Bloomberg crime stats for NYC

Goldy | Mayor Michael Bloomberg has been free to spend his fortune on campaign advertisements touting the continued drop in crimes police have reported. His campaign website declares that, under Bloomberg, "the neighborhoods of New York have become safer than ever."

World Can't Wait, NYC: Hundreds Walk-Out, Thousands March

Stanley W. Rogouski and a report by Jed Brandt | Jed Brandt writes: "Of the core crowd, 75% were high school and college students who had walked out from city-wide high schools and Manhattan campuses. The crowd was energetic, and noticably distinct from the "usual suspects" of the New York activist left who were totally missing in action as coherent groupings. Interestingly enough, this made the crowd distinctly more lively than ritual protests peopled by the activist scene, and more intimate and human-level than the largest mass mobilizations organized by UFPJ and ANSWER. There was a noticable drop in "grumbling at the margins." [Coverage at US IMC || More Photos]

Stanley W. Rogouski writes: "Several thousand people showed up to demand an end to the Bush Regime as part of a nationwide series of demonsrations put on by World Can't Wait. The march was dominated by NYC high school kids who walked out of school to protest the Bush administration. more...  115 Comments

A bill of impeachment should be introduced right away more...  4 Comments
