Woke NYC Democrat Tiffany Cabán wants to make crime victims help their attackers

Amid an alarming spike in violent crimes and shootings in New York City, a candidate for public office wants victimized New Yorkers to bear the burden of the crimes against them.

The radical “public safety” plan put forward by socialist candidate Tiffany Cabán, who’s a shoo-in for a Queens City Council seat in November’s election, would essentially re-victimize the victims of violent crimes in the name of “restorative justice.”

The Democrat’s woke, 48-page manifesto would strip cops and courts of some of their most basic law enforcement roles — like sending violent perps to prison.

“Communities will be empowered to develop individualized strategies to help heal wounds of violence rather than being forced to rely on policing and prisons as the only recourse,” reads the policy from the Democratic Socialists of America-backed candidate in the non-competitive race.

Caban’s plan, titled “A New Vision of Public Safety for New York City,” posits a scenario in which the victim of a violent mugging would be largely responsible for deciding the fate of their assailant.

But the “Kumbaya”-style idea doesn’t include actually getting the assailant off the streets to protect others.

“Example of Use: A person is beat up, suffers a broken rib, and is robbed of his wallet. First, his needs are heard and affirmed, and he works with trained staff to develop a services and healing plan,” Cabán’s proposal reads.

“Then, when he is ready, he participates in restorative justice circles with the person who harmed him and their respective support systems. He asks questions and gets answers, and they develop an accountability and consequences plan.”

City entities including the Mayor’s Office of Criminal Justice and the Human Resources Administration would play a role in the process, according to the proposal.

Maud Maron, a Lower Manhattan City Council candidate, ripped the socialist’s proposal, saying Tuesday it’s a “bad plan that would drastically increase violent crime and make the most vulnerable [New Yorkers] less safe.”

“Robberies will increase if our only response is to ‘hear & affirm’ victims before the ‘restorative Justice circle,’” she wrote in the tweet.

Cabán did not immediately respond to inquiries.

After winning her June Democratic primary, Cabán faces a November general election to represent District 22, which includes Astoria and parts of adjoining neighborhoods. If she wins in the heavily Democratic district, Cabán will begin her new role in January.

The DSA-endorsed contender — who nearly won the 2019 Queens district attorney race — has pledged to work with Democratic mayoral nominee Eric Adams, despite his recent declaration of war against the left-wing movement of which she’s a part.

“Nobody’s going to be surprised that we have very different views on how we achieve public safety, and there’s going to be a lot of tension and push-back there,” Cabán, 34, previously told The Post. “At the same time, there are going to be areas where I will be eager to find common ground and I think one of the easiest places to point to is the crisis management system.”

“Eric has been somebody who has supported the expansion of CMS,” she said of the Brooklyn borough president. “He is someone who buys into cure-violence models.”

One of two DSA-endorsed council contenders who won their 2021 primary out of six candidates the socialist group backed, Cabán more broadly supports taking away many of the NYPD’s current duties.

“Police do not solve most crimes and do nearly nothing to help survivors and victims,” reads the former public defender’s platform.

“If someone is in a situation where they need to call 911 because they are afraid for their life, police are unlikely to be able to help.”

At this rate, I’m all for New York City going past the point of no return on their lunatic leftist policies. Sacrifice NYC to serve as an example for the rest of the country.

Zero sympathy.

These people are out of their fucking minds. I find it particularly interesting how this shit is always pushed by sheltered young women who have no clue how the word works. I wonder - would any of these women who push this shit be on board with treating rapists like this?

“Example of Use: A person is beat up, suffers a broken rib, and is robbed of his wallet. First, his needs are heard and affirmed, and he works with trained staff to develop a services and healing plan,” Cabán’s proposal reads.

“Then, when he is ready, he participates in restorative justice circles with the person who harmed him and their respective support systems. He asks questions and gets answers, and they develop an accountability and consequences plan.”

Since the elections are rigged in NYC she’s guaranteed to win.

Sounds like a great idea - with violent crime soaring in NYC. Send out the cuddle squad to the criminals and make the victims pay for being victimized.

Voters get the politicians they deserve…except during COVID when normal election procedures are thrown in the trash and fraudulent mail-in ballots carry the day.
