“We’re committed to seeing a shift of funding to youth services, to social services, that will happen literally in the course of the next three weeks, but I’m not going to go into detail because it is subject to negotiation and we want to figure out what makes sense,” the mayor said, according to a report from the New York Times published on Sunday.
De Blasio claims that he will figure out the exact terms of the budget cuts to police before the city’s budget deadline on July 1. Hundreds of current and former staffers for de Blasio have signed a letter urging him to cut at least $1 billion from the NYPD’s $6 billion annual budget.
Recently, Black Lives Matter protesters booed de Blasio when he attempted to appear in solidarity with their cause at a rally. They even turned their backs on him in a flagrant sign of disrespect.
“F— the mayor’s curfew!” the unruly mob shouted at de Blasio.
After being humiliated, de Blasio has turned even more sharply against law enforcement. His lax criminal justice policies have already caused a rash of crime throughout the city, even before the race riots began.
Big League Politics has reported on how New York City is quickly becoming a hellscape due to de Blasio’s leadership (or lack thereof):
Since 2019, New York City has experienced a considerable growth in crime.
The Daily Mail reported that major crimes rose by 22.5 percent in February according to NYPD data. This was accompanied by a 7.1 percent increase in shootings, robbery, assault, burglary, grand larceny, and grand larceny auto crimes.
According to Fox5, police are blaming criminal justice reforms for this uptick in crime.
Reports indicate that there were 16,343 major crimes reported in the first two months of 2020 compared to 13,648 during the same period in 2019. This marks an increase of 2,695.
During the first 58 days of 2020, 482 people who were previously arrested for committing felonies such as robbery or burglary were arrested again for committing an additional 846 crimes.
35 percent, or 299, of those were arrested for committing the following major crimes: Murder, rape, robbery, felony assault, burglary, grand larceny, and grand larceny auto.
Law enforcement officials claim that all of the suspects who had been arrested would have usually been incarcerated prior to the passage of new bail reform laws.
On January 1, 2020, New York State introduced comprehensive criminal justice legislation, which included the abolition of cash bail for most misdemeanors and nonviolent felonies, such as robbery.
As of now, judges are required to let individuals charged with such crimes go free without cash bail.
Anarcho-tyranny is on the way because of weak leaders like de Blasio who cave to the mob.
Greg Abbott Blasts Joe Biden for “Neanderthal Thinking” Remark, Says Illegal Immigrants are Exposing People in South Texas to COVID
The Biden presidency is a hot mess.
Texas governor Greg Abbott has blasted President Joe Biden for calling his lifting of statewide COVID-19 restrictions “Neanderthal thinking.”
Appearing on CNBC’s “Squawk Box” Thursday morning, Governor Abbott said that Biden’s “Neanderthal thinking” remark was “not the type of word that a president should be using.”
Abbott quickly added that Biden couldn’t have used that phrase “on a worse day” because of how he’s handling the illegal immigrants coming into Texas across the US-Mexico border—many of whom ostensibly have COVID and weren’t tested.
“The day he used that word, his administration has been releasing in South Texas immigrants who came across the border that they refused to test that turned out—there were more than 100 of them who had COVID,” Abbott said. “My point is this: the Biden administration has been releasing immigrants in South Texas that have been exposing Texans to COVID. Some of those people have been put on buses, taking that COVID to other states in the United States. The Biden administration must stop importing COVID into our country. That is a Neanderthal type of approach to dealing with the COVID situation.”
Governor Abbott then defended his decision to end Texas’ statewide mask mandate and allow all businesses to operate at 100 percent capacity beginning Wednesday, March 10.
“These changes that we’ve seen in Texas are not really that transformative. Maybe to people in New York it seems like this is a big difference. In Texas we went from 75 percent to 100 percent occupancy. On the mask requirement, before now there actually has not been any enforcement of the mask requirement […] We continue to make wearing a mask a suggestion and we urge all Texans to wear a mask when they’re out.”
Abbott added that Texas’ last spike occurred during Christmas and New Year’s, meaning that the increased transmission occurred because of widespread travel and indoor gatherings where people weren’t wearing masks, not because of restaurants and gyms and other businesses.
On Tuesday Mississippi governor Tate Reeves followed Texas’ lead and lifted their mask mandate and other statewide COVID-19 restrictions as well.
