As a resident of Cleveland, I agree with each phrase that your columnist Bob McManus wrote in his critique of the latest New York Occasions protection of crime in Cleveland (“NYT Blind Spot,” Jan. 5).
Cleveland has the very best baby poverty charge within the nation, a incontrovertible fact that far-left liberals like Ohio Sen. Sherrod Brown and Rep. Marcia Fudge — now nominated for a Biden cupboard place — have been sadly unwilling to handle to any impact. They’re radical failures.
As to The New York Occasions, it’s not written for the individuals who really dwell on the streets of the large cities and have seen what McManus describes, however for yoga-practicing elites who learn best-selling non-fiction books, attend artwork museums and assist limitless abortions.
Thank God that Ohio Gov. Mike DeWines has simply signed the state’s first “stand your floor” regulation, permitting Clevelanders to defend themselves in opposition to this surge in crime.

Trump’s Ga. disgrace
Now, is there any query of the deviousness of President Trump to strain a fellow Republican to carry out an unlawful act (“‘Fellas, I Need 11K Votes,’ ” Jan. four)?
Pure and easy. Simply because Trump stated the Georgia voting rely was fallacious, with none proof, doesn’t make it so. The details are the details. The information spoke for themselves, confirmed by his personal Republican colleagues.
This goes past what any earlier president in historical past has achieved. He has been caught within the act of eliciting an unlawful act. If this isn’t the act of a determined, and devious particular person, then what’s?
This absolutely goes past him attempting to show a hurricane was to hit Alabama with a doctored climate map. Sufficient. Is that this the president of america or an autocrat we revolted in opposition to some 244 years in the past?

NYPD goes West
The already-decimated NYPD is shedding extra much-needed presence on the streets by sending detectives out to California to query “Soho Karen” who’s being charged with — what? (“NYPD aids Calif. bust of ‘Karen,’ ” Jan. eight)
Probably larceny or assault for touching a 14-year-old boy, accusing him falsely of grabbing her cellphone?
The town is broke, we’re within the midst of a 1980s-type crime wave and our mentally disturbed leaders are losing cash and sorely wanted police presence, calling what she did a hate crime as a result of the younger man is black.
This type of nonsense goes on on a regular basis in each massive metropolis on this planet, however to pacify Mayor de Blasio, the commissioner has to play this tune. Come on, New York — get up and eliminate these “woke” bumbling politicians earlier than the town turns into completely unlivable. It’s getting too shut now.

Kill Kim protection
I like studying The Publish and offer you kudos for reporting on the information that different papers suppress or is not going to report.
Nevertheless, I fail to grasp how Kim Kardashian’s want to divorce her husband is worthy of front-page information (“Kim & Kanye go bust,” Jan. 6). Much more disturbing is how Kardashian chooses to decorate or not gown.
No marvel adolescent suicide is on the rise. When younger individuals expertise life as meaningless, dwelling and the challenges of life grow to be overwhelming and never definitely worth the ache.
I hate to say it, however these people shouldn’t be the position fashions that our youth look as much as. So please don’t make them greater than a blip within the information.
