We get a lot of this due to the fact that the police can’t stop and frisk anymore. Crime is up, but the stats show it’s going down since things get deranked and manipulated. Just look at the billion dollar NYCHA mess DeBlasio has on his hands. This is what happens when you have poor leadership, people take advantage of weakness.

DeBlasio will be putting this poor unfortunate perp up for a NYCHA apartment with a reduced fare metrocard, reduced fare ride share and car share with annual fees waived and a seat at Brooklyn Tech or Stuyvesant High School.
