I was a NYC cop and Sgt for 20 years. I witnessed the ressurection of this city after decades of mismanagement and neglect by DEMOCRATS. Through Conservative leadership and the BLOOD SWEAT and TEARS of the NYPD the city became safe again and people and money flooded back in.
It breaks my heart to see this. What don’t the people of NYC understand about leftwing Democrats??? 20 years of sacrifice down the drain folks….RIP NYC.
New York City’s war on drugs is over. The junkies won.
The New York Police Department waved the white flag last week — upon orders to surrender from Albany — directing officers to let drug addicts freely shoot up on city streets, and even let them share needles.
“Effective immediately, members of the service should not take any enforcement action against any individual who possesses a hypodermic needle, even when it contains residue of a controlled substance,” states a directive to NYPD commanders issued last Friday and obtained by The Post.
Senate Bill 2523, cited in the order to street cops, decriminalizes the possession or sale of hypodermic needles and syringes, commonly used by addicts to inject drugs such as heroin.
“This law says stick a needle in your arm, pump your body with poison and lose your life,” said state Sen. Andrew Lanza (R-Staten Island), one of the few NYC lawmakers who opposed the legislation. “This law says to people suffering addiction that New York has given up on you, that New York doesn’t care about you.”
The measure, effective Oct. 7, originated in New York City, sponsored by state Sen. Gustavo Rivera (D-Bronx), and was signed into law by Gov. Hochul last week in Manhattan.
