  1. Yet the DeBlasio narrative would lead us to believe crime is down. What’s really going on is the police have their hands tied and can’t do their jobs, therefore there are less crimes on the book. Only when a victim reports something does it hit the books.

    Take a walk from 14th and First to Union Square after dark, and then tell me with a serious face that crime is down.
