Homeless deaths spike amid all-time high
in population under Mayor de Blasio

Original Article

Posted By: Ribicon, 1/19/2020 1:38:13 PM

More homeless New Yorkers died last year than in any other in the past decade—despite promises by Mayor Bill de Blasio to make their lives better. Homeless deaths from July 2018 through June 2019 totaled 404—a staggering 39% increase from the previous fiscal year and the highest number since 2006, when the city began recording the deaths. Sixty percent died in a hospital. The rest died outdoors or in other places that the city didn’t specify in its annual report, which is mandated by law. The top five causes of the deaths: drugs, heart disease, alcoholism, unspecified accidents and cancer.

Comments:

New Yorkers elected De Blasio because they care about The Little Guy and because they know socialism works. There is no push to have the homeless institutionalized (most of them are dangerously insane, often with substance addiction), so the city keeps spending more money and congratulating themselves on how much they care.

Yet another example of the Left promising the moon & stars, and failing spectacularly because they haven't a clue how to actually deliver. Only an idiot would have voted for DeBlasio in the first place, but idiots are what we are turning out in our schools-by the droves. Indoctrinating young people is easy because a) they are impressionable, and b) since they are usually cared for by parents, they are sheltered from the effects of Leftist polices. DeBlasio doesn't care about the homeless but will shift the blame to Republicans and Trump for their existence.

I still think Rudy’s solution was best. Go to a shelter or go to jail. In spite of all the bleeding heart articles, homelessness doesn’t invest anyone with holiness. The majority of these people have been down and out losers their whole lives. I’ll bet their families don’t even want them.

There is one thing that democrats everywhere are genetically incapable of grasping...… cause and effect. The second is unintended consequences. When you encourage bad behavior, you get more bad behavior. When you stop enforcing the law, you get more crime. When you give bennies to the homeless, they come in droves. What the democrats think is this....everyone should be free to be themselves with no judgement. Not enforcing the law is the right thing to do because....racism. Giving out bennies helps those that get them and that it will reduce the problem.

Of course since the homeless population has increased there would be more deaths even if the percentage stayed the same.

We had a homeless camp start in some woods in our small city. It sort of grew under the radar but they had a death there that brought the authorities in. Within a week, no more homeless camp. They simply enforced the law.....go to a shelter or leave. No one is allowed to camp on someone else's property, private or public. There will always be a 'homeless' problem because certain people want to live with no rules. Fine, but don't make your city attractive by giving them freebies and needles.

"in response to the skyrocketing number of deaths, a coalition spokeswoman called on the state and the city to provide more affordable housing." "Affordable Housing" starts with affordable taxes. I pay per quarter what I used to pay per year, not that long ago. Nobody asks if I can afford it. Same with my water and sewer - can't get away from that one. The bums run the subways - the MTA may run the trains. but the bums have taken over the subways. Yesterday I was on the Times Sq to Grand Central shuttle. 3 cars 3 bums. This morning 2 bums on the way in, 1 bum on the way home.

Let's see. Drug addicts, alcoholics and the mentally ill, living in raw sewage and eating out of dumpsters with no health care. I wonder if any of these factors might have something to do with these deaths? /s off As would be expected by any sane person.

When the feces, garbage and rat-spread plagues really take hold, the deaths will increase exponentially. They are lucky they still have the same percentage.

He has a dream—of leading a New York City that is home to far fewer Midwesterners. Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams—the leading fundraiser in the 2021 mayoral race—used Monday’s Martin Luther King Jr. national holiday to deliver an inflammatory broadside against newcomers from the nation’s heartland. “Go back to Iowa, you go back to Ohio,” he said during a speech in Harlem.(Snip) Speaking at the National Action Network’s “King Day Celebration,” hosted by founder the Rev. Al Sharpton, Adams implicitly played the race card as he denounced gentrification by singling out two states, Iowa and Ohio, that are 91 and 82 percent white

A high profile critic of Google, who accused the search engine of meddling in the 2016 election, has now suggested his wife's fatal car crash was not an accident. Robert Epstein, 66, said in July the internet giant's methods 'gave' millions of votes to Hillary Clinton during the 2016 presidential election.

A 14-year-old girl who was allegedly drugged and raped after being kidnapped in California was eventually saved by cops—after alerting her friends on Snapchat, according to police. The unidentified girl had been snatched last Tuesday in the San Cruz city Capitola by Albert Thomas Vasquez, 55, who left her “incapacitated” with drugs, San Jose Police said in a statement.

Auburn, Wash—Police in Auburn released surveillance video of a suspect they believe has been living in the rafters of a grocery store for weeks, emerging only to steal from the store, then returning to a hiding place somewhere above the store. Auburn Police Commander Mike Hirman said video shows a person dressed in black, wearing a face mask, and walking the aisles of the Haggen Northwest Fresh Market, while carrying a black bag filled with thousands of dollars in cigarettes stolen from the store. Hirman said the suspect first came to their attention on Christmas Day when police were called about what they thought

President Donald Trump made a stark appeal to black Americans during the 2016 election when he asked, “What have you got to lose?” Three years later, black Americans have rendered their verdict on his presidency with a deeply pessimistic assessment of their place in the United States under a leader seen by an overwhelming majority as racist. The findings come from a Washington Post-Ipsos poll of African Americans nationwide, which reveals fears about whether their children will have a fair shot to succeed and a belief that white Americans don’t fully appreciate the discrimination that black people experience.

Johannesburg—The United Nations World Food Programme said on Thursday that a record 45 million people in the 16-nation Southern African Development Community faced growing hunger following repeated drought, widespread flooding and economic disarray. Southern Africa is in the grips of a severe drought, as climate change wreaks havoc in impoverished countries already struggling to cope with extreme natural disasters, such as Cyclone Idai which devastated Mozambique, Zimbabwe and Malawi in 2019. Zimbabwe, once the breadbasket of southern Africa, is experiencing its worst economic crisis in a decade, marked by soaring inflation and shortages of food, fuel, medicines and electricity.

Months earlier, Chelsea Clinton, who was 18 years old around the time the Lewinsky scandal played out, put herself between her parents

But the Meghan and Harry rupture is fundamentally different from any previous crisis to befall the British monarchy.

Markle is the first duchess who hails from the American left-wing, post-Christian, anti-moral belief system that worships the journey of self-directed personal actualization.
