NEW HARTFORD, N.Y. (AP) — President Donald Trump’s son Eric Trump has stopped in upstate New York to campaign for incumbent Republican Rep. Claudia Tenney.

With names like the Van Cortlandt Rangers, Jones Street Boys, and the Electric Eliminators, the gangs sported garb to distinguish themselves and, by extension, their turf: tank tops, ripped jeans, camo jackets, silk bathrobes, and baseball uniforms coupled with fierce face paint. In the 1979 film ‘The Warriors,’ now celebrating the 40th anniversary of its release, the city was depicted as an unrecognizable hellscape where crime was rampant, public transit was empty, the streets were strewn with trash, graffiti ruled the parks and trains, and the NYPD were outnumbered. The film’s portrayal of the Big Apple wasn’t so far off the mark. In the 1970s, the city was drowning in debt and had to cut services as well as lay off thousands of police officers and firefighters.

In New York City, defendants will also receive perks – like New York Mets tickets, movie passes and gift cards – for showing up to court. With criminal justice reform sweeping the state, what does that mean for law enforcement and public safety? Saima Anjam, vice president of the Parkside Group, and CBSN New York’s urban affairs expert Mark Peters joined political reporter Marcia Kramer to discuss the effects on this week’s episode of “The Point.” (Credit: CBSN New York) They also talked about the city’s Special One-Time Assistance (SOTA) program that’s now the subject of a lawsuit and a pilot program to replace some delivery trucks with electric cargo bikes.
