New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio Aims to Follow the Lead of Minneapolis and Remove Police Funding

This will only make the crime situation in his city worse.

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio wants to follow the lead of Minneapolis and remove funding from law enforcement at a time when violent mobs are threatening civilization.

“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.

Billionaire Mike Bloomberg Pays $16 Million in Fines of Black and Hispanic Felons to Enable Them to Vote

Bribery?

Published

on

Billionaire and former New York City Mayor has raised $16 million dollars to pay off outstanding fines of Black and Hispanic felons in Florida, according to reporting from Axios on Tuesday. Florida restricts the voting rights of convicted criminals until they’ve paid off fines levied for their crimes by the criminal justice system.

It appears that Bloomberg’s fine repayment initative was only available to Black and Hispanic felons. Axios reported that to qualify for Bloomberg’s money, applicants had to have outstanding fines of less than $1,500, be already registered to vote, and to be Black or Latino.

White felons need not apply.

The program has reportedly already cleared the fines of 32,000 felons in the state, enabling them to vote in the election. It erases the punitive aspect of the court system’s fines, which were levied in the first place in order to require convicted criminals to personally make amends for their actions.

Bloomberg’s felon bailout giveaway is legally questionable, and Florida Congressman Matt Gaetz has requested that Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody investigate what he’s doing. If he’s paying felons to vote for any one specific candidate, Bloomberg is in violation of campaign finance rules and could be liable to serve jail time .

The right to vote is fundamental to our democracy and no American should be denied that right,” said a Bloomberg spokesperson when asked about the fine repayment initiative. But it doesn’t seem as if the failed Democratic primary candidate is willing to buy back the voting rights of individuals who might be less inclined to vote for Joe Biden in November.

Bloomberg already tried and failed to buy the nomination in the Democratic primary, and now he’s trying to buy the crucial swing state of Florida for Joe Biden. Corrupt oligarchs should not be allowed to abuse the political system with impunity.
