NY Post ^ | 1/28/14 | Jamie Schram

As his first month as police commissioner under Mayor de Blasio winds down, Bill Bratton is already facing some sobering news — a 33 percent spike in murders across the city.

According to the latest statistics released Tuesday, there have been 28 homicides so far this year compared to 21 in the same ­period last year.

That puts the city on course for at least one murder a day.

New Yorkers might want to rent The Warriors and The (original) Taking of Pelham 1-2-3 for a glimpse at what’s coming their way.

1970’s Big Apple or bust!

And in open carry Detroit, murder was down 7% last year. (Police Chief Craig has also restarted the stop and frisk policy ended by chairman Young many years ago)

Ask the mayor, “How did your day go?”

Crime WAS down in NYC—until Comrade de Blasio came along.

Hey, when the morons in NYC voted to put a Commie into the Mayor’s Office, they fully deserve what they get.

My give a damn is broken when it comes to these Libtard Havens.

A lifetime New Yorker friend, who understands from experience the relationship between whose mayor and the crime rate, predicted this would be one of the bad results if D’Blasio were to become mayor.

Saw them, but I don’t understand why and Errol Flynn movie is in this list.

THE WARRIORS: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0047975/?ref_=nm_flmg_act_13

Ok, I’m just being smart.

One of the scenes that scared me when I watched "The Warriors" as a kid was the Baseball Furies. Imagine a bunch of freaks wearing makeup looking like NY Yankee rejects chasing you with bats.

And yes, that was Lawrence Fishburne in that one scene in the movie.

"The Warriors" and "Streets of Fire" were two of Walter Hill's strangest films. Both are underrated today.

His latest, "Bullet to the Head", is brilliant. He isn't losing his touch.

The elite are good at grandstanding, making rules for everyone else, and following people over the edge of cliffs using poor judgment but lack wisdom or understanding as to the true nature of men, reality, rational thinking, or common sense. In other words they live in lala land and we should not listen to them.

Expect to see rents and prices for apartments and homes decline. This happened in the early 1990s. NYC has a history of wide swings in real estate values.

He’s an excellent director. A throwback to the great 70s films.
