Rep. Mondea Jones changes the tone of Defund the Police

Awakened Big Apple Democrats who once helped the police out loud suddenly changed their tone.

Rep. Mondea Jones represents the cozy district of Westchester County, but the repartition will run for reelection as a carpet bagger with competitive open seats in Lower Manhattan and Park Slope. I was forced to do that.

Suddenly, I faced a tough primary association against former Mayor Bill de Brasio and state legislator Euline Niou — Jones now says, "Black Americans are police officers. I don't want to get out of the community. "

"Black Americans don't want to send police officers out of the community"He sought funding to the police station after President Byden's 2022 Federal State speech. Added.

"It's about polling," Curtis Sliwa, founder and former mayor of Guardian Angels, told the post. "His consultant tells him, hey, you have to start moving towards the center."
