On Thursday, New York Mayor Bill de Blasio bragged about releasing criminals onto the city’s streets in an effort to combat coronavirus and claimed the city is safer for it.
In April, he released 1,500 inmates due to the pandemic, the New York Post reported.
According to the Post:

Mayor Bill de Blasio’s office announced Friday that more than 1,500 inmates have been released from city jails in three weeks — shrinking the number of incarcerated to its lowest level in 70 years.
“Largely through efforts from judges, district attorneys, defenders, DOC and New York State DOCCS, over 1,500 people have been released from jail since March 16,” the Mayor’s Office of Criminal Justice touted in a fact sheet posted online. “Today the jail population is at a number last seen in 1949.”
The result? A post at the Gateway Pundit tells us:
But de Blasio thinks THIS is actually better, and he bragged about it:

Former NYC Police Commissioner Bernard Kerik called for de Blasio to be removed from office:
.@NYGovCuomo Please listen to @NYCMayor’s words. He is either completely delusional or believes that New Yorkers are idiots. He needs to be recalled, or whatever it takes to remove him from power and stop his intentional destruction of New York City. https://t.co/Yy5iescnj2

He’s not the only one calling for Comrade de Blasio’s removal. GOP Rep. Lee Zeldin also thinks he should be removed from office, Fox News reported:
With the violence showing no sign of abating and claiming a 1-year-old Brooklyn boy among its victims, Zeldin has doubled down on his call to remove the mayor.
“I don’t believe New York City is going to survive the remainder of Mayor de Blasio’s term in office,” he told Fox News. “Certainly there are individuals who live in New York City who will not literally survive without any type of a change in the way New York City approaches policing, law and order, safety and security.”
Mayor DeBlasio is destroying our great city from the inside out. New York City will not make it through the remainder of his term. He needs to be immediately removed from office to save the city and protect the people who live there!pic.twitter.com/ktQbuvXFIj
