June 15, 2020 — John Bailey, White Plains CitizeNetReporter Publisher / Editor centers his focus on the following issues:
- LaGuardia Airport has undergone rejuvenation and transformation that makes it unique. We learn of those attributes that make LaGuardia a monumental achievement that was shepherded by NYS Governor Andrew M. Cuomo.
2. The “Say Their Name” Reform Agenda package was passed following the killing of George Floyd and an ongoing pattern of police brutality against minority communities across the nation. These landmark policing reforms is intended to ameliorate inequality in policing and reimagine the state’s criminal justice system. The reforms include:
- Allowing for transparency of prior disciplinary records of law enforcement officers by repealing 50-a of the civil rights law;
- Banning chokeholds by law enforcement officers;
- Prohibiting false race-based 911 reports; and
- Designating the Attorney General as an independent prosecutor for matters relating to the civilian deaths.
Michael Edelman, Esq., Political Analyst / Pundit has much to cover this Monday morning.
- The Hill reports House Democrats are seizing on momentum from nationwide demonstrations over racial injustice to revive an effort to remove 11 Confederate statues in the Capitol building, placed there at the behest of southern states. The effort to remove the statues was resuscitated last Thursday, when members of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) introduced legislation to remove the statues. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) both advised they have no intention to buck the states on the issue. With the Dems the majority in the Congress; the GOP the majority in the Senate is this issue a non-starter, other than a political side show?
- Has this week exposed the divide between Generation Z and the Baby Boomer Generation such that what was once acceptable is no longer? The outcome is a forgone conclusion; Generation Z will win. Can we contemplate the changing demeanor of the nation through those inheriting the power of governance?
- Is the nation’s disgust over the racial divide exacerbated by the killing of people of color likely to “defund” or reduce police budgets to such an extent that the nation will fall into a state of lawlessness and anarchy? Can the nation be weaned toward the civility of the Canadian model, the changes that took place in Ireland? Is there a model for America to emulate?
- Are police asked to contend with issues to which they are overburdened? Contending with the homeless, domestic violence to which the crisis is borne out of psychological issues. The homeless crisis that continues to grow and its social ramification.
- Is there an addiction to the money that is gained by permitting the import of contraband and drugs another form of bigotry? Can it not be stopped? Why is it permitted.
- Were the nation to return to train and employ people to work on infrastructure and other needs at a living wage the path toward a better prospect for individuals and the nation? Why has the nation not moved toward that end? Will it? Must it?
Hezi Aris, Yonkers Tribune Publisher / Editor-at-Large follows thereafter engaged in the latest hyperlocal, state, national, and international news replete with commensurate analysis. From 11am-12Noon.
