Lawrence Jones: It’s almost like crime is ‘normalized’

Lawrence Jones took to the streets of New York to ask locals about crime and safety in the opening monologue of “Lawrence Jones Cross Country.”

LAURENT JONES: Despite those cold, hard facts on your screen – look at the numbers, the overall crime, the transit crimes, the shooting incidents – they feel like everything is fine. I learned today that all of this is accepted. It’s almost like he’s normalizing. I left that part beyond stunning. Frankly, I did not expect these answers. But I was not the only one. The ex-cops who were there to protect me that day were left speechless. One even said that was why he retired, especially when he heard this:

“Like I said, man, it happens. People always try to save themselves, but, like, the cops are —–, sometimes they deserve it. But I get that they’re trying to protect us, they “do their best. But, to some degree, all cops are b——-, you know. Like, s— happens, like, that’s all I really have to say. “

With everything going on, they still want to defund the police. And just so we’re clear, all of these conversations that we had, it was everyone. It was everyone. I couldn’t find anyone to say crime was… high right now.
