DE BLASIO DENIED? New State Plan Would Place NYPD Under Control of Independent Panel

posted by Hannity Staff - 7.09.20

A new plan coming from New York State could remove Bill de Blasio’s authority over the NYPD; placing control under the state’s Attorney General to appoint a police commissioner and implement policy.

“I believe we need to bridge the undeniable divide between police and public,” Letitia James told reporters, according to The New York Times.

“As part of her recommendations, James called for an independent panel – not de Blasio — to appoint the city’s police commissioner and oversee hirings and firings at the NYPD,” reports Fox News. “A de Blasio spokeswoman quickly dismissed the plan from James — an ally of New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who has long feuded with the mayor. Both Cuomo and de Blasio are Democrats.”

“While we thank the attorney general for her investigation and look forward to reviewing the report in full and working together to further reform policing in this city, we do not believe creating a commission to oversee the NYPD does that,” de Blasio spokeswoman Freddi Goldstein told the Times.

CHAOS NYC: Rioters Loot Manhattan Stores, De Blasio Describes Situation as ‘Limited Protest Activity’

posted by Hannity Staff - 6.01.20

Rioters smashed windows and looted stores in Manhattan late Sunday night after assembling for citywide protests following the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis; a situation Mayor Bill de Blasio described as “limited protest activity.”

“Fox News crews on the scene in SoHo reported hundreds of people stealing from luxury stores – including Chanel and Dior – for hours on Sunday night going into the early hours of Monday morning. The looters were seen piling shoplifted merchandise into vehicles while others rode off with the merchandise in black garbage bags balanced on CitiBikes,” reports Fox news.

 

“Most of the day we had large crowds throughout the city in multiple boroughs [on Sunday]. But when it got dark, things changed and it changed rapidly,” Shea said on Fox News’ “Fox & Friends” on Monday morning. “We anticipated it, but you saw large groups of people had no inclination to all this protest once it got dark, particularly in the area of SoHo between Canal and West Broadway. We had a number of stores broken into.”
