The latest violent news coming out of Harlem suggests the community would be better named Hell …

As previously reported, two New York Police Department officers, Jason Rivera and Wilbert Mora, were murdered in NYC last month. More specifically, they were murdered during an ambush in Harlem.

Weeks later on Sat. Feb. 5th, another officer reportedly almost became the next victim — albeit while off-duty.

“[T]he 47-year-old off-duty officer, a 16-year veteran of the force, was attending a vigil there for a prominent community member. According to police, as he was leaving the lobby of a community center, he walked out and witnessed two men involved in a shooting,” local station WLNY reported at the time.

He then reportedly dived for cover and wound up sustaining a gunshot wound in his foot, though he didn’t realize it at first.

“The officer was able to assist with the investigation, give a physical description of the two males and work with the officers to try to apprehend the suspect. As the off-duty officer was standing there, he started to feel pain in his left foot,” NYPD Chief of Housing Jeffrey Maddrey reportedly said.

“An ambulance came. He was looked at and examined in the back of the ambulance and he realized that he was shot in the foot. It appears to be two wounds. We don’t know if it’s an entry or an exit wound, that’s to be determined,” according to Maddrey.

His assistance wound up proving vital, because the two suspects have finally been apprehended, though the details surrounding their identity are extremely disturbing.

“A 17-year-old has been charged with attempted murder and assault on a police officer with a deadly weapon. A 16-year-old has been charged with attempted murder,” WLNY has confirmed.

This is no anomaly. Harlem and other NYC boroughs, in addition to many Democrat-controlled cities across the country, have seen an uptick in teen crime, including murder.

In an October shooting that was gang-related, an 18-year-old murdered a 17-year-old.

“Tyler Wise, also known Johnny Ringo, is wanted for the Oct. 26 shooting outside a McDonald’s at Lenox Ave. and W. 132nd St. at 3:20 p.m. The NYPD said surveillance video captured Wise being followed by 17-year-old Taquan Jones. Suddenly, Wise turns and kills Jones,” the New York Daily News reported two months later.

Jones then reportedly “ran down W. 132nd St. and collapsed in a driveway. Medics rushed him to Harlem Hospital but he could not be saved.”

Just type “teen arrested murder” into any search engine, and you’ll be flooded with a spate of similar stories from just this week alone:

KCRG, Feb. 11th: “Police said a teen has been charged with first degree murder in connection to a shooting incident in Cedar Rapids last year that resulted in the death of 15-year-old Tyliyah Whitis.”

The Dispatch (Lexington), Feb. 11th: “A 14-year-old taken into custody for a stolen car and police chase in Lexington has been charged in connection with a murder in High Point on Monday.”

King City Rustler, Feb. 11th: “A 16-year-old boy has been arrested in connection with the killing of three people in King City. Following a pair of local search warrants executed Friday morning, King City Police arrested the teen for three counts of homicide.”

Daily Commercial, Feb. 10th: “A 16-year-old boy was arrested and charged with the first-degree murder of Tyshaun Robison, 28, who was found lying in the street with multiple gunshot wounds last Friday.”

Paterson Times, Feb. 10th: “The police arrested two teens for their alleged role in a murder that took place on East 19th Street, according to the Passaic County Prosecutor’s Office. Jae’Wuan Abrams, 18, and a 17-year-old, both of Paterson, were arrested on Wednesday. Both have been charged with murder and weapons offenses.”

Block Club Chicago, Feb. 9th: “A 16-year-old boy accused of carjacking someone on the West Side Tuesday has been charged with fatally shooting a Bronzeville student walking home from school, police said Wednesday.”

While critics say the blame for this crisis is multifaceted, many believe the biggest factor is the lax treatment of criminal offenders.

Late last month, for instance, a 16-year-old gangster rapper got into a scuffle with police after refusing to comply with their orders and wound up accidentally triggering his gun, firing a single round that amazingly — first struck him in the groin and then an officer, Kaseem Pennant, in the leg.

After receiving treatment, the teen thug was tossed into jail but then quickly released thanks to a Bronx judge who refused the prosecution’s request that he be held without bail.

Not surprisingly, the teen thug, Camrin Williams, aka C Blu, wound up in custody again about a week ago for violating his probation.

He “was ordered back to the Crossroads Juvenile Center in Brooklyn because the gun he allegedly used to shoot the cop violated the terms of his probation from an earlier case,” according to the New York Post.

He’d been “on probation in a 2020 gun case when he allegedly got into a scuffle with police officers in Belmont on Jan. 18 and shot the 27-year-old cop.”
