@AOC has to go- So you’re saying most minorities are criminals because they’re minorities…Minorities tend to vote Democratic because of Republican racism xenophobia and bigotry, no secret here just ask minorities why they vote democratic. The majority of American voters are registered Democrats. Only reasons why Republicans make any gains is because of voter suppression and gerrymandering. Like the president mentioned on Fox and Friends, more people turnout we’ll never win an election again.

Trump only lost by 3 million votes

I guess we need 4 million or something? I have a feeling the millions of American lives his virus response is causing will sway voters.

@hashtagger- I guess everything David posted is true since he listed at least 5 crimes and you didn’t dispute any and decided to go with a personal attack.

We need to start testing more people for coronavirus. Cuomo’s own brother who tested positive said that he began hallucinating seeing his dead father sitting in a chair while he was home with fever. In addition, many people are developing mental illness and strange behavior with all this uncertainty, fear and shelter in place. Its real folks! You can joke all you want about this woman’s appearance while people like her may be struggling and battling this disease which is affecting brain function and mental capacities.

Crime is low. Many of the typical criminal demographic is home sick or at hospitals and many of those that walk around with their guards down flew back home.

She should get an Old Navy gift card from the city to buy a pair of proper fitting jeans. Crime pays both ways unfortunately…

Why don’t banks have bags of money where after a few minutes the bag explodes and ink gets all over the robber and the money? Also shouldn’t there be alarms under each tellers window to alert the cops? She’s not just robbing a bank, but the people who have their money there.

The banks paid back all money borrowed under TARP with interest. Somehow I doubt this woman will.

Don’t count on it when 20% of the NYPD are put sick. MTA, USPS, NYFD, etc. show up for work. What’s up with the NYPD? How come journalists aren’t investigating this? I’m not anti-police as I have friends who are NYPD. But annoyed when MTA workers and FDNY get the virus and die.

No one even tried to take her down?

How else would they know she was unarmed? Covid 19 fear has everyone getting away with everything??? That’s BS!

THIS is why it’s a pandemic! Get the job done!!

AOC HAS GOT TO GO

According to FBI metrics, minorities commit a disproportionate percentage of crimes, including violent crimes, and since a majority of minorities vote democratic, you do the math.

The forced orange man bad meme? From 2019? 😬

There aren’t hashtags on this site, they use those on sites like Instagram and Twitter.

She’s clearly a Democrat.

Republicans rob banks by “borrowing” from the Fed.

@M Anon- According to FBI statistics all but one of the 20 the highest crime states are all Republican strongholds like Louisiana, South Carolina, Tennessee, Alabama, Alaska, New Mexico and Arkansas etc. Oh that’s right you’re a Republican truth facts and history don’t matter.

@David
Having spent time in many of the states you listed, I can assure you that the crimes you refer to are not happening in the Republican areas of those “Republican” states. And that’s a fact.

That's completely false

“I said so” — Thanks for supplying all that evidence lmao

You should flee this liberal nightmare and go to a Republican paradise like Alabama. Or some of the states “protesting” public health because Trump told them to. You’re protesting too right?

@John- Trump is a convicted criminal. Convicted of stock fraud, illegal demolition, housing discrimination, fraud involving his fraudulent foundation where he defrauded veterans and was forced by a judge to pay restitution of $2 Million and a fraud conviction involving Trump University where he again was forced by a judge to pay $28 million in restitution to his victims.

So, no video footage to post? Not even a still photo from the bank’s security cameras? Let’s thank the 2019 New York bail reform, crime has gone up. This is what happens when you vote Democratic. The Democrats dont give a crap about the people, we need to vote Republican to save the state and the country.
