Coincidentally (or not) the 90s is when white supremacists began infiltrating law enforcement ranks, and it never stopped. They bragged about their strategy, and TheJusticeDept DOJ fbi did nothing What tough on crime laws that put criminals in prison did was stop crime. NYC because incredibly safe.
