Like Mayor Bill de Blasio, Governor Cuomo’s policies support criminals. That is because they represent votes for him. President Trump and the Republican Party must make a concerted effort to find candidates who can rescue the state of New York and New York City from the Left.

NYPD chief of department speaks out, ‘outraged’ at Gov. Andrew Cuomo
By New York Post, June 6, 2020
The NYPD’s top uniformed cop talked to The Post in an exclusive interview Tuesday about how his cops have been “giving their blood” as they’ve responded to protests that have become increasingly violent over the past five days and raged against Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s criticism of his department.
Chief Terence Monahan said he had slept for only three hours since the fifth night of protests and that all his guys are “cut up” from struggling with troublemakers in the city.
“Our guys are tired, they’re bleeding,” Monahan said. “I think everyone you’re going to see is walking around cut up. But they’re out there again tonight. They’re out there giving their blood to keep this city safe.”
Despite the cops’ efforts, “just about all” of those arrested will be back out on the streets because of bail reform, Monahan said, noting that some people arrested for guns might remain behind bars.
“But when it comes to a burglary, which is a commercial store, which is looting, they’re back out,” he said. “Because of bail reform, you’re back out on the street the next day. You cannot be held on any sort of bail. I spoke to (Manhattan District Attorney) Cy Vance about that. He told me there was nothing he could do.”
Asked about Cuomo’s comments that the NYPD wasn’t doing its job, Monahan, who joined the department 38 years ago, said he was “extremely outraged.”
“I’m watching my men and women out there dealing with stuff that no cop should ever have to deal with, bricks, bottles, rocks,” he said. “Hit in the face with bottles and continuing to go forward to make an arrest.”
Monahan praised the NYPD leadership for being out in the street with their men.
“This leadership team from every angle of this department is out on the streets, working side by side with their men, and for a governor to be sitting in his office saying that we’re not doing a good job — I’m outraged,” he charged.
