De Blasio paints another Black Lives Matter mural, as shootings plague NYC


Quote:Mayor Bill de Blasio rolled up his shirtsleeves to paint another Black Lives Matter mural on a city street Thursday, but offered no solutions to tackle rising crime as 10 more New Yorkers were shot in The Bronx, Manhattan and Brooklyn in just the last two days.

De Blasio grabbed a roller to fill in the yellow letters spelling out the movement’s slogan on Jamaica Avenue near 150th Street in Queens. He also posed for photos with constituents under a street sign at Jamaica Avenue and 153rd Street that was renamed “Black Lives Matter Avenue.”

The mural painting was the only public event on Hizzoner’s public schedule Thursday aside from his daily press briefing where he failed to even mention the 10 people shot in eight incidents across the city Tuesday and Wednesday.

Instead de Blasio attacked The Post after being asked about an article that debunked his claims tying the crime surge to a coronavirus-induced courts slowdown.

This week’s gunfire victims include a 24-year-old man hit in the arm in Claremont Village in The Bronx just after midnight Tuesday, a 34-year-old man shot in the leg in Harlem around 6:00 p.m. Wednesday, and a 26-year-old man struck later that night in Sunset Park. The city’s seen a 72 percent jump in shooting incidents compared to last year.

De Blasio has participated in several BLM mural projects including the most controversial one on Fifth Avenue in front of Trump Tower.

He defended the Fifth Avenue painting even after Rep. Peter King (R-NY) said the move hampered his delegation’s efforts to get fellow GOP senators to give federal aid to cities.

“It was exactly the right thing to do to paint that mural and we’re going to keep sending that message constantly that Black Lives Matter in New York City,” de Blasio said at Thursday’s briefing.

“They need to matter all over the country. That has nothing to do with the stimulus,” he said.
