WASHINGTON, D.C. – Freshman Rep from New York’s 14th District Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, or AOC as she’s affectionately known, isn’t stopping with the Green New Deal. Citing dangers “worse than any war in human history” AOC blames law enforcement officers for a staggering 37% of all emissions, given how often patrol cars are running to maintain 24 hour coverage.
She went on to passionately say, “These numbers do not even include take home cars or Federal agencies, but when the final results are in, we anticipate nothing less than a criminal amount of emissions from those that purport to ‘save lives.'”
BNN reached out to the NYPD’s 114th Precinct in Astoria, represented by Cortez, and it would seem the rank and file aren’t on the same page. While command staff were hesitant to comment we did get a statement from an Officer Stalin who said, “First they gave us these damn tiny cars that barely fit NYPD on them and now this!? My uniform allowance can’t support the kind of footwear necessary for what this monster wants.”
BNN will be following the story closely. The date set for “All Cops Walk Day” is tentatively on July 4, 2019, where AOC also plans to stop all fireworks because of noise pollution.
