De Blasio is digging the city’s grave.
AN AUTONOMOUS ZONE IN NYC WAS CREATED AT THE INVITATION OF THE MAYOR.
THE ONE IN SEATTLE JUST HAD ITS SECOND MURDER, NOT TO MENTION SHOOTINGS, BEATINGS, LOOTINGS, EXTORTION, BURNINGS…LAWLESSNESS!
ISN’T GROSS INCOMPETENCE ENOUGH FOR GOV. CUOMO TO REMOVE HIM?

Hundreds of protesters are camping outside City Hall in lower Manhattan to press for cuts to the New York Police Department’s budget, part of a nationwide movement calling for drastic overhauls of local police forces.
The encampment, which began last week at City Hall Park, comes after more than a month of large-scale protests sparked by the death of George Floyd. Mr. Floyd was killed in police custody on May 25 in Minneapolis, setting off protests demanding police reform and defunding of local police departments.
The New York City Council and Mayor Bill de Blasio are still negotiating the coming fiscal year’s budget, including NYPD funding. The council is expected to vote Tuesday on the budget.
