After Bloomberg is Dinkins redux in the waiting. I live here and we all know what is coming. The animals are going to take over again just like the early 90's.
Although rates of most crimes, including all categories of violent crime, made consecutive declines during the last 36 months of his four-year term, ending a 30-year upward spiral and initiating a trend of falling rates that continued beyond his term, Dinkins was hurt by the perception that crime was out of control during his administration. Dinkins also initiated a hiring program that expanded the police department nearly 25%.
I get it now. Mayor David Dinkins is African American and you didn't like him. President Obama is African American and you believe he is a gangster. Seems to be an obvious connection, wouldn't you say?
