AOC suggests NYC crime surge due to unemployment, residents who need to 'shoplift some bread'


The New York Democrat insisted that the uptick in crime is unrelated to the new NYPD budget cuts

New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez suggested over the weekend that the crime surge in New York City is likely because struggling residents are forced to shoplift in order to "feed their child."

In a virtual town hall meeting she hosted Thursday, some clips of which were shared by The Hill, the 30-year-old Democratic congresswoman was asked about the troubling uptick in violent crimes overtaking the city.

“Do we think this has to do with the fact that there’s record unemployment in the United States right now?" she responded. "The fact that people are at a level of economic desperation that we have not seen since the Great Recession?"

Maybe this has to do with the fact that people aren't paying their rent and are scared to pay their rent and so they go out, and they need to feed their child and they don't have money," Ocasio-Cortez continued, "so they feel like they either need to shoplift some bread or go hungry.”

The New York Police Department (NYPD) has reported a staggering increase in shootings and violent crimes in recent weeks, as officials warn there’s “a storm on the horizon” amid calls for changes.

On Saturday, the New York Post reported 15 shootings in 15 hours, just one week after the city saw a bloody July Fourth weekend with 44 shootings and at least eight killed.

The congresswoman and vocal supporter of the "defund police" movement insisted, however, that the crime spike is unrelated to the $1 billion NYPD budget cuts announced by Mayor Bill de Blasio, which have not yet taken effect, she claimed.

The New York Democrat recently spoke out against the budget cuts, arguing that they don't go far enough to entirely defund the department, and accused de Blasio of using "budget tricks" and "funny math" in the calculation.

When asked later to comment on the issue, the congresswoman told viewers: "When people ask me 'What does a world where we defund the police look like?', I tell them it looks like a suburb."

Not that it should surprise anyone that the face of the Democratic Party is a complete and utter moron, but she has once again opened her mouth to remove any remaining doubt. So apparently, shooting up your neighborhood and killing innocent people is simply because you are on unemployment and getting paid not to work. That makes sense.

This from a congressman who went out of her way to see to it that 25,000 Amazon jobs committed to NYC went elsewhere.

For that Va and Ky thank you.

Moreover she thought tax breaks given to Amazon reduced actual revenue.

Yes, after you shoplift your loaf of bread you shoot or stab somebody on your way home, it makes the bread taste better.

Wow, so AOC thinks that defunding the police will turn all neighborhoods into beautiful crime free suburbs? Do any of her supporters believe that?

I guess the left thinks that the police are the cause of crime? Without police, arrests will go down, and Democrats will take that as the crime rate going down, right?

As I don't generally try to decipher "moron", I believe that her point was that the police don't "hang out" in the suburbs, therefore the inner city will look like the suburbs as in no cops. What the imbecile seems to ignore, neglect, not intelligent enough to realize, is that the cops generally "hang out" where the crime is. They don't need to have such a heavy presence in the suburbs as there is not much of a threat of crime.

Also, a question I would love to ask this idiot is what does stealing TV's and burning down stores have to do with trying to feed your family? Also, what are they doing with the unemployment compensation that they should be receiving along with the extra $600 a month that the fed is kicking during the pandemic?

This women is a brain dead as any public figure I have ever come across. And the sad part is that there are a lot of people in that district that will still vote for this dunce. I guess that they are not a lot smarter that she is.
