Video footage has emerged of a father in New York City, walking down the street in broad daylight, holding his daughter’s hand… and being gunned down in a senseless, vile, evil, base act of murder.
Thanks to democrat leadership, the city is now as lawless jungle, many people argue. The shooting occurred in the district ‘led’ by Alexandria Ocasio Cortez and the city run by Bill de Blasio, and it is not the first horrific act of murder in the past few days.
Video showed Anthony Robinson, 29, with his daughter on their way back home to Brooklyn from the Bronx in New York, according to local reports. Surveillance video shows a car pull up alongside them and open fire. The girl runs while Robinson collapses onto the street.
ABC 7 NY reported that he was pronounced dead at a nearby hospital.
The girl was unharmed.
“Mr. Robinson isn’t the only victim of that crime,” he said. “That young girl is the victim of that crime, that community in the northeast part of the 4-4 Precinct is also a victim of that murder,” Chief Jason Wilcox told the New York Times. Authorities are offering a $10,000 reward.
Police unions have blamed the spike in crime on Mayor Bill de Blasio and Council Speaker Corey Johnson, who last week passed an annual budget that shifted about $1 billion away from the NYPD, a move aimed at meeting activists’ demands for police reform.
“Criminals with guns fear no consequences,” the Police Benevolent Association tweeted, adding that the mayor, speaker “and all electeds” “owe their constituents an explanation.”
The video, released by NYPD Chief of Detectives Rodney Harrison, shows the father and daughter walking hand-in-hand when a car pulls up and arm extends out the passenger’s window, gun in hand.

The father then collapses to the ground, indicating that he has been shot. The six-year-old daughter can be seen running for her life after he father goes down.
