Skip to comments.$1.5B in NYPD cuts not enough for AOC: ‘Defunding police means defunding police’

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said Tuesday the proposed $1.5 billion NYPD budget slash didnt go far enough.
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 Educations budget so the exact same police remain in schools, the self-described Democratic Socialist said in a press release about the budget deal between the City Council and Mayor de Blasio.
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. The fight to defund policing continues, she said.
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 said.
Mainstream Democrats and progressives have argued over the meaning of the effort to defund the police following the death of George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis cops.
The deal Ocasio-Cortez was referring to would cut the number of officers in the city by canceling its July class of 1,163 cadets.

I’m rooting for her to get mugged and maybe worse. She may transform into a conservative.
The movie “The Warriors” was a documentary.

A popular position in the dangerous idiot community.
If they do succeed in abolishing the police, how many murders do you think there will be before anybody does anything?
Defund the criminals.
I love AOC.
Just do it. No pensions either.
The Warriors meets Idiocracy.
I really don’t understand the logic of the democrats with this ridiculous movement and idea. They are going to pretty much frame the election over an issue that they will lose on.
This is insane. Imagine a world without police! It is hard to believe even 5% of the country will support getting rid of the police. If we did not have to clean up the mess and it would not harm so many people I almost wish they could try it out as an experiment the rest of us could judge from afar.
why isn’t AOC camping at the NY Chaz? the Nazz.
where they all bleet like sheep
AOCs most effective form of communication is Interpretive dance.
What do you think shes trying to say with this dance?
Well, she either wants to defund the police or she just sharted.
Defunding law enforcement is a stupid idea. And this is a hill AOC is foolish enough to die on.
Follow the drug money.
AOC won her primary with 70% of the vote. It boggles the mind that so many people want an idiot to represent them.
Britt Hume was on Tucker tonight and thoroughly ripped the BLM movement. It was epic.
Someone take one for the tenant slap the piss out of that creature
Watching Tucker now.
Seriously - Trump just needs to frame the election as a vote for a Republican is a vote for law and order. A vote for a democrat is a vote for anarchy.
Game. Set. Match.
It's simple. These people have been given over to a reprobate mindset. No common sense . . . and are being willfully channeled by satan.
