Bill de Blasio Confirms $1 Billion Cut from NYPD Budget

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio (D) confirmed Monday that he will slash $1 billion from the budget of the New York City Police Department (NYPD), despite a surge in shootings in the wake of protests and violent unrest sparked by the death of George Floyd.

“I am excited to say that we have a plan that can achieve real reform, that can achieve real redistribution, and at the same time ensure that we keep our city safe,” De Blasio told reporters, according to Politico.

“Everything was with an eye to safety, so we will be able to ensure the patrol strength we need. We will be able to ensure that school safety can do its job. The school safety issue would be addressed over several years,” the mayor continued.

“I was skeptical at first, and wanted to see how it could all come together,” he added. “A lot of painstaking work occurred to figure out the right way to do things.”

  1. Why doesn’t Gov.Cuomo just fire Deblasio . Hes done nothing but stir up more controversy than anyone . All he has done is turn his back on the police . He has done nothing for anybody .

  2. Deblasio is an idiot. All he’s done for his city is getting seniors killed by telling nursing homes they must admit covid19 patients even after Trump made available thousands of beds and fully staffed with people who were capable to handle covid19 patients. Now he’s holding 1billion dollars from the police, how are the citizens going to protect themselves. I guarantee that he doesn’t defund his own personal security. No put everyone else in danger but keep himself safe. That asshole needs to be gone

  3. I wonder how many New Yorkers are headed to their local gun stores?
    New York City is about to become another Sodom and Gomorrah.
    It would not surprise me if DeBlahblah gets knocked off by the very people he’s pandering to . . .

    1. The police commissioner should reassign all law enforcement assigned to ‘protect’ political figures as “not in the budget”. I bet that will get DeBlahblah’s attention.
