I don't know if your taking stupid pills but one has nothing to do with the other! The mosque and ticket blitz creates revenue/jobs for the city. The police patrol the streets and have a very good strategy. Unfortunately this incident is one to many.

1)Calling someone an "idiot" or on "stupid pills" will not make ur argument stronger.
2)As a resident in this neighborhood there is a huge increse in crime. Ask people that live here. There was a shooting this friday on south 8th and berry. There was a holdup on whyte avenue and south 10 last tuesday!
Even Nypd statistics have shootings up in area (and this is after bloombergs cops messed up the data-with no heads rolling thereafter).
Please study ur facts on the ground via ny'ers or via nypd statistics online. Thanks!

Wrong! Increaing revenue via tickets and antu american mosques is not a mayors job! Crime should be a mayors #1 job. Giuliany was the man and a shame he isn't mayor anymore.
Bloomberg is an out of touch incompetent mayor. Shame on him for betraying ny!
Fight crime! Don't fight car drivers!

1st of all i wish a refuhe shlaimo and a speeduy recovery,
and a thank you to all volunteers who serve all of our communities "hattzolo" "shomrim" "chaveirim" and let's not forget "misaskim" "bikur cholim" etc. hashem should and will pay them and theyr families ten fold.
i don't think that it's the mayors fault, of course it's easy to point fingers at the mayor, but let's not forget that many in the pd and the parking ticket enforcement hate us, even more than some of you in this group of responders, and they hate the great mayor and will do anything to retaliate against us for electing the mayor, so some of you here have in conman with all the Jew haters and antisemit's. so lets stop the bashing and have some "ahavas chinom" a gutten chidesh

I think the next mayor who will run should make the rule that every police station should have more reports and that should show how good they are in protecting crime .
where is our previous mayor who was tough-on-crime?

Y can't police identify the Perps if the situation is that The 15 Passenger Van was Rented? It was NOT stolen!?!!! Usually a Guy rents a Car leaves his Full info @ The Rental!!?! & By the Way The Freeky Police didn't have the effort to get in pursuit after the perps, they said, 90 & 79 Precinct are different territories....... So ther for Shomrom Followed but shomrom haded to Pull away as the armed Perps threatened them!!

Leats face it if you leave your car a minute extra by the meter youll get a ticket 90% then why and how can people get shot and police arrive like ten minutes after isnt this crazy doesnt this show on the leadership on our city how things are running wrong???? dont be naive if stopping crime would be a good income and revenue for the mayer THERE WOULD NOT BE NO SHOOTING and thats a fact !!!!! we should be upset as we cant do anything else its his last term he doesnt care but the question is why dont scream?

Some times Limo service is cheaper than taxis for airport rides. So if you are planning to fly for vacation or pleasure call few limousine services and you will be surprised to know that the rates are not that high as compaired to Taxi, most of the time its a few dollars more than a cab and some times even less than a taxi. Some of the limo service providers offer shares rides and they are deffinetly cheaper than taxi.
Give it a try and you will be surprised !!
