NYC councilmember tiffany caban (D-I love the NYPD) tells constituents not to call 911 if confronted by a drug crazed lunatic or the normal, garden variety, criminal. Use the terms, “That’s wrong ” until the creep realizes his mistake and leaves. She also says to call 311 and ask for a crisis team. In ther meantime, “Give the person time to correct their behavior.” When calling for an overdose just say a person is in distress. Medical only. No cops wanted or requested.
She went on to state that the subways are just fine. Yeah sure, just fine if you want a demo on mental illness gone wild and drug abuse…up close and personal.
As one might expect she got a lotta blowback on this and her phone and social media “lit up” with snarky and threatening comments. What did she do? Called the cops (911), of course.
A spokesperson for the NYPD said “This is an ongoing investigation” and the usual blather. Gonna bet the cops are going to pursue this matter vigorously and relentlessly until they bring these non-believers into compliance. Carry on!
BUCKLE UP, WEAR YOUR VEST, TURN ON YOUR CAMERA, STAY SAFE and deadly if you must.
