Does anybody know how to run NYC?: De Blasio blames coronavirus while NYPD chief says new restrictions caused crime wave

Democrats are experts on how to screw up a big city with mindless woke ideas. 
It's a damn shame that New York is regressing to the bad old days.  Why vote Democrat? 
NY Postreports Mayor Bill de Blasio largely blamed the coronavirus for the bloody weekend crime wave in the Big Apple — as the NYPD’s chief said the problem is much more complex, pointing to anti-police sentiment, bail reform and cops feeling they’ve had their hands tied as among the reasons for the sudden surge of violence.

This past Fourth of July weekend, “a lot of people out there, very peacefully celebrated our nation’s birthday…but we also saw too much violence this weekend,” de Blasio said during his daily City Hall press briefing as he said the city needs to “double down” on the recent spate of crime he called “worrisome.”

Nearly 50 people were shot — eight fatally — mostly in upper Manhattan and Harlem from Saturday through Sunday night. The shootings followed a record violent June in the city.

De Blasio said the uptick in shootings was “directly related to all this dislocation that we’ve seen over the last four months” in reference to the coronavirus pandemic.
