You Won't Believe What de Blasio's Wife Just Told Citizens To Do
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio had the brilliant idea last year to bow down to the BLM movement. He went as far as painting a big street mural and of course cut the police budget by a billion dollars. So now New Yorkers are seeing a spike in crime since they decided to back a rioting mob, over the people that protect them. To counteract this sudden rise in crime, de Blasio's wife, Chirlane McCray, is practically deputizing New Yorkers telling them they need to get out there and watch out for each other. Mind you New York does not allow anyone to carry guns.
"Shootings in New York City doubled in 2020 and were up 75 percent last month compared to a year prior. Burglaries have also increased, and violent, unprovoked crimes against Asians have become endemic."
McCray tweeted about her brilliant plan to unofficially deputized New Yorkers.
"As attacks on Asian American communities continue, we’re asking New Yorkers to show up for their neighbors and intervene when witnessing hateful violence or harassment. I know that can be frightening when you aren’t sure what to do or say, but you can learn."
McCray "suggested that witnesses step into the middle of a “hate crime or incident” and engage directly with the person who is being targeted by asking a question like, “What time is it?”
She also advised that witnesses “respond directly to the aggressor or physically intervene and only after assessing the situation. Be confident, assertive, calm. This is risky, but sometimes all we can do is speak up.”
They could also “support a person in crisis by recording on your phone” and “check-in with the survivor after the incident. This shows them that they are valued.”
This is how you add additional victims to a crime. Mayor de Blasio screwed over his constituents when he pandered to "the defund the police" movement. He made New York less safe for everyone by removing a very effective deterrent. Police do more than just arrest people and hand out tickets, when they patrol an area it makes it safer. But de Blasio chose to buckle to the BLM protests last year, instead of doing what is best for his constituents. McCray is just making the situation worse. If they really wanted to do something to help New Yorkers they would allow them to carry guns. Criminals would think twice about messing with armed citizens.
