And this is why those extra 500 officers is needed . To maintain safety and order in the train stations & trains .

It's the politicians

The police act on orders from their superiors, which are derived from city laws. It’s not the police, it’s the politicians who made the laws and who then act outraged as if they had nothing to do with it. Or don’t you understand that?


New York will not do anything to this man.
Santuary City.
The mayor and governor will probably give him free things courtesy of the tax payers
