White Supremacists running rampant around NYC randomly attacking everyone!
Perhaps the Politicians should focus on crime and mental health instead of false racial issues and pandering for votes.

This is the same neighborhood that held protests against the police and marches to “defund” the police but now cry for more police. Comedy.

Dumbocrats & Lying Liberals.

Is this a joke? More police? What happened to all the holier than though “YT” people marching down Austin Street and occupying 112pct chanting “DEFUND!” and abolish police? Enjoy your lawlessness and absentee guidance counselors / social workers.
