Re: NY: No place but New York City

Mayor De Blasio agrees to cut $1 billion from New York police budget

https://thehill.com/homenews/state-watc ... ice-budget
The mayor said that his office's proposal included $500 million intended to go towards youth centers and New York City Housing Authority developments.

De Blasio's proposal also calls for moving schools safety agents, which wear police uniforms, to the Department of Education and canceling a July class of about 1,100 new recruits.
Meanwhile, back in a little place I like to call The Real World, the NYPD reports that, for the month of May, murders are up by 79%, shootings up by 64%, and burglaries up by 34%. Over the past week alone, there was a 342% (not a typo) increase in shootings over the same period in 2019, and a 414% increase in the number of people shot. There were 38 shooting victims within a 72-hour period over the weekend.

But take heart all ye frightened New Yorkers, whose economy won't recover for years to come. De Blasio will move a half billion dollars from the police to new basketball courts at youth centers. That's certain to keep you safer than having more and better-trained law enforcement officers.

Criminal Justice system imploding. Homicides hit 5 year high. 24 percent increase in murders.
The answer? Defund the police, of course.
