(Tea Party PAC) – The world we live in right now is an absolute mess, especially in sprawling urban centers like New York City, which are under left-wing leadership and have been for long stretches of time. You can see first hand what kind of impact failed progressive policies will have on our entire nation by taking a glimpse at de Blasio’s city.
A great case in point is a new video that is spreading like wildfire on the Internet that shows the moment a man was shot dead in the streets of New York while walking with his six-year-old daughter. This garbage is being allowed to go on because resources are being sucked away from police officers and law enforcement departments to appease the miscreants in the Black Lives Matter movement.
Folks, this kind of scene will become extremely common place if cops are defunded and fewer officers are able to patrol the streets. Is this what we want for the future of America?
Here’s more from Breitbart:
Video has emerged showing a father get shot dead while walking his six-year-old daughter across the street in the Bronx just before 6 p.m. Sunday.
The video, released by NYPD Chief of Detectives Rodney Harrison, shows the father and daughter walking hand-in-hand when a car pulls up and arm extends out the passenger’s window, gun in hand.
WARNING: GRAPHIC VIOLENCE

The father then collapses to the ground, indicating that he has been shot. The six-year-old daughter can be seen running for her life after he father goes down.
On July 6, NBC News investigative reporter Tom Winter noted that “[there has] been a 204% increase in…[NYC] shooting victims over the past 28 days compared to last year.” with 717 shooting victims on the year.
Can you imagine the horror of that poor little girl who just witnessed her daddy shot to death right in front of her? These animals, and yes, criminals like this, regardless of their skin color, are animals, didn’t even care to kill this dude right in front of his kid. That tells you the kind of evil, wicked people who are out there on the streets, who will be given free reign to carry out their heinous deeds with little to no fear if police are defunded or abolished.
On June 29, 2020, Breitbart News reported that more than 110 people had been shot in NYC over the course of nine days. The 110-plus victims were wounded or killed in 83 different shootings that occurred during that nine-day period, 1010WINS reported.
The real question is why in the world Mayor de Blasio isn’t more concerned with getting his chaotic city under control and bringing down the murder rate so people can live in peace? Probably because he’s more worried about appeasing the progressive overlords at the top of the Democratic Party than he is in helping the citizens who live terrified of shooters like this every day.
Instead of doing his job to make the streets safer, he’d rather give in to bratty protesters in order to look good for the Democrats and help his party out for November. Politics can be massively disgusting at times. This is one of those moments right here, frozen in time, for all to see.
