As a former New Yorker I can say one thing: the city is destroying itself bit by bit…
Bill De Blasio and the other members of the leftist mob controlling New York have done everything in their power to make the city completely unlivable…
Things like enforcing city-wide vaccine mandates for a ‘vaccine’ that doesn’t even work…
People are losing their jobs, being refused entry into businesses, and living through hell because the bureaucRATS that have infested our society can wave pens and make decisions for other people.
Now the city seems to be having regrets about their tyrannical policy…
According to the newest reports, New York City officials appear to be walking back their policies which would see 5,000 unvaccinated NYPD personnel fired from the force.
On a normal day the city could stand to lose these officers, which represent around 10% of the force, but surging crime due to the liberal policies suffocating New York mean that they can’t afford to lose 5,000 personnel.
Responses to the news were mixed:
City Hall has dragged this out for months – since de Blasio – so they could pick a time to quietly let it leak that unlike EVERY other city agency, the NYPD will not have an enforceable vaccine mandate. It’s not a city, it’s a police force with a mayor.https://t.co/MGsdwT6l3C

In an ideal world, ALL vaccine mandate related firings should be on hold or undone.
But in the world we live in, only “law enforcement” gets away with not following the law:https://t.co/r6SFVS2hAt

The New York Post claims:
“In a nutshell, no decisions will be made, no further members will be forced to leave until further notice,” said a veteran NYPD sergeant, explaining the unwritten rule.
“There hasn’t been any memo, just basically keep everything status quo and if issues arise we will revisit it down the road.”
The NYPD stands to lose nearly 5,000 cops and city employees if the mayor’s office stubbornly enforces the mandate for a vaccine that has utterly failed to stop the spread of the coronavirus. But plan is being put on pause. https://t.co/3R1ftcxOQD

Trending Politics explains:
New York City is retreating on vaccine mandates, but only out of dire necessity.
As the nation’s largest city comes into the grips of a violent crime wave that includes mass shootings, there comes a report that the mayor plans to shelve the plan to fire thousands of police officers who either refused to get the Covid-19 vaccine or to report their status to their employer.
