Someone just ran their car into #FireCuervo protesters right outside of NYPD’s 6th precinct. NYPD came & ripped a protester’s bike out of the car’s way before the car went through & hit protesters as it sped off. Protesters ran after the car & then cops ran after them & the car.
#FireCuervo protesters ran after the car after it hit people. Cops kinda just stood around at first until they got told to get the car. NYPD TARU continued recording & surveilling protesters.
Eventually, cops caught up to the protesters & the car. NYPD cops pushed #FireCuervo protesters back & arrested the driver. One protester also eventually got put in an ambulance. Protesters then continued marching.

As part of the fake NYPD budget cuts last year, Mayor Bill de Blasio agreed to merely move control of school cops from NYPD to Dept of Education.

Basically, put a different patch on the same school cops & call it a cut!

But even THAT hasn't happened yet.…
"One year into the two-year transition, officials have said little about the process."
"Key questions have yet to be answered, including whether school safety agents will answer directly to principals, how their duties might change, and even if they will continue to wear police uniforms."

Former NYPD cop Eric Adams "said he has already met with police union heads to reset the relationship between the mayor and the force amid a spike in violence."…
“'It’s about going behind closed doors, and say, ‘Let’s turn a new page,’' Adams, 60, said in an interview Thursday on Bloomberg Television. 'They are eager to sit down with me and say, ‘How do we move policing into the 21st century?''"
""For his part, Adams plans to bring back a modified version of stop-and-frisk tactics that have been criticized for victimizing young minority men."

Brad Lander & Jumaane Williams are not "bold progressives."

For years, they've both voted for more cops & increased funding for NYPD. Jumaane is a notorious opportunist & careerist. Lander also voted in favor of Mayor Bill de Blasio's plan to build 4 new jails.
Both Brad Lander & Jumaane Williams, like many opportunist NYC politicians, have promoted themselves as "progressives" while voting for more cops & more funding for NYPD (even after months of #BlackLivesMatter & #NoNewNYPD protests).
In 2019, I asked Jumaane Williams directly (3x!) if he would push to cut the NYPD's headcount & invest the $$/resources saved into things communities need.

He refused to answer.

Then in 2020, amidst the protests, Jumaane tried to front like he was down.
