Family of Shooting Victim to NY Mayor de Blasio: We Need Stop and Frisk!

New York City was once a warzone. Thanks to some reasonable efforts by former Mayor Giuliani, the Big Apple became much safer. Now, thanks to rollbacks of these policies by New York’s far-left mayor, Bill de Blasio, crime continues to plague the city. Now, according to the New York Post, a family is fighting back and begging for a return to common sense.

A surge in New York City murders — including four people slain in just five bloody hours as the weekend began — has grieving family members begging Mayor de Blasio to bring back the NYPD’s right to search for guns.

“We need stop-and-frisk,” Stacey Calhoun, the devastated uncle of one of the four fatalities, said Saturday afternoon, tears filling his eyes over the nephew he had just lost.

Jahhad Marshall — a charismatic 23-year-old with a promising future as a chef — had died of a stray bullet to his back early that morning outside the Queensbridge Houses in Long Island City, police said.

“Somebody has to put their foot down,” the anguished uncle said.

“A lot of people would agree with stop-and-frisk if it’s for the safety among us,” he said.

“They used to fight with their hands, he said. “It seems like all these kids have guns these days.”

Marshall — apparently an innocent bystander to a pre-dawn playground shootout — was one of four fatalities in The Bronx, Queens and Brooklyn from Friday night into Saturday, bloodshed that began in The Bronx at 11:20 p.m. when a gunman fatally blasted Joel Rivera, 23, multiple times in the neck outside his home on Andrews Avenue.

The policy should be reinstated under careful guidelines and should be implemented with a tremendous loosening of restrictions on concealed carry permits, but if the left is as dedicated to keeping guns out of bad guys’ hands as they claim to be, this should be a no-brainer.
