In a move that can only be described as absolutely absurd, Public Advocate Jumaane Williams and City Council Speaker Adrienne Williams, along with their progressive cronies, are pushing yet another anti-police bill. This time, their brilliant idea involves burdening NYPD officers with a mountain of paperwork for even the most trivial interactions with the public.
Already, we are seeing a mass exodus of cops from the force, leaving streets less safe and citizens more vulnerable. And now, with this new bill, morale will plummet even further, making the situation even worse. But hey, who cares about public safety when you can appease the cop-haters like Jumaane Williams, right?

Under this asinine proposal, officers would be required to file a report for every single one of the 7 million contacts they have with the public each year. Can you believe it? That means documenting details such as the civilian’s race, age, and gender. You know, because we need more reports from Williams complaining about how many black and Latino individuals the police are actually engaging with.
The consequences of this proposal are staggering. We can expect to see less police presence on our streets, with officers stuck behind desks drowning in paperwork. And let’s not forget the additional cost of overtime to cover the increased workload. As if the cops weren’t already furious about excessive overtime demands, now they have to second-guess every interaction with civilians, knowing it will lead to more forms to fill out.
It’s clear that these progressives have lost touch with reality. They are so obsessed with their agenda that they are willing to sacrifice public safety in the process. That’s why it’s up to us, the voters, to take a stand. Let your councilman know that if they vote in favor of this madness, you will be there at every opportunity to vote for someone else. A voter revolt is the only thing these politicians fear, so let’s make our voices heard and stop this insanity before it’s too late.
