New York Citys homicide rate is rising as fast as its sweltering temperatures.
There have been a staggering 16 murders in the past five days including seven since Friday night. They have claimed a variety of victims, including children, clubgoers, a shopkeeper and a husband.
Thugs armed with an AK-47 settled a nightclub beef by following their victims to a quiet Queens street and spraying their SUV with 63 bullets early yesterday killing three and wounding another, law-enforcement sources said.
Their heads were practically blown clean off. Exposed brain and everything, one neighbor said of the horrifying scene.
I saw two dead guys in the car and one dead guy on the ground.

Unpossible. Guns are banned in NYC.
It isn’t the heat. Its the chickens coming back to roost. Maybe if Bloomer’s wasn’t so busy banning big gulps he would pay more attention to what’s going on in his city.
This is what happens when you ban big gulps and slushies.
Those wacky democrats just having fun!
Bloomberg proudly announces, “Fewer people dying of smoking, salt and trans-fats.”
Bloomberg, the Nanny, is too busy regulating salt and the size of soft drinks to worry about murder committed with outlawed guns. What a dysfunctional city.
63 rounds means they used 3 magazines ...
Or a ChiCom drum!
One of the victims was shot right out of his shoes, with his barefoot body left on the street.
Undoubtedly, “if obama had a son” the shooters and victims would look like obama. Eric Holder, what are you going to do about “your people?”
What percent were “holder’s people”?
could have been a 75 round drum or even a 100 round drum
No doubt purchased at one of the many unregulated gun shows where people can buy howitzers and nobody is the wiser. You know the ones where there are no background checks on
anything. So has NYC caught up with uncle obie’s beloved chitown yet?
Helping keep mankind warm for 65 years.
It’s what happens when you teach people that life has no inherent value.
Yet if one neighborhood watch person had challenged these murderers, that person would be the one arrested.
New efforts to ban guns of law abiding citizens coming. Despicable ineffective politicians playing for the camera’s jumping on the easiest way to satisfy the public at large. Ban all guns if you cant get a handle on the illegal ones. This will leave the thug criminals having the only ones. I guess stop and frisk didnt work in this case.
Mrs Doubtberg banned Big Gulps and salt so the criminals will be more svelt and capable of running from the police faster.
Meanwhile, back at the Nuthouse Mrs Doubtberg is working on his latest bans.......knives, forks, toilet paper and air conditioners.
Ok, lets see...
“brutal slayings were caused by a fight over a girl and a “look”
One “victim” had twin 2 yr. olds and an 11 year old and loved his kids.
The other “victim” was Jamaican born “salesman” - also a loving father.
Doesn’t make mention of the respective wives. Presumably they were at church preparing a bake sale.
A 9mm was also involved so it wasn’t just the AK’s fault.
63 shots - could have been an accident.
As the Bloody Mayor actions dictate....
“If one takes care of the little things like sugared drinks, the murderers will take care of each other.”
And all is Obama in Liberal New York City.
>>Do you think the guns made their way North from Mexico<<
Operacion Forte y Rapido...
Those figures are right up there with Chicago.
Society is still wondering why our jails hold a disproportionate number of colored prisoners.
Look on the bright side, at least they didn't suffer..................
Yep, that's what it was, the AK got stuck on "shoot".............
Someone remind me...why do people live in large urban hell-holes (especially those governeed by LIB asshats)? As it is said, you ain’t seen nothing yet.
Folks need to move to a safer city, like Baghdad.
Meanwhile, the cops’ attention is more focused on people dancing on subway platforms.
...or, more likely, more than one weapon.
Heat? They’re killing each other because they’re hot?
Didn’t we just pass the ACA (Air Conditioning for All) bill?
There must be some other underlying problem that we need to spend billions on!
When Monster Slurpees are all criminal, only criminals will have Monster Slurpees!
2,000 AK's is what Eric Holder unleashed on Mexican cartels. NOT ONE was recovered except from crime scenes - 5 of which have already involved murders. They could be anywhere by now, including in this crime. Do you think for a minute the gov't will tell us if it is?
If he was such a good father, ("always there for his kids"), why was he out partying until 5 a.m.??
Harkins back to old Abe Beam.....city went broke and he went hat in hand to anyone to bail them out.
If democrats were in charge of a desert, they would run out of sand.
Mike Bloomberg is quickly turning into a white David Dinkins.
Crime spikes in heat waves just as it dives during blizzards and freezing winters. Criminal types are forced out of their hot little tenements into the streets and air-conditioned dance clubs. Add booze and weapons...
“Watch what happens when you take away the govt sugar tit.”
Wait until the lights go out (from closing all those power plants), and the EBT cards won’t work any more...
Yes, I was cracking wise a bit. That’s why I mentioned the ACA.
But it’s always something, isn’t it? Heat, a sporting event, a look at a girl, Bush is a racist, whatever.
As someone pointed out upthread, wait until the federal and state money spigot runs dry, and then watch what happens.
Miss M, it is going to get very hot in your backyard.
It’s always been hot in the backyard. I’ve learned how to avoid those parts of the backyard that are the hottest and learned to love my front stoop.
In other words, I LOVE New York.
Gotta give the NY thugs credit over the Chicago ones— at least they only hit their intended victims, so they must of spent some time at the range.
I can't really speak for other large cities as I haven't truly lived there, but NYC is really nice if you are in the top 5% or so.
Manhattan island has something different and a rich history behind every corner. Don't forget that it is one of the principal centers of the founding of our Republic. You can walk the same streets and go inside the same places the founding fathers did.
I've lived here for most of the last 20+ years and experienced maybe 5-10%. Here's a few of the reasons I like it
-You can get plenty of quiet time if you live in a high-rise apartment or one of the neighborhoods with houses. That's one of the first things you notice about a penthouse garden - you take an elevator up and it's a quiet retreat.
-All of the world's best shows, art, foods, sports, etc come through here non-stop all year. It's like having the whole world's entertainment within walking distance. And in the “city that never sleeps”, there is action 24/7.
-The most gorgeous women from every corner of the world come here. Just walk around a nice neighborhood any time and you'll see women that belong in magazines everywhere. Nomatter what your “type”, I know a place that has exactly what you are looking for. Cornfed midwestern, asian, south american, Russian, etc. They are not only gorgeous, but commonly have the ambition and education to match. But again, girls like this know they are in the top 5% so they want a man also in the 5%.
-If you really crave nature sometimes (like me), you can be in complete wilderness only a 2 hour drive from the city. If you can afford to live well in NYC, you can afford a country home. This is also a main transit hub with 3 airports and non-stop flights almost anywhere in the world.
If you are successful and want to experience more of the world, NYC is definitely a good home base for that. Yes, it is bad a place to live if you are middle class but there are opportunities around every corner to become successful. It is all a matter of networking and seeing the opportunity.
Mayor Michael Bloomberg on Monday invited developers to propose ways to turn a Manhattan lot into an apartment building filled mostly with what officials are calling "micro-units" - dwellings complete with a bathroom, built-in kitchenette and enough space for a careful planner to use a fold-out bed as both sleeping space and living room. If the pilot program is successful, officials could ultimately overturn a requirement established in 1987 that new apartments here be at least 400 square feet.
You know what happens to RATS when they're crowded?
I never saw that one. I love most of Bruce Willis’ movies.
I’ll have to check it out. You got me wondering about the filters now.
