  1. The people must know the truth and stop being biased about everything. People must stop victimizing themselves just for who they are or what happened in the past. The past is the past and we must move on, we can’t keep just making the same mistakes over and over. It’s time to move on and learn how to stop the commotion.

    Right now, it’s a fight between us vs the virus, not each other. We need to stop the spread by staying home, social distance, and other precautions. *Do the right thing*

  2. Please stop drinking alcohol specially this penademic time .so everyone can use sense how we can takecare each other

    1. Does alcohol and drinking have to do would everyone taking care of each other in the pandemic that doesn’t make sense

    2. Maggy Fernandez yes it’s make sense. Because when someone get drunk he lost his social distances sense

  3. Yes. But Memorial Day was 3 weeks ago. Any spike from that should of showed by now shouldn’t of it ?

    1. @Jttv Chromo canceled Memorial Day I celebrated it I didn’t cancel it because I don’t listen to people that killed people in nursing homes and talk out of their butt

    1. Reece Christensen SAME WITH ME…ESPECIALLY LIVING IN THE HAMPTONS…NYC AND HERE MAKE UP THE 25,000 complaints…and I have done at least 7…

  4. I think that if that person did not record that video of Floyd his death probably would’ve just been forgotten about that was a very powerful thing I want something it’s on the Internet it’s on there forever

  5. Hey Cuomo, we need marijuana to be apart of the criminal justice reform! You said it yourself, why do we lock up more people than any other nation?

    NYS legislators expect the new cannabis industry to bring $300 million per year in tax revenue when fully rolled out. Which is great news for NY, right? Except that Senator Krueger who has been helping lead the way in cannabis reform has recently (March 12th) revised her bill S1527C to keep similar penalties for marijuana that are in place today. She can be seen speaking at a CannaGather event stating the NYS government spends upwards of $500 million on marijuana enforcement each year! This is a combination of monies spent on policing, prosecutions, and dept of corrections. How is it possible that we are willing to legalize but still spend more on enforcement costs than tax revenue brought in by this new industry, where is the social justice in that? Anyone following the politics of this process of bringing legalized cannabis to NYS has heard all these lawmakers claim “It’s about doing things right” for years now but yet they are willing to submit to the status quo. Whether you are a marijuana user or not does this make sense for our state? I personally don’t see how.

    If NY goes ahead with this legalization plan it will ruin all of the good it can make. I don’t know what the fix/answer is here as these lawmakers know our opinion on marijuana, polls show over 60% support marijuana legalization. This is a very complicated topic and an uncomfortable one for some but I think the people have spoken in both the polls and the simple fact that we won’t let anyone tell us we can’t use marijuana even after decades of war against us. You can keep locking the people/voters/tax payers away but we never let go of our herb, it only becomes more ingrained in our society.

    I come loaded with facts –

    Cost to house inmates in our county jails- County by county (My home county of Suffolk the cost comes in just under $140,000 per yr!)

    1. M S Answer to paragraph one: Do you understand per capital? Oklahoma gets the title of most incarcerations.

    2. @Kim S That’s why I will never set foot in OK, they will never see a dime of vacation money from me. Same goes for many southern states. Private prisons are a terrible thing.

  6. I’m from a small state Rhode Island I watch you every day I think you’re doing a good job and I also say you are very very handsome
