are arrested . . .”. Duh, blacks disproportionately commit most of the shootings and murders!
“Black New Yorkers were victims in 65% of murders and 74% of shootings”. And, most of these are blacks on blacks. So, BLM do not matter to other blacks. Where are the black Community Organizers and real black ministers trying to focus on changing this part of the black culture?

You’re figured it out, DJ! Mass incarceration is a direct result of mass criminality. Only gliberals can’t dope that out.

Sharpton and Jackson are sitting on their asses in their mansions. They did however learn well from King on how to be philanderers and extortionists.

The problem of the disproportionate number of blacks convicted and imprisoned is due to the fact that a disproportionate number of blacks commit crimes. According to the FBI, over 50% of homicides and robberies are committed by blacks, only 13% of the population. If these reformers want racial balance, they need to reform the black community.

There’s the Black Community, which wants police protection and suffers when it isn’t provided, and the Black Community Leaders, who don’t support their own. During the Koch administration years we had our first black police commissioner, Ben Ward. At a huge meeting with the “leaders” he told them that black were responsible for something like 75% of felony arrests. The leaders accused him of being “insensitive.” Tenas now, the leaders shirked their responsibility to actually lead. What they prefer to do is show up to “lend support” when police actions result in controversy, headlines and photo ops.

New York city was a filthy roach infested area in the 70s and it’s even worse today. Unbelievably expensive, unbelievably dirty and unbelievably unsafe. A democrat’s paradise. Lawless filth. Now you have fatso Alvin Bragg, 400 pounds of sheer racist stupidity. Enjoy it New York, cause you suck.

Those who commit crimes are not the victims of the police, they are victims of their own actions. They forget that with actions come consequences.

It seems that NYC is distressed at the racial imbalance of arrests and convictions. Here’s a solution that can be acceptable to their liberal minds: If blacks are 20% of the population, just arrest and convict 5 times as many non-blacks. Since statistics prove racism, there’s no need to have any evidence of a crime on their part. Being non-black is sufficient evidence of racism to justify their arrest and conviction.

Equally responsible are the voters who elected them.

Black Americans are victimized by BLACK criminals. They brough about their own misery by enabling N’s and victimizing honest, responsible black Americans. The backlash should come from there.

Vote liberal, get liberal results. Vote and protest based on racist and Marxist BS like BLM, then don’t be surprised when criminals commit way more crime and get away with it. Simple as that.

The voters vote in what they get, and it is up to them to use their brains to get rid of what they voted into these positions where they are destroying the city you live in. First, BLM has nothing to do with helping blacks. It was formed by Obama when he pardoned a black Marxist trained activist who killed a policeman. This woman and a second Marxist trained black woman founded BLM for the purpose of tearing down the cities so they could say, oh we communists can build your cities back into commie/socialism cities. BLM sat back and waited for some white policeman to kill a black man. The Marxist revolution in the U.S. started than and the democrats said nothing as money poured into BLM and was funneled into the democratic party through ACTBLUE (the democrat party fundraising arm) on BLM’s website. No blacks in the black communities burned down by BLM received any of BLM’s millions and millions of money. Defunding the police is a technique used by communists to tear down countries infrastructure into violence so communists can than take over the policing of the country and its economy. In the U.S. democrats happily allowed Antifa and BLM to destroy this country and Biden getting elected took over our govt to help Antifa and BLM and communists/socialists in our Congress to continue handing our country over to the communism that gives money and power only to the loyal commies in govt. Tear down the economy and build it back in the version of the economy you want, capitalism against communism and capitalism always loses thanks for the voters (democrats) who can’t figure out what is going on or because it benefits them they don’t want to figure out what is going and even help these hate America types.
