Crime up under ground
From the Daily News:
The number of cops patrolling the subways has dropped while crime underground has risen sharply, officials revealed Monday.
The NYPD Transit Bureau head count is down nearly 10% this year compared with 2010. At the same time, subway crime — fueled by thieves targeting iPhones and other electronics — has surged nearly 18%, according to police stats released at an MTA committee hearing.
