NYC Mayor Lets Rage Run Amok, Leads Crack Down on Peaceful Religious Group

New York City Mayor Bill De Blasio seems content to let rage run amok in the wake of the death of George Floyd, yet leads a crackdown on Orthodox Jews, a peaceful religious group. Are the voters of NYC still happy with a mayor who looks the other way as a 92-year-old woman gets punched in the head and knocked to the ground?

UPDATE: Since this was recorded, the NYPD now says the "poisoning" of three officers -- reported by two police unions -- came from no criminal intent, but may have resulted from improper cleaning procedures that failed to fully rinse the shake machine.

Mayor Promises $1 Billion NYPD Cuts, Budget Shift Toward Youth

June 29 2020

NEW YORK CITY — Mayor Bill de Blasio promised $1 billion in NYPD cuts in an upcoming budget that would redistribute the funds to youth programs.

De Blasio's announcement on Monday responded to a demand — to an exact dollar figure he previously wouldn't commit to — by police brutality protesters after weeks of citywide demonstrations following the killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis.

But he also declined to give details on where the proposed cuts will come from in the NYPD. Those will be hashed out by City Hall, the City Council and everyone else at the negotiating table ahead of a Tuesday budget deadline, he said.
