New York City isn’t exactly known for being the safest city in the world. You often hear stories of muggings and crime and this and that, which is why law enforcement is necessary.
It at least tells the bad guys there will be consequences to their actions.
However, like a good Democrat, the wife of NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio doesn’t see it that way. She apparently feels that all crime will disappear if cops aren’t around anymore.
Chirlane McCray -the wife of Mayor Bill de Blasio and First Lady of New York City- weighed-in Wednesday on the nationwide movement to defund police departments; describing a cop-free NYC as a “nirvana” and “utopia.”
Chirlane backed a “mental health scheme” that has now cost taxpayers $850 million. Good thing it wasn’t an even $1 billion, huh?
From Daily Mail:
Bill de Blasio’s wife Chirlane McCray cannot explain where $850million given to the mental health program she champions has gone, according to reports.
In the three years it has been running, organizers at ThriveNYC have largely failed to keep records of the initiative’s achievements – and data that has been collected shows it lagging well behind targets.
Despite that, the program has been granted an even bigger budget going forward and is now on track to spend $1billion over five years.
