Can somebody explain something to me. Everyday – whether here or in the NY Daily News there is a story about a robbery, rape, murder, assault, abuse, and on and on. So how can Mayor DeButthead and Police Commissioner O’Neill say that crime is down? Are they only counting murders and not other crimes against people that will probably scar them, make them scared to travel or go places they usually went and devastate them for life? Also, I’m not a racist or bigot at all (I have friends of every race, culture and religion) but every robbery or crime is done by somebody hispanic or black.


Your last sentence is extremely racist and untrue. Also, even if a crime were reported every day, there are 365 days in a year, and 8,500,000 people in the city. That’s a very low rate.
Crime being down does not mean that crime no longer exists.

The Big picture

and how about crime nationwide, want to check the demographics and see who is committing the majority of that crime also?

Why does that sound completely false??

>every robbery or crime is done by somebody hispanic or black

Are Trumptards always this gullible


Did they ever catch the T-Mobile store store robbers? How about Guitar Center thieves? Pharmacy shooter? Chase bank robbers?

Best Buy harasses paying customers at the door, but lets people walk away with 17 phones from their storage cabinets?

How do they harass? I use this branch for most of my BB purchases and 100% of my geek squad. They are amazing.


Further reports indicate that Apple is furious. They want the 3 phones recovered immediately.
