Subway Crime? What Subway Crime? (Redux)

Mayor Moneybags defended cutting cops and subway employees last week on his radio show, saying that "there is no crime on the subway from a practical sense."

He estimated that there are about 5 crimes a day on the subway, which is great "given that we have five million people that take the subway a day, that is essentially zero."

So according to the mayor, cutting cops and subway employees is not a big deal since the city is the safest it's been since Peter Stuyvesant's day.

Of course that was last week, before the newspapers reported that for 2010 murders are up 23% and shootings up 16%.

I wonder if any of those crimes are happening on the subway and therefore the mayor would be full of shit?

Hey - whattya know - they are and he is:

Two men were killed and another injured after an early morning confrontation on a subway train.

The police responded to a call shortly after 5 a.m. Sunday and found the three men when the train was stopped at the station at Varick and Houston streets.

Two of the men had been stabbed multiple times in the chest and were pronounced dead at a nearby hospital. The third man had been stabbed in the arm and neck and was in stable condition.

Police said the stabbings occurred during a confrontation between two groups. The authorities were searching for those involved.

Now here is a question for Hizzfullofshitness: Would he consider the stabbing deaths of two men and the injury of the third one crime or three?

I bet he considers it just one.

That way, he can have four more crimes take place on the subway during a 24 hour period and technically not be considered full of shit.

Even though he is.
