New Yorkers Have Been Breathing Freer Air Over The Last 2 Weeks

By Chris Rossini

Robert Wenzel always points out that government vs. government battles should be cheered. The more they fight amongst themselves, the better off the rest of us are.

Well the NYPD has been grappling with NYC's Clintonian Mayor De Blasio.

The New York Times reports that as a result of the fight, the NYPD has been ignoring "low-level offenses" for the last two weeks:
For the seven days ending Sunday, officers made 2,401 arrests citywide, compared with 5,448 in the same week a year ago, a 56 percent decline. 
Hold on a second!! 

Where's the chaos? 

Why aren't the neocons or progressives cranking out stories about Muslims and businessmen beating and cheating people on the streets?
For criminal infractions, most precincts’ tallies for the week were close to zero. Citywide, there were 347 criminal summonses written, compared with 4,077 in the same week a year ago, according to Police Department statistics. Parking and traffic tickets also dropped more than 90 percent, the statistics showed.
New Yorker's have had 2 weeks of freer air.

If they could only come to the conclusion that is staring them right in the face: Government police are siphons. Demand that they resign. Break the monopoly. Demand market competition where private protection services, that charge a market price, and that don't have immunity to kill or aggress against anyone, take over.

  1. Any metrics on how much revenue was not collected? Perhaps the hoi polloi are shell-shocked. Does it also mean that the police won't get any performance bonuses for missing their quotas?
