It’s gonna be ok. Once the NYPD is disbanded, all these shootings and violent crime will stop completely. Everybody is going to be loving and good to each other. The drug dealers and gangs will become our heroes. Life will finally be good. LOL!!!

If it weren’t for my retirement income which is reliant on my being here, I’d be looking to leave as well.
