Last week, progressives were in uproar about the New York Governor’s decision to send the National Guard into the city’s subways. “Militarizing the subway with the National Guard and suggesting a wholesale ban on individuals from accessing public transportation are dangerous misuses of resources which could be better spent addressing these issues at their root,” said one critic.

Those voices have been curiously quiet after footage emerged today of a man being shot in the head during an altercation with another passenger. NYPD eventually showed up on the scene, but it is yet another example of lawlessness on the subway. With transit crime on the rise this year, it’s no wonder that the Governor is taking radical steps to try and curb it. Just as there are no atheists in foxholes, it seems as though there are no defund-the-police activists in subways.
