Let the cops do their job!

As recently reported, New Yorkers again saw a decrease in crime in 2011 throughout New York City, and for that, we must commend the work of the New York City Police Department. Kudos to Mayor Bloomberg and Police Commissioner Ray Kelly for their continued efforts and diligence in keeping New York City the safest big city in America. It was not too long ago that New Yorkers could only dream of their city earning such honors.

Now, as we continue to enjoy the safety of our hometown, we must continue to allow our police officers to do their jobs in order to keep crime at bay, and to keep us feeling safe in our homes, in our communities, and in our neighborhoods.
