New York City doesn’t want the police, at least that is what you get from the mayor and city council.
What would the streets of the largest city in the United States look like if those in Blue, the remaining physical deterrent in their moral declining culture, were to be removed?
Here are some recent headlines from the Big Apple following the city’s partial defunding of the police and closing of their plainclothes officers division.

With little support, NYPD Retirements are on the Rise. Cops Blame Anti-Police Rhetoric.
Ok NYC, here is what it looks like with just some policing and with officers who know they can only get involved when it is safe for them too and when it will not get them in trouble legally.
The New York Post is reporting, NYPD cops had a front-row seat to a five-on-one brawl — but let the violence play out rather than doing their jobs to break it up
An 11-year-old girl was slapped, punched, kicked, and even shocked with a stun gun by a group of five other girls after a basketball game around 7 p.m. Sunday on East 125th Street near Madison Avenue in Harlem.
During the roughly 4-minute beatdown, cops sat idly in nearby cruisers — but they didn’t get out until the girl was bloody and bruised, a Post photographer observed.
At least 20 police cars were nearby on the street — with at least one a little more than a car-length away, photos show.
Police sources told The Post the young girl was treated at Mount Sinai Hospital after being cut, bruised and shocked in the stomach with the stun gun. The girl told cops she didn’t know her attackers but knew two of their handles on social media, sources said.
An NYPD spokesman claimed the account witnessed by the Post photographer was “completely inaccurate.
“The officers were met by a large crowd while attempting to come to this person’s assistance. They were outnumbered. Projectiles were thrown at them. And they were forced to reposition and call every available resource in the area,” said rep Al Baker.

The hands-off approach comes as the police unions challenge a portion of NYC’s chokehold bill that makes it a misdemeanor crime to use any technique during an arrest that could limit breathing.
Top NYPD officials have also spoken out against the local reform, calling it dangerous, but have denied a slowdown — despite video leaking out from a weekly CompStat meeting capturing precinct leaders telling Chief of Department Terence Monahan that cops were “afraid” of facing charges over the law.
Over the last month, arrests have plummeted, with cops making nearly 60 percent fewer collars, according to NYPD statistics released Monday.
Cops are also pulling over fewer drivers, issuing a quarter of the normal speeding tickets — with the city’s speed cameras violation count holding steady.
As bad as this looks, what would have happened if there had been no police presence? Would the mob have killed the girl?
The reality is, crime is up, shootings way up and the police are retiring as soon as possible. So there is NO way I am visiting NYC again and I pray that those who can get out ASAP.
With De Blasio in office, it will only get worse.
