From the Daily News:
Subway crime doesn't exist!
That's the claim Mayor Bloomberg made on WOR radio Friday, saying "there is no crime on the subway from a practical sense."
Bloomberg, a frequent 6-train commuter, was responding to a question about whether crime would increase if the MTA cuts 450 token booth clerks as planned.
He estimated there are five crimes a day on subways - "given that we have five million people that take the subway a day, that is essentially zero."
"You can say, 'Well let's not cut that.' Excuse me, what do you want to cut?" he said.
How about your staff? Has the mayor never been on the train when it has been delayed "due to police activity"? Have you even looked at the most recent stats?
