If you are a resident of NYC and are fearful for the safety of you and your loved ones…bail out, scram, take a powder and leave for safer environs before the next Mayoralty election coming up in November. Last year’s murder rate in the Big Apple zoomed up 43% over 2019’s horrific figures and with the certainty of another Democrat occupying City Hall in 2022, a safe bet would be a continued rise in civilians slaughtering civilians.
Why is this so? Why the lack of reality on the part of our local biggees to understand the crisis our citizens face daily. Our current mayor may have his face mask on too high and cannot see reality when he boasts that his city is the “safest big city in America.” Nonsense. His own appointee, NYPD Police Commissioner, Dermot Shea, came clean back in June, 2021, with his statement: “You have to step back and look at this. You have a criminal-justice system that is imploding!” He’s on the mark, but from the lips of the crowd of Hizzoner Wannabees, that are vying for the top seat, they all see it differently. “It’s the cops!” they scream out. “They are the problem,” they tell ordinary citizens who shudder and push their kids under kitchen tables when they hear gunshots in our Wild West streets.
Andrew Yang wants to hold police “accountable” because of their civil rights violations in arresting culprits too vigorously but at the same time accuses them of “not doing their jobs hard enough.” Figure that one out. Scott Stringer and Ray McGuire both want to defund the police and hire mental-health practitioners to answer 911 calls involving mentally-ill criminals. Good luck! Shaun Donovan claims the problem is the police perform too military-like and are overly armed. Is he aware that Our Finest suffered nearly 500 injuries during the George Floyd riots and a total of nearly 2,000 during the year?
Maya Wiley, our mayor’s former legal counsel promises that she, “will bring the police to heel!” She is a black activist and along with the other candidates for mayor, support the Black Lives Matter Movement (BLM), who marched through the streets of the city chanting, “What do we want? Dead cops!” and, “What do we want, pigs in blankets!” The call from these domestic terrorists is for cops to be targeted and killed, yet none of these politicos have had the guts to call them out for their blatant criminal speech. Rather they prostitute themselves and support them merely for their votes.
NYC is plunging into disaster. Over 300,000 known residents have left for Covid-19, physical safety precautionary reasons and to avoid soaring taxes. The vacuum they and the ongoing stream of other “fleers” will create will be hard to fill. And from what we can gather from any of those politicians running to govern New York City, none have a clue of how to win them back. For them to continue to bash New York’s Finest is, in our minds, total lunacy. NYC is on the brink with no happy ending in sight.
