Horrific. 13 people shot over a weekend in a city of 200,000 is a huge number. This should not surprise anyone though. Rochester has not had a Republican mayor since 1973. This is a result. Out of control crime. Decade after decade. And with that an exodus of businesses from this once thriving city.
Dem-Controlled Rochester Explodes: 13 Shot, 1 Stabbed; Cops Assaulted While Tending To 16-Year-Old Shot In Face
By Daily Wire, July 6, 2020
Over the July 4 weekend, 13 people were shot and one person was stabbed in the City of Rochester, New York, where there is a population of roughly 206,000 residents. During the violent weekend, several police officers were assaulted as they rushed to tend to a 16-year-old shooting victim.
The terror in the Democrat-controlled area comes on the heels of a budget cut to the Rochester Police Department, effective July 1.
“A busy July 4th weekend for RPD, with 13 people shot at 10 different incidents from Friday through today,” News 8 WROC reported Sunday. “Five people have been arrested thus far and there have been no fatalities reported at this time.”
