New York City—Mayor Bill de Blasio pledged Sunday to shift funding from the NYPD to support youth and social services instead. The mayor said the details would be worked out through the city budget process over the next three weeks. "We are committed to shifting resources," de Blasio said. “The investments in our youth are foundational." The mayor added that the defunding of the NYPD will be done in a way that does not compromise the safety of New Yorkers. Defunding the NYPD and redirecting those resources to youth and community programs has been one of the demands of protesters.

You know they're already figuring out ways to STEAL the money. Democrats propose new programs and services, then they get indicted for embezzlement. I wish all these protestors could only see how they're ALL being played for fools.

Have you seen the picture "when police departments are defunded: Dispatcher sitting at her desk answers the phone..Caller: Help, Someone is breaking into my house. Dispatch answers "Stay calm sir, We are sending you our thoughts and prayers right now." Might be more thuth to this then not.

Maybe BLM can respond to all the robberies, domestics and endless car wrecks. I'm sure the New Yorkers will be thrilled with their services.

One of the demands of the protesters, is to redirect resources away from the NYPD. One of demands of normal NY's is for you to resign. When are you up for election again? Next year? Good luck in your new career.

One time great city. Now? Escape from NY while you can. Wilhelm’s next move will be putting up a border wall to keep the remaining tax paying citizens from leaving a la Berlin Wall. Don’t be surprised if he tries it as the city spirals into chaos.

Play basketball while your city burns. Pay no attention to those cries of help from the racist white woman getting beaten, raped, and robbed. In fact you might stroll over after the gang leaves and see if they left anything of value on the body.

New York City, soon to become the San Francisco of the east. So sad to hear of its demise. I wonder if native New Yorkers have as much civic pride and state love as I do for my dear Tennessee. We just don't hear much about it. My late sister felt the same way about her beloved San Francisco, California, her adopted state. We'd crawl over glass to get ''home.''

Go to school and actually ingage in your own education, DO NOT hang with people who carry guns, do drugs, steal and drink too much. DO NOT have children until you are married. Get a job (sorry you f - ed up all the local jobs), any job, and continue to improve your skills so you can get a better job. Think about furthering your education. Your life will be better immediately. Not perfect, maybe not exactly what you want, but it can improve. You can live a positive life if you want. You have to meet life half way. Dear Lord this is insane. No one will ever make a point of going to NYC again. I suggest that all those in NY government immediately let their security staff go. You know, a show of good faith in this dumb ass belief that everything is going to be hearts and flowers.

This is Karma for calling the shots on every election since Rocky and Nelson was so Uniparty he'd be a rat today if he could. So enjoy what DeBlasio and cuomo have in store for you NYC voters. You and all the other morons in NY who couldn't be bothered to vote against every rat at every level, are the only reason people like this can ruin the state. I'm guessing all the smug snots who spit on anyone with a Red hat are dimly starting to miss the Rudy years a little more each day.

De Blasio and other mayors and government managers are planning for a national police force. That way they will not have to support the police organizations and get rid of police unions. A national police force is one measure to change the nation into a socialist system. The second most important step is to create a single-payer healthcare system. With control of law enforcement and healthcare you can easily control the population.
