is anyone else worried about the longterm ramifications of this anti-police culture we are living in? I hope this doesn't continue much longer. I'm not sure what can change to reverse this trend.

I can't imagine that crime will actually rise b/c police departments really aren't making much of a change. Those that are making changes - there are cities that have already reallocated funds from police departments to other social services and crime is actually down.

I’ve been worried since some of them are able to obtain info about ppl that help the police to apprehend them (go back to the scene of the crime, etc). Since some were released because of covid. Since masks can help them hide their face, and now this anti police thing...Chat Icon

Yes. I’m concerned for sure.
Reading news articles on my social media and it’s one after another. Today was one from CBS - something like 20 shootings in NYC alone this past weekend. a police cruiser was shot in the Bronx. They don’t know if the cop was targeted or if it was a stray bullet.

Less police = more trouble. Criminals are salivating over this.

Yes. Reasons to get out of NY if you can. I really wish we can but my husbands work is here either way we would leave. Murder and burglaries are up and its just the beginning

Actually, crime has already risen. New York City shootings over the last seven days skyrocketed by 142 percent compared with the same time period in 2019, from just 26 last year to 63 in 2020. It's happening in a lot of the major cities. I just hope the trend doesn't continue.

Of course. This is what happens when you make your police force stand down. People do whatever TF they want , without concern for being arrested. The tax base (rich white folks) have left the building. Their dollars are being spent elsewhere. The city is going to go broke.
