"If you would have asked me on Saturday, did we have a need for a curfew, I would have said we didn't see any looting on Saturday…only Sunday night, it started to turn," he told CNN's Chris Cuomo."Now we’ve made the adjustment. I think this is the right approach that will help us to really lead this moment out and get back to a more normal place," he said.

The citywide curfew will now remain in place for the remainder of the week, extending from 8 p.m. each night to 5 a.m. the next morning.He emphasized that the looting was only done by a “infinitesimal” amount of people, and that the vast majority of New York protesters were peaceful.

De Blasio declined to share exact numbers on the size of the police presence in the city Tuesday night, but called the presence “vast” and described the number as “the highest number of police we have had over the last five days.”He added that he felt having National Guard troops in the city would have negative unintended consequences, and raise"a real risk of violence and someone losing their life."

I would go to the cops on either side. That bridge is too scary. Don't know which side to pick Good! Looters and rioters are not protesters. Good! Arrest them all! They destroyed their city. Terrorists. Love it. They are disobeying a curfew 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂 Nice headline. Just use 'Click-here' in big neon green font. The people need a honest news source. Like our presidental candidates, we have no good options. Garbagee

The real disgrace to this is Soro’s & Democrats paid Antifa & BLM Rioters & Looters, burning down building especially poor black Neighborhood building. White Antifa Thugs setting fire to Black neighborhood & burning their businesses while thy beg them not to and U blame Cops *Rioters Fascism at its best. Must be one of Putin's ideas that Trump got with the dipshit's conversation the other night.

Good! Arrest every fucking last one of them! How about people breaking the law violating curfew are trapped by the police....the police waits patiently waits for them to go home. CNN is so disingenuous - you think serious focus and arrests on looters and rioters had anything to do with it? Blow the bridge

Jump Don’t worry... I’m sure JoeBiden will save us. He did nothing for 48 years... but here he comes!! Good. Time to make some arrest. Protesters my ass, CNN is fake news OMG trapping to KILL These protests are unexpected gift for the US prosecution system! Police will identify all those who participated and will charge all of them. I think protesters achieved nothing but problems. Diplomacy is more effective in any disputes

Good Watch This: from 2017, Chaziel Sunz shined the light on who pays for Antifa, Black Lives Matter, what the plan is of the Democratic Party using the groups. Hahahahahaha Good! These arnt protestors, they are thugs at this point! CNN stop inciting violence. It's time you accepted Democrats lost the last election .

You’re not adding to this at all? Nothing? No sense of decorum? Lucky protesters Lucky protesters Really? Nothing? Zero transparency. Still race baiting? The Brooklyn end was open . The local NY news showed that It’s about time 👏👏👏👏👏👏 And this is why I’m keeping my fat ass at home. Sorry Remember Tacoma narrows bridge

Good! Jump for it!!! 咋想起了selma… Arrest the morons!!!! NYPD is the best! Good capture. Hahahah Fish in a barrel!!! Start shooting NYGovCuomo call them off. Let them leave the bridge. Neither side need risk injury. The purpose in this is to what incite chaos or trap arrest protestors for exercising their rights? Smdh either way...
