AS YOU'RE ALL AWARE, THE CITY, STATE AND FEDERAL AUTHORITIES HAVE DEMANDED THE CLOSURE OF NON-ESSENTIAL BUSINESSES AND PLACED RESTRICTIONS ON MOST OTHERS, WHILE INDIVIDUALS HAVE BEEN REMANDED TO HOME CONFINEMENT AND TO PRACTICE "SOCIAL DISTANCING" DURING THE BRIEF OUTDOOR EXCURSIONS WE'RE ALLOWED.
THESE SWEEPING DRACONIAN MEASURES THREATEN TO FOREVER ALTER OUR COUNTRY IN A WAY THAT NO VIRUS ALONE EVER COULD. THE PRESIDENT'S ATTEMPTS TO PROVIDE ENCOURAGEMENT TO MEMBERS OF THE GENERAL PUBLIC -- BY SUGGESTING THE POSSIBILITY OF A MORE OPTIMISTIC OUTLOOK FOR A RETURN TO NORMALCY IN THE WEEKS TO COME -- HAVE BEEN SHOUTED DOWN, CRITICIZED AND RIDICULED BY THE MEDIA AT LARGE, AND VOCALLY DISREGARDED BY NYC MAYOR BILL DE BLASIO.
FOR HIS PART, DE BLASIO HAS MAINTAINED A SINGULARLY PETULANT TONE THROUGHOUT THE CRISIS AND HAS RENEGED ON HIS ASSURANCES OF TRANSPARENCY, REFUSING TO RELEASE STATISTICS RELATED TO THE NUMBERS OF AVAILABLE HOSPITAL BEDS AND VENTILATORS AND SEEMS TO BE REFUSING TO ACKNOWLEDGE WHETHER OR NOT AVAILABLE INFORMATION FROM THE CDC AND OTHER SOURCES IS ACCURATE.
IN THIS EPISODE AND IN DAILY EPISODES TO COME, WE'LL BE REVIEWING THESE DEVELOPMENTS, AS WELL AS PROVIDING OUR USUAL TOP-NOTCH COVERAGE OF NEW YORK CITY CRIME. IN THE INTEREST OF PROVIDING A WIDER VARIETY OF ENTERTAINMENT DURING THIS INTERESTING MOMENT, NYC CRIME REPORT WILL ALSO PROVIDE ADDITIONAL CONTENT, INCLUDING "BEST-OF" PODCASTS, PERHAPS A COUPLE OF RERELEASES OF CLASSIC NYCCR, THE FUNNY AND INSANE "2 WOKE 2 F" AND A UNIQUE AND FUN PODCAST CALLED "THE THRILL OF THE KILL" WHICH I PRODUCE AND WOULD LOVE TO SHARE WITH ALL OF YOU.
THESE BONUS SHOWS WILL BE LABELED AS SUCH TO PREVENT ANY CONFUSION. AS I MENTIONED BEFORE, THE SHOW NYC CRIME REPORT WILL CONTINUE AS USUAL, AND WHEN WE TURN A CORNER, THIS FEED WILL GO BACK TO NORMAL. IN THE MEANTIME, I HOPE YOU ENJOY THESE OTHER CREATIONS, AND STAY ALIVE NO MATTER WHAT OCCURS. I WILL FIND YOU.

TIMES SQUARE FACE-SLASH
A man was slashed in the face in Times Square, leaving him with a gash that required 75 stitches to close. The slasher fled and remains at large.
The 20-yr-old man and the knifeman got into an argument on 8th Ave and 42nd St. which escalated into a physical fight before the suspect cut the victim. It's unclear what the argument was about, but police sources say that the victim has a criminal record, according to the NY Post.
NYPD released a surveillance photo of the suspect.
My name is Keith Raniere. I founded a multilevel marketing organization called NXIVM which law enforcement authorities, the press, the public at large and, frankly everybody except myself and Wikipedia consider to be some sort of "sex cult." On June 19, 2019, I was convicted of a few crimes, - TOTAL BULLSHIT, obvi - like sex trafficking, conspiracy and conspiracy to commit forced labor. Do I look like that kinda guy? Seriously. Look at me. Looook at meeeee.... You're getting sleepy.

SUCKS ABOUT CITIES
INVOLUNTARY COMMITMENT to lunatic asylums mostly ended as advances in anti-crazy medications, coupled with the notion that locking up raving lunatics was unnecessarily punitive, seemed to indicate that it would be much better if nuthouses were basically just emptied the fuck out and most of the nutcases allowed to roam free among unsuspecting NORMAL people. Another factor was the fact that most state-run asylums or whatever were shitholes with poorly-trained, shitty staff with shitty attitudes.
Unfortunately, it turns out these psychos, left to their own devices, often don't take their necessary meds, and therefore don't blend especially well with non-psycho society, with the throwing of rocks and the breaking of glass and you wind up with homeless fuckers galore and the rest in jail.
