It’s not just New York City that has been a surge in crime following defunding their police department – it’s a fate any city that adopts such a ridiculous policy can expect to see. Following the death of George Floyd, the Minneapolis City Council quickly moved to “dismantle” their city’s police department and replace it with a “department of community safety and violence prevention.” That proposal was delayed until November, but they did end up making cuts to police funding, and their public rhetoric had demoralized police.
