Our perennial winner of the much coveted Troll Of The Day Award MikeB302000 sinks to his usual incredibly low depths with today’s comment.
A wealthy celebrity or public figure may have real need of protection. Average citizens don’t, especially in New York City these days. I’m sure you’ve read the recent reports.
Gee, I’m amazed at MikeB302000‘s willingness to believe reports since those reports contain statistics.
This map is over a year old but I don’t see a single celebrity listed on it.
Crime is falling in New York City, to near historic lows,
The city is on track, for the second time in three years, to have the fewest homicides in a 12-month period since the current record keeping system began. As of Sunday, there had been 461; the record low was in 2007, when there were 496 for the entire year.
But I think that 461 people murdered would belie the fact that the “average person” in New York City doesn’t need protection.
Also the 890 people forcibly raped, 22,186 people robbed, 24,831 victims of aggravated assault, and nearly 150,000 victims of property crime might disagree. Of course MikeB302000 who is so willing to trust statistics knows better then the victims or other people actually living in the city.
Hey Sparky, why don’t you quit living in a fantasy land where bad things don’t happen to “average” people.
By the way Sparky — since you are visiting here – why not comment? There are many posts about subjects you say you want to discuss, yet you don’t often leave a comment?
Why is that?
