Activists don't like Melissa's cop plan

From the Daily News:

Police reform activists slammed on Thursday a push by the City Council and Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito to add 1,000 new cops to the NYPD.

Mark-Viverito has made a headcount hike a top priority and plans to include it in the Council’s budget proposal, though it was left out of Mayor de Blasio’s latest plan.

“We don’t think that the largest police force in the country needs another thousand cops,” said Monica Novoa of the Coalition to End Broken Windows, among groups that rallied outside City Hall Thursday. “We don’t need more officers implementing broken windows policing.”

She said she was puzzled to see Mark-Viverito, a leading progressive, pushing the $90 million a year plan.

Smoke and mirrors.

She's trying to project the image of a law-and-order politician, just like her tax-payers trip to Israel that she is pro-Israel.

NYC has too many cops!

They cruise around Queens all day looking to ticket drivers. Replace them with traffic cops!

I have a solution. Take the cops out of the communities that don't want them and put them in the communities that do want them.

That way the people in the civilized areas of the city who support the police can have improved services, and the people in the hood can be free to shoot and rob each other without police harassment.

More Cops! Politicians always know to throw a bone to the Unions.

Let this sink in for a minute: there's a hoard of "activists" on the NYC political scene out there who don't think MMV is leftist enough.

Almost enough to make you begin to miss Ms. Chrissy Quinn!

She wants all the unions to like her, including the police unions. Asking for more cops takes no political risks.

There are plenty of cops hiding in non enforcemet posts. Most of them can be put on the streets,even though most are useless cowards. What we do need is more civilians. There is no need to have to wait over an hour to file a report or get a copy of one!!

What a puffy faced ass wad she is.
Soon NYC will implode upon itself and it's back to the 1970s.

If NYC defaults, where the fuck do you move to?
The rest of America is turning to crap.

Destination, Beijing? They don't want us.
We are just being milked for our US dollars etc.
