It has just been announced that New York City Police Commissioner Bill Bratton is set to resign next month amid protests over the policy of "broken windows" that was promoted and that has dramatically reduced crime in the City over the last 2-1/2 decades.
Apparently, his resignation was forced by a group known as "Millions March NYC" who, besides asking for Bratton to be fired, also wants the entire New York City police department to be defunded (literally disbanded) and the money that is saved should be invested in black and brown communities throughout the City; as well as paying reparations to those who have been wronged by police.
What do these people think would happen without a police force? It literally would be mob rule in New York City. A calling card for every crook in the country. This is insanity, and complete ignorance from, apparently, a lot of stupid people! Oh...Did I mention that they are affiliated with the morons of "Black Lives Matter"!
