Shootings rise in NYC

Progressive Mayor Bill de Blasio pretty much told NYPD to stop their "stop and frisk" operations that wer being used to get guns off the streets. 

Guess what happened?

From the New York Daily News:
Officers assigned to the 75th Precinct in East New York and the 73rd Precinct in Brownsville stopped just 126 people in the first half of 2014, compared to 10,540 stops between January and June of 2011. 
The nearly eye-popping decrease is no misprint — and it comes as shootings in those neighborhoods are on the rise. 
Shootings are up in East New York from 34 to 43 through Aug. 10, a spike of about 27% compared to last year. In Brownsville, shootings are up from 38 to 56, an increase of about 47% over the same time period.
