About 300 NYPD Officers Retire After Realizing that the City is Turning into a Third World Hellscape

John Binder of Breitbart News revealed that NYPD officers are leaving the police force in droves.

New York Post reported that 272 active NYPD officers have filed for retirement ever since riots over the death of George Floyd have kicked off over the past month.

At a similar period in 2019, 183 officers filed for retirement, marking a 50 percent increase in retirements at this point last year.
