Two weeks of protests and unrest in New York City after the death of George Floyd only intensified the overwhelming distrust many feel toward the New York City Police Department, the state's attorney general, Letitia James, concluded in a preliminary report. Released on Wednesday, the document, "New York City Police Department's Response to Demonstrations Following the Death of George Floyd," doesn't render a specific judgment on the performance of officers, but it does state: "It is clear that too many New Yorkers no longer trust the police to do their jobs effectively and fairly." James also said at a press

Comments:

How nice of her to make sweeping generalizations about how every individual feels about the police.

A mouthpiece for the anarchists. Who do you trust? Black lives don’t matter? Antifa? Looters and rioters? Are you suspending all rationality to the detriment of your state and community? What is your plan to secure your cities and state? Turn in into one giant CHOP Zone?! Perfect.

I doubt that this is true of more than 20% of the folks in NY, even knowing how crazy New Yorkers are.

Come on AG Letitia. Come on Goobernor Grandma Killer. Do the right thing and defund and disbanded the State Police. Don't stop with NYPD. ANd cut state funds to all police departments. Make NY great again with plenty of funded minority welfar programs. Allow the small business owners like drug runners, mules and gangs to be all they can be. Quite publishing reports that support your agenda and execute your agenda. Besides turning NY State into a minority paradise, you can allow those same minorities to reach their potential. However, once another states opens up a financial market in a state with law and order, NYC nd NY State are toast.

Thank you, Democrats!! Thank you, New York Times and your media buddies!! You have completely destroyed, through your rules and lies the perception of New Yorkers about their police. You now have some bad choices to consider: 1. Before New York had police, they had Citizen Watchmen who operated without Miranda Rights or Civilian Activists. They had enforced curfews. They were armed, with guns and clubs, and God help you if you tried to run away from them. 2. You could call in the army with orders to capture or shoot anyone breaking the law. After a while you'll run out of criminals as various elements flee the city. 3. Or you can try to rebuild the trust you squandered. You might want to try this.

All I see is ABC News. Enough for me to know its isn't so. The Police is likely the only thing they trust. Not the mayor, gov or AG.

An estimated 100 employees of Ford Motor Co. have asked the automaker to reconsider building and selling police vehicles in light of controversy related to police brutality and social justice, the Free Press confirmed late Wednesday. The issue has been raised with Ford executives by employees during at least one virtual town hall and a series of letters sent to executives since the May 25 death of George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis police. Over the past six weeks, civil rights protests have roiled the streets of Detroit and cities across the country as debate about police reform grows.

The bill also seeks to end gang databases, establish pilot programs for a universal basic income, and afford voting rights and "lifetime education" to all illegal immigrants and incarcerated criminals.

If Illinois Senator Tammy Duckworth eventually becomes Joe Biden’s vice presidential nominee, pundits and historians will look back to Independence Day weekend for the moment when her campaign jumped from insider gossip to mainstream appeal. Duckworth has long been considered an outside contender for the vice presidency.

After entering the House of Representatives in 2006 — flipping a Republican district long held by the abhorrent Henry Hyde, no less — Duckworth established herself as a progressive legislator and

The cars — backing in and out, pulling up next to each other, or idling for long stretches at a time — are a new presence here, she says. Roslik believes they’re symptomatic of an uptick in open drug use and sex trafficking — something she says is tied to an encampment of people who started gathering in the park last month. “If you sit here long enough, you’ll start
