Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s (D-NY) district saw a 57% increase in major crime under her tenure, a new study found.

Shootings went up by 47.05%, the study said. […]
“Defunding police means defunding police. It does not mean budget tricks or funny math,” Ocasio-Cortez said in a press release. “If these reports are accurate, then these proposed ‘cuts’ to the NYPD budget are a disingenuous illusion. This is not a victory. The fight to defund policing continues.”
