This is the kind of person she really is…
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez recently showed her true colors when talking about the cuts from the NYPD. The budget has been cut by around $1 billion to $1.5 billion and she is still not happy.
Ocasio-Cortez stated, “Defunding police means defunding police. It does not mean budget tricks or funny math. It does not mean moving school police officers from the NYPD budget to the Department of Education’s budget so the exact same police remain in schools.”
“It does not mean counting cuts in overtime as cuts, even as NYPD ignores every attempt by City Council to curb overtime spending and overspends on overtime anyways. If these reports are accurate, then these proposed ‘cuts’ to the NYPD budget are a disingenuous illusion. This is not a victory. The fight to defund policing continues.”
She basically wants police to be non-existent. When asked what America would look like with a defunded police, she said, “The good news is that it actually doesn’t take a ton of imagination. It looks like a suburb.”
She must be in her own world because a defunded police world especially in New York City would look like a broken down city with people doing whatever they wanted because there would be no consequences.
