AOC is furious that the NYPD’s budget hasn’t been cut more. “Defunding police means defunding police,” she said in June.
A 1-year-old is dead. Davell Gardner was sitting in his stroller when three suspects hopped out of an SUV on Sunday night and opened fire into a crowd at a barbeque, killing the poor toddler.

AOC imagines that we’ll magically erase crime with an army of social workers and more money for schools, even though we spend more for education and welfare than almost anywhere in the nation.
