The Reason Why New York Is Sending The National Guard Into The Subways Will Make Your Blood Boil (Video)

Hundreds of New York National Guard members will be heading to the New York City subway system, Gov. Kathy Hochul announced Wednesday. That’s just one part of a series of changes coming to the city’s trains after a string of high-profile crimes across the New York City subway system — including two back-to-back shootings that killed two people in the Bronx and a slashing in Brooklyn.

Hochul, a Democrat, said she will deploy 750 members of the National Guard to the subways to assist the New York Police Department with bag searches at entrances to busy train stations.

“For people who are thinking about bringing a gun or knife on the subway, at least this creates a deterrent effect. They might be thinking, ‘You know what, it just may just not be worth it because I listened to the mayor and I listened to the governor and they have a lot more people who are going to be checking my bags,’” Hochul said at a news conference.

This is the official reason why the national guard was sent to New York’s subway nut rhe crime in New York is sky rocketing for years and they’ve never sent the National Guard.

Some sources alleged that there are incoming terrorist threats from Hamas and that’s one of the reason why they’ve taken these security measures!

The deployment of the National Guard would bolster an enhanced presence of NYPD officers in the subway system. The governor said she will also send 250 state troopers and police officers from the Metropolitan Transportation Authority, a state agency, to help with the bag searches.

Police in New York have long conducted random bag checks at subway entrances, though passengers are free to refuse and leave the station, raising questions of whether the searches are an effective policing tactic in a subway system that serves over 3 million riders per day.

The newest effort is part of a multi-pronged approach to subway safety announced by Hochul Wednesday, which will include bag checks in busy New York City subway stations, new legislation and expanded mental health outreach.
