Anyone believing they put out “500 additional officers” on the subways, I kindly reprimand you: “Don’t be so gullible” please. ☝️😐

Cuomo and De Blasio are pro dissolve of the NYPD remember 😲They are disgusting and need to be jailed their dam selves for assault on the people of NY
Can NYC policeman keep their hands out all seasons at all times not putting in their pockets? Looks like they are idling not on duty.

[Two Asian Senior Citizens Attacked on NYC Subway in the Same Day; Mayor Bill de Blasio called the attack “unacceptable” on Twitter This is unacceptable. We will NOT tolerate violence on our subways. Public transportation is safe for all New Yorkers.] I [Mayor Bill de Blasio] rode the subway yesterday and added over 600 officers to the beat. We will make sure public transportation is safe for all New Yorkers. So Mayor Bill you cut 1 BILLION dollars from your police budget, and now you steal 600 cops from other essential police services. Where are going to get the money to fill in the shortages of cops Dip feces Mayor Bill?

A little over a year ago they protested to keep the NYPD out of the NYC subway. Now the working class who actually need to use the subway are begging for there to be more police presence there. The ant-police protests throughout the US in 2020 in the name of BLM wasn't going to work in NYC. Too many gangs and psychopaths in NYC. The population density is not the same as rural towns in the Midwest.

Where are they patrolling union and times square? You need police riding and patrolling the trains at the outer borough stations when the empty out and reload. Not at the 9/11 stations. A crazy woman was on the train today and not an officer on sight. They're patrolling the wrong stations.

@Sankofa NYC bon voyage... just know that it was you who said that the cops NEVER stand on the platform, which automatically removed any validity of any point you may have had... enjoy the rest of your evening... oh and by the way, I never mentioned or implied that random acts of violence don't happen anywhere else... if I did, please show me, I'd really appreciate it... I don't want to find out that I'm actually forgetting my words like dementia joe...

@Newyoricanlevite Newyoricanlevite oh I am... We are clearly done... Now that your point has shifted to there is and was has been crime in America... 😂WOW MIND BLOWING!! How unique of it... Cause no where else has random acts of violence... That was the point you set out to prove and I helped you with... I helped you make that point... And dude I'm on Walton Ave in the Bronx right now literally as I type this... I live and work in the Bronx. Of course cops are on train platforms from time to time... There are cop stations and stands inside some train stations, so obviously. I think the point I was making just flew by you... But yo... Reply if you want, but this show sucks, I'm leaving 😂✌🏾

@Sankofa NYC thank you for completely proving my point.. it's appreciated much more than you can imagine.... with that said... welcome to Demezuela.. formerly known as America, land of the free... enjoy!!!! Oh, and after more than 4 decades in NYC, I think I might know just a LITTLE bit of public transportation and what goes on...😉 as far as police NEVER standing on the platform... then you must never have been at the 149th 3rd Avenue, or 149th grand concourse, 42nd st, 34th st, 180th st, Burke Avenue, Morrison sound view ave, 161st, fulton st, wall st,, and that's just a few in Manhattan and the bronx, I could go on about Brooklyn and queens... you might want to try again... but don't believe me, take a stroll on any of the number lines in the bronx, I guarantee you'll find cops standing on the platform... I know I have seen a few, unless I was hallucinating and imagining the arrests for not paying the fare....

Cuomo killed thousands of elderly people in nursing homes. Needlessly and alone. That is a fact. All the mainstream media who decided to ignore and not report on this story. You all have the blood of those who died on your hands as well. You are disgusting parasites. Also all those entertainers who came out in support of Cuomo. You also have blood on your hands. For what? Dirty politics. Hatred. You all are disgusting disgusting dirtbags. Those people were so ones parents. Grandparents, brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles, friends. Live with that you pieces of sh@t.

I’m convinced psychopaths love to commit copycat crimes like it’s a fad in season. It’s almost like they have their own newsletter or social media platform, and try to out due each other. You have those that beat the elderly during the fall, those who break subway windows when it’s summer, those who slash & stab subway riders over the winter, and those who push ppl into the train tracks for the entire 2020.

Ok stop only patrolling the tourist heavy subway stations only..Go patrol West 4th (is a freaking Zoo), 2nd Ave F Train, Fulton Street, Delancey street, etc. Uptown and downtown platforms, can’t use the machines to buy a metro card as shady peeps harassing us. Maskless homeless colony’s of peeps hanging around the entrance of the non ticket booth entrances, smoking and doing drugs...barely being able to breath with a mask on the last thing we need is to get a puff of filthy second hand smoke stuck inside our masks inside the stations when were gasping for air in the first place.....
