Democrat Woke-Idiots on New York's City Council slashes $1B from police budget, bowing to 'defund' demands even as crime soars

Corey Johnson Openly Gay City Council President

Led by Openly Gay City Council President Corey Johnson, this is simply insane! 
But, the woke-idiots who run this city don't care especially when they'll have their own private security details.  
Fox News reports New York City lawmakers voted Tuesday on budget changes that shifted $1 billion from the New York Police Department to programs that assist in youth and community development, a number that fell short of what many protesters in the city have demanded.
The City Council said in a statement that the city's 2021 budget will include $837 million in cuts and transfers to the New York Police Department (NYPD) expense budget, which removes $1 billion from the NYPD’s spending when combined with associated costs.
The amount was far less than what some protesters demanded. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., said earlier that $1.5 billion in cuts would not be enough.
 “Defunding police means defunding police. It does not mean budget tricks or funny math," she said. One Twitter user wrote, "This is like putting the NYPD budget in Groucho Marx glasses and calling it a day."
Corey Johnson, the city council speaker, said, "The Council fought hard to get where we are, but I know this is just a starting point, not an ending point. We need to go farther."
