From the article:
The head of Black Lives Matter of Greater New York met with Eric Adams, the city’s mayor-elect, to discuss policing and warned that there will be “bloodshed” if the city returns to its pre-De Blasio model, according to a report.
“If he thinks that they’re going to go back to the old ways of policing, then we are going to take to the streets again. There will be riots, there will be fire and there will be bloodshed because we believe in defending our people,” Newsome told the paper. He said that the group prays for peace but prepares “for the worst.”
You know, it’s almost as if going easy on last summer’s protesters emboldened them. (Satire filter set to on.)
Craven city leaders from coast to coast let protesters run wild, and now they threaten the cities with more violence. The only way out of this downward spiral is massive crackdown on any protests that result in violence, including wanton destruction of property. Mayor-elect Evans knocked out all the candidates who were weak on crime, and yet this BLM leader didn’t get the message. What really stinks is that the people who suffer the most from this abandonment of public order are the people progressives claim to care about — the poor. (I know — progressives don’t really care about the poor, but they think they do.)Published in
