From the Village Voice:
It would appear that the NYPD has agreed to send gang intelligence investigators to the lavish resort island of Bermuda to help out the cops there.
Who arranged this posh retreat? Why, according to Bermuda's paper of record, it was Mayor Michael Bloomberg himself who offered the NYPD's assistance.
We are being impertinent to note that Bloomberg happens to have a $10.5 million vacation home on the island. The mansion has a 500-square-foot bedroom, a "vanishing horizon pool," ocean views, and a living room so posh that "you wouldn't want to come through those doors in a swimsuit," the New York Observer once wrote.
So, let's get this straight: the billionaire mayor in the midst of a budget crisis, with a shrinking police force, has decided to loan experienced police investigators to a resort island where he owns a mansion. Sure, crime is down, but this is ridiculous!
