272 NYPD Officers File for Retirement Since George Floyd’s Death

nypd

New York City police officers are retiring in droves following the death of George Floyd in police custody.

Two hundred and seventy-two uniformed officers have filed retirement papers between May 25, the day Floyd died while he was in police custody, and June 24, according to the New York Post.

The number represents a 49% spike from the same time period last year, the department said.

The relationship between the New York Police Department and city leadership has become strained over the last few years but has intensified since Floyd’s death. The two sides have openly criticized each other, and New York City Bill de Blasio recently promised to cut funding to the department and encouraged reforms such as disbanding the force’s plainclothes unit, which was criticized by at least one police union leader.

NYPD Commissioner Dermot Shea said last week that the criminal justice system in New York City is reaching a “breaking point.”

Right Now There is a “Mad Rush” to Get Out of the Cities

So many wealthy people are rushing to move away from the big cities that it is creating a bit of a “real estate boom” in many suburban areas, small towns and rural communities. 

Fear of COVID-19, a collapsing economy and the tremendous urban violence that we have witnessed in recent weeks have combined to create a frenzy of activity.

Last week, my wife and I heard from a friend in New York City that is all of a sudden desperate to move to another state, and I certainly can’t blame him for wanting to relocate.

If I was in his shoes, I would be wanting to move too.

Lockdowns to Trigger Another Blue State Exodus

The ongoing coronavirus lockdown will trigger another mass exodus from blue states to red states, which already had momentum as blue state residents fled higher taxes.

For one thing, red states will likely reopen their economies first, meaning that they’ll be more jobs available to those who aren’t living comfortably on unemployment checks – and there’s the ever-present fact that many of the red states have a much lower cost of living, not to mention that several of them had a less draconian response to the virus.

As Infowars predicted on April 2, some states will lift their coronavirus lockdowns a lot sooner than others, meaning that they’ll be regional recessions in some parts of the country, especially in states like Illinois which was already facing bankruptcy before the coronavirus due to its millions in unfunded pensions.
