Police increases presence near Manhattan schools in wake of 3 recent shootings
There will be an increased police presence near Manhattan schools Wednesday, after three shootings happened near schools on Tuesday.
Bail should be for non-violent offenders. Armed robbery is not non-violent.
So interesting that I tried to share this story and it was delegated to the pending queue with no explanation.
Y’all know wat they gonna say. Most nypd school safety were of women of color. removing them from their post means they lose their jobs. A lot of well meaning ppl want to remove cops from school safety but unless u went to nyc public schools, you won’t understand that some are truly the trenches, and police presence is necessary.
Hence why they don’t want this posted. Most mods I assume aren’t from nyc.
"I just want to commend the community members of the Upper West Side. Their quick diligence for calling 911, and the observations they made. These actions by this community up here allowed our precinct officers from the 20 precinct to quickly apprehend who we believe to be the shooter, firearm recovered, and no further incidents," said NYPD Chief of Patrol John Chell.
A motive in the shootings still hasn't been determined, but investigators for now believe they're gang-related.
Anyone with any information is asked to call the NYPD's Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477), or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782). You can also submit a tip via their website or via DM on Twitter, u/NYPDTips. All calls are kept confidential.
