a "Safe" New York--safe for whom?

Posted by DocZodiac on June 11, 1997 at 11:21:59:

Our mayor loves to tout crime stats--which are really based on a switch in the street drug of the moment from crack to heroin--and his lack of dynamic leadership in the rent struggle (Why ISN'T he advocating Home Rule?) The fact is, he's as big a republican greed bucket as anyone we're fighting upstate. We all have read the news in the last few month about European mother being arrested for letting their kids sit outside or play alone. The women have had their children taken from them and face criminal charges. he iunderlying point being made is not that these women are stupid for believing in the civility of their home nations and that those human qualities can tranfer to New York City, the unpoken rule is "HEY, STUPID--this is NEW YORK!"--in other words, this town is ANYTHING BUT SAFE. So, why do we sit still when people coming here from all over the country and world are being LIED to? EVERYONE SHOULD GET OUT ON THE INTERNET AND WORLD-WIDE WEB AND SET THE PEOPLE STRIAGHT! Tell them: 'DON'T BELIEVE THE HYPE! THIS TOWN IS THE MOST UNHOSPITABLE IN THE WORLD--SO STAY AWAY! Don't even CONSDIER moving here!
