De Blasio Plans To Cut NYPD Budget By $1 Billion As NYC Shootings Spike 

15

Mayor Bill de Blasio said Monday that he’s come up with a plan to cut or transfer $1 billion from the NYPD’s $6 billion budget and would not guarantee the department’s headcount won’t shrink — even as shootings surge across the city.

“I’m excited to say we have a plan that can achieve real reform, that can achieve real redistribution — while at the same time ensure that we keep our city safe, while we make sure that our officers are on patrol around where we need them around this city,” de Blasio said during his daily City Hall press briefing.

De Blasio and the City Council must reach an $87 billion budget deal by Tuesday that would cut expected spending by an estimated $8 billion overall. The plan to slash the NYPD budget comes as gun violence has surged across the Big Apple.

  1. Where did dumbo Deblasio find his plan. In which toilet. Cut the police and 911 operators and you can wait two days for a bank robbery response. They will send a therapist to talk to bank bandits. Sick and getting sicker.

  2. In the video in the link to the NY Post, de Blasio says the plan would achieve 1 billion in savings for the NYPD. What a liar! Such a coward that he can’t call it what it is, a cut of 1 billion. “Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who present darkness as light and light as darkness..”

  3. All elected officials are representatives of the electorate. Pogo saith, “we have seen the enemy and he is us”.

  4. Trump wants to cancel the health insurance for 23 million Americans in the middle of a pandemic.

    De Blasio wants to cut police in the middle of skyrocketing crime rates.

    Oh and both spout racist nonsense.

    There is no difference between Trump and De Blasio.

    • Charlie Chaplin 4:03pm, honestly?! Are you having a traumatic brain injury, or you really believe in all the nonsense you just spewed? You, sir, are a certifiable Dumbrat clown.

    • Lie. President Trump never attempted to cut insurance from anyone. Do you get your jollies by always trying to throw in outrageous lie’s about a sitting President which has nothing to do with the discussion at hand?

  5. Well, some of our self-appointed leaders told us to vote Dumborat. All democretins should be expelled from our community.
