An awake NYC councilor who stands behind the police has been shot by one of her constituents who suffered a horrific subway attack after lawmakers insisted such attacks were “one in a million.”

Tiffany Caban, a Democrat who represents Queens, was condemned by 33-year-old mother of five Elizabeth Gomes over a tweet that read: ‘Subway violence is a one-in-a-million event.

“As a believer in a nonviolent New York, I still think that’s one too many, but let’s not be deterred by fear mongering politicians and corporate media into thinking we have a dangerous, scary public transportation system.”

She sent the tweet after the September 20 attack on Caban, in which killer Waheed Foster was arrested and charged with attempted murder.

He was on parole at the time for beating his grandmother to death, with his release and the attack on Gomes leading to a new condemnation of New York’s soft-touch laws.

Caban, who represents Queen’s 22nd precinct, even added a link to a chart she says proved her point. But the number of attacks on public transit in the city has risen nine percent so far this month compared to last year, with 182 for the 28 days ended Sept. 25, according to the report. NYPD Stats.

The rest of the year the picture is even bleaker.

Official statistics show that the number of attacks has increased by 43.3 percent so far in 2022 – and currently stands at 1,670 for the year so far, compared to a much lower figure of 1,165 for the same period of 2021.

And Gomes was unimpressed by Caban’s tweet, telling the New York Post: ‘The subway system is dangerous and for her to post something like that – it seems to me she doesn’t travel on the subway or have anyone riding it. She doesn’t really understand what it is.

“It just gets worse and worse.”

She added: “People are scared. People are being robbed. People are being shot. People are being molested.’

Against Caban’s call to punish the police, Gomes added: “We need protection. That’s what we’re looking for.
