Violent crime has skyrocketed in New York City in recent months.
He and the city council transferred the money to bloated education and human services bureaucracies.
On Tuesday, security cameras caught a brutal Bronx incident in which a man attacked a 21-year-old woman — allegedly his ex-girlfriend — placed her in a chokehold and stabbed her repeatedly. As he assaulted her, he knocked her infant child in a stroller onto the pavement.

As the “defund the police” movement picks up steam in Democratic-controlled cities, innocent mothers and children have been victims.
They are the collateral damage of a radical movement determined to sow chaos in American cities. Working class and poorer communities that can’t afford private security are suffering the most because of this movement.
In fact, residents of communities such as East Harlem have called the idea of defunding the police “suicide.”
The Police Benevolent Association of the City of New York described it best in a tweet showing a typical night in Harlem when law enforcement’s hands are tied.
“This is what a “light touch” looks like: Police officers responding to a shots fired job in Harlem last night were met with this. @NYCMayor, @NYCSpeakerCojo and company should be held responsible for surrendering our city.”

The New York mayor and city council have surrendered their city indeed. And young men such as the one in the Bronx are taking advantage of that political negligence.
New York City no longer is safe for families with children.
