New York City became a Wild West when at least 9 people were shot at, and 41 others injured— including a Bronx teenager on July 4. The alarming surge of violence unfolded as the city filled up with ongoing anti-police violent acts, weeks of locking orders caused by the outbreak of coronavirus and rising summer temperatures. Furthermore, illegal fireworks exploded in the five districts all night long, contributing to the noisy environment.
Jose Cepeda, a little late midnight in East New York, Brooklyn, was shot in the chest at the first fatal shot of the night. The 20th of Cepida and a friend had a “small argument,” said Natasha Ramsay, a neighbor of the Daily News, in front of the victim’s home at Atkins Ave, near Pitkin Ave.
Cepeda raced into the University Hospital of Brookdale, but he couldn’t be rescued. It was just the first in a series of horrific cases for which cop syndicates blame the mayor of Blasio and Corey Johnson, the Council Speaker who approved the annual budget last week, which transferred about $1 billion in the funding received by the NYPD to satisfy the requests of activists for police reform. In the hours after the Fourth July fireworks last year, 9 people were shot, 1 fatally and 2 men slammed.

The chaos has been a treat for President Trump as his re-election prospects challenge. It is his crazy handling of coronavirus and national demonstrations. This has been a spree of inflammatory declarations.
The declaration evoked Trump’s calls last month to send the National Guard. It is at the height of violent Big Apple demonstrations, but city officials prevented him from doing so.
