The victim has been identified as 29-year-old Anthony Robinson. He was shot in the chest while walking down a street in the Bronx by a killer who was driving a dark sedan. His six-year-old daughter was not harmed physically by the ambush. Robinson was one of eight people who were killed by gunfire throughout the deadly Independence Day weekend, which saw at least 49 being shot during the holiday.
Big League Politics has reported on the rise in shootings that has taken place in New York City due to Mayor Bill de Blasio’s soft-on-crime policies and the nationwide Black Lives Matter terror spree:
Shootings in New York City have spiked 358 percent in comparison to this time last year, as Black Lives Matter (BLM) riots weaken the rule of law across the city.
There were 12 shootings over the previous week in 2019, and that has jumped to an incredible 55 shootings over the same week just one year later. This resulted in 74 people being wounded, according to data released by the NYPD.
This news comes after NYPD Commissioner Dermot Shea announced that a plainclothes unit meant to sniff out crime on the streets was disbanded. He made it clear that his agency would not be reversing their decision no matter how bad society devolves.
“We cannot stop our way out of this problem,” Shea said. “We need bad people held accountable,” he added.
The criminals are being unleashed, and the anti-crime strides achieved over the past few decades are being reversed under the rule of far-left Mayor Bill de Blasio.
De Blasio addressed the surge of crime with his usual empty platitudes: “We are not going back to the bad old days where there was too much gun violence in this city, nor are we going back to the bad old days” of police supposedly abusing civil liberties.
Criminals have received the message that de Blasio is actively hamstringing law enforcement. This has resulted in a wave of savagery that goes far beyond mere shootings.
The blood is on de Blasio’s hands for shackling law enforcement and allowing criminals to run wild throughout his city.

She was outside where kids were riding on bicycles when three gunmen stepped out of a car and let off more than 20 shots in the 100 block of North Latrobe Avenue, Chicago police said.
Natalia died at the scene of a gunshot to her head, officials said. Police were reviewing video from the scene and have taken a person of interest in for questioning.
Natalia was about to enter the 2nd grade at Crown Community Academy of Fine Arts in Little Village, according to a school official.
“She was a really good kid — an angel,” said the official, who asked not to be named. “She had a lot of family at the school. Everyone in her class would’ve said she was their friend.”
Nathan Wallace, the girl’s father, said at a news conference Sunday he’d hugged her goodbye just 10 minutes before the shooting occurred.
“I just wanted her to have a chance at life,” Wallace said. “Whatever she wanted to do, I was going to be there no matter what. To see my daughter on the table with a gunshot wound to the forehead, that’ll change somebody’s life.”
He said he’d heard about other children being shot in recent weeks, but didn’t think about it until it was his own daughter killed. He called for others in the community to take a more active, personal role in confronting the gun violence crisis.
We need help finding her killers,” he said. “Kids can’t be out here playing without worrying about people shooting. It hurts me that my youngest daughter is no longer here, that I will not be able to talk to her, hold her, tell her bedtime stories, anything.”
In response to her killing, Lightfoot took to Twitter to say Natalia “joined a list of teenagers and children whose hopes and dreams were ended by the barrel of a gun. We cannot grow numb to this. We are making progress in slowing shootings, but we have to do better, every single one of us.”
Also Saturday night, 14-year-old Vernado Jones Jr., died after being among eight people shot, three others fatally, in Englewood on the South Side, officials said.
Four gunmen walked up to a large gathering in the 6100 block of South Carpenter Street and opened fire, police said. Jones, of West Lawn, died at Comer Children’s Hospital, according to the medical examiner’s office.
The shooting also wounded two boys, 11 and 15 years old, police said.
Activists demand ‘law and order’
Community activist Andrew Holmes announced Sunday a $2000 reward for “information leading to the arrest and conviction” in the case of Natalia Wallace.
“Let’s stop pointing fingers and get these shooters off the streets,” Holmes said at a news conference Sunday in Austin, “because with the technology we have in this city, there’s enough cameras and enough citizens around here that’s seen something.”
Also Sunday, several community activists demanded federal funding to help with the “out of control” gun violence, while also accusing the mayor of turning her back on police.
In a news conference in Little Village, Raul Montes Jr. called the weekend gun violence a “carbon copy” of the last few weeks and blamed Lightfoot for allowing protests to devolve into looting while “giving a nod to Antifa,” a far-left anti-fascist group.
Another activist, Jacqueline Baez of Belmont Cragin, said residents are scared to go outside and called for increased police funding.
“Here we are again, another bloody weekend in Chicago. Our innocent children are dying,” Baez said.
Baez dismissed the calls of other activists to defund police departments, a refrain of nationwide protests since the police killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis.
“Defunding police is the stupidest thing to say,” Baez said. “We need police. We need to feel safe in our communities … I don’t feel safe letting my kids play outside.”
‘When you shoot children, we’ve lost it all’
Another activist, Frank Coconate, while acknowledging the extra officers over the holiday weekend, said it’s not just about having more police.
“It’s about cooperation; we need to build a bridge between community and police,” Coconate said.
“People in Pilsen and Little Village, there’s no bond with police. There’s a fear of talking with them, and that’s a huge problem. Here they’re scared. It’s good to have those [extra cops], but let’s have those cops walk the streets and talk with people … There should be more invested in having Chicago police working with the community.”
Coconate said it’s up to the mayor — and for citizens to lay on the pressure — to stop the violence.
“When you shoot children, we’ve lost it all. And the mayor holds the bag now … This has been going on every weekend, and now what’s really rubbing me — it’s children … That poor little girl playing on a holiday weekend dies. That shouldn’t be happening. We are, as citizens, are to blame. We’re not working hard enough.”
Three weekends of gun violence
The last three weekends in Chicago have been especially deadly for children.
Over Father’s Day weekend, Mekhi James, 3 years old, was fatally shot while riding in an SUV with his father in Austin when someone opened fire on them from another vehicle. Amaria Jones, 13, died after she was struck by a stray bullet in a shooting that also wounded two boys on the West Side. They were among 104 people shot that weekend, 15 of them fatally.
The so-called Sleep Is For The Rich Gun Club demonstrated at the courthouse while holding weapons in an extremely thuggish fashion to intimidate their opposition. Police had a presence around the courthouse to make sure that they did not go on a rampage.
“Why are we still having to come out here to fight over a monument that, for people that fought against our country, bro?” Daniels said. “Y’all don’t understand the hypocrisy in that? And then you want to ask why we’re out here protecting these people? It’s about good versus evil, that’s why.”
Pastor Linus Mayes, who organizes the group Community Congress for Systemic Justice, made excuses for the terrorists who waved guns around at the protest. He demonstrated how so-called “peaceful” BLM protesters run cover for the rioters who commit mayhem in the streets.
“We don’t support violence. We’re against anybody committing violence,” Mayes said. “But we need to make a showing that if the Daughters of the Confederacy have their rights according to the first amendment, then we ought to be able to stand here with our guns as well to show that we will not be intimidated nor threatened.”
Caddo Commissioners have been leading the charge to remove a Confederate statue from Shreveport in order to appease the mob. However, the United Daughters of the Confederacy has filed a legal brief at least temporarily stopping the cowardly government officials from committing cultural genocide. Caddo District Judge Craig Marcotte has not given a time frame on when he plans to make his ruling.
Patriotic protesters may have to fight fire with fire in order to prevent the savages from raping America’s proud history.
Big League Politics reported on a group of patriots who stood their ground and refused to let the mob win in a Kentucky town:
On Friday evening, a group of armed patriots in Brandenburg, Ky. protected a Confederate statue as a Black Lives Matter mob was expected to gather and potentially deface it.
The mob has made a big deal of the 70 foot Confederate statue, which used to be located on the University of Louisville campus until 2016, as they continue their ongoing cultural genocide. The patriots of Brandenburg showed up to say no more to the ISIS-style movement of destruction…
WDRB reported that certain “business owners boarded up windows in anticipation of possible violence, but law enforcement officers from several agencies had kept the peace, at least through 10 p.m.”
These armed patriots made their stand as the left-wing cultural genocide has swept across America, with black dominance being projected through acts of mayhem nationwide.
The constitutional militia may need to make a return with government officials capitulating and hamstringing law enforcement while BLM runs wild.
