Gov. Andrew Cuomo denounced New York City Mayor de Blasio and the NYPD as ineffective in the face of the nightly looting. The governor said he offered help from the National Guard, an option de Blasio opposes. "The NYPD and the mayor did not do their job last night, I believe that," Cuomo said at his briefing in Albany. "You have 38,000 NYPD people. It is the largest police department in the United States of America. Use 38,000 people and protect property." Cuomo and de Blasio are frequently at odds, but the governor was especially forceful in accusing his fellow Democrat of underestimating the problem. On Monday, an 11 p.m. curfew — the city's first in decades — failed to prevent destruction as groups of people smashed their way into shops, including Macy's flagship Manhattan store. Police said nearly 700 people were arrested and several officers were injured during the chaos Monday night and early Tuesday.
