New York City’s mayoral candidate Andrew Yang had plenty to say at a recent press conference that he held at Times Square, in regards to the aftermath of the haunting shooting that left three tourists injured.
Andrew Yang explained how the chilling shooting on Saturday showed clearly how the city was not capable of affording any attempt to defund the police, despite citizen’s claims of doing so in light of the wave of attacks taking place. Moreover, the mayor candidate hopeful explained during his appearance at Crosswords of the World how the situation was indefinitely getting tense and it was time that change was brought into the picture.

“The bitter truth is that New York City just can’t defund the police right now,” he added at a location which was just minutes away from where the Times Square shooting occurred. This is where an unidentified gunman had opened fire, injuring three tourists including a young girl who was reportedly 4 years old.
“Whenever I get the opportunity to speak to the New Yorkers, I receive a very different type of message every day,” Andrew went on to explain.
“Many New Yorkers appear to be really concerned about the increasingly violent crime rates, issues relating to homelessness, and also just those petty crime incidents as well.”
“We all see this taking place on a daily basis and it’s about time that our leaders step up to the plate at this very moment!”
Reports confirmed how little Skye Martinez who was just 4 years old was standing in line with loved ones so that she could shop for her toys at Line Friends. But all of a sudden, a gunman entered the scene arguing with three other individuals and then opted to open fire over the crowd standing by.
Tragically, the bullets struck her, alongside two other bystanders standing nearby. Thankfully, the victims involved, including young Skye, are all expected to survive.
