Stop and Frisk works, but certain “people” get offended, so let’s not do that anymore, let’s take away the anti-crime unit, defund the police & shut down Rikers Island.

ANOTHER racist Trump lover?!

Stop ‘n frisk had an 8% arrest rate. Cost the city MILLIONS in taxpayer money to pay for the overtime and lawsuits. Crime didn’t go down.

The tax ‘n spend right wants to spend more money on it. Kind of the like $15 billion for the wall

DeBlasio city 🐀

Bail reform, defund the police , all that negatively against the NYPD . Let the NYPD do their job, lock up the criminals. Why would anyone want to shut down Rikers Island ? But Mayor DeBlasio wants to please a certain community. It’s not working, Vision Zero is not working, the homeless situation is out of control. Let it be known that all of this is happening on Mayor Bill DeBlasio watch. Blame Mayor Bill DeBlasio and his policies, his goons for turning the city upside down.

That has nothing to do with the article... 🤷‍♂️

He’s not eligible for bail reform and the NYPD haven’t been defunded by a penny yet.

Did you copy/paste this on purpose? Just kidding it’s a bot. Makes this comment on every post.
