Surprised? I think not. NYPD recruiting hits lowest in history

New York City – The number of people interested in taking the NYPD exam is cratering, likely hitting a new low as the city struggles to fill the positions left vacant by senior officers leaving in droves, The New York Post has reported.

In 2023, the NYPD has given the Police Officer Exam just twice — once in March and again last week.

The NYPD expected about 3,000 test takers for the winter exam – but only about 1,300 signed up.

During the 2020 presidential campaign we heard that Sleepy Joe had 40+ years of foreign policy experience. Every fvcking year he was wrong. Whoever is calling the shots in the White House really is aiming for WWIII.

VLADIMIR Putin vowed to use his "sufficient stockpile" of cluster bombs "if necessary" in a chilling message to the West today.

The tyrant said Russia would use the munitions - which are banned more than 100 countries - if they were deployed against his forces in Ukraine.

Ukraine received controversial cluster bombs last Thursday - less than a week after the US said it would donate the weapons to help in the fight against Russia.

The munitions - which can release large numbers of smaller bombs over a great area - are widely banned as unexploded “bomblets” can linger on the ground, detonating years later on civilians.

Kyiv said it will use the weapons to blast enemy soldiers as it tries to take back areas of Ukraine - but said it will not use them on Russian territory.

Putin told state TV that Moscow would respond if necessary.

He said: "I want to note that in the Russian Federation there is a sufficient stockpile of different kinds of cluster bombs.

"We have not used them yet. But of course if they are used against us, we reserve the right to take reciprocal action."
