Cleveland criminal offense
As a resident of Cleveland, I agree with every single term that your columnist Bob McManus wrote in his critique of the new New York Times coverage of criminal offense in Cleveland (“NYT Blind Location,” Jan. 5).
Cleveland has the highest youngster poverty charge in the nation, a actuality that far-remaining liberals like Ohio Sen. Sherrod Brown and Rep. Marcia Fudge — now nominated for a Biden cabinet position — have been regrettably unwilling to address to any outcome. They are radical failures.
As to The New York Periods, it is not composed for the people who in fact live on the streets of the big cities and have viewed what McManus describes, but for yoga-training elites who study finest-selling non-fiction textbooks, show up at art museums and assist limitless abortions.
Thank God that Ohio Gov. Mike DeWines has just signed the state’s 1st “stand your ground” law, permitting Clevelanders to defend them selves versus this surge in criminal offense.

Trump’s Ga. disgrace
Now, is there any question of the deviousness of President Trump to strain a fellow Republican to carry out an illegal act (“‘Fellas, I Want 11K Votes,’ ” Jan. 4)?
Pure and uncomplicated. Just for the reason that Trump stated the Georgia voting rely was erroneous, without the need of any proof, does not make it so. The details are the specifics. The details spoke for them selves, verified by his personal Republican colleagues.
This goes beyond what any previous president in heritage has done. He has been caught in the act of eliciting an unlawful act. If this is not the act of a desperate, and devious specific, then what is?
This undoubtedly goes outside of him striving to prove a hurricane was to strike Alabama with a doctored weather conditions map. Adequate. Is this the president of the United States or an autocrat we revolted towards some 244 many years in the past?

NYPD goes West
The currently-decimated NYPD is getting rid of a lot more significantly-necessary presence on the streets by sending detectives out to California to concern “Soho Karen” who is currently being billed with — what? (“NYPD aids Calif. bust of ‘Karen,’ ” Jan. 8)
Potentially larceny or assault for touching a 14-yr-previous boy, accusing him falsely of grabbing her cellphone?
The metropolis is broke, we’re in the midst of a 1980s-form criminal offense wave and our mentally disturbed leaders are wasting funds and sorely needed police presence, contacting what she did a hate criminal offense simply because the young gentleman is black.
This sort of nonsense goes on all the time in every huge town in the environment, but to pacify Mayor de Blasio, the commissioner has to perform this tune. Come on, New York — wake up and get rid of these “woke” bumbling politicians ahead of the metropolis will become absolutely unlivable. It is finding way too shut now.

Kill Kim protection
I like looking at The Post and give you kudos for reporting on the information that other papers suppress or will not report.
Nevertheless, I are unsuccessful to comprehend how Kim Kardashian’s motivation to divorce her spouse is worthy of front-web page information (“Kim & Kanye go bust,” Jan. 6). Even more disturbing is how Kardashian chooses to costume or not gown.
No ponder adolescent suicide is on the increase. When young men and women expertise lifetime as meaningless, residing and the problems of everyday living turn out to be mind-boggling and not well worth the agony.
I hate to say it, but these people must not be the function designs that our youth glance up to. So please do not make them extra than a blip in the news.
