Brooklyn Rapper’s Instagram Posts Lead To Largest Gun Bust In NYC History [VIDEO]

Both Mayor Micheal Bloomberg and NYPD police commissioner Ray Kelly politicized the press conference by highlighting that Campbell pointed to the racially charged and controversial ‘Stop-and-Frisk’ laws as the reason why he was afraid to enter Brooklyn with the guns:

“I’m in Brownsville,” Kelly quoted Campbell as saying. “We got like, umm, uh, whatchamacallit, stop and frisk.”

Bloomberg credited the city’s stop-and-frisk laws with taking 8,000 guns off the street.

As previously reported by NewsOne, U.S. District Judge Shira A. Scheindlin ruled that the New York Police Department deliberately violated the civil rights of tens of thousands of New Yorkers with its Stop-and-Frisk policy, and an independent monitor is needed to oversee major changes.

Scheindlin cited Trayvon’s death in the lengthy opinion last week that infuriated NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who vows to appeal.

New York City Police Commissioner Ray Kelly, the architect of Stop-and-Frisk — and also on PresidentBarack Obama‘s short list for secretary of Homeland Security — insists that the policy saves lives and the city risks a resurgence in crime if it is no longer in effect.

Kelly also insists that more Black people are stopped because more Black people commit crimes:

“You have to apply a formula of sorts. ‘Do the stops comport with the description given by the victims of perpetrators of violent crime?’ And our stops certainly do,” Kelly said.

“Nobody wants to be stopped…we have engaged in a major training evolution for several years, focusing on these issues, to do these stops with courtesy, do them with respect,” he added.

The investigation is ongoing in the Manhatran District Attorney’s office and arrests are still being made.

As for the genius who set the wheels in motion for the NYPD’s — and the community’s — victory, Best was only  charged with one count of conspiracy.

  1. But Bloomberg reversed that and took stupid back when he was trying to make NY and their gun laws sound like it’s making such a big difference than the states of NC and SC because they have looser laws. NC and SC aren’t going to NY with the guns it’s the New Yorker’s that are traveling to the southern states buying guns so in other words all your strict gun laws in NY is only forcing your criminals (New Yorker’s) to just go elsewhere to get the guns and still bring them into NY so really his tough laws are doing nothing but spreading crime across state lines. Good job Bloom!
