Police Commissioner Bill Bratton has recently taken big hands on City Police and State leaders for allowing abandoning cops and helping developing the “social virus” that goes along with the coronavirus that goes along with the coronavirus which is leaving entire society in a jeopardised condition.
“The city is a mess and it’s going to get a lot worse unfortunately,” Bratton said during a WABC-77 radio interview.
Bratton summarized the that the morale of the city’s finest at its all time low after “getting attacked from all sides” and “being defunded and demeaned.”
According to Bratton, what more frustrating is the same people who used to cooperate with Police to take down the flag of crime are not doing so because they “feel intimated” by others who are protesting police brutality in the wake of death of George Floyd in Minneapolis police custody.
“It’s a second storm,” Bratton said. “There’s the coronavirus that’s taking a lot of lives on the one hand and now the crime virus that will take a lot of lives on the other.”
When Bratton was asked about if he is not happy with the Mayor Bill De Blasio’s decision that will make it harder for NYPD to tackle crime, including the steep budget cut, Bratton didn’t hold back his frustration.
“I’m disappointed with the whole political establishment here in the state, in Albany and in the city. They have effectively, collectively and individually, turned their back in many respects on the entity that’s most responsible for the crime reduction in this city, state and indeed the country — the police,” Bratton said.
Why Bratton didn’t take Del Blasio’s name directly but he didn’t spare the city council for pushing a “far-left” agenda and promoting it to the “mob”.
“Most of them don’t know what the hell they voted for. They’ve become a mob themselves in the sense of some of the legislation they’re passing. They should be ashamed of themselves,” said Bratton, who served as de Blasio’s first police commissioner.
Commissioner Bratton was really shocked by the sudden decision taken by City Hall to reduce the police manpower. Almost 1300 police officers added under him, bolstered neighborhood policing, which was hugely supported as a move to establishing a good relationship between police and the community.
He said a lot of councilmembers were too young to understand the terror of 80’s and 90’s when there were more than 2000 murders a year.
Bratton who also served as Mayor Rudy Giuliani’s police commissioner, said the city was “Hellhole then” and “the police that brought it back from the precipice.”
According to Bratton, Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s and the state legislature’s decision to pass an ill-conceived law that eliminates the cash bail for many crimes before the pandemic hit is very significant and driving force of the crime spike.
He has said “emptying” state prisons and jails has put a lot of dangerous criminals out on the street when the court system is “disarray” due to coronavirus.
Bratton said he’s “very disappointed” the city’s political leadership is “playing” to the demonstrators” and “not the just the left, but the far left.”
“It’s going to come back eventually to bite them all in the rear end,” he said. “The City Council has spoken and now their constituents are going to be punished by rising crime and the ineffectiveness of government to control it.”
“They don’t have a goddamn clue what they’re talking about but we are not going to let them destroy this city,” Police Commissioner Dermot Shea said during a CompStat briefing. “People that don’t have a clue about how to keep New Yorkers safe suddenly think they know about policing.”
Media reached out to the Mayor Del Blasio’s office and NYPD for their comments on seven minute long video.
Julia Arredondo, a spokeswoman for de Blasio, said “As shown in their hour-long press conference together on Friday, the mayor and commissioner are closely working together to beat back crime.”
