    Safe Streets Ahead? Judicial rulings and anti-cop activists threaten the city’s triumph over crime. Heather Mac Donald Special Issue 2013 Public safety New York As the 1990s came to a close, the criminology profession declared that New York’s recent crime free fall was over. Homicides had declined a remarkable 72 percent over the previous decade, but that trend couldn’t possibly continue, the academy opined. “It is probable that another crime wave will engulf the City in the near future,” warned Andrew Karmen, a sociologist at John Jay College of Criminal Justice, in 2000. Karmen and his colleagues were right about...

    Speaking after multiple bombs either exploded or were found in the New York and New Jersey area, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio says authorities are seeking Ahmad Khan Rahami, 28. Both the FBI and NYPD want to question Rahami about Saturday night's explosion on West 23rd Street in Manhattan. Rahami "should be considered armed and dangerous," according to the FBI. "The important thing is to get this individual quickly and to continue to be strong and vigilant," de Blasio said via Twitter. He urged anyone with knowledge about the case to call 1-800-577-TIPS. Saturday night's blast wounded 29...

Cops and numerous federal agents were trolling through all available evidence — including a scrap of paper found in the second device, a pressure cooker filled with explosives and wired to a cell phone.

Bratton’s resignation will take effect in mid-September, sources said. Bratton has repeatedly said he would not serve past the end of Mayor Bill de Blasio’s current term, which ends next year, and he recently endorsed O’Neill as his preferred successor. O’Neill was promoted to chief of department in late 2014 to replace Philip Banks, who unexpectedly quit rather than be promoted to first deputy commissioner.

    A corruption probe at the New York Police Department has cast a harsh light on how people get handgun permits in a city that boasts some of the nation’s toughest gun laws. Federal prosecutors say a shady fixer’s cash bribes induced officers working in NYPD’s licensing division to rubber-stamp dozens of gun applications, circumventing stringent background checks intended to weed out candidates with criminal records, mental health problems and other red flags. The potential public safety breach comes amid a national debate over whether easy access to weapons fueled the Orlando massacre and other mass shootings. …

Why would President Obama's onetime top lawman come out against regulation that is supposed to protect the riding public? Credit the intersection of two forces. First, Holder's tony corporate law firm, Covington & Burling, represents Uber. Also, as Holder sees it, requiring drivers to submit fingerprints may "have a discriminatory impact on communities of color."

    ALBANY — The head investigator for the state Board of Elections probed the 2014 fundraising efforts by Mayor de Blasio and his team on behalf of the Senate Democrats and found enough “willful and flagrant” violations to warrant a criminal referral to the Manhattan DA’s office. The Daily News obtained a bombshell memo state Board of Elections Chief Enforcement Officer Risa Sugarman sent to the board’s four commissioners on Jan. 4 recommending the referral. “I have determined that reasonable cause exists to believe a violation warranting criminal prosecution has taken place,” Sugarman wrote. “The violations discovered by this investigation can...

    In the 1960s and 70s a war against cops began. It sprung up in prisons and on street corners of the worst neighborhoods in America. It was nurtured and strengthened in our prisons, mostly by Black and Hispanic men sitting around the yards of places like Sing Sing, Joliet, Chino and Walpole. The streets were so dangerous that by the early 1970s the New York City Police Department, my Department, was losing 10 cops killed by savage attacks each year. That worked out to 20 dead cops in a 24 month period; one dead cop every six weeks. As a...

    The bad news has been snowballing for Bill de Blasio, what with the emergence of a federal probe involving, among other things, top cops in Brooklyn accepting diamonds, trips and more from two big donors to various appendages of his political operation and what’s now four separate investigations into a city-aided flip, again involving a wired backer of the mayor, of a Lower East Side nursing home for AIDS patients into luxury condos. I wrote last Sunday that “after this week, I’m losing faith that de Blasio’s horse trading is paying off for the city.” And it appears I’m not...

    It was good that we did it. There was a mixup regarding meeting place that caused us to have fewer people than we should have had at five-thirty, but we eventually ended up with a bunch of stalwarts who were still there bringing people in from the sidewalk and yelling to drivers when I left at a quarter to eight. We followed the old freeper rule that a few protesters, or even one protester, is better than no one at all. One of the people in a video I watched last night said, "There are actually some pro-Trump people here."...

    : In Brooklyn, a coalition of protesters, including union, Black Lives Matter, and New York communist party activists, has put up a barricade in front of a McDonald’s, although it remains open. A march started at Brooklyn’s Supreme Court, complete with a marching band and dancers. The protesters told Breitbart News that they were the same people out at 5 AM this morning, and they plan to be at Grand Central Station this evening.

    Hillary Clinton and New York Mayor Bill de Blasio sparked controversy at an event on Saturday with a racially charged joke. Clinton and de Blasio were joined onstage by Leslie Odom Jr. in costume as Aaron Burr, whom he plays in the hit Broadway musical Hamilton. Clinton thanked de Blasio for his endorsement–which many pointed out came rather late in the game–and ribbed him, “Took you long enough.” The mayor replied, “Sorry, Hillary, I was running on C.P. time.” The abbreviation refers to the stereotype of “Colored People time,” and several people in the audience could be heard gasping or...

    The Albanian Islamic Cultural Center in Tompkinsville was among several sites under surveillance in that neighborhood by the NYPD, based on a secret department report obtained by The Associated Press. (See full report below.) A tower and crescent moon are silhouetted by the sun at the Albanian Islamic Cultural Center in Tompkinsville. The NYPD targeted the Tompkinsville neighborhood within the 120th Precinct because it had seen a "high influx" of Albanian immigrants from Montenegro, Kosovo and a "small percentage" from Albania. The secret NYPD report said that "Albanian businesses" were concentrated along Victory Boulevard and included hangouts such as social...

    As Bob Dylan told us long ago, “You don’t need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows.” These days, a foul wind blows from City Hall. With subpoenas issued, investigations spreading and at least one federal grand jury at work, the question isn’t whether Bill de Blasio’s administration has a corruption problem. The questions are how big is the problem, how many agencies are tainted and how high up the pecking order does it go? […] The two biggest and most recent scandals involve lucrative gifts and cash given to current and former top officers in the NYPD,...

    Four senior New York City police officials have been transferred amid a corruption probe into whether officers took free trips, meals and other perks, and Commissioner William Bratton said Thursday police and federal investigators will “follow the leads wherever they take us.” “The public has an expectation of a high degree of trust and integrity in its police department,” he said. “This is not a particularly good day for the department.” The corruption investigation by the NYPD’s Internal Affairs Bureau began in 2013, Bratton said in a statement. In early 2014 the FBI and Department of Justice became involved in...
