Crimes of opportunity

From A Walk in the Park:

Park Enforcement Police and NYPD and have made multiple arrests for people stealing material from the the Rockaway beach boardwalk destroyed by Hurricane Sandy, NYC Park Advocates has learned.

As aluminum prices continue to rise at least ten thieves have been caught stealing aluminum railings and expensive rain forest Ipe boardwalk wood belonging to the Parks Department.

Police in the 100th Pct. have also written at least a dozen summonses for people stealing items on the street to be sold as scrap metal.

All that these "brave" men-in-blue have done is protect the recycling profit of the contractor that rebuilds the boardwalk.

NONE of those materials will be reused.

Quota time.

M. Public Safety Vallone is now making a run for Borough President.

Remember what a great job he did in helping the Mayor into his 3rd term - and how he did nothing of value as head of the public safety committee on city council.

Public safety?

I think that you might have meant to say,
Mr. Self Interest Vallone.
