This just covers the 5 Boro’s of New York City….
Gov. Andrew Cuomo has announced a curfew for New York City, following four nights of sometimes violent protests following the death of unarmed black man George Floyd.
“There’s gonna be a curfew in New York City that we think could be helpful and more importantly there’s going to be an increase in the force in New York City,” the third term Democrat said on the Upstate radio show WAMC The Roundtable.
Cuomo added around 4,000 officers were on duty during last night’s protests, adding: “There will be double that, about 8,000 tonight.”
“It’s from 11 [p.m.] to 5 [a.m.] tonight and then we’ll see where we are tomorrow,” he added. “Last night was a bad night in New York City. It’s just in New York City by the way, not in Upstate,” he explained….
