Oh, the hypocrisy on the left! Leftists love nothing more than TELLING everyone what is best for them but do not want those same principles held to them.
Why would they? Lefty coastal elites don’t want a bunch of smelly illegal immigrants living in their gated communities. They should be with the rest of us rabble.
Lefty’s also want fewer cops, except for the fact that the fewer police will impact already low-income, crime-ridden areas worse.
One such leftist in New York City (go figure), recently was revealed for the hypocrite she really is.
Yuh-Line Niou, House wannabe who preaches cop 'defund', fled from Harlem https://t.co/8v1pV6rGLR

Per the New York Post:
A left-wing state lawmaker who has pushed for cutting police funding first moved to the district she is seeking to represent in Congress because “safety issues” near “the projects” in Harlem prompted her to shack up with her tech bro then-fiancé in the Financial District, The Post has learned.
Assemblywoman Yuh-Line Niou (D-Lower Manhattan) told a local publication in 2016 — when she was campaigning to initially get elected to her current seat — that she headed to the wealthier Manhattan neighborhood because she witnessed a pair of disturbing crimes and fell victim to one.
So let me get this straight, Assemblywoman Niou (assemblyperson?) lived in the hood, witnessed, and was a victim of crime, moved to Manhattan, and now wants to defund the police? For real?
Why do people continue to vote for idiots like this? Are the alternatives that bad? How could that possibly be? I realize New York is a lefty hell hole, but there have got to still be good, law-abiding, smart people there, right? Maybe not.
Four years later, her since-updated issues section for her most recent Assembly campaign read, “She believes that we are long overdue for police reform in this country and that we need to defund millions from the police in order to put critical funding back into our social services, education, and housing.”
Niou bid to represent the newly configured Lower Manhattan-Brooklyn House seat has earned endorsements from “Sex and the City” star and former gubernatorial candidate Cynthia Nixon, left-wing group New York Communities for Change and state Sen. Julia Salazar (D-Bushwick), among others.
Well, an endorsement from a washed-up television star, no wonder people are voting for her! Nothing says political acumen quite like taking an endorsement from the third girl on Sex in the City.
In 2016, while vying to replace disgraced ex-Assemblyman Sheldon Silver, she recalled to the local outlet that two separate frightening “incidents” drove her out of her apartment on 106th Street and 1st Avenue in East Harlem.
In one, she claimed she “watched a girl get raped on a pile of garbage, right across the street from the projects,” where she was living. In the other, the candidate said she witnessed a man “slam a girl’s head … into an ATM machine” and rob her before fleeing.
“We have a lot of safety issues,” Niou reportedly said in April 2016. “Some of the things that happen on the Lower East Side are very parallel, so these are all incidents that kind of led to me moving down to the Financial District and moving in with my partner.”
There you go! Hey all you poor people, if you don’t like crime, just move in with your boyfriend in a better neighborhood. Duh!
Certainly defunding the police and pumping money into “social services” will fix the crime in certain areas of New York City.
Solid plan, solid plan indeed!
