De Blasio: ‘Our Young People Need To Be Reached, They Don’t Need To Be Policed’

‘We’ve got to do a lot of things differently if we want to change the reality for so many of our young people’

EXCERPT:

DE BLASIO: "Our young people need to be reached, they don't need to be policed. They need to be reached and supported and nurtured. And that's what we're doing, with not only a billion dollars you're talking about, but another half billion beyond that to create recreation centers, places young people can go that are positive, to create broadband access for young people in public housing. We've got to do a lot of things differently if we're going to change the reality for so many of our young people in the society, and one of the places we were able to find that money was in our police budget.”
