Men in blue, thank you

Very good trevor, good comment. Cops dont get enough respect. Their only trying to earn a living and feed their families.


Its funny when there is a crime, people are crying for protection. When police do their jobs, people are screaming discrimination, racism and police brutality.


-resident The crime happened at 2:40 AM Yes the cop on the beat is a great deterrent but good crime prevention measures like this building management enacted are an even better deterrent as demonstrated in the fact this drug store cowboy came back twice and still didn’t get what he came for. Police can’t be everywhere. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.


We need an increase police patrols! We need rhe beat cop back walking the streets! What really need is Guilliani as mayor again!!


@resident Rudy Giuliani is no longer a crime fighting crusader. Rudy Giuliani and his law firm reap tens of thousands of dollars annually lobbying Congress for the biggest operator of private for profit prisons in America. This makes Rudy a crime profiteer.

Resident, do you have any idea how many officers walking foot patrol it would take to cover a geographic area the size of the 108?
