The defund the police movement has made cities unlivable. Witness today’s attack on a NYC subway.
How does black-on-black murder rates in the major cities (think Chicago) compare to the number of blacks killed needlessly and negligently by police officers? The former is a very big number, while the latter is miniscule by comparison, yet the liberal press harps on the the latter and largely ignores the former.
Which of course doesn’t mean we shouldn’t investigate and condemn blacks killed by police needlessly and negligently, but which is the more serious problem — statistically?
Yes, the black community is justified in their concern about unjustified, discriminatory treatment by police, but I would argue their biggest concern, by far, should be gang violence and violence with regard to the drug trade.
Trump gets police endorsement.
Blue lives matter.
The collapse of an American city — Chicago is gone. Is New York City next? They have a Democrat mayor who is very anti-police. You suppress the police, the NYPD, in New York and the long knives will come out in the streets. This mayor just disbanded the undercover cops. He has no idea what he is doing. No idea what he is unleashing… These left-wing politicians have such a fairy tale view of reality, a reality that doesn’t include what is happening now in Chicago. Glad I don’t live in NYC anymore. It has a very bleak future imo. Back to the grim days of the 70s with lots of street crime and violence. Getting knifed in the subway for the change in your pocket. Remember Bernie Goetz? That’s where NYC is headed. With the police backing off, you are left to fend for yourself — there’s no other choice. No thanks, not for me, bye bye NY, was nice knowing ya.
This is what happens with no police. This is the future for New York City and other cities.
Don’t see any self-righteous demonstrations after this kind of thing.
Here comes the spiral downhill for New York City. Another Democratic mayor destroys a once prosperous and flourishing city. Slow-motion train wreck that’s speeding up now. New York City becoming another Chicago.
How many good cops have quit because of the backlash against police? Our loss.
I don’t remember a single instance when there was a demonstration against unjustified police brutality when a white man was killed — not one, even though there have been, no doubt, many such cases. I guess it means that white lives don’t matter. Or does it mean that such a case doesn’t help the Left play the racist card so it has little value?
