Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody gave this surprising response to New York’s anti-cop rampage

Feb 22, 2024

Florida has become a beacon for law and order under Governor Ron DeSantis.

Meanwhile, blue states are attacking the police right and left.

And Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody gave this surprising response to New York’s anti-cop rampage.

The New York Police Department (NYPD) is under siege as criminals run amok in the Big Apple because of Soros-backed prosecutors and soft-on-crime policies.

A record 5,563 officers were injured on the job in New York in 2023 as the city devolves into a war zone.

Injuries are surging among New York police after George Floyd’s death in 2020 sparked the “Defund the Police” movement and Democrats began constantly trashing the brave men and women of law enforcement.

NYPD injuries climbed from 3,933 in 2021 to more than 4,700 in 2022.

Police Benevolent Association President Patrick Hendry told The New York Post that attacks on NYPD officers have become a “full-blown epidemic.”

An expert told the Post that the surge in violence against New York police is driven by “radical protests, an influx of criminal migrants, bail reform, anti-cop rhetoric, and soft-on-crime prosecutors.”

Soros-backed Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg has led a witch hunt against former President Donald Trump while letting violent criminals in his city walk with a slap on the wrist.

He has downgraded the criminal charges in more than half of felony cases to misdemeanors after he became the top prosecutor.

Many frustrated New York police officers dealing with an epidemic of violence are leaving the state to continue their careers in Florida.

“We are seeing a lot of New York’s finest leave the Empire State and head to Florida—more than 230 since July 2022,” Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody said.

More than 2,500 officers left the NYPD in 2023, one of the highest totals in a decade, and a jump of 43% since 2018.

Florida has launched an aggressive program to attract out-of-state police officers to relocate to the Sunshine State where they will be respected.

The Florida Department of Commerce reported that the state has spent more than $27 million trying to lure police officers to relocate.

The state is using a $5,000 recruitment bonus, and $1,000 for career training along with downpayment and closing cost assistance with purchasing a home.

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis celebrated the success of the program in January when he handed a bonus to the 4,000th person to join law enforcement under the program.

“Almost 400 of the 4,000 come from just three states: New York, California, and Illinois,” DeSantis said. “You probably would have guessed that.”

The anti-police policies in New York and other blue states are turning into Florida’s gain.
