The Issue: The discussion of law and order at last week’s Democratic debate for mayor.
If any one of these five candidates becomes mayor, it will be the continuation of the de Blasio era (“Crime focus of Dem debate,” June 11).
Many of them are in favor of defunding the Police Department, which is why there is so much crime, and shootings are rising every day.
The people of this city had better wake up when they go to vote. Haven’t we had enough of this? When will it stop? These candidates will not put an end to all this.
Thinking that a Republican candidate could not win the mayoral race in New York, I switched my party to Democrat so I could vote.
After listening to all the Democratic candidates during the debate last week, I want to immediately switch my party back to Republican and vote for Curtis Sliwa.
He is our only hope to live in a city that values law and order. He won’t cave to these left-wing zealots who will further destroy our city and our quality of life.
We need a mayor who can bring back the tourists, help our economy and ensure a better life for all of us.
We cannot let the city go into further decline with any of these Democratic candidates. Please, wake up and vote for someone who will lift all of us up.
The fact that Andrew Yang is slipping in the polls is the only good news in the mayoral race.
Eric Adams is talking about crime, while Yang thinks the biggest issues for the city are AI and climate change.
If Yang wins, people will be dreaming of “the good old days” under Mayor de Blasio, formerly thought to be the bottom of the barrel.
I am not impressed by any of the Democratic candidates for mayor of New York City.
What each of them is proposing will cause further crime, divisiveness and decay, raise taxes, make life more miserable for residents and visitors and drive more families out of the city.
What does it take to get through to the New York voter? How bad does it have to get before they abandon a party that is becoming more idiotic with every election cycle?
Take a look at cities and states that have been doing well under Republican leadership and consider voting Republican.
Even Adams is falling for it. He said the “solution” to city violent crime is to reach out to youth and improve mental-health services.
These chic answers are a guarantee that innocent New Yorkers will continue to be murdered, raped, thrown onto subway tracks and maimed.
Get the violent off the streets first. Whether they are criminal or mentally ill, sort that out afterward. Get them away from the rest of us first.

I generally agree with The Post’s endorsements, but I am baffled by its support of Adams for mayor.
His stance on the NYPD changes at his convenience. One day he’s anti-cop and a fierce critic of the NYPD (even though he was employed by the NYPD), and then he switches and comes across as pro-police.
Can New Yorkers elect a mayor who lacks common sense and leadership skills? His suggestion last summer to New Yorkers to settle disputes about illegal fireworks on their own and not call the police was deadly. Shatavia Walls, 33, died as a result.
Adams lacks the moral compass and common sense required to be a winning mayor. The people of New York deserve better.
