Buck Sexton, the host of “The Buck Sexton Show” said on Tuesday that the streets in New York City have become increasingly sketchy under Mayor Bill de Blasio and the soft-on-crime Democrat leadership in the Big Apple.
Sexton said he walked his pregnant sister home in Midtown Manhattan on Monday night and spotted a man “basically rolling around on the ground, almost entirely naked on a street.”
“I’m not going to want to tell you what I think he was doing as I walked past,” Sexton said. “I mean, that’s what’s going on here in the city. And it’s because of what has been done to our cops in this city, because of de Blasio and the Democrats.”
Sexton said he could not help but think to himself that he was on his own. He said he walked his younger sister home to make sure she got there safely, but he could not shake the feeling that police might not respond if they needed help. Sexton is a former CIA analyst and said he was trained at using firearms, but under the laws in New York City, he cannot carry a gun to protect himself.
“I would get sent to prison for years,” Sexton said. “Do not pass Go. Do not collect $200. Go to prison. I’m spending at least two, maybe three, maybe four years at Rikers Island.”
The New York Post reported that crimes—on the whole-- are down for the year, but that does not consider crimes that are not reported. The report said that burglaries in the city have quadrupled since last week.
“Part of their calculus most of police resources would be tied up with marches,” John Miller, the NYPD’s Counter Intelligence deputy commissioner, told the paper. “We had to split off a good deal of those resources to chase down those looters until the morning.”
De Blasio vowed on Sunday to cut funding from the city’s police department’s $6 billion budget. He was scant on details and said that it would be worked out by July 1, the New York Times reported.
“We’re committed to seeing a shift of funding to youth services, to social services, that will happen literally in the course of the next three weeks, but I’m not going to go into detail because it is subject to negotiation and we want to figure out what makes sense,” de Blasio said.
