Staying safe in this part of town is no walk in the park. Felony crimes including rape and burglary are up more than 10 percent year-to-date through Sunday in Central Park, according to NYPD statistics.
Six rapes have been reported in the park so far this year.
This time last year, that number was zero.

Now, wonder what the rape rate would be if the to-be perps had to decide whether or not their potential victim was packing heat.
Oh, never mind.

NYPD officers are now personally liable for discrimination in stop and frisk or any type of alleged ‘profiling’. This means any minority criminal that is stopped for any reason can file a civil suit and the individual officers are liable to pay damages, there is no protection from the city or state for actions “in the line of duty”.
The NY police union has already called for cops not to stop anyone for any reason unless they personally see them committing a crime. Cops are afraid of losing pensions and they’re saying they’re not getting out their car until they actually see a crime in progress. It’s going to get a lot worse in NY city.
If the law abiding people of NY were allowed to own and carry firearms the criminal class might consider a change of careers. Michigan has less cops now, but over 400,000 CCW carriers since "shall issue" started. Crime, especially violent crime is down in Michigan. 'nuf said.

How special. I guess I won’t be going to NYC. One time was enough.

Mayor Bloomberg is too busy sticking his nose into the firearms business of the entire United States to be bothered by such trivia as crime in NYC.
Just don’t do something seriously wrong, like ordering a large soda, or Hizzoner will see you’re busted.

But how could this be? Keeping guns out of the hands of honest citizens was supposed to eliminate all crime! They couldn’t possibly be mistaken, could they?

Again, more proof that most major cities are nothing more than breeding grounds for the Democrat created parasites and predators.

(When an American dies Obama lies. And lies, and lies and lies forever.)
Impossible. Thanks to Nanny Doomberg, NYC has gun control, 16-oz, soda control, smoking bans, and all sorts of other BS laws and regulations. There is no crime in NYC. This is all a lie dreamed up by an unfriendly and obviously biased media. All hail, Doomberg, dictator of Moron City.
Bloomberg's top suspect.
When ever a place becomes unsafe for white people it is literally enemy held territory. The people that control that area are in fact a foreign people. A foreign people with different morals and values. A foreign people that are hostile, violent, and deadly dangerous.
