New York Governor Unveils Hate-Crime Unit, Plans Taxpayer-Funded Defense Of Criminal Illegal Immigrants
The focus of Cuomo’s speech was what he described as an “explosion” in hate crimes since Election Day that has prompted the creation of a special police unit to fight the uptick in New York.
New York Police Department Commissioner James O’Neill told a New York radio station on Sunday he was disturbed by the trends.
“We’ve had an uptick in hate crimes, actually a little bit more than an uptick. We’re up 31% from last year. We had at this time last year 250, this year we have 328, specifically against the Muslim population in New York City — we went up from 12 to 25, and anti-Semitic is up, too, by 9% from 102 to 111,” O’Neill said.
“I have no scientific evidence as to why, but you’ve been paying attention to what’s been going on in the country over the last year or so and the rhetoric has increased, and I think that might have something to do with it,” O’Neill added.
