Mayor Bill de Blasio is perhaps the worst mayor in U.S history. He is a disgrace.

NYPD says more than 300 police vehicles damaged since George Floyd death

By Washington Examiner, July 28, 2020

The New York Police Department said 303 of its vehicles have been damaged during protests since George Floyd’s death.

The NYPD announced on Monday that the damage to the vehicles totaled nearly $1 million in value. The department confirmed to the Washington Examiner on Tuesday that 14 of the vehicles were totaled because of fire damage, seven are in the process of being repaired, and the others are already back in service.

An NYPD spokeswomen said the damage total came to $996,700.

People were injured in New York early on in the nationwide protests that broke out following the death of Floyd, a black man who died after being filmed pinned to the ground by a white police officer. The protests soon morphed from outrage over Floyd’s death into broader calls for police reform.

At the height of the unrest in June, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio announced a curfew for the city.

“The demonstrations we’ve seen have been generally peaceful,” de Blasio said at the time. “We can’t let violence undermine the message of this moment. It is too important, and the message must be heard.”
