City jail system is a revolving door for these criminals. It’s like a vacation home for them.

Anyone noticing more crime? Anyone noticing there are more and more crime related articles being posted? We going to do anything about this or should we just let people get injured and die? Look to your local politicians for solutions. You are being played and they’re not being held accountable. Plenty of things they can do to bring us together and/or fight crime.

I see DeBlasio is making a great start on record setting levels of crime for 2021. The city is spiraling into calamity while he dances with Chirlane, the 850 Million Dollar Woman. No wonder they were dancing so happily! Where’s that money, Chir?

Meanwhile, let’s root for Mayor Duncecap to hit a new crime high in 2021! You can do it Billy!
