It's that time of year again

From DNA Info:

Police across the city reported an uptick in crime in the past month, NYPD statistics show — a trend officials are blaming on the warmer weather.

Sixteen precincts across the city reported an increase in crime between April 13 and May 10, according to NYPD data.

Police have long pointed to a correlation between weather and crime — including NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton, who penned an op-ed in the Wall Street Journal in 2012 linking the two during a crime surge in Chicago.

Ahh, summer! The Lemon Ice King of Corona and a spike in crime. Here comes the Mister Softee truck. I wonder if he's still selling drugs in Bowne Park.

Time to oil up my 380. LOL!
It's a lot quicker than calling 911 and waiting 20 minutes.

Just decriminalize rapes and robberies. With the bulk of them being committed by blacks and Hispanics, we probably only think of rape and robbery as crimes because we are so racist. Right Wilhelm? Right Al? Right Melissa, Jumamawe and the rest of the Shitty Council?

Bad new days ahead in Fun City. Stay paranoid and vigilant. Be aware of your surroundings.

The city is so overcrowded no one will even notice. Except the luckless few who will be victimized.

For nostalgic purposes, we need a new serial killer with a talking dog, a black out, and some creatively dressed groups of kids.

Shit, we already have graffiti coming back. But it's officially become a legit art form that can be marketed to luxury rentals.

We could use Bob Grant right now, with "Sfaccim Junior" destroying the state from Albany, just like his old man did. RIP Bob.

You Bob Grant fans: If you sorely miss Frank of Queens incisive unique commentary, you can listen to him AND John of Staten Island every Friday night at 8PM (Cheryl of New Jerky the Garbage State too). Past shows have been archived:

(Periodically they play old sound bites from the Bob Grant Show.)

Bullshit! It's not the warm weather,it's the lack of cops. Senior guys on vacation.Summertime brings aal those details that take cops from local precincts(except Manhattan). We need more cops (and civilians) in the outer boroughs.invest in good exterior lighting ,locks and an alarm. Remember,it's easy to get a shotgun in nyc. Just make sure you know the law and how to use's what joe biden would do.....

Am I the only one who is watching less and less TV?

Why? Reality shows (nasty and violent), crime, crime, crime.

First came dumbing down America (success). Now teach them disrespect and violence.

Unfortunately, it's only going to get hotter!

a) Hire more Police Officers
b) Step up "Stop & Frisk"


Pray for a cold summer!
