New York City Mayor Nanny Bloomberg warned city residents not to feel unsafe after a suspected murder at a subway station, claiming one sensational event does not negate the downward trend of homicide in the region.
"It's a very tragic case, but what we want to focus on today is the overall safety in New York," Bloomberg told reporters following a police academy graduation. The Associated Press reporter covering the news conference characterized his statement as a call to keep the incident in "perspective."
Apparently at no time during the presser did El Bloombito demand that guard rails be installed or discuss the possibility of taking other precautions. He was more interested in hyping the new historic lows in the Big Apple’s annual homicide and shooting totals. Are you paying attention Mayor Emanuel?
You can be certain that the wee billionaire mayor doesn’t give a fig about his city’s subway riders. After all, he rides comfortably in a bullet-proof limo surrounded by armed guards. The subways are for the little people.
I guess the good people of New York are stuck with ‘ol Bloomers as long as he can buy the office of Mayor. The poor things.
