Horowitz: Man arrested for randomly punching elderly woman in NYC had 18 prior arrests

Every day, another shocking video of a brazen violent crime committed in broad daylight in the once safe city of New York surfaces on the internet. Each time, we discover the attacker is a repeat violent offender who has cycled in and out of the jail cell without being held for any meaningful time.

We all watched in horror when the NYPD released a video of a man on a bicycle going out of his way to swerve over to an elderly woman and punch her in the face. Thankfully, four New York firefighters sprang into action and caught up with the suspect and held him down until police arrived. Yet another reminder on this anniversary of 9/11 that NYFD officers are some of the bravest people alive. The suspect was identified as 53-year-old Daniel Biggs.

So, who is Daniel Biggs and why did he feel that he could get away with such a brazen attack in broad daylight? According to police, he had 18 prior arrests for crimes that included robbery and assault. His most recent arrest was just last month, when he was charged with slashing another man’s face.

You might be wondering how a man with 18 arrests who is then charged with stabbing someone could be released on the streets yet again to attack a woman in broad daylight. But as the saying goes, fool me once, shame on you, fool me … 18 times?! … shame on me! At some point, you almost can’t blame the criminal for thinking he is free to attack people with impunity. The problem is the New York laws on bail and the politicians pushing pro-criminal policies on multiple fronts.

In Cuomo and de Blasio’s New York, the most violent repeat offenders now feel it’s open season to attack the elderly and vulnerable. Just two weeks ago, a man with 14 prior arrests, including for recent violent incidents, was caught on camera on top of a woman in a subway trying to rape her in broad daylight. Despite his record, he was offered $75,000 bail and appears to have been released several days later.

In June, we all watched the shocking video of a 92-year-old woman get hit in the face and knocked to the ground by a man with 103 arrests, including a sex offender conviction.

Given how infrequently these violent criminals are locked up – both pretrial and post-conviction – how many of these women do you think will be willing to testify against their assailants knowing that the suspects will be roaming around and that thanks to New York’s new discovery law, the suspects will immediately have the victims’ contact information?

What is going in in New York, according to Suffolk County Police Commissioner Geraldine Hart, is the perfect storm of the bail law, rioting sapping police resources and deterring better policing, and coronavirus jailbreak.

“Individuals that are being released on their own recognizance that had not been previously, whether it’s COVID, where we had to have officers step back slightly on search warrants, which is something that we always use to take guns off the street, and now, with the protests, we’re seeing a level of cooperation that is a little bit challenging,” said Hart in reference to recent gang-related shootings in what used to be a quiet suburb of NYC.

The hallmark of all these attacks is that they are violent, they target vulnerable people in public, and the perpetrators are career criminals who clearly fear no punishment. In other words, everything that former Mayor Rudolph Giuliani built in terms of criminal justice deterrent has been dismantled by Cuomo and de Blasio in a matter of a few years.

The transition from broken windows policing and tough sentencing to allowing open anarchy is harming the very people that de Blasio claimed to care for. Black lives, under a broken windows permissiveness policy, truly don’t matter because their blood is spilled like water. While white people will suffer from assaults and muggings, as was the case in this particular incident, most of the shooting victims are non-white. As the Manhattan Institute’s Rafael Mangual observes of New York City, this past June, 97 percent of the city’s shooting victims were non-white. As he notes, through August, there were 1,004 shooting incidents in the city, which represents an 87% year-to-date increase over last year. That’s an awful lot of black lives lost or harmed as a result of the Black Lives Matter agenda.

Fortunately for the less fortunate victims of crime, residents of the posh Upper West Side of Manhattan are now dealing with the “broken windows” with the homeless, public urination, and drug dealing right on their doorsteps – just like during the 1970s. Until wealthy people begin feeling the heat of the rising crime, the pressure on the police and local judges will continue to weigh on the side of the criminals.

NYC: Teens rob, punch 74-year-old woman in broad daylight

Three teens were caught on video robbing and punching a 74-year-old woman in New York City. NYPD is asking the public to help identify the teens involved in the brutal attack and robbery that happened in broad daylight.

Shortly before 7 p.m. on Sept. 3 in the East Village, a teen snatched a woman’s purse on a busy sidewalk on East 14th Street. Security footage shows the woman attempt to get her purse back from the teen, but then he frantically and viciously spins and punches her in the face. She collapses to the ground. All while there were numerous bystanders nearby.

The teen who had the woman’s purse then drops it, and the group flees the scene, WNYW reported.

“Although the victim sustained bruising and swelling to her face and cuts and scrapes to her hands she refused medical attention,” the NYPD said.

The three suspects, two males, and one female, are black. The NYPD noted that they are all between the ages of 14 and 18.

Anyone with information in regard to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477), on the Crime Stoppers website at NYPDCRIMESTOPPERS.COM, on via Twitter: @NYPDTips.

(WARNING: Graphic Video)

Last Saturday at around 11 a.m., a 25-year-old woman was sexually assaulted on an Upper East Side subway platform. A man attempted to rape the woman in the middle of the day with witnesses all around.

The victim suffered minor injuries, but refused medical assistance.

The suspect, Jose Reyes, was arrested in East Harlem on Sunday afternoon. The 31-year-old man was charged with attempted rape, assault, and harassment.

New York City has been plagued by an increase in several violent crimes this summer. On Wednesday, the NYPD released the crime statistics for August and there was a 166% increase in shootings in the Big Apple compared to last year. There were 53 murders in New York City, versus 36 in 2019, a jump of 47%. Robberies were up 4%, and burglaries increased by 22%.

In June, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio (D) announced that he would be “shifting funds” away from the New York Police Department.

“We committed to move resources from the NYPD to youth and social services as part of our City’s budget,” de Blasio said. The mayor promised that police funding could be cut while still keeping the city safe.

Earlier this week, a shocking video surfaced of a man in Baltimore sneaking up on another man and smashing him in the head with bricks. The victim fell face-first into the sidewalk. In the video, people could be heard laughing about the heinous and seemingly unprovoked attack.

Video footage captures aftermath of 2 separate daytime shootings that took place in NYC this week

Two men were reportedly shot in broad daylight in the streets of New York City this week.

According to social media user Adam Weiss — who is described as a publicist from New York City and shared the disturbing footage on social media — the incidents took place on the city’s streets on Wednesday.

What is in these videos?

He captioned the video,
writing, “Welcome to the new NYC. Day time shootings mean we have lost control of the city.”

Weiss shared a second video of a second shooting victim, which he
captioned, “Two people were shot, one fatally, in broad daylight on a Brooklyn street Wednesday afternoon. This is thanks to the failed policies and lack of support for police by @NYCMayor. The suspects have not been located.”

He later
added, “We cannot let this be our new normal.”

In one of the videos, what appears to be a male shooting victim can be seen lying on the street with blood smeared over his stomach as concerned bystanders approach.

A second video shows a second male victim lying on the road, grievously wounded, next to an expanding pool of blood.

A third video shows good Samaritans trying to assist the same male victim, who is clearly in dire condition, as he bleeds out on the street.

A male bystander can be heard off-camera repeatedly saying, “Jesus loves you. The God of Israel loves you” as sirens wail in the background.

Daytime shootings more than double

Earlier in August, Fox News reported that daytime shootings across the city have doubled over the last year.

The report revealed that the city “saw more than double the daytime shootings — those that occurred between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. — from May 1 through July 31 than it did during the same period last year.”

“New York Police Department statistics show a nearly 137% increase in the number of shootings that occurred over the three-month period specifically during the daylight hours of 7 a.m. and 7 p.m.,” the report continued. “From May through July 2020, 168 incidents were reported, while during the same time period in 2019 the number of shootings reported was 71.”

In total, daytime shootings over a three-month period increased from 85 in 2019 to 192 in 2020.

AOC says spike in NYC crime could be caused by people ‘who need to shoplift some bread’

New York City has experienced a surge in violent crime in recent weeks, including a 200% increase in shootings between June 15 and July 2 of this year, compared to the same time in 2019. Over the July 4th holiday weekend, 64 people were shot, and 11 died from their gunshot wounds. In the last four weeks, New York City has seen an increase in shootings compared to last year.

There was one especially heartbreaking shooting caught on video of a father gunned down in broad daylight while walking hand-in-hand with his 6-year-old daughter in the Bronx.

But it isn’t just gun violence troubling the Big Apple. In the past two weeks, there was a grisly knife attack in the subway and a stabbing in Brooklyn.

Following the George Floyd protests against police brutality, the New York Police Department disbanded its plainclothes unit, which has been involved in a disproportionate number of fatal officer-involved shootings.

Last week, an NYPD cop shared a video mocking the new and overly cautious policing tactics being implemented in New York City following the nationwide protests against police brutality.

In early June, NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio announced he is moving “resources from the NYPD to youth and social services as part of our City’s budget.”

Mayor de Blasio proposed cutting nearly $1 billion from the NYPD. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) scoffed at the proposal, calling it a “disingenuous illusion.” She said, “Defunding police means defunding police.”

On Thursday during a virtual town hall, Ocasio-Cortez talked about the “uptick in crime” in New York City. She pointed out that the cuts to NYPD hasn’t happened yet, and there is still an increase in crime.

AOC proposed some theories for the crime wave, and asked: “Do we think this has to do with the fact that there’s record unemployment in the United States right now?” Ocasio-Cortez continued, “The fact that people are at a level of economic desperation that we have not seen since the Great Recession.”

The Democratic socialist hypothesized that the increase in NYC violence could stem from rent demands and people shoplifting bread.

“Maybe this has to do with the fact that people aren’t paying their rent and are scared to pay their rent,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “And so they go out and they need to feed their child and they don’t have money so you… maybe have to… they’re put in a position… they feel like they either need to shoplift some bread or go hungry that night.”

According to the NYPD crime data, petit larceny, stealing of personal property that has a value less than $1,000, was down 7.5% compared to last year. However, murder was up 27.1% and shooting incidents were up 53.5%.

Ocasio-Cortez also speculated that the skyrocketing crime could be caused because “unemployment provisions have not been given to everyone.” She also suggested that the crime may have increased because “some people still have not been given their stimulus check yet.”
