Truth on crime

Mayor Adams needs to ship desk-duty law enforcement officials on patrol in response to hovering crime (“NYPD taps the mop-up crew,” Aug. 29).

What is the aim of this, except the governor fires District Attorney Alvin Bragg, who is continually letting criminals off the hook? Violent criminals are free to roam the streets, due to Bragg and Gov. Hochul.

Instead of Adams worrying about police on desk responsibility, he ought to exit on the streets with no police element and see firsthand what town is really like.Adams is a joke, a political hack. He loves taking part in the cop card when it fits him, however he has let town deteriorate even worse than former Mayor Bill de Blasio.

Pills for teenagers

When the pharmaceutical business satisfied the medical neighborhood that emotional-behavior points had been much like psychological sickness, the gateway was opened for this extreme utilization of those medicine, with out confirmed outcomes or acknowledgment of potential long-term unintended effects, together with potential habit (“Opening eyes to pill popping,” Karol Markowicz, Aug. 30).

Once once more, dad and mom had been deceived by flashy advertising concerning the unproven advantages of medicine for our youth as a method of giving dad and mom some sort of aid from the stress of dealing with kids’s emotional points.

It is equally surprising that so many dad and mom ignored historic information that wholesome consuming and exercising are confirmed treatments for emotional behaviors.

I used to be lucky to teach my niece’s dad and mom concerning the danger within the Nineties once they acquired a notice from the varsity nurse wanting to supply medicine for my niece’s nervousness habits. As a nutritionist, I instructed that we alter her eating regimen. In only one month, her signs stopped.

It may be very unhappy to examine kids who’ve been used as topics in an business whose major goal is new clients, not bettering the well being of children.

Reagan vs. Trump

I learn Steven Hayward’s column on former President Ronald Reagan and Mikhail Gorbachev and saved excited about the distinction in that relationship to the one between former President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin (“They Did It Together,” PostOpinion, Aug. 31).

Reagan was congenial however agency, cordial and fascinating however resilient in his tone, tenor and message to the then-Soviet chief. Contrast that to Trump’s pandering to Putin on a number of events and it’s clear that whereas Reagan and Trump are each former presidents, just one was an actual chief able to attaining stability with a strong rival.

Trump’s newest episode with labeled paperwork is yet one more instance of a carnival barker on the lookout for consideration whereas the United States and the world has moved on. He is a tragic distinction to Reagan, who all the time appeared to rise to the event.

Panthers posse

The hopelessly misguided Park Slope Panthers, modeled after the Guardian Angels, intention “to take the neighborhood again” after an evil vagrant fatally bludgeoned a canine named Moose in Prospect Park (“Paw patrol,” Aug. 28).

The Panthers ought to keep in mind they bought what they voted for within the final mayoral election.

That neighborhood most well-liked the smug vegan Mayor Adams, not Curtis Sliwa and his many years of volunteer crime-fighting.We ought to all say a prayer for Moose, who died by the hands of a rampaging lunatic that the cowardly Adams administration fears confronting, whereas reminding Prospect Park guests of violence to come back in the event that they maintain voting with their hearts, not their minds.
