Low information voters don’t miss all the news . . .

US District Court Judge Shiraz Scheindlin recently ruled that NYC’s stop-and-frisk policy, which has helped to dramatically reduce gun violence and crimes, is unconstitutional. Judge Scheindlin imposed draconian restrictions on the police and formerly “low information” voters are quite happy with the Judge:

“Thugs with guns think they’re the ones calling the shots on the streets in the wake of the anti-NYPD stop-and-frisk ruling.

“You can’t stop me! You can’t do that no more! There are new rules!” suspect Steven Sidbury, 21, allegedly yelled at officers as they approached him in crime-riddled East New York last week.”

. . . One source predicted that there will be more bloodshed in the streets as criminals fearlessly carry their weapons instead of stashing them somewhere — and fire in the heat of the moment.

“They’re going to carry their guns, and if they get into a fight, they’re going to shoot right away,’’ the source warned.

“Every single [perp] I have encountered is very happy about the ruling,’’ a Manhattan police source said.

“It is a very common thought now amongst perps that stop-question-and-frisk infringes on their rights to carry concealed guns.” 

You can be sure that Scheindlin and the pandering progressive politicians will refuse all responsibility for the coming NYC crime wave.

MSM successfully misleads citizenry about gun crime . . .

“Gun crime has plunged in the United States since its peak in the middle of the 1990s, including gun killings, assaults, robberies and other crimes, two new studies of government data show.

Yet few Americans are aware of the dramatic drop, and more than half believe gun crime has risen, according to a newly released survey by the Pew Research Center . . .

The number of gun killings dropped 39% between 1993 and 2011, the Bureau of Justice Statistics reported in a separate report released Tuesday. Gun crimes that weren’t fatal fell by 69% . . .

Despite the remarkable drop in gun crime, only 12% of Americans surveyed said gun crime had declined compared with two decades ago, according to Pew, which surveyed more than 900 adults this spring. Twenty-six percent said it had stayed the same, and 56% thought it had increased.”
