ALERT: National Guard Called Up

Red light

( – Showcasing how Democrats have turned liberal bastions into booming crime hubs, New York Governor Kathy Hochul had to resort to deploying the National Guard alongside New York State Police forces in an effort to enhance security measures.

As reported by ABC News, this initiative forms part of Governor Hochul’s strategy to bolster safety in response to a worrisome uptick in criminal activities within the New York City subway system and reassure users amid growing concerns over transit crimes.

In an address that extended beyond half an hour, Hochul outlined a strategic five-point agenda aimed at increasing subway safety. Through a tweet, she summarized the plan’s components:

  1. Boosting the presence of public safety personnel.
  2. Proposing new legislation to safeguard commuters and workers.
  3. Expanding the installation of security cameras.
  4. Fostering better cooperation among agencies to ensure offenders face consequences.
  5. Broadening the scope of SCOUT Teams.

Hochul also expressed her intolerance towards the recent surge in bold and violent incidents affecting subway users.

She recounted engaging with city and subway authorities over the span of six days to strategize on combating recurrent criminal behavior, with a focus on deterrence and the protection of subway passengers.

“I am redeploying nearly 1,000 members of the New York State Police, MTA Police, and MTA National Guard to conduct bag checks in the city’s busiest transit stations,” Governor Hochul stated in an attempt to curb the rising tide of transit-related crimes.

In the backdrop of this announcement, the New York City Police Department (NYPD) recently reported catching three individuals connected to the death of a 45-year-old subway commuter. Found unconscious, the victim was later declared dead at a medical facility.

Furthermore, a startling discovery of a human leg on a Bronx subway track prompted a temporary halt in subway operations, as reported by NBC New York.

Additionally, the New York Post covered the arrest of a Brooklyn man accused of assaulting a cellist in a subway station. This individual had a history of arrests for theft, criminal contempt and other assaults.
