unfortunately not the effect he wants. As predicted (by me) Di Blasio has made the city more accessible for criminals. Since replacing Kelly as Police Comm the murder rate has increased 33%. Stop and Risk must have been very racially biased against murderers because the police are confiscating far fewer guns from prospective criminals now. Who knew murderers were a race in NYC? http://nypost.com/2014/01/28/nyc-sees-33-percent-spike-in-murders/ As his first month as police commissioner under Mayor de Blasio winds down, Bill Bratton is already facing some sobering news â€” a 33 percent spike in murders across the city. According to the latest statistics released Tuesday, there have been 28 homicides so far this year compared to 21 in the same *period last year. That puts the city on course for at least one murder a day. Last year, the Big Apple racked up 334 homicides in 365 days, the lowest in the cityâ€™s recorded history. â€œI think Bratton needs to be concerned about the *homicide numbers, but heâ€™s a field commander at heart,â€ said a law-enforcement source. â€œIf thereâ€™s something egregiously wrong, he will go straight to the source â€” the precinct or precincts that are problematic â€” and fix it right away.â€ The source blamed de Blasioâ€™s anti-stop-and-frisk push for the uptick in slayings. â€œThis is the residual effect of de Blasioâ€™s backlash against stop-and-frisk,â€™â€™ the source said. â€œCops arenâ€™t stopping people and taking guns off the street, which emboldens the criminals,â€ the source said. The "source" is Mayor DiBlasio, so how will Bratton restrict Mayor DiDinkins?
