From Manhattan To The Bronx, NYC Looted Overnight

Violence and looting continued in New York City overnight despite the implementation of an 11:00 p.m. curfew.

The Bronx, a majority-minority borough, saw widespread violence, with fires, looting and NYPD officers being attacked. Videos recorded by people on the ground were posted all over social media.

Cell phone video that has gone viral showed a sergeant struck at the intersection of Walton Avenue and East 170th Street in Tremont.

In a separate incident in The Bronx, an officer was assaulted in front of a store on East Fordham Road and East Tiebout Avenue. The attack was caught on camera, with the video posted on the Sergeants Benevolent Association’s Twitter account.

Borough President Ruben Diaz, Jr. released a statement on Twitter overnight in response to the violence.

“This is not who we are, we are better than this! This is not how we seek justice! What we saw on Fordham Rd. only detracts from our message of racial justice & our calls for police reform,” said Diaz, Jr. “Such actions are not consistent with keeping the memory & legacy of those we fight for alive.”

Meanwhile, Manhattan, Midtown especially, was ravaged by looting overnight, which included Macy’s flagship store in Herald Square.

While the NYPD failed to contain the rioters, they were efficient earlier in the day in escorting Orthodox Jews out of a Brooklyn park.

Over the weekend, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio’s (D) daughter, Chiara, was arrested for participating in one of the riots.

The Mayor commented on a peaceful protest in Brooklyn but didn’t offer any remarks on the chaos in other parts of the city overnight.

Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani (R) took to Twitter to call out the current officeholder.

“Mayor de Blasio needs to step down,” Giuliani wrote. “He is incompetent. We are losing a tremendous amount of property. We are seeing people damaged and hurt. Pretty soon, we’re going to lose lives if this man doesn’t get out of the way and let someone activate the police department!”

Before addressing the nation Monday night, President Donald Trump told the nation’s governors that they need to take control of their states, particularly their major cities.

“You have to arrest people and you have to try people. And they have to go to jail for long periods of time,” Pres. Trump said.

Under New York’s bail reform laws, almost all of the people who were arrested for looting will be released without bail, the NYPD told Fox News.

Health Industry Distributors’ Association: Supply Chain Delays ‘A Healthcare Issue’

Published

supply chain

The Health Industry Distributors’ Association (HIDA) released harrowing data stating “Transportation Delays Are A Healthcare Issue.” HIDA’s December release states, “research estimates that approximately 8,000-12,000 containers of critical medical supplies are delayed an average of up to 37 days throughout the transportation system.”

The statement continues, “The West Coast port with the greatest number of delayed medical containers are the Ports of Long Beach and Los Angeles. The most congested East Coast port is the Port of Savannah.”

An infographic is accompanied with the statement which breaks down the crisis further. 17 is the average number of days the shipments are delayed at the Port. There’s an 11 day average delay by rail, and a 9 day average delay by truck.

In those shipping containers, the infographic states 187,000 gowns, 360,000 syringes and 3.5 million surgical gloves are held. The ports with the most medical delayed supplies are Los Angeles/Long Beach, Savannah, New York/New Jersey, Charleston, Seattle, Oakland, Boston, Baltimore and Houston.

Axios reports under a “Why it matters” headline, that “Per their projections, medical supplies arriving at a U.S. port on Christmas Day won’t be delivered to hospitals and other care settings until February 2022.”

As a result, “that could delay critical supplies at a time when health care is already expected to most need them due to surges from Delta and Omicron.”

Additionally, “The supply chain problems can compound, starting with medical supplies languishing in U.S. ports for an average of 17 days, officials said.”
