if there is no crime then bloomie should change his security detail to ninjas only. No need for firearms to protect him...

I truthfully believe all the stats the mayor's office has is fudged. Something tells me it is not as safe has he and his cronies portray.

perhaps they are viewing it as percentage points... Like (this is not true, just an inflated example for easy math) lets say last year, there were 100,000 armed robberies. This year there were 90,000 armed robberies. This is a 10% decrease in crime! This is huge! Crime is going down!

So, while the rest of us view that as still ridiculously unacceptable, in the eyes of a politician, they see 10% decrease = good... and not that it's not good, but it's not good enough, and it certainly isn't good enough to say that people should continue to be unarmed who fear for their life

Why there is nobody else to rob because everyone is broke because of the bad economy that should be top priority for anyone in power?
