New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said he has proposed a plan for the city to cut $1 billion from the NYPDs nearly $6 billion budget, according to officials and multiple reports.
De Blasios announcement falls in line with city council leaders calls for the billion-dollar cut to the police departments budget. The Democratic mayor revealed details of his proposal during a Monday morning press conference.
He said his office presented the plan to City Council over the weekend and called this a moment where we have to address profound issues. We need to redistribute revenue to communities that need it the most.
He emphasized that plan is still under negotiation and officials had not reached a final agreement.

Shootings are already way up.
NYC wants to rival Chicago for the title of most dangerous city.
I assume this is after The Nation came out against him for his cowardice in not cutting the NYPD budget.
Will anyone argue with me that this piece of excrement is not mentally ill? And most of the libtard/gay City Council, as well?
Line from The Enforcer is appropriate here:
“By the “minority community,”
you’re talking about the hoods?”
De Bozo is insane.
NYC will be systematically destroyed by the BLM/antifa/George Soros mob!
If, after “NYC Burning” is over, Conservatives are put in office to fix things again, there may be an upside to this dumbass move!
Yet another reason to NEVER ELECT A DEMOCRAT TO PUBLIC OFFICE!
AS IF WE NEED ANY MORE REASONS!
Where are the funds for the humanistic holistic social work counselors and their low carbon footprint bicycles? And their facial tissues for crying murderers when they repent?
“De Bozo is insane.”
What is scary is a high percentage of NYers feel he is not liberal enough.
He has over a year left to finish destroying NYC.
That makes sense.
Frees up some money for Chirlane McCray’s next unauthorized and graft to cronies ridden project.
A billion is about the right size for her bi-annual left initiative allowance.
Antifa, BLM, thugs and gang members new theme song,”We’ll take Manhattan, the Bronx and Staten Island too. Its lovely going through the poo.....”
What is that in percent of total previous budgets?.................
When the pendulum swings back in the other direction, that NYC mayor will make Rudy’s policies look whimpish. Then like clockwork, the people of the city will forget and elect another series of idiot mayors and the cycle will continue.
Problem is, this is part of the longstanding Alinsky and foreign Communist playbook for the US.
Get things slowly so bad that the people will be ripe for the “solution” of Marxist government.
Breakdown by crime and destruction of the economy are playing into their hands. It’s no longer “slow”, it’s rapid now.
Sunday morning a cop pulled over in the parking lot next to me for a break. I live in fairly stable Iowa college town. I brought him a fresh cup of coffee. I was wearing my trump hat so he figured he could relax with me.
I asked him how things were going and heard 3 things.
1) His instructions were to lay low and not look for situations. Almost an apology to me.
2) Just a few more years till his pension and then he was gone.
3) The younger cops were looking for different career options
Folks, These are the thoughts of EVERY COP IN THE USA, WHETHER SMALL TOWN OR LARGE TOWN.
Blasios budget problem will solve itself.......................
Liberals do not repent of their positions,until they are consumed by them. Democrat voters would just try again and expect different results.
Here come (in another few months) the UN blue helmets.
