American Civics traditionally requires that our elected officials are competent, honorable transparent with a form of fiduciary responsibility to their constituents.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, U.S. Representative for New York’s 14th congressional district, doesn’t meet any of the aforementioned qualities but instead acts like a teenager, spouting out whatever comes to he mind.
For the past 18 months, she has built up quite the “video reel” of her blunders and even she even managed to prevent Amazon from bringing thousands of jobs to her district and billions of dollars of investment into the community.
Her latest crusade has been to need to defend the police and establish a new form of city policing. Since NYC Mayor Bill De Blasio, reduced the NYPD budget 1 Billion dollars and implemented heavy restriction of what the police can and can’t do when dealing with criminals, and the police commissioner removed his neighbor, plain-clothed officers, off the streets, the crime stats have gone through the roof. A direct correlation between criminals and law enforcement. Less Law Enforcement, more criminal activity.
No for AOC, she brilliantly figured our the real reason crimes are way up.
We finally know why crime is soaring in New York City.
“Um, maybe it’s the fact that unemployment provisions have not been given to everyone,” Ocasio-Cortez claimed. “Maybe it’s because the fact that people haven’t — some people still haven’t gotten their stimulus checks yet.”
Apparently, in Ocasio-Cortez’s world, anyway, these hungry bread-stealers are heavily armed. Shootings in New York City have soared by 205% in the weeks since NYPD disbanded its anti-crime unit of plainclothes cops, which occurred on June 15.
During the final two weeks of June, three times as many shootings occurred in New York City as there were during the same period in 2019, according to the New York Post. Between June 15 and July 2, there were 116 shootings in the city, compared to just 38 during the same two-week period last year. A total of 157 New Yorkers were wounded in gunfire this year, compared to just 57 wounded in the period in 2019.
Chalk up another “I am clueless” video for AOC’s archives. No, it’s not people out looking for bread, it is the fact that criminals know the police can’t and some will not do much about smaller crimes. anymore. In some areas, with the reduction in police presence, the hardened criminals are once again taking over the streets.
Please voters in New York’s 14th congressional district, put AOC out her misery, and ours too, and elect ANYONE to replace her, preferably a conservative.
