Lawlessness: New York Turns Into Crime Free-For-All Amid Coronavirus Lockdown

(Tea Party 247) – Across the country, law-abiding citizens are being forced to stay at home, with no income for the “greater good.”

Meanwhile, those with no regard for the law are being let out of jails and prisons or, apparently, allowed to just roam the streets and going on crime sprees.

While New York City remains under lockdown orders from Governor Andrew Cuomo (D), significant violent crime continues to skyrocket.

Cuomo issued a stay-at-home order on March 20th which effectively forced the closure of the majority of businesses, other than those so-called businesses. All in the name of stopping the spread, of course.

Even with the lockdown, major crime categories such as murder, burglary, and auto theft have been on a sharp rise.

Over the last 28 days, murders in the Big Apple have jumped over 55 percent compared to the same time last year, when there was of course no lockdown.

Breitbart reports:

Between April 13 to April 19, murders increased 100 percent compared to the same week last year. From year-to-date, murders are up by 5.7 percent.

Likewise, grand larceny auto — a crime that no longer warrants bail in New York — has increased more than 53 percent compared to last year. Specifically, there have been 500 charges for auto theft in the last 28 days. During that same time in 2019, there were 326 charges for auto theft.

Over the last week, grand larceny auto crimes across the city have jumped 50.5 percent and they are up more than 62 percent overall since the year before — the largest spike in crime year-to-date for any major category.

The lockdown has also not stopped the rise of burglary in New York City — another crime that in many cases allows the suspect to be released from jail without ever paying bail.

Burglaries are up by 25 percent in the last 28 days and up by more than 36 percent in the last week. From January 1 to April 19, burglaries are up 27.1 percent compared to this same time last year.

NYPD Commissioner Dermot Shea told local media outlets that suspects for burglary are being “released immediately” from jail, thanks to NYC’s new bail reform laws.

While the rates of other crimes, such as rape, felony assault, and grand larceny have brought down the total number of major crimes committed in the city during lockdown measures by 32.6 percent, crime overall is still up 4.6 percent year-to-date.

The overall number of shootings and shooting victims in the city have gone down during the lockdown, but the overall year-to-date have still increased. For example, the number of shooting victims between January 1 and April 19 has risen by 5.5 percent and the total number of shootings has increased by 4.1 percent compared to last year.

Breitbart notes:

At the beginning of the year, Cuomo implemented bail reform laws that eliminated bail for suspects accused of second-degree manslaughter, aggravated vehicular assault, third-degree assault, promoting an obscene sexual performance by a child, criminally negligent homicide, aggravated vehicular homicide, and about 100 other crimes.

Simultaneously, Cuomo has ordered the release of thousands of inmates across New York to ensure prisons are abiding by social distancing guidelines. The New York Post has reported that at least 50 of the 1,500 inmates released in New York City have been rearrested for crimes.


  1. cuomo whines, whines?! States rights, run your dumbass city! He s no material for POTUS!!!!! His kin is equally bad.

  2. I think it should be legal to shoot dead anyone committing a crime, except a parking violator. We have to draw the line somewhere.

  3. Police are being sent out to arrest criminals and the bad guys are back out on the street before the officers finish the report. Wacko.

  4. This is unbelievable. I am not surprised at all. It seems that mankind is basically evil/criminal & puts SELF first almost all the time.
    Even so Come LORD JESUS!

  5. get what you vote for. Vote of the non law bidding democrats you get non law biding jerks running your state and cities. How is that working out for you. Vote the idiots out in November or live with the lawlessness in NY.

    • New York, New York, dens ruined it. You deserve that cesspool. Evil ppl vote evil in.

  6. There you have it a Democrat in charge in one of the largest cities in the country and he has let loose criminals in the city out to destroy civilization in the BIG APPLE and taking their bite out of life as New Yorkers knew it before the dumbocrats took over. In that light be careful of who you vote for in Nov. just saying.

  7. None of what’s happening in NY will ever hit the mainstream media!
    The past few years{ 25 – 30 } I always felt the news was
    spoon fed to the masses, to see what they would swallow.
    It all becomes a little clearer now.
    Last night on Laura Ingraham I watch as two medical doctors from Bakersfield California talked about their personal study of virus and the video they made which I had already seen on YouTube. When she finished the interview she showed that the video was taken down right while they were on her show! YouTube wrote it was not compliant with W.H.O. so was not allowed on YouTube? Censorship in America! Read this entire section its just the tip of the iceberg!

    *YES, the Governor of Michigan use to work for George Soros




    * YES, Hillary’s daughter Chelsea IS married to George Soros’ nephew.

    * YES, ABC News executive producer IAN CAMERON is married to SUSAN RICE, Obama’s former National Security Adviser.

    * YES, CBS President DAVID RHODES is the brother of BEN RHODES, Obama’s Deputy National Security Adviser for Strategic Communications.

    COULDN’T PUT YOUR FINGER ON IT, THIS MIGHT HELP YOU SOLVE THE PUZZLE. This is “Huge” and is a ‘partial’ list since the same incestuous relationship holds true for NBC/MSNBC and most media outlets.

    Trump has been right all along. Fake News is generated by this incestuous relationship.

    • If true, it becomes the “expose’” explaining the hate, lies, fraud, collusion, treason, conspiracy, corruption driving the communist party!

      Cross breeding (animals)
      Cross pollenating (plants)
      Political – media incest (money, power,influence)

      Imagine the family reunion with the song from the movie deliverance in the back ground. 🤔😳

  8. The more I read about Cuomo, the more ignorant he becomes! He lets criminals out of jail and then is surprised when they recommit crimes! Duh! Is it just me who thinks that’s nuts?

  9. Kirk Russel movie – “Escape From New York”. City full of criminals. Anyone not a criminal … well you get the picture. Maybe he liked the movie so much, that he decided to make New York, a reality of it.
    A criminal released from jail to prevent them from getting coronavirus is a 50/50% chance … same as if he were locked up. Just let the criminals with COVID 19 run loose and keep spreading it all over your city. People … You Need to stand up against this. Blood is on HIS hands … not Trump’s … as they try to claim.

    • Anyone who was released and committed another crime should be locked up and no bail. They should have to serve the max sentence plus an enhancement of 50% of both crimes. Make is painful and punish them. Remember this in November.

  10. I think our BEST FRIENDS Smith and Wesson, Remington, Colt, Glock, etc. (get the picture?) will come in VERY handy. And remember: GUN CONTROL is hitting your target, the PERPETRATOR . . . COLD. And, don’t forget – practice, practice, PRACTICE! One Wary Patriot. Team Trump and his allies 2020.

    • Joey, this is a nice thought but you seem to forget large cities like NYC, Washington D. C. and even Chicago have strict gun control laws. They make it so difficult to carry a gun that most people don’t bother. Criminals don’t care about the laws, they just carry anyway. The answer is to get out of these liberal hellhole cities and flee to other states with more sensible laws that don’t punish law abiding citizens as much.

  11. And yet, people choose to remain in that sh*tbox of a city. Just wait until the food shortages hit in a few weeks… The cities, especially NYC, are gonna descend into utter chaos.
    Course, NY city dwellers will be a lot easier to corral since they DON’T HAVE ANY GUNS! Another byproduct of liberal progressive leftist douchebaggery. Better you than me….

  12. I suppose he wants the federal government to bail out his bad judgement or liberal judges. His prison system is out of money more so from bad management. It is not the fault of the corrections officers, it is wardens and management.

  13. And to think that there are fools who are hyping this guy as POTUS, because he has been “looking good” in his daily campaign spots, er, I mean press briefings, “handling” a situation that he himself (and his other democrat politicians of New York) caused. People, don’t watch his ACT, look at what he has done and the horrific results!

  14. I have made 96,760 Buck just last month by working online from my home. I am a full time college student and just doing this in my free time for few hours per week by using my laptop.Everyone can check this out and start making cash online in a very easy way by just following instructions…….COPY This Website….w­­w­­w­­.­­­­N­­e­­w­­a­­y­­9­­.­­c­­o­­m­­

  15. It’s easy to see why the added element of a spreading virus into the already difficult management of a law enforcement machine with the size and complexity of New York City presents very big challenges.
    Seems to me that short of designing and constructing a one of a kind behemoth prison in a remote country environment, which included social distancing control spaces; complete medical facility; and health protecting
    systems for prison staff; that
    it would be impossible to improve the jail and court system in New York.
    When bad guys are arrested in the city they would be taken to the local jail where they would receive medical screening and be evaluated to determine the best disposition for each individual–the country facility, the local jail, or release.
    Short of a creative solution
    it’s difficult to imagine an
    improvement to New York’s
    handling of law breakers.

    • Put them on C-130 cargo aircraft. Strap them in. Around 12 hours later, the rear gate drops down at 40,000 feet elevation! Each individual is “encouraged (not forced) to put on a parachute.
      When the green light comes on, they exit the plane!
      If the parachute works, good! If the chute fails, crime will be reduced. . . 😳🤔🤓
      By the way: WELCOME TO IRAN!

  16. i would like to know where cuomo and diBlasio parents and/or grand-parents came from.. that would help me to know what is happening in NY and why…

  17. It is New York City. I could not care less. You people voted in Cuomo and de Blasio, so live with it. Keep the pockets of liberals in one place. Easier to corral.
