But tell that to the man who was chased 50 blocks by a motorcycle gang and then beaten on a Washington Heights street in broad daylight in front of his wife and two year old.
You can see the video of that chase and the brutal aftermath below the fold.
The man had called 911 from his cell phone as he was being chased by the motorcycle gang, but police never responded to the call until after the man was brutally beaten and the gang got away.
The chase went on for more than 50 blocks, then ended up in Washington Heights where the motorcycle gang pummeled the man.
There were no NYPD officers anywhere in that stretch that saw this chase?
There were no NYPD officers in the area who could respond to the 911 call from the man?
Where the hell were the cops?
Were they too busy down by Zuccotti Park frisking people to respond to Mad Max on the West Side Highway?
As I wrote last night, this is just an unbelievable story.
And yet, it happened in Bloomberg's New York.
Just the way a man was punched in the face and put into a brain dead coma at Union Square a couple of weeks ago:
A white man who was punched in the face in Union Square by a black man who was spewing anti-white sentiment died early Monday at Bellevue Hospital, a police source said.Just the way another man was pounded by a group of men in a bias crime in Sunset Park last week:
Jeffrey Babbitt, 62, fell into a coma after he was randomly attacked Wednesday afternoon by a man who was yelling, “I’m going to punch the first white man I see!”
An attack in Brooklyn is being investigated as a hate crime, but the victim says he's not gay.
David Jimenez, 40, was on South Third Street and Bedford Avenue walking his dogs last Wednesday night.
He says he ignored a group of people screaming gay slurs at him, but he says the group attacked him anyway.
He suffered a broken nose and a fractured eye socket.
Police caught one suspect and charge him with assault and possession of a controlled substance, but the Brooklyn District Attorney's office says the defendant wasn't charged because of discrepancies regarding his identity.
"My head, it cannot comprehend how this is the case, where you literally catch someone with blood in their hands, because when he was taken in, his fist was full of blood, and he's out here walking while I'm in here locked in my house because I'm afraid of going outside," Jimenez said.
Jimenez is now resting at home.
He's expected to undergo surgery on Wednesday.
Wolfson and other Bloomberg shills like to point out the official crime statistics that show the lowest levels of violent crime since the 1940's and 1950's as proof positive why Mayor Bloomberg is a municipal genius.
But the statistics are phonied up - the crime data is manipulated.
We know that the NYPD downgrades crimes from felonies to misdemeanors, we know that they try and talk people out of filing crime reports, we know that they play funky with the stats.
We also know that so much of the data the Bloomberg administration touts as being "historic" is manipulated and phony - from the test scores and graduation rates to the emergency response times.
Given the preponderance of these violent stories in the media, it's difficult to believe the "historic lows" propaganda Wolfson and the other Bloomberg shills hawk on Twitter and elsewhere.
Especially when you have a man and his family chased for more than 50 blocks on the West Side Highway and beaten in broad daylight and not one cop is in sight to stop this or responds to the 911 call the man frantically put in.
And especially when we know the cops manipulate the stats because they've been caught doing it.
