Ocasio-Cortez Says Cutting Police Pay By $1 Billion Doesn’t “Count” – Calls For MORE Cuts

She’s now more unhinged than ever before.

According to an explosive report by Fox News, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez claims that New York City didn’t go far enough when it cut the city’s police department funds by over a billion dollars. She says that New York City should defund the police completely.

Ocasio-Cortez Wants Defund The Police All At Once

Ocasio-Cortez went on a long rant claiming that it doesn’t “count” if police departments lose funding over time. She just wants to abruptly cut all police departments immediately.

Ocasio-Cortez said:

“It does not mean counting overtime cuts as cuts, even as NYPD ignores every attempt by City Council to curb overtime spending and overspends on overtime anyways.”

Ocasio-Cortez then said that cutting the police department was “not a victory” for the far left. She wants even more destruction of America’s police:

“If these reports are accurate, then these proposed ‘cuts’ to the NYPD budget are a disingenuous illusion. This is not a victory. The fight to defund policing continues.”

According to the Gotham Gazette report Ocasio-Cortez was referring to, the agreement would reduce the number of officers in the city by canceling its July class of 1,163 cadets. It also includes $350 million in cuts to overtime pay and and various other expenses such as travel enforcement and vehicle purchases.

She thinks that the decision didn’t go far enough. She wants to cut police departments completely.

This Isn’t About George Floyd

Although Democrats claim that they were inspired by the death of George Floyd to target police, it’s becoming more and more clear by the day that they are lying.

This is about shutting down law enforcement.

Democrats like Ocasio-Cortez literally want to stop policing New York City, which is one of the most violent places on earth. They don’t care about stopping crime. They’re more interested in making sure that criminals are allowed to get away with whatever they want.

This is wrong. Period.
