Life in the People’s Republic of New York City under Mayor-Chairman Bill DeBlasio has just gotten worse.
Fox News reports: “As the city and police prepare to tackle homelessness, two recent violent attacks highlight the urgency to go after the issue as soon as possible. There have been two attacks by homeless people in recent days. One of them involved a 72 year-old architect waiting at a corner, stabbed in the neck with a pair of scissors by a homeless woman. The other attack was on a tourist leaving his Grand Central hotel. He was clubbed in the face by a homeless man.”
This is what happens when one compels one’s police to abandon the “quality of life” policing policies put in force by Mayor Giuliani which made life in the Big Apple at least somewhat tolerable for a time. Of course all those policies are being abandoned for being “racist” and “fascist” and not respecting the rights of the homeless and crazy.
“From City Hall to Police Plaza, a real and effective solution to violent homelessness is being sought.”
Since most of these people are in fact either mentally ill or have drug and alcohol problems, has anyone considered locking them up? Oh wait, the liberals think that’s too cruel and mean and the crushing costs of supporting all the non-White freeloaders has taken away the money that used to support lunatic asylums for the crazy so they wind up back out on the streets, where they can club people and stab them with scissors.
“Over the next 12 months, the NYPD will put one third of its officers through intensive training to better handle the homeless problem. But city officials say they are handcuffed when it comes to handling this non-criminal crisis.”
“Police Commissioner Bratton says we can’t arrest our way out of this problem. The revolving door of arrest has led the police commissioner to coin the term: ‘service resistant.’’ Those current policies fail to improve conditions for the homeless. Pointing out that nothing on homelessness appears on Google before the 70’s. That’s when the city emptied out it’s alcohol and drug centers… Along with mental health facilities.”
Where did they think these people would wind up? Would you feel comfortable hiring one of them? Nobody wants to, and the people, who try, often regret it.
“As large as the problem has grown, and given 4 decades to do so, city officials are optimistic policy changes to be announced soon and policing training will improve what we experience on the streets, in a meaningful way.”
America is becoming a Third World country with no money left after paying off all the Democrat voters/welfare recipients. Instead of sending hopeless druggies to institutions to dry out or locking up the hopelessly insane in asylums, we just dump them on the streets, where they occasionally stab an architect in the neck with a pair of scissors.
