Yes, we need police reform, but enough is enough with painting shit and renaming shit and not actually doing anything about the core issues of the city. It can't just be "BLM" 24/7. We have a lot of problems that this lazy asshole hasn't even touched because he's too busy buying yellow paint.

Some black people -and the white idiots who are going overboard in their "devotion" to the cause to the point it comes off as disingenuous- are overplaying their hand with accusing EVERYONE with racism. Eventually, you're going to lose allies when you think every fucking criticism is based in racism. Accept valid criticism.

I was insulted and attacked by many here 2 months ago when I mentioned that NYC was getting dirtier and unsafe. I wish I was wrong with my observations because I have lived here since the 80s and want to continue to be able to live here, but DeBlasio has let the city go to the dogs, criminal dogs that is. It is disgusting what is happening and to have Ms. Wiley on MSNBC apologize for DeBlasio and blame Washington and the local courts for all that is wrong with the city shows me she is not equipped to take over the top city job.

Of the left wingers she's a moral and intelligent person. I'm impressed by her when I have seen her on news shows. There was one Melber show where the guest (associated somehow with Trump) was beginning to have a real mental breakdown. It was obvious and it appeared he might say something that would get him into legal trouble. She, and Ari to his credit, shut the guy down for his own sake and expressed real human concern for his mental state. I think the news later reported the guy went and got professional help afterwards. So, she's very decent. She was legal counsel I believe in city government which does not make her a DeBlasio person necessarily. Please post some of her supposed DeBlasio defense statements. All that being said I think after DeBlasio's horrible and thoroughly corrupt administration New York needs a moderate Republican. I am registered Libertarian but will most likely vote for such a moderate if on the ticket. But I would definitely give Wiley a look for her intelligence and decency alone.

I hate DeBlasio but just because he's so ineffectual and namby-pamby, he leans hard into the stereotype of what Democrats are. I am a hardcore Democrat and won't be voting for anyone with any position right of DB but we need somebody strong, forthright, willing to stomp on the faces of the NYPD for one. Fuck those fuckers. I vaguely recognize this woman from MSNBC but if she thinks DB's done a good job that's a strike against her. I really do like Corey Johnson for the most part -- and he doesn't seem to have any patience with the police, which is good -- but I'm not convinced he's tough enough. Which sounds like coded homophobia even as I type it, I recognize. I just think NYC should be able to have a kick-ass mayor, somebody like Gavin Newsom who gets shit done. Why can't we find a fighter?

by Anonymousreply 5107/29/2020

Another example of a thug being able to walk the streets with a gun and then shooting someone in the stomach after bumping one another in a store which then escalated.

Maya Wiley supported the ending of stop and frisk which kept millions of guns off the streets of NYC. Today the thugs know they can carry any weapon without being checked. The policy should have been modified but not ended. More people of color have died since the end of stop and frisk, thanks DeBlasio and your apologists. You all have blood on your hands. NYC needs law and order, any city of 8 million needs to have the law abiding citizens feeling safe, but right now it is anything but.

R43, I voted to re-elect Big Bird. I’m a lifelong Democrat and the Republican offerings were not palatable: Dietl?Malliotakis? It was a “lesser of two evils” kind of vote (which I’m getting used to, slowly). My first vote for him was enthusiastic. The second, begrudging.

I liked a few things he did, such as Universal Pre-K (although Bloomberg set it up, he just knocked it down) and making lunches in schools free for all (although that is a second-term accomplishment).

His lip service to “people of color” is ridiculous. Oh, he reads some Spanish off a card, so he cares about Latinos. That’s the extent of it. His animosity toward Asians is blatant.

He talks a good game, but I don’t see his appreciation of Black New Yorkers. NYCHA. His secret analingus on developers. His low expectations. The disappearance of nearly $1billion for his wife’s mental illness initiative which would have disproportionately benefited poor black people.

I’d take Bloomberg back in a heartbeat.

Don't get me started on that shit. We have fucking lanes where not only are there so few bikes that it was ridiculous to take away a much needed traffic lane -particularly during rush hour- but even the few assholes who use them ignore traffic laws and go through lights when they aren't supposed to. There are specific bike signals and the fuckers ignore it.

When I see a story about some cyclist getting injured, I automatically know it's their fault. I couldn't care less about them. Selfish assholes.

You people clearly need to have your heads examined! ANY Republican will reinstitute Rudy's Fascist Police State, and finish us off. NYC remains one of the safest big cities in America unless you're black, then it sucks because the PIGS will murder you in broad daylight and never be held accountable.

Corey Johnson is a sly opportunist, and I'm not sure he would be any better than DeBlasio. He made some huge rookie errors (actually broke the law) when he first ran for office, using campaign money to buy clothes and pay his rent and that of his campaign manager who was an unemployable friend of his at the time. Corey is about Corey, and if he has to read his script to get elected mayor, he will.
