Statement on Recent Police Shootings & Bail Reform

By February 10, 2020February 11th, 2020No Comments

The New York Young Republican Club is deeply disturbed by the news over the weekend of shootings targeting New York City Police Officers. Bill de Blasio, Andrew Cuomo, and stalwart leftists across the United States continue to champion or remain alarmingly silent on anti-police rhetoric growing more and more commonplace in the name of ‘progressivism’. This irresponsible language incited lunatics like accused cop shooter Robert Williams and likely played a role in this weekend’s shootings as well.

These progressive politicians have created dangerous and lawless environment for anti-police crackpots. They shouldn’t act surprised when shootings like these occur and crime rates soar. Our hearts and prayers are with the officers wounded this weekend and their families.

The New York Young Republican Club calls for an immediate end to bail reform as currently enacted and contemplated. There is nothing progressive about letting accused criminals back onto the streets to kill innocents. A revolving door of criminality makes our city and our brave police officers unsafe. Let’s keep these criminals behind bars where they belong.
