New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio just shut it down. The New York Police Department (NYPD) is completely stunned by this move — the anti-Trump socialist is showing his true colors again.
According to Breitbart News, de Blasio “confirmed Monday that he will slash $1 billion from the budget of the New York City Police Department,” even though this is the worst time to cut police budgets.
There has been “a surge in shootings in the wake of protests and violent unrest sparked by the death of George Floyd,” yet the far-left mayor is appeasing the likes of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY).
Of course, Ocasio-Cortez has gone a step further and called for the NYPD to be fully defunded. This has become the primary push of BLM, Antifa, and Marxist politicians. New Yorkers need to push back.
It won’t end with $1 billion cut from the NYPD and redistributed somewhere else. Eventually, de Blasio will give in to the demands of these radical groups and one of the world’s greatest cities will crumble.
“In the last nine days, 110 people have reportedly been shot in the Big Apple,” continued Breitbart’s report. This should serve as a warning to the city’s residents that leftists cannot get their way on police.
