  1. Having painted “BLM” in front of Trump Towers absolves de Blasio of all responsibility of reality as he is now in fantasy-land.
    How do current shooting numbers compare to the days of Dinkins’ shooting numbers?

    I just looked it up. This year’s shooting incidents are down 75% compared to 27 years ago.

    We need more and better trained police, and higher taxes to pay for the police. We also need to be able to better trace illegal guns and guns used in crimes so we can shut down the gun-runners. The federal database of firearms transactions isn’t even computerized — the Republicans in Congress won’t allow it!

  3. Just about all of these shootings are gang related, and shooting each other is the way these boys like to play. So these shootings do not pose a danger to the general public and is not their problem. The only innocent people who these shootings hurt are children who live in those neighborhoods who are hit by stray bullets. But the people in those neighborhoods say they do not want the police coming around to protect innocent black children because Black Lives Matter.
