Draconian, ideed.

Rudy G. (as libertine personally as he is) set up such measures when he was mayor. When 9/11 happened he went out and acted quite in character. The New Yorkers expected it, as they should have.

RG cleaned up Times square (or allowed it by allowing capitalists to come in and do it) he had draconian measures against graffitti, panhandlers, window breakers,the mafia (which he’d cleaned up as local federal prosecutor) even jaywalking.

The City ran very well and people could eat and smoke what and wherever they wanted to.

They hated him. Hate.

A reasonable assurance of getting slapped on the wrist isn’t really draconian. I mean caning.

I didn’t hate him. I voted for him. Although - sorry - the jaywalking stuff was really dumb.
