NYC Police: Shootings up 28% Because of Occupy Wall Street

As Vice President Joe Biden rants about how rapes and murders will increase unless Congress passes Obama's second stimulus bill appears to have an opportunity he's not taking advantage of and it has to do with Occupy Wall Street. Apparently, NYC Police are saying that shootings are up by 28% because they have had to divert so many resources to OWS. Instead of demanding more money to prevent more rape and murder, perhaps Biden should be demanding the OWS protesters go home. Logically, that makes the most sense but alas, Biden is conspicuously silent.

Via New York Post:
Bullets are flying over Broadway -- and everywhere else in the city.
The number of people shot surged 154 percent two weeks ago -- to 56 from 22 over the same week last year -- and spiked 28 percent in the last month.

Last week tallied another increase in victims -- 22 people had been hit through Friday, including the three victims gunned down outside a Brooklyn school Friday.

Last year, only 17 shooting victims were logged for the entire week.

The recent gunplay has now pushed the number of shooting victims this year slightly above last year’s tragic tally -- to 1,484 from 1,451 -- through Oct. 16.

Four high-ranking cops point the finger at Occupy Wall Street protesters, saying their rallies pull special crime-fighting units away from the hot zones where they’re needed.
Does this mean that Michael Bloomberg has blood on his hands for not shutting the protests down.
