Additionally @Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez , your response overlooks the main points: policing (morale) and penalty reduction fueling recidivism. Why have NYPD retirement filings exploded by 41%? That’s already happening.
So ... there is an increase in crime before you cut the budget and you still supporting cutting the budget? Great logic there, Ms. Westchester. Also, before you reach for a weak reed of ergo decedo, I'm not a spokeswoman for anyone but myself.
Crime is up because you and others pushed for a reduction in both policing and penalities. Also, whenever you want to talk about poverty, I’m happy to tell you about how hard it was for my single mom and me when I was growing up — and it wasn’t in tony *Westchester.*
