(RepublicanPress.org) – Violent crime is on the rise in New York City. A December 2 report from the New York Post indicated that the prevalence of felony assaults increased 15% year on year by the end of November. Murder rates have also seen a significant rise during the last couple of years. However, the unabashed cruelty of a recent assault at a bus stop boggles the imagination.
At about 2 p.m. on December 13, a group of teenagers viciously assaulted a 67-year-old man at an East Flatbush bus stop. Footage of the incident showed one of the teens confronting the victim on a bus and throwing an unknown object at him.
The man quickly departed the bus, only to find himself surrounded by the teens. The kids start throwing punches at the victim. The video also showed one of the teenagers attacking the man with a hammer.

A woman from the bus shouted at the assailants, warning them they would kill the man, while others could be heard sobbing in the background. The clip ended with the teenagers surrounding the man as he fell to the pavement.
So far, law enforcement officials have been unable to identify and arrest the teenagers involved in the horrendous attack.
Is it time for Democratic-led cities to start showing support for their men and women in blue after more than a year of pandering to calls to “defund the police”?
