The Issue: Mayor Adams’ lack of concern concerning the wave of resigning and retiring NYPD officers.

What is Mayor Adams smoking (“Bleeding blue,” June 12)?

If he’s not anxious about skilled cops leaving the NYPD, he’s unfit for his crucial job.

Crime is uncontrolled. The streets are unsafe. Everyone is aware of this however him. Criminals haven’t any concern of arrest or incarceration. Law and order has been deserted. Demented left-wing politicians haven’t any respect for legislation and order or the law-abiding residents who must be protected.

Replacing cops is expensive and time-consuming. New York City is headed for complete chaos.

Thomas Birnbaum

New York’s Finest are actually additionally New York’s smartest, as they sensible as much as the futility they face in attempting to do the job they signed up for and stop the NYPD.

Woke politicians, hostile residents and Soros-funded district attorneys make a mockery of the truth that cops put their lives on the road to catch criminals, solely to see them out on the road earlier than the ink on the paperwork is dry.

Hopefully, with the recall of DA Chesa Boudin in San Francisco, our legislators will get the message that lawlessness will not be an possibility and cops will select to remain on the drive in New York City.

The article in Sunday’s Post concerning the massive numbers of law enforcement officials retiring, leaving or resigning from the NYPD describes a tragic travesty for this metropolis.

As crime continues to extend and shootings are nonetheless excessive, the very last thing that we want is to lose these public servants.

Bail legal guidelines that tie the palms of the police and liberal judges within the criminal-court system are two of the principle causes crime won’t ever lower, until there are rapid adjustments.

Mayor Adams must give attention to doing the job that New Yorkers elected him to do or his approval ranking goes to proceed to drop like a rock. He must get his act collectively.

New Yorkers deserve to have the ability to reside and work in a protected metropolis, not one which resembles Dodge City.

If we don’t reverse the development of police leaving the drive, will probably be inconceivable to reverse the decline that’s at present taking place all through New York City.

With marijuana now legalized, I’m not optimistic concerning the future with out sturdy legislation enforcement.

I learn with curiosity your story concerning the mass exodus of law enforcement officials retiring or resigning from the drive, leaving many vacancies to fill. You can’t blame them. The entrance web page known as it “Bleeding blue.”

A blue wave leaving a blue state crammed with hypocritical social-justice progressives. Perhaps they’re searching for greener pastures in pink states the place their talent set has worth and they’re revered. New York’s loss is our achieve.

Would you encourage your son or daughter to develop into an NYPD officer? Why would anybody need that as a profession?

The NYPD is leaking oil as a consequence of huge retirement and resignation numbers. New York City is a harmful place now. It’s about to get so much worse.

Joe Nugent

The exodus from the NYPD is a tragic and revealing testomony of how the left-wing nut-jobs have ruined the premier police division within the nation, which in flip has resulted within the deterioration of the standard of life within the metropolis.

The officers who can’t retire but and might’t afford to stop are working beneath circumstances which have gutted the morale of the division and tremendously decreased the motivation to carry out in an efficient manner.

NYPD officers must be revered for his or her position in saving this metropolis from extinction, however as a substitute they’ve been vilified and hamstrung by people who find themselves now attempting to determine why this metropolis is within the form it’s in. I assume you simply can’t repair silly.
