    Federal officials on Tuesday blamed Mayor de Blasio for a fatal sex attack on a 92-year-old Queens woman — saying his “sanctuary city” policy kept the accused killer from being held for deportation last year. “It was a deadly choice to release a man on an active ICE detainer back onto the streets after his first arrest included assault and weapon charges, and he now faces new charges, including murder,” said Thomas Decker, New York field-office director of enforcement and removal operations for US Immigration and Customs Enforcement. “New York City’s sanctuary policies continue to threaten the safety of all...
  • A Bailout for Criminals: New York’s reform is freeing violent offenders who will harm again.

    Label something “criminal-justice reform” these days and it’s likely to be whisked into law in left-leaning states with little thought to the consequences. Witness the fiasco of New York’s bail reform that took effect Jan. 1 and is already producing ill effects across the state. The reform that passed last year eliminated cash bail for misdemeanors and certain nonviolent felonies. The idea was that people who were no threat to the community were locked up only because they couldn’t afford bail, and Gov. Andrew Cuomo pitched it as a victory for fairness. It turns out that some of those now...

    A former high-ranking city Education Department official who interacted daily with the chancellor invited a 14-year-old boy to a “whirlpool suite” in a Wisconsin hotel, prosecutors revealed Friday, slapping the former principal with enticement of a minor and possession of child porn charges.

Until he was fired earlier this week, Hay served as deputy chief of staff for city schools Chancellor Richard Carranza. He lives in Brooklyn but has roots in the Badger State. SNIP “Into...

    The NYPD charged a 24-year-old woman overnight in an anti-Semitic attack against a young Jewish man in Williamsburg. Police said the 22-year-old victim was assaulted shortly before 1 p.m. on Wednesday. It was the 13th reported anti-Semitic hate crime across the city since Dec. 23 — the first full day of Chanukah. Jasmine Lucas, 24, was charged with second-degree assault and criminal mischief in the latest incident. Police said Lucas and another woman yelled anti-Semitic slurs at the young man around 12:45 p.m. near Broadway and Gerry Street.

    A Brooklyn trouble-magnet who already dodged bail in an unprovoked attack on three Orthodox Jewish women — only to be busted days later for allegedly assaulting another woman — walked free again Monday. At her second arraignment in three days, Tiffany Harris, 30, was ordered into supervised release for the latest incident, in which she allegedly slugged a woman in the face in front of her two young children early Sunday in Prospect Heights.[snip] Harris, hit with charges including assault, menacing and endangering the welfare of a child, declined comment as she left the courtroom. The incident came just two...

    As we approach 2020, disaster looms over public safety in New York. A surge in violent crimes has shocked the public, from the midnight slaughter of four street sleepers by a mentally ill homeless drug addict; to the late-afternoon murder of a Barnard student, apparently by three young teenagers; to a spate of anti-Semitic attacks, climaxing in the Harlem arrest of a man who chopped his way with a machete into the upstate home of a Monsey rabbi celebrating the penultimate night of Hanukkah. Grafton Thomas, perpetrator of the Monsey attack, fled to New York City and was almost immediately...

    NBC reports the Guardian Angels, a private, unarmed crime-prevention group, said it would start patrolling New York City’s Brooklyn borough on Sunday following a series of anti-Semitic attacks. Curtis Sliwa, who founded the organization in 1979 in New York City, said the patrols would start at noon in the Crown Heights neighborhood and expand to Williamsburg and Borough Park later in the day. The move came hours before five people were wounded in a stabbing attack during a Hanukkah party at a rabbi’s house in upstate New York late Saturday. The latest incident followed eight attacks on Jews in...
  • No Mayor de Blasio, President Trump Is Not to Blame for the Stabbing of New York Jews

    Barely two weeks ago, on December 12, Ben Shapiro wrote an article titled, “The Left’s Grotesque Politicization Of Anti-Semitism.” On Sunday, December 29, we were given a glaring example of this grotesque, leftist politicization of antisemitism, as New York’s Mayor de Blasio blamed the Hanukkah stabbings on “hateful speech” emanating from Donald Trump. During an interview on Fox News, de Blasio said, “An atmosphere of hate has been developing in this country over the last few years. A lot of it is emanating from Washington and it's having an effect on all of us.”When asked directly if he was pointing...

    Anti-Semitic attacks continue to shake our city and state. Last week, eight attacks — including four in just in 48 hours — sent a familiar shockwave rippling through the Jewish community. Then Saturday came the horrific stabbing in Monsey, New York. The poison of Jew-hatred is spreading. Like many of you, I’m thinking, “Not this subject again.” How many columns can be devoted to it? I’ve read them. I’ve written them. It’s exhausting, and it’s dreary. Jews are being beaten up, anti-Semitism flows some years and ebbs in others. So what? But it matters — gravely. Mayor de Blasio released...

    President Trump on Saturday called on New York and California to tackle what he described as their “tremendous homeless problems” — suggesting they should ask the White House “politely” for help if they can’t sort it out by themselves. “California and New York must do something about their TREMENDOUS Homeless problems. They are setting records!” he tweeted. “If their Governors can’t handle the situation, which they should be able to do very easily, they must call and ‘politely’ ask for help. Would be so easy with competence!” The Department of Housing and Urban Development this month reported a 2.7 percent...

    So sorry we had to lock you up — please accept these parting gifts as an expression of our hope, it won’t happen again! Mayor Bill de Blasio’s latest soft-on-crime initiative has workers stationed on Rikers Island presenting newly released jailbirds with free transit passes and two $25 debit cards each, The Post has learned. Plans even call for the addition of prepaid, “burner”-style cellphones and drawstring bags for the ex-inmates to carry their swag, a source familiar with the program said. The “crime pays” giveaways build on another de Blasio policy — revealed by The Post last month — that showers freebies...

    There's no place like home, Mayor Bill de Blasio says—and that's why he's shipping the city's indigent to Newark. In his weekly Ask the Mayor radio segment, de Blasio asserted that his controversial Special One-Time Assistance program, under which the administration pays the rent of a homeless household for one year if they exit the five boroughs, as the only way to get people into long-term accommodations. The comments came in response to a caller who reported being a homeless person relocated to a dilapidated apartment in New Jersey—and came days after Newark lodged a lawsuit against de Blasio and...

    The “Panama Papers” exposed thousands of offshore bank accounts of the politically high and mighty; 350 reporters---an International Consortium of Investigative Journalists---are pouring over a massive dump of more than 11.5 million documents from the Panama-based Mossack Fonseca law firm; the first findings were revealed earlier this month. Hillary quickly decried the “outrageous tax havens” for “the super-rich.” But it turns out that Hillary and Bill have multiple connections with people named — including campaign staffers and major donors, McClatchy Newspapers revealed Saturday. Those named used the Panama-based law firm Mossack Fonseca to set up offshore entities. The firm has...

    NEW YORK (Reuters) - Newark Mayor Ras Baraka’s administration has sued New York Mayor Bill de Blasio, accusing the fellow Democrat of dumping his city’s population of homeless people on New Jersey’s biggest city. The lawsuit accuses the de Blasio administration’s Special One-Time Assistance, or SOTA, program of using strong-arm tactics to send people across the Hudson River to find a place to live. “This case concerns an unlawful program of ‘coerced’ migration,” Newark lawyers say in court documents filed in U.S. District Court in New Jersey on Monday. New York City officials are accused of “forcing SOTA recipients to...

    Online deliveries to an apartment building in northern Manhattan are left with a retired woman in 2H who watches over her neighbors’ packages to make sure nothing gets stolen. Corporate mailrooms in New York and other cities are overwhelmed by employees shipping personal packages to work for safekeeping, leading companies to ban packages and issue warnings that boxes will be intercepted and returned to the senders. A new start-up company is gambling that online shoppers who are worried about not getting their packages will be willing to pay extra to ship them to a home-based network of package receivers in...

    Mayor Bill de Blasio was booed and jeered by spectators as he marched in the city’s 100th annual Veterans Day Parade on Monday. One parade-goer — wearing an American flag sweatshirt and a mask depicting President Trump partially on the top of his head — shouted F-bombs as Hizzoner walked past. Other onlookers called the mayor “Comrade de Blasio” and urged him to go home. De Blasio waved an American flag and appeared unfazed by the taunts and mocking as he walked the 1.2-mile route along Fifth Avenue from 24th Street to 46th Street. Among the thousands of spectators at...
